    Ask Dr. Oz Season 4: Post-Op #37 - Tomato Storage

    Audience member Theresa asks Dr. Oz and his food expert if she should keep tomatoes in the fridge, or out on the counter.
    Audience member Theresa asks Dr. Oz and his food expert if she should keep tomatoes in the fridge, or out on the counter.

Audience member Adam has a 13 year old son who has a right aortic arch (transverse Aorta). This condition produces a vascular ring with compression of the esophagus and/or airway, and it is infrequently associated with other congenital cardiac anomalies. Adam tells Dr. Oz that his son’s pediatrician says there is not much they can do for this condition. Adam asks Dr. Oz if this is true.

Dr. Oz explains to the audience that the human body is born with two aortas. One aorta eventually gives way, but in cases like Adam’s son, an arch is developed. Dr. Oz agrees with the pediatrician’s diagnosis. Dr. Oz states that surgery is a possibility, but it is a very serious one.

Dr. Oz enforces that the most import questions to ask when considering surgery are; “what is my problem?” and “what is being fixed?” He states that there are two reasons to operate – to take care of the symptom(s), or to prevent illness.

Audience member Doris gets a stomach muscle spasm when she stretches in the morning (while bending over at the waist) and wonders what it means.

Dr. Oz suggests that Doris try side-to-side stretching first. Dr. Oz suggests that the condition might be an indicator of a breathing issue as well.
