Please look into your daily routine- are you eating at the right time? hope you're not keeping hungry for long and then eating a lot? exercise helps to keep a check on your digestion and metabolism- so exercise regularly. Have lots of water and avoid having tea and/ or coffe on empty stomach. When you don't have time for proper meals, avoid snacking on junk food, have friuts instead. For forgetfulness- maintain a list of things you have to do - that will help you be more organizped.

Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.

Last week I undergone surgery ,thrombosed extended pile.I discharged from hospital next day.Prescriptionmedicines ,monocef ,smith cream,duphalac oral solution ,liquid paraffin I.P used.Since 3 days some seepage from my anus orange colour with smell is coming.Surgery part also not healed. Very inconvenient to me.Anus also pain around while passing stool.

Dear , This a common aftermath of surgery for prolapsed thrombosed piles. Some discharge is routine and so is pain. That will go away in due course of time. So is the case with healing. Raw area will not heal in weeks time, probably it will take 4-6 weeks depending upon the size of raw area if open surgery is done. If the discharge is foul smeling then probably you need to change antibiotics. On the whole you have nothing to worry about. Dr. Kiran Mehta.

It seems you have stomach infection. First of all, take some antacids and emetics, then some antibiotics. Please keep eating liquid or semi solid foods to avoid weakness. Drink lots of water.
