Angioplasty not recommended by doctor as heart cell dead.
Is it OK to survive without risk on medicines.
Dear Lybrateuser, - Do follow the advise of your cardiologist as he is the best person to diagnose & treat your problem after knowing the overall picture - you have to be monitored regularly for your cardiac status if you have to survive on medication & surgery is not advisable - lead a heart healthy lifestyle which includes a well balanced diet with more of fruits & vegetables, do regular exercise for 30-40 min including light yoga & meditation for 10-15 min daily in the morning - have a restful sleep for 7-8 hrs at night as its the best stress buster for the body - take your medication on time, get regular checkups & follow your doctors advise.

Hello, I have piles .Which treatment is good for complete cure without any drawback to my human body.

Hello, I have piles .Which treatment is good for complete cure without any drawback to my human body.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hemorrhoids (piles), a fairly common and a recurring condition. If not very troublesome, with very few symptoms and hardly any bleeding, then conservative measures like less spicy diet, increased intake of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits and plenty of fluids as well as having healthy bowel habits are helpful. However, if there is more irritation and bleeding then surgery is a better option. Now a days laser surgery is considered a more suitable method. But even with surgery too the condition can come back may be after a few years. Thanks.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I have seen your question today itself and now it is further 12 days since you asked it, so do you still have any issues with your ankle? soft tissue injuries take around 3-4 weeks to heal well if adequate management is done from initial stages. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Sir I am of 24 years old student. Everything is good about me but I am in a stage of extreme libidinous, I really feel sorry abt it but I can't control my desire. I come to that stage when she come infront of me. I try to control myself but can't. It hampers my study critically. Pls suggest me.

I don't know who you are talking about when you say, 'when she come in front of me'. If you lose control are you suggesting that you act out sexually in the open?! All this is happening because of your indulging in those thoughts. These thoughts then feed into an impulse where you lose control. You must channelize your sexual energy with healthy sporting activities and exercise. You must meet your girlfriend in front of other people to let the social control take over your feelings. You must also learn to respect girls and not see them as sexual objects. A good sex education from a sexologist or counselor will certainly help you to see the different dimensions of sex and sexuality. In late adolescence you would have gone through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone and I believe that you have not developed sufficient control and learnt how to harness this very important drive to conform to social norms. A good education will certainly help you.

Hello- Yes Epididymitis can be cured permanently with the help of ayurveda. Ayurveda not only provides medications, but also modifies the diet schedule and daily routine which plays a major role in avoiding its recurrence. Eg. Intake of spicy diet, late night work out, over masturbation etc affects testicular function specially in the case of epididymitis, this is why you are facing pain even after the medicinal treatment.

I am aged 70 heart patient having piles, I am taking nitrocontine, cardivas 6. 25, etc. Can I operate the pile ?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Dear. I think you are worried about your cardiac risk in your surgery. For most surgeries to assess cardiac risk we use revised cardiac risk scores. You can read about it. Besides that we also use the following points. Can you walk two blocks or 1 flight of stairs without having breathing difficulty? are you on aspirin? do you have chest pain or any ecg abnormalities? is your serum creatinine levels increased? are you a diabetic on insulin? do you have any history of stroke? but by large piles operation is usually not a major surgery please and the risk of having any significant cardiac complications will be low. Your anesthetist will be able to guide you better with your pre op check up.
