Suggest remedy for respiratory infection and bradycardia with history of successful surgery for acromegaly

I am 44 years old. 2 years ago i had transanal ablation of a pituitary adenoma that caused me acromegally. Surgery was successful and i have been living in assisted living. Recently i developed upper respiratory infection and marked bradycardia. Perhaps this is a consultation for a treatment that i should receive

Hi,

In my opinion, you should definitely get done chest x-ray to rule out lung infection (pneumonia) because bradycardia is not seen in simple upper respiratory tract infection (URTI).

Bradycardia is seen with lung infection. So get done chest x-ray. If chest x-ray is normal then no need to worry much. Do warm water gargles and steam inhalation 4-5 times a day. Drink plenty of fluids orally. Take levocetirizine and paracetamol combination. Avoid hard to chew food.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Kaushal Bhavsar,

i was just getting over an upper respiratory infection and i developed a really bad dry cough. i cough so hard that at times i either, gag and almost throw up, i become dizzy and almost pass out , and during both types of coughs my rib cage (especially my right side under my breast) has excruciating pain to the point that i can barely move, it is very sore to the touch and breathing, yawning, coughing, sneezing, anything to do with air going into my body and any movements that require twisting are very painful to me. Could i have fractured or broken a rib with my severe cough? it feels as if my rib popped out of the socket.

I just rcvd a shot of 200mg of testosterone cypionate for low T levels. I am 40 years old and 285 pounds. After receiving the shot in the morning yesterday, I went to the gym and worked out pretty hard--squats and leglifts. Then today I hit the gym and lifted chest and triceps. The last 2-3 times ive urinated it was slightly painful, and i passed a few drops of what appeared to be blood. Actually this last time, i passed a very small glob of tissue (looked like a small clot of blood). I am worried, is this from the shot or the exercising???
