Had my surgery and removed stone have a stent and string out of penis its tied in knot to short what happens is I get a erection? Please help me

Ask urologist or. ..: Leaving a thread attached to stent for self pulling-out is common; yet the length of thread is arbitrarily decided by urologist and occasionally it may be too short so restricting the "room" leading to discomfort for erection. If so, you may release the taping of the thread and let it go inside urethra for comfort. After erection and peeing, you will most likely see the thread reappear of pulling. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on what you mean by a 'dot'. If you have a growth on your cornea called a pterygium, which is a medical problem, this could affect your ability to have lasik. Most eye surgeons would take care of that first before giving you the refractive surgery. If the dot is a pingueculum, or sun damaged conjunctiva, then that might not be a problem. ...Read more

I have bow legs and heard you can get surgery to fix this. I am 26 and only 5 foot 4 inches and heard that the surgery makes you shorter is this true?

Probably not.: You can be born with bowed legs (genu barnum) or develop them secondary to medial (inner knee) joint arthritis. Generally surgery involves removal of a wedge of bone which would shorten the bone, but the once the correction of the angular deformity is done, it more than compensates for this. Imagine the letter "l" as your leg. If you straighten it out, you'll make it longer. ...Read more
