Cutting Long Tendon In Arm Because It Is No Longer In Track
What is the difference between a sprained wrist and a displaced wrist? There is no break in the bone itself but it is no longer in place.
Displaced: The wrist is made up of 8 "carpal" bones that articulate with the radius and ulna of the forearm and the 5 metacarpals of the palm. So there is no "wrist bone" per se. A sprained anything is simply inflammation and swelling. A displaced bone is one that is out of alignment with itself or at the joint. So a displaced wrist means 1 or more bones is out of alignment to another. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have growth plate in my right knee, leg is 1 inch longer than other, if taken out, is there a chance the leg will continue to grow longer than other?
Many risks: Yes, if growth plate activity continues after surgery, the leg may continue to grow. There's also a chance that the other leg continues to grown and then THAT leg is the longer one. You and your parents need to discuss risks & benefits with the surgeon, as well as alternatives, including waiting until your bones are fully mature before doing ANYTHING besides using a shoe lift. ...Read more
Why does my hamstring hurt? The pain itself is pinpoint and random. It lasts for a few seconds, occurs while i'm stationary and only in my left leg. While not severe, it is distracting, especially while i'm at work. There are no marks, swelling or redness
You : You could have a tendonitis of the muscle attachment. This is usually relieved with medications such as advil, (ibuprofen) stretching, or physical therapy. The worst thing that could cause leg pain is a blood clot however, so if you had pain, swelling, or new symptoms then please be seen for a leg ultrasound. ...Read more
I'm tight/stiff in my Achilles, no pain yet . Will a week off running be enough to stop it from becoming an injury? Is the stairmaster Ok instead?
Possibly: It is possible that if you have an overuse syndrome that involved your Achilles and is related to your running, that rest would help. A stair master would actually likely be harder on your Achilles that running, so I would avoid that. A bicycle would probably be a good alternative to give your Achilles some rest while you maintain your fitness. ...Read more

Have foot drop that seems to be getting better but lifting my foot takes a lot of concentration, is that the normal way recovery from this goes?
Variable: The cause of the foot drop often dictates the length of recovery. Injury to nerve roots during back surgery probably takes longer than pressure on the perineal nerve (which serves the muscle that brings the foot upwards) with a tight dressing. Continued physical therapy will help with your recovery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wondering what is the heart rate for doing labor work as in weeding the yard for a couple hours and is it dangerous if it's over 100 in the long run?
Heart rate at age 28: Your maximal predicated HR based on your age is 192 +/-10. If you're otherwise healthy, you can exercise to this number safely but you will get tired quickly as you approach it and will need to stop. 80% of your MPHR is 154. You should be able to exercise at this level for long periods of time. A HR of 100 is harmless - you could tolerate that forever. ...Read more

I got an ACL ligament surgery in march of right knee.The problem is that the leg is still not bending at fullest and also thigh muscles are weak.Plz help to recover fast.?
Followup visit: At this point after acl reconstruction, you should have about as much motion as you are going to get. Sometimes the motion is not just limited by lack of effort, and can reflect other problems. A meniscus repair that has not healed or acl graft positioning can cause stiffness that cannot be overcome. The muscle weakness you just need to work and push through! time for a recheck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In the morning, both ip thumb joints are locked up but release after popping. It is not painful but its new. As a 25 yr old artist, is this a concern?
Popping thumbs: You might have trigger finger (trigger thumbs). It is characterized by catching, snapping or locking of the involved finger flexor tendon, associated with dysfunction and pain. A disparity in size between the flexor tendon and the surrounding retinacular pulley system results in difficulty flexing or extending the thumb. See a hand specialist to confirm the diagnosis and to provide appropriate tx. ...Read more
If someone has chondromalcia, is the knee bigger than it's supposed to be? The inner side of kneecap is not as flat?
Yes: Usually joints are larger than their opposite because of fluid in the joint. Chondromalacia can cause fluid, ligament injury can cause fluid, injury to the bone can cause fluid. If injury is present for a long time, then bones are often stimulated to grow making even bones larger from osteophytes (bone spurs) and bone enlargement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

2cm lymph node on top of right carotid artery. Has not grown in 1 year. Is this okay as long as it does not grow or is it cutting off blood flow?
Probably ok: It's not cutting off circulation - your carotid artery is a thick walled, high pressure vessel that's not easily compressed. Lymph nodes in the neck are common and usually benign, but you should be carefully examined for other enlarged nodes in less common locations including on a chest x-ray before writing this 2 cm node off. The fact that it's not enlarging is very good. ...Read more

Is it okay for a broken leg to be healing with the bones not aligned? There is a big gap where it was a spiral and the bones are sitting wonky
