I have been struggling for well over a yr since open shoulder repairs, with now chronic pain and fatique, odd m.S.-like symptoms. Can surg do this?

Not Likely: The symptoms sound serious enough that you should get a thorough evaluation. The symptoms don't sound like a post surgical syndrome, but possibly you contracted a chronic slow growing infection while in hospital. Mycoplasma is one candidate, and resistant strains have been found increasingly in hospitals. Get checked out. ...Read more

After 3/4 doses of misoprotol, my symptoms of mc haven't changed. What should I do if it doesn't work? Tissue is at my cervix, but it is barely open

A few ideas: I'm guessing that your doctor gave you instructions regarding how to take the Misoprostol and it wouldn't be my place to interfere with your doctor's instructions. If the Misoprostol doesn't cause complete evacuation of the uterus, then your doctor may recommend either additional doses of the medication or a dilation and curettage. I'm sorry you're going through this, I wish you the best. ...Read more

If I apply desoximetasone 0.25% cream over an open wound will that cause toxic symptoms since it can get into bloodstream?

A wound can become worse and cause systemic illness if it is left untreated or improperly treated. ...Read more
