I m looking for something that will get him up and out of his chair. All he s done for the last three months is sit in his recliner. He s not doing his exercises the doctor recommended, he still gets winded just going to the restroom, and Father s Day is coming up. My brothers and I want to get him something, but nothing like a video series that will keep him in his chair. Know what I mean? I was thinking about a Wii with the Wii Fit, but when we visited and brought our Wii, he was disinterested. He has always enjoyed being outside doing stuff. He built a beautiful fire pit, a deck addition, and even (unseccessfully) tried his hand at building a greenhouse, all in recent years. He enjoys golfing and fishing, too, but he hasn t been since his surgery. Ideas appreciated. Many blessings!
My uncle is schizophrenic and is having a paranoid episode at present. This evening I witnessed him walkin the streets turning around in circles and kicking Walls? My mother has been his sole career all for the past 20 years but she is no longer able emotionally for the stress. My question is how obscene is the behaviour of a person wth schizophrenia that warrants intervention or hospitalisation? He is a very gentle man and is nit a threat to himself or anyone else. He justbhadvhis injection 10 days ago having missed it for the previous two months! I don t no what to do! I m living in Ireland
Ive had a personal experience where I almost gave up on my mom s chances of survival. But thanks to the never say die efforts of the Doctors of Apollo Kolkata, she came back home. She was diagnosed with simple Malaria that actually got so severe and complicated that it hit her vital organs like liver kidneys etc. which almost stopped functioning. But thanks to timely intervention of this Doctor who immediately admitted her into Apollo and then started the almost precision like methodical treatment from the staff of Apollo regular clockwork blood tests and so many more that at times I would get irritated about there repeated disturbances all to no avail they just kept on their drill she was even shifted to the ICU when things were not improving that s when I really gave up ! The very site of all those wires and sensors and that tube on her nose and one tube forever in her wrist and her constant mumbling in her state of semi conciousness is enough to shake the confidence of the strong hearted on me I was devastated. But the doctors and the staff never gave up. Finally their confidence and hard work payed off. All this did burn a big hole in my pocket but no price is too high to pay for one you treasure more than your life. If health care is what you want then this is the right place you can come to. assured of excellent facilities clean hygenic food vigilant security no anxious relatives crowding around a lot of breathing space all the necessary facilities a working pay phone in every wing on every floor sockets to charge your cell phones drinking water on all floors excellent cafetaria that serves good clean wholesome home like food at a surprising reasonable price.
I am 27 years old 5'5'' and weigh 225 17 weeks pregnant and have had previous heart surgery to correct a genetic heart defect known as hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. I have been having heart palpitations sometimes 4-5 times a day the past few weeks so my cardiologist had me do a holter moniter. my question is can a holter cause a false quickening?
I m 37 years old. 3 years ago I had my mital and aortic valve replaced with mechanical valves. 16 years ago I recieved a ICD. I take metoporol and coumadin. I just had an echo that was normal. I have low blood pressure and a slow heart beat, 60 s. My cardiologist says that is normal for me. I ve been having hard heart beats that keep me up at night and sometime annoy me at work. I work out when I can 3-4 times a week. I mostly do cardio and a small amount of lifting. I have Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy so my workouts aren t what I wish they were. Recently when playing softball I m easily winded. More than usual. I told my cardiologist and he wasn t too concerned. He said he didn t want to go looking for a problem. Any advice?
Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?
My name is Julie, I am a 49 year old with hcm. I am scheduled for a cauterized ablation in early Sept. due to the frequencies and lengths of my arrhythmias. I am concerned because I was hoping to have the alcohol ablation and affraid they are just treating my symptoms, rather than the hcm?
