Sexually transmitted disease can only be possibly when exposure is there, if the test is negative then it is nothing to worry but this does not ruled out the possibility of any infection if exposure is there, if you want to save from infection then be safe as long as coitus is concern.

Dear , as you had recurrent stone then you must have cause for stone formation which needs to detected and treated. Your present complains suggest that you have either infection for recurrent stone secondary to bladder outflow obstruction so get urine test and usg with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness on full bladder and post-void residual urine volume measurement and post them along with pictures here and we can take it from there.

Kidney Transplant Surgery and What You Should Know About It

Kidney Transplant Surgery and What You Should Know About It

Kidney transplant surgery is a surgical procedure where a healthy kidney is used to substitute a diseased one. The healthy kidney is obtained from either a deceased donor or a family member who has a good blood type match with the recipient. Usually, the recipient receives one kidney if the donor is alive and/or both the kidneys from a deceased donor.

Certain reasons for going for a kidney transplant surgery might include:
1. Kidney failure due to diabetes
2. Infections in the urinary tract
3. Autoimmune disorders such as lupus (an autoimmune disorder)
4. Polycystic kidney disorders
5. Obstructions in the kidney
6. Glomerulonephritis, where inflammation occurs in the kidney

Preparation for the surgery
Before the procedure, certain tests are carried out to determine your suitability for the procedure. The tests start with a psychological evaluation followed by blood tests and diagnostic tests to check for health problems. Once the tests are done, you will be placed on the waiting list for kidney recipients. Once the donor is available, you will be asked to get ready for the surgery.

Procedure: The procedure begins with you being administered general anesthesia. An incision is made in the lower part of the stomach, through which the donated kidney is inserted in the body. The next step involves attaching adjacent blood vessels to the kidney so that it has a proper supply of blood. Finally, the ureter of the kidney is linked with the bladder, facilitating normal disposal of bodily wastes. A plastic tube, known as a stent, is placed in the ureter to facilitate urine flow. This is later removed by a procedure called cystoscopy. Once the surgery is completed, the incision is closed by stitches.

Aftercare: After the procedure is completed, you will be given painkillers to ease the pain. Immunosuppressant medications will be prescribed to prevent your immune system from destroying the cells of the donated kidney. Usually, the duration of stay at the hospital post-surgery is about a week.

I had read that boiling parsley and coriander leaves and drinking the water helps flush kidneys. Is this correct?

It acts as an anti oxidant and there is no supporting evidence for the claim of doing kidney flushing

It is basically due to urinary tract infection and kidney stone. It can be prevented by drinking lots of water (8-10 glas) daily.

Diabetes can affect sex life. But kidney stone cannot affect sex life. Control sugar first and if the sex problem still persists, get a consultation with doctor.

I am 22 years old male. And my problem is for the last few days I always feel that some urine is stuck in my penis. It does not pain or burn when I urinate. I don't have any pain also. But I always feel that some urine is stuck. At night it does not disturb me ,I don't even get up once at night to urinate. But whenever I am awake I feel some urine is stuck and it can't get out. Quantity of urine is also fair amount. I checked my sugar level it is normal. Is it something to worry about?

I have been taking estranon tabs from past 3 months because I have polycystic ovary as well as left ovarian cyst. Past 2 months I had regular periods. But this time I had unprotected sex on 16th of August. I had taken estranon till 17th August. After that I was supposed to have periods today or yesterday. But I missed. Is it possible I may be pregnant.

MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Hello, best thing to know if you're pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. In cases of pcod, variations in period dates are normal. Wait for few more days and check by upt also. And always use protection. Because even if you don't conceive, the stress itself causes late periods. Drink lot of water and relax. Try to eat less or light, whichever possible, a little loss in water weight can get your periods. And it's too soon to get pregnancy symptoms so get upt (urine pregnancy test) done.

Kidney stones are one of the most painful disorders that affect humans. Kidney stones are solid masses of mineral salt deposits that are normally filtered through the kidney and emptied via urine. Urine has a natural substance, which dissolves these minerals, thereby preventing them into becoming solids or calculi. Sometimes due to dehydration, these salts don?t get dissolved and crystallization takes place. It grows large enough to obstruct the renal ducts or get stuck in the ureter, causing sharp and severe pain in the urinary tract. Untreated, kidney stones can cause renal failure. Basil leaves (Tulsi) are good for the overall health of kidney. Mix 1 teaspoon of juice from basil leaves with 1 teaspoon of honey and have it daily in the morning. You can also chew two to three basil leaves in order to remove the stones from the urinary tract. The water and potassium content that is present in watermelon is an essential ingredient for a healthy kidney. It helps in regulating and maintaining the level of acid present in the urine. Eating watermelon or drinking its juice everyday will help in flushing out stones from the kidney.
