Simptome van Endocarditis

Hallo Doc,

Ek het 'n matige Mitrale Valve Prolapse. Ek was gister na my Tandarts vir 'n kroon-inplanting (ons het 16/03/07 die voorbereiding gedoen en ek het daardie dag 4x antibiotika's geneem). Ek het verlede week geskakel en hulle het gesê dis nie nodig om weer antibiotika's te neem nie aangesien sy nie bloeding gaan versoorsaak nie. Daar het egter iets fout gegaan gister met een van die penne en my mond het gebloei (sy het 'n rukkie lank gesukkel om dit te stop).

Ek het gister-aand nie baie lekker gevoel nie en vandag is ek lyfseer, effe koorsig. Ek het ook 'n seer keel - kan netsowel begin van verkoue wees.

Ek het al so baie gehoor van die "Endocarditis" en het 'n vrees dat ek dit sal ontwikkel.

Wat is die vooraf-tekens van die infeksie? hoe lank na die prosedure sal ek simptome kry? hoe stel 'n mens vas of dit 'n onskuldige seer keel/verkoue is of die infeksie?

Sal enige raad verwelkom.

Hallo Cornel
drink liewer antibiotika voorkomend asb. Kry 'n voorskrif by jou GP as jy nie in die huis het nie?

Hi Anxious.

Thanks. Did u get the Travel socks that Doc suggested? That might help in the meantime.... your feet-swelling still remains a mystery... I know my mom’s feet swells some times, but she has a lot of heart-related problems (Ischemic heart disease, high Cholesterol, stents, diabetes) and the Specialist told her that it can be heart-related or diabetes? and it goes away the same way that it had appeared.

I am one of those people: if a bird flies by and crap on someone’s head, it'll be mine :) maybe 'cause God thinks I can handle all of this. I think I'm rather having the flu than the I.E.

Luckily I only work till 12h00 on Fridays, so I’m almost going home and then I’ll get Doc’s answer on Monday and I’m sure by then I’ll be fine…

Enjoy your weekend! take care.

Hi Cornel

Sorry to hear about more troubles you are having! I am sure you will be glad to have HeartDoc back - but CD really does a good job in offering to answer all questions about all topics and tells you if you need further specialist advice etc. about your problem!

I am putting my foot/feet problem on hold for the moment until my gp gets back - he is away for the Pass Over and Easter weekend - the whole of next week - from 1/4 - and I am due to go for my blood test anyway the week he gets back so I am going on 14/4 and will see what happens then. He has to monitor it and report to my specialist physician anyway. My right foot remains sore - why I wouldn't know!

Enjoy the weekend - hope you feel better soon and get these irritating problems sorted out soon!
