    Dears,
    My mother had a lumber lacminectomy surgery decompression in hospital on 2012-2-24 and developed buttock clip pressure sore after disacahged from Hong Kong St. Teresa Hospital on 2012-3-3. She was admitted in another Hospital Authorty's Kwong Wah Hospital on 2012-3-27 with antibiotic treatment and wound cleansing daily. She was discharged on 2012-4-14 with nursing care at home by wound cleansing bi-daily.
    However her wound doesn't heal and subcutaneous tissue still be seen at present even though she has no infection.
    I am anxious for her old age of 71 and diabete. I takes a long time not seeing her healing. Please give special medical advice for better prognosis. She is using frame for mobility and in urinary catherisation now.
    Thanks to all,

    I forgot to say that I used Lose It!, a free online program, to help me lose weight for my diabetes problems. I also heard of a method of treating wounds with a sugar/iodine product. You could search for those things online. There is a good website with information from Dr. David Williams, also. I think it is his name plus dot com. Hope this helps a little. I will pray for your mom and you. I love Hong Kong, by the way. I used to go to church on Nathan Road at the Anglican church in TST.

    I found that allopurinol gave me candida problems which include dizziness and mental and physical fatigue and immune problems. There is an anti-candida diet and there is a product I have not tried called Threelac (from Japan). Probiotics help, like active yogurt cultures. I stopped taking the allopurinol. I found a gout diet instead. It emphasizes fruits and vegetables, and low consumption of seafood products and meats. God bless you as you care for your mother. Ask for healing in Jesus' name!

  • Also have decreased kidney function 25% of kidneys are functioning. When I went in the hospital in May 2014 , 2 small blood clots were found ( lung and also in right leg ) Plus I had Gout and continued to have pain in the knee and swelling in right leg. Now I am ok, but still taking 5 mg of prednisone (for a 10 day period) I was taking prednisone while in the hospital as well and after when I returned home continued. I went to the Rheumatologist and he didnt like the way the hospital dispensed the medication. (He said it took too long the way it had been prescribed) So he told me not to continue it that way and to follow it his way so he increased the dosage to 40 mg and then tapered to 20 and then to 10 mg. off for a total 6 days, but i was still in pain in my knee and swelling. He told me to continue for a 10 day period 5 mg. but i still had some pain and swelling. He told me to do another 10 day period with 5 mg . The reason is I had to be attack free in order to start my 50 mg of Allopurinol 3 times a week which I started today. I dont have any pain in my right leg but it still swells a little when I am walking a lot, but when I elevate it, swelling goes down and leg is normal. At night, I sleep with a pillow under my legs which helps. The other thing is my kidney doctor wants to put me on Calcitriol (Vit. D) He wants to do this in September and I want to know is this ok to take because of my "decreased kidney function"? My calcium blood level is 9.0 right now and previous blood reports Calcium levels were 9.2, 8.6, 9.4 and 9.1 Wouldnt this be considered a normal calcium level. I understand that too much calcium in the blood is not good. I also wanted to mention that I have high blood pressure for many years and when I went in the hospital, they took me off the High blood pressure medication Quinapril (20 mg) and I am still off it. I lost 15 lbs and BP pressure is about 130/70 but eventually Dr. wants to put me back on it. As for the Hyperparathyroidism which was was shown on my last blood test that i took. Is it possible that the Prednisone that I have been taking could have caused this? I appreciate any help you can give me on the above. Thank you.

  • I keep having an allergic reaction while ONLY in my apartment. I've had these symptoms with (worsening over time) since moving in. I would like to know if I have a possible mold allergy because my place is very old and has no ventilation.

    My symptoms such as the swelling, edema, throat tightness, and trouble breathing all go away within forty minutes of leaving my apartment and return within thirty minutes of being home. I also have greater mental clarity while away from home. I would like to pinpoint what is making me react. I own two cats, but I have never reacted to them before.

    My symptoms with the swelling also worsen upon eating soy sauce, cheese, or when I add salt, which has never been an issue until the recent weeks, about the time my throat started mildly closing. Soy sauce made my ankles triple in size for three days, as well as my calves and feet. I couldn't bend my toes or fit my shoes and I had difficulty breathing and strange tingling in my calves and ankles. I have never even mildly swollen from any foods in my life.

    I have only tried Zyrtec and Claritin. Zyrtec keeps away all the swelling, but Claritin doesn't. Claritin did help me with my dog allergy, but it is not with whatever is going on in my apartment.

    Probably either toxic mold or pesticides you should move. Wish it was better news. I've had MCS for 17 yrs and if you don't do something about your situation you may have permanent damage to your immune system.
