Peroneal nerve: Isolated foot drop after surgery is likely due to pressure on the lateral aspect of the leg just below the knee during surgery. As seen in the picture, the peroneal nerve is at risk of pressure injury where it crosses the fibula. This kind of "palsy" due to pressure may recover spontaneously over weeks to months. If not, orthotics or surgery to graft a nerve along the injured area may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you tell me about lap radical subtotal gastrectomy w/ en-bloc distal pancreatectomy & transverse colectomy?

To require pancreas body and tail removed means the lesion performated into the lesser sac to involve body of pancreasa and invade gastrocolic ligament to hit the transverse colon. If all tumor out, regardless of approach, chemo may still be needed. ...Read more
Complicated question: Radical prostatectomy (RP) can be very effective done properly, especially for cancers confined to the prostate gland (stage T2). It has been shown to reduce risk of metastasis and death in trials compared to no surgery. This is a topic of much debate centered on the fact that while effective if done properly, it may not be necessary for many men. The benefits appear to accrue to younger men ...Read more

Though the relative numbers of each differ from center to center and country to country, these are the surgical approaches available in australia. ...Read more

Chemo for --- ibc marginally successful. Then mastectomy, 7 lymph nodes positive. Now the surgeon wants rad, onc wants different chemo. Help!
Yes for rad: Definitely you should get an adjuvant radiation therapy following mastectomy. As per- chemo- if you get chemo first before surgery and unfortunately the response is only marginal- that indicates that your cancer is likely is resistant to chemo.So, adding more chemo post mastetcomy doubtfully will give you any benefit. Is this er+ or er-? If this is er+- then you should get aromatase inhibitor. ...Read more
