Hello lybrate-user lovely report. Congratulations. Hopefully a partial Nephrectomy has been done saving the rest of the kidney. This report suggests you have a low risk less aggressive tumor although Lymphovascular invasion may signify some nodal Mets. Just keep a good follow up every 6 months with USG abdo pelvis for the next 3 years Regards.

Dear Lybrate user The common cause of muscle twitching include the following:  Twitching can occur after physical activity because lactic acid accumulates in the muscles used during exercise. It most often affects the arms, legs, and back. Muscle twitches caused by stress and anxiety are often called “nervous ticks. If the twitching during sleep occurs due to medication or taking alcohol, simply changing your bedtime routine can help.  Practicing yoga and meditation helps combat stress-related twitching. In order to avoid twitching from dehydration, ensure to limit consumption of coffee, soda, and beer. If the cause is a vitamin deficiency, vitamin supplements to replenish the supply of minerals and vitamins can alleviate symptoms.  Consult a doctor before taking vitamin supplements to identify the deficiency.  A good sleep at night can recharge the body for the next day. Keep yourself warm when you sleep. Call back for more details.

Kidney Transplant - 5 Things About it !

Kidney Transplant - 5 Things About it !

A kidney transplant is a procedure that employs an operation to transplant properly functioning kidney in the body. The main job of the kidneys is to remove the excess waste from a person’s body with the help of a filtration process. When the kidneys stop filtering the toxins properly, they become diseased as harmful waste products and toxins begin to accumulate in the body. Following this, the patient has to go through treatment measures like dialysis or kidney transplant.

Read on to know the five things you should keep in mind about a kidney transplant.

  1. Treatment: Transplant is one of the best ways to treat chronic kidney disease stage-V, until unless it is contraindicated. Life becomes near normal after transplant, though there is a possibility of rejection of transplant kidney. Patient has to take immunosuppressive medication life long. 
  2. Medication: Medications are mainly for:
    1. To prevent rejection: Patient takes immunosuppressive medications life long.
    2. Prevention of infection: Patient has to take care all the measures to prevent infections as they are more prone to infections.
    3. Other medication: To control diabetes, HTN etc. 
  3. Family Only: The donors are from family or emotionally related or cadavers (after brain death). HLA-matched donors are better because of less chances of rejections and first reduction of immunosuppressive. 
  4. Doing Your Part: Once transplant is done - patient becomes normal and he/she lives a normal life. However, they have to take regular medications and to protect themselves from various infection. 
  5. End Stage Renal Diseases: These diseases includes diabetes mellitus, HTN, polycystic kidney disease, chronic glomerulonephritis or interstitial nephritis etc.

Consult a Nephrologist before going for renal transplant for detailed check up or line of action.

Hi I am often suffering from urinary infection accompanied by sudden fever. I am regularly taking mortifer and tamcotin tablets. Yet the problem persists. I am diabetic to. Please advice for cure. I am 70 years old.

Dear , again first and foremost is to control diabetes very strictly and proper antibiotics. If the problem still persists then confirm or rule out urinary obstruc by usg and uroflowmetry. Even After ruling out obstruction and controlling diabetes then it is very likely that it is due to inadequately treated uti in the form of drug, dosage, duration and mode of taking medicines like with milk or after food or empty stomach. To cut the matter short you may consult urologist of repute. Dr. Kiran Mehta.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain.

Hello welcome to lybrate. Normal intake needed for an adult is about 8-10 glasses liquids per day. If you're passing urine frequently, you need to get tested and according to the reports, treatment should cure you of your problem. But avoiding drinking in minimal needs will lead to dehydration, which can cause complications. You are welcome to contact me for expert treatment as an urologist.
