Hi There

If it was just an allergic reaction to a drug then there is no problem in going for surgery.

But i would like to advise you to meet a cardiologist personally and get yourself properly evaluated before going for surgery.

Good Luck

4 weeks ago I had breast surgery to have spots biopsied. Now I have a huge hole in my breast the size of a peach. My sister cleans and repacks the huge wound 2x daily. Today she says there is another chamber in the wound that is black. What should I do?

doctor1 MD

Hi

I would advise you to apply soframycin ointment over it.

Also do culture sensitivity test of the wound which is black.

If infection is found then itt has to be treated with sensitiive antiobiotics.

Also do a bilateral mammography test.

Regards
DR DE

Hi,
Thanks for choosing healthcaremagic.
Subcentimetric lymph nodes are nothing to be worried of. They will not cause any problem in your life in future. The lymph nodes usually get enlarged due to any infection/disease. In your case, they would have been enlarged because of the infection i.e....

and he has gone through a breast surgery also.please advice me do can i get married with this boy or not.I like to know that will my sex life go normal after marriage or not.......

Hi,

Breast surgery does not affect your hormonal status and does not affect your future life. In breast surgery (gynaecomastia) we remove only the enlarged breast tissues.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had breast surgery 6 weeks ago and I developed seroma. How long does it last. The new Dr wants to put a tube in again and have the surgery over again to relieve the fluid. He said I have to have it removed or I will never get rid of the fluid. Is that true?

She gets treatment every three to four months. She had heard of liposuction as the lymph fluid collects there. She is if healthy build and verry little apparent fat. Where CAn I educate myself on the internet to fully understand her situation. She is 54 yrs old.

doctor1 MD

Hi and thanks for the query,
It is important to know exactly the state of the lymph nodes. A histological examination of the lymph nodes is important. The indication of the breast surgery is important to be known. If it were a cancer, its important to know if the cancer spread or not. In case...

My 85 year old mother had breast surgery last week (lumpectomy, right breast, 11:00) and now, 1 week later, is experiencing a very strong pain in her right buttock. I think it may be sciatica, or perhaps from not using that side for a week, it may be feeling strained. Any suggestions?

doctor1 MD

Hello,

She should be first evaluated by a neurologist to determine whether it is truly sciatica or could there be another nerve root involved that may have been trapped DURING THE TIME OF SURGERY or was she not properly padded or were her legs not mobilized enough during the procedure so as to...

Hi - I was in a car accident 2 weeks ago, had X-rays done and came back fine. Since then, my bruises and laceration on my chin and right rib cage and arm are slowly healing (still visible) , however the sharp pain on my right breast is so painful every time I take deep breaths and lay on my chest. Even when I sit up or move around and try and raise my left arm; the pain starts to react. The impact was all towards the left side of my body and none on my right. Could this be due to inflammation and bruising (internal on my breast), or what could it possibly be and how can I treat it!? Please help, thank you!
