Anaesthetic Question

I am scheduled to have surgery on Monday. When I went to the pre-op clinic yesterday, I was told that I had conflicting anaesthetic conditions.

Girlfriend keeps pushing me away

Hello,

It all started last last January when she was diagnosed with MS. Since then the relationship has been rocky. She is very distanced and constantly pushing me away.

Injecting in the arm

I was just wondering, for people who inject in the upper arm, does it hurt? I have been thinking of doing this but am a bit worried of it hurting? ( After almost 4years, I still cannot do it myself)

I'm starting to notice very slight scarring on my thighs so was abit worried of permanently damaging/scarring muscle tissue.

Thank you
H

I just received this month's Prevention Magazine. There is an article in it about 3 women who used alternative therapies for their various ailments. At the end of the article Prevention Magazine is asking readers to share their experiences about using alternative/unconventional therapies via a chat. This is a great way to get the word out about any alternative therapies that any of you have used that you have felt have been beneficial to you. ...

Stem Cell Research Is Growing Again

Scientists in stem cell breakthough

That second one is about part-human, part-animal hybrid stem cells. I am thinking maybe they can turn people with MS into mice so they can benefit from all the drug trials we hear about.
