After many years & without warning, my dr. Cut my methadone from 60 mg/ day to 10mg/day. Is this safe? I'm having an extremely difficult time!

Very Uncomfortable: Probably safe, however, I wonder why such a rapid change in dosage was made. There are many reasons that dosages are changed that are justified. On the other hand, rapid dosage decreases can cause severe withdrawal symptoms which generally are not dangerous but are extremely uncomfortable but it depends on the patient's other medical conditions. Talk with your doctor and ensure that was intended. ...Read more

If someone asked you to cut them what would you think?

If someone asked you to cut them what would you think?

Problematic.: A healthy person does not ask another person to hurt them. Whether this is to feel the experience, to release an inner hurt, or another reason, it is a big red flag that something is wrong. Please encourage your friend to get help, or share your concern with a trusted grownup that knows this person. If it's you, please find an adult you're comfortable with to talk to about this. ...Read more

My dr. Left some of my tubes so in case I want to have kids again. But. Cut and burned them so can they grow back together since he left some there?

My dr. Left some of my tubes so in case I want to have kids again. But. Cut and burned them so can they grow back together since he left some there?

Very unlikely: The combination of cutting and burning tubes makes it VERY unlikely that they will be able to grow back together naturally. Some fancy micro surgery might allow a return to fertility but even this is not likely. ...Read more

I recently have been circumsised and noticed thst the frenulum hasn't been removed. I wanted a full circumsion, should my dr have cut it? Can he still?

I recently have been circumsised and noticed thst the frenulum hasn't been removed. I wanted a full circumsion, should my dr have cut it? Can he still?

Probably but Why: Cutting the frenulum will greatly decrease sensitivity. While it is often done when an infant is circumsized, most try to avoid it. The frenulum has a tremendous number of nerve endings in it that greatly add to pleasure and sensation and you did have a "full circumcision" even if the frenulum was not cut. Still, ask your surgeon/doctor if you are not happy with what they did. ...Read more
