About Me: Female, 71, Roseburg, OR, member since Feb 2010
I really enjoy my relationship with God and my church family. I have 2 daughters, one a surgical nurse, now supervisor..the oldest lost her daughter in a tragic accident 3+ yrs. ago...I live alone with my big Hymalian (sp) cat Sally.
[More] I used to house/pet sit, until I became ill several months ago...and just could not do much of anything, lots of anxiety, sleeplessness, fear, depression, etc...less than 2 mo. ago, I found the goiter...I'd been complaining to the Dr. about it for over 2 yrs. that I felt a chocking sensation in my throat when he would squeeze my shoulders..he just said it was tight muscles ad I had been rear ended, and had quite a whiplash. Every time I would go in I would loose 1-2 lbs a week, and he would ask, what is with this weight loss? I said, I'm sure not doing it on purpose...and he would comment about my heart rate being a little high, you think when it was 120 and my BP being a bit high...DUH! Thankfully I have a name for what is wrong with me...I honestly though I was going to die, that is how bad I felt.Now I am on the roller coaster ride of Levothryoxin..I am basically home bound...go out when I have to.
I've been in politics, managed a third level air carrier, both very interesting...I hope to get back to myself again...soon! Many encourage me to be patient, and I appreciate that...I see a new physician on Monday..and I am elated...His office already called today and asked me to come 1/2 hr. early as they will do an EKG...I was elated...I've written way too much so will stop now....thank all of you, for being here, and encouraging all of us...
Just a quick note to say hi! hi,can you please help me and say a prayer as well,i swallowed a piece of bone and was having trouble swallowing,they gave me an upper endoscopy and found a slight scratch. 2 days later i had burn in my stomach then cramping in my abdomen, it has been 6 weeks and i now have mucus in my stool and my fecal fat was high,do u think the procedure gave me h pylori or a bacteria or did the doctor damage something,please help me.i love god and maybe if you pray he will give u a message that will help me,thank u god bless i got tested for h pylori came back neg. i feel it was too soon for antibodies to show,how long before they show?
