You were incredible on "Whose Line." I especially loved your performances in "If you know what I mean." You were extremely funny in that. Do you hope to return to "Whose Line" when it comes back?

Hi Dr. Law!

I recently underwent a stage 1 urethroplasty procedure for severe hypospadias. This is my second time going through this procedure, as the first time my buccal graft developed multiple strictures after about 9 years.

I'm also a Nurse Practitioner hoping to enter the field of urological surgery and I was wondering if you knew of any new research coming down the pipeline about other types of autografts or allografts that can be used for these types of procedures? Thanks!

Hi Dave! Awesome AMA

My question: When you guys log on and are "acting normal" or just 'playing like everyone else,' what exactly are you doing? Observing? Monitoring? What?

Thanks so much!

I think its awesome that you're doing this.

I am a male in nursing school in the united states. I know the roles of health care professionals differ from country to country, but how important to you is the role of nurses especially in the emergency room? I want to become a pediatric nurse someday (preferably urology) but I'd like to try different areas of the hospital first. What is the overall atmosphere in the ER?

I was born with many health issues and other birth defects (all internal) and thus, have been to the ER multiple times, and it just does not seem like a good place to be, both working and being a patient. I'm sure its different depending upon where you're from, but I'd just like to get your thoughts.

TL:DR I'm a male nursing student in the United States. 1. Are the roles of nurses important to you in the ER? 2. What is the overall atmosphere in the ER

I'm so sorry you have CF. I can't even imagine what that's like. I'm 18 with a large amount of birth problems myself and I honestly don't know how long I have either. (I did an AMA too and you can read about what I have if it interests you). But I just wanted to wish you the best of luck and hope you feel as great as you can.
