Norplant (levonorgestrel)? No: Norplant (levonorgestrel) was removed from the us market in 2002, so it is not even available. As for removal, some insurers, such as medicaid, cover removal while many do not. Check with your insurer. If you mean nexplanon, the recommendation is still the same.

Severity of illness: Rsv is a virus that causes bronchiolitis. This illness can vary from a mild respiratory infection to a severe infection with wheezing and difficult breathing. If the child has any symptoms that seem moderate to severe especially difficulty breathing, then they need medical attention. Children that are born premature or that have asthma are particularly vulnerable to a sever infection.

Will I stop getting all medical treatment when i'm under hospice care?

Different care: Since the goals are comfort, you will get ant treatment for comfort. On the other hand they are not concerned with treating cholesterol, or mild high blood pressure. Those treatments will not improve comfort or change outcome. The care is very specifically designed to improve quality of life.

A male asked:

Is the medical profession being overrun w/mediocrity? I just went to a new pcp was referred to a urologist for the prostate exam. Why waste my time?

In my opinion: And my opinion only, our profession is overrun with bureaucracy, over regulation, administrative burdens and oversight that leads to the frustration i pick up in your statement. Also, seems everybody has an opinion, whether well educated or not. Tell you what, if hippa would allow, you should spend a day with a doctor. After you do, it may be easier for you to understand the crap we put up with.
