Does lower limb paralysis cause urethral obstruction?

my Rt leg is paralysed due to polio, right from my childhood,when I was 3 years old. uroflowmetry tests says my urine flow rate is below normal. ultrasound says my prostate is enlarged. PSA test is negative. Since my Rt leg is 2-3 inches shorter,why lower urine flow rate could not be taken as a consequence of my postural deformity? Why Doctor says it is due to enlarged prostate. If it is so, please tell how safe is endoscopic surgury ? What will be the possible post operation consequences related to my other body functions. Is there any herbal or Ayurvedic treatment for such urethral obstuctions? Thanks

An enlarged prostate will cause reduced urinary flow. Negative PSA means that it probly isn't cancerous. Short leg will cause spinal instability and possible neurological effects on the bladder. Endoscopic surgery is relatively safe. Keep drinking plenty of water to keep urinary tract clear.  (+ info)

How soon after a urethral cyst removal surgery are you able to have sex again?

I had a sub-urethral cyst surgically removed on Feb. 8th--i have those dissolving stitches..I know i need to ask the doctor because everyone is different, but what is the typical waiting period to be able to have sex again?

Anywhere, depending on the Doctor and your body, from 2 weeks to 6 weeks.

I would check with the Doctor, but I bet he say's since it's been 10 days to resume intercourse when you feel comfortable.

EDIT: Your stitches will disolve anytime from a few days post-op up to 2 weeks.  (+ info)

How many of you women agree that urethral orifice and the clitoris should have been switched places?

urethral orifice and the clitoris should have been switched places --therefore, the clitoris gets stimulated more the closer it is to the vagina opening? and the urethral orifice in place of clitoris, therefore less infections?
So first urethral orifice on top then clitoris then vagina - in this order?
although it would be more pleasurable it could turn out dangerous during vaginal child birth...

Are you really as smart as your questions been reflecting?
Yes you have coined a very genius idea. I agree!
This would solve a lot of women's disatisfactions, and men's insecurity!

And oh, one more thing, are you really as sicksea as your avata?  (+ info)

How do I know if I have a urethral stricture?

When I open up my urethral opening a little, I can see a piece of skin connected between both sides of my urethra. For as long as I can remember, I have always dripped a small amount of urine after I urinate. Sometimes, it's not a straight stream either. Does this mean I have a urethral stricture?

no, what it means is you have a concern about your health and need to see a doctor for a diagnosis and any treatment that might be needed.  (+ info)

Is it normal to have your urethral opening in your vagina?

My urethral opening is in my vaginal opening, blocking half of it. Is this normal? I'd imagine it's going to make sex very painful as it blocks half of the opening.. should I see a doctor?

Your urethra is between your labia, making it seem like it's in the vaginal opening. It's completely normal.  (+ info)

From what percentage of obstruction a heart surgery is recomended?

My father has a 40% obstruction on his right coronary and 50% on his left coronary, and a 80% obstruction on his left marginal. With these levels what is the best approach? Heart surgery, angioplasty or other? Detail: although in good health he is 73 yo.

It is not clear from your answer where the 50% on the left coronory was located....
The reason this is important is that disease in the Left Main or 3 vessel disease (L coronory, R coronory, Circumflex) are the 2 clear cut indications for CABG or coronory artery bypass grafting. Mostly of the other blockages are handled and handled well with Angioplasty with or without stents..
Your cardiologist will look at several different things to decide on the treatment approach including collateral blood flow..pump function of the heart etc..
And by the way some of the answers above are ridiculously flawed...if the lesions are such that your cardiologist suggests CABG then that is what he should have.  (+ info)

Does anyone know if its possible to get pregnant after having a urethral diverticulum removed?

I had a Urethral Diverticulum removed back in 2007. Everything went fine and I was able to walk away from the surgery without having to put a sling in or anything. At the time I was 25 years old and the doctor said that my youth would help me with my recovery, but He had mentioned something regarding pregnancy and at the time I was a bit to out of it ( medication wise) to absorb what was said. If anyone has any information on this please let me know. Thank you!

Yes you should be able to get pregnant without complications due to the surgery. However, this should not stop you from doing your research and educating yourself on the matter. If your concerns still persist you should consult with a doctor to reassure you and / or educate you further on the matter. I know this may not be the perfect answer that you where looking for but the bottom line is I do not see a valid reason for that surgery to hinder your ability to get pregnant. Plenty of women get far more directly related and invasive procedures done, and are still able to conceive just fine. Truth is even health women that have never had any issues or procedures done, sometimes even have a difficult time concieveing. This is why it is best to seek help.
I am a surgical tech, almost done with my BSN in nursing, and a future med student; Not to mention my years of experience in not only the med field but also as a female that has had serious fem issues.
I am guessing that your concerns are because you have not yet conceived or are considering trying.
This can be nerve wrecking but, the best advise will be to seek help. Once you have spoken to your doc you may want to consider going to see a midwife.
Midwives are particularly spectacular when it comes to conceiving,under a variety of situations. It is a common misconception that they are simply used for deliveries but in fact, they are not simply used for delivering babies, they are used for the whole process. Pre conception- post gravida. They are a great resource to use once you have decided to try and conceive. Many insurances cover them as well.
I hope that I have helped you at least a little and I wish you the best of luck.  (+ info)

How long can a person live with a bowel obstruction?

My mother-in-law is in the hospital and very sick.She's been there for 5weeks now and they just found out that now she has an obstruction on top of everything else thats wrong with her , and she isn't strong enough to have surgery to remove it.How long can she live with it?They say shes had it for about 3 weeks already.

She must not be completely obstructed if she has had it for 3 weeks. The doctors can probably get it moving without surgery. Either way, pray for her and keep up hope.  (+ info)

What condition results from an obstruction that totally blocks the flow of blood in a coronary artery?

What condition results from an obstruction that totally blocks the flow of blood in a coronary artery?

A. Headache
B. Heart attack
C. Stroke
D. Blindness

Answer is B. Heart attack (Myocardial infarction).
Acute coronary syndromes result from acute obstruction of a coronary artery. Consequences depend on degree and location of obstruction and range from unstable angina to non-ST-segment elevation MI (NSTEMI), ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI), and sudden cardiac death. Symptoms are similar in each of these syndromes (except sudden death) and include chest discomfort with or without dyspnea, nausea, and diaphoresis. Diagnosis is by ECG and the presence or absence of serologic markers. Treatment is antiplatelet drugs, anticoagulants, nitrates, β-blockers, and, for STEMI, emergency reperfusion via fibrinolytic drugs, percutaneous intervention, or, occasionally, coronary artery bypass graft surgery.  (+ info)

Why does my urethral opening feel sore? Why does it feel uncomfortable to urinate?

I had sex the other night with a condom and found forty-five minutes later that my urethral opening was burning and it feels uncomfortable to pee. I am thinking I have the clap but used protection and do not show any signs of discharge. Should i spend the obscene amounts of money to see a doctor or just drink some fluids and wait and see?

the spermicide might be irritating you. Could you be alergic to latex?  (+ info)
