Greetings!

I am Dr. Devesh and I would like to speak to you about waist pain. Waist pain is a very common disease these days. Earlier, we used to come across cases of waist pain in patients aged 40+ but these days, even 20 years old are affected by this problem. There are multiple causes of this disease and one of the major reason for the increment in such cases is our unhealthy lifestyle. It is the major cause of waist pain among the youngsters. Talking about multiple causes - one of the biggest reason is distorted daily routine, causing the imbalance in your circadian rhythm. Also, the usual posture of sleeping and sitting is hugely distorted and prolonged sitting sessions even in the correct posture is damaging to your body. An accidental damage to your bone due to some previous injury, you can also face waist pain in that case. In case, your cancer has reached to your spine, or the bones of your waist which has formed any tumour/lump in the neurons concerning the lower portion of your body, you can also face waist pain in such cases. Your waist pain is not a disease but a full syndrome. There are so many health issues related to this syndrome that it needs proper diagnosis and clinical evaluation with the help of MRI. It was impossible to manage your waist pain without a proper evaluation of the symptoms.

Waist pain related with the distorted lifestyle is mostly treated with a change to proper lifestyle, rest and improvements in the sitting, lying and walking posture, which leads to full recovery in 80% of the cases. But the remaining 20% cases are mostly treated with drug therapy and in severe cases, we opt for surgical treatments. In the routine degenerative disease of the spine, what we refer to as Spondylitis - in which the spinal vertebrae - wait, I'll show you - in this model, the middle disc gets distorted outwards which leads to the increase in pressure of nearby neurons and veins. This pressure in the vein supplying to the lower portion also transfers pain to that portion and that is referred to as ‘Referred Pain’. It is very important to know about the presentation in the case of waist pain - the presentation is concerned with the pain in the waist and the portion of the referred pain. The referred pain is transferred in the fixed dermatomal pattern, hence dermato-neurological pattern examination is mandatory for all the spine patients.

This confirms our clinical diagnosis which gets double assured on the basis of CT and MRI scans, according to which further treatment is given to the patients. If we take a sample of 100 patients, then, 80 patients recover with normal symptomatic treatment in which the discs get inwards within 3-4 weeks and patients feel better with reduced pressure in their veins. The rest of the 20 cases are treated with the discectomy, in which the disc is surgically removed by cutting of through this vertebra. There is a classical pattern where this bone is cut through to remove the disc. Another pattern is the endoscopic pattern where the lamina and pedicle are cut through to remove the disc. Even after so many treatments available, prevention is always better than cure. You can easily prevent your waist pain with a healthy lifestyle, regulated weight in accordance to your height. Always go for a morning walk or any physical exercise which suits you - e.g. Yoga, aerobics, or even a visit to the gym where you're not doing any heaving weight exercise or any power requiring activity. Anything which doesn't exert weight on your spine and waist and is increasing your mobility is good for your body.

If you'll take care of all these important points along with the right posture of sitting, you'll hopefully delay your problem of waist pain. Eventually, it's normal to get affected with waist pain as it is a degenerative disease with age. The more you are accustomed to prevention, the longer your spine will stay protected.

Namaskar!

Mai Dr. Devesh, consultant surgical Neurology. Aaj apko kamar dard ke bare me btana chahta hun. Kamar dard aaj ke zamane me bhut hi common ho gya hai. Pehle iske lia 40 se upar ke marij aate the lein aaj 20 saal ke bache bhi is bimari se grasit hain. Kamar dard hone ke bhut sare karan hain. Iska karan ye hai hmari lifestyle. Hmari lifestyle bilkul bhi shi nhi hai. Bilkul bhi healthy nhi reh gyi hai. Jiski vjha se hum bhut hi kam umar me kamar dard se garasit ho jate hain. Kamar me dard hone ke bhut sare karan hain. Ek apka dincharya shi na hona, apka uthna, baithna, sone ka tarika galat hona. Dusra aap lambe samay tak baithe hue hain. Prolonged sitting is not good. Aap kbhi gir gye hai jis vjha se apki rid ki haddi me kisi trha ki koi chot aa gyi hai. Ya apka kisi trha ka cancer hai jo apki rid ki haddi me phuch gya hai. Ya kamar ki jo haddiyan hai or andar jo taar hai, usme kisi trha ki ganthe banti hain. Usme bhi kamar dard hota hai.

So, kamar dard is not a disease, it is a full syndrome. Iska bilkul ache se evaluation, along with MRI or x-ray ki help se proper diagnosis bhut jruri hai. Jyadatar 80% kamar dard ke patient apne aap thik ho jate hain with the routine treatment, proper rest, proper way in the sitting posture. Llekin jo bache hue 20% log hain usme utni sudhar nhi hoti. Or usme se bhi kuch logon ki final surgery krni pad jati hai. Jyadatar patients sirf dawa se hi thik ho jate hain. Jo degenerative spine or spondylitis bolte hain, sume hota kya hai ki rid ki haddi ki bich me jo disc hoti hai, ye fut ke bahar aa jati hai or jo aas pass ki nasen hoti hain unme dabav hone lgta hai. Is dabav ki vjha se hi, jis part ke pair ko supply kar rhi hogi, jhan niche ja rhi hogi, us hisse me dard jata hai. To kamar ke dard me ye janna jruri hai ki presentation kya hota hai. Dermato neurological examination is mandatory in all the spine patients.

Is se hume pta chalta hai ki clinical diagnosis kya hai. Agar is trha ke 100 mariz kia jaye jisme disc futti hai to usme se 80 logon ki disc, agle 3-4 hafton me ke andar apne aap kam ho jati hai or nus ka dabav khatam ho jata hai. Ye patient apne aap thik ho jate hain with normal treatment. Lekin bache hue jinme disc ka dabav bna rehta hai, usme disc ko nikalna pdta hai. Us surgery ko discectomy bolte hain. To piche se hum haddi ko katte hain or iske bhut sare tarike hain disc nikalne ke.

Dusra endoscopic tarika hota hai. Usme bhi hum ise thoda sa katte hue, andar jake ise nikalte hain. To ye sare tarike hain iske management ke . Ye to hui management ki baat. Prevention is always better than cure. To prevention ke toor pe apni lifestyle shi bnaye rkhen. Apna vajan control me rkhen apni height ke hisab se. Or morning walk ya koi bhi physical exercise jo apko suit krti hai like yoga, morning brisk walk, aerobics, regular gym hogya. But gym me koi bhi heavy weight ya power exercise nhi krni hai. Only jisme apka mobility jyada hai taki apki spine pe vjan na aaye. Ye sari baaton ka agar aap dhyan denge, hopefully apki problem delayed hoti jayegi. Aani sabko hai problem because these are degenerative spine. Umar ke sath spine ghista hi ghista hai. Lekin jistna aap ise ache se handle krege, apke spine ki life utni hi jyda hogi.

Brain Surgery - Can It Cause Amnesia?

Brain Surgery - Can It Cause Amnesia?

Often it has been observed in patients undergoing a brain surgery that their memory gets affected. The memory can sometimes be affected either by the tumor growing inside the brain or by the surgery for the removal of that tumor. Rather than the long-term memory, in the majority of the brain surgery cases, it is the short term memory that gets affected more noticeably. Further, sometimes, people have difficulties in making new memories after the brain surgery along with retrieving the old ones. Continue reading to know more about brain surgery and amnesia.

How is brain surgery connected to amnesia?
The presence of a tumor in the brain can affect one's memory in two different ways. Though not everyone suffers from it, there is a possibility that the treatment or the surgery often leads to memory difficulties and sometimes it's the location of the tumor in the brain that causes the memory damage. Sometimes, even radiations or chemotherapy sessions can also be responsible for amnesia. One must know that having a brain tumor or opting for a brain surgery doesn’t necessarily cause memory loss or amnesia for everyone. And those patients who do suffer from this, both the severity and symptoms of the memory loss vary from one to another.

Probable memory difficulties
Memory difficulties, also commonly referred to as amnesia, can be two different types, retrograde amnesia, and anterograde amnesia, irrespective of whether it is the result of the treatment or the location of the tumor. In case of retrograde amnesia, the memory loss occurs before undergoing a brain surgery, or sometimes even before developing the brain tumor. However, those who suffer from anterograde amnesia face difficulties in remembering their previous memories after the brain surgery is performed.


Coping with amnesia
Once the type of memory loss one is suffering from is identified, there are various ways and strategies to cope with amnesia, suggested by the doctors. Taking good care of one’s self, having the necessary amount of sleep along with a healthy diet helps one improve his or her capacity of recalling the forgotten memories in many cases.

 

Further, by adopting simple measures like maintaining a diary, following a routine and organizing one's medications with reminder notes can also help an amnesia patient in coping with the normal life situations. Minimizing the distractions and focusing on a single thing at a time can also be helpful in not only coping with it but also in improving the memory.

In case one displays signs of having a memory problem after a brain surgery, he or she should be immediately taken to a clinical psychologist or a neuropsychologist. Because it is with the help of this medical professional that severity of the amnesia that the person is suffering from and which part of memory has been affected can be determined, and the right ways of coping with the issue can be suggested. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

When Is Surgery Not An Option For Epilepsy?

When Is Surgery Not An Option For Epilepsy?

Living with epilepsy can be highly challenging. This is a medical condition that can be controlled with medications in most cases, but it might not be useful for all patients due to severe side effects. It is estimated that up to 30% people who have epilepsy face this issue, and in such cases, surgery might be considered as an option.

This condition typically results in seizures which is a result of sudden electrical activity in the brain. So, certain complicated epilepsy operations on the brain can help patients with their seizures and contain their symptoms.

The goal of epilepsy surgeries involves removing part of the brain that causes these seizures and disrupting parts of the nervous system in the brain that contribute to the same. The procedure also involves the installation of a device that helps control the side effects of epilepsy.

When is surgery not an option for epilepsy?
Doctors would accurately identify the part of the brain that is causing seizures as the first step. These parts are known in medical terms as the ‘seizure’ focus. This area should not be related critical functions of the brain like movement, sensation, and language involved – else surgery would not be possible.

Surgery is not viable when seizures are severe and impair bodily movement or if the patient has serious medical conditions (like cancer or heart diseases).

Common Surgery Options Available

  1. Lesionectomy: This is one of the most commonly used procedures. This form of surgery involves the surgeon removing brain lesions from the brain or areas of injury due to malformed blood vessels or tumors. These injuries can often cause seizures and epilepsy and can be treated effectively with lesionectomy.
  2. Lobe resection: This is another form of treatment which is possible only if the epilepsy is located in one of the four parts of the brain – the temporal lobe. It is quite common in younger people and can easily be treated by expert neurosurgeons by removing the brain tissues that are causing epilepsy.
  3. Multiple Subpial Transections: While the above methods involve cutting out brain tissues, sometimes such surgeries just might not be possible due to other complications. If the parts of the brain cannot be cut out, surgeons tend to adopt Multiple Subpial Transections. This procedure can help control seizures without requiring cutting out parts of the brain. Small intersections are made in the brain to disrupt the impulses from affected brain cells that cause seizures, and they do not affect normal brain activity. It helps leave all abilities intact in patients and aids in treatment very effectively.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
