My wife is suffering from Plantar fasciitis She has gone through a lot of Physiotherapy but no improvement. Pain goes down as long as the physiotherapy effect is there. Now, Doctors have suggested Topaz Surgery. Just wanted to check how good is it? Any side effects? Will it come back again after the surgery. My wife is 50 years old.

Hello lybrate-user, Thank you for contacting me. In physiotherapy for planter fascitis, ultrasound with stretching is done. Some modification in shoes and inserts can help. If this is not helping her you can go for surgery. Your answers regarding surgery can be given by surgeon. I hope this will help you.

I have very much of back pain, I had stones in my kidneys, how can I get relief from this back pain?

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
I have very much of back pain, I had stones in my kidneys, how can I get relief from this back pain?
Hi lybrate-user, please get an ultrasound of abdomen. If the stones are large or causing obstruction (hydronephrosis), they can cause back pain. Then it will need treatment based on size and location. However, small 3 to 5 mm stones and non-obstructing stones usually do not cause back pain. In that case, you have to get evaluated and treated for other causes of back pain. The current options for kidney stones include medical therapy for small stones (< 5 mm), lithotripsy or flexible ureteroscopy with laser for medium sized stones and pcnl (percutaneous nephrolithotomy) for large stones. Wish you good health.

Dear lybrate-user, sitting for long duration is not a problem, not sitting in a correct posture causes pain, in back and legs, always sit straight and if possible take a break every 1 hr. For severe pain, you can get swd and inferential therapy as you are suffering it since 10 years.
