I got bucked off my horse and I got this huge scrape. I picked off the scab and I need to know if its going to scar?
Perhaps: Effects of pernicious digit habit influenced by intensity & duration. Thumb sucking can cause buck teeth, open bite, posterior collapse resulting in cross bite, affect speech and swallowing. Depending on child's age should see pedodontist or orthodontist for evaluation. No 2 children alike. Have to be examined to be evaluated to see if treatment indicated or not. ...Read more
My 2.5 year old has slightly bucked teeth from thumbsucking. Does this mean her adult teeth will be bucked?
Not necessarily: There's enough elasticity in growing children that slightly displaced teeth respond well to discontinuing thumb or finger habit by age 4. If continued beyond then, can cause permanent deformation that requires more complex treatment. Has to do with both intensity and duration. If you're concerned, see a pediatric dentist or an orthodontist for an opinion. It's never too early to learn. ...Read more
Not at this age: It is a concern when the adult teeth erupt into the mouth. ...Read more
My horse bucked me off yesterday. Suffering unbearable pain in my neck and spine. What are some good painkillers for this situation?
I tripped while on heels, my legs spread & my knees bucked. I massaged it with hot balm, was relieved, but I still feel little pain 8months after. Why?
Where is the pain?: You may have injured or strained something with this fall that is still not healed. Depending on where the pain is, what it is like would likely sort this out. Would recommend you see a good physical doctor, possibly starting with your pcp for an interview and exam, and depending on what they find, a referral for good physical and neurological examination, could be pt or doctor sometimes. ...Read more
He & my husband was having sex. We kinda got wild & I bucked back on him. He has been saying his penis hurts. Should he go to the hospital?
Yes: There is such a thing as a penile fracture. It is not a fracture of a bone (as there are no bones in the penis). It is a severe form of bending injury to the erect penis that occurs when a membrane called the tunica albuginea tears. The tunica albuginea surrounds the corpora cavernosa, specialized spongy tissue in the core of the penis that fills up with blood. In severe cases, surgery is required. ...Read more

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. You should probably do that with your doc as well, rather than asking him to hug you w/out any warning. ...Read more
