Some long term effects from holding your pee too long?

Some long term effects from holding your pee too long?

Potential effects...: Holding and storing large volumes of urine is not healthy for the bladder. It can stretch the wall of the bladder, to which it responds by thickening. Over a long period of time, your bladder may not be able to contract efficiently and expel the urine. This is especially bad for men, because as they age, the prostate gland can obstruct the bladder making the contraction more important. ...Read more

Cholestasis of pregnancy - are there any alternatives to inducing at 37 weeks? Can you wait till proper full term of 39 weeks by monitoring baby often?

Cholestasis of pregnancy - are there any alternatives to inducing at 37 weeks? Can you wait till proper full term of 39 weeks by monitoring baby often?

Balance: There is always a balance to consider in these situations. Not all babies give clear indications on the monitor that something is wrong, and stillbirth, when it happens, happens mostly without warning. You can talk with doctor about your specific situation, as well as the risks of prematurity at 37 weeks. Typically, the balance at 37 weeks lays with inducing labor to prevent stillbirth. ...Read more

I've been taking 7 drops of clonazepam for 5 months to help me sleep. What long term side effects to expect? Is it too long a term?

I've been taking 7 drops of clonazepam for 5 months to help me sleep. What long term side effects to expect? Is it too long a term?

Talk to your doctor: If I am not mistaken 7 drops would constitute about 0.7 mg. Having said that, I am thinking that over time you may experience tolerance and also disruption of sleep architecture. Tolerance is where the same dose does not work as well. In addition, a longer acting benzodiazepine like Clonazepam will reduce both rem sleep and restful delta wave sleep. Talk to your prescribing doctor! ...Read more

How do I treat acute bronchitis during pregnancy (17 wks)? How long it usu takes to recover? Does prolonged bronchitis increase risk of preterm labor?

What are the long term and short term effects after getting a concussion?

What are the long term and short term effects after getting a concussion?

People may experience dizziness, unsteadiness, headache, blurry vision, concentration and memory difficulties, as well as other minor problems. Most of the time, these effects fade away within a month. ...Read more
