May 7, 2018 · Sepsis in Intensive Care (ICU)

I had sepsis from a perforated colon after a colonoscopy. I refused to have surgery every day she came in and mentioned it. I had a tube in stomach with a drainage bag. I had 2 high powered antibiotics running intravenously 24 hrs a day for 7 days. Had cat scans to monitor the infection. Was sent home with the stomach tube which was removed a couple weeks later. Was sent home with 2 oral antibiotics. It took 4to 6 weeks to get well and told me I could still have to have surgery if it perforated again. So far I have been fine and that was 4years ago.

Feb 16, 2018 · Erosive oral lichen planus in Autoimmune Diseases

I went to Rochester over 30 years ago to a dermatologist and had a biopsy of my tongue. The diagnosis was Lichun Planus. I had to have blood work done and then was put on a pill called Dapsone. I was told it was used for Leprosy. Had to have frequent blood counts. Don’t remember how long I took it. Several weeks I think. I have been in remission now for many years. There is another rare condition called Bechets disease that can cause vaginal and oral ulcers. Actually as a child I remember being taken to doctor and having them burned out with silver nitrate sticks. As an adult had a series of 3 smallpox vacinne given as a shot. It worked for a year and then would go back for another shot. It worked great for 4 years until they said the FAA banned it and they couldn’t get the vaccine anymore. That was when I was sent to Rochester. I told the Dr. he had to do something. That should be a good place to go. A Dermatologist for a biopsy. Hope you get some relief. Elinor
