2023.05.31 17:02 compliancygroupinfo April 2023 Healthcare Breach Report
Each month, we review healthcare breaches posted on the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) online breach portal to determine the leading causes and how the incidents could have been prevented. The OCR publicly posts healthcare breaches that affected 500 or more individuals to ensure that all affected patients know their information could have been potentially compromised.
Based on the current numbers, April 2023 was a good month for the good guys as only 4,419,577 records containing patients’ protected health information (PHI) were breached, continuing a two-month downward trend. Hacking/IT was the cause of the most significant amount of PHI breached in April 2023, with more than 4,311,642 records.
In April 2023, there were 50 large-scale breaches reported, 29 of which affected healthcare providers. These 29 incidents compromised the PHI of 256,336 individuals, representing 5.8% of patients affected by the April incidents.

2023.05.31 11:31 a4fertility How do I Track the Different Stages of IVF?
In vitro fertilization (IVF)
is a complex assisted reproductive technology (ART) that involves multiple stages, each crucial to the success of the treatment. At A4 Fertility Centre
, we understand the importance of staying informed and involved throughout the IVF process. One innovative approach we use to enhance transparency and patient engagement is remote image witnessing (RI witnessing). In this article, we will discuss the stages of IVF and the role of RI witnessing in tracking the progress of your treatment at A4 Fertility Centre. Stages of IVF: Ovarian stimulation:
The first stage of IVF involves administering medications to stimulate the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. This process usually lasts for 8-14 days and involves regular monitoring through blood tests and ultrasound scans. Egg retrieval:
Once the eggs are mature, a fertility specialist performs a minimally invasive procedure to retrieve the eggs from the ovaries. This is typically done under mild sedation and guided by ultrasound imaging. Fertilization and embryo culture:
The retrieved eggs are then combined with sperm in the laboratory to facilitate fertilization. The resulting embryos are cultured for 3-6 days, depending on their development and the clinic's protocols. Embryo transfer:
Once the embryos reach the appropriate stage of development, one or more are selected for transfer into the uterus. This is a minimally invasive procedure performed under ultrasound guidance. Pregnancy test and follow-up:
Approximately two weeks after the embryo transfer, a blood test is performed to determine if the treatment was successful and pregnancy has been achieved. Role of Remote Image Witnessing:
Remote image witnessing (RI witnessing) is a state-of-the-art technology that allows patients to track the development of their embryos throughout the IVF process. At A4 Fertility Centre, we use RI witnessing to enhance patient engagement and provide a transparent, informative experience.
Here's how it works: Continuous embryo monitoring:
Our advanced embryology laboratory is equipped with time-lapse imaging systems that continuously monitor and capture images of the developing embryos. Secure access: Patients receive secure access to a personalized online portal, where they can view images and videos of their embryos as they progress through the different stages of development. Communication with the embryologist:
The online portal also facilitates communication with the embryologist, allowing patients to ask questions and receive updates on their embryos' progress. Informed decision-making:
Access to real-time information about their embryos' development helps patients feel more involved and informed, enabling them to make educated decisions about their treatment alongside their fertility specialist.
At A4 Fertility Centre
, we believe in providing transparent, patient-centered care throughout the IVF process. Remote image witnessing offers a unique opportunity for patients to stay informed and engaged, tracking the development of their embryos and playing an active role in their fertility journey. If you are considering IVF or looking for a fertility clinic that prioritizes patient involvement, contact A4 Fertility Centre to schedule a consultation with one of our expert fertility specialists.

2023.05.31 11:25 MickyDread50 How does everyone get to choose there strains?
Do you just wait for your 3mth reviews and just suggest the preferred strain you’d like to try? I’m new patient with sapphire only just had my confirmation through that I passed the MDT meeting so one very happy man right now, I’m happy with what they’ve put for my first meds but would just like to have a choice on my portal like others I believe have, I understand it’ll probably take time to get there but wanted to ask if I can just suggest different strains I’ve seen on here to them that I’d like to try. My Dr did say they like to start “low and slow” so I’m assuming if I can add more and higher THC if and when needed, but would just like to choose s few myself. I’m so happy to of been accepted now I just gotta wait for pharmacy to contact me for payment and my weed will now be delivered legally, what a world we live in ay. At 50yr male never thought I’d see the day. Hope everyone is having a blessed day, one love.

2023.05.31 10:33 East-Trust1126 QNatal Low FF at 12wks
Adding in case anyone finds themselves in a similar boat. This group was a huge source of reassurance while we were in limbo the past 3-4 weeks waiting for results
Completed first NIPT draw at 12+2 via QNatal at Quest. Waited 9 days and had results uploaded to their patient portal saying low fetal fraction. No reference range was provided nor was my FF% so I had no idea if I was close the threshold for reporting to take place. My OB and Quest we’re both also not able to see either. I am 31, normal BMI, singleton pregnancy, not IVF and did not have any qualifiers as to why I may be more likely to have low FF which made me very nervous. Only thing I could think of is the tech at Quest seemed a little sketchy to me and didn’t appear to be well versed in the test. I don’t think a butterfly needle was used but getting blood drawn usually takes 2 mins whenever I have gone in and this took 15-20 as he checked things on the computer
Went back in at 14+0 for redraw also at Quest. Waited another 9 days and started to panic as we would be getting results likely the day before heading out of the country for two weeks and if it came back low FF again I knew it would consume my thoughts on our trip until I could get home. Thankfully FF was over 7% and everything came back low risk. Still not sure why it didn’t take the first time but lessons learned that 1. 2 weeks can make a positive difference for FF levels when redrawing 2. Sometimes low FF happens for no particular reason and outcome can still be fine 3. My OB said I could do a GC consult ASAP via the phone while we were away which I thought was interesting

2023.05.31 03:56 ProxiC3 My psychiatrist called, but didn't leave a message...
I know this isn't exactly therapy, but I am sure some of you have had this happen! My psychiatrist occasionally calls to adjust appointments (if it is too short notice for his office staff to do) or ask how a prescription is going or whatever. The thing is that he never leaves a message on my phone or my digital patient portal so I am left wondering why he called. I was in a meeting that went long, and now it is too late to call back so I am just left wondering....

2023.05.31 01:22 Pryncess121 PSLF Forgiveness and Sweet Refund? 🤞🏾
| || |
So... I have been in a limbo state because of transfers and timing. This speaks to receiving PSLF forgiveness prior to Sweet settlement finalizing and wondering if I'll get a refund as I'm in the full class. I'm thinking (hoping) so with negative balances showing? Unsure but will continue to be patient. Long detailed history below for context lol. Just sharing because nobody had been able to tell me anything other than Mohela saying "if you get PSLF forgiveness you won't get a refund." submitted by Pryncess121 to BorrowerDefense [link] [comments]
-I went to Argosy University, applied for BD in January 2022. I am considered full class in the Sweet Settlement. -I attended school 2006-2009. Loans originally with AidVantage I believe, then consolidated and transferred to Sallie Mae/Navient. Once I started working in nonprofit, I started PSLF program and loans transferred to Fed Loan. - I've been keeping up with PSLF certifications over the years. I got notice about the PSLF waivers, and my payment counts last year were updated from 26 to about 78. I expected PSLF forgiveness to come within the next few years. -Last summer got notice about transfer to Mohela, and I had submitted new PSLF forms that were still processing. They transferred over to Mohela as processing along with my loan balances around Sept 2022. -January 4, 2023 I logged into Mohela to check status of my forms and saw a $0 balance. Also had a $0 balance onSl Student Aid but no notice. Finally talked with Mohela who verified I was considered PSLF direct to discharge and my loans were forgiven. They generated a letter for me and uploaded to my portal. They said my PSLF was granted in November 2022 but it was taking up to 90 days to notify borrowers. -Sweet settlement finalized January 28, 2023. No change since then on Student Aid or Mohela. I updated my AidVantage account login and contact info just in case anything there changed. -I got a random email from AidVantage this morning (5/30/2023) that looked like an automated email about payment pause and forbearance. Which didn't make sense because I have no loans. I then logged in to look at my account. All had zero balances which was expected, but then I clicked loan details to expand and the negative balances appeared.
2023.05.31 01:05 Lalber516 Is this Bad?
So a few months ago I started waking up dizzy when I got out of bed. After being up for a little while it would go away. Then about 3 weeks ago the dizziness wouldn’t go away and I called my Dr. He thought Vertigo and sent me to ENT. Who says no vertigo but your blood pressure is really high (160/113) went back to PCP and he prescribed me a baby dose Amlodipine and sent me to a cardiologist just to placate me as he still thinks it vertigo. The cardiologist ordered the tests above to see why by Blood Pressure was all of a sudden heigh along with the fact my face flushes for not reason ( PCP said hormone, as I’m 48)crazy anxiety and some heart fluttering. Looking for an adrenal tumor called Pheochromocytoma. Tests took over a week to come in and the cardiologist is out of the office for a few days but I can see the results on the patient Portal. Called my PCP and he still thinks it’s nothing but I’m kind of freaking out!

2023.05.30 22:29 evilpenguins PGT-A results dispersion: A rant
I had my second ER three weeks ago on May 9th. It's been almost two weeks since I received word that my biopsies were received by Progenesis, but I still haven't gotten the call with results (last time I had them six days after they received the biopsies).
I called Progenesis today (May 30th) to see if I could find out whether I'm at least close in the queue, only for them to tell me that my clinic has had my results since Thursday the 25th and never called me!
I call my clinic for them to say, "oh, we know we've had them but the person with the Progenesis portal access has been out on vacation, she'll be back tomorrow so we'll call you then". How is there only one person at this entire clinic with access to this portal!? Did they not think, hmm, maybe while this person is on vacation someone else should get access so we can give our patients their results in a timely manner??
I know that in the scheme of things the extra five days of waiting for results won't kill me. It won't change my timeline, we're still planning on a July FET (assuming we get at least one euploid), so it didn't delay plans for a FET this cycle or anything. But DAMN this process is so full of waiting and I'm so annoyed that I had this much more waiting to do when I really should not have had to. I just needed to vent to people who will understand, because my husband is being infuriatingly sanguine about this.

2023.05.30 22:04 SylleeMage Right Side Pain (not related to appendix) Mystery
Hello! I am 38F with PCOS and Fibromyalgia. Since the beginning of March I have had horrible side pain on my right side starting 2 weeks after my period. Imaging has ruled out issues with my appendix. I unfortunately do not have the images but I do have the radiologist reviewed results. I think my right ovary is swelling but I can't be positive because the US documentation from my normal OBGYN doesn't have the measurements of the ovary on it like my hospital ones do. It seems to happen about two weeks post period and I am looking for some options that when/if I am in pain next week (as it will be two weeks after) then I can ask for. Or if there is anything I should be asking my doctor for test wise.
Last time I ended up hospitalized due to the high white blood cell counts and they wanted to observe me for any possible infections I could have. Blood Cultures were negative, and I ended up being released once the tests were normal again.
The pain itself subsides after a few days. It comes on pretty suddenly and it makes it hard to stand up straight. 4mg of morphine only helps with radiating pain in the rest of my abdomen.
I do have other results, as well but the White blood Cell Counts and CRP were the main reason I was hospitalized last time.
Whilte Blood Cell counts 3/9/2023 – 14.9 th/mm3 4/28/2023 – 27.6 th/mm3 4/29/2023 – 12.6 th/mm3 4/29/2023 - 8.5 th/mm3

Hi all, slightly pooping my pants. I went to get a skin biopsy today for my psoriasis. I was checking the patient portal and in the doctor's note section she wrote "neoplasm of uncertain behavior", does that mean she suspects i have skin cancer or is all this standard? I just had a thyroidectomy due to cancer so I'm nervous

2023.05.30 21:06 Lucky-Pomegranate-80 Thyroid Nodules TI-RADS
40f. Factor V Leiden. No drugs, no meds, rare alcohol use. Thyroid nodules- felt one on my neck and have had a scratchy voice lately (probably allergies), but followed up JIC. Normal labs. Normal BMI.
Trying to understand what makes these nodules rated TI-RADS 4. I got the image disc from the tech. The radiologist info on my patient portal was very bare and from what I can view just states they are all TI-RADS 4 and gives recommendation for follow up and comparison to clinical presentation.
What characteristics give the nodules this category? Trying to Google is never helpful, so thought I’d try asking an actual doctor :)
Follow up with my doctor isn’t for a while. Is it fine to wait a couple months to see her? Any questions I need to ask her?

2023.05.30 21:00 The_Fallen_1 [THJVerse] Arcane Starfarers - ep 37 - Welcome committee
Daniel patted Corporal Seling’ten on the back as he took over the console on the bridge from him, preparing for the day ahead. He checked all the readouts and found that they were all roughly what he was expecting, so he settled down as Hannah'rah did the same next to him.
"Good morning, everyone," Captain Harris began, addressing the whole bridge. "Word has just gone out that all ground operations have concluded, and everyone and everything is safely up in orbit. We're just waiting for confirmation before we depart the system. Make sure you're all ready to jump."
The bridge chorused an affirmative, and Daniel quickly checked his sensors to find them no different to normal, before he looked over his shoulder to Milla, who was apprehensively taking her seat in her humanoid form. A few moments later, the neural interface built into her chair began to extend sensors and non-invasive probes around the back of her neck and the top of her head, and she closed her eyes as the system ran through the standard checks. After a couple of minutes had passed, she nodded to the Captain, confirming she was ready.
"Oprin, I suggest taking one of the spare seats at the back of the room. Passing through a portal can be disorienting the first few times," Captain Harris warned the Langan.
"Of course, thank you for the warning," Oprin replied, sitting down and staring at the planet on the screen.
"Captain, transmission from the Batlow," Lieutenant Commander Sentrela informed her. "Attention all ships, this is Vice Admiral Braun, we will be jumping in five minutes. Make sure preparations are complete by then,
" the comms announced.
“Signal our acknowledgement,” the Captain ordered. “Set the ship to jump alert.”
Daniel quickly glanced at the alert lighting as it suddenly lit up with a purple hue, and a single audial alert sounded, indicating the fore and aft compartments should be exited, and airtight doors sealed. The safety precautions were almost always irrelevant, but due to the increased strain on Gaters when jumping large ships, people were moved to the safest place on the ship in case of a failed jump, just in case the initial mana spike of the ship entering the portal disrupted the Gater, or they ended up flagging under the prolonged strain of the full length of the ship being transported.
“Affinity, perform standard jump checks,” Captain Harris instructed the VI.
“Affirmative, Captain,” Affinity replied. “Gater link established. Coordinates locked. All personnel are within safe boundaries. Mana levels are optimal. All systems report green. Final readiness is up to the Gater.”
“Ready,” Milla confirmed.
“Signal the fleet that we’re ready,” Captain Harris ordered.
Daniel looked at his sensors, reading the outputs to see if anything looked off with the other ships, but everything looked within normal parameters. He did notice a sudden spike of EM radiation from the direction of the planet’s moon for less than a second, but when he scrutinised it with other sensors, he found no signs of anything out of place, and a thorough scan with the gravitational sensors confirmed that there was nothing there. He logged the reading for it to be investigated at a later date in case the sensor was malfunctioning after being exposed to heightened radiation for a while, and then looked up as a series of mostly purple flashes appeared on the screens around him as the fleet prepared to jump.
He looked back at Milla as a faint purple portal opened within the ship’s shields, noticing the fierce level of concentration on her face. After a few moments, the ship began to slowly edge forwards, and Milla began to grit her teeth as the prow pierced through the portal, but the system didn’t send out any warnings of portal fluctuations, so the ship continued forwards. Before too long, the purple boundary reached the bridge, causing a flash in the back of Daniel’s eyes, and it carried on to the rear of the ship. He focussed back on Milla to find that she was hyperventilating, and the instant the all clear signal was sounded, she slumped backwards in her chair as the strain suddenly lifted off her mind.
Daniel immediately got out of his chair and ran over to Milla, catching her before she fell out of her chair and alerting everyone around them that something wasn’t right. Captain Harris immediately turned her attention to them, cutting herself off part way through confirming their location. He quickly checked Milla’s pulse and breathing, confirming that she wasn’t in a serious condition. With the Captain’s help, he lowered her down onto the floor, and a medical team rushed onto the bridge, seemingly alerted by another member on the bridge. They performed a few checks of their own, shifted Milla onto a stretcher, and rushed her off to the infirmary.
“Report to the fleet that our jump was successful, but our Gater was incapacitated,” Captain Harris ordered, breaking the silence of the bridge as Daniel returned to his seat.
“Copy that, Captain. Two freighters are reporting the same situation,” Lieutenant Commander Sentrela replied. “Apparently the spike of radiation hitting the spell-based radiation shields once the last tech-based shield emitter passed through was too much for them to bear, and the strain rendered them unconscious.”
“That matches what I’m seeing in the jump data,” Commander Santlen’coln told the Captain.
“Alright, there’s not a lot we can do about that now, and Milla is being taken care of, so we should proceed with the task at hand,” Captain Harris told everyone, turning her attention to the rocky planet nearby, which was covered in large bodies of water and had a noticeable Earth-like atmosphere. “Follow the fleet to the station-”
“Captain, I’m detecting multiple portals opening up nearby,” Daniel warned her as he noticed the sensor spikes. “All but one are Navy transponders…. Captain, it’s The Providence.”
“... Deities…” Captain Harris mumbled.
“... Captain, we’re receiving a transmission from The Providence,” Lieutenant Commander Sentrela warned her. “It seems to be different from the one the rest of the fleet is receiving.”
“Let’s hear it,” she replied. “Greetings, crew of the Trailmaker, this is Celenamartra speaking, though I am not the only Deity present,”
the comms announced as the feed of a gigantic green Dragon appeared on the main screen, adorned with a moderate amount of gold jewellery as she sat upon a padded cushion. “Firstly, I’d like to congratulate you on your successful mission. Rescuing another species from extinction is no small feat, even without any major hiccups along the way.”
“You honour us, Goddess,” Captain Harris replied, bowing her head. “Secondly, I’d like to request permission to come aboard.”
“O- of course!” Captain Harris agreed, locking up firmly. “Thank you, Captain Harris. You are clear to enter our perimeter for docking,”
Celenamartra informed her, cutting the comms.
“... Lieutenant Commander Skrnumm, take us in.”
“... Aye, Captain,” the Dwarf replied, slowly piloting the ship towards the four kilometre long ivory and gold ship, as much a work of art as it was a functional transport.
“Lieutenant Commander Sentrela, what were the other ships told?” Captain Harris asked.
“They were thanked and instructed to head to the station,” Lieutenant Commander Sentrela explained.
“Right. Let’s see what happens. Prepare the guard of honour.”
Daniel stood next to Hannah’rah near the end of the assembled guard of honour, facing straight forwards and listening out for the faint clunk of the airlock doors opening, and catching the sight of a silver Dragon with an artificial wing boarding the ship in a smaller form, followed by what was obviously Celenamartra behind them, with another silver Dragon following up the rear. The procession stopped shortly after boarding the ship, as the Goddess and the Captain exchanged words outside of Daniel’s earshot, and it then resumed, proceeding onwards until the Goddess stopped right in front of Daniel.
“Daniel Hardbrooks, Hannah’rah, please follow me,” Celenamartra requested, her voice soft but with an underlying tone that made them both eager to comply.
Hannah’rah stepped forward without a second thought, but Daniel blinked in disbelief, before suddenly coming to his senses and falling in next to Hannah’rah behind the Goddess. They continued on, quickly reaching the end of the guard of honour, but continuing on deeper into the ship.
“Left here,” Celenamartra instructed her forward guard, turning the group around a corner. “Ok, no need to keep it as formal anymore, and there aren’t any dangers on this ship.”
The guards turned into their humanoid forms and headed to the back of the group without a word.
“Hannah’rah, it’s been a few years, how are you doing?” the Goddess asked.
“I’m doing fine, thank you. I’m sure you already know all the details though,” Hannah’rah replied. “How are you doing?”
“I am doing well as well, thank you. I even managed to lug my main body out here,” the Goddess chuckled.
“... What…?” Captain Harris almost inaudibly mumbled.
“My Mother works for her Champion, so I spent a lot of time around the Goddess as I grew up,” Hannah’rah quickly explained.
“That you did,” Celenamartra confirmed, heading towards the next corner and poking her head around. “Oprin Asten, how nice it is to finally meet one of your kind in person.”
There was a sharp yelp from around the corner as Oprin realised she had been found out, and she slowly appeared from around the corner. “Sorry if it seemed like I was hiding.”
“It’s fine, you were just curious but nervous, I understand,” the Goddess assured her as the group began to walk again. “I’m Celenamartra, and yes, I am a Deity, though not as how you would describe one, am I right?”
“... I don’t think so. To us, a Deity is something fundamental to life, like our star, water, air, and soil.”
“I see. And by our definitions, a Deity is a being with the ability to permanently alter the laws of reality, and does not conform to the normal standards of mortality. For example, this body is little more than a puppet, as my true self doesn’t exist in the material world, nor does it really exist anywhere in particular, it just does. This is my original body though, so while it is effectively little more than a puppet, it is special to me.”
“Original body?” Oprin asked.
“I was once mortal myself, uncountable numbers of millennia ago, long before even the Dwarves first worked metal. This body is the one I was born with, and I’ve kept it alive, even after my ascension. I must apologise for cutting our conversation short, as there is something I must do now, but I promise we can talk more after. Follow me if you wish.”
“That’s ok, thank you for your time,” Oprin replied, glancing at Daniel as she joined him.
The Goddess led the group further into the ship, quickly arriving at the infirmary, and her two guards took their positions either side of the door. One of them flagged Captain Harris and Oprin to wait outside, while the other waved Daniel and Hannah’rah through behind the Goddess. Once inside, all the medical staff quickly stopped what they were doing and stared at the new arrivals.
“Thank you, everyone, for all your hard work. I ask for some privacy with the patient, if that is not disruptive?” Celenamartra requested.
“Of course, Great Keeper of the Forest,” Dr Leresan replied, bowing before her and making Daniel remember that despite being a Dragon, she was strongly associated with nature and life.
Daniel was unsure of what to do now though, as formality made him want to leave the room with the medical staff, but all other signs indicated that he should remain here with the Goddess. He looked up at the Dragon, finding her staring at him, as if expecting an answer.
“Thank you for saving the life of my Granddaughter, Daniel,” the Goddess repeated. "The incident with the Ridgerider would have turned out much worse if you and the Marines didn't board that ship and save everyone."
"Oh, you're welcome. It was just a part of my duty," he replied.
"That may be, but you saved her when I could not interfere, and I am truly grateful. If there is anything I can do for you, let me know," she offered.
"Thanks, but that's not necessary," he replied, wondering if being polite just cost him an amazing opportunity.
"Take your time to think and let me know if you change your mind," she replied, walking over to the side of the bed Milla was resting on.
"Is she going to be ok?" Hannah'rah asked.
"Yes, she's just in a very light coma from the strain and shock on her system. She'll wake naturally in a few hours, but the delay isn't necessary," Celenamartra explained, smiling as Milla's eyes slowly opened. "Don't get up too quickly. You need to rest."
"... Nan?" Milla asked. "... What are you doing here?"
"Originally the plan was to officially welcome the Langan, but when you had your incident, I decided to visit you first instead."
"A high strain portal incident. You got the Trailmaker safely back in UPC space, so everything is fine now. Just rest."
"Ok…. Where's everyone else?"
"They weren't able to attend at such a short notice for various reasons, nor were they aware this might happen. Your friends, Daniel and Hannah'rah, are both here though," the Goddess pointed out, directing Milla's attention to them as she assumed her humanoid form.
“Hey, you two. I hope I didn’t scare you,” Milla told them as she sat up.
“Not too badly,” Hannah’rah lied, sitting down in a chair next to her bed.

After 3 losses, I finally swallowed my pride and made a consult. The appointment was great, but I found it incredibly overwhelming on the next steps. They have a whole sheet of labs and procedures to do next, which I know is to be expected. I guess I’m just processing that this is what it’s going to take to possibly “keep” a pregnancy. Just need to vent and process with those who get it 💗💗💗💗 submitted by Feisty_Fuel1570 to recurrentmiscarriage [link] [comments]
2023.05.30 16:09 Feeling-Client7275 Endo disagrees with TRT dosing and schedule
Finally found a somewhat agreeable Endo to get my TRT covered under insurance. However there's some discrepancies. She claims it's unusual for HCG and Test Cyp to be prescribed together and that an AI isn't ever necessary. She was really cool though in discussing it and I brought up that it seems to be a pretty common thing and I've read on studies backing it. She actually was curious about the studies and admitted to it being a while since prescribing or working with patients taking testosterone.
I currently dose 3x a week - she said that was odd and usually only does once a week. Take HCG - she thought it was odd to take this with testosterone AI taken as needed - she suggested that you shouldn't need an AI and I explained how I've noticed when my estrogen levels felt elevated that I would take .25mg, most but since changing to 3x weekly injections it hasn't been needed as opposed to when I did twice weekly. My low before getting on TRT was 338ng/dL which dropped from about 550 the year prior despite making major lifestyle improvements and symptoms getting worse.
Should I attempt to show her current practices and explain further how this has worked for me and it's going on a year? She was really chill and didn't seem opposed to learning about these studies I was reading on. I've been on test for almost a year now and it has significantly improved my life and all the sides I was having prior have pretty much gone away.
She ended up ordering me labs to see where I sit now and suggested I can stop taking test BUT continue HCG and then said we can chat about everything more through the online patient portal as well.

2023.05.30 15:59 YaaliAnnar NoP: Lost and Found (56)
First Previous Memory Transcription Subject: Vani, Venlil Surgeon
Date [Standard Human Reckoning]: 2136-10-22
Secluded in the comfort of our cabin, I found myself savoring the rare moments of peace with Johan. The bustling camp did not afford us the luxury of privacy, and this precious pocket of calmness felt like a gift. Lying on the bed together, we did not feel the need to fill the silence with words or engage in any couple of activities. I felt an inherent satisfaction in just lying there together.
"Vani," Johan's voice filled the quiet cabin.
"I'm... I'm afraid of going back," he confessed.
I considered his words before asking, "Do you have many friends back in Jakarta?"
His gaze stayed on the ceiling as he replied, "Other than Snop... not. I guess, in a twisted way, that's a kind of luck?"
I watched as he rolled onto his side to face me, his eyes searching mine. "I count myself beyond fortunate to have met you." His fingers stroked my mane. His light touch felt heavy and comforting. "Even if we were in Jakarta when they implemented the quota they would have let me evacuate with you."
For a while, we just lay there, appreciating each other, our silent exchanges speaking volumes.
When we arrived at the ship, it was still the second or third hour of the day. I forgot when I fell asleep, but Johan's alarm woke us up the same. When we stepped out of our cabin, we found Tresn and the siblings lounging in the common area. Tresn now had the prostheses in his paws. The device twitched every now and there. Meanwhile, the siblings were engrossed in their thoughts or busy with their pads.
In the common area, we had our first meal aboard the vessel. We sat near the window, our portal to the world outside. Through the clear pane, the black water merged with the black sky, and I felt like being suspended in a void. Yet, despite this sense of absolute stillness, the ship flew above the water at a speed above fifty meters per second. Sometime after we had cleared our plates, our surrounding transformed. The sun, breaking the confines of the horizon, began its ascent. Although we were facing away from this bright ball in the sky, its effect was no less mesmerizing. Dawn overtook the black sky. First, the once pitch-black sky took on a shade of deep purple. A transition to an intense, deep red followed it soon after.
Perhaps two or three hours after the sunrise, the coastline of Cirebon began to emerge, peeking out from the edge of the horizon. Its unblemished skyline shone in stark contrast to the devastation reported in Jakarta.
Elangkasa joined us in the common area before we landed.
"Hi folks." They greeted me. "So, I might have forgotten to tell you all that you'll go to Purwakarta Sector 12 as volunteers."
"We don't mind." Said Johan. "I'm glad if I can be of help."
Elangkasa then briefed us on our job in Purwakarta Sector 12, Bolad and I would join the health workers. Johan and Cynthio had put aside their differences, nodding in agreement when Elangkasa assigned them to service and maintain the drones for rescue. Snop agreed when they asked her for help in construction with her skills in operating machining tools.
The armed forces had commandeered this once bustling commercial hub and had transformed it into a temporary base and staging area just like in Banjarmasin. Once we disembarked, Bolad and I joined Johan in his van again. A map of the region appeared on the dashboard. A red pinpoint marked the ovation where the bomb fell and a circle around it, the area of effect.
My classes both in Venlil Prime and Earth did not teach me about orbital bombardment and here I learned that one needs to get into a bunker in times like this. Because, for tens of kilometers, the bomb would heat the air to the point of causing tissue damage. The map showed a region where you will face severe burn injury if you stayed outside when the explosion happened. Amid the circle depicting the zones of devastation, one stark red marker pulsated with disconcerting energy. It lay within the severe heat zone. Its constant glow commanded my immediate attention.
"Johan," I ventured, pointing at the glaring red marker that almost seemed to taunt us, "That red marker there is your home, is it not?"
His eyes shifted from the barren road to the display, taking in the red beacon that represented his home. "Yeah…" He let out a sigh, heavy with desolation within the confines of the vehicle. "I wonder what's left of that house now."
As we drew nearer to the affected area, I steeled myself for the scenes of destruction. However, the buildings seemed to have withstood the assault better than I expected. Of course, we could see the scars of the attack, the shockwave shattered windows and some structures had superficial cracks. A general sense of disarray permeated our surroundings, but the core structures stood against the odds.
Cities and towns dotting the outskirts of the Greater Jakarta Province had been retrofitted with camps to accommodate the droves of displaced people emerging from the ruins of the once-thriving metropolis. In recent days, the tide has started to turn. Able-bodied survivors moved back towards their shattered homes, driven by the urge to reclaim and restore what they could salvage from the debris.
Our journey led us to the city of Purwakarta, a place I remembered from a past excursion with Johan. We had once visited the city's reservoir, taking in the tranquil beauty of the idyllic landscape. The city has changed now. A bustling hive of activity transformed the city as it took refuge for those fleeing the destruction.
Because of the scale of the destruction, we didn't have a single "camp" as we had for the gojids. The refugee districts were divided into Sectors. We pulled into sector twelve as the midday sun reached its zenith, casting almost no shadow on the ground. Prefabricated buildings of varying sizes formed an ordered chaos across the city's outskirts.
Everywhere we looked, people occupied themselves in a frenzy of activity. Here, soldiers oversaw the transport of food and materials. There, health workers moved to check from the habitation unit to the habitation unit. Engineers collaborate with helper and builder drones to perform maintenance and construction. All around, people took on roles they never imagined they would, united by the common goal of survival and restoration.
Despite the dire circumstances, the humans put on determined faces. Humans made the majority of camp inhabitants, but I spotted two arxurs here, their imposing presence always accompanied by a human minder. Both of them shot a look in disgust at Tresn, while humans looked at the defector with an equal part of concern and curiosity.
Elangkasa led us through the camp. First, we passed the engineering quarter where my human and the siblings parted from us. Another trip led us to the medical complex, where we saw medical personnel moving with well-practiced efficiency to care for the injured. A conglomeration of tents and prefabricated buildings all bearing the red crystal symbol made up the hospital. The bustle here felt different, it had an undercurrent of urgency threaded through the ordered chaos.
At the entrance of the hospital's administration building a zurulian had waited for us. Her short stature did not deter us. Upon noticing us, however, her expression turned sour.
"I have a feeling I'm not supposed to be here." Said Tresn. "Maybe... I can get to the habitation unit?"
"You need some help with physiotherapy. Can you bring him there, Elangkasa?" said Bolad.
"Yeah, take that to a human health worker. I'm not going to treat it." The zurulian said with a huff.
"I am Bolad, and this is Vani." The gojid introduced ourselves.
"I'm Rawan, the medical Coordinator for Sector Twelve, Shift Two."
My stomach rumbled, a reminder that it was midday, mealtime according to Earth's cycle.
Sensing my discomfort, Rawan commented. "Hungry already? Well, we are on a lunch break right now. Follow me," leading us away from the hospital administration.
According to the map, there exist two dining areas, located far from each other. The one Rawan brought us to, served plant-based meals for species with a herbivorous diet, the other was where arxurs and their human minders feast.
Stepping into the hall felt comforting. It felt as if an invisible barrier dampened the harsh sounds of the bustling camp outside, replaced by the familiar din of a busy dining hall. Members of Federation species, like us, gathered here. I saw zurulians, colleagues of Dr. Rawan, along with several gojids who had responded to the call for assistance in the rescue, relief, and rebuilding efforts.
The dining procedure here was not like what we had at the camp. Instead of autonomous carts coming around to deliver our meals, we had to stand in line. Humans manned the serving counters, dishing out meals onto trays as we moved along. The menu today consists of a stir-fried noodle and rice combination, named "Nasi Mawut".
After getting our portions, we selected an empty table, the tantalizing taste in the air from our tray deepened my hunger and anticipation. We set down our trays, and with a collective eagerness, took our seats.
"To be honest," Rawan began, her gaze sweeping over the crowded dining hall before returning to her meal, "This is often the highlight of my day here." She gestured towards her plate and scoffed, "Imagine that, I, a zurulian, looking forward to a predator's meal."
"To be fair," I retorted, "this meal is not prepared from ingredients they acquired from hunting."
Rawan chuckled a high-keening sound that made her sound like she was in distress. "Sometimes," she mused, her eyes thoughtful as she poked at her food, "I do wonder why they feel the need to consume flesh when they can subsist on meals such as these."
Not wanting to engage in a sensitive debate with a superior officer we had just met, I opted for silence, focusing instead on the pleasant taste of the Nasi Mawut before us.
A voice broke the quiet chatter around us. A gojid, appearing youthful by their standards, made his way toward our table with a casual gait. A broad smile adorned his face as he acknowledged us. "Hey, doctors! Fancy seeing you here again."
"Greetings," Bolad replied with a courteous nod. "I hope the presence of arxurs has not caused you undue distress?"
I looked at the gojid's hip and saw a familiar scar. I recognized him as the one gored by the sheep back at the camp.
A robust laugh escaped from the gojid, his face brightening up. He waved off Bolad's concerns, "No worries, Doc. We've got a human minder assigned to us to keep those predators in check. And we also have a buddy system, safety in numbers, you know."
"That is good to hear," Bolad responded. Although my facial annotator had learned a lot about gojids' gestures and expressions, it kept interpreting Bolad's emotion as a blank.
A small device strapped to the gojid's wrist chirped. The gojid glanced at it before looking back up to us with a swift nod. "Ah, duty calls. Well, it was nice chatting with you, Doc!" With that, he swung around, his round figure merging with the crowd as he strode towards the exit.
Once the gojid departed, Rawan, Bolad, and I continued to sit and chat over the remains of our meal. Bolad and I shared stories about our experiences in the gojid camp in Kalimantan. The pervasive sound of a resounding announcement filled the hall, halting our exchange. An impersonal voice echoed from the overhead speakers.
"Shift Two! Your break time will be over in ten minutes. I repeat. Shift Two! Your break time will be over in ten minutes." The forceful announcement marked the conclusion of our pause, a reminder of the tasks that awaited us.
"Well, that's our cue," the medical coordinator announced, getting up from her seat. Her hands reached for her tray but having to maneuver in bipedal mode made the action seem awkward.
"Allow me," I offered, reaching for her tray to assist. "I'll carry it to the collection point."
"Thank you," she responded.
As I made my way to the collection point, Bolad engaged Rawan in a conversation. "How many shifts are there in a day?" he queried.
Rawan turned to Bolad. "We work with a four-shift rotation. The humans initially wanted three, due to their unusual stamina," she explained.
Once we discarded the tray Rawan led us back to the medical complex of Sector Twelve.
"Our main goal here is to offer immediate care to the injured and aid in their recovery." She started when we passed the gate of the medical complex.
Rawan gestured towards a cluster of tents assembled off to the side. A perpetual flurry of activity surrounded them as people carried patients in and out on stretchers. "These are our triage tents," Rawan explained. "New patients are first brought here for evaluation. Depending on the severity of their injuries, they are then dispatched to the appropriate sections for treatment. Bolad, you'll be stationed here. Your expertise in general medicine will be invaluable in assessing patients."
Our tour continued, taking us through the maze of the field hospital. We walked past prefabricated structures, erected with solid synthetic materials.
"These," Rawan proclaimed, her paw sweeping towards the buildings, "are our operating theaters. We haven't been able to install remote surgical facilities. Though, given your preference, that shouldn't be an issue..."
"I do favor direct surgery," I confessed, revealing a bit of my past.
Rawan halted, her sharp gaze taking both of us in. Her snout was positioned between Bolad and me looking at us from her peripheral vision. "I've reviewed both of your files," she said, focusing her attention on me. "I've worked with your kind before. You have your use in times and places like this."
Neither Bolad nor I questioned her use of the term "your kind", but we all know what she implied here.
"Now, it's time for you to report to your stations," Rawan instructed us, her tone leaving no room for debate. "The human health workers already in the field will brief you on the specific protocols we've established here."
The moment I crossed the threshold into the operating theater, I was confronted with an open fracture. The sterile operating rooms of the past, where I donned a vacuum suit to prevent my fur from contaminating the environment, seemed a world away. Here, a disposable robe was all that separated me from my patient. I plunged into hours of repairing human bodies, and I feel more useful than I had ever felt before. As valuable as my previous role of determining causes of death was, I feel a satisfying gratification in saving lives.
As I immersed myself in the demanding tasks of the medical field, my mind sometimes drifted toward Bolad. While my duties were straightforward, applying proven techniques and procedures, Bolad grappled with the daunting responsibility of determining the course of our patient's treatment. His role dictated the trajectory of their recovery or, in the worst cases, their demise. The magnitude of such a responsibility could be soul-crushing, and I wished that it did not burden him.
Before I knew it, a new team arrived ready for me to hand over my job to them. The end of our shift brought us to a prefabricated habitation unit, a space similar to our quarters in the camp. Due to spatial constraints, the unit contained three bunk beds instead of the usual row of mattresses.
When Bolad and I arrived at our living quarters, we found Johan, the siblings, and Tresn already present. They all gathered around a table, engrossed in a spirited card game.
"Vani! Bolad!" Johan looked up from his hand of cards, a warm smile spreading across his face. "How was your day?"
Bolad answered before I could. "I had to watch people die."
A stark silence filled the air. Johan's smile faltered as he bit his lip.
"Bolad was assigned to the triage area," I clarified, stepping in to defuse the tension.
"But you can request a rotation if the stress becomes too much," I offered, directing my words at Bolad as I hoisted myself onto an unoccupied chair. "What about you two?" I inquired, shifting the focus onto Johan and his siblings.
"We had to program the drones and-" Johan began, but Cynthio interrupted his explanation.
"They removed all the restrictions," Cynthio said. "We got to work with unrestricted synthetic intelligence! What we had to do felt less like programming and more like... talking with them." The joy and excitement on Cynthio's face were obvious even without my facial annotator.
Tresn placed a card onto the pile in the middle of the table, interjecting a question that caught us off guard. "By the way… how difficult is it to get to Sector Ten?"
"You could walk there if you wanted. Why do you ask?" Johan responded, curious about the sudden interest in another sector.
"There's someone I want to meet," Tresn admitted, a hint of hesitation in his voice.
"Hmm…" Snop considered, tilting her head. "We have about two or three hours before the breaking of the fast. How did you come to know this person?"
"The Internet," Tresn replied.
"Oh…" Snop replied, her face attempting to maintain neutrality and almost failing.
Intrigued by Tresn's unexpected online connection, we decided to accompany him on the short journey to Sector Ten. Leaving our habitation unit, we found ourselves navigating the ad hoc alleyways of Camp Sectors. Humans of all ages hustled past us, their faces a mosaic of determination and sorrow, each one bearing the weight of rebuilding amidst the ruins.
The further we ventured towards Sector Ten, the more conspicuous the increase in the arxurs' presence became. Given their nocturnal tendencies, I surmised that most Arxurs preferred anything but the second shifts.
Upon reaching the main plaza of Sector Ten, Tresn pulled out his pad, fingers dancing over the screen to access a social media site. I saw intensity in his actions, as he engaged in a private chat with a rapid succession of texts. He scanned his surrounding and his instinctive predatory gaze locked onto a specific figure in the bustling crowd, a human who was also looking around. An arxur shadowed him, their movements synchronized as if orchestrated by a shared rhythm.
Tresn wheeled first and we followed him toward the pair, our formation taking on a semi-circular shape around them. The human had close-cropped curly hair and his upper revealed his arm. A band covered his right arm and there was something off about the rest of that limb. The skin looked too smooth.
"Wait…" Snop, ever the observant one, pointed a finger toward the human, her voice laced with recognition. "I think… I know you."
The human responded by pointing back at Snop. "Aren't you Snowpaws?"
She nodded in affirmation. "Yeah, and you're… Jagomerah?"
A smile of confirmation danced on the human's lips. "Yeah."
Johan, who had been watching the interaction unfold, broke into a musing grin, "Jagomerah… that has to be a screen name," he remarked, shifting his gaze toward Tresn.
"Tresn," Johan began, an amused undertone in his voice, "You have been chatting with furries haven't you?"
"Scallies." Both Snop and Jagomerah corrected.

2 PE's, Perforated Ulcer repaired via Laparotomy.
2x 5mg Apixiban, 2x 40mg Protonix, 2x 40mg Faratidine, 2-4x Karafate.
Good day everyone. in my ongoing journey of figuring out my health issues, I had a HIDA scan done the other week to see if my symptoms are caused by my gallbladder. (22 May 23). I was checking the patient portal for my GI specialist to see if the results had come in on 25 May 23. record looked the same with no updates. I checked again on 29 May 23, and the results of the HIDA scan still hadn't come back, but I noticed a new diagnosis in my record, I49.9 (Unspecified Arrhythmia).
Is there any reason as to why this would show up in my record on my GI Specialist's Patient Portal, but not on my PCM's Patient Portal? my only thought would be if they saw something on the HIDA scan that my specialist ordered, but it was my understanding that the only thing the HIDA scan could see was the radio-tracer they injected into me, being focused onto my livegallbladder area.
Is this code something that I should be asking questions and getting answers about? I have been having periodic chest pains since my first PE.

2023.05.30 10:08 Williamson-BS How I Successfully Obtained a Study Visa to Canada: My Journey and Tips
Hi fellow Redditors,
I wanted to share my experience and provide some insights on how I managed to secure a study visa to Canada. Going through the process can be daunting, but with the right approach and preparation, it's absolutely achievable. Here's a breakdown of my journey and some tips that might help you on your own study visa application:
Research and Choose the Right Program and Institution:
Before starting the visa application process, it's crucial to research and select a program and institution that aligns with your academic goals and interests. Consider factors like the reputation of the institution, course curriculum, location, and potential career opportunities. This will not only strengthen your visa application but also ensure you make the most of your education abroad.
Understand the Requirements:
Familiarize yourself with the specific requirements for a study visa in Canada. Visit the official website of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to get accurate and up-to-date information. Key requirements typically include an acceptance letter from a designated learning institution, proof of financial resources, and a valid passport.
Demonstrating your ability to finance your studies and living expenses is an essential part of the visa application. Create a comprehensive financial plan, including tuition fees, accommodation costs, healthcare coverage, and other necessary expenses. Make sure to provide sufficient evidence of your financial resources, such as bank statements, sponsorship letters, or scholarship awards.
Begin your visa application process as early as possible. Gathering all the required documents, filling out forms, and meeting various deadlines can take time. Starting early will not only reduce stress but also give you ample time to address any unexpected delays or challenges that may arise.
Seek Professional Guidance:
Consider consulting with a reputable immigration advisor
or consultant who specializes in Canadian study visas. They can provide expert guidance, review your application materials, and help you navigate the complex immigration system. While this is optional, it can significantly increase your chances of success and provide peace of mind throughout the process.
Pay Attention to Detail:
Ensure that all the information you provide is accurate, complete, and consistent across all application forms and supporting documents. Pay attention to spelling, grammar, and formatting to present a professional and well-organized application. Missing or incorrect information can lead to delays or even visa rejections.
Prepare for the Interview (if applicable):
In some cases, you may be required to attend an interview as part of the visa application process. Be prepared to answer questions about your study plans, financial arrangements, and future prospects. Research common interview questions, practice your responses, and remain calm and confident during the interview.
The visa application process can take time, and it's important to remain patient throughout. Stay updated with your application status through the IRCC's online portal or tracking system. If there are any delays or concerns, reach out to the appropriate authorities for assistance. Remember
, every visa application is unique, and the process can vary based on individual circumstances. This post is based on my personal experience, and it's always recommended to consult official sources and seek professional advice to ensure you have the most accurate and up-to-date information for your specific situation.
I wish you all the best in your study visa journey to Canada! Feel free to ask any questions or share your own experiences in the comments below.
