I had a liver transplant, how can I remove stretchmarks on my back and stomach?

I had a liver transplant in 2005, and the resulting ascites gave me many stretchmarks on my back and stomach. Now that I will have a bit more money and some better health insurance pretty soon, I am willing to pay a bit to have a procedure done to reduce or remove them. What is the best procedure, or what is the best OTC product that I should use to reduce these stretchmarks as much as possible?

Medications: Prograf, Prednisone, Cellcept, Zoloft, Trazodone
General Information: Liver transplant in 2005

I have skin patches on my neck and chest since I my teens, could it be too much insulin?

As a teen i started getting skin patches on my neck and chest. Dry not itchy or anything. Just wondering what it could be. I’m now 27 years old. So its been happening for some time now. I was once told by a Dr not being checked just her opinion that it could be because my body produces to much insulin. I’m no Dr but i just think that’s not what it could be. Id just like answers and to see what i could possibly do about it.

I had breast reduction surgery today, I had an episode of arrhythmia with my heart stopping?

I had breast reduction surgery today. Under anesthesia I had an episode of arrhythmia with my heart stopping for a few seconds, prompting the anesthesiologist to tell the PS to wrap it up quickly. I have a 3 year history of palpitations (since I quit taking Klonopin) and last year an eco found an atrial septum aneurysm. The cardiologist gave me an ok for the breast reduction.
The anesthesiologist said I need to tell the cardiologist asap but i can’t reach him.

My dilemma? I’m afraid to go to sleep now. I’m actually afraid I’m going to die in my sleep. I haven’t slept since the surgery this AM because as soon as I start to fall asleep I feel palpitations and I wake up.

Am I right to be worried?
