2 kids born 13&15 yrs old. 1 abortion year 06 2 miscarriages yr 06 & 13, I had ultrasound of cervix twice told everything look well. Infertile?
No...: Infertility is defined by someone who is unable to conceive. You have been pregnant so infertility does not sound like it is a problem that you have. Miscarriages are emotionally difficult; however, know that they are very common and most women that have a miscarriage are ultimately able to have a successful pregnancy. ...Read more

Had lasik in 2001. Developed lattice degeneration amd a retinal hole 2 years later. Is there a link?
Yes, but indirectly: Lattice degeneration, a thinning of the peripheral retina, is more common in near sighted individuals. It can be associated with spontaneous retinal tears, holes, and detachments. Presumably you had lasik for myopia, or near sightedness. So, you are at a higher risk of lattice and retinal holes, and this is unlikely related to the lasik procedure itself. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes, distance OD: You have two different type of IOLs in your eyes. The right is only for distance so near vision will be poor without glasses.

2 pituitary surgeries to remove my tumor. I have had 2 blood patches, 2 fat graph packs, part. Shunt. Radiation packing. I'm still leaking. What now?
Probably not.: Gcsf is given to raise the neutrophil count. Long term use usually is for severe chronic neutropenia with high risk of infection. While gcsf use has been reported in patients who have subsequently developed leukemia, so far such reports are only in people whose underlying disease already confers such a risk. There is no convincing evidence that gcsf increases that risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm 19 girl, myopic -2.5 both eyes,spec only within 2 years,engaged in reading all time, from last 6 months eye floaters annoying,is it danger?? Help
Not to worry: Your myopia is not a high degree. Reading can be good for the mind and is not harmful to your eyes - keep it up. Floaters are common, at worst annoying but only indicative of harm if they suddenly appear with dozens of floaters and light flashes You are not doing anything dangerous. If you still are worried, you could have an examination by an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist). ...Read more
Lattice reviewed 2 days ago- no vitreoretinal etiology found.Last night i noticed flashes in peripheral vision during(not after) hard cough. Normal?
Depends: Lattice can be a site of weakness with retinal jiggling causing the light flashes. If it only happens when you cough, and not in between and you see no new floaters and the vision remains good, then you can wait it out. If the flashing is continuous or the other factors appear, then have your ophthalmologist (you are not of course seeing an optometrist for this-right?), check it out again. ...Read more

I'm 35, was born with Congenital torticollis, had 2 surgeries at age under 5 - sholders are still dissymmetrical, scar tissue tightens neck. Surgery?
Would you operate at once if lung nodule went from 14, 2x10, 9mm-14, 2x 11, 6mm in a 2 month period, round , non smoker 55yo. Thoractomy 2 days later.
Choices: Follow for another few month since this may not be a change. Full history, and review of all xrays and ct scans is appropriate. If followed for some time already, and no other histoplasmosis or TB history, one might remove it. The benign ones will stay about the same, and calcify over time. Fear of delay diagnosing cancer is the issue since early removal has best survival. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Right eye, lasik 12 yrs ago, cataract surgery 2 yrs ago. Suddenly getting big starbursts outside at night. Anti-glare glasses don't help - what would?
Check up: Have your eye md check your refraction and examine the eyes. You have had cataract surgery in the past and your eyes may be developing posterior opacification of the capsule that surrounds your intraocular lens implant. Your eye md can tell you if a laser capsulotomy would help clarify you vision, or if is just a glasses prescription change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
