Bear Naked Granola
Ate cooked butternut squash & cooked carrots. 4.5 hrs later had bowel movement & saw it in my stool.Does it make sense that it passed thru so quickly?
Bowel transit time: Normally takes ~ 2.5 -5 hours in the stomach and 2.5-5 in the intestines, then 12 + in the colon. But if you have only a diet of vegetables and drink water/coffee which is a cathartic, it is possible to get more rapid transit time, as by 4-5 hours there is food in colon. Alternatively could be from yesterday. http://www.vivo.colostate.edu/hbooks/pathphys/digestion/basics/transit.html ...Read more

Need a balanced diet: Your bmi is currently at the upper limit of normal. If you are muscular, it would be inappropriate to try to get your weight down to 150 lbs. You need to strive to eat a well balanced diet that you can maintain, rather than try some fad diet to temporarily lose weight, only to regain it once you eat more normally. ...Read more
12weeks s/p tib-fib fx tibia imrod +3 screws. Ct shows <20% healing. Able to bear 60lb without any pain+ walk with 1crutch. Is it safe to bear weight.
Was my lunch ok for weight loss or did i screw up?I'm 18 male 5'9 170. One piece whole grain bread, slice onion, slice tomato, 1 avacodo, handful almonds
OK: One meal isn't going to make or break your program- the best way to lose weight is permanent changes in how you eat. Slow ; steady is the way to go. Hard to evaluate your lunch without knowing the rest of your diet but it looks ok. Eat mostly fruits, veggies, nuts ; seeds ; you'll lose weight. I'd have much more tomato/onion that a slice. Whole grains ok in moderation. See http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fell off 2 1/2 foot height, xray show no broke bone yet I have 2 swollen, painful knees, decr. Range of motion, problems stading up, walking & sitting?
See an Orthopedist: Most likely this is sprained ligaments of the knee, maybe even combined with meniscal injury, that are responsible for your symptoms. Initial treatment includes nsaids, crutches, cold compresses, splint(s) and resting them. Generally the bruising gets better, but if no improvement over 10-14 days time, then see an orthopedist for further care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Poor nutrition in: the diet you mention, not the amount that is the real issue. Please see a nutritionist who can help you create a good food plan.

ORIF&IM nailing of tibia 2months ago.doc said no weight bearing but can walk with crutch.can I sit on chair&hang leg.is that little weight cause prob?
Should be OK: The problem is YOUR weight--if intending to bear partial weight or toe-touch weight, but then lose balance and now have all of your weight on that side--it can impact the repair / healing. If just the weight from the rest of the extremity and gravity--not a big deal. ...Read more
My 2 yo was in front of shopping cart. Bros jumped on cart & knocked it forward to ground. Don't think he hit head or very lightly. No crying. Worry?
Generally no concern: Most of the time if a child hits himself against an object, falls on a hard surface and the like just observe your child. Of course, settings and children are different. Generally if no loss of consciousness, child is herself/himself, then just observation should be enough. However, if the child shows any odd behivior, then an emergency evaluation would be wise. Most importantly remain calm! ...Read more

Transverse, comminuted distal tibial fracture 4m ago. Surgery was carried out wid plates. Can walk wid brace, uneven gait. Will i b abl 2 walk properly?
Maybe: It depends on the nature of the distal tibia fracture and if it involved the articular surface or not. Fractures that involve the joint surface can be life-changing injuries. If the articular surface was uninjured, you should regain normal walking cadence, but it could take several months as distal tibia fractures are slow to heal. It's hard to say without seeing the x-rays. ...Read more

Most likely no...: The little white package contains silica gel, a substance used to prevent moisture. If swallowed, it should pass without problem. Drinking plenty of water can help with stomach irritation. If distress, in any form, continues after ingesting the silica gel, contact a poison control center or local medical care. ...Read more

Two incidents. 1. Grinding genitals naked, but no ejaculate. 2. Protected sex, and a shower together afterwards. But out genitals touched, pregnant?
How to get pregnant?: I am sure you know this if you think carefully. A female, to get pregnant, must be ovulating and be on her fertile day during the cycle. And, second there must be exposure inside of the vagina to fresh semen. Genitals touching is not how one gets pregnant. There must be unprotected penetration during a fertile day. ...Read more
