About Me: Female, 65, Allenhurst, NJ, member since Apr 2006
I will be 58 years old this April. About 4 years ago I was dx with complex endometrial hyperplasia, now seems cured after being on provera. I am updating my profile as I had my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed and am very grateful that I do not have ovca. My pathol
[More]ogy report stated that my ovaries had serous cystedenoma's as well as Brenner tumors, plus paratubal cysts so all removed with benign dx. I was lucky as in time the dx might well have changed to malignant, so unless my uterus hyperplasia comes back to haunt me, I am over this chapter of worry. If I can be of any support to any of you please feel free to send me an email. I wish you all good news as well. Toni
Just a quick note to say hi! So, your husband has daily drainage and his doctor said that it wouldn't help?? I know that my internist and my allergist have never mentioned the procedure to me. I will be talking to my internist in June and get her opinion, and also a second opinion. I have a friend whose kids got it done, so I can also talk to them. My friend mentioned the procedure to me also, saying that I am doing all I can medically, now what about trying something anatomically to help.
I'll post when I decide what to do. I had such hope for this procedure--all as a way of not needing the prednisone so much.
Just a quick note to say hi! TJoyce, Hi, I just typed up another comment about the turbinate procedure. But I am thinking that maybe this will help because if the turbinate tissue and surface area is reduced then so will the constant production of mucus. Less turbinate tissue equals less ability to produce drainage. I am undecided right now, but it makes sense, doesn't it?? I am so hoping for a life free of constant coughing up stuff and blowing my nose. Plus, when it gets so bad, my asthma gets induced then I have to get on Prednisone, which in turn, makes my blood glucose get high and my BP goes up. So far, Prednisone has not cause bone thinning. I am hoping for a life with minimal to NONE of the Prednisone use.
Just a quick note to say hi!
I live in Flemington - my nearest full cardio hospital is Doylestown PA. The nearest NJ hospital is Morristown, in your area. I don't know what facilities Riverview in Red Bank offers. I have had surgery at Doylestown in 2007. If I lived in Monmouth I would most likely have used Morristown. I mention only to calibrate the key differences in our two locations in NJ.
