Do people who smoke mary jane really get dumber?

Do people who smoke mary jane really get dumber?

Actually some very: Smart folks smoke mj, but they act very dumb while under the influence. They think they are profound and brilliant, but they really are just stoned. Many not so smart people smoke, and they do not get any brighter afterward. It can be psychoaddictive and can tempt you to smoke and do nothing else. That is indeed not productive, if not dumb. ...Read more

Do people who smoke mary jane really lose brain cells?

Brain function: The research is equivocal about actual brain cell loss with use of marijuana. (mri scans don't show this.) however, brain function definitely changes for the worse while under the influence -- and possibly longer, especially with chronic use. Http://www. Drugabuse.

I have tumor on left temple for a few months... it is 1 inch across and 1/2 inch high. Can I split the skin and take it out my self? Jane van Dis

Try to remove: Depending on age, the most common cause of a large painless nodular lesion of the temple is keratosis. These lesions never bleed since they represent accumulation of skin in layers and at times can be peeled off. Other nodular lesions like an amelanotic nevus would bleed if irritated as would be true of an exophytic squamous malignancy. ...Read more

Thanks dr. Jane van dis, I took the 1st pill around 11 hours after unprotected sex. So how will be the pregnancy chance?

Thanks dr. Jane van dis, I took the 1st pill around 11 hours after unprotected sex. So how will be the pregnancy chance?

Timing is everything: It looks as if you took the pill very quickly. So your chances at preventing pregnancy are good. Likely you have a 60-75% chance of preventing a pregnancy. This assumes, by the way, that were ovulating when you had the unprotected intercourse, and were going to get pregnant. It's possible that you had no possibility of getting pregnant because no egg was release or available for implantation. ...Read more

Good morning doctor I have horrible pain on all my teeth, not decayed. Why and what can I take for relieve. Jane?

Gingival recession: You may simply have gingival recession. The roots of our teeth are sensitive to: cold air, cold water, sugar, metal and other objects, etc.
If this is the case, try a desensitizing toothpaste. In fact, try several-they have different formulas and not a single one works for everybody.
In a severe case, a dentist can desensitize your teeth. ...Read more

I have celiac, sjogren's and C4 immune problems. Need surgery -knee and cateract = can it be a problem - worried. Jane?

Cataract surg risks: Risks for small incision surgery has improved significantly over the years. The vast majority of patients have no complications. Immune issues do increase the risk of infection, complications, but closer follow up and an awareness of this risk allows pt & MD to be on top of any unusual post op symptoms, like pain, decrease vision, etc. ...Read more

I have some clear silicone breast enhancers from joann fabric. My daughter who is 3 literally took a bit out of one. Is clear silicone toxic?

Not really: I don't see that being the best thing to eat, and I am sure you were worried when it happened, but this is a fairly inert substance (and probably not too tasty). I would just wash out her mouth, wipe out any you can, and watch her for a bit. Any silicone bits she might have swallowed should pass in the next day or so. ...Read more

Jeanne, 58 has epilepsy. Dilation & keppra (levetiracetam). Lost 60lbs meds adjusted seizures start again. Meds adjusted back seizures continue. (Levels fine) ideas?

Advice: Find a neurologist who specializes in epilepsy. You may need different medications, consideration for a VNS unit, search for an underlying co-morbidity, and updated MRI with ambulatory EEG studies. Some hospitals have inpatient monitoring centers, and this too may help. A Concierge visit could deal with this in part more thoroughly. ...Read more

Does anyone have info on the janene heart operation for transposition of the great vessels? How does it work?

Jatene operation: This procedure is named after the surgeon who pioneered the technique. It is more commonly known as the arterial switch operation, because the transposed great arteries are "switched" back to where they belong. Moving the great arteries is a relatively easy procedure. The more difficult part of the procedure is relocating the coronary arteries, which are very small. ...Read more

Hi, I have gall stones, abdominal pain, nausea and fatigue. Recurring UTI's and kidney reflux. Would you recommend removing gall bladder? Jayne :)

Cholecystectomy: Is usually advised for symptomatic gallstones, before it causes complications such as acute cholecystitis, pancreatitis, jaundice, or peritonitis, unless your surgical/anesthesia risk is prohibitively high. It will not improve your uti and reflux problem however. Ask your surgeon for specific advice. ...Read more

9 weeks pregnant and constipated. I drink water and gatorade. And Jane been eating bran cereal. Haven't had a normal bowel movement for about a week.

9 weeks pregnant and constipated. I drink water and gatorade. And Jane been eating bran cereal. Haven't had a normal bowel movement for about a week.

Include more fiber: In diet! Gatorade is mainly sugar, and not so great for electrolyte replacement. There is something with less sugar called Vitamin Water, but what is even safer is coconut water (fresh). That was used in WW2 to treat wounded soldiers IV! In any case, call your OB/GYN for further direction, and eat more cooked greens and veges. Better to use organic steel cut oats, than bran (GMO). ...Read more
