No news isn't always good news.

Saturday, February 13, 2021

A tiny piece of ice caused me to slip, fall face-first onto the edge of our back porch which is cement, broke my glasses, and I fell into the alleway and couldn't get up again. This falling has to stop....my husband came to the rescue again and took me to the ER. After a bunch of tests the doctors told me nothing was broken. Thank God. They also found two other things,
one from a CT scan, a 2 cm lymph node and a 1.3 cm lymph node under the jaw (maxilofacial). And from the ECG 12, a Right Bundle Branch Block. Never heard of a RBBB before. Went home and now 4 days after the fall, my face on the left side is still swollen with a lump under my eye and black and blue marks.

On the 11th I saw my family doctor as a follow-up because the ER advised it. He checked everything out and scheduled an echo cardiogram for me on Feb 24th. We'll keep an eye on the lymph nodes he said. That's it for now.

More snow is on the way here next week. We already had 30 inches...oh my, too much.

Been trying to keep to my food plan. I haven't been writing down the foods I eat. I just didn't feel like doing it....so sorry. Lent is coming and our house will be cleared of anything that resembles sugary morsels...no candy, cookies, ice cream etc. That will definitely help..right?

Have a great weekend out there in SparkPeople Land.

    So sorry you were injured But your lucky they found the lymph node problem now it can be addressed

    I had a similar thing I was feeling dizzy, exhausted. sick to stomach, pain everywhere, foggy brain, cement bowl movements, short term memory problem, weak bones from calcium not being absorbed
    I had 2 falls and broke my wrist and fractured a vertabre Doc checked my calcium and it was 10.5 my PTH was 400 plus my 24 hour urine test came back at well over 740
    It turned out to be a bad Parathyroid
    I had operation on my neck and immediatly the majority of pain is gone and no more dizziness, balance is good, memory is better than in years, bones are building, normal movments now

    Before this Docs were telling me it was old age or fibromiagla

    Oh dear, sorry about your fall. Be oh so careful. I fell and did a number on my wrist this past fall and still am doing p.t. to get my hand stronger. Hope you get good results from your test and all with the lymph nodes turns out okay for you.

    It sounds like a bad fall. It gets so icy here so I am constantly worried about falling. I suspect I have osteoporosis so I know I would break something. My mom and four of her 5 siblings have osteoporosis so I need to get tested.
