I am a almost 67 yr. old female, with Post Polio Syndrome. In the past year, I have noticed that I require a lot of sleep. I have had my physical from my heart doctor and family doctor, and all is well. My only theory is that I am very active, and then it catches up with me, and the motor neurons are continuing to be over used and it is my body telling me to really take it easy. I have no prior notice that my body is going to have a meltdown. I can easily sleep 10-12 hrs. per night. I am a night person, so if i go to bed at 11:00, I will sleep to 11:00 AM. I don’t feel bad, just that I have to sleep and rest.

Post Polio Syndrome is a chronic condition that affects those infected with polio – often many years after the initial infection. Patients with Post Polio Syndrome experience gradually progressive muscle weakness, muscle atrophy, and fatigue. Researchers don’t know the exact mechanism of the condition but believe it to be very slowly progressive in a step-wise . . . → Read More: I am a almost 67 yr. old female, with Post Polio Syndrome.

I have brownish sperm. Is this normal?

Human semen is a composition of fluids. The majority of semen, 65%, is composed of seminal plasma and mucus. 10% of semen is composed of sperm produced in the male testes and the remaining 25% of semen is composed of prostatic fluids.

Normal semen is milky white but a number of factors can affect the . . . → Read More: I have brownish sperm. Is this normal?

I have a TV hysterectomy and removal of L ovary and tube over a year ago, suddenly I have been having fairly severe low abd. pain and some intermitten light bleeding. I am not sure wheter or not this is something that I should be very concerned with.

With your surgery being over a year ago, any bleeding or spotting is considered abnormal. There is a broad differential for the conditions that could cause bleeding. Regardless, you should be evaulated immediated by your primary care physician, surgeon, or gynecologist. A physical exam is warranted to determine the cause of the bleeding. Additionally, radiographic . . . → Read More: I have a TV hysterectomy and removal of L ovary and tube over a year ago, suddenly I have been having fairly severe low abd. pain and some intermitten light bleeding.

My father went to the doctor over a week ago for severe constipation. They did an endoscopy and the results stated colon cancer in transverse and descending colon. Then they did a colonoscopy and no cancer was found. After the colonoscopy my father developed ascites. He now also has stage 3 kidney damage. They did find a mass outside of his gi tract but inside of the abdominal cavity. They did a core biopsy and they are now calling it lymphatic cancer. He is continuing to fill up with fluid in his abdomen and every other day they have drained off 2200 cc’s of fluid. Today they said they will not be draining off any more fluid and instead they want to start chemo tommarrow. His VS are starting to look bad and one minute they are telling us that the colon cancer has moved to the liver and the next that he will be cured in a couple of days. They did some sort of blood test for cancer and it was very high. What else should we do? I do not think he will be with us much longer.

Your father’s prognosis depends on the type of cancer he has as well as the staging of the cancer. Colon cancer is stratified from Stage 0 to Stage IV. Stage 0 cancer is the earliest detectible form of cancer and it is limited to the most inner layer of the colon. Stage IV cancer is . . . → Read More: My father went to the doctor over a week ago for severe constipation.

I have been sick for quite some time with stomach problems and lung problems. I recently had a D Dimer done which resaults were 2.0 as well on a ct scan they found There is atelectasis in the lingula anterolaterally and inferiorly. Atelectasis versus scarring is seen in the midaspect of the lung bases. There is a tiny, non calcified nodule in the left major fissure measuring 0.4 cm in diameter. That was directly from the resaults. Quite a few family members including aunts uncles and mother had blood clots in their lungs. As well my grandfather passed of lung cancer when I was about 12 years old. Is there any advice you can give me? I have tried getting answers from my primary who just blows me off stating I have mood problems (which they said I had right after the lose of my 25 day old son so yes I would be majorly depressed.) I have tried getting answers for a while now with no real answers just that it is in my head because “I have Depression due to the lose of my son.” This same doctor tried telling me that all my lower left abdominal pain was from a cyst on my overy which I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis by a different Dr who ordered a colonoskopy(spelling?) My dr wanted me to cancel that procedure which I am not going to because I feel that procedure is nessasary to find the full cause of my stomach pain but my dr perscribed 2 antibiotics because my wbc was elevated. (he said that was caused because of diverticulitis yet according to him I dont have that) I know it dont make since. Also when I eat certion foods my stomach pain gets worse.

It appears as if you have two major issues: family history of pulmonary emboli (blood clots in the lungs) and recurrent gastrointestinal pains.

A family history of pulmonary emboli can mean there is either a family history of cancer or a genetic component that is causing the blood to be hypercoagulable (easier to form clots). . . . → Read More: I have been sick for quite some time with stomach problems and lung problems.
