My mother is 52 years old. Four months back she diagnosed with obstructive jaundice. We got her to hospital and doctors placed PTBD. Lots of fluid was coming. But now there is no fluid coming from it. Apart from this she is getting fever with shivering every third or fourth day. We had some tests HIDA scan and PET scan in starting of the treatment. They all are negative. But she not getting any better and have loss weight and appetite. Doctors now stopped discussing about obstructive jaundice and saying her liver got infected upto 60% they are not giving any clear picture what the real condition is. Please if anyone here can tell if my mother can cure or not? Waiting for the answer.

Obstructive jaundice itself is a very sinister condition. Post PTBD fever & low output suggests infection (cholangitis/cholangiolar abscess) and blockage of the drains. This carries extreme risks to life. Am sure the patient must be in ICU, on advanced antibiotics and there must be some drowsiness and urine issues as well. I believe you must sit with the entire treating team and discuss things. Best luck.

I am suffering with gas problem. Which diet I have follow to prevent gas problem.

MBBS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kendujhar
I am suffering with gas problem. Which diet I have follow to prevent gas problem.
Hello, Thanks for your query on Lybrate "As" per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this - The ideal diet for bloating should avoid all gas-producing foods such as beans, legumes, vegetables such as sprouts, turnips, and cabbages, and fruits such as peaches, pears, and melons. Fizzy drinks should be avoided as well as should all food products made with artificial sweeteners as this can increase gas and bloating. Try and add ginger, peppermint, clove, and cinnamon into your diet as they act as natural remedies against bloating. Do follow lifestyle modifications like this -: 1) Try to avoid skipping meals or leaving large gaps between meals 2) Drink lots of water during the day[More than 10 glasses 3) Try to eat small meals and chew foods properly 4) Do not talk while eating as this increases air being swallowed into the stomach 5) Try to limit food products that contain wheat and milk 6) Antibiotics used to treat other ailments could also lead to bloating so try and avoid too much of them 7) Try to avoid heavy meals at night and try not to lie down soon after eating Hope that helps.
