While doing the hydrocele surgery on my left testicle

Generally, general: Anesthesia is provided for this out-patient procedure which is usually not complicated. Surgery is less risky than aspiration for infection and is more likely to last. Some use a laparoscopy method but in any case, it is likely to go well. Talk w/ your surgeon for a Do/Don't list and other info you'd like. Also, here's a link: http://www.surgeryencyclopedia.com/Fi-La/Hydrocelectomy.html Best! ...Read more

Most Importantly!: Lasik is a wonderful, "life altering" surgical procedure that changes the focus of your eyes. (every word in this sentence is important!) so reseting your focus does not treat any disease.. It just resets your focus, which may change, but likely will not if your vision is stable. Surgery (like everything in life) has risks. If you can accept the small risks for the vision benefits, then go for it! ...Read more

Undereye bags: Large expressive eyes like Susan Sarandon? Some of it is genetics. Rubbing your eyes can make the venous discoloration more prominent and increase melanin production. if your sleep is adequate, try cool compresses like wet teabags cooled in the freezer for a few minutes to decrease swelling in the area. The skin is thin and any excess fluid looks puffy. Decrease your salt. Treat allergies. ...Read more
