What ...
Space between anus and vagina vary from person to person. In extreme cases anus opens into vagina only. And this doesn't happen suddenly. It is like that right from the birth. But she must keep the area clean. Wash the area at least twice daily. Itching is because of the bad hygiene in that area. So she should maintain a good hygiene in that area. If the itching continues, please don't hesitate to consult a surgeon (in person. Thanks and god bless.

Is there any laser treatment available instead of operation of gallbladder stone? If it is there how much it will cost?

Argon laser is just a tool which is used for liver surgery. Laser may be used during the gall bladder surgery, but it is not at all essential I understand the word'surgery' worries us all, the feeling which is quite natural. The worry about pain, the worry if something goes wrong etc. Let me assure you meticulous surgery is as painfree and as safe as we wish it should be. Problems with gall bladder surgery arise depending on the complcations of the disease process. All gall stone diseases are not the same. Sometimes due to excessive swelling or infection there could be adhesions to the surrounding structures. Or there could be stones which are passed in the duct ahead where they get impacted causing more complications. I understand your intentions when you think about lasers. You want experience to be safe, accurate and painfree. Believe me with cureent standards of both open and laparoscopic surgery, the experience is close to our desires.

Dear lybrate user, the most important thing is to check about pain occurs in which part of stomach. If its in upper part of abdomen & occurs after meals (as you said), then most likely its ac. Gastritis. Diet changes ll be helpful then. Avoid hot, spicy, too sour or too oily food. No lying down after meals. A glass of cold milk at night will be really helpful. If its in the lower part of abdomen & associated with burning urine, urinary tract is a possibility. Further details will need to be checked then. Hope it helps. Contact for any further query.

Hello I am 52 years old had a stone in my gall bladder. Is there any medicine to relive this problem.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

Yes, it can be removed if its silent does not mean it not causes any problem. It can be cured but not only with homeopathic medicines, you need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones via motion passage. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones.

In the majority of cases, piles resolve on their own without the need for any treatment. Treatments can help significantly reduce the discomfort and itching that many patients experience Diet - piles can be caused by too much straining when doing bowel movements, which is the result of constipation. A change in diet can help keep the stools regular and soft. This involves eating more fiber, such as fruit and vegetables, or switching your cereal breakfast to bran. Water is the best drink, and the patient may be advised to increase his/her water consumption. Some experts say too much caffeine is not good. Body weight - if the patient is obese, losing weight may help reduce the incidence and severity of hemorrhoids. Simple things you can do yourself to help prevent piles: Try not to strain when you go to the toilet Avoid laxatives Exercis take tab pilex 1tab tds, anovate cream locally inside anus, siltz bath [hot water in a tub, add kmno4 in it, sit 1/2 an hr in tub, it will help.Avoid spicy ,Drink 3- 4 Litre of Water Daily. welcome for further help.
