These type of complaints generally indicate hyperacidity, indigestion. U need to restrict bakery products, outside food, fried food. Have food that is rich in fibres, eat fruits(not juice). Daily brisk walk for about 1/2 an hour will ease ur complaints. Homoeopathy has much to offer u, for medicines, consult online.

Medical Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery

DNB, MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - Plastic Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi
Medical Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck surgery is a form of cosmetic surgery, which is used to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen as well as tighten the muscles in your abdominal regions. Similar to 'mommy makeovers' (a procedure applicable after pregnancy, which helps women restore their figure).

Tummy tuck surgery is used to help patients treat that loose and sagging skin who have experienced excessive weight loss within a relatively short period of time. Although, it is usually done for cosmetic reasons, it does provide a large number of medical benefits, such as:

1. Reduction in stress urinary incontinence: Stress Urinary incontinence is a bladder control problem that is characterized by involuntary urination because of exercises or normal bodily functions such as sneezing or coughing which might put pressure on the bladder. In some women, (SUI) can develop after a vaginal birth. The condition does not generally require a surgery. However, research has shown that in severe cases, abdominoplasty is helpful in patients who do not have a caesarean section. A slight bladder obstruction is made during the procedure using soft tissue which reduces the incontinence.

2. Better posture and improved abdominal tone: Strong muscles tend to become weak after multiple pregnancies and extreme weight loss. In these cases, diet and exercise are not enough. Abdominoplasty surgically removes excess fat and skin thereby, tightening weak muscles and flattening the abdomen. It is noticed that after the surgery, the patients develop an improved posture due to the tightened muscles supporting the spine. This helps in relieving a variety of back pains.

3. Correction of ventral hernia: Ventral Hernia is the bulging out of tissues through a defect, opening or past incisions within the wall muscles of the abdomen. In such a case, the surgeon may opt for Abdominoplasty to support the abdominal wall and prevent recurrences. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cosmetic-plastic-surgeon and ask a free question.

I have read somewhere that milk whose effect is acidic, to neutralise it body draws minerals specially calcium from bones which results in weak bones how far this is true? Also milk has tendency to form mucus resulting into strep throat. Is it true?

Milk does not draw calcium from body as it already has calcium in it and thats how the bones are formed of a new born baby who is entirely dependent on milk and other thing that it produces then yes it produces but this mucus is protective and protects us from getting mouth infections as milk is basically protein and gives us immunity to fight against the diseases.

I am 36 years male. Had protected sex 12 weeks back with un-known status lady, in last minute condom broke and I came out immediately and saw the semen on her thighs, she says she is clean. I was under anxiety and tremendous pressure, I met doctor after 3 days. He suggested PEp. Started PEP after 80 hours of my exposure and stopped after 3 days as I felt it has more side-effects. I was having GERD symptoms due to anxiety and took medicine for GERD (Nexpro). After that due to stress may be I had feeling of go to toilet (but did not go, symptoms like IBS). I used antibiotic (Rifaset) for 10 days (20 tablets). After 10 weeks of exposure (after 1 week usage of my antibiotic) I had mild rash at my back and it was painful. I did not used any medicine for rash and it went off after 10 days. I had following tests: 1. RNA PCR at 6 and 16 days after exposure - Negative 2. RNA PCR Quantitative at 16 days - below detectable level 3. Rapid test at 6 and 8 weeks after exposure- Negative 4. Duo test CMIA (p24 antigen and antibody) - Non-reactive 5. rapid test after 11 weeks (Tridot test) - Negative. Can you please suggest when to test next to make results conclusive and is my 3 days PEP course after 80 hours of exposure has any impact on seroconversion, Antibody detection or test results. I am planning for one more duo test tomorrow (after 84 days of exposure)

Because of this encounter you have developed severe anxiety, I guess there is no HIV in u, so stop worrying and carry on with your work. Still if the thoughts haunt u, consult a psychiatrist to remove the obsessive thoughts.

Limit the amount of white bread, sugar, meat, junk food and milk products (cheese, milk, butter, cream.) and increasing fresh fruits, veggies, water and fiber (beans, oats,) also yogurt really helps due to the probiotics. Maybe you could do a food diary for a period, eliminate a couple of items at a time and build up until you have added enough other of good items to make the stools loose. Oatmeal helps out tremendously. Figure out the diet and once you've added enough good things, slowly pull back on the laxatives and pay attention as you go. This could be a food allergy, do some research, usually its lactose (dairy), nuts, sugar, food coloring, preservatives. Try to avoid boxed and processed foods which have more preservatives, calories, fat, high carb. I hope some of this helps. In the mean time try (biochemic) biocombination numb 4 requires detailed questioning so as to ascertain your personality and to treat you symptomatically. Treatment is available, safe and without side effects in biochemic system of medication. Consult me in private.

Dear, with the details you have provided, I would say please avoid any fried foods that trigger gastritis and also avoid anything fattening as your liver cannot take it. Kindly include more fruits and vegetables. Protein in the form of dhals, pulses, cereals are fine. Include more water on a daily basis. All the best.

Hello, get your stool examination (r & m) and lft done to rule out the possibilities. Yes, improper digestion leads to nutritional deficiencies in our body which can cause symptoms related to it like head pain, back pain, cramps, etc. Medication: meantime, start with homoeopathic medicines - cincohna 30 and nux vomica 30 - both 3 times a day daily. Then share your reports with me (advise you accordingly).
