I just want to know if you have another diagnoses or had those symptoms but there in another group can you respond. Because so many of us have more than one Illness and either want to know more or want to give experiences you went through

Hi Charlie,
I encourage you to follow the Lung Health group https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/lung-conditions/ and introduce yourself to members there.

Is there a group for liver hemangioma or liver resection. That is why I’m coming to Mayo in a couple weeks and would like to connect with people who have had the surgery.

Colleen is there a group on liver disease because l was going under digestive disease but l am seeing you have so many different groups so l didn’t know where that fit?

Liver discussions are found in the Digestive Health group: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/digestive-gastrointestinal-problems/
You were correct to post there. 🙂

Hi @phillrachel, I recommend that you start a new discussion about liver hemangioma in the Digestive Health group. We will help connect you with others. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/digestive-gastrointestinal-problems/

I still could not figure out how to start a new group. Only how to find existing groups. I want to start a group about hyponatremia.

Hi @kibwezi
You can start a new discussion about Hyponatremia in the Endocrine System group https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/diabetes-and-endocrine-problems/

We have several members talking about hyponatremia and it would be good to bring them all together in one discussion. As the activity and membership of that discussion grows, we will be able to open a dedicated group.

Hi Liz @liz223

I wasn’t sure if anyone had responded to your question about finding sciatica discussions. There are many people who have posted about sciatica.

If you go up to the top of your screen you will see a search Icon (it looks like a magnifying glass),click on the icon and then a box will appear, then type in the word “sciatica” in the box, then hit “enter” and all of the posts that mention sciatica will come up and you can look at each one.

When I did that I saw sciatica listed under Chronic Pain, as well as Scoliosis, etc. You can then reply and respond to all of the posts.
Here is the link to the search, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/search/?search=sciatica

@rinstaffordaz , you were correct in posting in the Digestive Health group about gut issues, such as diarrhea and bloating. Here are a few discussions to take part in:
– Gut problems https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/gut-problems/
– I am a relatively healthy person with a problem “bloated belly” https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/i-am-a-relatively-healthy-person-with-a-problem-bloated-belly-my/

I hope you’ll also register for the online expert Video Q&A about Scleroderma on November 15. See more details here:
