When is it safe to resume exercise after a laparoscopic tubal ligation?

WhenYourBodyTellsYou: Technically that operation is minimally invasive so you should bounce back pretty quickly. However, each individual is different.

Do the anti-Tb drugs help to overcome a condition of persistent blood and pus in urine after fulguration?

Urinary TB: TB or tuberculosis most commonly affects the lungs but the renal system can also be involved. Certainly the usual TB meds should help, but if there is no response I suspect resistance to the drugs may be a problem. India is known for some TB resistance.

An Aquascan diagnosed bilateral tubal occlusion. But a subsequent laparoscopy showed bilateral fill and spill. Which result should I believe?

After bilateral laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal, menstrual cycles have gone from 32 days to 25. What does this mean? I 'm 30 years old.

After bilateral laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal, menstrual cycles have gone from 32 days to 25. What does this mean? I 'm 30 years old.

Maybe Bad news: The thing that I would be worried about most is that the doctor removed too much normal ovarian tissue and took out a lot of your eggs. When you remove a cyst in someone who may want children in the future, you must fully separate the cyst from the normal tissue around it or it can send someone into menopause or harm their ovaries. Would see a specialist right away ti get tested ...Read more
