Bilateral hydronephrosis kidney both Blood biochemistry S.G.P.T - 62. 1UL BILIRUBIN TOTAL -0.72 BILIRUBIN direct- 0.30 BILIRUBIN indirect-0.42 Please suggest me best advice.
I am a 24 yr. Old male and suffering from bed-wetting for the last 7/8 years (or more than that). Please suggest me some home remedy or other treatment for this. Below are some of the things which I have noticed and think these might be helpful to diagnose the actual problem - 1. Occurs during early morning time, more specifically in between 4. 00am to 6. 30am. 2. In 99% of the cases, I found myself sleeping in a" freefall" position (resting on stomach). 3. In most of the cases while wetting the bed, I was dreaming about something in sleep. 4. Normally my sleep is very much deep though I wake up within 7 or 7. 30 in the morning. 5. Normally I drink hardly 200ml of water prior 2 hours to sleep and I don't consume alcohol at all. 6. Most of the cases when bed-wetting happened, I was not going through any mental stress. 7. I couldn't find any unusual urination behaviour ever. Please let me know if you want some other inputs from me. Waiting for your reply. Thanks!
Kidney stones are not exactly stones, but hard deposits that are composed of minerals such as calcium or uric acid. These deposits start accumulating and over time enlarge to form obstructions within the urinary tract. Most kidney stones pass out on their own with little or no medication required, but in some cases, they have to be taken out through surgery. Let us now look at the surgery options available for the removal of kidney stones and why they are needed.
Need for surgery:
You might have to opt for a surgical procedure if you are in a lot of pain and if the stone is very large and cannot pass out on its own. Surgery will also be advised if the stone blocks the urinary tract hampering the free flow of urine. There are four types of surgical procedures that can be done for kidney stones.
- Shockwave lithotripsy
- Percutaneous nephrolithotomy
- Open surgery
Shock Wave Lithotripsy
This is the most common procedure that is performed for the removal of a kidney stone. It works best for small or medium stones. It is noninvasive - there are no cuts or scars made in your skin. In this procedure, the doctor after identifying the exact location of the stone sends out shock waves aimed at your kidneys. This dislodges the stone and breaks it into small pieces. This is a painless procedure, and no hospitalization is needed. You might have blood in the urine for a few days after the procedure, but it is considered normal and heals on its own. Check with your doctor in case you experience any complications
This procedure is recommended to treat stones in the kidneys and ureters. A thin, flexible scope is used to find and remove the stones. There are no cuts made, and you will be under anesthesia throughout the procedure. A thin scope is passed through your bladder and ureter to reach the kidney. Once the exact location of the stone is reached, the doctor uses a small basket to scoop out the stone. In case the stone is big, a laser is used to break the stones. This is procedure too does not require a hospital stay. Recovery time is short and you can get back to normal activities soon.
Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy or Percutaneous Nephrolithotripsy
This procedure is done when you have a large size stone and the other methods do not work. In this procedure, a small cut is made in the back, and a thin tube is inserted to reach the stone. Once it reaches the stone, high-frequency sound waves are used to break the stone. You will be under anesthesia throughout the procedure. This can be considered as the most successful types of procedure and is routinely used to remove large stones. Recovery time is short but a short stay in hospital of about a day will be required.
This procedure is rarely done nowadays as it involves the traditional method of surgery. However in some rare cases, when your stone is very large, and the other methods are not an option this approach is used. Hospitalization is required for this procedure and the recovery period usually takes between 4 to 6 weeks. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
