I was diagnosed with endometriosis via laparoscopy?

I was diagnosed with endometriosis via laparoscopy March 2016. Had an endometrioma on left ovary as well as “endometriosis everywhere”. Opted for Mirena IUD to control, but had it removed one year later due to side effects being greater than the pain.
My question is, at what point do I request another surgery? The pain is quickly becoming severe (wakes me up in the middle of the night, taking too much ibuprofen to control the pain….up to 4000mg a day) but after two ultrasounds, the visual evidence does not support another surgery. The pain only occurs during my cycle, but it is circling back to point that I have to schedule around it.
I have tried the pill in the past, but I do not do well on it, to say the least. And my “doctor” (NP) tells me that if I do not take hormonal assistance, there is nothing else to be done.

I am having trouble breathing and have two holes in my chest?

Having trouble breathing and have two holes in my chest

I have 2 holes in the left side of my chest and 4 gashes on my upper left torso, also have a few gashes on my left shoulder, and my ribs are broken on the left side as well. Every time I take a breath, a weird blowing sound, along with frothy blood comes out of the holes in my chest, making it hard for me to breathe. The holes are in my upper left chest area and near my left nipple. They both blow bloody bubbles out in spurts each time I breathe. The holes are about the size of a half dollar coin and make blowing sounds each time I breathe. I called for an ambulance and the EMTs cut my shirt off completely and are saying I need to go to the hospital. They said I need to have oxygen and might have a “punctured left lung” and a “sucking chest wound.” What do these terms mean and why was my shirt cut off? What will the EMT’s and doctors do to treat my condition, and after I leave the hospital, what can I do for self care at home? Male



Bone Tuberculosis (TB) Diagnosis cannot be confirmed, do we opt for surgery or TB medication?

BONE TB DIAGNOSIS CANNOT BE CONFIRMED

My name is (…) from Australia. My nephew – (…), (male) aged 16 year, living in Bangladesh, has been suffering an acute pain in his spine. Doctor in Bangladesh wasn’t able to unambiguously diagnose his disease, however based on some of the medical investigation such as MRI scan and assessing the symptoms they strongly suspect that (my nephew) has been suffering from Bone TB. As the diagnosis was not unequivocal so the prescribed course of the treatment given by the doctors in Bangladesh doesn’t build a solid confidence in us. In that circumstance my sister brought him to Hyderabad, India as India is deemed to be better than Bangladesh in regards to medical science. However, the outcome is almost absolutely identical. In this circumstance we are seriously confused and cannot take our decision, whether we should go for surgery or TB medication. We are even thinking about taking the patient to Bangkok as Bangkok is even better than India.
Please give me a guideline.
Kindest regards,
(…)

I broke my collarbone back in 2009, my chest seems to have become a bit deformed since the incident?

Hi there, I broke my collarbone back in 2009 when a girl tackled me onto my side onto ice. I passed out so I’m not entirely sure how I fell, but I know I fell on my shoulder hard and must have hit my head as well. My collarbone broke in 3 spots on my right side. I was 13 at the time so doctors freaked me out a lot, but they still kind of do. Enough for me not to want to visit the doctors regarding this issue a least.

Anyways, my chest seems to have become a bit deformed since the incident. From my collarbone down to between my breast, the centre of my chest protrudes enough that it makes my breasts push downwards and outwards a bit. It’s not painful at all unless I lay on my stomach and have pressure on my chest for too long, but it’s definitely not something I’d like to deal with the rest of my life. I was wondering if anything could maybe be done without surgery, like a posture sling or compression on the chest of some sort… I tried to take a photo but without completely exposing myself, it’s very hard to show what I mean. It’s like a pigeon chest, but what I’ve noticed about pigeon chests is that it seems to be lower and not start by the collarbone, and that it then sinks in as well as protrude, which mine does not.



I had my gallbladder removed in April of 2015, I am still having severe pain?

I am a 46 year old female. I had my gallbladder removed in April of 2015. The doctor said it was not working. I am still having severe pain, that I have to go to the ER. What is going on? Is there a medical term used for this type of condition? I had the scope done in February, and nothing showed up but two polyps and both were benign. I am really getting scared because nothing has been found. The last visit to the ER, they did blood work. Would the blood work have shown if I have cancer or not, or is there a certain test they have to do to check for cancer? Also my blood pressure was up and my heart rate was 138. Please help!



I had a lumbar laminectomy / discectomy on the L5-S1 around 8-9 months ago for some pretty painful sciatica?

I had a lumbar laminectomy / discectomy on the L5-S1 around 8-9 months ago for some pretty painful sciatica shooting down my left leg from my gluteal region. I was doing pretty well until last week, and noticed that I had some sensitivity behind my outer left knee. The sensitivity is not debilitating, but really notable. Could I have possibly re-herniated? or can this be corrected? I have not had any pain yet from my gluteal region nor my lower back.

I have just started my gabapentin treatment again, I also had an occurrence today when I coughed and my upper left gluteal region issued me some sharp pain. Am I experiencing a recurrence of a herniated disc again?



My wife has had an Ilia conduit operation 6 years ago & has a Stoma bag, crystals forming with burning sensation?

My wife has had an Ilia conduit operation 6 years ago & has a Stoma bag. She has a constant urine infection & has had to take antibiotics regularly as she has developed Kidney problems. Her urine is burning her flesh area around the Stoma and is causing crystals to form. She has been told to dab the area with white vinegar. A very painful experience every time, That area hurts all the time but however she has done this and after two weeks, they went. Very upset to see the crystals have returned after just two days. What else can she do to relieve the situation?
Thank you Doctor.
