I just wanted to refresh everyone's memory regarding the registration and agreement to the Forum rules:

1- Duplicate posting is not permitted. Please read the FAQ to understand why

2- No specific mentioning of doctor names

3- Forum guidelines pertain to Forums, Chat and Messages

4- Review existing forum threads. Many times you will get the answer to your questions

5- Including posts from other URLs is frowned up. Please check to see if there is already a topic that is presented here so there would be no need for posting external sites

6- Generally a member is giving 3 formal warings before that are banned. Some of the exceptions are
a) Aggressive behavior to another member .
If for whatever reason you are Banned from this site, do not come back under a different email address. We can spot these.
b- Use of any type of pornography
c- Impersonating or pretending to be someone you are not.

I bring this up, because we have had several instances of this negative behavior today
If you have any questions about the rules, please contact me or one of the moderators

  • Unless someone is a doctor, should they be giving specific information? Such as interpreting MRI/CT/Xray reports?

    Just curious...

    No member should ever respond to a post about MRI readings or interpretations. We always tell people NOT to do that. We are not doctors here and are not qualified to read MRIs
    What is allowed is if a person says "In my opinion, but I am not a doctor, your MRI"
    - Sounds like you do have some problems
    - Sounds like you are ok
    But the final word has to come from the doctor
