A 21-year-old member asked:

Does the numbness after surgery improve? At what point can you assume any numbness is going to be permanent?

6 monts to a year: Without more detail i cannot be sure as i don't know what type of surgery was done, but if you mean numbness around the scar, that recovers slowly over 6 months to a year. Anything after that is probably permanent. If there is a large area of numbess on the far side (distal side) of the incision, it could sometimes need further treatment if the area of numbness is large or debilitating.

Can I have a flu shot in the thigh?

Yes.: It may not be as effective though. The shot is meant to be delivered into muscle, and depending on your fat distribution, the thigh may have a thicker layer of fat that prevents the needle from reaching the muscle.

How do I recover from an mid to upper quad injury?

RICE: When you strain muscles the best first thing to do is the "rice" principle. Rest, ice, compression, elevation. The next step is to get involved in a recovery program that includes stretching and strengthening that begins slow and progresses as your muscle heals. If things don't get better after 4-6 weeks then i would suggest getting evaluated by a physician.
