[Debate] The general chat thread

Good news. It’s something called costrochindritis. It’s basically a músculo-skeleton inflamation, but my heart itself is okay.

Gonna be monitoring it closely. The doctor discussed doing an X-ray just to be sure, but for the time being, it looks like my heart itself is okay.

Geebus, glad it's not heart problems darth, I've seen first hand what it can do to someone (my grandfather has stints near his heart because of heart problems).

though the treatments from it have gotten way better.

you know that actually put you in suspended animation for open heart surgeries now?
insane!

Yep, it was altogether a very scary experience. I was worried I would end up in the hospital and was trying to think positively. Luckily I'm okay. The pain won't go away, but I don't have anything to be terribly worried about (presumably as long as the scans come back okay).

Well there are messages from you: Don't shock us !! But luckily not your heart. But still spare you a little, and I will annoy you less with ideas and questions

I'm just glad I don't need heart surgery. It's a plus in my book.

It's less bad than you think. I wouldn't wish it on anybody mind you but modern heart surgery as done here in the states is incredibly advanced. They put you in a short term suspended animation before making their repairs and can do things incredibly precise.

h*** about a decade ago they 3D printed a heart using a cellular printer and stem cells, made each component piece by piece on a biodegradable framework, assembling it as they went. Then installed the new heart and it worked without problems. Afaik the kid has had no complications.

If that's a measurement of where we are in medical technology I wouldn't worry nearly as much.

It's still an incredibly scary thing. The chances of survival would be extremely high nowadays, but I would still be incredibly nervous as I went under.

I've only been through one surgery and I was knocked out after a shot, and the last thing I remember was thinking "this shot didn't work, I'm about to be awake during my surgery." The next thing I knew, it was done and I was waking up, and I had no idea. I never remembered the falling asleep itself. I just woke up and it felt like the blink of an eye.

On my heart situation, I almost called 911, but I was worried I wouldn't be able to afford the $1K or so it is to get the ambulance ride. Insurance has ridiculously high deductables, so basically I would have been screwed. So lucky it turned out to be nothing serious.

The chest pains have been better these past few days, but they have been a lot worse today for some reason. Watching them closely for the next couple of weeks just to make sure something else isn't up.

Your health does not wait until next week or longer, so you have to do a little less stress now  Undecided

Xanax - dangerous emotional anesthesia for the stressed, so why take medication? The body is designed to deal with stress

I've got some gray hairs on my head already. Stress can take a toll. Finna

That said, stress is good up until a certain extent. It pushes us forward.
