I also take a number of supplements i.e. Vitamins b, d, e, calcium + D, fish oil, one a day and some others I can't remember right now. It's 3:30 in the morning here right now in Tampa, FL but this is so important to me and I feel so thankful to have found you and this website! I guess I am looking for a number of answers; I'm already seeing a grief counselor and taking meds for depression. I would really like to know how do I get well. I would like to get my memory back. In 6th grade I won the National Spelling Bee for Florida - today I can't remember how to spell. I can't repeat 6 numbers in a row. The orthodic surgeon for my leg told my I had terrible bones. I had a dexa bone scan yesterday and it showed I am in the normal range. The cardiologist said I have no problems, but the next day when I saw the pulmonologist, he said I have an irregular heartbeat and low SATS. The cardiologist ran an EKG (which I think is useless because it only lasts roughly 5 seconds), and said is looked great. My open heart surgery was for chronic afib, the surgeion retired- what do I do? Get a second opinion? The leg surgeon wants to do a knee replacement- I'm getting a second opinion on that too because he told me 2 months ago that he didn't think I was going to need one, but I would have pain until 1 year after the accident (Jan. 18, 2010). I am starting to have some doubts, but my two most pressing ones are how I get over these nervous breakdown symptoms ( 95% short term). What should I do about this leg? I just keep waiting for the next thing to happen, soeone else to pass away, or get sick or just some other tragedy. I am still grieving badly ver my sons and sister. Dr I hope a don't have dementia
(sp) or some kind of mental disease that can't be cured. I hope I don't have to have a knee replacement right now - I don't feel that I can emotionally handle it and I am scared to death after everything that has happenned. What do you think? and please be frank with me. Thanks alot!!
