Hip Replacement anyone???

Started this discussion. Last reply by Sara Pietrzak Sep 3, 2010. 2 Replies

Went to the doctor for what I thought was a strained muscle, and was told I may have arterial necrosis. I'm scheduled for an mri. My primary doc was rather tight lipped about what it was and all I…Continue

About Me: Please use this space to tell the community about you and your unique experience with transplantation:
I had a double lung txp. as a last resort to treat pph. Looking back, I think I always knew I was heading in that direction. I have been so blessed because I had a quick diagnosis, doctors who sent me to the best hospital in the world and a family that put aside terrible grief and gave the gift of life. I've been in pretty good health since.

"Use salt water rinses to help heal the sores in your moth. Try using artificial saliva to moisten the tissue in your mouth. Biotene products are made for dry mouth as well.  Good Luck"

Painful mouth tissues - not just thrush this time

  Hello All! I am Suzanne and am medically "well" since the liver transplant in February 2010. I so can relate to the majority of everyone's issues post transplant and most likely medication related side effects. Lately my biggest problem has been my sore mouth tissue - as my dentist call it "dry tissue". This is the absolute worst it has ever been! I have the liquid Nystatin for the thrush but it seems to not be helping at all. Started using coconut oil (since the pulled all my teeth pre-transplant I don't think I can legitimately call it "pulling"). It helps to coat the tissues for awhile, but it is limited.  Today I picked up some raw honey from the local Farmers' Market and will be trying it out shortly. Anyone else relate to this problem?  I know I don't visit this site often, haven't been here since last year. I seem to show up in desperation to tell the truth because no one else gets us, you know what I mean? My husband is comforting as he can be, but it's not what I am looking…See More

Does 'Race' Matter For Organ Donation- Should This Be A Factor?

According to How Stuff Works, minorities are extremely encouraged to register to become an organ donor. Meaning, organs are matched by factors, including blood and tissue typing, which can vary by race. However, patients are more likely to find matches among donors of their same race or ethnicity.See More
