I have a keloid in hand which is increasing in size. It gives itching and pain. Can it be removed permanently by operation.?
Possibly: Keloids are odd looking soft tissue masses that occur in keloid prone individuals. They are frequently misdiagnosed and usually are confused with hypertrophic scars. Consult a plastic surgeon or dermatologist and try steroid injections first which can dramatically shrink the scar. Surgery accompanied by steroid injections, radiation therapy and or pressure garments can also be effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My doctor says that i need to have the bunions removed from the side of my feet is this a painful procedure?
Yes: The worst pain usually occurs 1 to 3 days after removal. At 42 years of age removing a wisdom tooth can be fairly traumatic. If your pain becomes extremely severe with burning sensation after day 3 or 4 then get back to the surgeon because you most likely have a dry-socket. If you have swelling in addition then an infection is present and you'll need antibiotics. Nsaids work fairly well for pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it likely that I will re-fracture the spondylolysis I have had surgery on (6 months postop)? Still have pain will this be a weak spot in the spine?
Unlikely: There are 2 surgical approaches to a spondylysis- a fusion or a direct repair. If you are still having pain, you would want to ensure your surgery is healed, a ct scan can show this for sure. If the surgery is healed, it will be the strongest part of your back and so it would be extremely unlikely you could injure it again. Much more likely that if you had an injury it would be other level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have a cast on foot due to a crack in bone. Does this take long to heal and have no pain and its only had cast on for 4 days is that a good sign.
NO: The bone will usually take 6-8 weeks to heal enough to take cast off, depending on type of fracture and the bone that is cracked. The fact that you have no pain means the cast is working, but it does not mean it can come off. The bone is weak and can get out of place with minor injury if you do not protect it with the cast. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
