I had an operation one year ago to remove a mass from my uterus. The surgeon also said she would check to see if my fallopian tubes were blocked as I have fertility issues. After the surgery she told me that my left fallopian tube was blocked. She did not have to remove the tube as it was not connected to the mass. I had surgery 2 days ago hoping that my surgeon could unblock the tube only to be informed in the recovery room that my left tube was non existent. How can a fallopian tube just disappear???????

I recently had a bilateral vasectomy. I was put under for the procedure. Since the procedure I have experienced a numb sensation in my right leg from the thigh to my calf. It feels as if part of my leg is asleep, and will not wake up no matter what position I am in. I am not on any medication, and have had no other side effects from the procedure. What could be causing this numb feeling in my leg?

There are a number of factors that could be contributing to the numbness on your leg. It is rare for anesthesia to cause the isolated unilateral numbness you are describing. Your symptoms appear to be more consistent with nerve damage either from the your positioning on the operating table, the vasectomy itself, or some . . . → Read More: I recently had a bilateral vasectomy.

i have a boil that was lanced the packing fell out it won’t drain and its closing up while continuing to swell should i go back and have them look at it again?

The purpose of a packing is to wick out the abscess fluid (containing bacteria, inflammatory cells, and dead tissue) as the wound heals. If your skin closes before the abscess has been fully drained, then . . . → Read More: i have a boil that was lanced the packing fell out it won’t drain and its closing up while continuing to swell should i go back and have them look at it again?

You should be evaluated by your primary care physician as it appears that you are suffering from tonsillitis or perhaps recurrent / chronic tonsillitis. Tonsillectomy is absolutely indicated for patients with airway obstruction, sleep disturbance, or an infection that is unresponsive to medications. Tonsillectomy is indicated in patients with over persistent infections yearly despite . . . → Read More: I am a 20 year old female.
