Should i be worried if i had pyloric stenosis when i was little?

Should i be worried if i had pyloric stenosis when i was little?

Probably not: Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) affects babies in the first few weeks of life. After surgical correction with pyloromyotomy, babies are basically normal. They can feed fine, and the stomach empties fine. It would be very unusual for a middle-aged adult to have problems referable to having had HPS as a baby. ...Read more

Stop having Sex: The reason humans choose to start birth control is so that they do not have to have paranoid worry about being pregnant. If you are not mature enough to be sexual on birth control and also not to worry then you MUST stop being sexual. Perhaps let your body and brain develop more before you have sex again. Perhaps six sessions with a psychotherapist about your anxiety would be a good idea. ...Read more

I still have a light shadow from a bruise I got months ago. I have a drs appt this week, just wondering if I should be concerned?

No concern: The "staining" from a bruise can take months or even years to clear up. It is not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I am 5 weeks pregnant and I have had three miscareages already so i was wondering if its normal to bleed when you poop?

Not really . . .: Bleeding when you have a bowel movement suggests hemorrhoid, localized tear or even diverticulosis among many possible causes. Go see your family doc regarding this. More importantly, go see your obstetrician for a complete evaluation to determine the cause of your 3 prior miscarriages. Perhaps you have a clotting disorder. Perhaps your Progesterone is too low. Regardless don't wait to go see doc. ...Read more

I just had gallbladder surgery and i haven't urinated since i left the hospital. Should i be worried?

2 P or Not 2 P...: It is not uncommon for your bladder to get a bit "shy" after surgery due to the (pain) medications and anesthesia. If you do not feel the urge to urinate nor pain in the lower abdomen, i wouldn't worry. However, after 12 hours you should feel that urge; if not, i suggest you call your surgeon. ...Read more
