1916673 tn?1420236870 The anesthetics themselves according to my own vet, are safer than they used to be and less stressful for older dogs. Then he will need good nursing care and support afterwards. You can expect he will take a little longer to recover than a 4 year old would. And at first may be off his food because his gums may be too sore to enjoy eating. But careful nursing will help.
Avatar f tn Before any journey, you need to find out where you are. In my other post, I outlined my history with chronic medical issues and getting hooked on dilaudid. I won't go back over that, but you can find it in my posts. Where I am now is taking 8-20mg of dilaudid by IV every 3-4 hours. Due to pain doc issues, I wont be getting any more pills. My pain is not in full force right now, so I am moving forward to get myself off dilaudid. First step is to get off the needle.
Avatar n tn I really think you hit it right with the Chronic pancreatitis. Although Chronic pancreatitis is very hard to diagnose. People with CP often show nothing with blood tests. Even at the time of an attack. The Dr who did my ERCP with menometry said the only way to truly find out if CP is your problem is the measure the pressure in the duct that goes directly into the pancreas. Which they don't like to do because of the risk involved.
Avatar f tn I get RLS and jitters. I hate it. My pancreas acts up too. I'm on them because I have bad chronic pancreatitis and cystic fibrosis. I'm trying to wean but it has been difficult b/c of pain and w/d's and the docs say teh w/d can hurt the baby. So, if I am dependent that does that mean the baby has a higher chance of being too? I've heard so many conflicting things. I talked to a neonatologist that said it totally depends and noone knows. But, they must have some idea.
10805050 tn?1420939120 Somehow when I went through 7 months in hospital and Skilled nursing facility from major Cirrhosis problems cause by Portal Hypertension, my Hep C never attacked. My viral load is extremely low at 15,283. I have never had treatment for it and my liver seems to be fighting it, the Dr. says. Of course it could pop it's nasty face at me at any given moment, so I am definitely interested in treatment.
Avatar f tn Diabetes is usually only a risk if a patient has lived for quite some time - even years - with chronic pancreatitis. It all depends on how much damage is done to the Islets of Langerhans cells that produce insulin. One thing that concerns me is that morphine is being used for pain control.

Avatar n tn It also isn't good to stop heroin (or methadone) during pregnancy, since the baby goes through withdrawal inside you--where you can't do much to take care of him. Now that you are off of it, the baby should be fine, but going on and off heroin or methadone in pregnancy is unhealthy for you and for your baby." It would be better to do the narcotics!!
Avatar n tn And if you had any injury lower down to your back, I believe it should be investigated. I'm hoping national health care is repealed before our health care quality diminishes to rationing, like I've heard is happening in the U.K.. I'm glad if you have the means to go private and try to really get help for yourself.
1932256 tn?1327949940 the drinking is only making the withdrawals worse, and this is going to keep going on while he's weaning? he will also have to get off the alcohol as well, so there goes more withdrawals on top of everything else. He's just going round and round. I was getting deeply depressed while on my pain meds, and then the doctor wanted to " fix" that with antidepressants! I thought, another pill to fix the other pill? No way!

Avatar n tn I know all about the hell of chronic still dealing with chronic back pain, one day at a time, still narcotic free.
Avatar f tn I held my mom as she died and I told her it was ok to go, not to be afraid and I promised I would take care of dad....all this is still surreal. Just remember that you are an extension of your mom and she would never want you her little girl or your family to suffer. That would be the last thing your mom would want. Whenever you feel sad, just take a good look in the mirror and see her eyes, hair, skin, lips, nose,...your mom will live within you!
Avatar n tn The risk of permanent nerve injury outweighs the benefit of IV insertion in these areas. Standards of Practice The Infusion Nursing Standards of Practice can be used in court to determine whether a nurse delivered appropriate infusion care to a patient. The standards state “site selection should avoid areas of joint flexion.”1 The wrist and antecubital fossa are areas of joint flexion.
Avatar n tn Im so pleased to have found you all. 61/2yrs of chronic back pain,the painful epidural and cortisone shots, muscle relaxers galore, weight put on by steroids and anti-inflammatories that worsened the pain, arthritis pills, pills I don't know what they were, let alone the ones I forgot and OH YELL, can't forget all those narcotic pain meds-darvocet,Tylenol w/codeine{3&4}, oxycotin, and last but not least, VICODIN, it's nice to have someone who can actually relate to my misery.

541150 tn?1306037443 Abby just told me he is sending High Fives to S and a HISSSS to the beagle LOL. Catshapedheart, I know you care. I will keep you updated on his progress, and don't feel too bad about not knowing a whole lot about IBD; most of us here know little to nothing about it, and that's why we're all here, for information, knowledge, and support. I'm glad you've decided to stick around. Thank you ALL. My cat sends everyone Loud Purrs!!
Avatar n tn Until the person reaches this point there are only educated guesses This is only reliable in the face of supportive care only. In other words no heroics. And an accurate assessment of level of consciousness may be skewed in the presence of drugs used to make the person comfortable. However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control.
280891 tn?1261016650 The advances in mercury toxicology have turned full circle, the knowledge of mercury poisoning comes from studies of cases of acute poisoning. The present danger presents itself as a chronic, low-level chronic exposure, also known as mercurialism and micromercurialism. Most people are familiar with elemental mercury in liquid state found in a thermometer or thermostat.
Avatar n tn If you need opioid treatment for chronic pain, and it works, then get the treatment. If you're having side effects from the medication that are causing you to think twice, then that is another story. The withdrawal has several stages, the first being 4-5 days of severe flu-like symptoms. That is usually followed by a period of depression and low energy. Different people experience different things for different periods of time. But the bottom line is if you want to quit, quit.
Avatar f tn She is still accepting water and Pedialyte, but very little. She has given up now. I plan to hold her throughout the night to talk to her and tell her it is O.K. to go. My family wanted to be here to support us tomorrow morning, but you know, Cissy would not want that, she is a daddy and mama's girl so it will just be the four of us: daddy, mommy, Sandy and Charleston.
Avatar n tn I am on 24mg...I have tried to go down to 18mg but I felt too sick. I plan on reducing by 2 mg/week until I hit 18mg...then I will decrease by 1mg/week. I might have to do every 2 weeks at the lower doses. I wish I could come up with a magic solution but discomfort is inevitable. Under 15mg is going to be hard but 0mg will be interesting to say the least. It doesn't hit you until you have taken nothing for a couple of days due to the long life of methadone.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you have an awesome plan. Stick with it buddy. Best of luck to you and come back and talk to us. I'm on day 6 and feeling so very much better. We will be thinking about you and praying for you too!
Avatar f tn I started to lose a lot of weight and develop other symptoms such as headaches, weightloss, abdominal pain/irritation and chronic fatigue. I also started to feel very isolated and depressed as I couldn't have any type of social life. After seeing many different doctors and specialists (a Gastroenterologist, Endocrinologist, Oncologist, Hematologist) I finally seen a private doctor who had some blood tests sent to the US from the UK for diagnosis.
Avatar n tn A big belly from fluid trapped like in one post is often from liver problem and can be very serious. I'm not in health care, but I have been trying to figure out weight gain in my daughter, so I've learned a bit along the way. Her situation is probably medication side effect, but we are ruling out cushing's.
Avatar n tn Is there a risk on keeping my gallbladder as it is ? What risk percentage do I have of having a pancreatitis crisis ? I would just like to hear another opinion. Thank you. a.
