Lung disease: People with this condition often develop emphysema, with

you have this condition and smoke or are exposed to tobacco smoke, it
accelerates the appearance of emphysema symptoms and lung damage.

Unless the two credits you received at this community college are absolutely vital to completing your undergraduate studies on schedule, if you are unable to have these F’s dropped from your transcript (or at the least changed to I’s), then you might just consider the entire enterprise a wash. This means if you are unable to have your transcript corrected, then you should seriously consider not disclosing it. THIS ADVICE COMES WITH A WARNING THOUGH. While not disclosing this information to your undergraduate university shouldn’t have any serious or immediate consequences, aside from simply not getting credit for the two courses you completed, failure to disclose this information to a graduate institution during the application process could be construed as academic dishonesty. Even if you get into your dream school, if they find out that you altered or withheld information during the application process you could face expulsion or other severe consequences. My advice in this case is to contact the graduate schools you are interested in and find out exactly what their policies are in regards to accepting and reviewing transferable credits.
Other types of gallstones. Other types of gallstones are rare. Perhaps the most interesting type is the gallstone that forms in patients taking the antibiotic, ceftriaxone (Rocephin). Ceftriaxone is unusual in that it is eliminated from the body in bile in high concentrations. It combines with calcium in bile and becomes insoluble. Like cholesterol and pigment, the insoluble ceftriaxone and calcium form particles that grow into gallstones. Fortunately, most of these gallstones disappear once the antibiotic is discontinued; however, they still may cause problems until they disappear. Another rare type of gallstone is formed from calcium carbonate .
