Tip of the Day


An Ounce of Prevention
Acetaminophen--the pain reliever found in medications such as Tylenol--has even more power than previously thought: It reduces a woman's risk of ovarian cancer.

A joint study between Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School showed that longtime, regular use (1 to 6 tablets per week for at least 6 months) of acetaminophen appears to reduce a woman's risk of ovarian cancer by up to 60%. Even better, daily use (1 tablet per day) of acetaminophen for more than 10 years appears to reduce the risk by up to 80%. The study did not assess precise doses (i.e., regular or extra-strength tablets).

Women at high risk for the disease, such as those who have a family history of ovarian cancer, should talk to their doctor about making acetaminophen part of their risk-reduction program.

OK Charlie bear with me!I'm new to bb's and don't really know how to do this. I saw some of your comments relating to ibs and gallbladder probs and can't get back to where I saw them!So, I'm asking here instead!In Oct. I had what I'm sure was a gb attack. All the symptoms fit.By the time I got to a dr (2 weeks) the severe pain was gone and I was just left not feeling well. Had ultrasound, hida, liver tests--all slightly less than normal but not bad (hida 29%). Now the "yucky" feeling is returning, without the sharp pains in stomach and shoulderblades. More like a radiating pain in mid-back and under ribs. Feel like I need to "stretch it out" all the time. Could it be gb? In addition, I think I have ibs and didn't know it was for real. I've suffered for about 5 years and thought it was all in my head until I read about other people suffering as I am. Are ibs and gb probs related?

Hi km
you wroteHad ultrasound, hida, liver tests--all slightly less than normal but not bad (hida 29%). Now the "yucky" feeling is returning, without the sharp pains in stomach and shoulderblades
===========================================
my question is did you have the cck part of the hida test?
also 29% is below the 35% to pass.
think of it this way,starting from 100%
100% looks good huh! well from what i have seen most people could empty out at 50-60 45%
etc,but 100-60-45-35 and your 29% i think that is why you are getting g/b symptoms.
now they set a limit at 35% to pass.
if you did not get the CCK part that could be lower.
as for the yucky and shoulder pain you bet it is a sign, my shoulder was sore for months
but remember i scored 0 on my test.
so from the looks of your test you are gatting down the scale, so keep a eye on your symptoms
anyways good luck
charlie
