Hi!
Welcome to healthcaremagic.com,Do not take any aspirin or other anti-inflammatory for 10 days before surgery. Occasionally these drugs can interfere with the blood's ability to clot and can actually increase the amount of bleeding during and after surgery. If you're on any medication - including over the counter drugs - be sure to ask your doctor whether or not you can continue taking that medication. And if not, how far in advance of surgery you must stop. It's important that you not make any plans for activities in the days following surgery. After your time in the hospital, you will spend even more time recovering at home. post op recovery entirely depends on how the procedure was,any blood loss,your general fitness etc..Take care.

Hi, I am a 51 year old man, I had a dissected carotid artery on 12/8/2010, a stent was placed in my carotid. Follow up shows that the blood flow is very good. During the episode at the time I had confusion, saw lights in left eye (dissection was on left side) and some headaches, not severe. I have had 2 follow up MRI s and MRA s which show improvement. I was put on keppra as a precaution and have recently been weaned off of it. My question is approximately 4 weeks ago I began having a sort of numbing sensation (warm or cool) on the right side of my face about an inch wide from about my temple across my cheek bone to about my nose, could this be related, and if so how? This sensation is not constant but frequent. I am otherwise in good health, take aspirin and 40mg simivastin a day, 6 1 and 175 lbs.

I am a steroid dependant ( Taking HISONE) due to adrenal insufficiency. For the last six months I am on ATT. The Dr. says my TB treatment is a prolonged one and it may go for one and half years. During treatment ( third month) I had liver problems. After taking medication I am OK. Now blood is coming whenever I pass stools. Is this due to TB medication side effects. As and when I have this problem I have asked to take Tab SITCOM FOR 14 days. For the past one months I am having severe legal pain ( Both Bottom foot and calf muscle) Pain in the calf muscle is persisting even when I am resting. I shall be grateful if you could Kindly mail your answers to YYYY@YYYY . I am 54 year old weighing 53. 8 KG and height 5 feet 2 inches.

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much
