Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
no I had not contacted my primary care physician prior to surgery.
I assumed it was just joint swelling due to osteoarthritis

Can you tell me what medical problems you have?

Spastic dystonia, degenerative disc disease with some spinal stenosis osteopenia [left hip]
osteoarthritis , G E R Ds,loss of hearing right ear, sinus and allergy problems,night sweats, headaches
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
these conditions would not cause this type of swelling. you have not given any information at all . do not charge this to my account as this appears fraudulent to me . you have been taking me in circles for well over an hour.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
