Patience: That being said, if the pain is getting worse or you have associated fever you need to speak immediately to your surgeon. Not knowing what was done during your surgery, the possibility may exist of some type of leak, or infection. At least call the doctor and let him know your situation and let him decide how to follow this. ...Read more

Breathe: The co2 gas from laparoscopy (which I assume you had) normally goes away within 7 – 10 days after surgery. A bit is removed each time you breathe so get up, walk around, eat, and, above all, keep breathing and the gas wi be gone in a few days. The remaining pain is sure to the surgery and the port site placement. If pain continues, see your surgeon for an exam. ...Read more

It can cause folliculitis or inflammation of hair follicles. If you avoid shaving close that usually solves the problem. Also, you can see you doctor and they prescribe an antibiotic which helps it clear up faster. I hope I answered your question :) ...Read more
I have a big lower lip, part of it goes in my mouth& burns is there a surgery I could have 2 get rid of the pooch w/o getting rid of my lips fullness?
Identify cause first: Yes, surgical lip reduction can help reduce excess tissues but I am not sure what is causing the lip burning or whether that will dissipate following any surgery. See your pcp to diagnose the problem. If you have an inflammatory condition then that may cause burning sensation and may even cause some swelling and if that is treated then you may not need any surgery. ...Read more
Bunionette on left foot- painful to walk, wear shoes. Treatment options? Is surgery only way to get rid of it for good?
Mostly shoes..: Relief from the pain caused by a bunionette is based on the severeness of the bunionette deformity. Milder deformities can usually be successfully treated with a shoe style change or by wearing an accomodative type pad attached to the skin. As the severity increases, the need for surgical correction becomes a more suitable answer. Consult with a Healthtap specialist for a more directed answer. ...Read more
Is there any possible treatment to get rid of gas problem? Right now I am taking homeopathy medicines but its not beneficial.
Address the causes: Usually gas occurs because we don't fully digest our foods & the undigested food is fermented by microbes in our intestines. Avoiding foods you can't digest (possibly beans, gluten, cabbage, lactose from dairy etc.), taking digestive enzymes & correcting imbalances in flora often helps (check for candida ¶sites). Homeopathy can help too; if it hasn't helped consider trying different remedies! ...Read more

I was born with lymphedema in just my right foot. My sister and i both had surgery. Will that be permanent in getting rid of my lymphedema?
How does co2 laser resurfacing get rid of wrinkles and dark spots? I understand that the co2 laser damages the skin and forces it to heal itself. But I don't understand exactly how that gets rid of wrinkles and spots.
This is a good question. Total fx laser resurfacing (co2 laser) vaporizes the soft tissues of the face to eliminate/reduce sun spots, decrease and remove lines and wrinkles as well as reducing pore size. This is through the production of a controlled injury to the papillary dermis (upper dermis), after which replacement of damaged tissues with new healthy, compact collagen takes place. One also sees a more homogenous complexion of the skin tone (color) and the reduction of telangiectasias (small red capillaries) due to this injury and tissue replacement. Optimal results are seen over a 90 â 120 day timeline.
Be healthy and be well, james m. Ridgway, md. ...Read more
Would the CO2 laser I'm getting for raised acne scars get rid of the redness. Skin turns red with the slightest rubbing or touching...
No: The CO2 laser will not address the redness of your skin. Redness is usually due to telangiectasias, flushing, or rosacea. A different laser wavelength would be necessary to reduce redness (i.e., Pulsed dye lasers, Intense pulsed light, etc.). In fact, your redness will be slightly increased during the healing process. ...Read more
