Question: A friend of mine has a fatty tissue lump above her tailbone on her back. She went to liposuction dr he said he could not remove it because there is too many nerve endings there. Is this true? Could you refer her to a dr in the sioux city?

Dear Friend,

From what I can understand from your complaints your friend could be having a spina bifida at the level of this swelling. This swelling could be a lipoma. Before any intervention you will require MRI Of spine and you should consult a neurosurgeon for its removal in your area.

I am sorry I cannot suggest you any particular name in your area. But any tertiary care hospital with in house Neurosurgeon would be able to do a good job.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
