Please help! what is the name of the drug they give you right before undergoing surgery that puts you to sleep?

Please help! what is the name of the drug they give you right before undergoing surgery that puts you to sleep?

It depends: The drug that "puts you to sleep" is usually (but not always) propofol. However, there are many other drugs given before right before you fall asleep, so Propofol might not be the drug you are referring to. Also, there are many alternatives to propofol, so it truly depends. ...Read more

What are the risks to having a Brazilian keratin treatment (bkt) procedure when pregnant?

What are the risks to having a Brazilian keratin treatment (bkt) procedure when pregnant?

Too many!: Looking good & staying healthy need not be mutually exclusive goals, & the evidence shows that bkt may not be safe for anyone, least of all pregnant women. I always counsel my patients to very carefully consider what they "feed" not only their mouths, but also their skin and scalp- which are highly vascular and large "consumers" of products. Most products are never going to be tested on preggos.. ...Read more

What happens if I had the choice to deliver natural instead of C-section should i?

No choice: Vaginal delivery vs c/section is not a choice. Either the obstetrical situation is such that a vaginal delivery should be the mode of delivery, or it is such that the baby should be delivered by c/section. ...Read more

How dangerous is it and what are the risk of getting your tubes tied during csection? How effective is it? Any birth control just as effective? Thanks

How dangerous is it and what are the risk of getting your tubes tied during csection? How effective is it? Any birth control just as effective? Thanks

Simple: Tube tying at time of c-section is done very commonly and is very safe. Current recent recommendation is to remove the entire tube including the fimbria to decrease future risk of ovarian cancer. This removes quite a large portion of tube and is likely extremely effective. Iuds (especially Mirena (levonorgestrel) & skyla), depo-provera and Nexplanon are all extremely effective as well. ...Read more

I am told that the only option open to me is to have my coccyx removed. Can you give me an idea as to the long term effects of this procedure?

I am told that the only option open to me is to have my coccyx removed. Can you give me an idea as to the long term effects of this procedure?

Depends: Coccygectomy is an uncommon procedure. The purpose of the surgery is pain relief in patients who have otherwise failed all other treatment options - so the primary long term effect is pain relief, if the surgery has no complications. It may take months for the pain to completely resolve. Like all spinal procedures, there is no guarantee of pain relief. ...Read more

Both : Both the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud and the ius are the same type of device; a long-acting hormone device placed in the uterus. The effectiveness is for 5 years. Having initial pain and bleeding is normal. The first weeks are painful and the patient usually needs initially a stronger pain medication and then milder medication such as ibuprofen. Irregular bleeding usually occurs for 2-2 months and then the patient usually has little to no bleeding for 5 years. Risks of the device include expulsion (the device coming out, which is rare), or infection. Most women do not have weight gain. ...Read more
