I had a major foot surgery 6 months ago I have severe nerve pain due to complication?

Hi.

Since i had a major foot surgery 6 months ago i have severe nerve pain due to a complication.
My symptoms were:

– Tingling/Electrical Pain in my left foot, on the left side of the foot and up my heel.
– Desensitization/Numbing of said area, leading to more discomfort.
– Lump where the sural nerve is in calf.

As of 2 weeks ago my sural nerve was repaired, in which the sheathing of the nerve was repaired in surgery as that was the cause of the irritation. My surgeon has gone overseas and i cant consult him about my inquires.

Im still experiencing nerve pain, occasionally its actually worse. Could this be the nerve rewiring? I have not gotten any feeling back either, the lump is still there but i take that as general swelling from the stitches i have down my leg.

Any help would be great, thanks.

I have found a large hard lump on the right side of my groin?

I have found a large hard lump on the right side of my groin. I noticed it a few weeks ago. I thought it might be a cyst at first and as I’m a veterinary nurse I used a needle and syringe to see if I could drain it but there is no fluid or puss coming back. It’s getting more painful and irritating. Not sure if it’s something I should be concerned about. Was hoping it might have gone down by now if it was just a flare up of a lymph node. I’m female and 27 – not pregnant

Hello my name is (…) and about two weeks ago I had a spider crawl in my ear. It finally got out but I was left with an ear infection. They gave me neomyosin polymyxin b with hydrocortisone eardrops. It said to take three drops in the left ear three times a day for 10 days. Me being stupid and busy with three jobs I was only able to take one to two drops about 1 to 2 times a day for 10 days. Now I’m done with the 10 days in my ear infection is back. What it be OK if I restart taking the antibiotics? The right way? My ear is hurting so bad



I acquired Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) while in hospital?

A year ago I acquired MRSA in my bloodstream whilst in hospital requiring ticoplanin via a PIC line for 4 weeks. After treatment I tested negative for MRSA.

Now I am looking to book a sleeve gastrectomy at a private hospital and want to know if I need to declare this to the surgeon or if I am cured and therefore it does not apply anymore.

• I would like to know if I am duty bound to tell him or not?
• I am worried it could make my surgery more expensive or even be refused as an MRSA risk. Is that possible?
• I have not been told if I carry any greater risk now than before my infection of re-infection, is the MRSA harbored at all?
• I know I am negative in my nose and groin but is my blood affected long term?.



My 4 week old son fell today from the bed, ER says no CT scan possible, I need your recommendation?

My 4 week old son fell today from the bed while being fed. The height of my bed is roughly 60-70cm… Got a bump on his head exactly on the rear top right side… We took him to the ER where they kept him for observation for 4 hours by only doing physical examination for his body, head and checking his reflex… they ask me to keep an eye if he is vomiting or feeling sleepy etc… As an infant, they are always sleepy, however no vomiting at all… he only cry at the time of eating, but i feel is crying voice is more of pain rather than hunger… The attending told us he wouldn’t do a CT scan if it was his kid… I need your recommendation please… Thanks

Been experiencing a warm/pain sensation in my left pectoral that tends to radiate occasionally across my shoulder?

Hi, im a 21 year old male. Smoker since i was 19.

Been experiencing a warm/pain sensation in my left pectoral that tends to radiate occasionally across my shoulder, down my arm and hand. My hand can get cold sometimes too.
Im thinking it may be a nerve problem as i have minor pain in my neck left side too.

My doctor seems to think its a pulled muscle but i have been experiencing these feelings for over 2/3 months now.

Also, I tend to feel vague alot of the time and used to be a frequent marijuana user until 2 months ago when I quit.

All of this is really decreasing my quality of life and i just want to feel ‘normal’ again.
Is there any advice anyone could give me? Thanks

I have a 9 year old daughter who suffered some sort of seizure yesterday?

Hi I have a 9 year old daughter who suffered some sort of seizure yesterday. We were sitting down when I realised that she was hitting her chest and was really pale. When I asked her what was wrong she wouldnt respond. She stopped hitting her chest but for the next ten minutes she seemed that she was detached from reality. She
was looking through me, would not respond to any questions, as I put oxygen mask to her mouth she started talking and answering my questions. On the way to hospital she felt so tired and wanted to fall asleep and complained about a head ache. Doctors checked her sugar levels, urine and blood and everything was normal. She did vomit once while at hospital. We took her home and she had head ache for the rest of the night. Next morning everything went back to normal. Doctors could not tell us what was wrong. Any help from you would be more than welcome.
