The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A female asked:
Supplements: Many over the counter supplements thin the blood and increase the risks of bleeding complications during surgery. Garlic supplements and fish oil often do this. Many of these supplements will stay in your body for several days. I recommend letting your surgeon know about which supplements you are taking.
A 22-year-old female asked:
A 42-year-old member asked:
Possibly.: If you have a history of increased sun exposure and especially with a history of a blistering sunburn, you should see a dermatologist at least twice a year of a complete skin cancer screening. Melanoma that is caught in the earliest of stages is highly treatable.
