Hello Dr. My mother is 55 yrs old and she has been detected with a single stone of 5 mm in her gallbladder. How can it be treated? Is the operation only solution? Or it can be treated in any on way also? Upto what stage operation can be withheld?

Mere presence of stones in gb is not an indication for surgery. Only if your mother ever had symptoms like pain abdomen & the reason diagnosed was gallstones, then you need to consider surgery for her, else no need.

Stomach Ulcer - 4 Best Ways To Get Pain Relief!

MBBS

Stomach Ulcer - 4 Best Ways To Get Pain Relief!

Ulcer pain can be uneasy and unbearable at times. It is caused by a bacterium known as the H. Pylori. Pain medication, lifestyle changes, and healthy eating habits can ensure pain relief from this condition. Here is a list of 4 best ways to get instant pain relief from an ulcer:

  1. Medication - H. Pylori is often found in the digestive tract. Doctors suggest various combinations of antibiotics kill this bacterium. Some of those include tetracycline, levofloxacin, metronidazole, and tinidazole. These are prescribed as per the resistance rate of the bacteria. There are other sets of medication that blocks acid production in the body. These drugs which commonly go by the name of PPIs include esomeprazole, lansoprazole, and pantoprazole. The third set of medications reduces acidity in the stomach and gives instant relief. They are readily available over the counter and goes by the name antacid. The final line of medicines that are often prescribed by doctors includes Cytotec and Carafate. They protect the tissue lining of the intestine and the stomach.
  2. Consumption of cranberry - Cranberry has multiple health benefits. One of those includes the ability to fight against bacteria of the urinary tract. They also do not allow the bacteria to settle on the surface of the bladder. Cranberry in the form of juice, supplement and as a whole can be consumed daily to get relief from the stomach ulcer. It should be taken in specific quantity as too much of cranberry consumption can upset the stomach. Packaged cranberry juice from the market can be avoided as they contain high level of fructose which can unsettle the stomach.
  3. Flavonoids - A compound known as bioflavonoids are known to be extremely helpful for pain relief from an ulcer. These compounds naturally occur in many vegetables and fruits such as soybeans, berries, apples, legumes, green tea, broccoli and berries. Bioflavonoids available in red wine and citrus food should be strictly avoided as they can trigger ulcer pain. Bioflavonoids should be taken in measured quantities as too much consumption of it can cause harm in blood clotting. It can be consumed in the form of supplements if the body doesn’t receive the same from the daily diet.
  4. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice - This compound is nothing but licorice with the sweet flavour pulled out of it. A study showed that they are capable of completing curing the ulcer containing bacteria by inhibiting their growth. Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice is available in the form of candy and can be consumed once the pain starts. Supplements too are available in the market. Not more than 2 ounces of Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice should be consumed in a day as they can cause fluctuation in blood pressure and lead to heart diseases. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

I am suffering from pain in region including lower abdomen and scrotal sac I think it might be orchitis but I'm not sure. Pain occurs suddenly and is sharp in nature. History of present illness is past 3 months as pain occurs suddenly no fixed time. I had my USG OF ABDOMEN DONE. IT WAS NORMAL. I also fear of it to be hernia? But actually what it is and proper treatment for it.

May be a simple pull on the testis during some inadvertant jump of vehicle over some speed breaker or a pothole on the road, because your USG is reportedly normal ( ruling out a ureteric stone, which could cause a raditing pain in lower abdomen to scrotal sac ), and you are not complaining of burning or obstructed urination hence less likely to be due to bladder infection. Try to wear a लंगोट to support the testis for 15 days and drive cautiously in rough roads. I hope it will subside after that.

Avoid late night snacks .Elevate the head end of bed by 6-8 inches. Sleep in left lateral position. HOME REMEDIES:.Dried ginger ,dried fennel or Ripened guava can speed up digestion of food  -Antacids: like SUCRAMAL may give relief.  -For severe cases,tablet Rabicip-D.is taken once/twice daily before meals as these reduce acid production in the stomach thereby decreasing burping.

Hello, I am giving you some tips to prevent constipation: 1. Take 6-8 glass of water in a day 2. Regular physical activity keeping mobile and active will greatly reduce your risk of getting constipation. Ideally do at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week. 3.
