Fri, Jun 19 6:48am · Fodmap Eating Plan in Digestive Health

It’s good to meet with a dietician first. This is a medical diet and changes are made systematically.

So much of what you wrote is true for me also. My husband’s doctor wants him on an all fish diet. We also occasionally eat low fat turkey. I have been doing really well since we eliminated red meat.

I’m replying to myself. Dr. Poland also said use a paper towel to open doors and to turn the water faucet on and off.

Thanks, the gloves are cleaning only. I realize gloves are not recommended except in special circumstances like food handlers. I watched a Mayo podcast this morning with Dr. Poland, who is a viralogist. He said unless the toilet lid is down before and after using the toilet, viruses will be all over the room. It was in reference to stool. Air mattress? I would love to give that up. The bed is a soft surface, so virus should be gone within the three days that the room is empty. Do I have that right? I would still bring my own pillows and get rid of the bedspread. Dr. Poland says he sprays the bottom of his shoes when he comes home and they stay in his garage.

This is news to me. Maybe you are talking about a different campus? We are going to Mayo Scottsdale.

We are going to Mayo Clinic on Monday and Tuesday. They will greet us at the door, ask screening questions, and give us a mask. But what steps are we taking? I called the motel for reservations. The room we will get has been empty for three days. The person taking our card will have a plastic shield between us. We are bringing our air mattress, pillows, sheet, cotton blanket. We are bringing spray bottle of bleach and gloves for both of us. We will clean all hard surfaces. We have a good refrigerator in our car, so we are bringing our own food, drinks, and utensils. We will bring our own glasses. We are bringing a trash bag for our trash and extra toilet paper. We are going to put our tv clicker in a ziplock bag, We will ask that no one come in our room. I’m more worried about enclosed spaces at Mayo. Although all will be wearing masks, who’s to say someone didn’t cough or sneeze in the elevator? Also, the latest Medscape had an article about fecal transmission. Is it safe to go in their bathrooms? I’m looking forward to hearing from others about their tips.

Hello. I will respond to the part of your story that I can relate to. My primary doc also pushed prolia . I went to Mayo Clinic for a second opinion. I now take once yearly infusion of Reclast. I’m taking the final of the three infusions in May and I hope that will be my last one for many years. I have no side effects from the infusion. I hope this helps.

Fri, Mar 13 11:56am · Brain injury and Cognitive testing in Brain & Nervous System

I’m a former school psychologist. I have had a similar experience. I’m learning to weave and was making some projects that pleased me. Then I went hiking and had a fall. They did brain imaging and that checked out okay, but I definitely had a period of time when I was having problems with weaving. With time, and what patience I could muster, I am now back to where I was and am learning new things. I think psychometric testing is a good idea. It’s a good baseline for the future. I implore you to go to a certified clinical psychologist. The psychologist should do the testing and interpretation. Do not go to a place that uses untrained, uncertified “ technicians”. Don’t assume, ask. You will probably be in the room for three hours or so. Some questions will be too easy and some will be too hard, but most will be doable. That is the nature of psychometric testing. The testing may reveal a learning style or other information that you can use in your quilting. I hope things go well for you in your quilting. It is such a wonderful creative outlet, and the socialization and learning you do is good for your brain. And I too would love to see a picture.
