A medical commission is working to diagnose the illness of former prime minister of Ukraine and Batkivschyna Party Leader Yulia Tymoshenko. "We are currently conducting a range of diagnostic measures to [diagnose] the disease, then next we will finally decide on a strategy for treatment," a member of the medical team of the Health Ministry, Head of the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology at the Bogomolets National Medical University, Oleksandr Buryanov, said at a briefing in Kyiv on Friday.

He noted that they had already given certain recommendations to Tymoshenko.

"According to the commission's findings... the prescriptions include a bed rest to prevent possible complications," Buryanov said.

He pointed out that Tymoshenko was able to get out of bed and take care of herself, and that she could communicate.

When asked by journalists whether Tymoshenko's health had deteriorated during her stay in custody, Buryanov said that the commission examined the ex-premier on November 7 and 9, and didn't notice any deterioration during that time.

"There was a definite improvement, [and] we haven't noticed any deterioration so far," he said.

He also added that Tymoshenko was undergoing treatment. At present, the commission is made up of four doctors, and if necessary more specialists will be engaged, Buryanov added.

The doctor expressed his confidence that a final diagnosis would be made soon.

How do you know the specifics of these sexual tools? Are they the ones you're using? Creep!

My, my, my. Methinks we've found a Canadian without a sense of humor.

Actually, sonny, the V-12 diesel reference was a joke. You can't use anything bigger than a V or inline 6 to power the tool.

Now you go take your meds and go to bed.

The first post in this little sub thread was a joke and was treated as such. Get a life, sonny, and take your lib CN/USA PC garbage somewhere else. Or do you want to have me arrested for 'sexual harassment? If so, pack you lunch. Actually, my recommendation stands: Take your meds and go to bed, and while you are in sleepy town try to find some way to block your infantile insults and name calling. Trust me, we adults do NOT loose any sleep over you.

XXL? Wow! You seem to be very familiar with these things. Is that the size you use on your wife?
