You might recall previously that I was accused of being some 4 years older than I actually am and some other false beliefs ..... all because people had gone browsing the internet, found some from UK named Martin, and in their beliefs there is only one Martin in UK alike there is only one nasfan in USA!
People told me that the Ukrainian doctors are educated in Soviet style universities, and therefore very good. I am not a doctor, but I don't know if these Ukrainian doctors know what they are doing, starting with the "doctor" I visited in Zaporozhye (that's another story, she was probably a scammer.)
My gf's father has probably the flu. After medicine was given to him, his heart went 180 beats per minute. To me, that is life threatening. When I am in the treadmill, my heartbeat goes up to 130 max. Yet, the doctor visited the home and left, and told them to bring him to the hospital if he grows worse.
On my recent trip to Ukraine with a lady we stayed at a hotel/medical center. They seemed to specialize in things like herbal baths and placing colored stones on your back in some order. There were two types of saunas - the ordinary dry sauna and a Turkish sauna with steam shooting out of nozzles on the floor so hot I burned my feet.
It was supposedly a full medical facility - with doctors of every type - but there really were no patients of any type. Just "doctors" sitting around completely bored. My lady was having a dry skin problem on the side of her face, but she didn't see anything like a dermatologist - instead she saw a cosmetologist (a "doctor" of cosmetics!) who prescribed various types of clay MASKS for her at around $18 a pop. I put my foot down as they kept on getting more expensive and seemed to be increasing every day. At one point they wanted to give her some twelve different masks in a one day series for the low low price of $50 - but since she had had some ten different masks before this, I said it was too much.
Instead they sold her all sorts of homemade soaps and facial cremes in glass mason jars at $20 or so per kilo.
These "doctors" were nothing like western doctors and this was nothing like western medical facility.
This "medical facility" (sanitarium) also supposedly treated problems like high blood presure and heart disease. And it was done almost entirely through diet and different saunas and massage. One guy was staying there (almost the only other "patient" in the whole hotel) for three months to try and bring his blood pressure down.
The following paragraph is a portion of the e-mail I got from the "doctor" in Zaporozhye. It was strange because neither she nor her aunt Tanej was sick.
We are fine, tomorrow I with my aunt Tanej for 10 days shall
leave to receive medical treatment a little in sanatorium in the city of
Truskovets. You can look about this city on интрернету. There there are many
curative sources with useful water which refers to Нафтуся..
Ben2006 WTF?? I could never mistaken Jet for Danny. Not possible. Danny can't spell syntax let alone know what it is in a sentence. Let's see his latest spelling idiocy. Illigal, I have an album Called Illegal Stills, I'm going to Write Stephen tonight and let him know he has to change his album after 20 some years to the correct spelling of illigal.
Mike - I think I know what Ben is relating to.
I also read something a while back were it looked like you inferred that one of the "maybe" Danny's was jet, but it was obviously a typo or something, because I sure as hell knew that you would not make a mistake like that
Your girlfriends father, did his heartbeat return to normal? For the doctor to leave and say bring him to the hospital if it gets worse is not a bad diagnosis.
Obviously his heartbeat returned to normal on its own or he has left this world.
To correct a fast heartbeat requires putting the patient out and shocking the heart back into rhythm. Doctors do not like to do this unless absolutely necessary.
My heart has been shock awake and asleep. Believe me...it is incredibly painful. To wait and see if the heartbeat goes back to normal on its own is not a bad course of action.
He seems to be alright now. I worked for four years as a medic in the military. Whenever tachycardia (high rate of heartbeat) occurs, everyone scrambles to normalize it, definitely in a hospital setting. But, that was a long time ago. Shocking a patient's heart was not as prevalent then, only to shock it to beating again after it stops.
I did look up tachycardia on the internet. It did say it was life threatening. He is alright and I hope he stays that way. Thanks for asking.
I looked over her e-mail in Russian (Yahoo translated). She did not mention shocking the heart. She did mention cardiogram and shots (intravenous or injection, I don't know). I will have to ask her tomorrow when I call her.
