Common Questions and Answers about Horse abscess in foot


Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar f tn I saw the mS nurse about the possibility of a relapse - she thinks it probably isn't but residual fallout from a perfect storm of a couple vigorous infections i can't shake and a stress fracture in my foot. Even if it was a relapse, treating with steroids is not an option because that would interfere with the healing of the bone. Students graduated this past weekend and this week we have a number of adult events on campus, and then next week it will be very quiet.
1462810 tn?1327364049 At that point I would have put horse hockey in my mouth if someone had told me it would stop the abscess pain. I (finally) got out the garlic, cut a slice, wrapped it in a bit of gauze and put it in my mouth - yes, it burned incredibly, agonizingly, but it was nothing compared to the abscess. After 45 minutes the pain stopped. Period. The nasty taste was still there, I'm sure my breath was awful, but who cares?
198419 tn?1360245956 He has about a 10ft home theater projection screen. Yay! And every evening after work, going to take care of our horse. Soaking her foot in Ebsom salt, benadine, and warm water. We're hoping if she has abscess, it will work it's way out. If not, and she has a coffin bone fracture, we're not sure what's going to happen to the poor old girl.

My wife's parents have about 20 horses so I have plenty to choose from!! I've been through this a few times in the past so I know what I have to do. The difference is I am gonna do it this time. I have no other choice. I cannot keep living a live with pills. I will not keep living a life with pills. No excuses.

250084 tn?1303311035 I'm proud of you for hanging in there and not giving up! That's the key to all of this cr*p, you know? Just putting one foot in front of the other, not looking back and questioning yourself and looking forward to the day of wellness. That's all I've been able to do. I'm still in there, pushing forward to that day. I hope you're feeling back up to par soon. If you're up to it, I'll connect with you in about a little over 2 weeks when I come through your town on the way back from my appt.
Avatar n tn CALIFORNIAN LAWSUIT re PAXIL can be found here: and here are some extracts from it: 22.The "patient years" standard is a sham by anyone's common sense.It works like this.Assume 366 patients are selected at random to test Paxil.Three hundred and sixty five (365) patients take Paxil and suffer horribly the first day--immediately quitting the test.These patients are called, not surprisingly, "losers.
Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.
356518 tn?1322267242 tried the normal pt/ steroids, 2 epidurals then broke my left leg and had a c rush injury basically knee down including the foot Jan 2010. I was with a horse at the vet clinic and while the horse was sedated it for some reason tipped over and landed on my leg. I broke both tib/fib and several foot fractures and obviously a bunch of tears and other soft tissue trauma. I developed RSD in that leg as well.
Avatar f tn I came home on Thursday and was five pounds heavier for the first week.....I was swollen due to being in stirrups in surgery for 4 hours. My thighs were numb the first day or so. I am feeling great today, sitting here at my computer. One day i feel 20 years younger and the next day I am tired and achy. I am 56 yoa and I think this is the best thing I ever did in my life. Since my first prolapse I have had bad to severe back pain and upon waking from anestesia, I knew it was gone!
Avatar n tn My doctor has said only that I have arthritis in my knee and I have to be patient. On at least three occasions, I have been in tears in his office and asking what to do about it. He still tells me be patient. This is surely not normal.
Avatar f tn I sleep at different times than my husband because I use a heated mattress pad, otherwise the chills prevent me getting to sleep. In addition I use a personal foot heaters to bring warmth to my feet and legs. However the continued use of these heaters causes first and second degree burns on my feet and ankles. One thing I have not tried is drinking more water each day. Maybe dehydration is the cause of the chills.
Avatar n tn In 2002 I was riding with a group in the mts when my friends horse kicked at my horse, but got my leg about a quarter of the way up from my ankle. It was an open break with the large broke in two pieces. The Dr. put a titanium rod through the knee through the bone and screwed it in at he top with two screws. He told me how wonderful this was because I left the hospital the next day with no cast and my healing time was supposed to be shorter. OK.
Avatar n tn It was only like a 2 foot drop though but that really hurt. This last time it happened i was driving and it was the worst yet. I clenched my teeth, and unfortunatly closed my eyes cause it hurt so bad; i was in tears. I ended up going in the ditch and taking out a road sign. I told the cop what happened and needless to say he didn't believe me n i got a ticket anyways.
Avatar n tn I think you should get some normal chewing gum and every now and then have one instead,do it really slowly,but just try to get in the habit of taking a non nicotine chewy when you can,gradually you will swap over to the nico free chewing gum,but you may end up chewing for life,and this can lead to decreased tooth cavities,not such a bad thing really.
551343 tn?1506834118 I was now using crutches and a wheelchair outdoors. I was referred to an orthotist for the spasticity in right foot, I now had a brace. MS specialist concerned at my progression requested another mri. This mri took 15 months to get which must be an NHS record. My brain mri showed no further changes so I was discharged after being with him for 4 years. I went into lock down mode as I always told ms specialist I didn't feel it was ms.
211940 tn?1267884866 I was diagnosed with osteoporosis back in 1998.But it wasn't until I'd broken my arm, my foot, and then a rib that this was found and since then it has only gotten worse not better. And I've broken more ribs. Even being on Calcium, Evista, Actonel, and Boniva, all at the same time. Also at that time I was diagnosed with COPD( I burned my lungs with ammonia & bleach cleaning a camper in the winter) The more I had bronchitis the worse I got till I only got pneumonia all the time.

Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar n tn About 10 years about I started having these sores develop in my vaginal region. They almost looked like little blisters. I will just call them Vaginal lesions. When they are about to show up the area will start to itch and burn slightly. Then the vaginal lesion arrives there is considerable pain. It will last for about a week then go away. When they first appeared I would get one or two at a time then they would go away, but a couple of weeks later a would get another. I was miserable.
