A few weeks ago I couldn't get online or any webpages. I finally fixed the computer and had to reload firefox, updates, reload some other programs and got it fixed. The problem now is my pictures are not accessible to put in an email when I hit insert on hotmail. The pictures are in Windows Photo Gallery. I tried to put some in an email from pictures and while it says I have 250 in there I open the folder and it's empty. So I haven't lost my pictures I just can't seem to get them into an email. I have downloaded more since having a problem with the computer and they do download in my pictures... Continue Reading


Re: Increase in skirt size linked to increase in BC risk

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 60. No one in my family had it. I was lucky and it was stage 1. I saw a lot of women in radiation that were thin. One was in her 70s and she looked frail. Another was close to 80, frail and in a wheelchair. There were a lot of us there. I know body fat produces estrogen but I still think the genes make a big difference. 5 years after being diagnosed my cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer and she was about 70 and very thin. This was on my father's side too which is now taken into consideration. My neighbor's mother in law was in her 90s and g... Continue Reading

I agree that you don't have to be on antibiotics at the time and can get it a few weeks later or months. I didn't get it until I was off antibiotics for 9 months the first time. I did have a lot of them in a year period due to surgery but was fine. When a person has had problems with the colon you know that blood is not normal. That was my first sign, no pain, nothing. This time no antibiotics except for 2 in April of 2013 so there was no reason I got it from what I was taking. Blood again and I was in the walk in clinic. For some reason I guess my pain tolerance is high. I was taking ... Continue Reading

KippyK3, you know I felt that I just had a problem with colitis and took the medication for that. But the pain didn't go away like it usually does. In both instances the really first sign was blood. I knew from Crohn's disease that when you see that something is wrong. Seemed like both times it happened on a weekend that's why I didn't wait and went into the walk in clinic which is opened from 8 to 8 every day. Years ago I was at work and had a slight stomach ache, went home and knew something was wrong. The next morning I was at my GP and was told to go to the hospital. End up with 3 f...

It seems today that some doctors don't feel you need the antibiotic with knee replacement. The nurse working for my specialist said her doctor doesn't recommend it and she had knee replacements. My knee surgeon does. I've seen what my mom went through so taking two antibiotics before a procedure is not a big thing for me. If I had to take 2 every week I would be worried. I am allergic to penicillin so really have no choice. If I got an infection in my knees then I would need a stronger antibiotic. So preventing is better than treating an infection. I don't know about a hip replacement... Continue Reading

Yes, my doctor gave them to me. With knee replacements I have to take an antibiotic before a dental appointment and anything that requires medical care like if I cut myself and had to go to the ER. I had to take 2 before my colonoscopy last year. If I didn't take them I could get an infection that would go to my knees. My mom had knee replacements and got an infection that went to her knees and she was in the hospital for awhile. Continue Reading

I've been taking the Vancomycin since Tuesday and I'm feeling a lot better. I feel a little tired but other than that I'm pretty good compared to the Flagyl. I'll never use that again ever. I find it strange that my insurance wouldn't pay for the IV to be mixed up for $200. at a compounding pharmacy. The capsules cost $1,200. my copay $5. Makes no sense to me. If my insurance would of paid for the liquid I would of saved them some money. I do have a question for those that have ended up in the hospital. Did you have any signs a few weeks before you went to the hospital. Like cramping or... Continue Reading

I was given this when I had two knee replacements. Then I got a urinary infection right after one of the surgeries. I was put on this a week after my surgery and I had no side effects. I have it here all the time just in case I need it. Continue Reading


Re: MRI of Breast ? ? help...worried

In Health & Fitness 1411702237.187

I am a breast cancer survivor also, 8 1/2 years. I had a diagnostic mammogram on one afternoon, next morning I had a biopsy and the next morning I found out I had cancer. I got my MRI after seeing the breast surgeon. It all happened so fast but it was better knowing than waiting. I found the lump myself and my mammogram that I had a few months earlier showed nothing. I had a woman radiologist do the ultrasound and the biopsy. After the ultrasound she suggested I go across the hall and make an appointment with a surgeon. I asked her outright if she thought I had cancer and she said yes. ... Continue Reading

Started my medication yesterday and due for another at 5 am. Can't get 8 hours of sleep so have to set the alarm. So far so good. I did ask the nurse at the doctor's office about my Florastor and she said to take it but not within an hour or two of the antibiotic. I did see on tv about the fecal transplant and it didn't look as gross as it sounds. They do something with the sample and then just put it in with a small tubing. I checked and there is a doctor in the city at the trauma center that does it. Said it should be a blood relative so my daughter would be a good donor if need be. ... Continue Reading
