Hi Mr. Lybrate-user if you have undergone a gall bladder surgery that means you must be having this gastric trouble before the surgery also. I would suggest you to consult your problem in detail with a prominent homeopath to manage your post surgical troubles easiliy and without any side effects. If the surgical removal of gall bladder has been done then may be this problem may remain for long time. Homeopathic medicine will be able to manage your problems upto 95% and rest 5% depends on the type diet you take and how well you take care of your meals! feel free to consult in detail about what gastro problem you are having and give me a chance to help you get relief from all the problems.

My friend pinky is suffering from some stomach infection where there is an intestinal swelling and continuous stomach ache. We tried a few doctors and finally figured it out to be a severe colitis. Its taking too much of time. She is ill since past 45 days and still not really okay. She is right now unable to eat anything and so she's been fed with salines. How long does it take to cure this disease? What precautions are to be taken later? Please suggest need it urgent.

My has a gallbladder stone of 15 mm size us there any alternative remedy other than surgery.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Although the gallstones cannot be removed with medicines but being a homoeopath and with an experience of 20 years besides me,I have developed certain technical medicinal combinations with which our gallstones will be removed completely but the percentage of removal of gallstones is 70% ( means if out of 100 patients ,70 patients were removed of gallstones.)This is very high percentage and I am very much confident about it.consult me if you dont want to go for surgery.You will have to purchase a package of 2+2 months ( Including medicines )from me as we cant get these medicinal combinations in market.

From 3-4 days I was feeling my anus has tightened. There is no pain and bleeding during stool passing but little dis comfort .please help me.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Chennai
Since there is no pain or bleeding, anus tightness may be due to constipation, just try complete fibre diet for 1 week, avoid mutton, drink 3 litres of water everyday, even if you dint get rid of tightness, try cremaffin syrup night 15 ml before sleep.

Swallowing air is the most common reason for flatus. Try to give breast milk in sitting posture and do burping before you put on bed. If you are giving bottle feed, try to give with spoon. It solves your problem. Consult your pediatrician for learning art of burping.

Avoid outside 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.

Hello doctor
I have some personal issue with my health
I found the blood on seat during the potty.
Why?
Hi, Blood in motions is seen in piles, fissures, ulcerative colitis, colon cancer, etc. For diagnostic purpose, do a colonoscopy and consult a general surgeon for further management. Avoid hot and spicy food. Take some laxatives if you have constipation. Drink plenty of fluids and consume high fiber diet. Get treated at the earliest, otherwise, you will suffer from severe anaemia due to heavy blood loss.

First of all, you already know what is causing gastric problem so you can avoid spicy food as much as possible. Besides that take some antacid medication. If problem then can consult.
