The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

I had a d&c for a missed miscarriage and after they told me to go try to use the restroom. When i did blood just poured out of me, is this normal?
Maybe: Some blood may have accumulated in your vagina right after the procedure and that's why it seemed like a lot at the moment. As long as the bleeding didn't continue at that pace, you should be fine. It should be like a period at first and then taper off over the course of 1 to 2 weeks. ...Read more

Don't smoke any more: Depending on how often you smoke weed, it could still be detectable for 2-3 months. There is nothing you can do to speed elimination. If you want a clean drug screen, stopping your use and allowing your body to cleanse itself is your only option. Marijuana may be legal in some states, but employers are still free to fire -- or not hire -- those who test positive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I lost about 20 in one month and I started to noticed my ribs were poping out as if they were out of place .What caused it to happen? Is there a cure?
Go see ur FamilyDoc: Severe dramatic weight loss is not normal. Even if desired, it's very dangerous. So go see your Family Doc for complete evaluation & testing.

Using illicit drugs eg meth, cocaine, etc? Any palpitations (heart racing)? Eyes bulging? ...Read more

Can take up to 1: month to clear all the adult worms and the larvae, as well as the eggs they hatch. The medicine (albendazole? mebendazole?) would destroy the eggs and the worms take a little longer to go through your intestinal system. Have patience. If you still have SYMPTOMS and another 2 weeks pass, you may need an additional dose. Good luck. ...Read more
My whole natural nail even from the inside has lifted off. What do u do now? How long will it take to grow back? I uploaded 2 photos of my nail
Months: I cannot see the photos. I assume you had an injury to your nail. It takes a toenail 6-12 months to grow back, and a fingernail about 6 months. If this wasn't from an injury, the problem that caused the nail to fall off will continue to cause problems. Keep the edges of the nail trimmed to try to keep it from catching and ripping off. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
