I disagree with your comment. He has been more consistent than the other linemen. Actually hope he comes back for a fifth year and improve his draft stocks. But that just the selfish me.
Love it. Bulletin board material for extra motivation to this team. Go Bucks!
I have not heard about "nervous nuts" before. May be you referring to retractile testicle ??
I gotta say that's the most common complaint we get after vasectomy and unfortunately there is no way to get around this as local anesthesia will not address this issue. In majority of patients, it's manageable though and should not scare people away from getting snipped :)
It's not March yet but I guess we still can talk vasectomies!
The fluid from the testes is mostly sperms and constitutes less than 1% of the entire seminal fluid volume (your ejaculate). The majority of the ejaculated fluid (~ 70%) comes from the seminal vesicles (the organ stores sperms, lies behind the bladder) and the rest comes from the prostate glands. Both seminal vesicles and prostate glands connect distal to the cut end of the vas during vasectomy. This is the reason you don't notice much difference in ejaculate fluid volume after vasectomy as you only take small percentage off it.
After vasectomy, the sperms (fluid from testes) will be resorbed by the body. In rare incidents, if the cut end of the vas is not sealed well (tied off well during vasectomy) and some sperms will leak but the body will wall it off quickly around the cut end of the vas and from what we called sperm granuloma. This will be felt as tiny pea size nodule in the scrotum.
Hope that answer your question :)
Urologist here, deal with balls not bones :)
MRI is magnetic resonance based imaging, no X-rays is involved, can be repeated with minimal or no risk. Generally reserved for soft tissues (ligaments, muscles, tendons, etc) and cartilages injuries. It does show bone fractures as well with very high sensitivity. Obtaining an MRI is a time consuming and usually requires at least 45 minutes to finish the test.
CT scan is an X-ray based test with very high resolution than normal plain film X-rays. Very fast to obtained (seconds to minutes). Shows bone lesions/ fractrues well. less sensitive to soft tissue injuries. Can't be repeated often due to radiation side effects.
Hope that helps!
The one thing that drew my attention is Joe saying Nick had TWO BIG INCISIONS" This tells me the injury was not your regular sport hernia that can be repaired laparoscopically. The fact he required open surgery means his recovery is longer than reported and he re-injures the tore muscles this will be very hard thing to repair.
Good luck to Nick with his recovery and best of luck in the NFL. Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye.
Good luck with your recovery and NFL journey, Nick. Can't wait to cheer for you on Sundays.
Once a Buckeye always a Buckeye.
Not sure that post is correct, it's @Purdue
High chance of re-injury, Break open his hernia repair which is much tougher surgery to re-do. Recovery from hernia is driven by body induced inflamation and fibrosis, a process that takes time.
It's a sports hernia, recovery typically range from 8-10 weeks before he can play (individual dependent, each body heals differently). We will be lucky to have him back for the playoff. Take it from a surgeon (Urologist though).
Thanks Des. Don't have cable subscription. I checked first row sport and VipBox but they don't have links.
Anyone have a link to watch the matches?
This is pure GOLD.
Best of luck to him. Move on to the next one.
