How long is the recovery for ankle arthroscopic surgery? And when can I resume my normal activities after surgery?
Recovery: Your recovery depends on the extent of the surgery; the efficiency of your immune system; the delivery of essential nutrients to the surgical site for repair; the quality of your sleep; how well hydrated you are; the extent of your post-op physical therapy and activity level. In other words, there are many factors that must be taken into consideration. Expect at least 3 to 4 months on average. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does transgender (female to male) and has surgery to remove the breasts and lymph nodes reduce the risk of breast cancer?
Probably: In general, transgender surgery does not remove your lymph nodes... Just the breasts. A cosmetic, non-cancer, operation for the breasts can occasionally leave some breast tissue. This may leave you with some risk of breast cancer, but this is probably much less than 5%. Everything still depends on your underlying risk of breast cancer, which may depend on your family history and other factors.. ...Read more

Should i get surgery for tmj? The pain has gotten worse lately, but it’s still not usually too terrible. I’ve heard that sometimes surgery can cause worse problems than the tmj.
It depends: There are many factors to consider. Surgery for TMJ is extremely aggressive and invasive.
