Hi Mr. Sunny Your son is suffering from problem of improper assimilation of food due to gastro-intestinal problems. And this is responsible for his frequent stools because the stomach and intestines are not able digest and assimilate the food properly leading to weakness and all associated problems. As per my experience these children are usually physically lazy and mentally irritable but variations might occur. Kidney stones are not at all responsible for his problems. Treatment of this problem is possible with holistic homoeopathic medicines and after treating many cases I can tell you that it usually takes 3-4 mnths for the complete cure of problem and improvement is usually seen in first 15 days itself. You need to consult a good homoeopath for this or you can consult me over here or on person as you are in Delhi itself.

There is no need to go for fb removal. You have to treat prostate first. You can take a trial of urimax-d for few days if your cardiologist allow you. Or you can get turp done after holding aspirin and clopidogrel for few days. For gb polyp you have to get usg abdomen done regularly at every 3-6 mnths and if size increases upto 10 mm or it increases in number (more than 3) then laproscopic removal should be planned.

Dear user. The small stones in kidney are ok and should pass out by themselves. However you have not mentioned anything about your symptoms. I believe there is another stone in ureter that is not seen on usg and might be causing pain. Proper evaluation needs to be done to find that stone and treat accordingly.

I am 78 years old. I have undergone spleenoctomy for ITP in 187 I have taken steroids for few months before & few months after spleenoctomy as platelet count had not improved after spleenactomy. I am having border line hypertension & taking regular medication for it apart from Pentid 88 for lifetime prescribed by doctor after spllenactomy. My kidney functions are also declined & I was dignosised & treated kidney failure. Though the medications were stopped after improvement in blood urea & blood creatinine counts had come to normal level. However I am on strict diet of of total avoidance of non veg food, sprouted beens all pulses, banana, tender coconut all type of painkillers etc. I am also suffering from UTI & taking treatment for the same. I have tested my bone density which is -2. I am taking regular exercise of walking & some yogasanas However since last one year I am having severe pains in my hip joints & pelvic regions while walking & in the morning after rising from bed which are increasing day by day. I cannot think of any surgery due to very low platelet count of upto 50000 only. I am afraid whether I may be forced to stop walking exercise after few days & will not be able to maintain my health. IOs it possible for me to walk without pains without joint replacement surgery.
