Bill, I'm sorry to hear about what must have been a pretty terrifying experience, especially since you were alone at the time.  I hope you have a full recovery.  Be well

ABill, sorry to hear about your recent health problem, glad that throughout this time you were able to get to the ER. What a feeling you must have experienced and lucky that you made the ER. Get well and stay healthy throughout the COVID-19 period. The summer is coming and people can get outside as the States begin to open. We have stopped on the mask mandate but many still use them. Get well soon. Stuart

Bill,

I am so sorry that you had such a harrowing experience. And amazed that you had the presence of mind to get yourself to the ER, after taking a shower, no less!!  Take care of yourself--Hoping you are getting stronger every day.

Cheers,

Dianne

Bill : It seems you were both smart and lucky at the same time . Not only recognizing something was wrong and taking prompt action and lucky that your condition did not worsen . Please follow doctors orders to a t' and full recovery should follow . Hang in there

Hi, Peter

Don't be silly, doctors don't know what they're talking about. 😀😀 In February, a doctor put two non-existent drug allergies into my medical record, and underdosed me on another drug, probably by misunderstanding a couple things I'd said. I'd blame the fact that he's from China, but he's not. 😀😀

Hi, Leslie

It was only a little terrifying. The same thing had happened on Feb 1(?), and I got over it in about an hour, without going to hospital or doctor. Actually, this (Feb 16) was the 4th time somethingbl like it had happened. The first was in 2013. On that occasion, I couldn't count backwards from 10, but the doctor decided. it was not a stroke.

Bill, It sounds like you are having a series of ministrokes (TIAs).  Not something to ignore.  Have you seen a specialist?

Bill,

Sorry to hear about your stroke.  It sounds from your message like you have substantially recovered.  I hope that is the case.  Keep us up to date on your progress.

Leslie,Joe - This stroke was hemorrhagic. All the rest were thought to be ischemic (and TIA). I'm going to see a specialist. Maybe one of the doctors I saw in the hospital was a specialist.

Sorry to hear about your stroke I was told by a cardiologist that apixaban will prevent blood clots and strokes and needed for aging people I am only saying this for information for anybody who wants to live sincerely ron paine

Ronald Paine

I probably should not think about strokes or other medical issues  as I live in brooklyn center mn 4 blocks from the police station  Maybe I should consider a bullet proof vest  Life is always interesting ron paine

William F. Magaletta

Ron - Thanks for the info, but my February stroke was hemorrhagic, not ischemic. Apixaban (Eliquis) is an anticoagulant (prevents clotting, not bleeding). I was on an anticoagulant (Plavix, or clopidogrel) when it happened, and the doctor took me off of it because it may have been a partial cause of the stroke. He thinks the stroke may have been caused by weak blood vessels in the brain (MRI showed that I have that), Plavix, and high blood pressure.  He switched me to one baby aspirin a day, beginning 3 weeks after I left the hospital. During those 3 weeks I was taking no blood thinner (anticoagulant) at all. In fact, in the hospital they infused me with platelets, just the opposite of giving me a blood thinner.

I don't understand "anybody who wants to live sincerely" or what it has to do with taking apixaban. Does it have something to do with a religion?

Funny thing, I always felt like I had weak blood vessels in the brain.  Maybe I knew something! :-)

Ron : Living in Brooklyn Center Mn , four blocks from the police station is ground zero for the madness sweeping the country at the present moment !! What to do , get a bulletproof vest , get a machine gun , get out of town , hunker down or do nothing ? Who can say ? At the very least keep your head down and say some prayers . Good luck !!!!

HI bill I am not a doctor and I was only repeating what the cardiologist told me and apparently it did not be in your best interest     I felt it was important information as the cardiologist told me that people live to be 100 because the med will help prevent strokes . and I was not aware of  your medical condition  Actually I objected iniatialy to the med  but the doctor told me they were trying to save my life as I had cancer on my heart etc  at the time but they were convincing that the med was important as with my family history of males having stroke and cancer and  dieing around 70 I am in remission now and live an active life  BE well and safe

HI peter The madness is apparent as another individual was shot and killed  sunday resisting arrest and was a thug with a record however he was white and no protest was done...Our mixed neighborhood with single family houses has a very low crime rate and we have homosexual chinese hmong viet nam white  and black  people who we all have helped one another during severe weather and family crisis at times  I feel very fortunate blessed that we all can be friends    Actually I find it ironic that saturday morning after the biggest arrest I found that a yard sale was taking place nearby selling stufff like t shirts etc from the protest  Also there were 2 black guys with rifles  watching the people and cars and with the national guard behind barricades and fences nearby.. Only in America

Peter  We also have mexican and central american people in the neighborhood                                                My solution to the problem is     1.  have tv ads on how to behave during a police stop and for the police to have more training on how to behave when arresting people. Certainly no smoking ads on tv have helped people curtail smoking   2. do not just throw money at the families as that occured with george floyd family 27 million dollors it will not solve the problem  or bring him back  3. I contacted state and city political people but have not gotten a response as they seem  to inflame the problem with the media   Incidentently I majored in sociology and worked as a social worker in florida and vermont  and know that emotions and actions will run rampant . thanks for your response 


04/20/21 12:20 PM #83    

 

Peter Meisenzahl

Ron : To say you live in a diverse neighborhood is an understatement !! What a homogenized , mixed group of Americans and all probably get along well because everyone treats everyone else as they want to be treated . Your suggestions on solving our current difficulties are plain and simple and accurate in my opinion . Good luck when the Chauvin verdict comes down  !!

Hi peter  oh also  I forgot russian and african liberian immigrants in the nearby neighborhood   thanks for your concern  Actually brooklyn center police station was quiet last night  and now they are erecting new fences maybe in anticipation of the wright forthcoming trial brcause only manslaughter is the charge against the lady cop   I talk to national guard people and they some seem subdued as new orders are coming down everyday and they have different orders for different responses that are also changing   my general impression of native  minnesota people is that they are insular even though many people travel and even a national weather person thinks that the north  east does not have enough equipment during a snow storm   again thanks for your response

Hi, Ron - Cancer on the heart!? That's very rare. By any chance, is it why you're in Minnesota (Mayo Clinic)? Good luck!

Speaking of snow removal, Southern California (I live there) is kind of funny in that department.  They're OK where snow is expected, and where tourists are important, but otherwise it's funny. One morning in the 1970s, after a snowstorm, we drove out to Palmdale (the high desert, near Edwards AFB), expecting to have breakfast at Howard Johnson's. There wasn't much snow, but it had not been plowed at all, and the Ho Jo's was closed due to some thin snow cover in the parking lot. You could easily scuffle through it.   Looked pretty funny to a New Englander.

HI bill  actually I had large b cell cancer last summer  which was fast growing and fast dieing with 6 chemo treatments      It affected my bone liver lung and heart  apparently caused by agent orange .  In remission now and also with pre cancer on my scalp which is treatable  I am using the veteran hospital in minneapolis as they seem to have a lot of experience approx 2000 cancer patients  . My wife is using the mayo  clinic hospital after a misdiagnosis and operation  in  a minneapolis hospital     Mayo seems to be able to look at different aspects of a medical problem rather than just a one dimensional view point from some doctors   While waiting in a clinic at mayo  a young gal from california sat next to me shaking and said she was getting a genetic study   I thought at first it might be parkinsons but maybe they might be thinking crispr    just telling you this as you seem to be interested in medical    we  still get a few snow flakes as the temperature is 30 degrees but changing to warmer weather very  soon   Minnesota weather is similar to northern new england  with a lot  more wind and less  mountains   thanks for the correspondence
