How much pain can I expect after a Fulkerson osteotomy? Which pain medication is most commonly prescribed? When will the nerve block be done?

Varies: The pain varies some from person to person and surgeon to surgeon. But by definition, an osteotimy does involve a cut in the bone and so the pain is somewhat similar to a fracture. A block can help and is usually given immediately preoperatively. Typical pain medications used are oral narcotics such as hydrocodone or oxycodone. ...Read more

CRPS after injury/surgery. Pain dr- mild but will take time. Does it worsen without treatment? Options- nerve blocks, medication, physio- what's best?

CPRS, AND PAIN: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, or CRPS, formerly known as RSD or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is a progressive disease of the Autonomic Nervous System, and more specifically, the Sympathetic Nervous System. The pain is characterized as constant, extremely intense, and out of proportion to the original injury. The pain is typically accompanied by swelling, skin changes, are extreme sensitivity.
Treatment for CRPS, which usually includes a combination of physical therapy (physiotherapy) and medications, is much more effective if it starts soon after the onset of symptoms.
As the condition is very difficult to diagnose, it is not possible to make reliable estimates of the number of people affected. A significant number of patients never tell their GP (general practitioner, primary care physician) or doctor if their symptoms are mild. The National Health Service (NHS), UK, believes that approximately 1 in every 2, 000 accidents or incidents of trauma probably result in CRPS.
Although CRPS can affect people of any age, first symptoms tend to become noticeable in patients aged between 40 and 60 years. Experts say that more females are affected than males.
The severity of symptoms and frequency of episodes of CRPS vary enormously. Some individuals have repeated CRPS episodes throughout their life, while others have symptoms which go away forever after a few months.
Pain relievers.
Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers — such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen (Aleve) — may ease pain and inflammation.
Your doctor may prescribe stronger pain relievers if OTC ones aren't helpful. Opioid medications may be an option. Taken in appropriate doses, they may provide acceptable control of pain.
Antidepressants and anticonvulsants.
Sometimes antidepressants, such as amitriptyline, and anticonvulsants, such as gabapentin (Gralise, Neurontin), are used to treat pain that originates from a damaged nerve (neuropathic pain).
Corticosteroids.
Steroid medications, such as prednisone, may reduce inflammation and improve mobility in the affected limb.
Bone-loss medications.
Your doctor may suggest medications to prevent or stall bone loss, such as alendronate (Fosamax) and calcitonin (Miacalcin).
Sympathetic nerve-blocking medication.
Injection of an anesthetic to block pain fibers in your affected nerves may relieve pain in some people.
Intravenous ketamine.
Studies show that low doses of intravenous ketamine, a strong anesthetic, may substantially alleviate pain. However, despite pain relief, there was no improvement in function. ...Read more

I have had a blocked nose since early teens and I can never breathe through my nose despite all types of medication?

I have had a blocked nose since early teens and I can never breathe through my nose despite all types of medication?

Worth a visit: See your primary doc and find out if your obstruction is mechanical or something your "medicines" have triggered. Deviation of the bone in the middle or polyps both can mechanically obstruct air flow and may require surgery to improve. Overuse of common nose sprays can also injure the nasal membranes to the point they always remains swollen until you stop and let them heal. ...Read more

Is it safe for someone with a right bundle branch block to take the medications Elavil/Desryl seperate and/or together?

RBBB: Both these medications list cardiac conduction abnormalities, and RBBB is one, as contraindications to their use. I have seen patients with chronic, longstanding RBBB tolerate low dose Elavil in past years. Other antidepressants may be considered in such patients. Your pharmacist or a cardiologist would be better qualified to answer this question, however. ...Read more

Are there any medications or supplements that can open blocked arteries in the heart?

Are there any medications or supplements that can open blocked arteries in the heart?

Not exactly: Blockages in coronary arteries are made of cholesterol plaques. Blood thinners like Aspirin and fish oil can prevent clots from forming on plaques and causing attack. Statins may stabilize plaque and slow growth. Nitrates can keep the arteries from squeezing, relieving angina. Niacin and exercise can raise good cholesterol and sweep out the bad. Only "cure" is stent and/or bypass surgery. ...Read more

Can I have Atrial Flutter (AF) while wearing a pacemaker for complete heart block? Do I need ablation or it managable by using medication?

Can I have Atrial Flutter (AF) while wearing a pacemaker for complete heart block? Do I need ablation or it managable by using medication?

Complex question: Your best off using HealthTap Prime to ask this question, since it's complex & answer is nuanced. The only problem, as I see it, is that with ongoing AF, you can develop clots (thombus) that can dislodge & cause a stroke. Your heart RATE should be controlled by the pacemaker, so the only adverse effect of AF would be a stroke. This can be mitigated by anticoagulants (blood thinners). Use HT Prime. ...Read more
