I am sure I carried symptoms of P D for some years before but in November 20010 I received an aortic valve replacement type ' C-E Perimount Pericardial Bioprosthesis model 2900 23mm AORTIC ' to give it's full details.
Prior to this operation ( aged 68yrs) I had been a fitness freak and I still run regularly now. The replacement vavle functions perfectly. But it was a long hard slog to recovery.
But the operation took longer than usual . So I was on the life support machine for too long ? Particles floating around in these machines is another story.
Please note I have no medical qualifications.
But it is documented that too long on these machines (, although it may save life ) can be detremental to the brain ! ( thats caused by all the detrious floating arround as a result of poor fltration ) Firstly the Pituitary gland does most of the hard work, it controls the system which produces Seratonin and other functions including ' production of Dopamine'
So did this lfe saving operation trigger my PD ? Mike who can't sleep.
