The path to normalcy...

Posted 05-21-2015 at 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

Posted 05-08-2015 at 12:52 PM by Brenm

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 at 11:20 PM by W0438548

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...

Story of my Wound - Accomplishment - Knitting

Posted 12-11-2014 at 04:00 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

What an odd title, what does it mean? For me knitting gives me pleasure, a sense of worth, a goal, and then accomplishment.

I have been knitting for almost 40 years and in that time I have had my own business, designed endless Christmas stockings, knit for others, and then finally for me.

I quickly learned from my PD waiting room that so many people are defined by their pain or condition. I decided that wasn't for me. I had to have something that would give me a sense...

Story of my Non - Healing Wound The Fight Part 3

Posted 12-05-2014 at 07:59 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

All looked well and was well until the APRN fell and severely fractured her wrist. She needed surgery and would be out for 8 weeks. What was I to do? It was no use being angry. There were decisions to be made.
I had 3 choices.
Stay where I was with modifications
Go to a hospital near by but there reputation was poor.
Go to a big city, a hour drive at least. They had a different Hyperbaric Chamber. Room size, it could accommodate several people. I would only have to go...
