Breast Stroke Swimming
Im quiet an active adrenalin junkie person such as out door sports , scuba diving, motocross ect. Will a breast augmentation limit me with activities?
No limitations: The short answer is that breast implants should not limit your lifestyle. However, it is important that they not be too large and that you are aware of all of the ramifications in terms of implants in athletic women. I would recommend asking your plastic surgeon for specific information on this. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

This is where having a doctor whom you trust and who knows your history and all about you makes all the difference. (your question exemplifies why computers are never going to be able to practice medicine!). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How can type 1 inner ear decompression sickness be differentiated from combined hypothermia, overexertion, and exhaustion? Normal dive, 47ft for 38min with an ascent rate of 58 ft/min. Flooded drysuit in 38f water combined with 200 yd hike uphill with 80
Inner : Inner ear dcs is an extremely rare form of dcs and is not likely based on your dive profile. It is most commonly seen in deep dives with heliox mixtures (edmonds et al, diving and subaquatic medicine, 2002) and may be associated with changes of breathing gas at deep depths as a result of isobaric counterdiffusion (brubakk and neuman, physiology and medicine of diving, 2003), neither of which was present in your dive history. Additional history with regard to the onset of symptoms (during the dive, immediately after dive, delayed onset after dive) could help to differentiate iedcs from other etiologies. It would also be helpful to know whether the symtoms have improved or resolved, and if so, when. Physical examination would provide helpful information in making an accurate diagnosis. Iedcs can be associated with acute sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo and tinnitis (ringing in the ears). Inner ear barotrauma may present with many overlapping symptoms, so direct visualization of the ear drum and hearing tests would be mandatory before a diagnosis of iedcs can be made. Although i believe that iedcs is very unlikely in your case, the only way to be sure is to be examined by a qualified physician. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

57 year old female. Can half an hour of swimming breast stroke every day be the cause of Trochanteric Bursitis?
Trochanteric bursa: As you might imagine, it is possible your activity is the cause. A good question is does swimming make it worse? Visit your orthopedic surgeon for a physical exam to evaluate your pain. You also have lumbar spinal disease and may have bone spurs or other etiological factors.

Tamoxifen & Strokes: Tamoxifen can slightly increase the risk of blood clots, potentially leading to a stroke or a dvt. This is not unlike birth control pills and is especially concerning in high-risk people (heart disease, smokers, prior clots).

Excellent exercise. ...Read more
