your pain but don’t fear it. You should see a physiotherapist or a doctor because they know the important questions to ask and can coach you on the best road to recovery. And remember – whether you think you are a tough nut or a bit of a softie – your brain considers all credible evidence of danger when it’s producing pain. If you do end up getting an MRI, expect to see the “kisses of time” and remember that they’re normal, even if they have scary names.

Both systems seem to fulfil a role in maintaining the living status of the body organism, perhaps to the point where they are both obvious candidates to sit on top the protective hierarchy of defence mechanisms which the body employs. However, there is one protective function which seems beyond the capabilities of both systems….and that is the detection of, and protection against, external threats which have not yet been actualised on the body.

that, the surgeons & staff were great. Not that it matters, but for the record all three surgeons were women. Hex At , said... I fully agree: speak to the doctor and if the doctor is not interested in listening to you, you should then be interested in finding another physician. By the way, "informed consent" does not mean that the patient is giving consent after having been informed by the doctor. Informed consent also means that the doctor has been informed by the patient just as Hex has provided the example (...) . Remember: "informed consent" goes both ways. Also, of course, the physician has to give "consent to changes in protocol" after being informed by the patient. But to me, this two-way education and two way consent is one of the ethics of the doctor-patient relationship. ..Maurice. At , said...

When I read that a growing number of physicians in the United States are imposing a chaperone for physical examinations, I thought it was a joke at first. I simply could not believe it. My initial reaction was “Gaaaaah (...) ! No! That is so wrong!” This is very uncommon in Canada. I have never heard of any doctor suggesting or imposing this to any patient. Even for intimate examinations or opposite gender doctors. To be fair, I thought maybe things might have changed while I wasn't looking (being cared for by the military, maybe it was different in the “civilian” world) so I asked questions to friends, coworkers and family members. No, things haven't changed. (An “observer” can, however, be imposed by law in rare cases

For example, Dr. Stanley Chung was brought before the College of Physicians and Surgeons on allegations of frequent and unnecessary rectal and genital exams on patients, some of whom were virgins. Further proof is the fact that no charges have been filed in the case of Dr. Stanley Chung or Dr. Nikita Levy (Johns Hopkins). In Memory and suggestibility in the forensic interview (M. L. Eisen, J.

If those of us who have become physicians was aware that all of our potential patients had these criminal behaviors in the back of the patient's minds and that each patient was anticipating that some criminal act was about to happen to them, I doubt most of us would have decided upon a different occupation to avoid serious life-changing consequences if accused of such behaviors.
