29837 tn?1414534648 I saw the primary a week ago regarding this problem. His take, as well as mine, is the result of stopping the dreadful pain medication Oxycodone abruptly, which was prescribed for me after my spinal surgery. As my ideal weight is 185, I now am 173. However, that's one pound more than a week ago. What this means, is that I'm not losing anymore weight, but have gained one pound. This tell me it's a gradual recovery from the withdrawal I'm going through. I know losing 15 lbs.
Avatar n tn Hello, About 2 years ago, I had double jaw surgery for an open bite that doctors claimed I needed to get fixed. I wore braces for a good 6 years. I received the surgery and while the operation did change my looks, I still prefer the older look. there were several concerns that I had with the whole process 1. surgery was claimed to be the only option.
Avatar f tn I just had my ovary and tube removed about 12 days ago laparascopically. A couple of silly questions since I don't know who else to ask: did you end up with a huge purple and blue bruise on your abdomen after the surgery (about the size of a 3 x 5 card)? and how long did it take your bowels to get back to working order (like pre-surgery)? I'm trying to decide if my potty problems are from the surgery and will resolve soon or from the new heart medication I'm taking.
Avatar m tn I had a partial nephrectomy and rib removed 12 days ago for renal cell carcinoma. Surgery was successful and I have been recovering very rapidly; I am in good shape, thin and exercise regularly so my recovery has gone quite smoothly, except for the fact that I constantly feel full and have to make myself eat. it seems like this has gotten worse the past few days; even if not, it surely has not gotten better. I am losing weight in spite of eating because I have to eat such small portions.
Avatar f tn So my Mother Had a hysterectomy about 8-9 months ago, surgery went great, though she had a rough time recovering. It turns out that She had an adrenal gland in her left kidney that gave her big headaches, to the point where morphine was given to her in the emerge. She ended up having the surgery and it went well. This was done two moths after the hysterectomy. Anyways, so after that she started developing depression causing to always feel like she couldn't breathe, lost in appetite.

Avatar m tn I have amblyopia and the doctor advised me to patch my good eye for 6 hrs. a day. While patching, I experience some headaches and dizziness. And after removing my patch, I also experience double vision. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn When I expressed concern to the nurse that I was still in pain, she said it takes about 18 months for the fusion to be complete and while the pressure has been removed from the nerves, they are basically regenerating or re-energizing so you pain may actually get worse before it gets better. that explanation really helps understand it. Here I am 3 months out and I still have pain, much less than before but not pain free yet. I saw my surgeon yesterday and just got released to go to therapy.
Avatar f tn It's not good to purposely lose weight while pregnant. It keeps the baby from getting the nutrients it needs. If you eat right and healthy and go for walks it'll keep you from gaining so much weight. In some cases women do lose some weight but no more than couple lbs. You might wanna find a new doc if he was concerned about you AND baby He would of put you on a special diet. But he shouldn't be telling you to purposely lose weight.
Avatar n tn I'm 20 years old an 5' 8.... and recovering from anorexia. But the healing process has been challenging. It seems that now that I'm at the point where I want to eat food... I can't. I get severe stomach pains when eating. Is there a supplement that I should be taking or any other advice. Also I was wondering what my actual body weight should be for my height and age... to see how far I have to be at a healthy weight as right now I am very underweight. thanks.
Avatar f tn I had a HIDA scan done about a month ago, after having severe symptoms the past 5 months. These symptoms include: Severe back pain, pain under right ribs that sometimes radiates outward, feeling of fullness when eating, burping often when eating, nausea, chills, fatigue. (These symptoms were accompanied by GERD, which my DR put me on Nexium for.) The HIDA scan showed an Ejection Fraction rate of 1.4% which my doctor said was EXTREMELY low.
Avatar f tn u really shouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
Avatar f tn I really think recovering from this type of surgery is not the same for all women, and varies greatly both for length of time, the problems you actually end up dealing with/not dealing with, and the quality of the surgeon's job. Additionally, it helps to exercise the arm(s) early in the process. A PT (Physical Therapist) helped me a lot. (most) I never had any real problems with fluid accommodation but this is common and unpleasant, from what I have heard.
Avatar m tn 5 to 6 kilos of the weight loss happened while I was in the hospital as I could not eat for a few days after surgery then I had a poor appetite for a few weeks after that. Now, I am losing my weight by both diet and exercise. I keep my calories around 1800 to 2000 a day and I exercise at least three times a week at a gym plus I do some walking given time and weather. My goal is to be at 90 kilos by September 1 adn 80 kilos by March 19, 2010.
Avatar f tn I have recently started recovering from bulina and my weight has shot up 6lbs in a week. will this weight drop off once my eating is back to normal and the purging stops? please help. . . .!!
941354 tn?1250551418 It's almost what 10 weeks post surgery. Recovering from the surgery has been the easy part. Getting out of this funk, this lack of energy, yes they are still playing with my synthroid levels as I am still major HYPO. I have such fatigue I can barely function. Joint and muscle pain that I didn't expect. I feel like **** to be truthful.
