It was 6 months before there was severe chest pain, Ct scan revealed Tuberculosis of lungs with pleural effusion in Right lower lobe. After 3 month of continuous treatment again there was pain in my chest and doctor said no need to Worry but after days there was swelling on left side of lung upper portion. Another ct scan showed. Necrosis and collection of cloudy white pus. As pus was removed and certain test were done. No Rifampicin resistance by gene expert. No afb isolated after 6 weeks. Doctor said no need to Worry take tb medicines it will be alright. But again after few days there was swelling in Right breast. Doctor says it is due to tb. Please help me out sir I am suffering from again again pus collection. Is it due to tb although I am taking my medicine. Everyday.Rcinex450. Combutol800,Pyrazinamide 1200. My rif resistance report is normal, afb culture says no afb isolated, is it CANCER or any other disease than tb? please help me out should I go any other test to confirm any other disease?

Mr. Yash. As I have gone through your problem I have to tell you that With lung tuberculosis you had cold abscess in chest wall Which occurs due to involvement of chest bones like mid chest bone sternum ribs joints of sternum and ribs this can be single or multiple this happens due to low immunity of the patient,as for treatment is concerned you are taking proper treatment some times surgical evacuation of the pus or underlying bone is to be taken out to get rid of repeated problems. Plz take care of your diet take high protein diet fruits milk as told by your treating doctor. I hope you will improve I don’t think you have any other diseases.

What Can Lead To Premature Labour?

What Can Lead To Premature Labour?

The usage of “9 months” with pregnancy is almost universal. However, it is not always that all women go through the entire 9 months with the baby. Most often, delivery happens during the 37th to 40th weeks. This allows for the complete growth of the baby within the mother’s womb. When delivery happens before the 37th week, it is known as preterm delivery or premature labour. These babies may not be completely formed and may have temporary or long-term difficulties after birth.

There are many reasons which can induce premature labour, and while some are preventable, some may be inevitable.

  1. Smoking: One of the first things to do when planning a pregnancy or as soon as you realise you are pregnant is to quit smoking. It is way too damaging for the mother and the baby within.
  2. Alcohol consumption or street drug usage: These again can cause not just premature labour but also developmental abnormalities.
  3. Multiple pregnancy: Women pregnant with twins or multiples often have premature labour.
  4. Health problems: Medical conditions like hypertension, diabetes, infections, etc.
  5. Abnormalities: Developmental abnormalities in the newborn like Down’s syndrome, chromosomal abnormalities, etc.
  6. Weight: Being either obese or underweight can cause premature labour.
  7. Prenatal care: While preparing for pregnancy or as soon as you confirm it, ensure you put yourself in the hands of a good gynaecologist. This will ensure you (and your baby) get the required care.
  8. Less gap: Reduced gap between subsequent pregnancies can also induce premature labour.

Warning signs of premature labour

In some women, the doctor might be able to predict the chances of a premature labour and give enough suggestions to look out for warning signs. This will help the woman to be mentally prepared when it is time.
A low backache, which is constant and does not go with usual relief measures.

  1. Frequent pelvic contractions (about every 10 minutes)
  2. Vaginal leaking (fluid or bleeding)
  3. General ill-feeling with symptoms of nausea, cramps, and vomiting/diarrhoea.
  4. Inability to hold down fluids for a full day
  5. Abdominal cramps, similar to a period
  6. Pelvic pressure, a feeling of the baby descending down

What to do? 

As mentioned earlier, if your doctor had warned you of the chances of a preterm labour, watch out for them after 35 weeks.

  • With any of the above symptom, do not indulge in any activity and rest on the left side for a while.
  • Drink about 2 to 3 glasses of juice or plain water.
  • If the symptoms get better, continue to rest for the day.
  • If they do not, call the doctor. Usually, the doctor will ask you to come to the clinic.
  • In some cases, the baby might be delivered and require neonatal care for some days (to weeks) depending on development and symptoms.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Mild dysplasia is not worrisome, if total examination has been done. Infection treatment depends on the extent of infection.

During periods one can take curd and lemon water. As both are acidic properties. Some said yes and some says NO. If they are acidic then in that case can they be taken after 3 days of periods? They affect the periods also?

Hello- This acidic or harmful action of curd and lemon is only mentioned in ayurveda , so only ayurvedic doctor knows what will be its ill effects in near future, this is why allopathic doctors do not suggest to stop these even during menses. Curd is beneficial only if it taken with few rules specially mentioned in ayurvedic texts which are, do not use it continuously, do not use at night, use with sugar not salt, and do not heat curd as we often see in case of kadhi or in some curries.

Hi You means to say that you had last sexual contact on 6 march. If yes then no need to worry, you will get your periods soon. Most of the time periods get irregular after taking this pill.

Please follow diet below. It helps to increase hemoglobin and cures anemia. 1) 1. Leafy Vegetable Green vegetables, especially the leafy green ones are very rich in Iron. For example coriander, spinach, mint and fenugreek. These vegetables are also rich in other vitamins and nutrients essential for pregnancy. 2. Dry Fruits Dates and dry figs are very good in increasing haemoglobin levels. Other dry fruits like walnuts, raisins and almonds will also help in increasing the level of haemoglobin during pregnancy. 3. Pulses Pulses add a good amount of iron and protein to a meal. Have them like salad, soup or add them to bread for good results. Peas, Lentils and beans have a good number of vitamins, minerals, fibre, iron and protein that makes a balanced diet for pregnant women. 4. Asparagus Asparagus is rich in iron. A hot cup of asparagus soup can be consumed when heavy food choices are difficult to digest. You can also add sesame seeds in the soup for more iron content. 5. Fresh fruits Eating fresh fruits like pomegranate and oranges are the best way to increase the level of haemoglobin during pregnancy. Pomegranates are very rich in iron content.

Vegetables rich in Folic Acid Folic acid is significantly involved in the production of haemoglobin. Vegetables like corn, banana, turnips, sprouts, avocado, lettuce, lady finger, etc. Are very rich in folic acid. 7. Nettle Tea Nettle is a herb that is a good source of Vitamin B, iron and vitamin C. It can play a major role in improving your haemoglobin level. Drink tea with the nutrients from nettle leaves twice daily to experience good results. 8.

This could be because of hormonal imbalance. Condition is called irregular ripening of the endometrium because of proesterone defficiency. Adding progesterone for last 5 days (21-25 days) may help you.
