General Physician,
Most of the investigation are normal in that case this pain may be due to fatty liver which may be caused by the prolonged drinking of alcohol this is alcoholic fatty liver. Fatty liver to some extent is normal for those who has the habit of drinking regularly. I don't know the lifestyle you lead you might have ton change the lifestyle. And stop drinking or have in moderation quite low side. Have plenty of leafy vegetables, cereals etc bal was need food and lot of water by mouth. Go for morning walk followed by free hand exercises. It will improve.

Is it necessary to have sigmoidoscopy for abdominal pain. My wife is suffering from chronic pancreatitis since 1 month. We have USG done last week and the USG findings are 1) Chronic pancreatitis with pre pancreatic edema at the tail region. 2). Mild thinking of walls of upper half of the descending colon. Maximum thickness is 8.6 mm and length of the Segment involved is 66 mm. Then our doctor advised her to go for sigmoidoscopy to check the inner wall of descending colon. Please advise is it necessary to have sigmoidoscopy.

When this sphincter becomes relaxed (Lax LES) due to any reason or is weak, it fails to close. Then the acid of the stomach travels back into the esophagus. This backward movement is called GERD or Acid Reflux causing inflammation of the lining of the oesophagus and leads to heartburn, pain and various other symptoms.Add 1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger to a cup of hot water and steep for 10 minutes. Drink three times per day straight after preperation. Ginger contains certain chemicals (gingerols and shogaols) that soothe the entire gastrointestinal tract. It helps strengthen the holding power of the LES (lower esophageal sphincter). Ginger relaxes the wall of the esophagus, aiding digestion and making heartburn less likely. Yu can do work outs

Why there are different opinion regarding anal fissures when some colorectal surgeons say after LIS surgery anal fissures do not come if occasionally stool becomes hard where other say it can come if stool get hard? But the fact is fissures occurs due to high resting pressure of internal sphincter muscle and during LIS surgery this high resting pressure reduce to normal pressure so why after surgery still fissure comes if stool get hard? But generally all people do not get fissures or ulcers if stool becomes hard, some people are habitually constipated still no anal fissures face.

Hello user. Good to see you have researched quite a bit about your disease. Basically high pressure of the int. Sphinc. Is not the cause. It propagates the condition and doesn't allow the fissure to heal. Anal fissure fails to heal because of a cycle between constipation=pain=spasm. By doing LIS (lateral internal sphincterotomy) we break the cycle by targeting spasm and allow nature to heal the fissure. But still you can have hard stool sometimes causing injury to the delicate anal mucosa leading to fissure. But the difference is it will heal quickly as compared to in a patient whose internal sphincter is intact. So even if you have undergone an LIS, You should always avoid constipation by taking lots of fruits and fluids. You can add stool softners to diet. Besides make doing sitz bath bedtime a habit. It Dsnt cost anything. Does it? Hope it clears your doubts. Feel free to enquire more. Regards.

Dear Lybrate User, Gall stones cannot be dissolved. More will keep forming. It is possible that the stones are passing down and giving you pain. You must see a surgeon asap. You can get jaundice or infection from them.

What are the percentage of chances that fistula will reoccur after surgery? How to prevent to it come again?

M.S. (Ayurveda), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
In about 20 % cases Fistula recurs after surgery. Besides this there are chances of complications like stool incontinence - inability to hold stool. So surgery is not a good choice for Anal Fistula Treatment. Whereas Ayurveda recommends Ksharsutra Treatment for Anal Fistula which is the permanent treatment for fistula. Complications like Recurrence of Fistula, stool incontinence are not seen in this treatment. Clinical trials conducted by Indian Council of Medical Sciences (ICMR) at AIIMS New Delhi and PGI Chandigarh have proven that Ksharsutra Treatment is more convenient and more successful as compared to Surgery in case of Anal Fistula patients. No hospitalization or bed rest is required in this treatment. You can continue your routine activities and office work as usual during this treatment. In this treatment, a medicated thread is placed in Ksharsutra tract, Medicine present in Ksharsutra works for about 10 days so it needs to be changed after 10/ 15 days. No. Of thread changes required for complete healing of Fistula depends on length, depth and branching pattern of Fistula. Fistula heals @ 0.5 to 1 cm per thread change. You can contact through Lybrate or consult in person at clinic for clinical assessment of your Fistula.
