Avatar f tn I hd my last MRI 2 years ago and i had move in my eyes after surgery but now it's become less than that time
Avatar f tn Im sorry for not getting back to all of you I had a bad week. I was referred to a new Dr as mine was retiring and this Dr doesnt believe in Narcotics so I was taken off the vicodin--cold turkey. this Dr would not even give me enough to taper off. The only thing that works for the pain but what was worse was the withdrawls for 3 days. Needless to say I am seeing a new Dr this week.
233488 tn?1310696703 Quite some time back a survey was taken of retina surgeons about letting their patients return to full activities after retinal detachment surgery (much more extensive than what your husband had). Almost all retina surgeons allowed full activity after a variable period of time (with the more extensive surgery generally several months).
Avatar n tn Was in agony and went back to the doc daily. I week after surgery went to doc and he gave me Detrol LA and the stuff that turns your urine orange as well as said to take advil 3x a day. He said this should help me get through the night. By midnight I was in a full anxiety attack because I couldn't void at all and felt like I needed to go. Had to go to the ER and new cath put in. There was 300cc in bladder. Very depressed at this point, really upset. Went back to doc next afternoon.
Avatar n tn My urologist said I have a prolapsed bladder, he is waiting to do surgery on that until after this next surgery. I'am discouraged thinking of going through another surgery!
Avatar f tn Recently, since around 2/17 (8 days after surgery), I've had a sharp pain in my abdomen on my left side, about 2-2.5 inches away from my incision and inside. It's always hurt to laugh, cough, sneeze, etc since surgery, but the pain now feels like it's increasing to where I can't do anything like sit, shower, or walk without a sharp pain. (Laying down/getting up has been excruciating since the surgery - first back aches and now this sharp pain.
Avatar f tn Good Luck on your surgury tomorrow. Just remember to watch out for any tingling after surgery in hands, feet, and/or mouth areas. This is a sign your calcium has dropped and you should tell your nurses ASAP. Other than that soak up all the attention you'll be getting from your "second smile"!! Tomorrow is the 6 wks mark for me post surgery and I'm 5 days pst RAI and am doing great!! I was up wandering the halls the next morning and I know you'll do just as well!!!
368844 tn?1262322947 I am curious as to what to expect after my surgery. I had surgery on Dec 20th and I feel basically fine. My steri strips haven't come off yet, but are getting sticky (gummy). I feel hot constantly and have a hard time sleeping.
Avatar n tn I ended up needing a blood patch because the hole in my spinal column didn't heal itself. After that I gave in to surgery and decided to get the lumbar shunt on June 21. For the most part the headaches went away but it took me a LONG time to get used to the pressure differences in my head. When I sneezed, coughed, beard down to pass gas or have a bowel movement.
Avatar f tn My symptoms before the surgery weren't bad, but they were bothersome. But now after the surgery, they are considerably worse! And after a year and a half after the surgery my Dr. finally decided to see me again to see what I was talking about. I told him about the horrible headaches that I get more than half of the days out of the week, the muscle spasms that I feel from my head to my toes, and I feel like my muscles a dying on me?
Avatar n tn It became more and more prominent to the point that I couldn't get my breath and this made me panicky. After about an hour of this, I could not bear it anymore and we went to our local ER. The physician was pretty sure it was gallbladder and, when we told him about the Atlanta ER visit, he felt sure the two situations were related. However, they did blood, urine, xrays, cat scans and, three days later, a hydascan. My gallbladder was functioning normally.
Avatar n tn Or is he more along the lines of gasping and coughing? A short, sharp snorting sound is called a reverse sneeze. It's not, however, related to sneezing, it just sounds like a sneeze that's going inward instead of outward, that's why it's called that. Reverse sneezing is caused by a spasm of the soft palate. You can usually get them to stop it by massaging their throat and getting them to swallow. It happens in cats as well as in dogs.
Avatar n tn I am having persistent bone-like sternum pain 15 weeks after bypass surgery, and it is not getting better. A CT scan report said the following. FINDINGS: "No evidence of an osteomyelitis or sternal destruction is seen. There is no peristernal abscess or bony erosion. The margins of the sternum are somewhat irregular and there is overlap of 2-3 mm with the left side of the sternum anterior to the right in the more cephalad portion of the sternum.
Avatar f tn ) I just found my note from Selma and wanted to introduce myself! I had my first surgery just over three years ago and spent the first year after knowing something was wrong but could not get them to listen to me. Luckily I was not having pain attacks like you but it was worse than before surgery and the headaches and neck pain were crazy. In my case they used a synthetic patch when they opened the dura and my head did not like it at all. It has been a long three years!
Avatar f tn question and I am a bit embarrased to ask, but I want to know if I am okay or not..... Is it normal to have discharge after the surgery? and after 5-6 weeks after? Okay, now I'm really embarassed!! Sorry for an odd question, but I don't know if this is still normal?? Thanks again for all your help and great replies. Take care everyone and chat with you again!!
Avatar f tn I have been going back to the Dr's every 4 days so that he can suction out the sinus and I can not begin to tell you what comes out, not human but after I can breath again. Than after approx 3 days I block up and can't breath through my nose again. My jaw is in pain from mouth breathing. I am on antibiotics for 24 days, steroids to reduce swelling, anti nausea medicine and pain pills. I found this site today because I am starting to get a odd smell, not tire like but almost sweet.
211043 tn?1337054301 I was diagnosed with stage 4 endo last year, I was covered all over, i was on acid medication for six months prior but after my surgery a year later all the symptoms are back, i hvae pressure on my left lung and the only thing that i think this surgery did was release the pain in my rectum by removing a large recto vaginal nodule so i am able to have a bm with less pain. I am on marvelon21 which i recommend. I was prone to getting major migraines before but havent had one since.
Avatar n tn But i think the reason i had a positive on the 2nd test is because my skin was red but i had NO itching and if you just touch my skin it turns red I am not convinced because i did a lot of dust allergy prevention and it didnt work plus the coincidence that i did not have any turbinate swelling problems until after the adnoid surgery and the cutting of the granulated tissue that didnt heal right after that my turbs started swelling my turbs werent swelling the few months before that.
1488094 tn?1289350916 I've been recently buying more pjs and nice big comfy jogging pants to lay around the house in after surgery- I've also been making and freezing food as my hubby is not the best of cooks and I'm sure I wont be able to much after the surgery for a while! Try not to stress about it too much- just think about how much better you will feel once its all over. Would love to hear how you get on as I think our stories are pretty similiar- best of luck.
Avatar f tn I have 2 small children a husband and I work full time, but I would like to know how I can plan after the surgery...I've been reading this wonderful forum for the last few months, and finally got the courage to write on it. I think it's amazing how much support there is and I thank you for that. I live just outside of Toronto, Canada, but the hospital is St. Mike's in TO. Thanks in advance for any advice...
Avatar f tn It's a normal occurrence after surgery, the fluid could be draining from the inflammatory changes ager surgery. But if there is accompanying fever or discoloration of the drainage or pain or redness, please consult your doctor. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Please tell me your experiences (good or bad) after surgery. After the surgery how long did you have unbearable pain. I need to undergo this surgery as well and your responses will give help me a lot.
175915 tn?1189759422 Anyone else told the same thing? Wondering how you feel after surgery as well. Will be spending the night and going home the next day. Should my husband spend the night with me?
388423 tn?1208311971 This puts me in tears and in so much pain I am dizzy and in the bed for an hour or more after. Is this a normal sideffect or should I contact the doctor. I really dont want to be a whinny baby, but with the fever I have had the last couple of days and now the pain I am not sure if I should be concerned or if this is normal. Thanks for any advice you can give.
Avatar f tn Which kind of sucked. After the accident, I felt pretty much OK. I walked into the hospital on my own power. They sort of checked me out and said I was alright. But over the next couple weeks I felt this weird tightness down my right leg. And when I tried to stretch it I'd feel pain in my back. And then a few weeks after the accident, I woke up one morning in excruciating pain. My right hip had crawled up under my armpit and I "walked" like some kind of shambling monster.
Avatar f tn I'm 51, and have never had surgery !! I will be having a full abdominal surgical proceedure on the 29th of October. The surgeon said she wold have to do a vertical incision, belly button to pubic bone, in order to visualize what is going on in there. I have a 15cmX 14cmX 11cm ovarian tumor, with CA 125 at 19.9.
Avatar n tn It sounds like it was quite an extensive surgery and depending on exactly what went on and if there were any complications, recovery may be prolonged. In general some patients do feel better right away after spine surgery, while others take weeks to months to get back to where they were before the symptoms began, while others have chronic pain at or around the site of surgery. As your disorder is rare, there's not much literature out there regarding prognosis and outcome.
