I am currently being housed at Corcoran State Prison in Corcoran California, my CDC # is P06960, my mother has promised to copy my letters so others can be informed. In 2005 While I was at C-SATF, across the street from where I am now, I started bleeding, only then it was coughing up blood, the only thing anyone would tell me or know was I had weak blood vessels in my lungs that were busting all the time, it seemed for no apparent reason. since then I have been diagnosed with A.V.M. (Artillery Vessel Malformation. This means the blood vessels and arteries in my body can bust and bleed at any time. so from 2005 tell the end of 2006, it was happening in my lungs, then in 2007 I started vomiting blood. the Doctors always thought it was gastritis and ulcers. I would vomit once or twice a month, then in 2008 it would occur 4 or 5 times a month. 2009 once or twice a week, Some times it would stop for a couple months then start up and last for 2 or 3 months. this year 2010 has been the worst, it seems at times non stop.
July 1, 2010 the GI Doctor Specialist at San Joaquin Community Hospital in Bakersfield Cal. Dr. Krishawn, finally found over 100 pin size bleeds in my stomach He diagnosed me with A.V.M. a rare bleeding disorder, He said it will continue to get worse over time because I also have Hep-C and those vessels will get weaker and weaker over time, and bleed so bad they won’t be able to contain it. So far they just ooze blood in small amounts, but there are lots of little spider veins or vessels in the stomach, one way I was told might help me is if I take estrgen, but it is not a for sure thing, they hope it might help clot my blood, with not knowing if it will work, and done by trial and error, there is way to many side effects for me to ever consider trying it. or the suggestion of having my stomach removed. either way I am scared and dont know what to do anymore.
now I will allow my mother to continue with my letters, by date, see I have to date my letters now because for some reason my letters seem to get miss placed and never get out to my family at times.
Oh she is posting this on the 19th, my Birthday..
