Peroneal nerve: Follow up with the surgeon to monitor improvement and pain control. Eat healthy in general. Supplements are not proven to help. Do physical therapy as prescribed. Good luck

I've had pain and problems with my low back for many years. What can I expect from myspine surgery?

Depends....: There are many types of back surgery for many different back conditions so answering specifically will be difficult; however, generally you can expect to be up and walking within 1-2 days after surgery. You'll also likely be limited in the amount of bending/twisting you are allowed to do, maybe even in a back brace. Pain/discomfort should be expected but diminishing. You may also have a catheter.

Depends: If you mean treat...I think not. You need antibiotics. But there are herbal med that boost your immune system and can speed the healing. Also vit d is very important. Start at 2000 iu per day and then get a blood level in a month.

Are there herbal supplements that can treat a pulmonary aspergillosis lung infection?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Depietro
Pulmonary Critical Care 35 years experience
No: Aspergillosis infects the lung when the immune system does not work well, or when the lung is damaged in some way, such as when there is a cavity or cyst in the lung that can become infected. It requires specific antibiotics, treatment of the underlying immune or lung problem and similar measures. There is no evidence that herbs of any kind do any good.
