No!: For this type of injury, I'd highly recommend seeking professional help in terms of rehab.

Not find one: I tried to find one at the App Store and could not. Therapy foran Achilles tendon might be good to have your physician send you to a specialist

How many minutes does someone have to live after the aortic aneurysm ruptures?

Not many: It depends on how fast the blood is leaking. There sometimes is time to get the patient to the operating room and repair the aneurysm so it does not necessarly cause immediate death.

How can ovarian cysts rupture?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Trauma, over-filling: An ovarian cyst (a liquid-filled lump on the surface of an ovary) that keeps growing can get to several inches in diameter. Such a cyst could rupture from continued enlargement (like over-filling a water balloon) or from blunt trauma, which would likely cause great abdominal pain with internal bleeding, plus an ambulance ride to the emergency room.

Alot: While mechanisms of injury to these structures may be similar and in many cases treatment may be similar they are very distinct anatomically and in terms of function and healing potential. So it would be important to know the location, type and extent of injury.

What is the common response to rehabilitation after shoulder replacement surgery?

Dr. Edward Neilsen
Family Medicine 19 years experience
Typically good: Typically people do very well following shoulder surgery, even replacement. Many options exist for rehab. Some people require a short period of therapy in the hospital. Others are trained to do therapy at home. Still others go daily to weekly to a therapist's office for treatment. Talk to your orthopedist - they will know what would be best for you.

He needs to have sound knowledge of what's indicated and what's not and preferably have reliable experience in dealing with this type of patients.
