Time Off Work After A Ruptured Eardrum
4 to 6 weeks: If the only reason you lost hearing is because of the hole in your eardrum, it will take 4 to 6 weeks in most cases for the hole to close on its own. If other damage occurred to your ear besides the eardrum then obviously closing the hole won't make all the difference. Hopefully you have seen an ENT doctor and have had an evaluation. ...Read more

I've had a bladder infection for a week. Normally it clears up after a couple days on its own. What should I do?
See doc, antibiotic: It seems obvious: see a doctor! UTIs often clear up on their own, but not always. You need professional evaluation to confirm the diagnosis and probably an antibiotic. And also maybe check for things that can cause similar symptoms, especially STDs if at risk (new partner, partner with other partners, etc). There's no getting around it; probably safe to wait til Monday, but no longer. ...Read more

I had shoulder surgery done a little over a month ago, this was to scrape bone spurs and clean out the bursa. How long until i fully recover?
6-8 weeks: Structurally, there is only mild weakening of the deltoid insertion where the bone is removed. Rotator cuff, if not repaired should be ready to rehab right away. I encourage my patients to start range of motion exercises as soon as the pain subsides (couple of days). I let them do whatever they are comfortable with after a couple of weeks. It generally takes 6-8 weeks for all the tenderness to end. ...Read more
