t Page 2-B SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS —Thursday August 25 1977 Your Health By George C. Thosteson. M.l). Piles not controlled can recur Dear Dr. Thosteson: Please send me your booklet on hemorrhoids. I'm enclosing a quarter and stamped, addressed envelope for it. My husband was referred to a surgeon for his piles, but surgery was not recommended for him. lie was told to stay off work a while and take three hot baths a day and lay in bed, which he did. They went away and the doctor said they wouldn't come back. They did. Now he cannot sit comfortably. Will he need surgery now? — Mrs. O.K. This sounds like a success story turned sour. It sounds as though your husband got. some good advice. Most adults are troubled to some extent by piles (or hemorrhoids), which are varicose veins in the rectal area. In some cases radical treatment (surgery) is not required to keep them under control. The surgeon wisely chose the conscrvation approach — therapy of rest, hot baths, etc. \\hen the doctor said they would not come back, he undoubtedly meant they wouldn't — ________________________ if he continued to avoid things that can bring them back. I suspect your husband did not follow through. Piles do tend to recur, but this chance can be minimized by avoiding straining at stool, constipation. and long periods of standing. The hot baths might have been continued even after the problem subsided, perhaps on a reduced schedule. Now, your husband should return to the doctor who diagnosed the piles earlier. It they have passed the point of no-return, it could be that surgery is the only alternative. Perhaps injection to "dry out" the varicose«) wills is still possible. And there is always the chance that he will be started on the same program of control that worked before for him. The booklet you asked for might help him tn carrying out such a program Vasectomy Dear Dr. Thosteson: My husband had a vasectomy four years ago after our second child was born I now want to adopt, but my husband doesn't want to. I don’t want him to go through the operation to reverse the vasectomy so we can have a baby. Is it possible to extract sperm from his testicles so that I can be artifieaially inseminated — Mrs. L.M Prior to attempting reversal of a vasectomy surgeons usually perform a biopsy to study the vitality (or lack of it) in sperm still being produced. It is usiiallv lower alter the vasectomv. This is not done lor artificial insemination. Some men do have some of their ''perm frozen prior to a vasectomy as a hedge against the future. Chest pains Dear Doctor: Is an occasional tight feeling in the chest an indication of anything? 1 haven't gone to a doctor for several years, and can't bring myself to go without more definite information. I am 69. — .1 AT' I hope by the time you read this you will have seen your doctor for an investigation of these pains. The classic sign of an impending heart attack is a discomfort in the chest. Some describe it as pain, others as a tightness in the center of the chest beneath the breast bone. In an actual attack the sensation may last as long as an hour. However, about a third of those who eventually have full-scale attacks report these earlier, but ignored warning pains that were more fleeting — lasting only a moment or two. No plivsician would think you silly for reporting such significant symptoms, especially at your age. So. reporting such significant symptoms, especially at your age So, without panic, go to the doctor, whether you have any repeat episodes or not.

Waiting for Rem HOLLYWOOD - Donald Moffat is part of the Los Angeles Actor’s Theater, with people like Ralph Waite and Dana Flcar. Together they performed in "Waiting For Godot,” which was aired recently on PBS after its L A. run. Now Moffat’s waiting for something, or somebody else — Rem. That’s the name of the character lie’s going to be playing in the upcoming CBS scries, "Logan’s Run." The series is loosely based on the movie of that name which wasn't a big box office smash, but was notable for its fantastic sets and special effects. If you saw the movie, you’re probably wondering who Rem was. Wonder no more — Rem wasn’t in the movie. In the series, Logan and his girl friend wander out of the doomed city and, each week, they find some new settlement. At the first of these, they come upon an android civilization, and Rem is the most sophisticated of the androids and goes with them the rest of the scri("-. Interesting Moffat isn't quite sure yet how lie'll play Rem. He does know that, because Rem is so advanced. technologically, he will speak and think and react as a human would. That makes him more interesting to play than if he were, say, a monotone-talking, non- reacting assemblage of nuts and bolts. Moffat himself is that strangest of creatures — ;m Englishman who has lost his English accent, lie says that is because of two considerations. First, the part of England he comes from — the west — speaks without Rs. anyhow, so he had a head start. “And. in the second place,” lie says, “I worked very bard to lose it. I wanted to lose it.” He made the move when he was 26. He bad been reasonably successful in England — appearing at the Old Vic and in such films as “Pursuit of the Graf Spec,” which, as he says, is still on the late show every week — but he wasn’t overwhelmitigly content nevertheless. Political “1 moved,” he says, “for political reasons. I wasn't a very happy Englishman. 1 have become a very happy American.” When lie first arrived here, he went with his wife, an American girl, to her home state, Oregon. He felt that perhaps DONALD MOFFAT ...Rem lie should try a new life, to go along with his new- country. So lie worked in Oregon as a bartender and a lumberjack. “But, after six months,” he says, ”1 realized Hi ¿it I was an actor and I would always be an actor. And an actor must act. So I started acting again. " After a somewhat slow start, business picked up And he says he hasn't had more than ten days off between parts — except when he wanted to take the time — in the last 20 years or so. He worked for a long time on Broadway, then was part of the late APA Phoenix Reportory Company. Movies and TV He appeared in many movies and in dozens of TV shows, and, for one short while, was part of a series. He played the minister in “The New Land." a noble try a few seasons back. His present wife, Gwen Arner. was iti "The New Land” with him. Between his children and her children, there are four. The oldest. Wendy, was just married in New Jersey. Moffat, of course, attended the ceremony. He says it was a lovely wedding. Wendy is a medievalist and her new husband is a historian. They had a civil ceremony which they devised and wrote themselves. Moffat says his daughter and son-in-law have decided that v<sfie will not change her name. The only problem they face is what last name to give the kids — her name, or his name, Kaufman, or a combination of the two, such as Moflman or Kaufat. Tile problem lias not yet bgeti resolved. Actress prefers movies There are still man’y actors who prefer not to do television, believing they will have a rosier future if they stick to feature films. One of them is young Jennifer Ashley, Who is making a good career out of low budget films Uke “The Pom Pom Girls" and "Towing." She says she has only done two TV parts —she was on one episod£*of “The F.B.I.” and one “Planet of the Apes” — and doubts she'll do anymore. *• m “Television doesn't offer good parts to women,” Jennifer says, "while low budget movies do. I keep working in these movies and the parts are good, so I’m happy.” ________ Stlut ______ MEOHJM THICK COBN TORTILLAS TOM JONES Whirlpool TOM JONES SAYS; WITH OUR LARGE VOLUME BUYING POWER AND LOW, 10W OVERHEAD AND NO SALESMAN COMMISSIONS TO PAY, tyE PROMISE YOU THE FINEST PRICE AND SERVICE AND INSTALLATIONS.
