What is the best test to get to find out where you are at with chronic pancreatitist?Stage. As do I even want to fight it.

See a GI doctor: And a surgeon who deals with the pancreas. Chronic disease in this area is quite frustrating to try and manage effectively and usually requires a team approach. This can only be addressed by the physicians caring for you. Trust their opinions or request a second opinion from somebody else who can examine you and review your records and imaging studies.

Confusion: I'm afraid the 5 years it takes you to be an obgyn added to the 3 or more needed to be a pediatrician would make you an oddity. The shorter pathway would be to find a family practice residency that prepared you for this sort of practice in a smaller town setting. The bigger town you work in the more you must narrow your work field. ...Read more

Big life decisions: Are you happy when you are lied to? Do keep that in mind if you lie to your doctor or to other people. In the US, we are a free people living in a free society, which means there is no reason to lie about pregnancy or abortion. Plan life so that unexpected pregnancies do not happen. But if they do, a couple can decide with the doctor whether or not to get rid of their baby fetus, but avoid lying. ...Read more

What is the best thing to do when you are starting to have a gallstone attack?

What is the best thing to do when you are starting to have a gallstone attack?

LetNatureTakeCourse: Most attacks occur due to a stone temporarily blocking the (cystic) duct that drains the gallbladder; this stone usually falls back w/in an hour or so, relieving the pain. Narcotics may be effective to "break" an attack, either by reducing pressure in the biliary tree or just holding one over until nature takes its course. Best bet: don't wait for the next attack to occur--get treated (surgery). ...Read more

Can you tell me in general, I want to know what you think - are gmos a good idea or are they dangerous or could they be the key to ending world hunger?

Keys: All hunger is political. World hunger will end when, and only when, politicians are no longer actively working to keep people hungry. In recent years, food donated to the victims of famines has been destroyed by their governments -- often citing the obviously-false claims of anti-GMO militants. The technology that has so increased food productivity should belong to humankind, not big corporations. ...Read more
