Hi,
It seems that there might be having heavy deposition of fungus in external ear.
It might be painful removing fungus without doing local part numb.
So doctor might have advised scrapping of fungus under local anesthesia.
There is no need of having empty stomach while local anesthesia.
Ok and take care.

Is the Diflucan and Lamesil and fluconozole pill what is used to treat nail fungi and does it clear up most nailbed infections? My chemo doctor stopped prescribing one of the pills for me after my last chemo and until then it had been helping clear up my nails. Now he passed me off to a pediatrist that told me once you get fungi of the nails then you always have it - (not true?) and he wouldn t prescribe me a pill either. So I been using topical and it doesn t work. I took a urine infection test at home and my leukasites were positive for infection. Not even the dermatologist at Stanford would give me a pill. The pill cleared up my nail infections until the doctor quit prescribing it and I think a low grade nailbed infection can give me cancer eventually? The website said I get a free question then after writing it and submitting there were several options to pay. If it is free like it said, the website, then you can send me an answer via my email please. YYYY@YYYY

I recently had a fungal infection in both ears. According to the Dr. that has cleared up. But now I have a dripping of mostly clear stuff. It causes severe itching so bad that I sometimes make them bleed a little from scratching. They often itch terribly even without the dripping. Is there something I can do to relieve the itching?

Hi. I received general anesthesia for a minor surgical procedure eight days ago. I've noticed that my urine has a strong odor to it--it was particularly powerful the same day of my surgery but it is still lingering. Is it likely that I am smelling the anesthesia being voided from my system? I have no other symptoms and feel fine. Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a close friend that was in a serious auto accident ... brain buise is what they have told us. He has been sedated with propofol now on fentanyl . Seems extremely aggitated and much anxiety. when they lighten his meds to try to wake him up a little/ Does this sound correct. He is in ICU but was wondering if someone read to him or played soft music it would have a calming effect.

Just curious....I recently had an endoscopy performed given "conscience sedation". Apparently, I "woke up" during the procedure (though I have no memory of it) and began grabbing the instrument out of my mouth and fighting with the nursing staff. I now have to have another procedure underr general anethesia. Why was the conscience sedation ineffective and why did I wake up during the procedure fighting?
