Why is it that there are thousands on "Benzo buddies " in withdrawal for several years, like me, yet doctors have not a clue?

How long after a finger injury should I wait before buddy taping them?

How long after a finger injury should I wait before buddy taping them?

X-ray first...: With any finger injury you should have an x-ray to make sure that you don't miss a fracture, that may heal incorrectly. Once an x-ray is completed you will know if you need to individually splint the finger with something rigid, or if buddy taping is acceptable. Even with some fractures buddy taping is a good option, but this doesn't work for optimal healing of every finger injury. ...Read more

How long do I have to keep my toe that is fractured buddy taped?

How long do I have to keep my toe that is fractured buddy taped?

Oh...Buddy...: The best answer is: log enough to allow the fractured toe to become stable. This can vary depending on which toe is fractured and the severity of the fracture. You can figure between 2-4 weeks. Buddy taping is not without potential problems, there is a learning curve, so be careful when starting. Do not tape it too tight or too loose. If concerns should arise simple consult with a specialist. ...Read more

My buddy AST what does it mean when I pee in a y. And he pees all over?

Maybe a blockage: A guy should be able to pee straight. If not, then his primary care doctor or a urologist can take a close look at the meatus (the hole where the pee comes out) to see if there is some blockage. If there is blockage, some scarring, some narrowing (stricture), or hypospadias (the hole is off-center), the pee might spray all over the place, or come out in a y, a v, a w, etc... ...Read more

Sm. Finger injury 2+ yr ago, had closed reduction. Dr. recommends buddy tape to straighten finger. Can I use KT Tape to do this-no info on KT site.

AS long as it is not: Too tight, allows motion when permitted, and is the right treatment for the issue then sure tape is tape. Personally, I like to use coban and then tape over the coban. I also often recommend padding in the small web between the fingers to avoid maceration or wear. Hygiene is very important as a dirty web space will not only smell bad but the skin can get irritated. ...Read more

You didn't finish: But sounds like the answer is no. Second-hand marijuana smoke will virtually never cause a positive urine test (unless it is in a closed car with 5 people smoking and you inhaling deeply). In addition, unless they are doing hair follicle testing, nothing from that many months ago would be detectable in a urine or saliva test, and might not even be in most hair samples, depending on length. ...Read more

Son broke his toe. They want him to see an ortho. Why? Will they cast it? Thought you just buddy tape it.

Son broke his toe. They want him to see an ortho. Why? Will they cast it? Thought you just buddy tape it.

It depends: A pediatric orthopedist is a specialist that deals with children's fracture. If the toe is displaced or involves a growth plate (especially with the big toe)buddy taping the toe may not suffice. The referral sounds like a good idea, as it might involve a cast or other measures. ...Read more
