Had open henia surgery. Job requies lifting 75 lbs and pushing up to 150 lbs.How long after surgery before I can go back to work?
6-8 Weeks: Depending on your overall health, and if you are a smoker or non-smoker it could be anywhere from 4-8 weeks.

No: If you're just getting back into exercising, start with walking or low-impact aerobics. You'll need a good, basic athletic shoe, which shouldn't break your bank account.

I want to join the air force but have bad vision. Will getting lasik surgery impede my acceptance?
No it should not: I suggest reviewing what the requirements are for the air force prior to undergoing the surgery. You would like to specifically confirm that doing lasik (versus prk) will not disqualify you from the air force and what must be the uncorrected and best corrected vision after surgery to still qualify. I suggest showing that paperwork to the surgeon and make sure they are comfortable filling out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Penis will noe grow larger if puberty incomplete. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Try to accept your present height as at your age you are finished growing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
