I am missing my L5 vertebrae, is it necessary to have back surgery?

Hi doctors! recently i got a eye surgery to fix alignment of 2 muscles on my left eye, just wondering how long before it will be cured n heal?

Hi doctors! recently i got a eye surgery to fix alignment of 2 muscles on my left eye, just wondering how long before it will be cured n heal?

Depends what U mean: By 'cure'? Your surgery involves follow up for the next 3 months. Did you mean realignment? That may depend on how your brain is integrating the muscle realignment. Post op, normally you should give yourself up to 8 weeks. So, call your ophthalmologist and ask, as each surgeon has their own timetable, and that is the most accurate answer. If you are still having double vision, s/he needs to know. ...Read more

Hi, my penis has downward curve but i want it to be straight or upward curved , i don't wanna any surgery i wanna fix it by doing some excercise .?

Hi, my penis has downward curve but i want it to be straight or upward curved , i don't wanna any surgery i wanna fix it by doing some excercise .?

No luck: It is unlikely that either surgery or exercise will change to curvature at this point. Most likely, the curve is due to a small amount of scar tissue developed when the penis becomes aroused. As long as the curve is not interfering with the function of intercourse, i would recommend leaving it alone. ...Read more

Is it possible to fix my lazy eye when I already had surgery on it before?

Is it possible to fix my lazy eye when I already had surgery on it before?

Possible: It depends on whether you are asking about the lazy "vision" or lazy "position" of the eye. Lazy position can be addressed based on extent of squint and available muscle tissue. Lazy vision (amblyopia) can be addressed using appropriate refractive surgery (you may not have 20/20 capacity but at least to the best vision you have with your glasses). You may need your eye doctor to review this with. ...Read more

Hello, I have this huge hump in my back, I cannot tell if it is my posture, or if it is my spine. But when I bend over the hump is very noticeable.

Hello, I have this huge hump in my back, I cannot tell if it is my posture, or if it is my spine. But when I bend over the hump is very noticeable.

First thing to do is: -have an exam by an orthopedic surgeon, as it sounds like a scoliosis. If it is indeed the case, a spine surgeon, may be in order. @ 17 there R not many options if the curve is significant. Then surgery is the best. As U have stopped or almost stopped growing, bracing is not an option. Get in Soon . U need 2 talk 2 Ur parents about this as they R in control of Ur medical care until 18. ...Read more

When i was younger i had surgery to fix a problem with my penis which was curved the doctor said that it will grow to a normal size but it didn't ?

Normal size varies: Majority of men concerned about having a small penis in fact have normal size penises. Micropenis ia an adult is defined as 7cms (@ 3/4 inches) erect. Average erect length is 5 -6 inches, which is a perfectly functional length.Looks much smaller if flaccid, especially in the cold. Beware marketers promoting herbs, drugs or procedures to achieve penile enlargement, only their bank balance enlarges. ...Read more

I have a bone spur on top of the patella? I know it will have to be removed, but I am worried about the patella tendon. How is this surgery performed?

I have a bone spur on top of the patella? I know it will have to be removed, but I am worried about the patella tendon. How is this surgery performed?

Do not worry: A bone spur on top of the patella is a sign of chronic inflammation of the quadriceps tendon and may be seen in patients that sustain a quadriceps tendon rupture--most often men in their 40s and 50s. Most bone spurs rarely involve the joint and their presence alone does not warrant surgery. With physical activity, proper warm up and a cool down period that includes gentle stretching can help. ...Read more

I was wondering what the best preferred way to cure pectus excavatum was? I'm not sure what my hallar index is, I just know my first fits in it. Help!

I was wondering what the best preferred way to cure pectus excavatum was? I'm not sure what my hallar index is, I just know my first fits in it. Help!

Better left alone: p.excavatum is not a serious abnormality and usually causes no problems. If it is very disfiguring I would ask a thoracic surgeon to evaluate but remember the scarring from surgery may be worse than the condition. Important in women wanting de-colletage. This causes no physical symptomatology.I would live with and accept it. thank you ...Read more
