Dear , I think your problem is anal fissure which is either due to severe diarrhoea or to passage of hard faeces. So you need to concentrate on constipation and treat that. Remember it is not a disease but a lifestyle problem.

The passing of gas in evening depends on your diet in day and water intake. It does not seem to be related with ulcer. Some times it may be due to amoebiasis and altered bacterial flora. I would advice to consult for anti amoebic treatment and lactobacillus after meal it will help you to relieve your symptoms.

Hello. Acidity occurs when there is excess secretion of acids in the gastric glands of the stomach. When the secretion is more than usual, we feel, what is commonly known as heartburn, which is normally triggered off by consumption of spicy foods. Here are some home remedies to cure acidity. - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead. - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday. - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity. - Coconut water is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity. - Drink a glass of cold milk - everyday. - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before going to bed. - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals. - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc. - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals. - Jaggery, lemon, banana, almonds and yogurt are all known to give you instant relief from acidity. - Excessive smoking and drinking will increase acidity, so cut down. - Try chewing gum. The saliva generated helps move food through the esophagus, easing symptoms of heartburn. - Eat Ginger as it aids in digestion. - A simple preparation of lemon water with sugar can be sipped on an hour before lunch to reduce uneasiness. - Have vegetables like drumsticks, beans, pumpkin, cabbage, carrot and spring onions. Medication: Take Biochemic medicine - Natrum Phos. 6x/ thrice daily ½ an hour after meals.

IBS is caused by too may factors which are usually seen in personalities with anxiety ,fear, stress etc. In homoeopathy the cause of the disease is traced and we do not treat the symptoms of the disease as it arises from a cause. And altered immunity is the cause of every disease as you know from the school days. The cause of the altered immunity is the genetic make up of you which has to be studied in detail with a consultation and a suitable medicine arrived will correct your problem for ever to bring a permanent cure.

Please. Specify as to what you mean by bloating. Do you mean your are getting fatter or if your getting swelling of the feet. Anyway I believe you are taking whey protiens. This when taken over a long period of time can increase the Uric acid in your body and cause kidney stones. Please give us the necessary details.

Laparoscopic surgery for Gall Stones

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon
Ask Free Question
What is laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopic surgery is the technique of performing surgery by making small cuts (5-10 mm usually) over the abdomen and inserting special instruments through them. Hence the name 'keyhole' surgery. The surgeon performs surgery using these special instruments, one of which is a camera while looking at the image on a screen.

The advantage of this procedure over traditional surgery is that since there is the absence of a large incision, pain is much less, recovery is faster, the hospital stay is less, complications are less.

On top of this, there is a cosmetic benefit of absence of scar!!

Nowadays, we perform almost all abdominal surgeries laparoscopically including those for appendicitis, gallstones, hernia, GERD (reflux disease), peptic ulcers, achalasia cardia, spleen removal, pancreatic surgery, liver surgery, surgery for cancers of stomach, food pipe (esophagus), small intestine and large intestine (colon and rectal cancers), hysterectomy (uterus removal) and nephrectomy (kidney removal).

In addition, we also perform specialised surgeries like those for morbid obesity laparoscopically. One of our award winning videos has been for sympathectomy for excessive sweating over palms, axilla and feet.

So, welcome to the world of Minimal Access Surgery.

Advantages of keyhole surgery:

Cosmetic
Minimal pain
Fast recovery
Shorter hospitalization
Faster return to daily routine
Earlier return to work
Less wound infection complications
Fewer chances of postoperative chest infection

You have not mentioned if she has pain while passing stool, find out if she is afraid of passing stool because of pain, if that be the case she most probably has a fissure in ano, which requires anal dilatation under general anesthesia, if fissure is ruled out by proctologist, she needs to have bowel training, find out if she is used to consume cathartics like laxative tablets or medicines in such situations she has to be weaned off from such medications gradually as she becomes dependent. In case she is employed and toilet facilities are not available at the place of work she should change her job, she should quit the habit of voluntarily preventing herself from relieving/ or emptying her bowels.
