I'm having double incision FTM top surgery done and was wondering if regional anesthesia is a viable option for that?
I have a recurrent colorectal cancer. Just finished with chemorad.
Waiting to go for surgery however doctor mentioned stenting uterus during surgery.
Stenting ureter!: I think you mean stenting ureter, not uterus! ureter will be stented in cancer operation to avoid any injuries to the ureters. during cancer operation they do a lymph node dissection and they stay wide away from the colon for a good clean margin and to surround the cancer lymphatic drainage.and if there is a local spread to surrounding tissue, ureter will be vulnerable for injuries. ...Read more

Is breast implant removal needed during a breast lift? I had breast augmentation done 20 years ago, and i'm not sure if i need to have them removed. Now my breasts are sagging and i think i need a lift. If I have a breast lift, is breast implant removal a
Not needed: + advise: It is not absolutely necessary but i would advise that you truly consider removal, removal with replacement (larger or smaller or transition from saline to silicone or vice versa) or removal and fat transfer. There are many options for this and they should be discussed with a board certified plastic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers

Had colostomy surgery for colon/bladder fistula. Have a super pubic catheter from previous. Since surgery the cath hasn't drained - bladder flush?
Call your surgeon: While it seems likely that flushing may resolve a suprapubic catheter that is not draining, it is critical that you contact your surgeon for advise. This it sounds like the surgery was fairly recent and because your repair may be adversely affected if the flush is done incorrectly (and if the flushing does not work, your surgeon will need to see you anyways), best to put him/her on alert. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 26 male and had an inguinal hernia surgery (open repair) with mesh in 2010. Is there any possibility for scar tissue not to be shown in MRI scan?
Would a suprapubic cathether be better than ileal conduit surgery for my of aged dad, with bladder ca?
Yes: Ureteral stents frequently used in urology to relieve obstruction most often related to kidney stones and their treatment and less often for cancerous-related or other causes of ureteral blockage. Usually temporary, but occasionally long-term requiring periodic exchange. Often associated with "variable" degree of discomfort and urinary symptoms. No harm at all in having sex with stent in place. ...Read more
Is it possible to have a surgery to keep the urethra open permanently for someone who has overflow incontinence instead of using a catheter 24/7?

If cancer comes back in the same breast after having a breast-sparing surgery, will I need a mastectomy then? Will I be able to have breast reconstruction even though I have had radiation?
Yes: Yes to both. Since you can't have radiation twice in the same breast, most women need a mastectomy if the cancer returns after breast-sparing surgery. You have several reconstruction options after previous radiation, depending on how your breast tissue responded to radiation. Talk to a plastic surgeon about options. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

What is perineal rectosigmoidectomy? What is a low anterior resection with rectoplexy? Can either be done microscopicaly? Should an 86 year old woman have this done? We don't want her to go through a major surgery and be in pain for long. Her rectal prol
Both : Both these procedures are done for rectal prolapse. The perineal rectosigmoidectomy is done from below by making an incision and removing the rectum and the last part of the colon to prevent the rectum from prolapsing (also known as the altemeier procedure) the second procedure you mention is the low anterior resection with rectopexy is done through the abdomen and the surgeon removes a part of the colon and pulls the rectum up and sutures it to the inlet of the sacrum to prevent it from prolapsing back out. For an 86 year old unless she is in great medical condition the first procedure perineal rectosigmoidectomy would be a safer procedure as it is less invasive and offers a good outcome. ...Read more
Since my tlh on 2/5 I have had urinary retention and have a Foley catheter in place. What is the typical cause for urinary retention after a tlh?
A few things: Anesthetic agents at first complicate urinating by effect on muscles involved. Pain meds can cause/contribute to it. Local irritation/inflammation can contribute. The pain post-procedure can keep you from wanting to push to go. Residual irritation from foley (if out) can. Positioning (esp if in bed/on sofa a lot) doesn't help. So many things play into it, and all (should) resolve over a few days. ...Read more
