... I have poorly controlled hypertension and well controlled type-2 diabetes. I've had trans-sphenoidal surgery twice (2007, 2009 aborted), radiotherapy (2009), and surgery to repair a CSF leak (2009) after the tumour shrunk. I also have a history of psychosis and poor vision. My endocrinologist wants to start me on a low dose of bromocriptine and the psychiatrist has given her approval. Should I agree with them and start the treatment? Most likely the psychosis will reoccur and I'll have to stop the treatment and I've read that could cause rapid regrowth of the tumour. I'll appreciate any advice.
It's very difficult to give advise about this ... your doctor and psychiatrist know all about your conditions and they will only prescribe what is best for your. If you have any concerns about the medication/treatment then please question them ... they know the protocols of treatment and will be able to give you the right answers.
I had just about finished this note when I hit a botton
and deleted the whole thing. So once again I'll try to get this done,
I really can't give you any medical advice. You apparently have many issues
that hurt, and puts a terrible strain on you. I'm so sorry and, I will pray for you.
I to have many medical problems myself and if it wasn't for God, I may have killed my self.
I can't even hardly pronounce your illness, but I'm sure you felt the same way.
I first became ill in 2004. I got a blood clot in a vain in my head. I had such headaches
I thought I was going to die. oh, it hurt and nothing would stop it. Morphine is the only pain reliever that would stop the hurt. The blood clot had calcified in the vain. For that I thank God, or it might have killed me. Then shortly after I was out of the hospital, I got another DVT in my arm. I was rushed to the hospital
where they worked to thin my blood, and to dissolve the clot. That's the second time Christ had spared my life. We don't understand why he saves some. I believe we have a perpose on earth. I was also born with only one kidney, witch is kind of odd. It has worked well for 62 years now. I had my appendix
out in my early twenties. Strange thing was part of it had folded over and gangrene
had set in. They had to scrap my insides out and load me up with antibiotics. I had survived this also.
God has certainly been good to me, then and up through 2004. I know that as a Christian, God has used me in ways, that even I don't know and I like the feeling. Even though my health is not the greatest.
I'm doing the Lords work. Oh and another thing, I have had 4 upper bowl blockages. 3 they gotit working
again, by putting a tube up my nose, and down into my stomach. That is a horrible thing to have done.
They pump everything back out, in reverse, yuk. The second of the 4 wouldn't restart, and I had to have surgey. That one I came the closes to dieing. I went three weeks with only dabs of water on my tongue
Oh, I wanted to die and just be done. I was in hospital a month, when I dressed to leave, my pants just fell to the floor. Like I said I was close to dieing again. When I couldn't walk, the Lord carried me.
Praise God for his son. If you know a CHRISTIAN Or a GOOD Minster, I ask you to talk to them.
There is no promise of curing, but Christ will walk the road with you and you'll be garenteed a place in heaven and a life free of pain and sorrow.
God Bless you Hon, I wish I could cure you, but I can't fix anything.
I will pray, remembering you every night.
Lov from a old man, who Christ has kep around, even though I should be dead
