32 months, back at the hospital...

Rate this Entry
Hello friends,

My complications from brachioplastie are not gone yet...gee, with all that drama I'm never going to be ready for a tumor removal/tummy tuck...I feel I'm done with surgeries, this time has been just too much.....

I saw many specialist, then spent my day yesterday at a really good Parisian hospital, saw a great prof in hematology and also a GYN, I had lots of exams.

It was nice to feel I was heard, the cardiologist last week was telling me : "drink more water and walk more" when I just explained how frustrated I was to be less mobile since I was so sick for the past weeks...the guy was obviously not listing...and not reading my blood test results...

Basically, all my symptoms could be coming from my crazy low iron...my last blood test did show my deficiency was worth than ever, no wonder my body is in shock, no oxygen is getting anywhere!

So we will try this week the iron infusion, in hospital in a special department with ICU in case I have allergies/bad reaction..they will monitor me half a day.
Hopefully iron will be well accepted by my body
Fingers crossed!!

I will keep you posted!

    Sandra, I'm glad you're finally getting some sensible, information-based advice / treatment. Sorry you're having such a hassle with all this!

    I haven't had any plastics, and I don't think I ever will!

    Thanks for your support my dear Ann!

    I'm always dragging my feet for any kind of surgery....here since my tumor removal could be made at the same time with "reconstruction" my insurance would cover and it made more sens to have someone qualified to do the job.

    Meaning, to remove my tumors on my arm, it would have required like ten incisions. Since I did qualify for a lift, it was no brainer to think the result would be better and with only one incision, longer but at least it could be hidden...

    One of my worth experience, I had one tumor removed on my back 13 years ago, a general surgeon did the job because it was urgent, it was growing and pressing on a nerve...the scar was bad...so bad people thought it was a wound from a gun shot...now it's faded but I was think that way with a qualified surgeon who did great with my other removals, it would be fine....hum....nope!!

    I have to go back in March for correction of the "dog ears" but this time it will be a local anesthesia and I'm hoping I will be done with the arm story!!
