Update on my Eyes and things :)

Posted on April 9, 2011 at 5:15pm 0 Comments

So I've been going to an ophthalmologist, she did all these blood tests on me and TB tests.  She got one test back for cat scratch fever she said that it wasn't negative nor positive, so i could've had it in the past.  She ordered more blood tests to make sure and in the mean time, gave me the antibiotic doxycycline to take for a month!   I go back in a few days, so hopefully she will…

October and November I was in texas staying with my boyfriend, we hadn't seen each other in 8 months!  We went a lot of places, I got to go to work with him, and I got to help with all the vinyl stuff.  We went to a few museums, I met almost all of his family, and we spent Thanksgiving together :D …

Ortho Evra

Ok so I tried to get Femcon Fe, but my insurance didn't cover it. Have any of you ladies used the Ortho Evra Patch?? I've seen a lot of reviews on the net some ppl say it's great some ppl say it's horrible. I guess it depends on the person.

Saw the doctor yesterday.....

Ok so yesterday I went and had my 12th heart biopsy and I'm waiting right now for them to call me with the results because I'm supposed to meet my b/f halfway so I can go stay with him in Texas for two weeks :D I am pretty much dying to see him right now because I haven't seen him since my transplant and that was nearly 8 months ago. Anywho, the nurses told me yesterday that I can take birth control :D yay!! I'm only on prograf, and prednisone now for my transplant, which is amazing,… Continue

Thank you for responding to my questions about blue cheese. I didn't even think about pasteurization. I checked and sure enough, my husband had bought unpasteurized at Trader Joe's. So, that means no blue cheese for me tonight. Raw milk, I wouldn't eat any form of. Thanks again!

Sarah,
Hope all goes well with the results from your biopsy yesterday and this finds you packing for your 2 weeks in Texas. I've got my fingers crossed for you.... that would be the best medicine for you!

Vomiting and Diarrhoea after being exposed to chemicals

Hello AllJust under three years I had a liver transplant due to cirrohossis and Hep C.  I am back at work but seem to experience vomiting and diarrhoea if I have been exposed to chemicals of any sort.  Understanding fertilser and blood and bone for gardens is a no no for me. My medical team cannot give me any answers and I am wondering if anybody has experienced the same symptoms.  The episodes seem to last up to four to five hours at a time and leaves me very fatigued and wash out.  Hoping someone can give me some answers.Kind regardsFrankSee More

Working after Transplant

Hello to everyone,My name is Gene and I was transplanted almost 3 years ago. I suffered from liver failure as a result of Hep C. I am 59 years old now. I suffered a torn rotator cuff as a result of my positioning during my transplant and it took some time to recover from that. I did not have any surgery I simply learned to live with it. I also incurred steroid induced diabetes as a result of the transplant and now have a fair amount of neuropathy in my feet. I have found that I fatigue much easier than I once did. My doctor has concluded that I have also suffered some cognitive impairment and as a result of my illness and I have been declared fully disabled. After a year of rehabilitation I returned to work part time delivering auto parts. I have been working for 18 months now. By federal law I can earn $1070/month and continue to receive disability. I find it difficult to live on my part time wages however I have determined that in order to justify going to work full time I would…See More
