Question: edemaI had circumcision done in XXXXXXX and I have what the surgeon says is a skin adhesion which would heal itself but didn't so I had surgery again in august and its still there and now I have what he says is an edema in addition to the adhesion. he said it could take 6 months to heal. I was wondering if that is true and if there is anything I could do or take to speed up the healing process. I am 26 and im not on any medication but an inhaler for asthma. and prilosec and phenergan and singulair.

Hi
Thanks for the query

The circumcision is a minor surgical procedure and the healing occurs with one to two weeks time period. I don't know why it is so much delayed in your case.

For best healing to occur it required that there should be good margins exposed with good blood supply but if the skin over the margins develop without adhesion then there is minimum chances of healing and a procedure known as debridement is done in which the skin over the margins is removed. It will be helpful if you have second opinion from another surgeon,

Topical steroids are also very much helpful in healing process.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask

Thanks

Hi Doctor, this is James aged 30 years. I have undergone Hair transplantation on 29th Aug 2013. I have baldness in the front and on the crown part. After transplantation, i started using Mintop forte as recommended by my Doctor who has done the transplantation. He gave Finax 1mg for one month.

Question is,

1. How long does it take to see the complete results of hair transplantation?

2. How long should i continue to use the Mintop Forte oil. (I am using 5% solution twice a day).

3. Any diet recommended for good hair growth.



Thanks in advance.



Best regards,

James.

My nephew, 8years old had an internal injury on his right kidney. Doctors did a surgery on his tummy to remove the blood from inside. after 2 weeks the kid started complaining on pain in the tummy. after an ultra sound examination, doctors found that haematoma around the right kidney had increased & there was free fluid around the haematoma and in the pelvis.



- Is there any reason to remove the kidney?

- What treatment should he be given?
