Wait wait… WHERE DID THE BRUISE GO ?!
The video at the end is flipped. You can see her nose ring is on the other side. She was moving her non-port arm in the last clip. Now I can't tell if she's faking the pain or not, but this is hardly evidence of faking if she is.
Holy fuck if I had something in my like that I’d be freaking out.
Its completely normal that the port can feel a little uncomfortable from time to time without any reason but it should’t really prevent your mobility. She most certainly has a very low pain tolerance.
I could be wrong but is she slurring her words when talking about the giveaway?
Dom: It hurts when I do this.
Also Dom: \*Does the thing she says hurts, repetitively\*
No bruising, scar looks pretty well-healed. Even if I believed it hurt as much as she claimed, I'm sure that the best course of action would be to film a video doing the same exact thing you claim is super painful. /s
Using a filter. Don't forget the filter.
Dom: It hurts when I do this!
Dads Everywhere: Then don’t do that.
Omg a miracle
If it hurts when you do that….then don’t do that.🤦🏼♀️common sense is not common with this one🤷🏼♀️
You mean,the foreign object connected to your heart with the healing incision hurts?! Yeah duh, that’s why cancer survivors get them removed as soon as they can.
Just curious, but can someone actually describe what it feels like to have a port? I’ve just seen *so* many spoonies with one but always figured it’s maybe equivalent to like an uncomfortable IV but just... sticking from your chest? Like yeah it’s probably going to be tender for a little bit after surgery but I’ve never seen someone complain SO much about theirs, not even some of our most delicate fragile flower subjects. I wonder if she claims she had a high pain tolerance too lol
I had one. they aren't bad at all. It's like having a very painful sore arem from a covid shot feeling in your neck and chest right after. It takes 3 days to get better. When it gets sore right after having it placed you take tylenol and three days later it is fine. Accessing it hurts a tiny bit...like a pinch. it feels like getting an ear pierced at it's worse. But it really is no big deal and easy to get used to. So much so that I used to do the needle part myself so I could avoid the need for a nurse and thus more freedom. This by the way is unusual. It is nothing to write home about. You can opt for a thinner needle and it then hurts even less. Or put a cream that numbs the area before accessing. Having the port removed completely really does hurt. But, if your an adult you quickly get over that pain.
It’s uncomfortable for about 48 hours but Tylenol can handle it. Once the skin healed, I barely notice mine at all. I was lifting my 35 lb toddler the same day.
sore for a week or so. nothing tylenol can’t handle. and then that’s it. was told i couldn’t lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for a month or so. but it’s just there. no big deal.
Pretty uncomfortable the day after. Sore into the arm for a couple days. Mostly back to normal after a week.
These ports don't hurt as Dom explains. It's ridiculous, but then did we expect anything less?
Yes, the incisions are uncomfortable when the procedure is first done, but a little Tylenol for the first day or so, is recommended and will fix that for ya.
For those of you that are interested in how this is done :
Thanks for sharing!
And yeah I was thinking because she’s so slim of course it’s going to be more prominent and move when she moves her arm.
What a freaking joke. My word. Ports are put in lots of places, most move around to some degree, and they can even flip over and still be accessed. It's been what, a week? Like, give it some damn time. It's sickening that she only "hurts" when it's convenient for her. Really, she makes me nauseous.
“My whole port moves“ 😖
Sickfluencers: who’s paying their medical bills???
This makes me think of that joke:
"Doc it hurts when I go like this!"
"Well stop going like that."
The port she didn't want lol.
I still want to know how she convinced a doctor to do this when she's not even sick.
Its America. Just ask for one
I didn't know it was possible to just ask for it when diabetes patients can't even get their insulin because it's so expensive or others cant afford life saving treatments because they don't have insurance/not good enough insurance coverage. (not American here so I could be wrong)
Can you please make a post somewhere to link to your comment that lists the resources you use to get these prices? This is far from typical and none of the resources I’ve been able to find for people with or without insurance have come anywhere close to prices like this. I’d love to be able to tell people about it! If this information were more accessible it would make it so less people skip refilling their medications due to financial hardship ❤️
Sorry I didn't know this. I'm not American and have watched several documentaries about people without insurance/bad insurance having to pay thousands for a single insulin vial or eternal medical debt for basic medical procedures so I took this as truth. I'm glad to know it's not as terrible as they say in these documentaries.
I worked as a pharmacy tech a few years ago, so I constantly saw what people paid for their medications. I saw people on Medicaid having their insulin covered so it was free to them, of course, but of everyone else I never saw a patient pay less than $40 for insulin. An albuterol inhaler is sometimes covered completely by insurance and free, but without insurance or Medicaid they’re still $23 with goodRX which is kind of like a coupon. Most inhalers cost several hundred dollars though. I’d have to call and go back and forth with the insurance to try to get them to pay but ultimately they almost never did so the patient usually chose not to get the medication.
I’m really glad the person you’re responding to has somehow gotten so lucky, like I’m very happy for them! However, their experience is so far from typical that I am having a hard time believing them, not to be rude or anything. I’m not saying they’re lying, like my hesitancy is my personal issue. That said, I spent months researching and trying to find different programs and coupons and things that might help patients pay for their medication and was unable to find anything like this person describes, especially without insurance. This person is incredibly lucky and not an accurate reflection of american medical costs
This 100%. Yes, if they're on Medicare or Medicaid (which are programs for the elderly, disabled, and in some states those below the poverty line can get Medicaid) those prices would be accurate. Otherwise, those without insurance or with low coverage insurance are looking at large out of pocket costs for meds like insulin and inhalers.
I was hopeful that there was just something I didn’t know, but I knew that had to be the only way
Yeah, I mean unless there's some new info that's just happened within the past couple months that I'm also unaware of then those are the only ways I've ever seen patients get insulin and inhalers at that price 🤷♀️
It’s really hard to approach something like this online because you don’t want to call someone a liar by making questioning their information a personal attack (whether intentionally or otherwise) but in giving them the benefit of the doubt you almost get your hopes up. Like they may not realise it’s Medicaid or whatever that makes their medication that price, I’m still not trying to call this person a liar, but the idea that there could be something I don’t know is really exciting I guess
The sad thing is to a degree this is actually pretty accurate.
Benadryl dementia? That sounds scary!
Its not reversible. She's fried her brain funct for attention in her teens. So sad. Look at her online posts, many make no logical sense.
I'd love to see a link for articles on how certain meds/drugs/substances can change the shape of one's face (seen you mention this in several comments). I'm quite interested in how that works. I know massive weight loss/gaincan make one's face appear different, but actual substances changing the bone structure is something totally new to me.
Its been studied since the epidemics in the 80s. You're welcome to check out the studies from doctors and treatment centers. I don't like posting one link on reddit, since you might not like the source. Cocaine rots the nose. Meth concentrates in teeth. Its pretty well known that drug usage effects more than just your mental state
Can you add a link? [This is the paper I have read](https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/2736353) on the subject. While they use the word “risk” in the conclusion part of the key points section, the paper itself only concludes there is an association between the two. It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s causative. It could be that people with allergies are more likely to develop dementia or something… That’s just the first thing that came to mind that could cause there to be an association between Benadryl and dementia that isn’t causative, I have no idea if that’s been tested or not.
I’d love to learn more because I find this to be incredibly fascinating!
If only there was a way she didn’t have to feel like this……..
On another note, nothing on the baby bird for a few days. Did it die?
Still alive and kicking she posted a TikTok featuring baby bird a few hours ago
Precisely. It's a device with risks but ultimately sick people choose the lesser of the two evils to either help them continue surviving or to improve their health as much as they can. It's not something to be taken lightly. I really hope your mum is doing better and if not I'm sending you strength and positivity.
Whats a port?
Adding to other replies, it’s also used with children who need frequent IV meds and the veins in their arms are too small/delicate.
It's an IV like access device that goes under the skin. It is placed in one of the larger veins near the heart.
It is most often used for chemo. Chemo is caustic and can destroy smaller veins. So the port allows the chemo to be put into the larger more sturdy veins.
It can also be used in situations where IV access is needed frequently. The port stays covered under the skin when not in use but can be accessed by putting a special needle into it. Then it can be used just like an IV for blood draws or infusions of medicine. Some people who have frequent hospital visits can benefit from having one. Poking the veins too much can cause all sorts of issues.
If you have cancer and are going through chemotherapy it is something you get. Chemo drugs are highly toxic. The port goes into your carotid artery so that when they pump the chemo into you your heart will distribute it quickly. Dom doesn't need one.
I don't know much about ports but I doubt it goes in an artery. Probably one of the main veins like the jugular or clavicle.
You're right. It's a vein. It's supposed to send the chemo into the heart to be pumped out.
We have very different descriptions of Dom and her family.
Hah okay admittedly I haven’t paid much attention to her spouse and kid situation, I just know they’re there.
Yeah and one of those kids she doesn’t have custody of if I’m recalling correctly. She’s trash, personified.
Oh my god she is dumb. Guess she was too excited about the giveaway, she forgot she was supposed to be in extreme pain 😂
She reminds me of kids who are so sick they can't possibly go to school, but then as soon as they're allowed to stay home, they're fine.
I think she is high on painkillers during the second part of the video, where she talks about the give away. I bet she will milk this for all it’s worth for those sweet hard painkillers she claims to not like. 🤡🤡🤡
Have a question an I may have just missed Dom posting it. Did she say she needed a port for daily hydration an if so is she getting her "water" by IV daily? I've only seen her getting an IV once since having "surgery".
Yes it's for daily hydration. I think maybe she's been told she has to wait for it to heal before she accesses it for the first time?
Could she be on pain pills in the third clip?
You still feel bad pain on opiates. You're just too blotto to be effected by it.
I mean, she absolutely could be, but pain meds don't take away your pain, they just make it where you're less conscious of the pain you're in. If you were to do something that aggravated your injury/pain source, you'll still feel it and stop yourself.
I rarely have patients that aren't on narcotics, and if a patient is able to move their surgical site without any pain, that's actually a sign that you need to reduce the amount of medication that they are on.
This is probably a dumb question, but, when people take pain meds on a regular basis? they don’t get the “high” from pain meds. So I’m assuming they don’t really have much of an altered mental state or are less conscious. How do pain meds work for those people?
Image is flipped, look at the nose piercing.
True, but the arm on the port side is still moving up and down a lot and holding out the camera, which is arguably more strenuous.
This is gold, reminds me of when SGB did that video panting and slow breathing in the mirror while sliiiiightly moving her shoulder and wincing, and then like two days later posted a pic where she was propped up on it and everyone called her out
Is that a different video than when she was complaining about a cyst (I think) in her armpit or is that different? I remember her rubbing her armpit and acting like she was about to cry for like 30 seconds but it’s been a long time since I’ve watched it
Omg the “grape sized” cyst 😂😂
Different video but yeah I remember that too!
Apparently exacerbating her pain in front of a mirror to prove how sick she was is her calling card haha
That lady was/is such a mean and selfish person. People existed only to serve her and if they didn't, she would act out or punish them. I pity anyone forced to be around her.
SGB was my intro to these communities and the one I’ve always been most disgusted with. I compare Dom to SGB a lot so I’m glad someone else said it. This reminds me of SGB’s video of her trying to wash herself in her bathtub and recoiling in pain.
SGB was literally how I found this sub. She posted something about this sub and it piqued my interest-I stalked this sub for hours and it helped me piss out SGB’s Kool-Aid I had been drinking.
SGB was so entertaining
I miss her, she has been by far - for me - the most entertaining with all her props & privilege
It’s between her and Tina for me.
Props and privilege could be their duo name.
When her mother paid someone to hang out with her and she made the poor woman do her laundry and make her cucumber water, i almost died.
Sara grace, she used to be a heavily featured subject before she went private. She was the worrrssssttt. Super rude and smug and chatted the largest quantity of horse shit
I just finished the Kelly rabbit hole and I'm ready for another one. Any tags for Sara grace?
If i recall correctly it was SGB for the tag
I cringe at everything she posts.
Dom's one of the ones who infuriates me the most...she absolutely does NOT need a port and it's disgusting she only got one after being seen by twelve previous Drs who denied her(I wonder if Dr #13 who agreed to place the port knew she'd begged 12 others for one and been told no and if that knowledge would have changed their mind about placing one)..quit being such a fucking baby Dom and complaining over a port you don't need. The first time they access her,don't get blood return and have to cath flo her port are we gonna get a video about how awful that was?
Maybe she should’ve researched this before she begged to get it.
She was posting "educational" videos about ports a while back. I wonder how she got to be such an expert on ports when she apparently didn't look up basic info.
Like, I don't have a port, I don't know anybody with one, I'm not particularly interested. But even I know that they get attached to muscle and should move with your body. It would actually be way worse if it DIDN'T move with your body.
I like when they try to school their viewers.
I've seen toddlers with ports who mange better then Dom
Dom really works hard and really exceeds at what she puts her mind to. Which happens to be pretending to be sick on the internet.
She looks like shit. Does she sound like she’s slurring her words really badly in the second part? Especially the ending.
Agreed, she is doped up, no wonder it stopped hurting.
She can get those good Iv meds now
Ohhh shell quickly learn that having a port doesn't mean they'll give you the good meds ..they don't have to give shit for meds even with a port
I was referring to the nausea meds and Benadryl I’m sure she’ll start pursuing any day…
