Deviated nasal septum with adhesion inferior turbinate at right side.Eustachiantube dyesfunction, is turbinate reduction only useful or with septoplas?
Turbinate Reduction: Hello. The answer to your question depends on your intranasal anatomy. If your septum is surgically corrected, then your turbinates may need attention because the altered septal anatomy may create a new problem with enlarged turbinates. I address both at the time of surgery. Review these questions with your ENT surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more

Nasal cancer or bening? Small amounts of blood tinged mucus in the morning when blowing nose 3 wks. No congestion or runny nose. Minor post nasal drip
The nostril divider: The septum is a dividing structure between the two airway passages of your nose. It consists of bone and cartilage on the inner layer, and mucosa (pink, shiny, moist) as the outer layer. If it is deviated (which it is in most people), it can cause relative narrowing or even blockage of one of the airway passages. This can be corrected with surgery. A board certified ENT or plastic surgeon can help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Having deviated septum surg, turbinate reduc. , sinus balloon dilation. When should I stop taking otc nasal decongestants (benzedrex, etc.) ?
Nasal surgery : You should ask these questions to your surgeon as she/he may have particular preferences. Hopefully, you have not been using topical nasal decongestant sprays, as they should not be used long term and not before nasal surgery. Oral decongestants can be taken up to the day of surgery, if needed. ...Read more
Symptoms: nasal congestion and very bad smell from nose, no sinusitis but enlarged turbinates. Could surgery help eliminate the smell?
Not sure: Turbinate surgery is performed by a variety of techniques to improve breathing and I am not sure the odor would disappear. You need a nasal endoscopy to rule out an infection in the nose. If you already have had such a procedure and everything was normal and sinus disease has been ruled out, think of high reflux of gastric acid, so called LPR (laryngo-pharyngeal reflux). ...Read more
Yes: I've looked at the claims that they cause ill-health in humans and animals and decided they are disinformation for people with dark agendas. The dangers of accidents, especially with today's turbines that are unlikely to sling masses of ice during winter storms, seems small. Wind-generated power seems like a good thing to most people, including those who share my concern with our planet's health. ...Read more
No: There is insufficient evidence that the noise from wind turbines is directly (ie, independent from an effect on annoyance or sleep) causing health problems or disease ... The strongest epidemiological study suggests that there is not an association between noise from wind turbines and measures of psychological distress or mental health problems. (from health impact study). ...Read more

Gallbladder: In some cases, a patient with an infected gallbladder(GB) may be too sick to undergo immediate surgery. A drain can be placed through the skin into the GB by a radiologist using ultrasound or CT guidance. This will allow for drainage of the infection and time for antibiotics to work while the patient recovers in the hospital. The GB can be removed after full recovery, usually 4-6 weeks later. ...Read more

Weak or none: If it is, the effect is weak. The only good recent review (the book is anecdote, militant activism and sub-science) is in j laryngol march '13; these folks simply concluded we cannot rule out an effect on the ear even though it's not been demonstrated to take place. Science is cutthroat and if there were a major real effect, one of the nih research piranhas would have demonstrated it by now. ...Read more
Four years ago i tride these jelqing exercise only did them three times on the last day i felt a pull and had tingling at the bass for months. Also can only achieve about a 70% erection. What could it?
Poss Jelking injury?: Jelking does not make sense. I don't believe any of the positive claims that to helps to increase penile size. Nothing increases penile size once puberty is complete. Am concerned that you nave ruptured some penile blood vessels which could explain why your erections are only at 70%. However advancing years + prostate surgery may also contribute to your ed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely: ...Unless you are sleeping directly under the generator. The strength of a magnetic field drops off with the square of the distance from the source. In other words, the magnetic field strength 2 feet away from the magnet is 1/4 the strength at 1 foot, and the strength at 4 feet is 1/16 the strength at 1foot, etc. The electromagnetic field would be virtually undetectable at 0.1 mile. ...Read more
Why os it that I'm so skinny (1,75m and 52kg) and can't gain weight ? Done tests (tyroide and general blood tests) and all normal, who can help me ?
Hmmm: Difficulty gaining weight or maintaining weight could be due to many things.overactive thyroid could do it. Malabsorption of nutrients could be an issue especially in someone with GI symptoms like gas and bloating. Consider an evaluation for celiac disease. That can be brought up to your doctor. One can also count the day to day caloric intake to see if it is related to under-eating. ...Read more

Can phosphaturia be normal due to diet or always have dangerous cause? Always ate cheese all my life with no turbidity, now suddenly cloudy urine.
Cloudy urine: Cloudy urine can be caused by an infection in the genitourinary tract or may simply be due to insignificant crystals in the urine. Eating cheese does not usually cause cloudy urine. Phosphates in urine may not necessarily be an abnormality. A urinalysis with a microscopic examination as well and a urine culture will give you a lot of information about cloudy urine. Discuss this with your Physician ...Read more
