I have lived in WI most of my life. Was extremely active until I had my last knee replacement in 2007. My neighbor thought my apt. was vacant - she never saw me - I left at 5:30am and returned home about 8:00pm.
Upon having my knee replacement - I ended up with blood clots in the lungs and gained a host of other medical conditions with it. Ultimately I had to quit working and had to close my business. I am now totally disabled.
Lupus anticoagulant w/antiphospholipid syndrome, Raynaud's phenomenon, Kidney dysfunction (stone maker), type 2 diabetes (in remission), PFO (hole in my heart), PE (pulmonary emboli), TIA's (mini strokes), PH (Pulmonary Hypertension), Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, I have spinal and cervical stenosis, 2 total right knee replacements, esophageal dysmotility, LVDD, sleep disorder w/ brain arousal's and periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD), and Fibromyalgia.
I also have an autonomic dysfunction and RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Disorder). Due to my Autonomic dysfunction I have had to have 4ft of my colon removed May 2010. I am a 16 yr breast cancer survivor. Now you know a little more about me.
I have recently under gone a 7 vertebrea cervical fusion - C3-T1 - which includes 2 rods and 10 screws.
