I am 60 years old & have been on plavix 75, and an aspirin for 2 years since my mini strokes. I was previously on caduet 5/40 for about 8 years prior to the mini strokes. I have recently developed muscle weakness in my legs to the point of almost collapsing walking from the car, grocery shopping, etc. I do water aerobics twice a week, and zumba once a week. Is there anything more I can do to re-instate my muscle strength?
I have been diagnosed as hypothyroid. My symptoms are numerous and I will list them as they first appeared years ago: fatigue, facial hair growth - fine fuzz all over, muscle aches, armpit hair loss, dry skin, worsening fatigue, scalp hair loss and eyebrow hair loss, EXTREME scalp hair loss & breakage, EXAUSTION, rapid weight gain, depressed? Just no desire to do anything but not weepy. Synthroid .025 mg for about 4 mos and t3for a week have made little difference. Still gaining weight at alarming rate and eating about 600calories (healthy cals. Lean protein and thecright veggies- done my research) and hair loss is astounding! Should I be changing the thyroid med to a desicated thyroid? Is the amount way too low? I know that Doctors r often afraid of high doses of the thyroid hormone? What do I do next! I want my old body and active life back!!!! This one is hell:(. HELP!

My father, 81, (after a 4 bypass surgery back in the 80s) has undergone a stent/baloon procedure two days ago at NYU hospital. (Two arteries were disconnected/blocked.) He is home now. Has been prescribed: Aspirin, Plavix, & Pletal for 6 months. He is now complaining of chest pain. Is that normal after the procedure?
My 68 year old husband has a history of kidney stones. He had a lithotripsy 4 days ago for a kidney stone after having a stent placed for a week prior. The stone was intially lodged in the ureter but was too high to have a basket retrieval so it was pushed back into the kidney for the later lithotripsy. He was taken off Plavix and ASA he takes for 2 prior heart attacks. He was taking Hydrocodone every 4 hours for pain. He also has a hx of prostate cancer successfully treated by proton therapy. The stent was removed yesterday. He developed low abdominal discomfort, lethargy, loss of appetite and a low grade temp. He is voiding without difficulty. IVP was done today along with a urinalysis, CBC and chem profile but all is normal. Waiting on urine culture results. IM Rosefin and PO Ceclor was started today. He continues with the low grade temp, now no higher than 100.8 but has no appetite (is drinkining) and falls asleep at the drop of a hat. He is currently taking Acetaminaphen for the temp above 100, Ceclor 3x/day and Protonix. MD does not think problem could be a fungal infection. Just waiting now for urine culture results but my husband is miserable in the meantime. Any thoughts?
