Which gives more accurate test results when testing for chlamydia: the urine sample or the cervical swab?

Both good: Both are reasonably good tests. The urine sample has the advantage of allowing patients to get checked without subjecting themselves to a pelvic exam which deters some people.

No: Erythema multiforme is an allergic reaction. Em minor is similar to a very bad case of hives. Em major is severe and needs treatment in a hospital. Substance abuse often means a person exposes himself to illegal drugs (unknown purity, unknown additives, unknown amounts, etc...) and is at risk for getting allergic reactions to unknown substances he takes.

What is the typical physical therapy protocol for treatment of total hip replacement?

3 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Stephen Rockower
Orthopedic Surgery 46 years experience
Lots of exercise: You will need to strengthen the muscles around your hip. You will lift it in multiple directions, and walk on it ("weight bear") to get used to the new conditions. You may get on a stationary bike to aid in motion. You may have some motion precautions in the early stages, depending on the surgeon's approach to the hip.
