Doing okay, my dog has surgery july 10th to remove a mass from his head, kind of worried about it but the doctor says he has a good feeling its something benign.
GE Reflux, if I may enquire?Today, the doctor put me on a strict diet. No alcohol or caffeine for a while. Also no carbonated drinks. There are a few other things to this diet, I am just mentioning what I am going to miss the most over the next few months or until I get used to not having them. If it will get my stomach symptoms down, it will be worth the sacrifice. He also advised that I add more physical activity to my daily routine - I get physical activity on nice weather days, that means I need to use a gym when the weather sucks.
Good call, regretably not treating it will inevitably lead to a lower esophageal adenocarcinoma. Not tomorrow, not next week, not even next year. But another decade of continued irritation will. In case you needed more motivation.Yeah. That’s it. As much as I love beer, I do not love these symptoms, so bye-bye to getting buzzed off IPAs.
PV is an permanent deferral for blood donation because your excess red cells are being produced by an abnormal process and therefore are not low risk enough to put in the body of someone who is already seriously ill or injured. This is an FDA rule. It's potentially dangerous for the recipient patient, who by definition is already in compromised health. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.I had 700ml drained today and I asked the nurse if I could donate blood and she said she didn't see why I couldn't. Mind you she is a nurse that deals with Phlebotomy.
So somebody is wrong and you never answered my question as to why or linked any information with a definitive answer.
