kerry: in fox 5 health news, doctors have performed the first successful uterus transplant in the u.s. the patient is a 26-year-old woman. steve: joining us, dr. devi. this is -- there's a lot to talk
5:45 pm
this is not anything to serve -- to head into willie nilly. there's massive potential for >> i agree. risk. itself. the second thing is once the uterus is in your body, it's carrying immune cells from the person it came from. it will look at your cells and think you're a bacteria or virus or something else threatening and attack you. you have to protect yourself by taking immuno suppressive drugs. steve: you have to have it taken out at some point, right? >> usually. for life saving transplants, you'll accept the risks because your life is at stake. it's going to stay with you as long as it survives or as long as you survive. with this uterus, the only purpose is to allow you to carry
5:46 pm
after that, you don't need it. maybe for future children. they'd remove it at that point. for women who want to experience pregnancy, this is probably miraculous development. there's a lot of debate about it because it's not life saving and there are so many risks. kerry: this was the first successful transplant in the u.s. but it has been successful overseas. >> it has. there was controversy there. not because of the uterine transplants, but for other reproductive organs and the hands and face. the difference between those and others are that they're more psychological risks. these are personal organs as opposed to life saving organs. the people had trouble with that. they felt they were reminded of a dead person more than other organ recipients. steve: there's a lot going on. it's interesting. we continue to make amazing medical breakthroughs. whether it becomes mainstream,

5:48 pm
when you go out of your reach, that's when the muscle gets -- it gets injured and damaged, but as it repairs that, it grows and becomes stronger. exactly. so if you do something that's overwhelming or if you do something you can do but do it too much, these are the repetitive traffics like typing and using the back muscles. the muscle gets fatigued and sometimes it's too much. even those activities you have to watch out for. kerry: arms one day. legs the next. no more benching 500 pounds, steve. steve: that's all i care about. kerry: thank you. nick gregory? nick: well, those are good points. that's true. when you do your workouts, it's the last two or three reps when you're pushing the muscle -- as long as you keep the form. you've got to keep the form. if you break form, don't do that rep.
