Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- I have mild myasyhenia gravis and have recently had heart surgery. could surgery, or anesthetics aggravate or exacerbate myasthenia gravis symptoms?
I was also given intravenous antibiotics prior to and during surgery. i am wondering if this could have exacerbated Myasthenia Gravis symptoms that are usually controlled by mestinon.
- Were any breast cancer patients given taxol and end up on a ventilator because of breathing problems
doctors aren't sure if condition is pneumonia, ards or something else, but she is in ICU and on a ventilator, doctors don't seem to be making her any better and am wondering if anyone else experienced this and HOW YOU WERE TREATED, WITH WHAT PROCEDURES AND/OR MEDICATIONS
- Are there any long term effects of the blurred vision side-effect?
I woke up at 10:45 with some cramping. After about 30 minutes without relief I took Miralax and Ibuprofen together. I went to work at 3 and moved heavy boxes for about 2 hours with minimal cramping. I ate a normal lunch/supper and went to bet at 10:00 PM. I got out of bed at 10:30 to get a drink and realized after having been back for a while that I was having trouble seeing the digital clock. I got back out of bed at 11:30 and went to get a drink. After entering the kitchen and putting my glasses on I realized that I couldn't hardly see the clock. It got slightly worse after that to the point that I was seeing double vision in my left eye (with my right eye closed). It is almost gone now.
Other Relevant information: I have a lazy eye (my right). I have more than higher than average blood pressure.
