Sep 27, 2017 · Muscle Loss in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Perhaps it may be more beneficial for you to do fewer repetitions with the weights you use now. And do those reps slowly, 3 sets of 10, lifting up faster than lowering the weights. I just was discharged from physical therapy for foot drop (a side result of hip reconstruction surgery) and need to gain muscle mass in my left leg. Therapists had to give up because I couldn’t make any more progress with that foot. I have, however, done lots of arm and shoulder exercises in the past after shoulder replacement. The key to building the bicep muscle mass is to start slowly and add to the weights and repetitions (also slowly). Do your exercises daily. It will come! Sharon (the Bionic Woman)

It just seems like it would be much easier for all those following groups to have the most recent post first rather than going to the end of the comments, wherever that may be (wastes a little bit of time). Might try the email way, if that takes you to the post itself – although you seemed to indicate that it doesn’t.

I’m relatively new here, but when I read that there were 6 updates, for example, to the Bones, Joints & Muscles Group, I have to go all the way to the end to find the most recent comments. Is this something I can change in my profile?

Unfortunately I couldn’t hear the broadcast. I guess I’ll have to buy a good speaker to attach to my laptop. Videos come in loud and clear, but since this was live, it may not have come through as loudly. I’ll listen again after I get the speaker. Thanks for including me.

May 8, 2017 · Video Q&A about Genetic risk factors for breast, gynecological cancer in Breast Cancer

I had a vaginal hysterectomy at age 49, and as I was about to be discharged, my surgeon came in and told me that they had found a malignant tumor in the wall of my uterus. It was classified as endometrial cancer. I had external and internal radiation, no chemo. My two daughters are approaching the same age, and both have had the same type of menstrual problems as I had. They both had ablations about 10 years ago, which I never had with my serious period problems. I am concerned that they could develop cancer without the same symptoms I had (extremely painful, clotted bleeding) since they haven’t menstruated since the procedures.
