I’m back, friends!
I’m noticing that many of you guys are posting concerns about your own physical health or for others. I do believe that physical health is just as important as mental health. I have created a ‘check-in’ post where you can post about your physical health-related issues as well as concerns about it.
So, how are you guys doing?
- I’m doing well all the time.
- I’m doing mostly well.
- I have bad and good days.
- I have more bad days than good days.
- I’m not doing well all the time.
Feel free to share your thoughts about physical health and please let me how you are doing well in terms of your physical health.
For those wanting updates- I’m doing well. I’m struggling a little when I’m going down the stairs. My mother says I’m a humanoid penguin, whatever that means. But otherwise, no major health problems!
I’m incredibly unfit. But surprisingly healthy other than that.
My heath is spotty. I have several autoimmune disorders and bad arthritis. It’s been better lately.
Physically I’m ok, I’m sure I could use more exercise, but that’s common.
It’s better than it should be given that I’m very obese, which isn’t saying much. Cholesterol - ok,blood pressure- ok, liver functioning -ok, kidney functioning -excellent, water retention in ankles and legs due to sedentary lifestyle, low folic acid level, lower back aches if I walk any distance(probably weight related).
I’m overweight and unfit but my health is pretty good other than high blood glucose numbers and high lipid counts.
I’m hanging in there.
İ have herniated disc and overweight. But not serious case. İf i give weight i will be ok i guess
I am in poor health. And a dr that doesn’t seem to care doesn’t make things any easier. But I keep on keeping on.
My mental health also slides down due to my poor health.
I’ll state what’s improved…
I walk without a brace, now. I have only a slight limp.
I’ve gained 8 pounds of like the 123 I lost rapidly.
I’m having a colonoscopy soon.
I’m scheduled for iron infusions.
I’m scheduled for my new diabetes med check, mammogram, and yearly physical.
I’m scheduled for follow up with my kidney doc.
I’m on 2 week follow up appts with my pdoc.
Wow. That sounds like a lot of appts- sorry to hear that you are not feeling well but good to hear that you have a treatment plan now for your conditions. I saw my doctor last week.
My knees have been on fire lately…it’s really painful.
I cough til I vomit, every morning.
scacia, syncope, and smoke too much, and sit too long.
I have osteoporosis and arthritis and mostly stiff when I get up in the mornings and sit for to long. Have a bad weakness in my hip and leg
Got a bad back atm but other then that I’m quite alright. Should loose some more weight and start some jogging though.
How did all your tests go?
Good to have them.
My health is pretty good but I could have cancer.
I have abnormal bleeding after menopause and heard that I have it.
I had a colposcopy ,biopsy, hystoscopy yesterday and get results in a couple of weeks.
I want to remove my uterus either which way.
I get a bit of a saw neck sometimes and feel tied up in invisible restraints kind of.
I have genital herpes and hpv but otherwise I’m in good health apart from those things.
Hope I don’t have cancer.
Even if I don’t I still want to remove my uterus as it may only cause me problems and drama now.
Thankful to have had it though.
I’ve had a complete hysterectomy. You DO NOT want that pain. I was on a pain pump for 2 days and pills for weeks. I can and have experienced severe pain.
Why do you want surgery?
I had ovarian cancer and had my ovaries and tubes removed.
It was very painful and I now have a scar up my whole stomach.
I have hpv and am a high risk for getting cancer and I have abnormal bleeding and drama and my uterus will only cause me problems now.
I just had a colposcopy ,hystoscopy and biopsy yesterday a to see if I have cancer.
I get my results in two weeks approximately.
I know it’s a painful procedure but I am such a high risk for cancer there and I just don’t want those problems and have been supported by doctors to have my uterus removed.
Hopefully I have not got cancer but even if I don’t I still want to remove it to lessen my chances and to stop abnormal bleeding etc
Mostly good. I suffer from daily migraines and generalized arthritis but that is all.
Pretty much okay except I have severe asthma
I’m a little over weight, my kidney function is questionable, I have very bad migraines, I have asthma and COPD, I have heart problems and a pacemaker, my cholesterol is borderline, my triglycerides are too high, and my vision is very bad without glasses.
Other than that, I’m great!
blood pressure- ok for my age
kidney functioning - good
liver functioning - ok
cholesterol - ok
low folic acid - am taking a 400 mcg tablet each day
lower backache when i walk more than a short distance - probably due to weight
