Re: Not one thing but another

dancehearts dancehearts Please do not apologise for unloading Margaret, it makes me feel better. Today I have been contemplating all the other people out there who do have far worse issues than me, and it really has helped to pull me up and move on. The idea of the bypass of my digestive system in i...

Not one thing but another

I am talking to the converted and especially Helen, you will know where I am coming from As most of you know I had oesophageal cancer 6 years ago, did the big Operation and chemo and got the all clear. I STILL HAVE NO SIGN OF CANCER, BUT, what is remaining of my stomach has developed into a very lar...

Re: WARNING - GROSS REALITY

Thanks Ron, I eat all the stuff you said, but I think it is involved with my operation I had for the Oesophageal cancer. It was 6 years ago now. No matter what I eat, nothing seems to go down, and is up again in about half an hour. I see the surgeon on Tues, but I had a terrible night last night, so...

Re: WARNING - GROSS REALITY

I would go that pizza in an instant, but half an hour later it would be coming back up again and the bile involved in these procedures burns a great big hole in your throat.

Re: WARNING - GROSS REALITY

I am pretty sure I am in good hands, but if I don't hear by today what they have planned for me I will stop the pain meds, eat some food, and take myself to emergency and throw up over their floors and scream in pain. I think they will have to do something then. The problem is that the surgeon who I...

Re: WARNING - GROSS REALITY

Thank you so much Ladies, I just had to offload what is happening. Hopefully I see the surgeon early next week, he is only in town Monday, Tuesday so will know tomorrow. As long as I don't eat I am fine. :duh: I am having my first intake of food for the day and I am apprehensive. Mind you it is only...

Re: ICD Shocks while asleep

I have never had a shock whilst in bed asleep, but I have been snoozing on the couch because I felt off, and apparently I had a shock. My understanding of this is that when we go into VF we become unconscious, so I presume that we just slip from sleep into unconsciousness and whilst unconscious we d...

WARNING - GROSS REALITY

Have been observing my generator getting more pronounced since I have been loosing weight At the moment I can actually lift it off my body except for where the leads go in, there is a covering of skin, but nothing else there to support it. Must admit it creeps me out. So for anyone out there who wan...

Re: Doom and Gloom

It might not have set him off, but I was told years ago that it relates to the magnetic stuff in the motor. But I could be wrong. It may also relate to the fact that he was out working harder than normal and over did it. Leedur may be able to fill you in better than me.

Re: Doom and Gloom

I recently was in the same position as you. But, my cardiologist is more subtle than those nurses, he just says that there is nothing more he can do for me. I know I have deteriorated, and at the moment am going through some weird shit with my health, but hopefully will find out what is wrong tomorr...

Re: Beta Blockers - exactly how do they help prevent arrhythmia

The dilemma of our VT's and VF's coming out of the blue, for no apparent reason is something I also personally grapple with. I am also on beta blockers, but the explanation that Colin gave you is the best I have heard and makes complete sense to me. However, they do not always work. The joys of a da...

Re: OT: drug pricing alert

I won't make any statement of this scheme, you can decide for yourself. http://www.pbs.gov.au/info/about-the-pbs Another example of how you all can relate to how it works over here. I went onto Entresto last year. I was put on the phasing in trial. This meant that I was given the drug by the drug co...

Re: o/t The cat came back.

Hi Gorgeous lady, I think we are all entitled to have a few hissy fits every year. I know I do and feel better for having them. Talk about bloody cats, I have a stash of Catnip for my cat Olivia. I thought I had it in a safe place, but have noticed I have had a very laid back cat for the past few da...

Re: o/t BED

That is brilliant Helen, I am so glad you are doing this. I get like this over winter, but I do not use my cell phone. I really don't know what I am doing, and I only get a few calls and as for texts, I hardly ever use them. I use my laptop when resting or watching TV. I know about the use of these ...
