Moving soon to another state. Can I get the same treatment everywhere for infant chorioretinitis?

Possibly not easily: Ask your pediatrician/pediatric opthalmologist to recommend a specialist in infant chorioretinitis in the area to which you are moving. In large, more rural states, it may require driving some distance to see the specialist. ...Read more

Need to go pick up older parent for first medical exam in new small town. How can I best relate to the staff if I am from major city?

Need to go pick up older parent for  first medical exam in new small town. How can I best relate to the staff if I am from major city?

Respect and Expect: Respect the pace of small town life, as this may likely translate into the pace of the medical clinic. But, expect excellent care and results. If you are not satisfied by the knowledge, skill and empathy of the healthcare provider, then find another one. This advice is for city-dwellers and country-residents alike. ...Read more

Im an HBV carrier what is the right thing to do so i can go travel to the us & visit my bf?Is it require to have a blood test for aplying tourist visa

No test for travel?: Haven't heard of any requirements regarding hbv, for travel to the U.S. There are hbv carriers all over the world, including here in the U.S. If a person is a carrier, she should be sure all the people she has blood contact with, or sexual contact with, are vaccinated (unless a person's doctor says vaccination shouldn't be done). Her own household contacts should also be vaccinated. ...Read more

I went to a pharmacy to get treated of gonorrhea and the pharmacist directed me to go for herbal treatment rather. that thr is no good drugs for it?

I went to  a pharmacy to get treated of gonorrhea and the pharmacist directed me to go for herbal treatment rather. that thr is no good drugs for it?

Gonorrhea Treatment: In the summer of 2012, the CDC updated the guidelines again - recommending that all gonorrhea cases be treated with injectable, rather than oral, antibiotics. If a pharmacist sent you to the herbal section rather than referring you to be tested by a physician or clinic, then they ought to be reported. That is horrifying to me. I do hope you misunderstood. ...Read more

I'm scheduled to have surgery soon. Is there any way that I can find out in advance the names of every medication I'll be receiving? Who do I contact?

I'm scheduled to have surgery soon. Is there any way that I can find out in advance the names of every medication I'll be receiving? Who do I contact?

No way : Unfortunately, there is no way on predict which medications you will need, and even those that are common are given by different doctors. Anesthesia specifically is not uniform among anesthesiologists. Best to share your concerns with your surgeon before you get to the hospital. They should be able to ease your mind, and let you know more about the local process. Hope this helps! ...Read more

What is the safest/best thing for a newborn to sleep in straight home from the hospital, for the first several months? I am confused with the choices

What is the safest/best thing for a newborn to sleep in straight home from the hospital, for the first several months? I am confused with the choices

Newborn sleep: Yes, there indeed are many options for newborns to sleep in. Let me explain what we want, and then choose based on this. The baby needs a firm surface in an uncluttered environment. No bumper pads, pillows or stuffed animals. Ideally, not loose blankets - can place in a sleep sack or newborn sleeper. These can be accomplished with a bassinette, a pack-n-play, a playpen or right into a crib. ...Read more

How long do you recomend someone with 3 herniated discs be out of work for when they were in the hospital for it and gor an epideral for it?

Clarification: Depends on symptoms and kind of work that you do. If one can modify work for light duty, you should be able to return to work in a few days. This might be a good question to clarify with the provider doing the injection. I try to reseve sick days off from work, for in case you need to recuperate after surgery. ...Read more

Indian visiting US for 2/3 months. What can I take to settle sudden tooth pain. Will be easier to get it treated once I return to my country?

Indian visiting US for 2/3 months. What can I take to settle sudden tooth pain. Will be easier to get it treated once I return to my country?

In agreement: I can certainly understand that it is easier to treat your problem back in your homeland. The fact is that your problem may not be able to wait that long. OTC pain meds can help, but if you have an infection or an exposed nerve, then treatment cannot be put off. There are excellent dentists here in the US, and you just might have to visit one very soon. ...Read more
