corina Posted August 7, 2004 Report Share Posted August 7, 2004 I'm almost sure (and so is my cardio and family doctor) that my POTS came directly after surgery. In july 2000 we went on family holiday to Hungary and when skating I fell and broke the os coccygis (sorry don't know the english word for it). After a year in which I got about 15 or 16 injections to stop the pain the bone still hurted very much, I couldn't sit and had surgery where they toke it off. DImmediately after srgery I felt very bad was very sick, throwing up, severe headache and problems with bp and heartrate. Lateron, my physicaltherapist send me to our familydoctor who send to the cardio and the whole POTS-thing started. It took them 2 and a half year to discover the POTS (my family doctor had never heard of it). Although I'm trying a lot of different meds right now but I'm still getting worse, since a year in a wheelchair, not able to drive etc. etc. Is anyone else having POTS because of surgery? (I'm sorry for the length of this post). I wonder if I'm ever getting (just a little?) better. Corina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
