Can I do an emma after my hysterectomery. My vowels are not moving...?

You mean enima?: Assuming you mean an enima and your bowels, the answer is yes. Having a hysterectiomy will not affect your ability to give yourself an enima. You may also try increasing the fiber and fluids in your diet, and possibly using a stool softener. If constipation persists, then see your doctor, good luck pugsley. ...Read more

Iud been in for 18months. Bleeding for 6weeks now. I pass clots so much pain. Can't bare it. What is wrong with me, emma.

Iud been in for 18months. Bleeding for 6weeks now. I pass clots so much pain. Can't bare it. What is wrong with me, emma.

Could have moved: It's rare for an iud to migrate, but it's possible. It's also unlikely for the iud to cause bleeding after having 18 months to settle in. Take a pregnancy test to be safe, and then call your gyn for an evaluation. Infections, hormone imbalances, polyps, endometriosis and fibroids are all causes of abnormal bleeding. You would need an evaluation to determine the cause for you. ...Read more

I'm 22yrs f. I'v edema on face since the past 5-6years. The cause is unknown. But recently aftr an abortion it disappeared for a month. Wat could dis b?

Wonderful clue: It could be coincindental but I agree it likely suggests a reason for the facial edema. I am not aware of any established explanation. In Chinese medicine it might be all consistent with an "earth" imbalance. If I were to consider a Western specialist I would probably consult an endocrinologist. ...Read more

I want to know what face cream we can use for eczma, we have had all moisturisers and nothing is working!

Eczema: Heavy moisturizing creams and lotions are effective for treating eczema. Examples include Neutrogena or Aquaphor. The face is a bit trickier because the skin is more sensitive and it is important to avoid the eyes. Steroid creams are effective in the treatment of eczema. This will require consultation with your internist for dermatologist. ...Read more

I was recently diagnosed with a t6-7 disc protrusion with edema. Does this require surgery? No medication has helped so far.

T6-7 disc: NO - not every disc require surgery, least of all Thoracic discs. One never does surgery based on what the MRI shows alone. You need a full evaluation. There are many minimally invasive options that needs to be tried first before any surgical option is considered. Also do not forget the possibility of Stem Cells being used. ...Read more

My wife is on her 3rd day with a fever and today she woke up with facial edema and itching on her face. Can we get a differential Dx?

Why edema of nephrotic mainly in the face while for heart failure found in the lower limp?

Why edema of nephrotic mainly in the face while for heart failure found in the lower limp?

Gravity and osmosis: Distribution of excess fluid in nephrotic syndrome is throughout the body due to loss of blood proteins that hold water in the vascular system. Osmosis then drags water to areas of higher concentration. It may show more in the face because one can notice that most easily, but is generally throughout the body. This is known as anasarca. In chf, the osmotic effect is not present, so gravity wins. ...Read more

I am swollen from my face all the way to me feet, and it is painful! I am constipated a lot too, I did enema, will that help?

Need Dr visit: Your use of 'swollen' leave me with more questions and concern than ability to help you. If you have swelling (as in edema / fluid buildup), then you need to go to your dr or the er for evaluation as to source asap. If you are just 'plugged up, ' then an enema might start things moving, and may need a follow up x 1, then soften from above. Still good to see dr to determine what started problem. ...Read more

White opaque clear slime/mucus came out whn I farted while peeing. Had a saline enema the night before. Slime had slight fishy smell.

Mucus: This mucus secretion was most likely the result of mild irritation/inflammation brought on by the enema that you administered. It's a benign reaction and should subside without any treatment. If constipation is a persistent and definite change in your usual bowel pattern, consult your physician for evaluation. ...Read more
