Anesthesia, Hippocampus & Thyroid…. Aha TBI moment…

Lets see if I can count all the surgeries since 1973… because I can’t tell you about before 1972, when I was getting my head beat on… so lets see if this thought that just came to me is right…

Tonsils… 1973 San Francisco, Army facility….

Childbirth 1974 Sacramento civilian facility….

1977 appendectomy April, Quincy, CA civilian…

1977 June, childbirth same place as Quincy…

1977 tubes tied day after childbirth…

1996 bladder surgery, Wenatchee WA, civilian….

2001 & 2002 Breast reduction, Seattle VA…

2008 bladder Tuscon VA….

2011 leg surgery, El Paso VA….

2018 Recotecell, Queens, Oahu, HI civilian….

2019 eye surgery, Hilo, HI, civilian….

I tried to list every surgery that I can remember, where I was sedated for more than a few minutes… I didn’t count the colonoscopy or bladder exploratory…. they didn’t have the same level of deep sedation as the ones mentioned above…. now what the hell does this have to do with anything…

Okay gang… remember, this is my diary… I don’t exactly have that excellent memory ability like I did as a kid, so, document, document… is what I learned working for the Staff Judge Advocate on Japan… best lesson I got from any job…. back things up with evidence… and make it good evidence….

All the above surgeries were with heavy sedation…. and most of them except the ones on Hawaii…. they stuck a breathing tube down my throat…. and I got to remember the damage they can do, by doing the breathing tube… and it has been found already… or it could be from the strangulation boob incident….

Anyhow… my point… I am sitting here in a robe, socks, pajamas and it’s 75 degrees outside and inside……. and Mike is running around in tank top and shorts… get my meaning….

The hippocampus is something I was reasonably sure had been impacted by the drops off the top bunk bed for a couple years… remember… thicker area in the back of my skull that was found when I was turning 30… and repeated bone scans showed my skull actually continued uptake during that time… it did eventually stop and I have been taking calcium ever since… and the bones have actually been doing the normal stuff, not the healing stuff, my body did, until I was in my early 30’s…

Someone, a health care professional, who saw one of the pictures I use for the blog, showing Margie around 5 years old and I guess to her, I looked malnourished…. I may have been… I found it difficult to eat, swallow and digest food after the TV interview beating… that’s my label for that memory…

I was called skinny weenie, olive oil, and numerous other thin jokes until I became an adult… I even didn’t look pregnant… so it’s a struggle to keep the weight on… which is stable again, finally (ice cream helped)….

I am cold… and the only time I deal with this kind of issue when it’s warm outside and inside…. anesthesia and it’s affect on the hippocampus and enochrine system, I think…….

I have set up my next physical before my next eye surgery and I know the doctor will want to test my thyroid… and I am curious too… are the levels staying consistent… if they are… I should have never been put on Levothyroxine and was being poisioned the last 26 years….

3 thyroid tests and the level does not change… that is what should be required before they put you on thyroid medication…..

Anyhow… It usually takes 72 hours for my body to get the anesthesia out of it and its impact on the brain to go away….

At least I have warm clothes and know why I am cold and not freaked out over imagined issues…

Again it comes down to the fact Freda could have saved me lots of grief, lots of surgeries and lots of issues… by just owning what they did… we could have built on that honesty… instead, she made sure my life has been a living hell, because she thought her secret about Donna and her affairs were not known….

They were never forgotten mother… just not mentioned… we didn’t trash you the way you trashed us….

I am mentioning them now…

I am very curious to talk to a neurologist again….

I Remember… Margie….
