dkapustin @dkapustin 10 DAYS seems like a long time. Maybe its the type of long bandaid that Dr. puts on? Leaving the Hospital – @ 4 different PA, Nurses, personnel, etc. said "Don't get it wet" to avoid infection! Then I was allowed a shower after 3? days. How long b4 post op? Maybe you Dr. is Old Fashioned ?

I had RESTOR put into left eye. $7000. My money, around 2007/8 please read: https://us.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=iry&hsimp=yhs-estor+lens // Dr. Barry Wolstan ruined my left eye forever. his contact number is 310-543-4546.
RESTOR LENS put in, then I had to enlarge my text to 24 point bold on laptop. B4 : 8pt light, 6 point light type face. He said how great it was! a pretense. Tried to talk me into getting r eye done for more $$$$. I did not fall for that. He sent me to Dr. ( Head of Jules Stein, UCLA) had it taken out. Now when I am in my AZ home – sometimes dry air hurts my eye, also dust. I must wear an eye patch or keep left eye closed then get up and finish house work. Im a Graphic Designer – who used to b happy with my near sightedness. Making fine lines, reading 5-6 pt type etc. Also, same happened to good v-ball player, she Had Both eyes done by Wolstan. She would go for the ball and her depth perception was screwed up. She had to give up v-ball. Depth perception off by bout a foot.

Dec 26, 2018 · Cost of stem cell therapy at Mayo in Bones, Joints & Muscles

@jimmiejoe IN UK: where? which city? which Drs.? Which medical facility? How much money? do they take fat out of belly OR PLACENTA/ UMBILICAL CORD? PLACENTA/ UMBILICAL CORD IS SUPPOSED TO B THE BEST. My Dr. said its possible to get more cells out of Fat then out of bone.
I'm so fearful of Dr. taking Anything out of my bones.
Some time ago Thomas Chen, MD
Hematology Medical Oncology
Banner Del E Webb Medical Center drilled 3 holes in back of hip bone – GAVE ME NOTHING FOR PAIN! There had to b a way to not have to endure having bone punctured? Later I enjoyed that Dr. Chen talked to me for 20 min. on the phone. But, I'll never forget that PAIN.

Dec 17, 2018 · groin in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Thanks for all responses – Boswell hospital in Sun City DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM. Extreme pain and yelling when getting CAT and Xray! So PT at home – she took a tennis ball – put on groin bone and pressed it w a weight. For 2 weeks of yelling, dreadful pain – went to Internist again – MRI – Dr. office told me I have a fracture – go to ER. Hip replacement 11/20 – healed w awesome speed. 3 days post op, went down a full flight of stairs and back up, walked without walker.
If u want to hear about Banner Del Webb hospital in Sun City West — ( Nurse Sharon told me -after trying to get help to go to bathroom for 35 minutes – to Pee in bed) That was 4th floor, 5th floor had better personnel.
Great surgeon from Core, Dr. Moore, Told to walk a lot now.
