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.

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.

Coping with Peptic Ulcers

M.D.(A.M.), BAMS
General Physician, Gurgaon
Coping with Peptic Ulcers

A peptic ulcer is usually found in the duodenum, or the first part of the small intestine. These ulcers can also be found in the delicate stomach lining near this region. These are usually painful sores that are caused due to too much acid production in the stomach, as well as excessive smoking and alcohol consumption. The symptoms generally include heartburn, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and even blood discharge in stool and vomiting. So how can you treat these ulcers? Here's a short list of ways to do so.

- Medication: The most common way of treating peptic ulcers is to ingest proton pump inhibitors which can be prescribed by a general physician. These medicines will effectively stop the production of acid and reflux in the gastroesophageal band, so as to prevent the growth and production of such ulcers. Antibiotics can also help, especially in severe cases where there is a risk of infection due to the presence of these ulcers.

- Upper Endoscopy and Surgery: For severe cases where there is bleeding in the peptic ulcers, an upper endoscopy may also be conducted. This quick procedure can give relief from the bleeding. Also, many specialists might recommend surgery so as to treat an ulcer that has punched a hole in the stomach's wall, in which case the persistent bleeding cannot be stemmed even with an upper endoscopy.

- Lifestyle Choices: The presence of a peptic ulcer usually points to tobacco and alcohol abuse. If you happen to be over 50 years of age and are busy drinking copious amounts of alcohol every day and even chain smoking, then you may be at risk. It is best to stop such abuse by giving up smoking and drinking so as to ensure that the peptic ulcer can be treated and does not become a fatality. Also, drinking plenty of water and eating a proper balanced diet along with exercise are some of the best ways of treating these ulcers.

- Side Effects: Peptic ulcers may also arise as a side effect of having pain killers too frequently. So it is important to stay away from medication that gives rise to this kind of reaction in the body.

Managing and treating peptic ulcers is a matter of getting the right tests done for diagnosis before discussing further medication or surgery based treatment for the ulcer so that it does not pose any grave danger to the patient's body.

Usually flatulence is the result of low physical exertion, irregular diet, high fatty food, and mostly disturbed intestinal bacteria, So first try to make changes in your way of life.. and don't take it lightly as it is the key to healthy life irrespective of your daily schedule... If after all this you have complaints then first try homoeopathic medicine as it is safe and no complications..

If after meal you are getting too many burps say 8-10 and if it is chronic. What does it indicate and how it can be recovered?

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
It could be because of acidity. Try taking tablet pantop empty stomach in the morning for 10 days. If it improves its OK otherwise stop taking medicine. Get an ultrasound done , if it doesn't show any abnormality just relax. Take a good healthy diet with fruits and salads and plenty of water. Go for a morning walk. Do some yoga.
