Not sure if this will confuse you more! But this is what I got.
Born with hole in heart. Never knew it. May be source of clots, if my heart slows down.
Cavernous hemangioma in the right cerebellum – a blob of veins in back of head. May bleed. Needs to be monitored yearly (supposedly not the cause of any of my newest symptoms/problems). Was told if I am having balancing issues or can’t pick up a pencil, come into the hospital to get checked.
MRI lighting up – unknown – maybe because I had a vision of the Mother Mary and Brother Andre when I was in the machine?
Need to be tested (EEG) for seizures (appt. in June).
Haven’t had any “seizures” caused by sounds lately since taking magnesium. Balance seems to be returning slowly. Still a bit unsteady on my feet. Seem to be getting better every day.
Should be okay as long as I don’t have another TIA/mini stroke within the next 3 months. I am currently taking a daily dose of aspirin to thin my blood.
Thyroid results – not cancerous – I have a 5 mm cyst in my right side and a 3 mm cyst on the right. My sister researched it on the net, said it may be due to lack of iodine (salt). I have been on a NO SALT/caffeine/chocolate diet since taking the drug Carvedilol in November because that is what my cardiologist told me to do. I really want to get off this drug A.S. A. P. My heart function has improved to my almost normal (43%). 60% would be ideal.
The chemo drug (Epirubicin) is the cause of my heart failure in October (heart function was less than 32%).
The cancer drug that I’m on for 5 years (Tamoxifen) -side effect – strokes. Taken off this drug.
Ovaries/Uterus may have to be taken out to stop the estrogen hormone from returning because my type of breast cancer feeds off it. If it spreads, it would go to my brain, bones, or liver.
My family doctor wants me to have a chest x-ray to see if there are clots in my lungs.
More tests mean more radiation. I am seriously considering not having it done. At this point I want to get off all the medication I’m on and go to a naturopath. However, I’m not sure my LTD coverage will allow me to do so. They are going to want me to stick to conventional medicine, which at this point is doing more harm than good.
