Surgery and Infection by Fuck Ninnerbanks - Mon, 13 Mar 2017 21:49:32 EST ID:TYRR92s5 No.54839 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have recently (this weekend) undergone minor surgery to stitch up my ear after the top was split due to being attacked with a knife and I'm on clarithromycin to prevent infection and I was wondering, out of paranoia, how I would know if the wound was infected. I am obviously concerned about it healing properly and getting in touch with the surgery clinic has been a nightmare. I've been using an ointment regularly to stem off infection but was wondering, would it be obvious if there was an infection? I've never had anything like this before.

Photo is my ear post operation.

it would be obvious. keep it clean and disinfected. if there is no unusual changes in color surrounding it you are fine. looks like top notch stitching to me.

This may sound stupid but they told me to avoid touching the area unless it is to apply the ointment, but I'd assume I'd have to clean the area regularly as well with water?

yes, clean water and soap. obviously be very gentle, and it is going to sting because it is not healed. you can use hydrogen peroxide if you have viking blood in your veins, but let me tell you that will burn like fire, but guarantee to sanitize it.

i just want to restate that is some really impressive stitching they did, you should be happy about it. i worked in an ER for a year and i saw a few ears and noses stitched back together and it was rarely as neat as yours. it will obviously have a scar but it should heal very well and be not very noticeable.

Ah, thank you for seeing me at such short notice, Doctor 420.

*sits down*

Well, I'll get right to it. For the past 6 months or so I've had a rash or discolored skin around the base of my penis, both groins, and the entire "mons pubis" area. The border between the normal skin and the discolored skin is quite sharp. It doesn't hurt but sometimes it feels very itchy. Let me just show it to y- oh.... this is a worksafe board you say? I'm sorry

*puts pants back on*

Anyway, I've been to two different doctors about it and they both prescribed antifungal cream. First I had clotrimazole %1 cream, then I was prescribed daktarin/miconazole 2% cream. Neither cream has helped get rid of the problem. I'm guessing it's some kind of "jock itch" but none of the antifungal cream has helped. What would you suggest I try next?

Thanks for your help

Eat lots of salads and fruits. Avoid red meat, high "bulking" fiber diets and DON'T SMOKE.

Red meat and bulk fiber are terrible for your digestive system. Smoking and processed red meat are just as bad realistically. Fiber that is a bulking agent in the colon is garbage like cereal and baked beans. Big food companies pay doctors and have advertisements saying you need more fiber but they don't tell you what kind of fiber. You want insoluble fiber like salads, corn and lettuce. Bulk fiber makes your turds the size of bricks and causes colon/bowel issues. Red meat is very difficult to break down by intestinal flora meaning that the movement is extremely slow and the amount of intestinal bacteria dies off or isn't in ample supply as they can't break down the red meat fast enough to supply large numbers. (Which you want.)

I have carpal tunnel and my neurologist gave me a steroid shot in each wrist today. Within an hour my right index finger and thumb had went numb and then my index finger ached and felt like it needed to be popped. A few hours later my left thumb started aching and hasn't stopped. I can barely use it. What the hell? I thought this shit was supposed to help?

Whether taking blood or iv/injections the hands are just not a real good place to poke needles into. Unfortunately. Hopefully it will subside quickly and hopefully the injections are meant to last at least a week. Justa thought, try soaking these in dissolved epsom salts, then rinse and put lotion on them. May sound like BS, but epsom salts can make swelling go down to normal and pain subside and numbness back to normal in mere minutes. At least I found it to be a must to have, even possiblt better than the injections to begin with. I am a believer in
these so-called salts, which is actually magnesium sulfate.

Yesterday I woke up and every single finger on both hands hurt,both wrists,I could barely move my left thumb at all and when I did I wanted to scream. Today is the same. I'm calling my neurologist in the morning,this is not normal. Even with the carpal tunnel they don't normally hurt this much,it's mostly numbness and strange sensations not straight up joint pain.

im tired of posting this. you don't have carpal tunnel, you have two, one in each wrist. the tunnel through your carpal bones. you wrongly think you have carpal tunnel syndrome, when you are almost definitely suffering from lateral epicondylitis. pressure, heat and stretching into the forearm extensor muscles (especially near the lateral epicondyle) will resolve the issue. they are probably impinging the radial and median nerves. stop poking needles into your capsular ligaments you retard, they can barely ever heal, and if they do its always weaker at the injury site

Recent tests came back and I got a reading of 161(IU/L) for ALT and 55(IU/L) for AST.. They've both risen slightly since another test conducted about a month ago... Obviously, this is indicative of some kind of liver damage, and I'm extremely worried because I need dat Liver to metabolize other medications, like Accutane and Estradiol (neither of which I've started, btw, so that's not the cause) How concerned should I be? Is this possibly related to something more transient and less threatening, or am I totally fucked?

The only way you'll really figure out how bad your liver damage is by getting an ultrasound or an endoscopy. I had pain in my liver for a long time after drinking alcohol and I found out I had a mild fatty liver and enlarged liver. I took a break from drinking for 5 months and ate food that helps the liver heal and didn't have much problems since. I did drink beer just recently after abstaining and didn't have any problems. I would take a break from anything like drugs or alcohol and get an ultrasound if you want to know for sure.

I used a solution of KOH on a deep wart once, slid right off, painless.

Of course you don't want to be too liberal with your application of it.

After I exposed the root, I clipped out the infected areas with a cuticle clipper.

You need to be able to prepare the solution though, I used a 20% solution of KOH by weight. Dissolve the KOH/NaOH flakes with hot water.

Anyways, cut out the exposed area, then apply KOH or NaOH with a q tip, little by little. As in dab it on (only on the wart, try not to touch the surrounding skin) let it dry, and do it again. Wipe it with a cloth after a few applications; it should just slide off.

Also wear gloves. Don't get the liquid on your skin. Keep some vinegar ready in case you get it anywhere it shouldn't be.

This is the third time I've experienced this. For two days now after a night of smoking weed from a bong and having some weird breathing and chest tightness issues, I've had some serious chest pain.

It's like a tightness and burning sensation mixed with the occasional sharp pain, but is only noticeable when I take a deep breath or with the vibrations of walking. I cannot take in a deep breath without feeling it.

This is not an everytime-I-smoke kind of thing. I've had this before, but it's been many months since the last time I felt this.

Weirdly, I smoke cigarettes and B&Ms all the time and they cause zero noticeable irritation to my lungs/chest/throat, and never create any lasting tightness like this.

Any ideas about what it could be? It's causing me some serious anxiety.

Ummm, I hate to be the bearer of bad news. But this 100% a good time to head to a free clinic and get tested. My guess would be Herpes with no real medical tests to go on.

The possibility of just acne is still likely. But I would definitely get tested ASAP. People aren't always as loyal and honest as they say. And it'd be hazardous to you to neglect this on that basis.

I've had this for a few months now and I think it's getting worse

It's nothing major but before whenever I would curl a moderate weight (20lbs) I would feel pain in my elbow but after the second curl the pain would go away.

Now it seems that whenever I make a fist and do a curl motion with or without weight (hammer curl) I feel a little something in my elbow

Is this tendonitis? What can I do to remedy this??
