Mr.Vinil, This is the age you get lot of acne. You should see that scars don't form. This makes the face look ugly. Drink lot of water. Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits. Wash the face 4 times per day. You require medical advice. You should consult me for treatment. Get back to me for further advice.

Dear Lybrate User, You need to take Homoeopathic NUX VOM 1000, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach. You can also try Homoeopathic Liver Tonic LIV-T (SBL company).

All About Colorectal Surgery

Colorectal surgery is the broad term for surgical procedures performed on the colon, the rectum and the anus. There are various different surgical procedures which fall under colorectal surgery and these are used to treat a vast array of disorders, such as:

  1. Anal cancer
  2. Colorectal cancer
  3. Severe complications related to constipation
  4. Anal injuries
  5. Inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract
  6. Congenital defects
  • Procedures: The surgeries under colorectal surgery are performed after diagnostic tests such as proctoscopy, sigmoidoscopy and defecating proctography. The most common diagnostic test is colonoscopy. These help to identify the origin and nature of the problem and decide which surgical procedure is to be followed. The procedures under colorectal surgery are as follows:
  • Colectomy: This procedure involves removal of a section of the large intestine. This is known as partial colectomy. In extreme cases, such as advanced cancer or severe gastrointestinal infection, the entire colon is removed and this is called total colectomy. Sometimes, the rectum is also taken out along with the colon and this is called proctocolectomy.
  • Colonic polypectomy: An abnormal growth of tissues in the inner lining of an organ is known as a polyp. Colonic polypectomy is done to eliminate polyps from the colon and rectum before they become malignant. This can be done endoscopically. Surgery is required in case of large polyps.
  • Strictureplasty: Chronic or repeated bowel inflammation causes scar tissue to accumulate in the large intestine. This results in the narrowing of the colon. Stricturoplasty removes the scar tissue so that proper flow of digestive contents is resumed.
  • Colostomy or Ileostomy: A damaged section of the colon is removed and the shortened intestine is then attached to another opening (stoma) in the anterior wall of the abdomen.
  • Hemorrhoidectomy: This surgical process is used for swollen hemorrhoids or blood vessels, which form in the anal canal. Hemorrhoidectomy is extremely effective in removing hemorrhoids, but the surgery also involves a number of complications.
  • Anoplasty: Anoplasty or imperforate anus correction is done to correct birth defects in the rectum and the anus. The structural flaw does not allow the stool to pass properly from the rectum and so it is repaired through surgery.

The fatty liver the build up fat in the liver normally there is some amount of fat is normal in liver but if it more than 5to 10% of the at of! over then it is fatty liver it is a reversable condition that can be resolved with changed lifestyles there two types alcoholic and non alcoholic it normally had no symptoms and typically does not cause permanent damage. Liver converts harmful things of body to harmless substance. So naturally you have to give rest to liver by taking less harmful things. There by recoup the liver itself.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Along with the medication you have be very careful about your diet as you had a ulcer -avoid spicy, fried & junk food completely, have 4-5 small meals including snacks rather than 3 large meals as an empty stomach will aggravate your condition, do not skip meals, have meals on time, give about 1-2 hrs before you lye down after meals, avoid tea, coffee, cold drinks, alcohol, tobacco if you consume -do not stop medicines unless told by your doctor as in your case you have to continue it, stopping it will give rise to pain -consult a gastroenterologist for investigation & proper medication for your problem.

Profuse bloody diarrhea is due to organisms like shigella. You need course of antibiotic and the symptom takes a while to settle if not then you may need further tests like sigmoidoscopy.

Mr Anthony, Looking at the details given, it appears that the kidney function is good. Even on one kidney a person can live a normal life. As regards her BP if it is in control with cilindipine continue the same. Her sugar levels are high. Fasting 114 mg is marginally high. Whereas after food levels is definitely too high, suggesting a need for taking proper anti diabetic medication. Ayurvedic drugs do not bring the sugar levels to normal. After food level is taken after 2 h of food. If it is above 200 mg, signifies diabetes. Please understand various conditions which she has are not curable, they can only be controlled with proper medication. So continue the treatment. If kidney function does go down then dialysis is the option.
