Typically, people experience sudden onset of chest pain or shortness of breath. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My syrinx is almost wall to wall in my spinal cord. If they drain the syrinx will the spinal cord rejuvenate itself?
HARD TO PREDICT: If your syrinx is creating a compressive effect within spinal cord, risk of future deterioration is very real indeed, and would try to get this under control before more neurological disability ensues. Although you may not necessarily reverse all the pre-existing issues, the likelihood of prevention and cessation of the damage is very good if surgery is performed. Please discuss fully with doc. ...Read more
Depends: Most of pulmonaty emboli cause shortness of breath more than pain .

What are the differences between a public umbilical cord blood bank and a private umbilical cord blood bank?
Possibly: If the blood clot is over the coverings of the brain, such as a subdural hematoma, or epidural hematoma, surgery to decompress and extract is often vital. A blood clot intracranially is a much more difficult process with a 60% mortality by one year. An aneurysmal rupture is a clearcut medical emergency and can kill 50% prior to reaching hospital. ...Read more

Blood clot at 12 yrs ago after spinal surgery. Got in lungs. Have times where I have heavy shortness of breath for days. Is this related to the clot?
It's possible: It's possible that the part of the lung that was closed off from its blood supply 12 years ago when you got the clot has now developed scarring and so that part of the lung is dysfunctional. Who knows what happens when you get those bouts of shortness of breath. Perhaps, that part of the lung is making an overall difference. ...Read more
