Abbreviations!!

Post by maidmaz on Fri Oct 24, 2008 12:34 am

Hi Everyone,

After having a discussion with Monica about some of the Abbreviations used I have decided to start a thread to help any newbies understand the medical terminologies we use. I know I do this without even thinking that others may not know what we mean confused I thought it would be good to refer back to if any of us are having a bad brainfog day Rolling Eyes too. So if you have any to add feel free to jump in, I will start with a few that I can think off Idea With the brainfog going on it may take a while to come up with more lol! Please help me out if you can cheers

Take Care
Love and Hugs
xxxMaz I love you

Hi Maz,

I think this is a great idea! I know I had a hard time reading messages and not understanding the abbreviations. How about Rx? Does that stand for both pharmacy and prescriptions? Thanks.
