Dear Give your father a purgatve. Give 30 to 50 ml of castor oil. It will flush out his system and clean the residual junk in the belly causing bloating and gas. Drink plenty of warm/hot water to support the system. Regards regards.

Try bland diet without much oil/ spices/ pickles/ papad. Avoid tea /coffee. Take fresh juice and avoid packed juices which contain preservatives. Eat breakfast/lunch/ dinner at regular time. Tension produce more acid in stomach. Take cold milk. Make reclining bed (head end of bed raised to 30 degree by placing blanket. Sleep on your left side. Acid will not regurgitate to your food pipe.

Sir I had a problem of annal fissure since 1 year AND my anal sphincter is very tight.

General Surgeon, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user, thanks for your query. Anal fissure is a painful and often recurring problem. An examination needs to be done to assess status and tightness of the sphincter and accordingly medications will be prescribed, if it is too tight than you might as well go for surgery. As of now you may start by increasing intake of salads and green leafy vegetables so that your stool remains soft, you may also take sitz bath by sitting in a tub filled with lukewarm water which will help in relieving pain.

फैटी लीवर अपने आप भी ठीक हो जाता है फिर भी सावधानी के लिए बहुत से विकल्प उपलब्ध हैं । यदि समस्या गंभीर नहीं है तो एमीलक्योर भी ले सकते हैं ।

I am 28 years male I have been suffering from gargling sound in my stomach with stomach upset for almost 2 months, which I was not understanding why it is happening. Initially I had bleeding in my stool as I have a lump around my anus which indicate piles but not sure whether bleeding come, because of piles or anything else as I had lots of spice food consistently 2 days before of this problem and started bleeding for another 2 days and then go away. And I have chronic constipation problem and I was using isabghol to cure my constipation which really helped to cure it. But since the time this gargling sound started in my stomach I started to worry more and I used so many medicine prescribed by Dr. but did not work.. So Dr. prescribed me to start Isabghol again. And I started to use isabghol which helped passing stool very smoothly, but still gargling sound was coming from stomach and after couple of days I realized I have started loose motion with fluffy/mushy soft stool and feeling weak/weight loss because of taking extra fiber. And yesterday I decided to take Norflox TZ which I usually take since my childhood to cure loose motion and thanks to God I observed its relaxed me, But I just wanted to know can I take Norflox TZ with Neksium 40 and normaxin RT which was recently prescribed by my Dr. to cure acid reflux and stomach ache.

I am 30 years old and suffering from very law pain in my chest. Some time it occure in right and some time in left and even below the hand in my chest in both sides. My coluige told me that it happened from acidity. I take a tablet of acidity and it relaxed me while. Now what can I do.

M.S. Genral
General Surgeon, Pune
Its risky to self drug -as its chest pain going below that hand. Be serious about your problem. How frequently you get this problem? whats about tobacco-tea-alchohol habit/and spicy diet and its frequency? besides this more info is needed over next 2-3 interactions-your problem needs to be investigated. So please mail to my inbox at my lybrate account. Act fast. It may be heart pain-one does not know? why take risk-you are 30 and chest pain is worry some. Thanks.
