Dear lybrateuser, - The pain could be due to muscular or other soft tissue abnormality - avoid exertion, lifting weight, bending till pain subsides - do hot fomentation of the area three times a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - take a pain relief tablet after meals if pain is more - do x- ray chest to rule out any other problem.

Asd needs to b operated. Its not a major open surgery. Doctor puts a catheter through femoral vein & introduces small balloon like device at asd site, once its in place balloon is inflated to close the asd. Your child will b fine.

I think you should talk to her or her friends and try to figure out the situation in the school. It is possible that she was scolded or she has witnessed someone else been scolded or physically beaten by the teacher. Please understand the situation from your child's perspective. You will have to convince her that you trust her and will support her in every situation. You can call her friends parents too. Once you understand it from the children's perspective, do not hesitate to approach the teacher or other school authorities/school counselor to seek solution. You will have to handle the situation very cautiously because if she does not let go of this fear at this age, it will affect not just her studies but her entire personality. All the best. Remember she needs all your love and trust.
