MRI reads severed tendon all from surgical hospital I'm venting



  • What drug caused the seizure? Many times when people have seizures, they are at risk of injury to themselves. They might have been trying to keep you from falling, or turning you on your side. This is done as a precaution, so that if you begin vomiting you will not aspirate stomach contents in your lungs. So, maybe in their attempt to save your life, your arm may have been in just the right position for the tendon to tear. Of course, it could have been something entirely different. Just wanted to provide you with some info of what I've seen in the past.

    Take care,


  • I did not have a seizure!! I was convusling as they said. I came out of surgery fine went to med surg area and was in pain. The Dr. who did my surgery never orderd the medicine I told him works for me well. THey used meds (I do not know what all they gave me until I get the records) and after the nurse injected the meds in my iv than I started convulsing. They did tho say it was not a seizure.My take is the combo of meds the nurse gave me did not agree with me. It had to be or the meds that were given to me by the sleep Doc and than the meds nurse gave me did not agree. All I know is I am sick over all this. This whold weekend has been lots of pain I have to only use button up tops because I cant get my arm in pull overs way to painful. THis STINKS!!! I wish I was going to work tomorrow. And this pain is so great worse than my back pain, ontop of all that my neck which already needs to get the 3level fusion done is just killing me most likly due to the stress of the shoulder tendon. I am using ice and heat the heat feels good that is what i am using right now. You guys Are awsome for helping with all this. I pray all of you have a great evening.

  • Convulsions are seizures. The words are used interchangably.
