Muy a menudo observamos fracturas verticales pero la duda siempre está en que es tratable y que no, esta es una ilustración muy buena para saber dónde está ese límite donde se pasa de lo predecible al heroísmo/fracaso
It's hard to believe it's been just over three weeks since surgery, but a quick count of my fingers and toes (didn't you know I have a few extra nubbins?!) assures me that's the case. I don't think me or any of my amazing medical team expected the healing to happen so fast.
I don't love when it gets dark at 5pm.⠀
People from northern latitudes generally fall into a lull this time of year. Whether it's seasonal affective disorder, vitamin D deficiency or something else, moods tend to be a little more down.⠀
Working out helps. A clean diet helps. Getting outside (read: walking the dog) helps.⠀
But frankly, it gets me thinking about my next vacation- Thailand!⠀
I'll soon (but not soon enough) be on my way Bangkok and Phuket. I've never been-Anyone have any recommendations? Let me know 😊
On the final day of Crohns and Colitis Awareness week, I want to talk about surgery.
It is estimated that 1 in 4 people with crohns disease will require some form of surgery within 10 years of diagnosis, and around 1 in 4 people with UC will need surgery at some stage of their journey.
Surgery in UC, more often than not will result on the formation of a stoma, either temporarily or permanently. A stoma is where the diseased colon is removed and the small intestine is brought out through the abdomen. A bag is then worn over the stoma to collect waste rather than going to the toilet in the usual way.
I have known since I was diagnosed on 2007 that at some point I would need this surgery. Until now I have been determined to try all other options and have made it this far but with very little success. As my options run out, surgery becomes a much more likely decision. This would result in having an ileostomy and wearing a bag, potentially for the rest of my life.
As I have wanted to learn more about how this would impact my life, I started this account to follow some inspirational people and surround myself with images of people wearing bags to normalise it. I will share my favourite pages that I am following that are helping to break the stigma that stems are just for old people or that having a stoma makes you less of a person it certainly does not and all of the accounts I will post on my story and breaking that taboo every single day.

Mas aquele que ao mesmo tempo trabalha com as mãos, com a mente e com o coração é um CIRURGIÃO. ㅤㅤ

Haftaya tatlı bir kapanış☺️
Bir gece evdeyken saat 23:00’te hastaneden aradılar ve şiddetli ağrısı olan bir gebe olduğunu söylediler. Hastamız Somali vatandaşıydı ve tam anlaşamıyorlardı.
Hastaneye geldik hemen. 18 hafta gebelik ve sağ yumurtalığın kendi etrafında dönerek kan akışının durduğu ve gangren ile karşı karşıya olduğunu gördük. Hemen kapalı ameliyata aldık hastamızı😣
Daha önce 4 kez sezaryen geçirmiş bu haftada bir gebeye Laparoskopi yeterince tehlikeliyken; hastamızın iç organlarının birbirine ileri derece yapışık olduğunu gördük😣
Sonuçta yumurtalığı kurtardık ve gebelik zarar görmeden bitti ameliyatımız. Bir takım ilaçlarla gebeliğin devamını takip ettik👍🏻
Ameliyat sırasında önceki sezeryanlara bağlı o kadar kötü bir görünüm vardı ki “sezaryenini yapacak doktora Allah kolaylık versin” diye dua etmiştim😅
Kendime dua ettiğimi düşünmemiştim doğrusu🤷🏻♂️☺️
Aradan haftalar geçti arada hiç kontrole gelmeyen annemiz 38. hafta çıka geldi ve sezaryeni mutlaka sizde olmak istiyorum dedi😣😅
Bu seferki öncekinden de zor😣
Dualarla başlayan sezaryen doğumumuz da gayet yolunda gitti şükür🙏🏻
Ve böyle bir güzellik dünyaya geldi👼🏼 Adı Ömer😇
Ameliyat öncesi aileye bu kadar çok sezeryanın ne kadar riskli olduğunu anlatmaya çalışsam da bazı toplumsal baskılar ve gelenekler insanın hayatının, hayati tehlikesinin bile önüne geçebiliyor malesef🙏🏻
Şimdiki durum 5 sezaryen + 1 Laparoskopi😅
Ve ileride sonraki sezeryanını yapacak doktora Allah kolaylık versin 🙏🏻😅
Is surgery on your list of "To Do's" this holiday season? ⠀
In reviewing both news and journal articles, it appears that surgeries performed tend increase in December. ⠀
Why is that? ⠀
-Holiday time off eases the PTO required for surgery. ⠀
--Family and friends are near to help with the burden during recovery. ⠀
It's the perfect storm to schedule surgery. Which is why we are diving deep into different surgeries this month. ⠀
Can you guess the surgery in the video? Answer in stories ^^^
What is an anesthesiologist?
💉An anesthesiologist is a physician (MD/DO) who keeps patients safe during surgery or procedure. Under general anesthesia, we control every aspect of the patient’s physiology from their breathing to their blood pressure. We administer medication so the patient is unaware and comfortable. Other types of anesthesia include sedation, spinals, epidurals, and nerve blocks. We tailor each anesthetic for the patient based on the surgery and medical history.
💉To become an anesthesiologist, one must complete 4 years of medical school, 1 year of internship, and 3 years of residency. Fellowships include cardiac, pediatrics, OB, regional anesthesia and pain medicine and are 1 year long.
💉 In total, anesthesiologists train for over 12,000-15,000 hours (12 years after HS). Board certification requires passing an 8 hour written exam and a 3-4 hour oral exam.
💉 Anesthesiology is the perfect combination of thinking and doing. We do many procedures: intubations, central lines, arterial lines, epidurals/spinals, nerve blocks, and TEEs. I also like seeing the effects of the drugs and my interventions.
