Back from india on 4/12 (1wk, 3rd trip). Persistent diarrhea since. Unlike prior trips this time walked on beach barefoot, ate at local restrnts.
Traveler's Diarrhea: It sounds like you contracted a case of traveler's diarrhea usually from bacterial enteropathogens in contaminated water, fruit, or vegetables. If you do not have bloody stools, nausea/vomiting, or significant cramps, you can try Bismuth Subsalicylate (two 262mg tablets every 30 minutes up to eight doses/24hrs. You can also try loperimide. See dr asap if diarrhea persists or blood, n/v, cramps. ...Read more
Yes: Recommendations for travel after an ivf treatment vary from center to center. Originally, women had recovery room bed rest for as much as 4 hours. Now women leave the office almost immediately. We do not really know exactly, so you may want to delay your trip home for a day or two. The delay would be for psychological reasons mostly but you may get solace if the test is later negative. ...Read more
Any suggestions for traveling with lower back problems? I'm taking a long flight this weekend. I know pack light, rolling bags, stay active. Others?
Back pain: Try to get up in the plane every 30-45 mins and stretch... Squat down and hug your knees to stretch the back, and do not forget hamstrings... Maybe take some tylenol (acetaminophen) es or Ibuprofen if you can tolerate them prior to boarding even... Darn those small seats! best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sleep Cycle Disorder: I would suggest a possible sleep study to determine if a circadian sleep cycle disorder does not exist. Also a broader evaluation checking for an anxiety and depressive problem. Depending upon the results, light therapy may help with or without melatonin. In more severe conditions Modafinil may be needed either with or without c-pap. C-pap if for breathing disorders. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
14mo boy- pneumonia in both lungs. Preparing to go home from hospital tmrow. I'm nervous about raking him home. Helpful care tips once we are home?
Most treated at home: If a kid is taking fluids well, eating some and capable of taking oral meds he can do well at home. He will need adequate rest when he tires, and simple balanced nutrition for a normal recovery. As long as he wets a diaper every 4-6 hours and appears to be regaining his pre-illness playfulness, his recovery is going well. ...Read more

Have cystorectocele. Urogyn recommends surgery; recovery was @12 weeks. Planning trip to Israel 7/2/15.If repair done 4/6/15,is it too early to travel?
No: Having done thousands of vaginal repairs and reviewing the literature on postop restrictions, there is little basis for limiting activities for any significant time. I perform all of these surgeries on an outpatient basis with return to work or normal activities whenever a patient feels up to it and that's usually within a week or so. Be sure to see an experienced surgeon for any vaginal repairs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I recently got a scholarship to go run track in oregon and i'm just wondering if eating chicken kebabs from afghan restaurants are unhealthy?
Chicken...: ...Is chicken: if thoroughly cooked and properly handled, the chances of catching an infection are very low. If the local health department inspects restaurants and this one got a passing grade, then i really don't care if it's afghan, bactrian, canadian, danish, eritrean, french, german, hungarian... ...Read more

Had crossover toe surgery 3 days ago.Wire/screws.Stay at home mom went shopping,did laundry,etc. today.Feeling bad tonight.How long until recovery?
Ask your surgeon.: This is the very type question that I'm sure your surgeon discussed with you before you consented to have the operation. The surgeon is in the best position to answer it since he(she) knows exactly what had to be performed to reposition the toe. If I had to guess, I'd say you're into this for at least 6-8 weeks. Total recovery could take 6 months. ...Read more
