Patient discussion about repair

Q. Can an aneurysm repair it self on her own? A friend of mine was diagnosed with an aneurysm. At first he was sure he is going to have a surgery, but afterwards his doctor told him he should get medical treatment. I don't understand - how come some people need a surgical repair while others just take medications? I know this is a serious condition that is life threatening can an aneurysm repair it self on her own? Or maybe when his doctor didn't recommend surgery he malpractices? the reason that I ask is that all the other people that I heard of that had an aneurysm had a surgery, and I don't really trust this doctor.

A. There can be several reasons why an aneurysm is not operatable. It can be its anatomic location, it can be its size or maybe its just to dangerus to oprate because of other diseases your friend suffer from.
Anyway if you want you can go to your GP and ask him why didn't he offer you the surgical treatment.

Q. Can flat feet be repaired by surgery? I have flat feet and I’m looking for all sorts of treatments for it- I heard there is a surgery for it- is it helpful?

A. As far as I know- they don’t treat flat feet that are asymptomatic. So first of all check if it bothers you. secondly there are 2 kinds of flat feet- rigid and flexible. There are different and treated differently. Not always a surgery (which is very painful and costly) is needed– I went to a Rolf method therapist by the advice of my orthopedic and it’s much better now. Ask an orthopedic.

Q. Can I ever get my normal eye sight back? I've been wearing glasses since I was about 6 or 7 years old and I'm really sick of it. I don't want contacts and I don't trust laser eye surgery. Is there a natural resource such as a food that I can eat regularly that will give me my old, none blurry, eye sight back?

A. I've been wearing glasses since I was 6. So far, I haven't heard of any permanent solutions other than lasik. I've tried contacts, but after a while they start irritating my eyes, no matter how advanced they are. They have come up with a procedure that implants a synthetic corrective lens in your eye, pretty expensive procedure at this point.
