In the past
2016 Dr. said blood results and other tests indicated a condition called COMMOM VARIABLE IMMUNE DEFICIENCY DISORDER).He would have given me monthly injections of Gamma Globulin shots to keep away any more serious infections.He said without them any amount of antibiotics for infections would have little or no benefit to me. However, his own pharmacy rejected the prescription???
2016 neck; DX for ascending aortic aneurysm.Atherosclerosis vascular disease.Lower left thyroid cyst and also cyst in spleen.Pituitary disorder; lower Testosterone levels.
2016 CT left shoulder Images shows narrowing rotator cuff.Steroid shot was in vain.
2015 Spine CT-chronic compression deformity of L1-S1&L2-S1 ablated on 06-25-16 but only last one year*).L4.L5-S1 ablated 07-09-16.Occipital neck nerve also ablated in Sept.Herniation/compression traveling right S-1. Stenosis and facet arthropathy throughout lumbar spine.Non-rheumatoid arthritic changes of bilateral joints.C-1 osteoarthritis.some misalignment of C-3 & C-4 and C-7/T1.
2013 Adrenal benign tumor diagnosed.
Not finding anything in several visits to Duncan ER,except a need for even more antibiotics,it was later found renal failure, and sepsis.Then, they found on another visit a small intestinal blockage.Went home almost dying.Went back to hospital later. I then convalsed abdominal exploratory surgery on 12-28-16 for 14 days. Surgery took six hours. According to surgeon,Dr. Woods,my condition would have been almost impossible to believe whenever I had complained to other doctors as no previous doctor could have known how serious it was-if just thinking inside the box. This condition existed since birth operation.
One month after leaving the hospital I was re-admitted for a third time with a severe bladder infection that went to my kidneys.This relaspe of partial bowl blockage was because I was not over my operation yet...In other words the hospital dismised me too early...I was dismissed again on 02-01-17...after 3 more nights.
Later,Home care found negative result in a urine tests...but they did without culture. This failure resulted in me returning to the hospital with the beginning of a severe bladder infection. However, by this time,my operation had started to repair itself.
CT hip scan;Lesion on right humeral head near neck junction measuring8x9,11mm with peripheral sclerosis.Smaller similar lesion fraction in region of aterior leading to impingement.Hip steroid shots done later on 09-25-16 but did little help.
Later,some easing of pain only by useing Lidocaine patches on pelvic or hip area.
2016 Foley catheter for 3 weeks and then Dr Gose of help and even made bladder situation worse.
Dr. At Spine Care did all above nerve ablations above.
2014 hiatal hernia near esophagas but he said it was too risky to operate.
2014 Right synoval lumbar cyst removed I had only an increase in pain later ??????
2012 Nerve stimulater implanted for Occipital Peripheral Neuropathy pain....therefore no MRI can be done.
2010 Kansas Research Hospital DX; Vagal nerve disorder; neurogenic bladder, and urinary retention.
2008 Cystoscopy chronic bladder infections/vertigo DX..In St. Anthony hospital
2006 Bladder stimulater implanted..but in 2013
2004 Scar tissue removed along twenty foot of intestines...due to inflamation.
2001 (1993) C-4 thru C-7 fusions from severe falls and cervical infection.By Dr. in 1993 at hospital.
1992 Begining of over 20 years of Phyco-Therapy; Due to chilhood PTSD due to sexual and emotional abuse...causing deep depression.
1963 First UTI reported
Birth defect-left for dead;upside down /male-rotated stomach operation. Dr. showed nonenhancing cystic lesions within the Pancreas measuring 1.6 x 0.9 cm causing inflamation that effects digestion of food.Cyst involving the right heptic lobe of Liver.Hyperplasia of adrenal glands;reproducion of cells usually the first stage of cancer. Renal cyst. Mild atherosclerotic. He said there was a scar at the bottom of my heart by heart attack; guessing June of 2015.
He did a test and found partial Peripheral Artery disease in the legs, espcially left.
CT heart evaluation at Hospital showing a moderate blockage of the right Aorta in the abdoman.He also sent me to specialist in Pancress and Gut in OKC. She did a complete Pelvic ordered an Endoscopy to see if Pancress cancer; lesion 1.6 to 1.7 and still too small to remove.
Urologist, did proceeder on March 2017; showing my prostate and bladder were in good shape.He did find 4 calsified 'almost stones' on the right side and 2 on left....and other calsification near the bladder and lower stomach area. Therefore, It was determined that my UTI problem directly relates to body- muscle-imbalance and arthritis...hense, the pain I have and have been seeing pain specialist.
Dr. I decided to get off Cymbalta and it was one of the harder things I have ever done. It was making my hand tremors really uncontroable. Now, no more tremors.
Appointment on August 8th and 22nd to resme additional back ablations to last one year like before. L5-S1 on right. Later app. with the pain management specilist had to be cancelled because on 08-18-17 I spent overnight hospital due to Mini-stroke and warning signs of a re-emergent TIA...a condition caused when blood flow to part of the brain stops for a short period of time...they told me it was from a previous TIA and that serious signs that a major stroke may happen in the future. Symptoms of aphasia must then be considered.
Head CT 08-18-17; Areas of decreased force in the periventricular white matter
of the centrum semiovale creating sympoms of blood interuption and neuropsychiatric disorders. Also, age related atrophy.
Pre-cancer related issues last delt with on 08-28-17 at Duncan Skin Clinic; spots on top of head and on right arm & hand.

On 08-29-17 Given Wellbutrin to take; by integris for major depression.
Current medicines I take
(1) Neurotin 600mg is used to treat , Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Cough, , Epilepsy,, Fibromyalgia, , Hot Flashes, , Nausea/Vomiting, Chemotherapy Induced, Neuropathic Pain, Occipital Neuralgia, Pain, Periodic Limb Movement Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, Postherpetic Neuralgia, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, , Small Fiber Neuropathy, and Neuralgia, (2) Prazosin 5 mg relaxes veins and arteries so that blood can more easily pass through them. Used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). And inability to empty bladder. The drug may help reduce your nightmares, but it is not a cure for PTSD. Nightmares and anxiety may come back if you stop taking your medicine. It lowers blood pressure which can make you feel dizzy. This usually stops when your body is used to the drug. (3) Diltiazem 249 mg is a calcium channel blocker that works by relaxing the muscles of your heart and blood vessels. Diltiazem is used to treat high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), and certain heart rhythm disorders. (4) Eliquis 5 mg is used after surgery to prevent a type of blood clot called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can lead to blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). It begins to reduce blood clotting within a few hours after taking the first dose. If you stop taking Eliquis its effect on clotting begins to wear off within 24 hours. It is a prescription medicine used to: reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in people who have atrial fibrillation. It reduces the risk of forming a blood clot in the legs and lungs of people. For example; people who just have had hip or knee replacement surgery. (5) Pantoprazole 40 mg is in a group of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. It decreases the amount of acid produced in the stomach and used to treat erosive esophagitis. (6) Welbutrin 150 mg SR treats major depressive disorder and seasonal affective disorder and as well as generalized anxiety disorder.The medicine may be effective for the treatment of panic disorder and stress reduction. Wellbutrin is FDA approved for treating major depressive disorder, NOT bipolar depression specifically. However, there is growing belief it is one of the antidepressants LEAST likely to cause a switch into mania.
