I was hit in the groin right testical is swollen to the size of a larg fig, scotum is completely black but no real pain to speak of. ?

Here are some ...: Scrotal swelling + severe discoloration without much pain after a hit to right groin suggests a low likelihood of injury to the testicles inside the scrotum. Most likely, you got venous rupture in the groin by the hit leading to slow expanding infiltrative hemorrhage, which is usually self-containing and resolve slowly in time with patience. Of course, without a face to face interaction, it's hard ...Read more

As long as you are not diabetic your body should handle the sugars without difficulty. ...Read more

Add Miralax (polyethylene glycol): Constipation or stool holding is not uncommon at 22 months of age. It is very difficult to make a toddler eat the required amount of fiber/juice daily to overcome hard stools. To treat the stool holding/constipation i recommend 1/2 capful of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) daily-an otc stool softener-adjust the dose so your child has 1-3 soft easy thin stools daily. I would continue it for 4-6 months. ...Read more

Keep haveing mild kidney pain like a dull ache had catscan doc said have kidney stones in kidneys bloodwork can't fig out why alway aching doc  stumped?

A dull ache in the back, especially if related to certain positions, is likely musculoskeletal and you should try motrin/advil, heating pads and rest. ...Read more
