Has Anyone Every Run Marathons After Having Had A Bunionectomy
Bunion removal, bunionectomy, or correction of bunion deformity all refer to the same group of surgical procedures. Depending on how severe the deformity is a determination is made as to which procedure would work best. A bunion deformity is a deviation of the 1st metatarsal towards the opposite foot and of the great toe towards the outside of the foot. Correction can involve ...Read more
I had a total knee replacement three years ago I have done two marathons and walk and swim every day. I'm having significant pain. Is this normal?
Not normal : There are people with new knee replacements who do complete triathlons successfully. Although a person may have knee pain (even without a joint replacement) for a few days after a marathon I would not expect you to have severe pain for weeks after an event. Occasionally the hardware of the new knee replacement can loosen resulting in pain symptoms. Please follow up with your orthopedic doctor. ...Read more
1 year old having a seizure? My daughter is 1 and has been having seizures for months, she's had a EEG done and results where normal, and for 3 weeks she didn't have one so i was happy, and just half an hour ago she had one i think . She was sitting j
Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, this episode is also consistent with a "staring spell" or absence seizure. With the frequency of the seizures that you describe your daughter will most likely need to be started on a mediation. An eeg is a very sensitive test but does not always show epileptiform activity in between seizures. I would probably start your daughter on an anti-seizure medication to help prevent seizure activity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had sex with someone different a few days ago, since then I've had bladder/pelvic pain on a constant basis even though I used a condom?
Developing pain: so soon after intercourse suggests infection/prostatitis, but you did use a condom. This would seem unlikely, but probably worth checking out. More chronic pain might suggest some pelvic floor muscle dysfunction or problem. I would first see your doctor to have tests for urinary or prostate infection, and then go from there. Good luck! ...Read more

My daughter had a tummy tuck a year ago. She was just diagnosed with bc. If she has a double mastectomy, can she have successful reconstruction since ?
Yes: Having a tummy tuck does not interfere with breast reconstruction unless she wanted to use her abdominal tissue for the reconstruction. In most cases, tissue expander reconstruction would be performed. This gives excellent results with fast healing and normal resumption of her daily activities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long until i can run after having the brostrom procedure? I have been in a walking boot for 6 weeks and am just starting physical therapy.
Ask your ORS: Obviously this is a question for your treating surgeon based on his own treatment guidelines and how well you do over the next few weeks w/pt . After modified brostrum reconstruction the earliest I have released patients to jogging is 3 months( not hard running or cutting sports). Work hard w/ your therapist and follow your treating surgeons' directions. Best of luck! ...Read more
After a long run of 18 miles i started to feel a lite pain on back of knee. Should i be worry? I have a marathon in 3 weeks.
Back off: You should be starting your taper next week, so add a little recovery time now and test it out during shorter runs. Try to determine what you might have done differently that particular run ---terrain, speed, shoes, hydration, stride length, intervals, hills, sloped surface, etc. May be a one time thing, but this close to event, caution is best. Rest and recovery is critical at this time.Good Luck ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have had a cramp in my left calf for over a week. I walk about 10 miles a week and keep hydrated.I had a discectomy about 6 months ago. ?
You may need: to get checked for a blood clot or muscle injury. Given the amount of activity you put your calves through, and hydration, I doubt it is from sedentary lifestyle or dehydration :) Go see a healthcare provider to get tests and if they are all negative, keep walking and being active!! I love it !! ...Read more

Rest and ice: Rest and icing. I would consider seeing a physical therapist whom can hopefully suggest stretches to help you.

ECG says I might have Brugada syndrome. I have never fainted, feel fine and used to run marathons. Could I have something else?
Here are some...: Sorry to hear such diagnosis, which would not be given lightly since the affected patients may die of ventricular fibrillation - so called sudden adult death syndrome (SADS). Hence, bring this question directly to your cardiologist, although having wishful thinking of "not me" has been common to many patients and their family at learning a bad news of suffering from a deadly disease. That is life! ...Read more
What is the best way to fully recover from deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. I used to run marathons, but my breath is just not the same.?
Steadily train.: A pulmonary embolism is kind of like a heart attack of the lung. A portion of the lung has been damaged and the remaining alveoli and blood circulation have to pick up the slack. As you train, and steadily increase your activity, you will develop greater lung capacity and endurance. Though you may not return to your previous capability, it could be possible with continued effort.. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I feel my breathing seems shallow, as though I had just run a race along with giddyness. Is it the UC or the methotraxate inj. causing it. Advice.
Shallow breathing: You need to bring this to the attention of your doctor who will likely refer you a pulmonary doctor. ...Read more
I have alpha thalassemia trait. Are there programs I can do to train myself to run a race without passing out or getting too fatigued?
Like normal...: A person with Alpha thalassemia trait (two mutated Alpha chain genes and two normal) usually has no symptoms. You may be slightly anemic, but this should not affect your exercise performance. Perhaps if you were running ultra marathons in the alps you might see an effect, but otherwise you should be able to train normally and do great. Regardless of Alpha thal trait, stay hydrated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a bunionectomy yesterday and today and it hurts! 2 vicodin doesn't help. Is it okay to take 3 then?
I got a bunionectomy in June and was instructed to wear supportive shoes from now on. Would Nike Zoom SB Stefan Janoski be considered supportive?
Recovery from surger: This depends on your overall health and diet and lifestyle. Optimizing healing comes from optimizing your immune system. Eat a properly balanced diet of whole grains, protein and essential, unsaturated fats. Reduce your stress. Drink plenty of water and follow all post-op instructions completely. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not severe.: Unfortunately, yes, recovering from surgery can be painful, but the more you elevate after surgery, the less you swell, and the less you swell, the less you hurt. Your surgeon will give you a boot or shoe, and pain medication, too: don't worry, they're not out to torture you. We make sure you have the tools to be as comfortable as possible in the weeks after surgery! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
