How can you treat pain from a surgery you had 12 years ago that resulted in two screws in both wrists, the kneecap and an ankle growth plate?
See you doctor: First of all, if you are 40 and had surgery 12 years ago the growth plate in your ankle was long closed. My recommendation would be to see an orthopedic doctor and see why and where the pain is coming from. Obviously after 12 years the original surgeries are healed. The screws can be causing issues, you may have a meniscus tear, and or traumatic arthritis. That's why you need to get evaluated ASAP ...Read more

Are there any long term effects on wrist or hand of surgically fixed (plates and screws) proximal fractures in both ulna and radius of same forearm?
Possibly: The long term effects are related more to the fracture itself, rather than the paltes and scews. In normal wrist motion the radius bone rotates around the ulna bone, so a fracture tio either bone can cause a deformity which can limit this rotation. ...Read more

Removing bone screw: After the anesthetic and the exposure is like a screw in any solid substance. Except can be overlying tissue or bone that the surgeon has to remove. A screw hole in healthy good bone is expected to fill in over several months. Depending upon the location of the screw the surgeon may recommend a splint or temporary alteration of activity but that is very individualized. Ask you surgeon more ...Read more

I had a broken elbow repaired May 29th which involved a plate and 10 screws. My hand and fingers are still swollen even though I am exercising?
Swelling post-op: Some swelling post operatively is normal, even after 1 month. Increased exercise may increase swelling if the exercises are too strenuous and taxing on the elbow. Be sure to be going to a Physical therapist post op who is trained in this sort of procedure and post-op care and rehabilitative services. Each person is different, so it is imperative for continuity of care you follow-up with surgeon. ...Read more
I have plates and screws in my hand (metacarpals). I recently noticed a bump where my hardware. Is it a problem? There were some complications with the accident such as blood clots if that helps at all. I have tried the r.I.C.E method to and also an anti
The timing makes all the difference. As a fracture is healing, it lays down abundant new bone, called callus. Over time, the bone will remodel and the bump will go down. The callus usually forms within a couple of months, but can take over a year to remodel.
If the bump came on suddenly and was associated with severe pain, then you may have a hardware failure. If the bone doesn't heal, the metal will fatigue, sort of like bending a paperclip until it breaks. Once the bone heals, it absorbs the forces around the metal and repairs itself.
I would talk to your surgeon and have the area evaluated and x-rayed. ...Read more
Depends: It is not unusual to notice a lump over your surgical site after a repair of a hand fracture. This is usually part of the normal inflammatory response. If it has been a while and you can still feel your hardware, you need to decide how much it bothers you. Occasionally, if there is palpable hardware, some surgeons will go back to remove it if it is causing problems. ...Read more
I broke my 4th metacarpal in my right hand right on top of where a pin was already screwed in. (Its not completely broken) Do I need a surgery?
Interference.: Not all broken bones have to have surgery for satisfactory healing. Having said that, if it is determined that the pin inserted during a previous procedure has the potential to interfere or even prevent proper healing of the current fracture, then surgery is entirely possible. ...Read more

Put hand sanitizer on outside of cheese while still sealed w/ plastic. Went to eat some & it tasted like hand sanitizer.19 w preg. Could it hurt baby?
Minimal ingestion: I think you will be fine; obviously there are no studies on this to guarantee the lack of harm, but it's highly unlikely with such a small amount. The only known harm is likely the small amount of alcohol in the sanitizer, but your pregnancy is so far enough along that this should not matter. Relax. It's going to be fine. ...Read more
Depends: Generally, the screws or pins or plates are meant to be left in. No reason to remove unless causing problems. They can break, move, elicit an unexpected reaction from the body [they are a foreign object and the body may recognize them as such. If no problems, they are best left in. ...Read more
Why am I so paranoid about germs? Wherever I go I take massive bottles of hand sanitizer, hand wipes and plastic bags to put the wipes in.
OCD: Sounds like you have a touch of obsessive-compulsive disorder. This is a medical/psychiatric condition where your body perceives an increased risk of harm (in your case from germs), so your body is trying to protect itself. This abnormal thought process can often be managed with medication, therapy or a combination of both. Treatment can be very effective! ...Read more

To apply ice after a knee, back, &hand injury, is it safe to put ice in a towel and apply it to the injury or put ice in a plastic bag&then in a towel?
Personal choice: Ice is useful after an acute musculoskeletal injury. It you put it directly in a towel, it will melt and we the towel and perhaps your clothes or furniture. Putting the ice first in a plastic bag prevents the dripping and makes no difference to the effectiveness. ...Read more
Been masturbating since I was 10 in prone masturbation (humping the mattress in my trousers and pants to ejaculate) never by hand I thought it was normal but now I am 32 when I do it by hand it doesn't work and when have intercourse also cant ejaculate.
Your body is used to: The technique which produces more friction than manual masturbation or intercourse. You will need to retrain yourself. Masturbate with lubricant. If you do not achieve orgasm, STOP. Do NOT revert to your old method. Later, masturbate again. If no orgasm, STOP. After a few rounds of this, your body WILL respond. Keep practicing and you will retrain your sexual stimulation threshold. Have fun! ...Read more
Intercourse makes my hands and body shake (I already have slight hand tremors 24/7). Is there anyway to stop this?
Tremors and intercourse: Some people respond to intercourse related orgasms in different ways. Your body's response may change over the years. I think that this may be a natural occurrence and may not be related to what sounds like benign tremors. Nevertheless, if this is bothersome to you and your partner, I recommend having a candid conversation with your healthcare provider. ...Read more

What are signs of intercourse? 1boy touched my vagina by putting his hand, fingers in my panty, he didn't take off my panty. Was it intercourse? M tnsd?
No penis = no inter.: A penis is required in order for the activity to be called intercourse (hands and fingers don't count). If the activity was one that both the boy and girl decided to try, and then stopped, but the girl can't tell if a penis was involved, and she hasn't asked the boy, and etc., etc.... It doesn't matter in the big picture. However, if she was forced upon (is illegal, is a crime), she may seek help. ...Read more
I broke my right hand and had surgery two weeks ago. They put a screw and 2 pins in my hand. Now im experiancing cramping. Is it normal? What can I do
I n my friend wer makin fun around....I was playing with his penis....He ejaculated in the plastic....Later I touched my hand to the vaginal opening..
Probably okay, but..: The described scenes carry almost no risk to conceive, but theoretically still give no 100 % guaranty. So, just watch and do pregnancy test if missing the expected period for 2-3 weeks, and exercise better precaution against pregnancy in the future. Note, the surest way to avoid pregnancy is abstinence. Yet, sex has been a part of life, either for pleasure or for reproduction, so be responsible... ...Read more
Deliveryman brought plastic for mattress he's cut on his hand n blood was on it. Touched blood on it. I got cut n bad allergy on hand redness. Hiv risk?
Stop worrying: The deliveryman bled all over your mattress plastic, and you touched the dried blood where you have a cut and a rash on your hand? This is still an unrealistic fear. Dried blood is a solid and isn't going to percolate into tissues; even your rash and your cut are sealed by your fibrin. With concerns like these, you'd do well to get with your physician and talk about your fears generally. ...Read more
During intercourse the hips are flexed and rotated outward. If your flexibility is decreased because of arthritis or tight ligaments you may feel it. You can test this. Wile sitting on the floor cross your right foot over your left knee and push your right knee down to the floor. If that mimics what you are feeling that is likely the problem. Have your doc check it out.
Good health. ...Read more

There was little semen on my bf's hand when he touched my vagina, no intercourse, today is the 7th day, I took 2 preg test -ve, possible pregnancy?
Very very unlikely: The possibility of a pregnancy without actual insertion of viable semen into your vagina is very remote, so minimal that some would say totally negligible. If you would like to avoid getting pregnant, ask a knowledgeable and caring Gyn for either an intrauterine device or a subdermal contraceptive implants which are the most effective long acting reversible contraceptives...plus use condoms. ...Read more
