From last night I have liver pain. What should I do now? Is this caused for my acidity?
It could be due to gastritis, gall stones or liver enlargement. Take antacid tablet 1 before breakfast. Get your ultrasound upper abdomen done to find out the cause and treat accordingly. Hope I answered your query.

I am 56 years old and in year 2007 I have gall stone major operation done. I need advice of ideal food and medicines to fit healthy. Can I take some sort of non veg food like fish?

After the removal of the gallbladder, you may experience diarrhea, which can improve over time or last for years, Certain foods may worsen your condition so you need to be aware of what foods are less likely to aggravate your system. Low Fat Foods Limit unhealthy food .Although the gallbladder may not be essential, it does play an important role in the digestion process, especially the digestion of fat. The gallbladder stores and release bile, which is a substance the body uses to process fat. After gallbladder removal, bile still flows from the liver into the intestines but in a more sporadic way, which can also causes discomfort after eating a particularly fatty meal. Avoid fatty foods, including dairy products because they can worsen diarrhea. Avoid fatty foods for a while after surgery and reintroduce them to the diet slowly over time. High Fiber Foods Fresh fruits and vegetables Eating more foods that are high in fiber, like brown rice and wholemeal bread, can help to make stools more firm,. Increasing your daily fiber intake gradually and include foods like fruits, vegetables, lentils and beans, in addition to whole grains. Eating smaller meals, more frequently, and evenly spaced throughout the day can also improve your digestion process. Furthermore, ensuring that you consume at least four servings of fruits and vegetables and four servings of breads and cereals daily is highly recommended especially after surgery. Another benefit of including foods that are high in fiber is that it can improve the movement of food through your digestive system and help to reduce bloating. Caffeine Free, Low Sugar Foods and Probiotics Limit caffeine. It is important to limit foods that can make diarrhea worse, like caffeine containing drinks and very sweet foods or drinks. Caffeine has a stimulating effect on your body. It kicks all your body systems into high gear, including digestion and these effects can exacerbate diarrhea. Abstain from coffee and tea altogether. Caffeine is also commonly found in sodas and chocolates and these foods should also be avoided.

There are multiple disorders which might produce the above mentioned symptoms, it could be Fissure/coccydynia or even a pilonidal sinus. It is suggested to get clinically examined by a surgeon for a confirmed diagnosis and therapy for the same. However though the few symptoms which you have mentioned are not alarming.

Last week I was operated for stones in gallbladder. Now I do not have gall bladder. What precautions do I need to take care of.

DRCH, BHMS
Homeopath, Bareilly
The bile secreted in gall bladder helps in digestion of fat. Since you lack gall bladder so you should avoid the oily food. You should not eat junk food as it contain much amount of oil in it.

Some times for developing acidity, maintaining proper imings only not enough. That depends on the how your food intake, quality of food. Like is it spicy/oily/fast food/junk food/etc all try to maintain bland diet, with less oil& spices. Avoid taking outsided food, snacks, etc take minimum 3-4 litres of water daily. Taking atleast 1/2litre in morning with empty stomach will help alot in gneeral as cleanser for body. Try to take more fruits, dates, sprouts, millets. Diary products like milk, curd, butter milk. Do not drink water while eating, just before easting& immediatey after eating. There should be a ga[p of 1/2 hr minium before or after for break fast/ lunch/dinner. Try to take heavy break fast, medium as lunch & less as dinner. Try to avoid rice consumption in night. Do exercises regularly, like walking, jogging, gym, sports, whatever you can but regularly, practicing yoga. Mediatation/pranayama will five good results in keeping mind/body equilibrium. All the best. If still complaint is there, then you need to take medicines accordingly, but I feel you do not need rt now medicines now.
