Manic depression: "manic depressive" illness is an older term for bipolar disorder. "borderline" is a type of personality disorder -- very different problem although affective instability may be part of both. The drivers for each are different, borderline pd generally going "off" when fears of abandonment are triggered. Bipolar (manic depressive) d/o doesn't require that for a manic or depressive episode.

You need to ask the : Doc who did your surg as that doc knows how everything went and u didnt say what type of surg you had, laparoscopy, robot open? And did you have any problems after like bleeding or infection, etc. Or none, so call you surgeon and ask him or her, and don't go sue the doc unless there was really something that happened or was done that was below the standard of care so get a 2nd opinion if neces.

Blisters under: Toenails are quite common in sports participants. If you're able to drain it, apply a topical antibiotic and wrap it in a band aid, that's about the best you can do short term. You might want to check on the size of the soccer boots. If too small, they can be making things worse. Also, i hope the coach/trainer has them wearing running shoes for the pure running workouts.
