This sounds more like a reaction to the anesthetic than a true health problem. At least from the information you listed. Did your doctor tell you you have a heart problem? If not it was a reaction to the surgery. My wife is a nurse who cares for a variety of patients. She says she hopes you had all of your female parts removed to eliminate the chance of cancer spreading. All you can do now is take lots of time with your children and teach them to be the best people they can be. That way if you leave them they will have had a good foundation to help them live a good life as adults. If you can afford it, buy some more life insurance to help them in case you die. We have annuities that we can collect even if we live to be old! Good luck.........

My wife has been taking insugen (Biocon) 30/70 24 units in the morning and 16 units at night but her sugar levels are still not coming in noral range. She has been taking this for quite some time now and the doctor keeps increasing the dosage. Do we need to change to a different brand if this one has stopped working.

My gynecologist prescribed vitamin d 50,000 unit to take every two weeks, but my regular MD advised me not to take it because it could cause calcium build up around my heart. I have a family history of heart problems in my family. I do not know where to take it or not.

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.

Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.

Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?

Other drug that I take;

- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg

- Plavix 1 x 75 mg

- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.

Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

Hi, it has been a week now since I donated blood and there is terrible bruising along the side and right above where they placed the needle. There is also a stiff tightening pain as I move my arm that goes from my elbow up towards my shoulder. I ve taken aspirin and ibuprofen occasionally to try and ease the pain but nothing has helped. I even tried icing it on and off the first few days after, which was recommended by our American Red Cross donation center. Should I be concerned?

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.

My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.

Thank you.
