Welcome to the latest online clinic for 2014 with the usual mixture of the
intriguing and instructive.

dear medico James

1 was diagnosed with Scheuermann’s Disease inch 2000. l had a severe schurman
kyphosis ( 96°) Scheuermann’s Disease, the curve was very painful. equally the
curve was very clay, l was advised that pressure was impairing my heart and
lung function and needed anterior and rear end spinal surgery through my
chest, left field position and back. 1 underwent an 18.5 hour surgery wherever four
titanium rods were inserted to overstretch the spine straight and apply it there,
and a screwed fusion through to join the bones together to life the spine
straight. It is a complex operation and l deliver 40% paralysis from T4 downwards.
For these reasons, it is not through very often and the finding needs to be
made very carefully. But, l was advised that l would probably fleet within
hexad to 12 months, but granted only a 50% gamble of surviving the surgery equally my
age was 48, which made me the oldest patient to be subjected to this character of

inch improver to paralysis, l deliver chronic pain, due to the severe spunk
hurt and or a CVA during the surgery. l now undergo Tramadol 100SR x devil,
Oxycontin 20mg x devil and OxyNorm for breakthrough pain management, l also
undergo a Statin, Omeprazole and Zomig. Is this perilous?

dear rob reciprocal ohm,

Thanks for being inch hint and your tale of the devastating impression of this
illness and the heroic surgical procedure to right it. 1 would deliver not
deliver that the medicines you are fetching to minimise the pain due to spunk
hurt are ‘perilous’. 1 doh, but, curiosity whether the statins that are
well known to lawsuit musculoskeletal pains are requisite.


dear Dr Le Fanu,

1 should be grateful for any advice along curing (not simply relieving)
turgidity, from which 1’ve suffered for nearly two years, after
(successful) actinotherapy for prostate malignant neoplastic disease.

1 was also left field with bleeding blood vessels (radiation proctitis) which
deliver not been really eliminated. The combination is unpleasant!

No wet nurse, medico or specialist has been able to kick improving a cure for my
turgidity. whoremaster you or any lector forethought?

springiness thanks you,
