Your surgeon should know when and if this needs to be performed. ...Read more

What needs to be done if you do not have a bowel movement everyday, or once a week?

Well. . . : Bowel regularity is different for each of us, and once a day may not be "normal" for many. Once a week is probably "not enough" and may qualify as constipation. Treat accordingly with stool softeners, bulk agents, increased fluids, suppositories, enemas, or disimpaction and doctor visit. Roughly in that order of severity. When bowel habits change, view it as a warning sign--see your doctor. ...Read more

Do i expect to have surgery same day as MRI if I have a meniscus tear? Or would I have to wait? I need to figure this out before prom.

Do i expect to have surgery same day as MRI if I have a meniscus tear? Or would I have to wait? I need to figure this out before prom.

Not emergent: While it would be nice to have surgery the same day as an mri, it usually takes some number of days to get the MRI back, read by the radiologist or surgeon, determine if surgery is appropriate, and then schedule surgery. Surgery can be done soon, or it can be delayed for a period of time if your symptoms are manageable (and the tear is not too large). ...Read more

If you have hemorroids and you notice blood in your stool & see it when you wipe, how do you determine if its the hemorroids or something else?

look inside: First, hemorrhoids do not typically cause blood "in" the stool. Bright red blood on the toilet paper or a few drops into the toilet would be common but not in the stool. The main this we would want to rule out would be a tumor or cancer, which would be unusual but not rare in a 31 year old. Tumors also usually do not bleed much. There is no reliable home test to tell the difference. ...Read more
