I have blown air into my penis through my urethra into the urinary bladder. Do I need to worry about" air embolism"

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
Air embolism occurs when the air goes into the arteries which are closed loops. As the urinary bladder is an hollow cavity which opens outside directly so air goes out easily. So there is never occuring of air embolism in such case.

Sir, my sister 36yrs of age, is suffering from gas from past few years and recently she developed pain in her breast. What can be the cause and how to get cured. Please help.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Breast pain is a common problem if it occurs before periods, because it happens due to hormonal changes, however if the pain stays all through the month or if she can feel some lump/swelling then may need to do ultrasound examination of breasts. Wearing a well fitting bra may help. For medicine ask me in private question.

breast ka self examination kijiye, phir dekhiye koyi swellings ya ne ki gant jaise hai kya. agar swelling nahi to pani nikalneka lagatar hai ya dekhna. if you can give me the information i can suggest some solution. regarding breathing due blockage of one nostril its happening like this. it will be better if you can learn and practice the yoga method called as pranayama, it will give relief to you. meanwhile have steam inhalation and add some vicks vaporub to the boiling water and breath the steam atleast twice a day which will give relief. all the best

Before doing surgery I suggest you 3 homoeopathic medicines for you. Please take the medicines for a month and then let me know the result. Because following homoeopathic medicines removed gall stones to lot of my patients and made them happier because these medicines prevent them doing cholecystectomy. Homoeopathic medicines 1. Lycopodium 200-4 pills morning and night weekly one day (every monday) 2. Cholestrinum 6x tabs 4 tabs 3 times daily 3. Berberis vulgaris q 10 drops in quarter glass of water 3 times daily. Take above medicines for a month and do the usg of abdomen. Let me know the result.

I am 40 years age and have been diagnosed with Non Alcoholic Fatty liver Disease and the the gastroenterologist is giving me Heptral tablets after consuming the tablets I am feeling lot of drowsiness and body pain.

Your liver condition is not poor, these tablet last will help reduce damage, but the most important treatment for fatty liver is exercise and a diet change with reduced sugar, sweets and fat. If you have fat around your belly you will have to loose weight with diet and exercise. That is the only permanent solution. Once that happens you may not need any tablets.

I think I have developed an anal fissure because there is blood coming out while passing stool. Though its not paining but I need your kind advice how to treat it. May prescribe an ointment which is best.

General Surgeon, Pune
Mr. lybrate-user Follow Sitz bath, meaning sit in a tub of warm water. Put a few drops of Dettol in it. Relax and contract your anal sphincter for 15 mins. Repeat atleast 3 times a day. Show to a general surgeon and get examination done. He will advise you pain killer ointment and laxative which you can use to ease the pain. You can take high fiber diet like fresh fruits and leafy vegetables for making stools soft. Drink atleast 3 liters of water everyday. Avoid excess tea/coffee. Avoid red meat. Hope this helps,

Kidney stones are a very common health problem. They form from the chemicals in urine, such as uric acid, phosphorous, calcium and oxalic acid. Other common causes of kidney stones are excessive consumption of vitamin d, a mineral imbalance, dehydration, gout and an improper diet. The combination of lemon juice and olive oil is traditionally used as a home remedy to expel gallbladder stones but it can also be used to treat kidney stones. The citric acid present in lemons helps break down calcium-based kidney stones and stops further growth. 1. Take four tablespoons or a quarter cup of fresh lemon juice. 2. Add an equal amount of olive oil. 3. Drink this mixture followed by plenty of water. 4. Do this two to three times a day, up to three days. You need not continue this remedy if you pass the stones in a single dose. Any queries inform me.

I had a gall bladder stone few days back. And it is operated now. What precautions should I take regarding food intake?

M. Ch., FEBS, MBBS
Liver Transplant Surgeon, Delhi
Normally no precautions are required after gallbladder surgery. It might happen that you will feel bloated after certain food types, but it is not necessary & neither is specific. It varies from person to person. In case you feel so then avoid that particular food else no precautions ever.
