Would any doctor perform a thyroidectomy on me with a ft4 of 49.4? As medication is not working and radio treatment is not recommended to me.
Could be an option: Therapies for hyperthyroidism are medications, radioactive iodine therapy, and surgery. I would discuss all medical therapies before committing to surgery. Sometimes it may just take dose adjustments. Remember surgery trades on problem for another--hypothyroidism. Albeit it may be easier to treat, but you will still be on a medication permanently. If you fail medical therapy, surgery can work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can cough be avoided in patients with copd? Is antibiotics the first line of treatment each time there is a cough?
One of many: To treat exacerbation of copd, yes, but often along with other medications such as atrovent (ipratropium) inhaler, etc. Antibiotics are used often and early for acute exacerbation of COPD because of the propensity of this patient population to develop subsequent pneumonia. I assume this person is under treatment by a physician for these problems? If not, seek one out immediately. ...Read more

Plz be honest should a dr thats pt has a HRT rate above100 all the time an a low BP such as last time 54/92 not have some kind of work up done,if so??
Needs evaluation: Hi. That is abnormal, and at face value, strongly suggests to me the need for a diagnostic evaluation. For clarification, the BP is 92/54, not 54/92. If chronic, I would not tend to suspect hypovolemia ("dehydration"), but rather other causes. If fluid intake adequate? Adrenal insufficiency can cause that. Are your blood salts normal? That BP could be normal. Also check thyroid. Needs evaluation. ...Read more

Mucinex-D and Afrin (oxymetazoline): Try mucinex-d as long as you don't have blood pressure problems, for 7-10 days.

What is the best prescription weight loss medicine and why? Using it only as a starting point coupled with diet and exercise. Sometimes the first step is the hardest.
Complicated question: Unfortunately, there are no great options. Many meds have been taken off the market for safety concerns. The few that are left have their own side effect profile (cardiovascular risk, potential for addiction) and most studies show that the weight is regained after the medicine is stopped. The fda approved a new med recently - lorcaserin - but they are requiring more safety data. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have preoperation instruction , but still waiting for mvp repair schedule , the doctor is asking which valve do I prefer in case it is unrepairable, what is the best type?Case
Complicated: This is something that should be discussed at length before surgery with a firm decision as to what type of valve. Furthermore i would hope that the surgery is being done where valve repair is preferred. If the valve is unable to be repaired the options for valves are mechanical vs. Bioprosthetic. They both have advantages and disadvantages namely need for Coumadin (warfarin) or potential for repeat surgery. ...Read more
