Define "partial": What do you mean by a "partial" hysterectomy? This term, partial, has been mis-used and can be confusing. If you mean that you had your uterus removed, but your cervix remains, that is more accurately termed a supra-cervical hysterectomy. The cervix that is left behind may still have tissue in the canal that can bleed with your cycles. The best way to find out is to have an exam to confirm. ...Read more

Baby 14months ago, and my episiotomy still hurts sometimes. It almost feels too tight when I wipe &, drying off after a shower I have to pat dry.
I have been recovering from back to back concussions for over a year and yesterday someone patted my head four times kinda hard and it still hurts?
Scalp pain: May take a year to resolve. If you injured a cutaneous nerve and it tried to regrow from its origin and came up against an obstacle (such as scar tissue between the skull and skin) It may form a neuroma. If this is the case tenderness may persist for years. These are issues that are of course separate from the myriad cognitive / behavioral issues that may arise following a single TBI. ...Read more

My niece has scarlett fever I have a 7 month old. Is it dangerous to have the baby around my neice or people that have been in contact with my niece?
Not so much: If you have the label then the kid has been diagnosed & should be on treatment. Unless the kid had close contact with the 7mo it would be hard for it to get the Strep A infection that causes it. Contact during the early symptom phaze or 1st 24 hrs on meds would be the vulnerable period. If so the baby would get the rash too. Contact with saliva would be the mode of transfer, not from being nearby. ...Read more

I've been going to the bathroom and when I wipe, my vagina gets itchy afterward? Should I pat dry instead?
When I sit my baby up and pat her back, she usually burps and spits up, but only a little bit. Is that normal?
Spit ups are common: Small amounts of spit ups are very common in infants, due mostly in part to their anatomy. Since the esophageal sphincter is not as well developed for the first few months, they are at an anatomical disadvantage for keeping milk in the stomach. If not associated with poor weight gain, projectile vomiting or severe distress, spit ups are not cause for concern. ...Read more
