Avatar n tn I understand there are two such doctors in Canada, one in Toronto and one in Vancouver. I do not know how they actually go about removing the leads. Do they have to perform open heart surgery, or are they able to do it through a cath procedure. You help in helping me understand this procedure would be greatly appreciated.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had the mirena in for about 13 months & had it removed end of august to try to get pregnant. I had thought it was more immediate. I found out it can take 3-6 months for your cycle to return. my husband and I are pretty bummed because we would have removed it earlier (or never had it put in). Anyway, I bled a few days after removal (probably due to the removal) & then nothing until a couple days of brown spotting at the beginning of this month.
Avatar f tn When it was determined that the eye was about to tear again, I had the complete surgery, including cryosurgery, laser, removal of all the vitreous fluid, and another gas bubble. 24 hrs. after the surgery I developed cranial neuropathy of all the nerves affected by the local anesthetic. My surgeon told me that doesn't happen. Apparently, he's misinformed. It happened to me. At first he offered only Tylenol 3, which didn't even touch the pain. Then ketoloric which didn't help either.
Avatar f tn ) I see that Vancouver is near Washington but you said Vancouver Washington is that a city in Washington or do you mean that you are close to both?

Avatar n tn Perhaps you could still benefit from laser angioplasty. I investigated the Prima FX Laser Wire, which is approved in Europe and Canada, but not here in the U.S. Dr. David Hilton, in Vancouver, BC seems to be very skilled at using this and is having very good success with it. If it does come to that, I will go for the laser angioplasty before bypass. Hopefully, I will be able to stay away from cardiologists and cardiac surgeons altogether.
Avatar n tn There is a clinic in Vancouver, BC, Canada doing laser removal of pearly penile papules. www.mcmedgroup.com/PPP.html Check it out!
Avatar m tn Apparently the astigmatism I had has been corrected (toric lens) but I am now slightly shortsighted (I had hoped for good vision overall). It has been suggested I could have laser surgery to correct this. My main worry is that I have what I feel is quite bad flaring from car headlights at night and also lots of circles around the lights, presume this is haloing. I see you talk about haloing and I am wondering if this has diminished/improved for you as time passes after the surgery.
Avatar n tn And in my case, my Blue Cross paid for everything!) Since you're highly myopic, you would either need laser vision correction or a clear lens exchange on your other eye. (My Blue Cross paid for that eye, too!) But please don't even consider multifocal/accommodating IOLs. They're just not designed for eyes with a less-then-perfect retina. If you do have the retinal surgery, get aspheric monofocal IOLs made of acrylic for best results post cataract surgery.
Avatar n tn I had one laser treatment but it was a freebie and did nothing (SmartXide Dot laser) I've done all this for well over a year and NOTHING has improved. I look like a 40-year-old with an 80-year-old's arms. I live in Canada, so have more opportunity to cover my arms than someone living in Florida and cover them I do. I am embarrassed by them. I feel shocked when I look in the mirror. So ladies, I empathize fully. If I find a solution, I will post for you all.
Avatar m tn About all you have control of at this point is to do your research on the surgeons you are considering for the Macular Pucker-membrane removal/Vitrectomy surgery. I went to 4 Retina Specialists before I decided who I wanted to perform my surgery. I asked a lot of questions and did a great deal of reading these forums, etc. ahead. I won't repeat my long story, but 2 years post retina surgery I can see well enough to live out my life happily ...
Avatar n tn After an examination, she referred me to a Women's hospital here in Vancouver to see if I was a candidate for cryo-surgery. After an exam with a camera the doctor determined that it was not my uterus bleeding, but my cervix was VERY sensitive and would bleed to the touch, and like many of you here during bowel movements, sex, even sitting too long.
Avatar f tn The surgery itself was removal of the skin and fat. The procedure was not painful and it was done with local Anesthesia. The beauty of this procedure is that the dr can also remove any excess skin from the vaginal lips. I am extremely happy with the results. I feel all your pain. Just know that we don't have to live like this. Praise God for cosmetic surgeries!
Avatar n tn I was very thankful for the finding and removal of the turmor But! I had another ct last week, my brain seems to be ok, I can't get him to tell me a thing about the chiari, I told him I the reason I came to him in the beginning was the pain I have all over my body, now the dizziness, it moves around and sometimes it is so bad I can't stand it.
