Possible: This technique supposedly offers the advantage of causing little or no disturbance of facial sensation. Nevertheless, complications such as paresthesias, dysesthesias, and anesthesia dolorosa (pain in an area that is without sensation) have been reported. Rec.: talk to your surgeon for more information and education. Take care. ...Read more

On lovenox, (enoxaparin) surg. Tomorrow. Warfin lifer. Removing mesh from hernia placed 5mo ago. How long approx. Is this procedure?

Can't tell here: Would need much more detailed information. Where is the mesh? How large is the mesh? Where was the mesh placed and in what layer? Why is the mesh being removed? Infection history? What are the other medical conditions? Only your surgeon can tell you what surgery will be needed and how long surgery may take. ...Read more

Skin Staples: I am not sure why you still have the staples at your incision site. Ask your doctor if it can be removed by now. If there are no signs of infection or inflammation, you should have no problem playing badminton. ...Read more

Laprascopic ovarian cyst removal with ablation. I have a cruise scheduled 17 days post op. Am i crazy? Recovery time? Plane ride?!?

Fine: You'll be fine. You probably won't be on any pain meds at all, assuming no complications with your surgery. Most important, because you're 42, is just to make sure that you prevent any blood clot by moving around frequently. Get up, if you can, every hour or so on your plane ride for circulation. Check out exercises you can do with your legs while sitting on plane to prevent blood clot. ...Read more

Mum, 64, had successful lap surgery removed right ovary & cyst. Post op care? Also water boils near incision sites. Using lactofine lotion on them ok?

Mum, 64, had successful lap surgery removed right ovary & cyst. Post op care? Also water boils near incision sites. Using lactofine lotion on them ok?

Follow up: After laparoscopic surgery, most patients can resume normal activities relatively quickly. Consult your surgeon in this regard. "water boils" near incision sites are frequently blisters related to the adhesive in the dressings used to cover the incisions. Keep these sites clean and dry, and see your surgeon in his office for a postop visit as directed by him. ...Read more

 2 weeks crossover toe surgery.Lack of toe purchase.Today told might get better after Kwire removal,but screw is in toe.Now have limp.Permanent?

Nothing like time.: You need to relax. You are only two weeks into the surgery, and the foot is adjusting to the trauma. You must expect some residual swelling, pain and even some limping. Lack of toe purchase, can be due to several things, and it is too early to be talking about the permanence of anything. ...Read more

Can I remove my own surgical stitches?

Can I remove my own surgical stitches?

Not advisable.: It is always important for your surgeon to evaluate a surgical wound within the first few weeks after surgery, at which time the stitches can be removed. If the incision is not healing well, the sutures may be kept in longer or removed and replaced with special butterfly bandages. As always, it is best to follow your surgeon's advice. ...Read more

Bleeding(answer 1): First of all and probably most important is where exactly is the bleeding at? Next is for how long has the bleeding been taking place? Then, how much bleeding is there? If it is at the skin incisions, for just a day, and just spots of blood on your dressing, then I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep your routine follow up appointment. If it is from your vagina or skin incision, for just a day or ...Read more

What makes the prettiest scars-- stitches, glue or staples?

What makes the prettiest scars-- stitches, glue or staples?

Glue or steristrips: The key to making the most invisible scars is lack of tension on the incision. This is accomplished by placing multiple deep sutures. The closure of the skin is best done with glue or steristrips. This will eliminate any scarring from sutures or staples. ...Read more

Trying to find out if I can go on canoe trip 16 days after surgery, 2 days after staples removed. Had laproscopic GB removal except one incision 4"?

Tippie canoe.......: In my experience, I have seen very few 16 day old surgical wounds that could be considered healed enough to risk developing an infection from being immersed in contaminated water. Ask your surgeon and see if he agrees. ...Read more
