Hi wear a knee brace for 8 weeks, avoid climbing. Do quadriceps drill after learning from a trained physiotherapist. Do not do any other exercise for six weeks. Use walking stick in opposite hand for 6 weeks to take weight off the operated knee consult your treating surgeon for further advise and precautions best wishes.

I have been diagnosed with BP last week with 170/120. My doctor suggested Amlong H 1 Tab (Amlodipine 5 MG Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 MG) in the morning and Amlong 5 mg 1 Tab (S-Amlodipine) in the night. Now my BP is under control. But the worst thing is my legs get swelling during the day and I am getting severe headache which I cannot tolerate. Kindly suggest the alternate medicine.

Hi . Sorry to hear that your mother has cml. It is a type of blood cancer that starts in certain blood-forming cells of the bone marrow. Here a large number of immature cells from the bone marrow circulate in the blood cause the disease. Treatment is generally good with tki's or tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Around 60-80% of patients live beyond five years with good treatment. Of course this depends on the stage of the cancer.

I have been feeling my body shaking/unsteady while I am sitting on chair or standing or walking constantly. But feel relaxed if I sit on floor leaning against something or lying in a cool place. It increases in heat atmospher and in empty stomach or any stress.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. These may be some kind of tremors or dystonia, the best way is to consult a neurophysician, maybe get some relevant investigations done and then management can proceed from there on. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Think of clearing your 'Aura' Energy space around you. Several times these kinds of pain could be due to energy disturbances in your auric space. Of course, consult the physician and rule out any pathological changes needing the attention. If all investigations are normal, you could work with Stress management correctly and you will find the difference.
