teekayo: Pls I need a PEP for a HIV exposure risk...it was yesterday (sat)...I think I need it latest tomorrow...PLS how and where can I get one fast... I'm in lagos. Thank you
Visit PEPFAR clinic in your centre OR any ARV center near you. I almost had needle prick when I was setting up IV line on my RVD pxt 2 days ago. Her vein was colapsed and very difficult to access. What saved me was that I double-gloved as well as my dry and rough skin. grin However, I took no chance sha. I immediately degloved and rinsed my hand vigourously with soap and clean water. I inspected the site and there was no point of needle prick. I Could not express any blood from the suspected site too. Then I put on another glove. Finished setting up the line and reported to PEP center in where I work. After thorough assessment, I told that there was no evidence of exposure. I was really scared!

Pls doctor, i need an advice on behalf of a elderly man. He is in pain. He complains of abdominal pains, experienced blood in urine, once. He also complained of not urinating normally some times. He was on self medication when i met him and had to stop him. He cried he has been to the hospital, but they did not give him the necessary care. Pls, what could be the cause of these symptoms, because am afraid it could be kidney or liver defect. He's been on self medication even before these problem

Your comment grabbed my attention. So I must give u an outright response.

In an elderly man who complains of abdominal pain(maybe flank pain), hematuria(blood in urine); there is only one diagnosis that I must consider first before others. That diagnosis is kidney cancer. In medicine, there is a triad for the diagnosis of kidney cancer. They are:

1. Flank pain

2. Abdominal mass

3. Hematuria.

These 3 symptoms must not be present in kidney cancer. Though they can also occur in kidney stones. But for the fact that he is an elderly patient makes kidney cancer topmost on my list of my differential diagnosis. I will advise that he visits a Teaching hospital to meet a urologist as soon as possible. Kidney diseases can be reversed if detected early. He's doing himself a major disservice by placing himself on self-medication.

Simvastatin just like every other drugs has its side effect. They are abdominal pain, diarrhea, indigestion, and a general feeling of weakness, joint pain, memory loss, and muscle cramps. It can also cause Cholestatic hepatitis, hepatic cirrhosis, muscle-wasting conditions(rhabdomyolysis), etc. It is mostly used in combination with exercise and weight reduction. You may not experience any of these side effects. I will advise u to delay its use until after your exams.

achi_cares: Please doc. I easily forget, could you recommend a drug which i can take for it? And what cud be the cause?
It's against the medical ethics to prescribe for a patient I've not examined. Moreover, here is a medical advice thread. I suggest that u visit a hospital.

Be content with the size of your organ. Size does not really matter but performance.

Mathematically, u have 25% chance of producing a sickler for every delivery. But life does not obey mathematical rule. So, I will advise u to call of the engagement and look for someone with AA genotype.

No need to be scared. He should arrange to meet a urologist in any teaching hospital near him. The success rate is high for herniorrhaphy in the hand of a specialist. He only have to fear quacks.
