Giving blood tomorrow at 1pm, have a date at 8pm...would affect of a couple of beers be more increased than usual, or marginally?

Giving blood tomorrow at 1pm, have a date at 8pm...would affect of a couple of beers be more increased than usual, or marginally?

Thank you: Thank you for donating blood and being a good citizen. Drink 2-3 glasses of water before you donate and 2-3 glasses of juice after donating. I would not recommend beer even if you did not donate blood. Alcohol does no good to anyone. For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Incorrectly bent down during pregnancy @24w. I have marginal previa. Could I've caused more issues or posed a risk to my baby?

Incorrectly bent down during pregnancy @24w. I have marginal previa. Could I've caused more issues or posed a risk to my baby?

Absolutely not: Bending over alone cannot cause you to hurt your baby or aggravate your previa. If you were to bend over and lift 50 pounds that wouldn't be recommended, but I don't think you're doing that. Marginal previas, at 24 weeks, typically do move out-of-the-way by term, so fingers crossed that you can have a vaginal delivery at term! Best of luck. ...Read more

Light activity: Avoid strenuous activity and intercourse. Avoid things that make you contract. A marginal previa will usually resolve by the time you repeat your us and you will likely be able to resume these activities at that time. Braxton hicks contractions should not worry you. Ask your doctor for specific recommendations. ...Read more

Usually: The anti-cd 20 antibody is used with cytotoxics. Commonly a pet-ct is done at the start to identify areas involved. If a lump is not responding, might re-biopsy and check markers and assure its nhl, and not hodgkin's. Alternate chemo and XRT are prospects for true resistance. ...Read more
