OK I have visible swelling on the lower left side

OK I have visible swelling on the lower left side of my spine at the very bottom. I can feel that it is swollen. My leg hurts from the hip down to the ankle. Recently i could not even put pressure on my left Leg. It sounds like cauda equina symptom. I had disc surgery on S5 L1 9 years ago. Can this be healed without surgery?

This might sound really odd, but it’s like one of my ribs have moved. On the lower left side of my rib cage there is a visible gap that wasn’t there before- I didn’t notice when it happened because it didn’t hurt, but my question here is; what’s going on?

Hello Dr, I am a 35 years old female. Few weeks ago, I experianced terrible tooth pain on the lower left side of my jaw. The pain worsened while chewing or when my upper tooth met with the lower one. I consulted a dentist who said i need to extract both the lower and upper left wisdom teeth which has cavity and are decayed. He said he can t fill it up or have a RCT on them as its not adviced on wisdom tooth . He didn t take Xrays. He said i shouldn t worry much as he will just give me a local anesthetic and pull both the wisdom tooth out at the same time as they are fully erupted. I have sheduled an appointment next week for extraction and I am very worried. Do you think i should ask him to take xrays? And should I extract both teeth at the same time or should i just go for one at the time? And what post operative measures should i take after the extraction. Awaiting your early reply soon. Thanking you in advance!
