I have my nipples pierced and my parents don't know. I have a laparoscopy in a couple weeks. Will my doctor tell them??

Depends: This may depend on your age. If you're below 18, and they are the legal guardian, it is possible. I would think however it would be unlikely. Usually, all piercings are removed during surgery due to the use of monopolar electric energy and the possibility of burning. I would strongly considered simply removing the piercings before the surgery, and replacing them afterwards. Hope this helps! ...Read more

There is a inexpensive outpatient ct scan looking at calcium score which could give you a handle on your risk factors if you are concerned. ...Read more

When I work with minors, I try to strike an agreement where the parents agree to allow me to keep confidentiality with their child so long as I agree to tell them when I think their child is in danger of suicide. Suicidal thoughts doesn't always mean danger. ...Read more
