A 33-year-old member asked:

i'm just wondering, if you've had cataract surgery and had new lens put in, can you still use the sunbed or not?

Yes: You will still need to wear eye protection, though. Life before and after cataract surgery does not really change. Only difference is that should see better.

Yes!: You still need to use eye protection as indicated before you had cataract surgery.
Dr. Sandra Lora Cremers

Sunbed p cataract: Most eyeMDs still recommend sunglasses the majority of the time to prevent damaging UV rays on the macula and lens even if your Intraocular implant (IOL) has UV protection built in. Sunbeds are allowed after cataract surgery, but still wear eye protection. More info: eyedoc2020@blogspot.com

Would it be smart to get checked for adhesions that may have evolved from a c-section I had 4 years ago?

Depends: If a patient has had surgery, they will most generally form adhesions. This is very true for women who've had cesarean delivery. If the goal is pain reduction, it may be worth have laparoscopy, but if just curious, may not be worth the risk involved having surgery.

Probably yes: You should have had blood work to see if there is a fixable hormonal reason why you are skipping your periods. In general the pill is an excellent and safe way to regulate your periods. I recommend either asking more questions (maybe going with a list or a friend) so you understand your treatment better. It is unusual to do a D&C for a "stuck" period. Usually that can be treated with medicine.

My 17year old son just had a 12 lead ECG done it showed t wave inversions in ii, iii, avf & v4. Could the barium from an ugi series cause this?

Nonspecific: T wave inversion may be part of a normal ekg and has to interpreted by a doctor. Inverted t wave is normal in iii and sometimes other leads without meaning anything alarming. Have the doctor let you know what they think. The ekg interpretation can change with age as well so you need expertise to read them at this age.
