    After completing chemo. in Oct. 2015 for cancer, I had what I thought was a stroke, the following April 2016. I needed an ambulance,fast! It was a pulmonary embolism, instead. Noticed some memory loss, while in the hospital. Another major health scare in Dec.2016,and another PE this past Jan. Still wondering how I survived all of this. Didn't have the courage to join any support groups. Not good at asking for help!

  • Haldol by injection ....a deadly option

    Our 35 yr old son died after only 3 mos of receiving Haldol by injection coupled with Invega Sustenna and Cogentin for the horrible side effects. The Psych doctor assigned to his case had a standard regimen of increasing the dosage from 100mg, to 200mg and the 300mg by the 3rd month.He would not change the medication claiming it was a tested, proven
    & safe drug from the 1950's. Our mild mannered son was a walking zombie, tranquilized & over drugged, being prepared for his day in court to be freed of all charges of intentional wrong doing & with family to help him get the therapy he needed & change to a non-disabling medication. The hospital doctor & staff never wanted to believe the horrible side effects our son was experiencing. so when he advised them of his chest pain towards the end of his 90 days of hospitalization, the doctor simply pulled out his Rx pad & diagnosed the pain as acid indigestion. Our son was dead within a week, 5 days before his freedom.

    My daughter has CRPS and developed bilateral PE while inpatient in the ICU receiving ketamine infusions for the pain. She was on Lovanox during the 8 days of infusions. She is now on Xeralto and the PE has dissolved. She takes Lyrica for CRPS, and Cymbalta for a mood disorder. She takes lamotragine for seizures. She also takes Nucynta for pain.

    Should you take Benadryl for an allergy when you have multiple pulmonary embolisms, pulmonary hypertension, I am now on 24 hour oxygen as of Tuesday, May 23, the right chamber of my heart is markedly enlarged and a history of of other heart issues i.e., stent placement in the LAD and hypertension and two very minor strokes with only short term issues? I am told that a woman of my age shouldn't even be alive so I don't want to push my luck, to say the least. Thanks in advance for hopefully an expedited answer because I haven't been able to reach my doctor and I am having an allergic reaction to something airborne but I don't want to take any chances! God bless and I pray everyone is having a wonderful night and enjoying better health. If there is anyone out there with similar medical problems, I sure could use a shoulder!
