Post-op fever: This should be evaluated properly by the surgeons who performed your surgery. You hate to think of localized problems related to the surgery (i.e. infection) or something more systemic such as a blood clot sitting somewhere caused by being immobile for the procedure. Your body is weaker because of what it's been through-please call that surgeon NOW and get in to be seen. 4 days is too long to wait

Probably not: In younger women congestive dysmenorrhea can be very severe just before and the first 1-2 days of the cycle. If the symptoms are so severe consider using oral contraceptives which will relieve the symptoms. Talk to your gynecologist about it.

If I have had one seizure in the past is it safe to undergo a light hypnosis for anxiety I do take Dilantin which is a untheroputic level?

Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.

My grandpa pulled a muscle in his back & went to the va hospital yestray. Hes home now & thr medication they gave him doesn't help the pain & his sides are now hurting. What else can we do?

Call or go back VA: If the medication is not working, i'm sure the prescribing doctor wants to know. Call the doctor or go back to the va to get re-evaluated for possibly another treatment regimen. Depending on what was given, sometimes it takes more than 1 day to feel better but if you are concerned, definitely go back.
