Re: Covid 19 vaccine

WOW I am surprised that folks here on a science based forum are fed up with Dr. Fauci ???? He seems to be one of the few voices of science and reason in the maelstrom of what we call our current government "leadership" Our country, the USA, has now one of the WORST infection rates and mort...

Re: CEA Confusion

The test labs should quote their reference ranges along with the measured values. Different labs ( demographic regions etc.) can have different "normal" ranges AND there are a number of different test methodologies, each having their own range of normals etc. Trends are important, in that ...

Re: Anemia -- how have you dealt with it?

There are also bone marrow stimulants which you could discuss with your doctors( Eprex, erythrpoietin ) which act on red blood cell production the way neulasta acts of white blood cell production. Iron and B vitamin injections may be needed but only if you are deficient in them to start with. You is...

Re: Help. Squirt bottle recommendations?

If you do use a bidet at home, then maybe consider looking at a BioBidet travel unit ? https://biobidet.com/products/tp-70-new-travel-bidet I believe others here have talked about this in the past. I have a bidet at home so have not looked into their at home bidet toilet seats, yet ! I agree with &q...

Re: Best Prep for Colonoscopy - Pepopik worked for a wimpy me!

I bought a 2 pack box of Pico Salax today at a Shoppers Drug Mart for about $28 Cdn. Google the Canadian website and availability for more info. I do not use online pharmacies, but WalMart, Costco, Shoppers, London Drugs, Rexall, Pharmasave are all shown to carry it as well as many grocery chain sto...

Re: Best Prep for Colonoscopy - Pepopik worked for a wimpy me!

The original Pico Salax powder sachets continue to be available in Canada at their reasonable price point. Why the US regulatory bodies seem to have a problem getting this item to patients at a reasonable cost, defies logic. I have not tried the new version in a bottle, but see no reason to start no...

Re: Dr Henry Lynch

It is always very sad when we lose pioneers in the medical fields.
They have dedicated themselves to helping many and while I do not have Lynch syndrome
I know a number of people who have benefited from being aware they had it,
and were able to take proactive measures.

RIP Dr. Lynch

Re: Tightness in hips-radiation?

I had 6 week radiation before surgery and also have a long history of lower back hip and gluteal tightness. I exercised a lot and also tried chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and true physiotherapy/rehab. Everything helped a bit, but nothing did it all. I also tried muscle relaxants and anti-inflam...
