Question: re: my query of 9/27/13 about pain when touching forehead above and to right of right eyebrow: I followed your advice and took viatmin B12, 1000 mcg daily for 3-4 days and the pain went away completely. I continued the B12, but after two to three weeks the pain recurred. Any further ideas? Thank you.

Brief Answer: Sinus inflammation needs to be excluded... Detailed Answer: Hi, Apologies for the late reply, I was unaware that you were trying to reach me. I was able to review and summarize our previous discussion. Like I mentioned in our discussion, the closest possibility that I could think of was frontal sinus inflammation. This is a condition that is known to recur. You will need X-ray of paranasal sinus or CT head to rule out sinsuitis. The test can be done with the help of an ENT surgeon. Since the pain has been constantly present since more than 2 months now, I would urge you to visit your ENT surgeons office; discuss your symptoms and signs and if needed CT scan / X-ray can be done to arrive at a conclusion. In the interim, if the pain is troubling you, you can use over the counter pain reliever such as tylenol pain relief. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards

I had gastric bypass surgery on June 11th. Last week I went back to work and 1 of he incisions strarted to bother me. It is red at the incision and the area surrounding it. The skin is also hot and it s painful. I called the dr and they said it was normal. I do not have a fever or stomach pain and the incision is closed so there is no puss or seepage of any kind. The nurse told me ice it and take Tylenol and eventually it would be ok. She said it was scar tissue healing and due to my increased activity it was very irratated. What do you think?

Hello I had abdominoplasty three weeks ago.I had a marcane pain buster after surgery for a few days and never experienced much p ain at all since then. I only took an occasional hydrocodone , motrin and tylenol . Everything was great and then a week ago I started feeling sick. My urine got dark and my skin began to itch and my urine was dark. It turns out my liver enzymes and esophinosil levels are up and I might have cholestasis hepatitis. I am to f/u with my gastroenterologist tomorrow. I have a headache now. No fever or pain anywhere. The ct showed nothing but the Gi doctor on call says I still need a sono and it could be from anesthesia. They took me off flecanide which I take for occasional paroxismal a fib. I am wondering what the best diet for this is as I am not hungry and what the recovery time is for this. Thank you very much
