Without an exam?: I am sure you can understand, but no physician will be willing to give you any valid medical advice in this specific situation without an examination. Remember that post operative time is very fraught with the risk of complications and all treatment problems or even treatment failures must be discussed or communicated with the surgeon. Your surgeon sent you home with instructions on how to do this ...Read more

Goal-symmetric limbs: The goal of limb lengthening is to create more symmetry or functional use of the affected limb when compared to the opposite side.

Implant = Prosthesis: The inflatable penile prosthesis (ipp) is an excellent solution for men with severe e.D. That does not respond to other measures.

It varies: It depends on the cause of the kyphosis. For example, kyphosis from an osteoporosis fracture is treated with a minimally invasive kyphoplasty, which has almost no recovery time. A kyphosis from a structural, non fracture deformity is similar to a scoliosis type surgery and has an approximate 12 week recovery until return to full activity.

Full width radial sagittal band tear in my middle finger. What's the normal recovery time from surgical repair? Options besides surgery? Thanks!
Options:: Typically, if you have a "full-thickness" or "full-width" tear of pretty much anything, I recommend having a surgeon take a look. Soft tissues can often heal if there is still a portion remaining untorn. But when the whole thing is in 2 pieces, it has to be put back together. Because it's a finger, (unless ur a musician, etc) id think u should b able to be mostly active in a few days at most. ...Read more
