Re: bend over penn state

The Jim Jordan bit is controversial, the doctor being a complete creep is not. But he's dead, fortunately for him.

Re: Cardiac calcium score - reversing heart disease

I am going to take a bit of a contrary position - I don't think a stress test or CCTA / cardiac cath are currently warranted. If you are training without symptoms, you have a vanishingly small chance of having a blockage big enough to need a stent to hold it open. Could you have a small calcified pl...

Re: Blood Work Services

Agree. Very few docs understand the concept of pre-test probability and the dangers of overly sensitive testing.

Re: Bright on Netflix

Loved it. I think it punched way above it's weight. David Ayer makes entertaining movies. It reminded me of Shadowrun, if anyone remembers that, from my secret nerd past. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadowrun Man, I loved the Shadowrun concept. The gaming system, meh, but this will pretty much se...

Welcome to a brief look into my world.

Glad you are OK. I may have missed it in the piece - did you get an echocardiogram of your heart?

Re: Anyone tear a hip labrum?

I was hoping for a torn labrum, but turns out I had worn down to bone on bone arthritis, ended up with hip resurfacing (instead of replacement). Agree with prep glute work, perhaps deadlifting off of pins to keep the posterior chain going without the stress on the hip capsule from dropping deep into...

Re: do you get a flu shot?

Flu shot. Every year, would even if it weren't required and free. I put people on life support every frickin' year that turn out to have the flu. The "I get the flu when I get the flu shot" argument. No, you don't. The flu shot engenders an immune reaction, a distant early warning for your lymphocyt...

One of the guys in my department is actually doing a study comparing accuracy of these vs. medical monitors. None of these have been validated for this purpose.

Re: A Question About Weight Loss Drugs for a Doctor

I was on phentermine alone, which is an amphetamine analog (prescribed, regulated, all above board) for three months. Dropped 30 pounds effortlessly, mostly through appetite suppression. Rebounded with a vengeance when I came off. Wife said I turned mean, I made many impulsive decisions - mania in a...

Re: Full Knee Replacement: who has had it done or knows a thing or two?

Your knee is trashed. It will not get any less trashed over time. If you were going to get any response from the synvisc, you would have seen it already. From a numbers standpoint, sure, you are going to be at risk for needing a revision in the future. From the surgeon's standpoint, that is the prim...

Re: Med professionals: ? On ethics

adderall and xanax...fun stuff. No med board in the country will see that as legitimate. First time offenders will usually get a reprimand, possibly a fine, and may have to take a CME course on ethics.

Re: Med professionals: ? On ethics

Most medical boards allow for "time limited illness" - prescribing a course of antibiotics, or anti-puke meds. But long term meds should be handled by an objective 3rd party. Controlled substances - no frickin' way.
