Tonsillectomy surgery

Hey everyone-
Today, June 14, I finally had them take my tonsils out after getting strep 6 times last year. I went to the ENT who agreed the only way to stop this is taking them out. So, here's my story about how my experience was before and after the surgery! I got there early in the morning around 6:45, and they had me do routine paperwork and waited until they called me back to take my vitals. They make you pee before hand, which is difficult since you have to stop drinking after midnight....

Just over it already...

I was admitted to the hospital back in May for pneumonia for a week. Got out with anti biotics, steroids, and oxygen. My lung dr put me back on a 6 week prednisone taper starting at 30mg. I'm at 10mg and I'm getting shortness of breath again. to the point where I need my oxygen which I haven't had to use lately. I have major anxiety so that doesn't help at all. I also suffer from Interstitial Ling Disease and wonder if that's playing a factor. I'm just in a funk... my health probs just keep adding...

The path to normalcy...

Posted 05-21-2015 09:01 AM by Rdbomb94

Hi-
I've been out of the hospital for a week now. I was in there a week for pneumonia. I've been released with oxygen. I'm concerned because my breathing is still so bad after walking around. The hospital stay itself wasn't bad. trying to get my pain meds was a nightmare. I also went back to work dragging my oxygen tank behind me. It's good to be home tho.

LVA Treatment for Lymphedema

I recently underwent surgical treatment for primary lymphedema in my right leg. The procedure, called LVA (Lymphaticovenous Anastomosis) was performed on April 21, 2015 and I’m already seeing a significant improvement in my swelling!

LVA graphs the lymph lines to a vein to allow the lymph fluid to drain via the vascular system.

I'm 30 years old, I was diagnosed with primary lymphedema 11 years ago in my right leg. It was manageable for about 8 years with little change...

Admissions of a Hypochondriac

Posted 04-24-2015 11:20 PM by W0438548

I'm Hannah. I'm admittedly a hypochondriac. I suffer from severe anxiety. I am here to talk about my problems with other people experiencing hypochondria. My hypochondria began when my mother started battling heart disease. I am only 24 years old. The only family I have is my mother and my sister who is disabled. I constantly think I have cancer. Ive thought I've had breast cancer, leukemia, brain cancer, melanoma, and am admittedly currently worrying I have throat cancer. My neck below my jaw has...
