I may have, not certain,swallowed a very small amount of plastic, it was not heated, from a TV Dinner?

Not to worry: While I don't recommend swallowing plastic, our bodies can not digest plastic, so it should harmlessly pass out of your body in your stools. It is possible a large amount could create problems by producing an obstruction, but I can't imagine a very small amount causing any trouble... ...Read more

Hello , 
I need your help , i have eaten a part of a plastic fork accidentaly while i was eating .  it's been 5 days without any symptoms .

No need to worry: At this time (>48 hrs) the piece of plastic you accidentally swallowed has most likely passed out of your body in the stool without causing any harm. As long as you don't have pain when you swallow, these small objects don't cause any problems. I once had a patient that swallowed a razor blade and it passed without causing any severe bleeding or infection! (But don't try that!) ...Read more

Odd question: Why? There are folks who try to take the drug out of the patch, to inject it, sell it. I find your question hinting at just that. I would highly recommend you not get involved with any of that if that is what you are contemplating. ...Read more

What part of a bladder TAC is plastic? My Dr says it's punctured into my vagina. Best option/surgeon to repair?

What part of a bladder TAC is plastic? My Dr says it's punctured into my vagina. Best option/surgeon to repair?

Prolapse surgery?: I think you are referring to a previous surgery on your bladder that may have eroded into the vagina. I am not certain if this is what you are asking. If so it depends on what type of material was used and what previous surgery was done. Likely you are referring to some type of vaginal mesh. Some are easy to repair and some are hard. See a Urogynecologist. ...Read more

Why is my bottom retainer causing my gums under my tongue to hurt? Feels like the plastic part is pressing to hard under my tongue.

It may very well be: Is this a new retainer? It may need a tiny adjustment. When the impression was taken, the soft tissues may have been compressed a bit, resulting in a too tight fit. Call your orthodontist for a follow up. ...Read more

However, I need more info to give a good answer ...Read more

drowsy and have mild headache.  It is the side front part. Please write what should I?

Get seen now: Your symptoms are suggestive of possible brain trauma. With your symptoms my best recommendation is going in to an ER now & not waiting until the morning. You need a head CT & neurological examination. If you'd like to hook up by webcam then, go to www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi and follow instructions on how to contact me by webcam and let's talk.
