Who do you talk to, the nurse when the doctor doesn't tell you about informed consent.?

Who do you talk to, the nurse when the doctor doesn't tell you about informed consent.?

Another doctor: If your doctor hasn't made arrangements to properly inform you about the risks, benefits and alternatives to surgery as well as other important things like what the scars will be like, how to care for incisions or physical restrictions post-op, then it is probably time to see another doctor unless you are on death's door. It's the doctor's responsibility, not the nurse's! ...Read more

Was talking to a nurse friend and she says generally, female fetuses are often miscarried than males. True? So if miscarriage happens, it's a girl?

Was talking to a nurse friend and she says generally, female fetuses are often miscarried than males. True? So if miscarriage happens, it's a girl?

BS: Miscarriage is thought to occur in as many as 25% of conceptions. Many do not get far along enough to implant, some are shed before recognition of pregnancy, others well into pregnancy. Chromosomal defects are seen in many when tissue is analysed. Males and females are both miscarried. Since the material is often not available for study, exact male/female ratio is not known. ...Read more

Talked to the doctor nurse on phone yesterday and she says that I would probaly be safe and do a partial mastectomy since there unsure what it is woul?

What prompted that?: If you have had an abnormal mammogram, a biopsy of some form is likely the next step. If you had a biopsy, the details of the pathology should be discussed with a general surgeon to determine your options for what, if anything, still needs to be done. Mastectomy of any nature (partial modified etc.) is usually for cancer. ...Read more

Colonoscopy Wednesday, Dr didn't talk to me, only told my sister it went well. Nurse didn't tell me much just that a biopsy was done. Why so tight lipp?

Is imagining seeing nurses in the dark and hearing them talking to you a sign of a brain tumor?

Is imagining seeing nurses in the dark and hearing them talking to you a sign of a brain tumor?

Not necessarily: The kind of problems you are describing can be attributed to many kinds of medical problems. I would suggest that you see your family medicine or internal medicine physician to discuss what is happening, give a complete medical history, undergoe a complete medical exam which will probaby include some blood work---and then this can be more accurately assessed. Many causes can explain this. ...Read more

I used a facial hair removal cream last night which caused a superficial chemical burn I called an advice nurse who talk me to call poison control and I did but she told me to just rinse my face with cool water for 20 minutes and just keep it moisturize

This could be: An allergic reaction to one or more ingredient of the cream or one of the side effect of the cream. Since the involved area is your face which is one of the most important visible part of the body I suggest to you to go to an Urgent care or ER if you can get a hold of your doctor by phone.

Singing / chanting: Fyi: perhaps you have discovered that when you sing or when you chant (not that you probably do either all that often!), you don't stutter. It's interesting; apparently singing and chanting tap into different parts of the brain (not the speech center that is activated when you speak). I have worked with several psychotherapy patients who appeared to "outgrow" their stuttering. ...Read more
