Why do I need to squeeze up and down my penis to get the rest of the urine out. I have feeling that more urine needs to extract. Same after sex &semen?

Why do I need to squeeze up and down my penis to get the rest of the urine out. I have feeling that more urine needs to extract. Same after sex &semen?

Here are some...: To drain the last drops of urine or semen after peeing or ejaculating relies on the functional anatomical structure of the urethra, which could be the innate weakness of bulbourethral muscles, high tight suspensory ligament of penis, acquired urethral stricture, etc. Resulting in impedance of draining last drops. So, what you've done is right suggesting your good adoption and adaption to life. ...Read more

I had my gallbatter removed three days ago. I am feeling the same awful pain as before the surgery, but its on the left side and in my back. Why?

See your doctor...: If you are having severe pain after surgery you need to see your surgeon to figure out what is going on.

During a laparoscopic removal of the gallbladder the abdomen is filled with gas and this can cause shoulder and back pain post-operatively. But this pain could also be a sign of pancreatitis. ...Read more

The same polyps symptoms reocurred 3 months after the polyps have been removed after a colonoscopie. Does a colonoscopie need to be done immediately?

The same polyps symptoms reocurred 3 months after the polyps have been removed after a colonoscopie. Does a colonoscopie need to be done immediately?

Not necessarily: If you had a thorough exam and all polyps were removed 3 months ago, and symptoms have recurred, doubtful due to new polyps as they do not grow that fast. Your symptoms were probably not due to the polyps and as yet have not been correctly diagnosed. I would discuss with your endoscopist ...Read more

I had my appendix removed 3 months ago and I'm starting to get the same pain I had before it was removed. What could this be?

I had my appendix removed 3 months ago and I'm starting to get the same pain I had before it was removed. What could this be?

Other cause?: For what reason was the surgery done? Did you have actual appendicitis? Or just right lower quadrant pain? How bad is the pain? What makes it worse? Did the pain you have now pre-date the appendectomy or begin after the surgery? Does food affect it? Activity? What did your surgeon say about the pain? Is it slowly improving or worsening or staying the same? Need a bit more info. ...Read more

I have four cysts on my head that sometimes hurt and they won't go away. Got one removed and anotherone grew in the same place?

Cysts on head: Short hair?? - sounds like ingrowing hairs causing local inflammatory cysts. You might want to try different shampoos and have your hair stylist check the areas but ultimately local treatment - OTC medication used for acne might help or surgical drainage may be necessary.
Good Luck ...Read more

Return to surgeon: Best return to your surgeon and tell him/her your complaint, only him /her know the condition of your abdomen and gallbladder at that time and know whether gallbladder is the culprit. Maybe it that and something else, the rest of us could give you lot of a if but hopefully your surgeon will put you on the right tract to wellness. ...Read more

Do bumpy moles grow back the same if you get them removed?

Do bumpy moles grow back the same if you get them removed?

Get a consult: Some moles which are flat can be covered with make up, but seek out a consult from a facial plastic surgeon about more permanent removal. Some moles can be shaved off with good cosmetic results while some require full excision. I have found many patients are highly appreciative about their mole removals. ...Read more

Should I get my extra toe removed its really embarrassing to me. I want to be the same as everyone else. : (

Go for it: If it is really embarrassing for you, have it done. It is an operation, but not a very major one. It can actually be a little tricky, so have it done by someone who has a lot of experience with it. ...Read more

I have a gluteal abcess. I had one two years and had it removed surgically. Again got one near the same area. Need gone remedy.

I have a gluteal abcess. I had one two years and had it removed surgically. Again got one near the same area. Need gone remedy.

Same remedy: Each abscess needs to be excised surgically followed by antibiotic treatment. If there is a reason for you to be susceptible to getting abscesses, then the remedy you seek depends on addressing the susceptibility (be it a primary immune deficiency, metabolic problem such as diabetes, occupational or other cause for increased exposure, etc.) ...Read more

A thorn pricked my finger. I removed it but after a day or so the same spot is picnching me and there is a blak dot. What exactly should I do?

A thorn pricked my finger. I removed it but after a day or so the same spot is picnching me and there is a blak dot. What exactly should I do?

Sporotrichosis: Also referred to as "rose gardener's disease" is a fungal infection which may be caused by a thorn prick. Aside from a rose thorn prick, other forms of exposures may lead to this condition as well. If left untreated an ulceration at the site of the infection may take place. Potassium iodine saturation may cure the problem but a tedious task. Itraconazole and Fluconazole are effective. ...Read more

I had an esophageal duplication cyst removed in June 2014. What is the possibility of this recurrence of the cyst? I am having the same symptoms again

Talk to your GI: It should not recur, but scarring might develop, which could cause similar symptoms. Talk to the doctor who first diagnosed it, or the surgeon who removed it. Perhaps another study is needed. ...Read more

I've had the same kidney stone for years. Dr isn't worried because it only hurts occasionally. I want it removed, how do I go about this?

Depends: It depends on the size and type of stone. Some stones can be pulverized by sound waves, lithotripsy, and the smaller fragments can pass through the urine. If that is not an option the stone may need to be removed surgically, either minimally invasive or open surgery. ...Read more

My gall bladder was removed 21 years ago. I am experiencing the same severe pain in same place as when I would have a gall bladder attack.

My gall bladder was removed 21 years ago. I am experiencing the same severe pain in same place as when I would have a gall bladder attack.

Talk with you doctor: Ocasionally complications can arise after the galbladder is removed. This can include new stone formation or blockage in the bile duct, or a problem with the pancreas. Sometimes there is scar tissue that also causes a problem. You will need an evaluation, but if you are vomiting, turning yellow, have a fever, or if you have severe pain, an ER visit is reasonable. ...Read more

Colon polyps.: If your sister's colon polyps were the precancerous type, called adenomatous polyps, then you should have a colonoscopy now rather than waiting until age 50. They do run in families, and removing them before they can become cancer can be life-saving. I would see a gastroenterologist immediately. Do not delay. Good luck. ...Read more

Can thyroid nod be removed with parathyroidectomy. All thyroid half or what at the same time?

Yes: Thyroidectomy, partial or even total can be performed at the time of parathyroidectomy via the same incision. Discuss the surgery with your surgeon in detail before surgery. If doubt, get a second opinion from another head and neck surgeon. ...Read more
