Tuluka wa waznuk(a)?


Explanation:
Of the previous answers, I agree most with 'raghad,' although I slightly disagree about the transliteration.
I'm suggesting a concised form, which may sound as if it's coming from a drill sergeant or a prison warden: (Your) height and weight? Of course, 'ma howa' (what is) is nice and proper. In reading classical Arabic, you drop the 'a' sound of the 'weight' word --if it happens to be at the end of a sentence.

Fot the second request/question, I prefer to say: Hal ujriat laka qaTTU ayyu jiraaHatin fi-l ma'ida? For a female, laka becomes laki.
Other people translate 'surgery' with TWO words that include 'operation' ( 'amaliyyatin jiraHiyyatin)

These tow phrases are addressing a male person. If you have them on a medical form, you don't have to worry about having them translated to fit both genders. Thanks
