Sounds like you've made a good decision for you. And it sounds like you've put alot of effort into every intervention possible, within your contro,l to remedy the problem and it just hasn't worked. Sometimes it doesn't. I think your attitude... (more)
Those of you with either personal experience or patients - what do you recommend? How soon before/after scheduled surgery do you stop fish oils? How does this apply to pregnant women near their due date? When do you reintroduce fish oils? Thanks. (more)
