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...

Posted 07-09-2015 10:31 AM by Rdbomb94

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...

Anxiety Update...

Posted 05-21-2015 09:20 AM by Rdbomb94

Yet again I have a new psych doctor. He has diagnosed me with General Anxiety that cause depression which causes more anxiety and adhd. So I'm trying a whole new cocktail with him. He wanted to start from scratch. I am taking 40mg of Prozac. I was on 60mg of Cymbalta but it was making me gain weight. Apparently that's a side effect for some people they don't like to tell you about. 5mg of Buspar 2x a day (anymore and it cause stomach issues and upset) and 15mg of Dexedrine 2x a day. 1 mg Klonopin...

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.
