Vasectomy @ 1pm (2-8-16). Lingering, mild nausea. Is this normal? Vicodin & Valium taken 1 hr before. 3 valium taken within 4 hrs after. 29 yo male.

Having said that, the visceral (from internal organs) pain and discomfort is often hard to localize due to referred sensation and the way our nervous system works. The best would be to get in touch with your doctor so you it can be examined and discussed in details. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: The "zero tolerance" policy for asbestos fibers in the 1990's was politics, not science; after 9/11, tons of asbestos were released into the air and if the danger was what some militants had claimed, millions of people would have had to be evacuated. Even people who are heavily exposed usually don't die of it. I trust you see through the militant / scare story stuff but it's still good to avoid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The damage from asbestos comes from exposure to a lot of fibers. When there is a large exposure, either all at once or slowly over years, then the body's immune system is overstimulated. The fibers can't be cleared so they stay in the lungs and cause chronic irritation. Over time that causes damage that can lead to fibrosis that impairs breathing or, rarely, even cancer. ...Read more

Yes: In the old days, companies allowed workers to inhale a lot of the stuff and there's no question these caused fibrosis of the lungs ("asbestosis"), mesothelioma, and common lung cancer. The 1980s hoopla over asbestos in buildings where it's not being inhaled was driven by big-money and politics as even the epa eventually recognized. Avoid inhaling the stuff and you should be fine. ...Read more
