Certainly you can . Take a look at my Profile. I may have another one yet! Who Knows? For what it's worth, I think diet & lifestyle are secondary to fitness. I hate to advise anyone anything but if I had to, I'd say (1) take the Cardio Rehab course (2) take the Advanced Rehab course, (3) join a Fitness Club and become Really fit and healthy, then (4) gently, regularly, stay that way.

doctor1 MD

He just had a quintuple coranary arterial bypass, he s 78, has hepatitis C , a thyroid problem , has had liver cancer - they decided to do the operation at high risk but a little while after he developed acute renal and as well as liver failure and is currently on life support - they ve been telling us to expect the worse and are thinking of taking him off, the chances of him surviving are low aren t they ? Well he s a consultant surgeon himself, and given that all his arteries were blocked and he could go anyday he did not want to live with that uncertainty.

Hello, I am a 39 year old female. I received my second ever kenalog shot for allergies over a week ago. The one previous was a year prior to that. In the past 3 days I have been experiencing heart palpitaions the entire day and night. I have had palpiations for years now, but only once in a while. The palpitions I am now experiencing are continuous. I had been tested about five years ago and was told I had tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation. Several years later a different doctor sent me for testing and it showed no regurgitation. It doesnt make sense to me. My question is do you think it is possible the palpitations are caused by the kenalog? I was put back on Singulair as well but stopped taking it to see if that was the culprit. I am uneasy with this feeling and it is stressing me out more so worrying about it. Thank you in advance.

My 89 year old father just had a triple bypass and valve replacement. He lost kidney function after the surgery. They are now wanting him to go to a long term acute center, I m guessing because his heart rate registers low in the upper 40 s to mid 50 s. how long can I expect him to last on dialysis
