I am suffering from hiatal hernia and ulcer. Would a surgery be essential to heal. I feel pain while breathing and playing running etc. Taking trymo 2 tabs twice a day and omezd 3 times before food. Please help.

Respected lybrate-user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* The hiatus hernia induced ulcer heals with proper medications, dietary restrictions. No surgery is required for that purpose.* Surgery is mandatory to - cure hernia - control those symptoms or problems that are not coming under control by medicines - very large hernia with possibility of future complications - respiratory problems - patient concerns. Hope this will help you for sure. Still better look out can be possible with the reports attached of the endoscopy if possible. Can opt for private consultation. Wishing you fine health and happy Diwali in advance. Regards dear take care.

Hi. There is soreness due to damage in the muscles. Use ice pack for 5 to 7 mins to the affected area. You should start exercises gradually if you are taking a break. Avoid heavy weight lifting for few days. TC.

Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Simple Knee Exercises would help to strengthen the quadriceps muscle which is the key muscle. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping a soft ball underneath the knee and you have to keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Knee Pain unable to walk one step with walker Her knees would have been totally damaged due to arthritis of both the knees. That's the reason she is unable to walk one step as there will be knee rigidity.

Hello lybrate-user, Appreciate your concern for your mother. As you shared she feels lethargic and assuming she doesn't move much could be leading to some gastric issues. Believe me, a supportive family can do wonders to change the outlook and wellbeing of any individual. Set a proper schedule for her day .Let it be written clearly on a paper and displayed in her room. Don't give her much time alone to let her sink into bouts of lonliness. Take support of other immediate family members to keep her involved .Ensure warmth and care. Discuss things with her. Day to day events to invoke response. A healthy diet and companionship can do wonders to her wellbeingAll the best.

Acute pain at the back side of left shoulder since last 3 months. Problem in shoulder movement too.

Acute pain at the back side of left shoulder since last 3 months. Problem in shoulder movement too.
It is called as peri arthritis shoulder and for that you can do hot water fermentation and ice therapy at home. If you have shoulder pain then the stiffness will develop more that might make the arm to restrict with the normal range of motion in the shoulder joint and there by the blood circulation gets minimized to the shoulder / arm. In few cases if the sleep is disturbed because of the shoulder pain then Cervical pillow can be used which might make you to have better posture of the shoulder, neck and arm Physiotherapy Treatment: You shall also take physiotherapy treatment called shortwave diathermy which would help you to get relieved with pain. Interferential therapy can be given. If the stiffness is more then Wax therapy should be given along with shoulder manipulation which will help to reduce the stiffness and the range of motion will be improved in the shoulder joint.

Hi Sir, I would like to hear from you regarding my health condition. I am having an acute/mild shoulder blade pain when leaning forward and deep breath. The pain is in left side of my back. I do not feel any pain in daily activities but when I deep breath and lean forward it hurts slightly. I also has a dry cough but not very much. I visited my nearest doctor for the same and he suggested to do some some tests. The tests and their readings are: Plasma Glucose (F): 85 mg/dl HB: 14.2 gm/dl TC: Erythrocytes 5.12 millions/cu. Mm, leukocytes 7000/cu. Mm DC: neutrophil 53%, Lymphocytes 33%, monocyte 4%, eosinophil 10%, basophil 0% T4: 8.70 mcg/dl TSH: 7.74 mcU/ml Uric Acid: 5.0 mg/dl Creatinine: 0.97 mg/dl ASO Titre: 154.4 IU/ml ESR: 1st Hr 12 mm Chest X-Ray: No parenchymal lung lesion seen, Trachea is central in position, Hilar shadows are normal, Domes of the diaphragm are normal, costophrenic angles are sharply outlines, cardiac size and shape are normal, bony cage and soft tissue shadows are normal I am very anxious about the problem and want a complete recover. The doctor I visited has said that I have no problem and he prescribed some medicines are: montana-L for 10 days Mucolite syrup thrice daily Thyrox 12.5 half tablet daily Riconia tablet daily. The doctor said I have slightly thyroid for which he prescribed Thyrox 12.5 but I did not understand for what the back shoulder pain is coming. I can do my daily activities very easily without any pain in my back but I am getting little stress about the pain. I want to know why this pain is happening. However I am very healthy and my BMI is 20.5 I would therefore request you to sort out the problem

You have to do the exercise regularly which would help you to become more normal ,after doing range of motion exercises then you can do the strengthening exercises. And ice therapy will definitely help you to reduce the inflammation.

Fractures - How Can You Prevent Them?

Fractures - How Can You Prevent Them?

We have 207 bones in the body and breaking of any one of them can be extremely painful. Broken bones are called fractures and are most often a result of accidents. The risk of breaking a bone depends largely on your age and fractures are most commonly suffered by children and elderly people. There are many types of fractures. The most important amongst these are:

  1. Complete or incomplete fractures: This refers to the way a bone breaks. A complete fracture involves the breaking of a bone into two or more separate pieces while in an incomplete fracture, the bone does not break all the way through and may only be cracked.
  2. Compound fractures: Compound fractures are also known as open fractures. This refers to fractures where the bone tears through the skin.
  3. Simple fractures: Fractures where the bone does not tear through the skin are known as simple fractures. This can be further categorized as greenstick fractures, transverse fractures, oblique fractures and impacted fractures.

Severe pain is one of the most common symptoms of a fracture. Other symptoms include swelling or bruising over the bone area, loss of function and deformity. Any form of a fracture needs medical attention. In most cases, using a splint to reset and support the broken bones can help heal them. This process can be surgical or non-surgical depending on the extent of the fracture. In some cases a pin or metal plate may need to be implanted along with the bone to give them support while they heal.

Fractures can be easily prevented. In your home look out for things you could trip over or bang into. Keep all stairways clear of obstructions and do not use them when wet. Advise your children not to run in the house as tiles are slippery and they could fall and hurt themselves this way.

Follow general safety precautions like wearing a seatbelt while driving or wearing a helmet while riding a bike or bicycle. This can significantly reduce your chances of breaking a bone if caught in an automobile accident.

The weaker your bones, the easier they are to break. Eat food rich in calcium and vitamin D to build stronger bones. Milk and other dairy products are rich in calcium while the best way to get vitamin D is by exposing yourself to the early morning sunlight.

If you suffer from osteoporosis, exercise regularly to improve your balance and increase the strength of your bones and muscles. Your doctor may also prescribe medication for the same.
