Question: Hi Doctor,

My mother is 55 years old. She had her menopause 13 years ago.

She had a angioplasty in February 2014 and is on ecosprin and other medicines for her heart condition.

She also takes Tagretol everyday for a seizure disorder.

After the angioplasty she has started noticing periods. Blood in her vaginal area everyday.

We showed it to a consulting Gynecologist in XXXXXXX and acoording to the doctor her uterine lining has thickened and needs to be cleaned because of hormonal imbalance in the body.
What I am trying to understand here is what are my options in helping my mother.

Is hysterectomy an option and if yes would her medicines for heart condition be a problem in operating?

Are there any minimum invasive surgeries possible?

Who would be a good doctor in XXXXXXX to show her regarding this condition.

Brief Answer:
DNC is the first next step she has

Detailed Answer:

It is important to diagnose the problem for post menopausal bleed in any women. For that she needs to undergo Dilatation and curretage procedure. If the pathologist confirms any malignant changes then she can undergo hysterectomy.

Yes minimal invasive hysterectomy is possible in XXXXXXX THere are good number of doctors doing this technique. After getting a clear certificate from Cardiologist any operating surgeon would do this.

Hope this answers.

Dear Sir/Madam, My father age is 62yrs.He had seizures attack in July,2009 then again in July,2010 then again in Nov,2010 then at last on 1st May 2011. Earlier we didn t had any idea of these attacks and what are they called.When consulted the doctors,they said to take CT scan,MRI the results showed normal and at last they said to take EEG,in which it showed some abnormality. Then the doctor had asked to take the medicines. On 1st May,2011 he had twice attacks and we had admitted him in hospital.That time we came to know that the attacks he had are known as seizure disorder(GTCS). The process done by my father during attacks. He is in deep sleep,suddenly he shouts aaahhhh ,stretches his hands,then goes in deepest sleep(unconscious mind) and one more thing his tongue gets in between the teeth(blood comes as tongue gets hurt). Then we try to make him wake up as he goes in deepest sleep in unconscious mind,try to rub on his heart.It hardly takes 20-25 min to bring him conscious.Once he gets alert we get relaxed. Now he is taking Eptoin Tab.The doctor has said to take it for 3 yrs. I would like to know what precautions should be taken before and after the attack.Are there any symptoms before the attack. Will he get the attack again??Please help me. Regards, Sheetal.

I went to see a neuro physician and he said I have a seizure disorder because I have periods of wetting the bed while I am sleeping. My testing showed a small abnormality but they cannot be sure it is a seizure disorder. They are baseing their diagonsis on the bed wetting. I have starting to ween myself my afternoon dose of medication. I have anappointment in a few weeks with my physician and will be asking him to take me off all the medication. What is your feed back?

On my discharge papers it says seizure disorder (CMS-hcc) what does that mean?

doctor1 MD

About a week and a half ago my husband ,who is 62 with high blood pressure, high cholestral, seizure disorder and borderline diabetic, overweight 20 lbs, had incident in which he felt pressure in the middle of his chest and could not take a deep breath. I suggested we go right to the Dr. but he refused. After about and hour he felt better and went about his day. In the late afternoon of this same day it happened again he rested and felt better afterwards. I feel he had some kind of heart attack but he says ,"no, if I had an attack I would know or I'd be dead".
The next day he was talking and he couldn't get this word out all of a sudden like he was slurring and then as fast as it happened it stopped and he was able to speak fine. How do I know if these are serious symptoms or not? Debbie

I have Hashimoto Encephalopathy of the brain and I am on 120 mg of prednisone each Sunday (which is push therapy.) but the nuerologist is thinking of redusing the prednisone and adding azathriprone . I was just wondering with the AZA drug would you be able to tan. I love the sun and live in Arkansas and was just wondering. I also have a colostomy bag (4 years now) permanent and also MS and also take phenebarbitol for a seizure disorder but have not had one in over 20 years. The nuero I have had heard on HE but had never met anyone that had it until he met me so does not know a lot about it so we are doing trial and error and we have a facebook page and he has me print things off when I see him every three months. I know that the prednisone is not good for me so was just thinking of something else to tell him. It will be 2 years this Sept since I have been on prednisone every week.
