    Protimenow Update

    Sounds rough. I just got off Plavix after 6 months for stents. I never had any bleeding problems connected to Plavix.

    TAVR Forum

    I'm a member at Mended hearts and Heart Valve Surgery. I had TAVR 6 months ago, so I understand the procedure. What I am looking for is other people who have had TAVR to share info and asks questions.

    Good News

    I was put on Plavix when I had my stents and TAVR. I had bad arthritic pain starting about 2 weeks after starting Plavix, which is a known side effect. I decided I would just put up with it instead of asking for a different med and see if I could stop it after 6 months. I messaged my...

    Doxy and Blood Pressure

    There might have been 2, but no way to be sure. I had some type of insect bite on my back, but by the time I thought to check for a tick it was about a week later.

    COVID-19 - How are you spending your time?

    I want to learn to draw, but I stay busy doing other things. Getting the yard and garden cleaned up, planting the garden, cutting grass (a 10 hour job), plus some projects I need to get done are keeping me busy.

    Doxy and Blood Pressure

    All morning, my BP was running about 155/93. Without taking an additional meds, about 2 pm it suddenly dropped below 120/80. The one thing I noticed that was different was all morning, I had to pee about every half hour. Something had been causing me to retain fluids. I guess when fluid level...

    Doxy and Blood Pressure

    Maybe not. I skipped the doxy last night and this morning and my BP is still running quite high. Going to give it another day without doxy and see what happens.

    Does anyone know of a forum for TAVR? I've looked in the past and never found one.

    Doxy and Blood Pressure

    I skipped the 2nd dose of doxy (2 a day) and heart rate is back to normal and BP is still a little high, but much lower than this morning after taking the morning dose. I wish I understood why. I had a reaction to Bactrim a few months ago as well, but it didn't effect BP or HR. I've taken both...

    Doxy and Blood Pressure

    I found a tick on me that I think was probably there for over 48 hours. I called doctor and she called in prescription for doxycycline. On the 3rd day of taking it, my BP shot up from my normal of slightly below 120/80 to 150/90. On the 4th day (today), my BP is even higher and my heart rate...

    Blood pressure change? And murmur.

    If you call your local hospital, they might be able to hook you up with a cardiologist.

    Corona Virus Feb 2020

    Some questions: Do you remove shoes and disinfect them when entering your home? Do you remove clothes and wash them after being out? Do you use a disinfectant when doing laundry? Do you disinfect your car after being out, assuming you drove? Do you know the proper way to put on and remove an...

    Corona Virus Feb 2020

    Heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and others. Anything that depresses immune system. Lung conditions are bad because the virus attacks the lower respiratory system.

    Corona Virus Feb 2020

    I watch Dr John Campbell in the morning. He is very calm and measured. Then in the evening I watch Peak Prosperity.

    Corona Virus Feb 2020

    The main reason we are told not to wear a mask is because governments screwed up and there are not enough even for health professionals. Don't they tell people with the virus to wear a mask? What I am suggesting is if everyone wore a mask, we could then be sure everyone with the virus was...

    Corona Virus Feb 2020

    It doesn't make sense to me. Who will take care of the kids when they do get the coronavirus? I can't see how this can flatten out the curve. There are models of what has worked - China, Taiwan, S Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and I think Hungary. Governments keep pushing social distancing...

    Pneumonia vaccine

    When I got mine, I was told Prevnar 13 and then 1 year later Prevnar 23. I tried to get Prevnar 23 after 11 months and was told Medicare wouldn't cover it until after 12 months.

    Corona Virus

    I think it has a lot to do with how much the underlying disease is stressing the body, how weak the immune system is, and the amount of inflammation in the body. For example, hypertension is listed as a major factor, but from what I have learned, if it is controlled with medication then it is...
