Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Your horoscope By Jean? Dixon Tueidoy, 21, 1971 THE LETHIRIDGE HERALD 15 WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 22 Your birthday today: You enler upon a year of consoli- dation of prior gains, rescue and retrieval of mishandled or neglected relations and re- sources. Come to terms with the past and its faults and errors, Ihen go on to create a simpler and sounder future. Today's natives travel or work hard to pursue know- ledge, often d e v e 1 oping special skills in literary work, astrology.

Surgery effective acne treatment Dr. Lamb My son, where (he old ones are cut out particularly in young people. At who is 22 years old, had acne when he was younger. Now his chest is full of scars that are hideous and. he is very much ashamed of them. He went to a dermatologist who said they were "keloids." The dermatolo- gist gave him radium treat- ments, but they did not help. Is there anything that can be done about removing these keloids or scars? If so, how long will he be in the hospital? I would ap- preciate any help from you. Dear Reader Some plastic surgeons differentiate between large, overgrown scars (hyper- trophic scars) keloids. A keloid begins where healing of injured skin occurs. It can form a skin tumor. Depending upon the lo- cation and size, it can be unat- tractive. New keloids can form older ages, keloids are less Speed limit may be dropped EDMONTON (CP) The new Progressive Conservative cabinet in Alberta will consider "in due course" requests to in- crease or eliminate the speed limit on Highway 2 between Edmonton and Calgary, High- Dear Dr. Lamb I have a question about having the lubes tied in a woman. I had been told by some people who should know that you clip the tubes, or the menbrane, but some women where I work say you can get this done in a doctor's office and that the doctor literally ties the tubes in a knot. Since I am thinking about having it done, I would like to know. Dear Reader The com- mon classical method is to cut the tube near the uterus com- pletely. The two cut ends are then lied shut in such a way that they are not likely to re- join. This is done on both sides and is often done at the time of a Caesarean section. Sectioning the tube is analo- gous to cutting the smaller tubes that drain the testicles, called the vas deferens in the male. The abdomen has to be entered to tie the tubes in a woman. There are some studies now in progress to do the proce- dure through a small tube in- serted Uirough the abdominal wall near the umbilicus. All new methods of steriliza- tion require some time to eva- luate their effectiveness, but this procedure can be done in an office. I think it is loo early to recommend it as the method of choice. Even with the open dropping the speed limit en- approach of cutting and tying tirely on one stretch of the high- the tubes, about one in 200 op- tray and replacing it irith a erafions fails lo prevent preg- slipulation that drivers travel nancy.

He said the government has received a number of letters from individuals about increas- ing the limit, which now is gen- erally 70 miles an hour during the day and 60 miles an hour at night. Gordon Taylor, highways minister in the previous Social Credit government, announced last June that his department was studying the possibility of likely to recur. The most effective treatment is surgical removal and, in sel- ected cases, x-ray to the skin areas over 'the new incisions. Yes, the scars you describe can be removed, at least in cer- tain cases. Your son would need lo see a plaslic surgeon. After he has examined your son, he could determine if lie had a reasonable chance of inv proving his situation or not You can locate a plastic sur- geon through your family doc- tor or through your county or state medical society.
