Re: Possibly unnecessary open liver surgery

Your hubby is so lucky to have a supportive spouse. Good luck with the surgery. Boston is a charming city, I enjoyed it every time I was there. Quincy market is one of the must visit place. :)

Re: Liver spot seen on CT...Should I be concerned??

A lot of people have spots on liver which are simple cysts, and they are never aware of. For liver, MRI is more accurate than CT.

Try to get some rest when you can, even 15 min or 30 min. There is a lot on our shoulder as caregiver, we need to take care of ourselves.

Hope your trip back home smooth.

I am a stress eater, and I've ate too much candies lately - not good. Very few family and friends know what we...

Re: 30-40 Grams of Fiber Per Day !!!

Found this calculator which might be helpful. http://www.webmd.com/diet/healthtool-fiber-meter
