    New Primary Care Doctor

    Other Care

    He took a chest x-ray and showed me I have an enlarged heart. The murmur is audible. Did I mention I have a bundle branch block in the left side? He listened to my breathing and heard the wheezing. I have my very first inhaler. He said it is allergy caused. My HBA1C is 9.8. Megestrol and Medroxyprogestrone both cause this. Something tells me they won't do surgery but instead treat me with chemo and radiation. I may be a really high risk for surgery. I don't trust my body. I am afraid of my own body how it will betray me. From the direction I've gone with my faith I can only say all is as it is supposed to be.

    Short, short haircut

    Decision Point

    When what little hair I will have remaining falls off in clumps I'll just use the vacuum cleaner. I can wear the wig over my ultra short designer haircut. Haircut happens today.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I not very many side effects, people made more of an impact to my daily life by where they assigned me than did the surgery. I need to see if this shows. I am still having problems with the site here. It went as expected, minimal recovery, site still not working.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Bladder problems

    Side Effects

    I have to talk about this. I don't mean to accuse or hurt anyone. I never had trouble from a catheter being inserted in my bladder before now. I have had catheters before my recent surgery. When we sign the papers allowing surgery we sign a release. Injury can occur during surgery. We have to hold our doctors and surgical team members harmless.for our accidental injuries and thank them for rescuing us from cancer, Sadly I am in physical and emotional agony with bladder pain and spasticity. I fear someone accidentally injured me with a catheter.
