Ironically the good news is, it is now the FDA's job to figure out why my medication failed
- The surgeon also wanted assurance my heart was okay for this major surgery, and I said I knew it was, but took the opportunity while hospitalized to have cardiologists find out. Results are in, http://www.vitaminc.foundation/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=13830&p=52083#p52101 and the same cardiologist who saw me in 2011 when my pericardium was filling with fluid (which also turned out to be caused by low cortisol!) said my heart condition is nearly PERFECT. Readings normal and no indication of future heart attack, no fluids, no blockages, etc. etc etc. ( )
Obviously this is good news on several fronts. (Thank you again Linus Pauling! Wherever you are.) For those unfamiliar with my family history, my father, the youngest of of many siblings, died of a heart attack at age 68. If my memory serves, he lived the longest out of all his siblings, but ALL his brothers and sisters died young of a heart attack.
johnwen, you advised getting on antibiotics prior to this mesh removal. I just had a midline installed, will be self-administering an Antibiotic IV at home, and should be able to keep it going before, during and after the surgery.
