No one can predict <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> long a person will live. Each person's liver disease is unique. Only a hepatologist with full knowledge of a person's health situation can even estimate how long they may have before they die from End-Stage Liver Disease or liver cancer. I can tell you that if you develop liver cancer and it is not treated and it spread outside of the liver typical the person has less than 6 months to live.
Avatar m tn After a month of different type of antibiotics for pnuemonia, I finally got the right one (Levaquin) which cleared my lungs and got permission to begin exercising (slowly) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> Monday. Has anyone experienced recovery from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pneumonia</span> and what I can expect during the recovery period? I have an anxiety problem and I can't tell if my current symptoms of fatigue, dizziness, weakness are normal recovery symptoms or are they a product of my anxiety?
Avatar f tn 1) Should I be worried that my cough lasted so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> or is that normal? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> should the fatigue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> for? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span>es this mean I have a bad immune system? Could smoking ciggarettes be preventing me from getting better? Okay the second thing I'm worried about is my ears... So two days ago I noticed a slight loss of hearing in my right ear. It kinda felt like it was muffled or like I was in a high altitude.
Avatar n tn I am so stressed and miserable already less than 24 hours into it.. my son too.. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span>es the worst part <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span>? I am really fine with laying around in bed resting but I can't sleep due to my head and wanting to hurl and tummy pain... Please give advice.... I spent $30 on juice and soup for us so that we would have something - I am drinking and forcing my son to drink though he argues repetitively...
Avatar n tn Given a PFT while running on treadmill, that came back no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>. These <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> few tests were administered while on my medications, never coming off. I tested negative for allergies, but have non allergic Rhinitis. I have been seen for possible Vocal Cord Disfunction and was told that my vocal cords work normal. I was told to give a blood test for c.
Avatar n tn My question is, is it typical for these antibiotics to take such a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time to take effect? If not, are there other possible diagnoses for these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>, and if so should we take him to another vet for a second opinion? If it is typical for recovery to take this long, is there anything we can do to help him besides what we've been doing thus far? Would any sort of exercise help? Are there things we should be avoiding?
Avatar n tn 5 to 4 hours cause the pain is so unbearable. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span>es anybody know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> this is suppose to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span>? I feel like I am dying, I can't even sleep in my bed I am in a recliner in the living room.
Avatar f tn It sounds like Mycoplasma pneumoniae. It <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span>es cause walking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pneumonia</span> by your description. Yes the best thing for it is to get an expectorant like you have and make yourself cough. Also, steaming in the shower is good. It takes a month or more to get over the cough and being tired but those are the usual symptoms. It doesn't sound like regular pneumonia. That is usually caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae and causes a very high fever and lots of mucus on the lungs and so forth.
Avatar m tn I have smoked, but i was a person that smoked maybe 2 packs a month at the heaviest periods and sometimes never a consistent smoker. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span>es this scenario sound to you? Are we on the right path? What are the chances something is serious here?
Avatar n tn it is unclaer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span>. but here are some of the thing s you can do to help contol it. wear cotton underwear, do not wear nylon or any other kind but cotton because allows your genitals to breathe while t6he other fabrics trap moisture and that cntributes to the growth of the yeast. avoid using soaps that arent pH balanced. you may want to use johnson & johnson baby soap. sleep naked to let air circulate around the afected area.
Avatar f tn I had walking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pneumonia</span> four months ago. Now I have it again. I don't know why I have it again. last time I had it I threw all of my cosmetics, tooth brushes, toiletries away because I was afraid I was re-infecting myself. I bought all new make up when I got better, should I throw it all away again to avoid reinfection?
Avatar n tn sorry to hear about your difficulties, i have pain in my back and right lung, its painfull!!!
Avatar f tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span>es it take to recover fully? do other people still get some pain months after the original infection? does it just take ages to recover, or could this be recurring again? Any help/advice/stories of others who are recovering from this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I am also transiting through menopause compounding the overall problem. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> can I use this medicine. My doc says I can use it for 20 years safely.
Avatar f tn Kaiser continues to abuse people and their is no way to stop them. Lawyers are afraid to go up against them. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> many more have to suffer? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> many of you are here because of doctors neglect?
Avatar n tn I went to an allergy doctor, and was tested for allergies, and nothing. For the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> year and a half I've had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pneumonia</span> four times, the last two were double pneumonia. I had a CT scan done in October and they found vague cloudy patches on both of my lungs (scary). My pulmonologist doesn't think it's cancer, though they can't rule it our yet. I took Zithromax for three weeks in November when I had the double pneumonia, and the pre-existing cough went away, 100%.
5264083 tn?1404669334 I know many women have experienced late periods from antibiotics. I'm hoping that someone can tell me their experiences, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it took for their period to come.
Avatar n tn I believe pneumonia generally shows up on x-rays, so I'd wait until Monday & see what the docs have to say. Staying away from alcohol, resting, eating properly & lots of fluids is still a good idea to help you recover. Viruses can last a long time & there aren't many effective treatments for them. If you worsen or don't improve after whatever time interval the docs suggest on Monday, you might want to have a re-check to be sure you don't develop an infection.
Avatar f tn Invest in a strong metal cat litter scooper. It will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time and makes litter box cleaning easy. Scoop the waste into a plastic bag and then tightly close the plastic bag before putting it in the garbage can. Wipe down any soiled area of the litter box with a slightly damp cloth and either some general household cleaner or even just regular soap. Immediately wash your hands with soap and warm water.
Avatar m tn I have the exact same thing as you do and i'm getting very frustrated and I didn't feel to awlful bad, but went to the store and did a little shopping not much 2 days in a row, I can't even stay at home, my house hold is very active, had to stay at my mom's to recover. but i did go down for i complete afternoon and evening and came back to mom's that night. Now i feel i have over done it and i'm very weak and back to shortness of breathe. i'm totally right there with you on feeling fustrated.
665881 tn?1248930597 We really do not know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> MS has been around. It may have been called something else over a 100 years ago. We didn't have the machines we have today, to look into the brain to see the lesions caused from having MS. MS is known to affect certain people that lived in a colder climate before the age of 15. I am one of those that spent my frist days and years of my life in the Northern States where winter's were harsh.
Avatar n tn Anyone, of any age, can get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pneumonia</span>. It may take a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pneumonia</span> to go away completely, but there should be ongoing improvement, even if it is slow. If the pneumonia does not completely go away or the pneumonia comes back you may have some other lung problem or an immune problem. As long as you do not have a lung or an immune problem, then you should have no more trouble with pneumonia. Also you would not need to take any special precautions.
Avatar f tn I am hoping this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>do</span>es not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> much longer. My husband had the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> but much milder and is back to normal. Comment from: Rita, 55-64 Female (Patient) I got the flu shot on Monday, November 2. By Friday, I was getting really sick. Too sick to move and go to the hospital. By Monday, it was full-blown pneumonia (I had a pneumonia shot six months ago). The doctor gave me Advair, Z-Pak, and more. My lungs cleared some but my sinuses and throat are raw. I keep getting bouts of fever.
Avatar f tn more stomach issues than I'd had in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>last</span> couple months, more lightheaded feelings, couldn't go as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> without eating, etc. February has been horrible. Fatigue, nausea, feeling like my blood sugar is crashing even though it's normal, headaches, lightheaded, and more. For the past few days I've felt really weak in my arms and legs. Someone on the general health forum suggested lyme because I seem to have bad reactions to antibiotics.
Avatar f tn Of course as you already know... the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> of CFS are pretty much the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> as an autoimmune disease. I think that physicians, especially rheumatologists, are going to have to start coming around and redefining what an "autoimmune" disease really is. Some physicians and chiropractors (who have more schooling hours than physicians) believe fibro and CFS are autoimmune conditions.

5249831 tn?1407717326  What they found was a full blown case of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pneumonia</span>. No wonder I couldn't breathe. With so many sx from tx I just figured it was from anemia. Turns out my heart was compensating and now have  a temporary condition called Pericardial Effusion, which fluid between the heart and heart sac. They  have me on Rimapril. My blood pressure was 90/50 and now abt 106/62. I go for a mibi? test for angina tomorrow. Been here for 11 days and still on oxygen.
