Depends on diagnosis: He has suspected appendicitis, after examination and tests may keep him for observation, or for surgery, then you have to pack for hospital stay, if tests are normal ( and exam ) he will come home. ...Read more

I have a tampon stuck, string broke so cant get it out. Is it best to go to dr's office, insta care or hospital? Been in for 1-2 hours.

I have a tampon stuck, string broke so cant get it out. Is it best to go to dr's office, insta care or hospital? Been in for 1-2 hours.

Either, but: The tampon cannot get lost in the vagina, if you are able to insert you fingers and feel the tampon, then you may be able to remove it with gentle traction. If you cannot get it to come out, then call your doctor or go the an urgent care - the ED at a hospital will be able to remove it, but that may be quite expensive. ...Read more

Should I go by myself to the hospital when my water breaks, or wait for my husband?

: If everything has been fine during your pregnancy, none of the complications mentioned below are present and you don't have a history of fast labors, waiting is fine. Remember that the membranes that break are a protective layer for your baby, so it is still better to get to the hospital within a couple of hours of the bag of waters breaking. ...Read more

Good for you!: Good for you for stepping up to help! if the person you helped has been diagnosed with HIV or hepatitis, there is a small chance you could be at risk. Speak to your doctor asap, because certain preventative therapies are available. Should you be in this situation again, it is ok to begin CPR without doing mouth-to-mouth breathing. Chest compressions alone may be enough. Again, good job! lgromkomd. ...Read more

Do I have a choice of whether I wish to receive a blood transfusion before a surgery if things were to go wrong and I lose lots of blood during????

Do I have a choice of whether I wish to receive a blood transfusion before a surgery if things were to go wrong and I lose lots of blood during????

Yes: You are free to refuse blood transfusions if you want. In this situation, your will pay for your bad decision with your life. Jehovah's Witnesses do this stuff. They die. Most surgeons would refuse to operate until you wise up. Blood component therapy has risks but today they are nothing compared to the risks of believing international scare stories and refusing needed health care. ...Read more

Without knowing: all of the specifics of the case it is difficult to answer even as simple a question as yours. Blood clots are a major cause of death in the US and worldwide.
