Oxycodone conversion: It is better to contact your prescribing physician since one has to take cross -tolerance into consideration for opioid rotation.

A 34-year-old member asked:

Why are there so many different patterns of weight gain in pregnant women?

Genetics: Every woman is different so every pattern of weight gain (and every pregnancy) will be different. As a general rule of thumb, a normal weight woman should gain between 25-35 pounds while pregnant. This often comes as a spurt in the middle of the pregnancy. Overweight women should gain less and underweight women more. Good nutrition and exercise are recommended for all pregnant women.
A 21-year-old member asked:

I have pain in my neck and have had many joint surgeries, is this common in eds?

Dr. Pavel Conovalciuc
Family Medicine 23 years experience
Hard to tell: Neck pain and joint pain is just as common in eds as in many other non-eds causes. As far as joint surgeries go, I am not sure what kind of surgeries you had and for what reason. Definitely, eds patients have multiple joint problems (hypermobility, fractures, laxaty etc.) that makes them prone to trauma etc.

A 52-year-old member asked:

How many times can you perform cardioversion to revert atrial fibrillation to normal sinus rhythm?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Louis Grenzer
Cardiology 55 years experience
There is no limit: However, there is not much point in doing it repeatedly if the patient continues to go back into fibrillation especially if on medicine to maintain normal rhythm. Patients can do quite well even if in fibrillation as long as the heart rate is controlled with medication.

Stage 3 breast cancer her2 positive how many herceptin (trastuzumab) cycle she must undergo?

2 doctor answers9 doctors weighed in
Dr. Romeo Mandanas
Hematology and Oncology 38 years experience
Up to 1 year's worth: Herceptin (trastuzumab) can be given together with initial chemotherapy for the first 4-6 months then subsequently by itself for a total of 1 year. If chemotherapy was given first without Herceptin (trastuzumab) then Herceptin (trastuzumab) can be given for a full year by itself. The usual cycle runs every 3 weeks (17-18 cycles in one full year).
Dr. Joseph Woods

The optimal treatment duration is currently unknown. Trials are being done to see if short term therapy is just as beneficial with less side effects, like cardiac dysfunction. For now, one year of treatment is accepted as the time period of therapy.
