Neurosurgeon doesn't want to operate yet...but I kind of do. [27F]

2023.03.25 01:44 samanthacourtney Neurosurgeon doesn't want to operate yet...but I kind of do. [27F]

27F, in relatively good shape, social drinker. You can see my post history for a more detailed backstory, but long story short:
I had follow up imaging done in January for a stroke I had in November (cause of the stroke unknown, but doctors are speculating the cause was RCVS, or a complication from RSV, since those are consistent with the scattered hemorrhaging I had), and the follow up imaging flagged a small aneurysm. 4mm on my "left cavernous/supraclinoid junction". In retrospect, this was visible on my earlier scans in November, but the radiologists then didn't flag it, for whatever reason.
I sought a second opinion from a university research hospital in my city, Northwestern, and had an “advanced aneurysm MRI” (increased magnetism for higher res) done 2 weeks ago. The results from this MRI revealed a second aneurysm. 3x3 mm aneurysm in the “basilar tip”. The results note that this looks like it was actually visible in the earlier imaging I had done in November at the other hospital, but the radiologists there didn’t flag it. My neurosurgeon's assistant emailed me about these results, and noted that the risk posed by this 2nd aneurysm is a bit higher than the risk posed by the 1st aneurysm (google searches seem to put the 5 year risk of rupture for aneurysm #1 at about .4%, vs. somewhere between .9% and 2.5% for aneurysm #2), but that overall, the neurosurgeon thinks it's still low risk.
My neurosurgeon brought up my case at the vascular departmental conference that was held earlier today, to get a consensus on how to proceed in my case. His assistant emailed me back a couple of hours ago with their recommendations - which apparently, is still to just "wait and see", and get another MRA done in 6 months.
Honestly, I'm not psyched about this. I don't know if the daily anxiety involved in the "wait and see" approach would work for me, and frankly, a .9% change of rupture in the next 5 years is still too high for my liking. On top of that, most information I can find online seems to indicate that having multiple aneurysms also increases your overall risk of rupture. So the true risk is likely even higher than that.
I'm not sure how to approach this though. I like my neurosurgeon, and don't want to make him feel like I'm stepping on his toes or anything, if his professional opinion is that waiting is better. And if the risk of undergoing surgery right now his higher than the risk of rupture, it probably makes sense to wait...but if the risk is more of a toss up, I'd honestly be more comfortable just intervening now and getting surgery done (which in my case, would be endovascular)
Would love to hear anyone's thoughts. Should I talk to my neurosurgeon and push for surgery? Or maybe seek out a 3rd opinion? (I'll be in New York this summer, so could maybe try to see someone at NYU Langone which I know is highly regarded for neurology) Or just suck it up and wait and monitor?

2023.03.21 04:48 Wayflo FTM/N Top Surgery, Radical Reduction

Hey everyone! Just thought that I should share my top surgery experience with the community!! :) Specifically the Anchor-T method ( Inverted-T, Radical Reduction). There aren't many post in this procedure!
My surgery took place in, New York (NYU Langone) with, Dr. Alexes Hazen. The experience was AMAZING! I love my results!! To give context, I started out with a size DD 34 and was completely hopeless that my only option would be to have a double incision. I thought that was what I wanted for years, but I became patient in my transition after my first top surgery appointment was CANCELLED. This was during covid and allowed me the time for growth and healing.
Later on, I found out that this wasn't what I wanted and I wasn't willing to give up my sensitivity. My surgeon was going to be Dr. Bluebond-langer. Her technique is great but she wasn't righr for me in the end. I searched months for other surgeons and different ways that I can have top surgery. That's when I found out about a radical reduction. I'm going to be completely honest, they do leave a little bit of breast tissue behind. Factors that contribute to how small a willing surgeon can get you depends on the width and shape of your size. People with the same cup sizes can have different outcomes. I cannot stress it enough to, KEEP THIS IN MIND!!
I was crushed and absolutely devastated upon finding out that my chest wouldn't look the same as another user that I used as a reference (with permission). We were the same size too. Please take your time and make a list of what exactly you want out of this surgery. DO NOT compare your body to other people!! This was a valuable lesson I had to learn!! It forced me to get rid of old cis-het expectations for how trans bodies should look. I also learned that I prioritized nipple sensitivity (which isn't guaranteed, take time to decide if you want to take that risk. Don't rush!), flatness, evenness, areola size, and the last thing was most shocking to me... Male chest reconstruction. Despite years of making this my ultimate goal, I let it go and accepted the capabilities of what my body can do and decided to work with it. What also helped was knowing that people who are amab have breast tissue. Sure it's not as developed, but why am I beating myself up for it?
My chest are nothing like how thet looked before, they're significantly smallr and flatter. It's close to an A-small B. They'll get smaller after the swelling goes down as well, so in the end I made the best decision for me and my goals. It was 💯 WORTH IT!
Right now I am only a few hours post-op (started at 8:00 AM, 3/20/2023). Recovery is going well and the pain is minor, keep in mind that everyone's body is different so be patient with yourself, no matter which surgery method you decide on! I will post some pictures a little later. The pictures included are pre-op, to the morning of when they marked me, and a post-op pic as soon as I got home.
My insurance covered my surgery too (Amida Care). It's a special needs plan for Transgender and people living with HIV, THEY WILL CATER TO YOU AND YOUR NEEDS!! If you can, try to apply for it!
I will keep you updated, hope this post was helpfu! 😄

Please share your experiences (the good, the bad and the ugly!) If you have specific recommendations, I’m all ears. RMA barely did any testing prior to IVF and after only 3 embryos created (2 euploid that resulted in MC) I am DEFINITELY making a switch
Thank you group ❤️

2023.03.17 23:52 manateefourmation In hospital - CT Scan shows Acute pan colitis

I was first diagnosed with mild to moderate ulcerative proctitis - lower 20 cm - about 25 years ago. I have had colonoscopies every other year since, my last in Feb. 2020. Each time, same diagnosis. I’ve been treated with mesalamine, going from 2.4 to 4.8 grams depending if I was active or in remission.
Fast forward to Tuesday night this week, when I started non-stop runs to the bath room with loose stool. Wednesday the same with massive cramping. Thursday morning I had just pure loose red blood. I spoke to my GI who suggested I go to NYU Langone (I’m in NYC) because they have one of the best IBD departments and he suspected given the symptoms this might be an infection and not my typical colitis.
That was yesterday. Late yesterday, they took blood, a stool sample and performed a CT Scan with contrast. The bloodwork came back normal except for a high sed rate and inflammatory markers. Nothing I hadn’t seen before. I actually was feeling better by the afternoon. Pain was gone and not running.
The stool sample came back negative for a panel of tested bacterial and viral infections. And then come the CT Scan with showed findings consistent with “acute moderate to severe pan colitis.”
I was admitted he have been started on IV steroids. Just ending my first day of them. Tomorrow they are doing a sigmoidoscopy which they claim they will get through my transverse colon. They said a sigmoid is protocol and not a colonoscopy - which seems a bit strange.
Today, one of the senior attending physicians in the IBD team came to talk to me and said that they will do 3 days of steroids and if that doesn’t work, they will keep me hear and do about a week of twice a day remicade infusions. If that doesn’t work, “worst case is colectomy.” She casually talked colectomy like it’s a near term option.
I feel fine. I have no fever. No fatigue. I truly feel like I could work out. But this CT Scan sounds dire. And the attending’s words were worse. I’m freaking out to say the least.
Thoughts. Thank you!

Suffering from Depression? Help us find new treatments!
What is SGLT2-MDD?
This is an in-person research study that aims to understand the effect of empagliflozin, a medication part of the class of sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, in depression. Since this medication simulates the metabolic effects of the “ketogenic diet,” which some studies suggest improves mood, this study will also help us understand how problems with mood might relate to how the brain uses energy.

2023.03.17 18:33 PrimeJedi Been trying to get treatment for over a year, they either don't treat adults or don't accept my insurance. help I'm close to losing my career :(

I'm a 19 year old composer, and it's what I absolutely love to do the most. But I just have not been able to work at even half of what I need to be doing. I've dealt with adhd all my life, but its been getting worse and worse as I've gotten older.
I saw a psychiatrist and a therapist through an app called Amwell (I did it online as I'm on chemotherapy, and it was during the pandemic so it was very dangerous), and they both screened me, and I was diagnosed with ADHD combined type. My psychiatrist said he thought a stimulant would be life changing, but he can't presribe controlled substances as he's online.
I saw my primary care doctor through NYU langone (NYC), and she said "I usually don't prescribe medication" so she referred me to a phone number to call. Which is alright, but the number I called said they didn't even do ADHD treatment. Then THAT number gave me like 4 different numbers, all of which I called, and all of which either don't accept my insurance (Cigna), or said they treat pediatric adhd but not adult adhd for some reason
And take into account this is all very hard to keep up with as even the most basic tasks take me a long time now. It can take an hour+ just for me to get basic food or go walk my dog.
I messaged my old neurologist to help me find a doctor to do neurocognitive testing, and it's been days without a response. And she's like the 3rd or 4th person who's promised to get back to me with a referral and never responded.
Does anyone know where tf I can get treatment? I can't go to a place without insurance unless it's very cheap, as I'm already practically broke paying for chemo treatment. I'm so damn close to losing my career that I've worked for since I was 14, I feel freaking broken and like giving up.

2023.03.16 06:50 MasterLink123K Faculty research work in Graphs/Modeling of Networks, Data Science?

Hi NYU! I am a student who just got admitted to a NYU Courant summer research program. I have no personal connections that is familiar with the applied math faculty here, so I wanted to ask some current math/CS students to better understand faculty that do research related to my area.
My interests are broadly in graph algorithms, modeling of networks, and machine learning, bonus if there are applications to healthcare/medicine. Feel free to DM me if you prefer that than public posting, I could really use some help to shortlist the sea of faculty here! Thank you so much in advanced!
PS. Not restricted to Courant, am looking at Tandem and Langon researchers too

2023.03.13 16:09 Silly-Chemistry-730 Clinical research assistant role question

Hey guys!
I am a Canadian citizen who has been studying (undergrad and post grad) and now working in the US on post completion OPT.
My post completion OPT is up in 6 weeks and my current role is not eligible under any TN category. I am a pre-medical student applying to medical school this year and believe that a clinical research assistant role would qualify for a TN visa. I am currently applying to research assistant roles now.
I understand the role has to be with a post-secondary institution but does this include large medical centers affiliated with post secondary institutions (ex im working under a PI at NYU medical school but also associated with NYU Langone health system)?
This is pretty specific but I live in NYC and most the hospitals are associated with a post secondary institutions (ex. columbia, Cornell, NYU, Icahn, Hofstra) but know the specifications may be more nuanced then this.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

2023.03.12 15:40 No_Dig1868 The newes eye surgery

New Eye Surgery Holds Promise for Correcting Nearsightedness
The SMILE eye procedure is similar to LASIK in being less invasive, says one doctor.

SMILE procedure.Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., 2016 / Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., 2016
June 1, 2017, 3:17 AM +0430 / Updated June 1, 2017, 3:17 AM +0430
By Parminder Deo and Jacqueline Paulis, M.D.
Cleveland resident Tina Noel struggled with glasses and contacts for most of her life. The 44-year-old has been living a blurry and cloudy life as her aging eyes have progressively become drier due to an autoimmune condition.
“I’m very limited to what I can wear anymore,” says Noel. “I can't wear my contacts anymore because my eyes are just progressively getting drier. I feel my eyes get so tired, I can be driving and my eyes just want to shut when I'm wearing my glasses.”

Lasik Alternative Approved by the FDA
The Food and Drug Administration in September approved a new laser eye procedure known as Small Incision Lenticule Extraction, or SMILE. Noel's doctor recommended giving it a try.
The procedure employs a laser, similar to the one used in LASIK, to remove a small piece of the cornea to reshape the eye. Many people with corneal changes that excluded them from LASIK could now be eligible for this new surgical option.
Noel's ophthalmologist, Dr. Ronald Krueger of the Cleveland Clinic, said the SMILE procedure is all about being minimally invasive.
“I often say that SMILE is like a laparoscopic LASIK because it’s making a smaller incision,” Krueger told NBC News.
The new laser procedure is designed to treat nearsightedness in patients aged 22 and older. The price tag is roughly $5,000 and is not covered by insurance.
Dr. Ilyse Haberman, assistant professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at NYU Langone Medical Center, says that, outside of the U.S., SMILE can correct astigmatism and is being further developed to fix farsightedness. But for patients in the U.S., only very specific candidates can get the SMILE procedur

the only other providers in my network are Jared Liebman and Melissa Johnson who have great buttonhole results but they’re both out of state.

2023.03.10 01:01 PrimeJedi Was Put in an unfortunate situation and am very upset

I have severe rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia, and am on chemo. In addition to having a pacemaker. I live in NYC and have for almost 4 years, but the past month or so is the first time I've actually been able to be out of my house and go anywhere besides doctor appointments
However, I'm 19. I've been sick and unable to really leave my house besides walking my dogs and going to doctor appointments since I was 15. Due to this, I haven't been able to go and get my ID
I had to go in person to meet people I'll be working with for my education, which has been online up to this point. Obviously, the college has security and need ID
I should have had an ID, but I didn't due to my health, and I understand that security has to get some form of identification
What I do not understand is why they decided to berate me and treat me like an idiot. They kept saying "idk how you go anywhere in New York without an ID, how have you not gotten one?"
You know why I don't have one? Because I haven't been able to go fucking anywhere in New York! At all!
Now that I can sorta halfway function sometimes finally, I'm trying to get an ID, driving classes, a bank account, all the things I never got to have. I know these are things i should have, and need to get as quickly as possible, I just haven't freaking been able to
They were berating me like this in front of multiple other people and bystanders, cracking jokes and stuff too. It's humiliating
My teacher told me to tell them I'm with him, but they wouldn't allow it, or listen to him at all. They wouldn't even listen to me saying I've been on fucking chemo and have been completely disabled, trying to explain that I'm not a fucking idiot.
I finally found my medical info through NYU Langone and gave it to them.
Again, needing my ID I understand and am not mad about, but being berated and condescended to because I couldn't get things that healthy people take for granted, just hurts so much. I'm always questioned or treated as lesser than in every goddamn situation because I ended up horribly ill.
Edit: another reason why it upset me was that I have trouble with running late, as I struggle with walking and going up or down stairs, not to mention riding a subway. I finally made it on time, only to be late because I was desperately looking on my phone for identification while being berated by these security guards.
