My girlfriend is having intermittent moderate pain around the cervix two weeks after cervical erosion cauterisation. What may cause this?

My wife had a miscarriage. As a result of further cauterisation her uterus got 3 times bigger. What is the best way for recovery back to normal?

Need more info: When women have miscarriages, they often have d&cs afterward. Cauterization implies heat... Like an endometrial ablation (something your wife is too young for). An enlarged uterus without fibroids is typically adenomyosis (similar to endometriosis). The best treatment for adenomyosis is hormone management with birth control pills, or shots. Definitely speak to a doctor if you or she is worried. ...Read more

I just had a cervial discectomy and fusion at C5 C6 recovery has been minimal how long before I can schedule a breast lift?

I just had a cervial discectomy and fusion at C5 C6 recovery has been minimal how long before I can schedule a breast lift?

Ask neck surgeon: Your neck surgeon has the definitive answer based on your actual surgery, as well as how your healing has progressed. An elective cosmetic surgery should not be undertaken when there is any risk to your neck; your neck will likely need to be hyperextended for anesthesia, and unless fully and durably healed (x-ray?), this could be a major risk. Talk frankly with your neck surgeon about your plan! ...Read more
