We need a DIY medical section


With the expense of seeing a doctor, for US people, or the wait times here in Canada, more and more people are deciding to DIY when it comes to their health. I think we could really use a DIY medical forum.

For example, they sell DIY Gastric Bypass kits:

This is a new but growing trend!

Haha I actually saw that too. The first thing I thought is "Do people actually buy that?"

And, it's genuine! LOL

Has all that snow up yonder done touched y'all on the head? LOL
Seriously, I've been suffering through kidney stones, Foley cathetors, cystoscopes and stents. All I want to know is, why do some Doctors have less bedside manners than a billy goat?

.
hopefully it was the ureter. In the first 1 1/2" of attachment of your urethra to the bladder is called the prostatic urethra and if they took that out, you had a prostatectomy.

In other word; ureter runs from the kidneys into the bladder. Urethra runs out of the bladder.

but what are they doing to remove the stones? I would have serious concerns about that many procedures with no success.

The stone(one large one is gone)
The last three procedures were for scar tissue and removing the section of ureter from the kidney to the bladder.

Like the docter said, my kidny works, but I had a plumbing problem.

Is a colonoscopy really something you can do at home?
At least itís USB 2.0 compatible for faster data transfer.

I was hoping it's the small end that goes in, but that's the USB plug.

Personally, I prefer this for DIY colonoscopy:

THEN use it to find out why that colon problem has also blocked the toilet. Order of procedure is important.

Also works for endoscopies, but again, order is vital, do the endoscopy first!
