Q:

How long will I have to wait for valve surgery?

A:

Your current diagnosis and medical condition will be carefully considered in determining the timing of your valve surgery. Some people have surgery done right away at the time of diagnosis if their symptoms warrant it, and others are able to wait a few weeks or months and have the surgery done as an elective procedure. If you are waiting for valve surgery and experience new or changing symptoms, speak with your physician.

Q:

How do I make sure the insulin I inject is getting into the fat in my body?

A:

When you inject insulin, your goal is to get the needle tip into the fat layer underneath your skin. This will allow the insulin to be well absorbed. If your needle is too long, or you don't have a lot of fat at your injection site, you may actually push the needle in past the fat and it will end up in the muscle.

Q:

What happens during a pap smear?

A:

During a pap smear, your doctor will insert a device called a speculum into the vagina and then spread it slightly to allow the cervix to be visible. Then a small brush is inserted through the open speculum to scrape off a few cells from the cervix. The cells are smeared onto a slide and examined for concerning cell changes that need further assessment.
