I Hate Spleens Too

Kim, at Emergiblog writes about an experience she had with a sickly spleen. I am rather vigilant with patients who may not have a spleen. They get sick so quickly. So any patients who has had abdominal surgery get extra attention coming their way.

An interesting trend I noticed. Most patients don't know if they've had their spleen removed during their old surgery. I usually make it a priority to know what vital organs I no longer have, I think you should adopt this sage advice. Oh, and good nurses aren't made that way by studying at home...and...you really do have to have at least a highschool diploma:

Be a nurse and make good money....why gosh it never occurred to me to be a nurse until I picked up these matches!

Kim has more.

Lack of spleen can lead to OPSI (Overwhelming Post-Spleenectomy Infection), an otherwise normal infection, typically bacterial, spins out of control occasionally in any patient without a spleen. You may learn more about it by searching these terms. Good luck.

Most time it’s good to share problem. WHO KNOWS?? My names are Aylen Melsin I suffered Adhesion that damaged my uterus and this is really what I think you should understand. I finally was able to conceive a child of my own after 7 years without any issue. This really was the worst thing ever. It was a miracle that indeed shocked me and my husband. Because I was left with no option but to use a Herbal Health Concoction that was prepared from Roots Herbs to help the Immune. I got to find out a solution through online search and I talked to the direct source about my problem. His name is Ahiga and he told me how some necessary few herbs will be useful to women’s health, to cure Fibroid, tubes blockage recovery, So I gave him a chance to do what knows best. He sent the Herbs to me and gave simple instruction on method of use. After few weeks of usage I began to feel dizzy, vomiting, tender breast, a friend of mine told me all this are sings of pregnancy. I went for check up behold I was confirmed pregnant. I'm glad God did this with the Roots Herbs of Ahiga. You can get in-touch with Ahiga via Email (ahigahealing@ yahoo. com) really just felt like dropping this, not for all but for those who want to start having children of their own.
