- Can mrsa cause chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction?
I had a small bowel obstruction caused by adhesions from an appendectomy carried out 20yrs previously and had grumbling pain ever since but been labelled a malingerer by my family GP until one day at work when I started with terrible tummy ache and sickness like I'd never known, fetching up bile with force. I hated going to hospital after yrs of being called a moaner but after a day of rolling round in pain, temperature of 103 an dehydration, my Mammy insisted we go and I was seen straight away - to my shock I was in theatre within 3hrs with a serious obstruction.
I never really recovered... The obstruction returned after 2 days and a portion of necrotic bowel was removed, then further fever and cellulitis then MRSA and deaths door.... Isolation in high dependency (intensive care) wound break down, ventilated and all related issues that come with that - chest infection, pneumonia, bed sores. Total time in hospital 8 months. Negative pressure dressing on laparotomy wound, colostomy, picc, 4 rounds of vancomycin, minor flirt with heart failure (just water related) an eventually everything healed. Had a large incisional hernia to repair and some corrective work to the horrific scarring but then the neuropathy started plus problems eating, spewing up after any solid food, more than a few forks, diarrhoea and sickness or constipation nausea and pain driving me mad, tried all manner of drugs, nerve blocks, physio, floating tank, acupuncture, opiates, non opiates, spinal cord stimulation, an now a consultant just had a 'eureka' moment and said were you treated with vancomycin when you had MRSA? If so I'm pretty sure you have chronic intestinal pseudo obstruction and is 90% sure but wants to take a muscle biopsy to be certain. I've had so much surgery and bad news in the last 10yrs I'm terrified of germs, hospital acquired bugs and anaesthetics, is there any other way? Or can I have this test done awake - conscious sedation? I had it before during spinal cord surgery so I know what's involved and it's better than GA as I know what's going on, who is doing what to me etc...
Does anyone with a medical background know about this ailment/disease? Does it sound feasible that MRSA or it's treatment could have caused this? I was surgically debrided up to every other day when the vac pac/negative pressure machine and dressings were changed and the doctors told me I lost a great deal of tissue and had a lot of nerve damage due to the infection.
Any patient perspectives on this illness would also be very much valued in helping me make a decision, moving forward. If all this is going to accomplish is to attach a label to the pain but not actually change anything, after fighting it for 10yrs now, avoiding hospital as much as I can, I really can't see the point of exploratory surgerys and biopsys now when it is known that I have this propensity towards adhesions and a new wound means a potentially new adhesion growth site.
If it helps, the appendectomy happened when I was 10yrs old, the MRSA when I was 30 and I am now 40.

- Is it bad to take levorphanol tartrate if i have liver damage caused by hep c
I am receiving treatment from the V.A. in Los Angeles, Ca..
Last summer the va started to hint at forcing me to be seen by there pain mngt. team. Also I was to start treatment for my hep c, it was just becomming active. I knew that the interferon would be just a little stressful for aprox; one year so I offered to do there (the pain clinic) plan with a happy heart just after my liver stuff was done. So I went to LA only to find that the liver lab spent just 2 minutes with me to tell me that since I'VE have to wait a new liver drug to be approved I must do the pain clinic. So in six weeks I went from 200mg (5x4 per day) of methidone to 40mg (1 tab x 4 per day), and in just one week it was Oxycodone 40mg x 4 per day to 0. And all of this isij happening my liver gets more serroscised.

- My ex-boyfriend's effexor effects (1 response)
In my fifth year of living with my ex-boyfriend, he began taking Effexor and soon developed urinary incontinence, kidney failure and nightmares or night terrors so severe that he frequently screamed for prolonged periods, flailed and threw punches in his sleep. Upon ceasing to take Effexor, his sleep returned to normal. His kidneys also recovered, and he regained the ability to control urination. About a year after that, he was arrested for downloading child pornography, and I haven't spoken to him since. I'm not suggesting that Effexor caused him to become a pedophile, but it has been noted to produce personality changes in some users. It would be hard to ascertain whether any or all of these side effects resulted from the drug, but I would NEVER take it or allow anyone I cared about to do so. He had never exhibited any such symptoms before taking it, and I feel it ruined his life on many levels.

From this study (4 months ago):
The nausea is persistent and debilitating as is the fatigue. Nothing relieves the nausea. I was transplanted for esld Chronic Hep B but developed de novo autoimmune hepatitis with a touch of graft v. host disease.
The emotional troubles became extremely exacerbated post-transplant.
3 yrs post-transplant, my alkaline phosphatase is 3-4x above avg and my ggt remains at 635. I have developed cirrhosis of the new liver which is just under 3 yrs old due to autoimmune hepatitis. I have been told I will have to be re-transplanted.
