I'm a 19 year old boy with inguinal hernia. I'm 70 kgs heavy and 5'11" tall. Should I go for laparoscopy or open surgery?

Laparoscopy nowadays are found to be producing equally good results. But concerned surgeon is a better judge to decide.

1)Get a 2nd opinion about surgery,it can be done on patients who are fitted with stents by giving spinal anesthesia in place of GA,2) Constipation will make Hernia worse 3) with age there will be sagging of internal muscles and repair of tissue after operation will be delayed and sagging will lead to constipation followed by impacted stool ,followed by chronic intestinal obstruction 4) You are doing Yoga and Pranayam daily , it is good for entire body , get a CD/ watch TV programes to know more about yoga , 5)I can only suggest you Not to Do Asanas which increase pressure on abdomen 6) Eat foods rich in natural fibers like-every fruit! No juices.7)take a spoon of honey with warm water on empty stomach every morning on an empty stomach. 8) Do not become dependent on over the counter products for constipation, they can make hernia worse.9) take a decision and go for surgery ,10) Observe a fast at least once in a week with liquid diet only and no solid foods.11) all of the above should become your lifestyle modification. 12) do write back about progress of your case.

थायरॉइड की गाइड लाइन

M.Sc - Psychology, PGDEMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
थायरॉइड की गाइड लाइन




गले में मौजूद थायरॉइड ग्रंथि से संबंधित समस्या इन दिनों आम है। खासकर महिलाएं इसकी शिकार ज्यादा हैं। इससे निकलने वाले हॉर्मोन थायरॉक्सिन के सामान्य से कम या ज्यादा स्त्रावित होने पर कई समस्याएं उत्पन्न हो जाती हैं। जैसे वजन का कम या ज्यादा होना, बालों का झड़ना, त्वचा का रूखापन, कभी कब्ज व कभी दस्त, त्वचा का ठंडा व गर्म रहना, भूख ज्यादा लगना या खत्म हो जाना आदि। अगर आप भी हाइपर या हाइपो थायरॉइडिज्म के शिकार हैं तो कुछ घरेलू नुस्खों और शारीरिक व्यायाम से इस समस्या से काफी हद तक छुटकारा पा सकते हैं।

खाने के लिए

सिघांड़ा : यह कैल्शियम से लेकर आयोडीन तक की कमी को पूरा करता है और थॉयरॉक्सिन को नियंत्रित करता है। इसे चटनी, ज्यूस, सेककर, अचार, सब्जी, रोटी, खीर, हलवा, कच्चा व सिका हुआ आदि किसी भी रूप में खाया जा सकता है।

अनानास : गले के रोगों में अनानास का प्रयोग बहुत अच्छा रहता है। इसका प्रयोग चटनी, मुरब्बा, सलाद, ज्यूस, रायता के रूप में किया जाता हैै। इस बीमारी में आई सूजन को भी यह मिटाने में मदद करता है।

प्याज : गले का जमा कफ निकालने से लेकर खांसी, जुकाम, गला बैठना जैसे रोगों में प्याज की सब्जी, सलाद का प्रयोग लाभकारी है।
कमलककड़ी और कमल गट्टा : कमल की लकड़ी और बीज कैल्शियम और आयोडीन का प्रचुर स्त्रोत हैं।

गले की क्रियाएं

गर्दन को सांस छोड़ते हुए नीचे लाना, सांस लेकर पीछे ले जाना और इसी तरह दाईं और बाईं तरफ लाकर गोल-गोल घुमाना।
उज्जयी प्राणायाम : जीभ को अंदर से मोड़कर तालू पर लगाएं और गले को आवाज प्रभाव देते हुए नाक से सांस खीचें। ऎसा पांच से 10 बार करें।

योगासन

सर्वांगासन : सर्वांगासन थायरॉइड क्रिया के लिए बहुत लाभकारी है। जमीन पर पीठ केवल लेटकर दोनों पैरों को ऊपर उठाकर कुछ समय के लिए रोकना है।

सिंहासन : कागासन स्थिति में बैठ कर सिंह की तरह दहाड़ करके आवाज करें।

गले की लपेट

गले पर हल्का सा तेल लगाकर गीला कपड़ा बांधें और उसके ऊपर मफलर या कोई ऊनी कपड़ा बांधें।
परहेज : इस बीमारी में सोयाबीन ओर केला का सेवन निषेध है।

My wife complained of painless blood in stool in june 2013. A colonoscopy with biopsy suggested chron's disease. Since then she was prescribed mesacol 400 mg thrice daily. However she took only 1 tablet per day for 2 years and that kept the problem in check. She got pregnant on september 2015 and was off mesacol for the duration of pregnancy. She delivered our baby via c section on june 2016 and since then was complaining of lose motion. She did not resume mesacol fearing interference with lactation. After 1 month of lose motion she started complaining of unbearable abdominal pain. We saw a gastroenterologist who suggested a few tests- USG whole abdomen, blood tests, fecal calprotectin and endoscopy (ugi, lgi and capsule). We did all the tests except endoscopy. Usg whole abdomen revealed nothing but fatty liver, blood test revealed high eosinophil and fecal calprotectin was 206. She was prescribed mesacol od 1.2 g twice daily and probiotics which she is taking now and has no problems now. My question is are all 3 types of endoscopy needed? What should be my future course of action?

Upper, lower and capsule endoscopy, each has got its limitations. In upper and lower gastro intestinal endoscopy you cannot reach beyond a point and to visualize the small intestine beyond duodenum and jejunum, one needs the capsule which independently traverses the course of tract giving imaging signals of the interior of the small intestine. Now that she is not having any complaint on mesacol 1.2 gm bd, you don't need to do much. Calprotectin at 206 (ug/gm or mg/ kg of faeces) is higher than normal consideration but it is a general marker only to suggest ibd (inflammatory bowel disease)

Hello, shortage of Iodine in diet of the mother affects infants and might carry thyroidism from birth. Yet, nothing is to be worried about, thyroidism is a daily go of life ,nowadays. She should follow the underlying natural norms to remain fit. Should maintain Iodine in diet. Go for meditation to reduce stress in order to nourish endocrine glands to condition thyroid. Tk, plenty of water to hydrate her body. Tk, Homoeopathic medicine"@.Thyroidinum 30-6 pills, thrice. Avoid, junk food, Tk, care.

yes, it has to be taken throughout. But it's dose keep on Changing. At times you get very low value of TSH and land up with hyperthyroidism, that is the only thing which should be avoided. For this continous monitoring is required.. atleast once In three months. Otherwise there is no harm to take it lifelong.

Meri wife ke gallbladder me 10 mm ka stone ha operation ke bina stone remove kiya ja sakta h kya.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
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. One can avoid formation of gall stones by just avoiding fatty food, junk foods and going behind unhealthy diet. To cure it naturally with medicines only one can just take our medicines which are combination of herbal and homeo medicines. Just take our medicines for some time and stones will be expelled also thereafter that stent can also be removed.

Hello, If weight gain is occurring inspite of treatment for hypothyroidism with levothyroxine means dosage not adequate. While on treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms and succeed in weight reduction. You have not mentioned either the dosage being taken or the TSH level. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism can also cause muscle and joint painstoo. So please check TSH levels and see that those are maintained in the range mentioned above. Thanks.

THYROID DISORDERS INCREASING HEALTH CONCERN
**************************************************************************
About thyroid gland
Low functioning thyroid is a new epidemic of the society affecting more than 3% of people. If thyroid function is low, it causes weight gain, loss of energy, cold intolerance and menstrual irregularities in women.
All people who are aged 50 and above should have their thyroid profile (TSH test) done to look for thyroid deficiency.
In younger people, or in cases of infertility, menstrual irregularity, pregnancy, weight gain, one should check for thyroid deficiency.
Iodized salt should be used to prevent thyroid deficiency.
Non–iodized salt is only used in two conditions: firstly in patient with thyroid inflammation and secondly, while doing Jalneti in naturopathy, a yoga–related nasal wash technique.
In pregnancy, even mild thyroid deficiency can affect the growth of fetus hence dose requirement of thyroid medicine is much higher in pregnancy than in non–pregnancy.
In the elderly, the dose of thyroid medicine to be started is always low as compared to one in the adults.
If thyroid deficiency is untreated, osteoporosis (thickening of bone) and/or atrial fibrillation (irregular and fast heart rate) may result. Osteoporosis can cause recurrent fractures and atrial fibrillation may cause brain paralysis.
In Allopathic medicine, thyroid deficiency is treated by synthetic T4 hormone replacement. In TFSP, thyroid extracts are available, which contain both T4 and T3 potential drugs.
In Ayurveda, thyroid stimulant drugs are available but they are effective only if some amount of thyroid gland is available.
As per Ayurveda, eating soya and drinking water from copper vessel is good for thyroid.

Hi, the location of lump is important for diagnosis. In the neck area except thyroid, lymphnodes are also important. For perfect diagnosis, sonography is useful and if possible biopsy is last one.

Laparoscopic surgery for Gall Stones

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Delhi
Laparoscopic surgery for Gall Stones

What is laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopic surgery is the technique of performing surgery by making small cuts (5-10 mm usually) over the abdomen and inserting special instruments through them. Hence the name 'keyhole' surgery. The surgeon performs surgery using these special instruments, one of which is a camera while looking at the image on a screen.

The advantage of this procedure over traditional surgery is that since there is the absence of a large incision, pain is much less, recovery is faster, the hospital stay is less, complications are less.

On top of this, there is a cosmetic benefit of absence of scar!!

Nowadays, we perform almost all abdominal surgeries laparoscopically including those for appendicitis, gallstones, hernia, GERD (reflux disease), peptic ulcers, achalasia cardia, spleen removal, pancreatic surgery, liver surgery, surgery for cancers of stomach, food pipe (esophagus), small intestine and large intestine (colon and rectal cancers), hysterectomy (uterus removal) and nephrectomy (kidney removal).

In addition, we also perform specialised surgeries like those for morbid obesity laparoscopically. One of our award winning videos has been for sympathectomy for excessive sweating over palms, axilla and feet.

So, welcome to the world of Minimal Access Surgery.

Advantages of keyhole surgery:

Cosmetic
Minimal pain
Fast recovery
Shorter hospitalization
Faster return to daily routine
Earlier return to work
Less wound infection complications
Fewer chances of postoperative chest infection

My wife is suffering from Thyroid. which instructions should i follow? Please advice.
you can give diet for hypothyroidism to your wife. i.e. high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.
