I certainly hope so: Post-concussion syndrome, as you can attest to, can be challenging to treat. Treatment can include medications, avoiding triggers, neuropsychological treatment, tincture of time and making sure there are not other causes of your symptoms.

Every night after taking prenatal tablet I vomit in 1 hr. Will the tablet stay inside or go with vomiting?

Every night after taking prenatal tablet I vomit in 1 hr. Will the tablet stay inside or go with vomiting?

Stays inside: You indicated that you're a male, and yet you're taking a prenatal vitamin. Not that there's anything wrong with that...They're fine for men too. The vitamin will have been absorbed within an hour. There's no reason to take another. And even if you were to miss a dose, it wouldn't be a big deal...It's just a vitamin. ...Read more

My milk is not enough for my1month old baby so igive him formula120ml. But to fall asleep he still needs me tobreastfeed him. Well he eats a lot. Normal?

Babies vary!: The best way to know if your baby is getting enough is through his growth. If a baby is growing and gaining normally, he's likely getting enough. You can also gain information through the number of wet diapers your baby is putting out (6-8 wet diapers per day is pretty common). Your baby may like the breast feeding at night because of the extra warmth and contact that only you can give him! ...Read more

My daughter fell into an end table dancing around. She is 2. Here cheek has. Swelled a bit no blood a little scrape. Should I take her to dr?

Call the doc: Sorry, this question shouldn't be answered here. There is too much info to be garnered and this is the wrong forum for acute medical issues. I would call his doc immediately and run the scenario by them, and follow advice. ...Read more

Full thickness tear of the ACl and "Bucket handell tear of the medial meniscus. Is it possible to not go into operation, and only conservative soluti?

Full thickness tear of the ACl and "Bucket handell tear of the medial meniscus. Is it possible to not go into operation, and only conservative soluti?

Poss surgery: The bucket handle tear of the meniscus will likely cause you problems - should probably be dealt with via arthroscopic approach. The ACL tear can wait - do PT and make a decision later if you want to have an ACL reconstruction done. Not everyone needs ACL repair - talk to your doctor about the pros and cons. ...Read more

Thx dr harsell. The liver met is 8cm and 7 cm, person at present weak and no appetite. Can anything b done to the mets to stop bilirubin going up? Not now suitable for chemo

Liver mets: Single liver mets can be resected surgically and improve survival. A few mets can sometimes be treated with RFA (radio-frequency ablation) if a person is a potential transplant recipient or highly symptomatic. Per-cutaneous drainage of dilated bile ducts might also reduce symptoms. Maybe hospice care could be consulted for other end of life options. ...Read more

GF ejaculated me & I came. Not sure if cum got on my hands but I washed my hands twice after, then dried off. I then fingered her. Will GF get pregnant?

GF ejaculated me & I came. Not sure if cum got on my hands but I washed my hands twice after, then dried off. I then fingered her. Will GF get pregnant?

You're safe: No, that sequence shouldn't result in pregnancy. You are safe and don't have anything to worry about. Sperm aren't very hardy and even water alone can kill the sperm because its cell wall is weak. ...Read more

I am looking for a neurologist in Tennessee. I have been to Vanderbilt/Howell Allen Clinic/Mid state neurosurgery. Schwannoma in entirety of S1 root.

I see your 3rd post: I referred your post to an HT neurologist, but your case needs a team of folks looking at your scans and planning a course of treatment.
Vandy is an excellent tertiary care system.
