Have cystorectocele. Urogyn recommends surgery; recovery was @12 weeks. Planning trip to Israel 7/2/15.If repair done 4/6/15,is it too early to travel?

No: Having done thousands of vaginal repairs and reviewing the literature on postop restrictions, there is little basis for limiting activities for any significant time. I perform all of these surgeries on an outpatient basis with return to work or normal activities whenever a patient feels up to it and that's usually within a week or so. Be sure to see an experienced surgeon for any vaginal repairs. ...Read more

What to do if i'm a tourist and want to know how can I take a healthy food during travel to different countries of the world?

Travel Food Choices: Even with the best care, it is difficult to prevent traveler's diarrhea completely. Your best selections are always to eat hot food prepared on the spot, not food sitting warm for long periods. Cook or boil your vegetables and eat only smaller fruits that you cut and clean yourself. And remember to either boil your water, drink carbonated water or use a UV light pen to assure your water is clean. ...Read more

Rape counselors: There are counselors, commonly not psychiatrists, that can assist with this counseling both the rapists and the victims.

I am 3-5 weeks into pregnancy. I am a tourist and don't have insurance or enough money to see a doctor. I can get medication. What do you recommend?

Prenatal vitamins: If you are doing well, then you can probably wait till you return home to see a Dr. You should probably start prenatal vitamins however. That is available without a prescription at any drugstore/pharmacy. If there is a problem with your pregnancy and need to see a doctor without insurance, there are "urgent care" clinics that are less expensive than ERs that may be able to see you. ...Read more

If this is something you worry about a lot, mention it to one of your parents, a close adult friend, or a school counselor. A lot of people have these kinds of worries and you can get help to not worry so much. ...Read more
