Did bruce jenner return to same md for repair of plastic surgery? Should you if unhappy?

Did bruce jenner return to same md for repair of plastic surgery? Should you if unhappy?

Short answer is yes.: The long answer is that most surgeons want to make their patients happy with the results of any surgical intervention. Sometimes less than optimal results can happen that are out of the surgeon's control like infection, hypertrophic scarring, capsular contracture with breast augmentations, etc... I have found that most surgeons truly want to achieve the best results possible and are willing to. ...Read more

Suddenly felt pain in my pinkie joint, it start getting blue in my eyes and got so painful I couldn't bend it. Now it looks like bruce. What happened?

Pinkie pain: You must have traumatized the area without knowing it. Do you remember hitting it on anything? Try some Motrin 600 mg 3 times a day. 3 tablets a day. Try some ice to the area 20 mins every hour 4 to 5 times a day. If it is not better in a few days get an X-ray. ...Read more

I had laparoscopy surgery 4days ago and my belly button have yellow color and bruce. And have thick dry blood on surgical site. It is normal?

Sound OK: Following surgery, a small amount of bleeding is normal and it will produce a bruise as well as a scab. The yellowish color I'm not sure of... But, it might be what is left of the skin prep used. If you have increased pain, fevers, redness or drainage- see your doc. Otherwise seems within normal. ...Read more

Is it bad when the veins in your legs pop living bad brucing and pain im 29 years old I have suffered of high blood presure for 4 years now, lateley I have been getting this uncontrolable headaches can this be related?

Is it bad when the veins in your legs pop living bad brucing and pain im 29 years old I have suffered of high blood presure for 4 years now, lateley I have been getting this uncontrolable headaches can this be related?

Very: Very high blood pressure can definitely cause headaches. That's not the only cause, of course, but if your headaches are in fact caused by your high blood pressure, then it means you may be at risk of complications like bleeding.

It's unusual for a 29 year-old to have high blood pressure, so when it happens you have to think of unusual causes. In some cases, high blood pressure in a young patient is due to a condition called fibromuscular dysplasia, which is a benign abnormality in the arteries that supply the kidneys. It is relatively easy to fix with a balloon, so it is worth checking for. This can be done with ultrasound or ct angiography.

Whether or not your headaches are caused by your hypertension, and whether or not you have fibromuscular dysplasia, it's important to get it under control. Untreated high blood pressure can cause a host of long-term complications. ...Read more

To dr rick koch, what is mean BP thanks?

Mean BP: I'm guessing you are not interested in the concept of mean arterial pressure which incorporates aspects of systolic & diastolic pressure. Mean or average BP is the same thing. When trying to assess effectiveness of BP control I tell my patients to keep a log of BP & hr so we can average or take a mean of those values & make treatment decisions at their next office visit. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Sure: I hope your intentions are good asking for a hug. I love to hug my patients and usually I am the one who initiates it and so far have not had a problem with any of patients. I don't just hug them out of the blue but I spent quality time with them to make them ready for that.

No definitive rules: According to the ama, "gifts that patients offer to physicians are often an expression of appreciation and gratitude or a reflection of cultural tradition, and can enhance the patient-physician relationship." one criterion to consider is whether the doctor would be comfortable if acceptance of the gift were known to colleagues or the public. The dr-pt relationship is always first. ...Read more
