I lost all hair to chemo, but it grew back after chemo &

I lost all hair to chemo, but it grew back after chemo & radiation were done with. The hair on top frontal area is very, very, thin however. My hair has no luster, shine, etc. and does appear to be thinning all over. Right now I have, in my hair, combo. of coconut oil, castor oil and on front section some of the white serum from the inside of the biotin capsules I am taking. Can or will any of this help the re-growth? I am also taking 50,000 mg of vitamin D two days a week, and Anostrozole each day for the next 5 yrs. Can any of this be the culprits?

My whole thyroid showed up on an X-ray, but my ultrasound

My whole thyroid showed up white on an X-ray, but my ultrasound came back pretty normal. Endo said one spot looks like it might cause problems in future but not to worry for another year. TSH with reflex blood tests came back normal but no other blood tests ordered. Why would thyroid show up on X-ray but no major changes in ultrasound? My endo could not answer this. Should I seek second opinion? Also I have extreme fatigue, cold all the time, weight gain.

My mom is suffering from what looks severe edema in her

My mom is suffering from what looks severe edema in her ankles and feet. Severe swelling, veins bulging, and purple blotchy skin. This has been the case for about 4 months. She refuses to see a doctor. She takes natural supplements known to reduce swelling, does magnesium foot soaks, wears compression socks, all which seem to offer temp relief but it's not going away. Just before these symptoms appeared, she says she was bitten by a spider, which causes initial redness and swelling. Could this be an infection? She has had a history of high blood pressure. Not sure if that's still the case. And she has lost weight during this time frame. She is 5 feet tall and wanted to lose the weight anyway. For her body type she looks amazing but should not lose any more. She is 75 years old and otherwise seems pretty healthy. Any advice? Thank you!

My Dad is on Lipitor...but recently(this past year) has

My Dad is on Lipitor...but recently(this past year) has changed his diet. He reduced processed foods, sugar, dairy and red meats. He swims several days a week. His total cholesterol is now 138...my understanding is that is should not be below 160...he has become forgetful a bit and irritable. HDL are 45..LDL74 and trig.97 ...glucose under 100..Homeocysteine 9.6 I plan on speaking with his doctor about adjusting the Lipitor ...would you agree? Isn't total chol. at 138 dangerous...the brain and cells need cholesterol, correct? Thanks DanielleJA: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?Customer: No history of heart disease ...my Dad is 81 btw..awesome shape!JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Has focal laser ablation for prostate cancer last year...successful...he changed his diet to improve his immune system as an added precaution since he had prostate cancer
