Sensitive sex-offense question. when I was child one man asked: hey boy, come help me . So I came up to him, he was near my house. We entered our home and used a life to go to some floor. Got out, went to staircase. So finally he misused my childhood (I was some 10 y old only), and he forced me to lower my underdress. ... and finally he even dared to take my genital in his mouth! I couldn t expect a man who said : help me could do this rape! I finally ran away from him! Then I have problem - you know doctors say i am in risk group - i think that it was kind of oral sex , or oral rape , or forced oral masturbation etc. And I have no wife no girl to marry, people even mock me - are you gay fo that =-( what to do? I wish I had some holy sword of Jesus to cut his genitals for that...

Yes. Thank you. I have a 12 year old daughter with Vacterl Association. Many health issues...Post-op tetralogy of fallot, tethered cord, imperforate anus, ostomy, spina bifida, residual vsd, (repaired with experimental patch), and recently, large stent placed in left pulmonary artery as it was almost completey blocked due to birth defects that we have missed. Despite all of this, functional, happy, tall....however learning disabilities...terribly artistic....also missing some pieces of her immune system. Is a child like this able to live an almost normal life span? It seems some of our doctors have become immune to her problems as she is still here. I worry she will be overlooked.

My 2-year-old daughter had total repair of Tetralogy of Fallot at six-months-of-age. Now she has a 4 to 6mm ASD and moderate Pulmonary regurgitation. Would it be your decision to close the ASD via Transcatheder Amplatzer Occluder soon......or wait til if/when she has PVR?

My 4 1/2 yo grandson had Tetralogy of Fallot repair at age 6 months. Yesterday he threw up what looked to be all of his stomach contents. He does this at preschool and at Sunday school, too. It seems to happen most often after he s eaten. I m thinking he has to slow down, calm himself before eating anything but he can also throw up when getting too energetic after eating. Am concerned that this is heart-related. He did not require a valve replacement. His surgery was done by Dr. Teodori at Phoenix Children s hospital and he is well respected. There is no follow up visit scheduled until May of next year...should we pursue an appointment before that time?
