I'm told that lupron (leuprolide) trigger prevents ohss. Why am i still in sharp pains 60hrs post IVF egg retrieval? Is it pms? Trigger e2 4200, 32 eggs retrieved.

I'm told that lupron (leuprolide) trigger prevents ohss. Why am i still in sharp pains 60hrs post IVF egg retrieval? Is it pms? Trigger e2 4200, 32 eggs retrieved.

PLEASE: Call your ivf doc about this, do not spend time online. Complications following egg retrieval are uncommon but can be serious; and nothing absolutely predicts ohss but peak e2 of 4200 is definitely risky. Your ivf doctor wants to hear from you! ...Read more

Thyroid hormone.: We all need thyroid hormones for proper health. If you had your thyroid removed, you will have to take thyroid replacement meds for the rest of your life. If you are taking them, the level has to be monitored to be sure you are getting enough for your body to function normally. If your level is low, the medicine is increased and the level is rechecked regularly to make sure it is stays normal ...Read more

Dizzy occ so doc called ambulance. Nothing found but 'old age' (woman at 95). What effect is combo of pacemaker, estrogen, nitro patch and other ntg?

Dizzy occ so doc called ambulance. Nothing found but 'old age' (woman at 95). What effect is combo of pacemaker, estrogen, nitro patch and other ntg?

Dizzy?: There are many reasons for dizziness and heart disease is only one of them. If "nothing was found", a pacemaker isn't going to help and shouldn't be used. Nitroglycerin and nitro patches are used for chest pain and can make dizziness worse. As i said in an earlier post to you, if you feel better on estrogen, i would use it, but that's just my opinion. ...Read more

I've had 4 ekgs, 2 stress, 6 holters, mri, cat 4 echos. Are these enough test see if structrallu normal? What could be causing multifocal pvcs?

I've had 4 ekgs, 2 stress, 6 holters, mri, cat 4 echos. Are these enough test see if structrallu normal? What could be causing multifocal pvcs?

Too many: I hope that all these tests were not ordered by the same physician, at least not within a short time. The repeated tests you list, if all normal, are more than enough to definitively exclude structural heart disease. "multifocal pvcs", in-and-of-themselves, are not life - threatening. They need treatment only if they cause troubling symptoms, or if there is underlying heart disease. See an ep doc. ...Read more

Echo 2 mos ago, results = LA dilated, mild functional mr and trivial functional tr.holter result sinus rhythm, PVC seen 32.7%. Now discomfort jawline?

See your doctor: To assess whether the pain in your jaw line is related to your heart you will need a stress test. This is especially the case if that jaw discomfit occurs with exertion. The echo cardio gram will not necessarily give you information about your arteries, especially if these new symptoms. Good luck to you! ...Read more

Are pediatric and adult-onset cyclic vomiting syndrome (cvs) different conditions?

Possibly: Cvs in children has much more study behind it than in adults, and therefore, less information to draw from. Recent studies suggest that many of the characteristics of cvs are independent of age. As the cause is still unknown, treatment consists of mainly managing the symptoms. As with all conditions, seek the advice of your physician and internal medicine specialist. ...Read more
