5 wks into recovery of acl/meniscus tear surgery, I am still taking pain medicine. Is this normal?

Common, but: It's good that you are thinking ahead about how to handle long-term pain control w/out risk of addiction and other medical damage from over-use of opiates, etc. Discuss plans for pain management w/ the surgeon and/or your PCP. Consider your own search if they seem less helpful than you'd hope. Health psychologists can teach hypnosis and other techniques. Other possibilities too. ...Read more

What is best medicine to help rotor cuff tear pain, ibuprofen helps but I wake constantly at night in pain?

Difficult: THe best "medicine" is treatment of the rotator cuff - either time (some will heal) cortisone injection, physiotherapy or surgery. Ibuprofen, panadol etc can help you to tolerate the pain but won't fix it. Stronger pain relief (opiates) may appear to help help but at the risks of tolerance, dependence and other side effects May wish to discuss further treatment options with your GP. ...Read more

See ORS: A meniscus tear may feel better w/nsaids and pt but the meniscus will not heal w/this treatment. Turning, twisting and squatting activities may further tear the meniscus. They generally cause pain, sometimes popping or'catching' and swelling. See your ors. The tx. Of choice is arthroscopy w/meniscus repair vs. Resection. ...Read more

What drug is safe for 50yrs man for dry eyes. No prob in tears. Just dry eyes and feeling as if he has strange object in eye. Frequent eye blinking?

Dry eye: See an eye MD for confirmation of dry eye diagnosis. How do you know there is "no prob in tears"? Dry eye can result from deficiency in tears or problems in the oil layer or mucus layer of the tear film. Proper diagnosis guides the treatment which may include artificial tears, Restasis, punctum plugs, flax seed oil, or even surgery depending on the cause and severity of the condition. ...Read more

My left eye swollen. Inside is red. And I can't control tearing when I took Vigamox. I started to take this medicine 2 days before. Could u suggest sth?

My left eye swollen. Inside is red. And I can't control tearing when I took Vigamox. I started to take this medicine 2 days before. Could u suggest sth?

Probably viral.: External bacterial eye infections typically clear rapidly with a strong 4th generation antibiotic like Vigamox. This suggests it may be viral. If you have severe bright light sensitivity, tearing & foreign sensation, you need a slit lamp biomicroscope exam in an eye doctor's office. This could be a foreign body particle embedded in your cornea, a herpetc infection or EKC from adenovirus 8 or 19. ...Read more

Is there any drug to reduce vitreo-retinal traction and adhesion? Can they be used during posterior vitreous detachment to prevent retinal tears?

No: In the absence of retinal inflammation or uveitis, there are no oral or topical drugs which decrease vitreo-retinal traction. If their is inflammation in the eye, the cause of this needs to be discovered and treated appropriately. There is no drug that you can take while a posterior vitreal detachment is occurring. You should be checked for the presence of significant retinal breaks. ...Read more

Is there something natural available to relieve and preferably cure lichen sclerosis? I'm not interested in allopathic drugs. I'm hoping for something natural to ease the discomfort when my skin tears or gets itchy sours and my dream come true would be so

Is there something natural available to relieve and preferably cure lichen sclerosis? I'm not interested in allopathic drugs. I'm hoping for something natural to ease the discomfort when my skin tears or gets itchy sours and my dream come true would be so

Unfortunately,: Unfortunately, I am not aware of any natural remedies for lichen sclerosis. Also lichen sclerosis is a diagnosis that needs to be made by a health care professional by doing a biopsy of the area. It is important to make sure that there aren't other potential causes such as vaginal cancer although it is quite uncommon. Lichen sclerosis can be treated with a topical corticosteroid but one that has a stronger potency that the corticosteroids found over the counter at the pharmacy. After treatment for 4-6 weeks you will only need to apply it to the area 1-2 times weekly to maintain the improvement. Vaginal estrogen can help the symptoms too. It is possible that natural remedies such phytoestrogen supplements used for menopause may be helpful but I don't think that has been studied. Clobestasol is the name of the corticosteroid that can be used to treat lichen sclerosis. If you find something natural that works please do post on the bulletin board. ...Read more

I have medial meniscus tear in posterior horn do I need bed rest doc gave medicine for 15 days. I am a flight attndt should I fly? Or take rest

If this is a new: Tear, then resting until relatively pain free and swelling if any has gone down is advisable, but not bed rest. Bed rest is rarely recommended b/c of the risk of blood clots. Old tears don't need to be rested. However you need to be able to do your job safely in a more confounded space than most people. Eventually though you should get the tear fixed to avoid arthritis later in life. ...Read more

Are there good natural cures for dry eyes? I don’t want to use drugs and medicated eye drops if I can help it. I’ve read that flaxseed oil can help make tears more oily so they don’t evaporate so fast. Is this true? Are there any other natural solutions?

Are there good natural cures for dry eyes? I don’t want to use drugs and medicated eye drops if I can help it. I’ve read that flaxseed oil can help make tears more oily so they don’t evaporate so fast. Is this true? Are there any other natural solutions?

Although: Although taking flax seed oil by mouth can improve symptoms of dry eye, it will not have an immediate effect (and can take up to two months to be noted). In the meantime I agree that it is prudent to avoid medicated eye drops. Instead, use of a "preservative-free" artificial tear is both safe and provides immediate relief. These generally are sold over the counter and come in small plastic vials for single use. ...Read more
