Was your appointment at Nuffield Health Newcastle upon Tyne Hospital?


What I liked: "Mr Siddique is a first class surgeon second to none. Had my second ankle replacement within last 9 months and fully confident it will be as successful as the first. Pain free after 6 months! Words alone cannot adequately convey my thanks and admiration to him for giving me my life back. Awesome!"

Could improve: "Private health care costs need reviewing. My procedure on both occasions resulted in a 2 night stay which apparently is the norm but was charged for 5 nights. No refund and no negotiation. Surgeon and anaesthetist fees less than 10% of overall costs in 2016 and even less in 2017! Cannot be justified."

I went for: Total ankle replacement

What I liked: "Mr Kramer was extremely polite and listened to my history. He explained his thought processes very clearly and discussed the care pathway fully. He included my husband in the discussions, which was helpful. I have confidence in this clinician already!"

Could improve: "The training of the venepuncturists; the lady was very nice but was not cognisant of the protocols for taking blood samples (tube colours etc.) If I were an anxious patient she would have made me more nervous. I am a healthcare professional myself, so it was not an issue for me personally!"

I went for: an initial consultation

What I liked: "I liked the way that Mr Wilson greeted me, very polite, listened to everything with interest and made me feel comfortable as I explained about my daughter's health. Answered all my questions. I left feeling that my daughter would be in safe hands."

Could improve: "I don't feel there is anything to be improved."

I went for: tonsils

Frequent masturbation can desensitise the penis, making ejaculation during intercourse more difficult. If he avoids masturbating this problem is likely to resolve. Also trying different sexual positions can prove helpful

As you probably might have already gleaned from your internet searches (assuming that you had already done this) a Pneumomediastinum is not common.

It occurs on a background of another clinical diagnosis, either in the lung (such as an acute asthma attack or an interstitial lung disease) or within the Oesophagus (Esophagus if you are from the USA). With the latter there is very often a history of retching or vomiting that predates the occurrence of the Pneumomediastinum.

Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum is rarer still. This implies that the Pneumomediastinum occurred without any apparent recognised (or pre-existing) cause.

It would be helpful for you to have a consultation with a Respiratory Physician or Pulmolnologist close to where you live. You would need a complete respiratory work up after you have recovered from your Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum. The evaluation would assist your doctor with the evidence to base any advise that is offered.
