Bladder Meds @ Prostate Problems Hello all. I have talked to many of you and have answered some of your question. I had a Uro-lift back in April of this year. All is good and I am glad I had it done. A month ago I started some leaking. The doctor was thinking it was the stricture got damaged when I had the procedure.
The problem of an enlarged prostate or benign prostate hyperplasia is a very common occurrence as you grow older. It's known to strike men above the age of 50, with more than 50% of men after the age of 60, having this complaint.
Causes of enlarged prostate
A non-cancerous condition, enlarged prostate makes the passing of urine from the bladder through the urethra difficult. The multiplication of the prostate cells causes an enlargement of the gland, leading to a buildup of pressure on the urethra, affecting the discharge of urine from the body. The narrowing of the urethra, due to this benign condition, forces the bladder to contract more vigorously so as to push urine out of the body.
As time passes, the muscles of the bladder get significantly affected, causing them to become extremely sensitive, thicker and stronger. As a consequence, the bladder begins to contract, even if the amount of urine in the organ is negligible, causing episodes of frequent urination. Gradually, the bladder fails to completely empty itself of urine due to the constriction of the urethra. This can give rise to a number of health problems including the formation of bladder stones, urinary tract infections, blood in the urine and so on.
How can you identify the signs of the condition?
Signs of enlarged prostate are very easy to identify and include:
- A slow or weak urine flow
- Difficulty in initiating urination
- Instances of frequent urination
- A feeling of not completely emptying one's bladder
- Frequent urination during the night
- Exerting a lot to urinate
- Instances of dribbling
- Urgency to pass urine
- A feeling of urinating again minutes after doing so
- Urination that starts and stops
What is ECMO?
Like dialysis for unfunctional kidney, Ecmo for unfunctional lung.
Ecmo stands for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. It is a method of giving oxygen for the body when icu pateint lungs and/or heart are not able to supply oxygen on their own.
Why ICU pateint put on ECMO?
Doctors place ICU patients on ECMO when patients are not able to supply oxygen to the body.
When a patient’s lungs fail, he/she first is intubated (breathing tube) and hooked up to a ventilator (breathing machine).
However, sometimes lungs are so damaged that providing oxygen through intubation is not enough.
This is when doctors turn to v-v ecmo.
A heart can fail for many reasons including heart attack, pulmonary embolism, bad valve disease, or worsening heart failure. When a heart fails, doctors try to fix the underlying problem. They may also start medications (called ionotropes) to help improve the pump function of the heart. If medications are not enough, doctors will turn to v-a ecmo.
How long can someone stay on ecmo?
That is a complicated question. Due to the risks of ecmo discussed above, doctors try to keep patients on ecmo for as short a time as possible. Often patient will be on ecmo for several days up to 1-2 weeks. Every day, several blood and imaging tests are done to determine if a patient is ready to come off ecmo. As the technology of ecmo improves, hopefully side effects will decrease and patients can remain on ecmo for longer periods of time.
What is the difference between ecmo and a ventilator (breathing machine)?
Both ecmo and a ventilator aim to provide oxygen to the body when the patient’s own lungs and breathing are failing. The ventilator assists the patient’s own lungs by pushing oxygen with pressure into the lungs. Ecmo instead provides oxygen directly via a catheter placed in a patient’s vein or artery. We almost always try oxygenating a patient with a ventilator first. However, when a patient’s lungs are too sick for this, we turn to ecmo to assist in providing oxygen to the body. V-v ecmo provides oxygen through a vein. This blood then has to travel to the heart and be pumped around the rest of the body through arteries. Therefore, with v-v ecmo or with a ventilator, a patient must have a well-functioning heart to get the oxygen pumped throughout the body. V-a ecmo has the additional advantage of pumping blood directly to arteries. This “by-passes” the heart and is therefore the method of ecmo we use when a patient’s heart is failing.
Actually 2 months ago, my wife was getting blood in her urine 1 or 2 time and having constant pain in back sometimes and suffered from cough. Around 3 weeks ago she consulted a doctor and she gave her some medicine and said these symptoms are not good for your future. But after taking those medicine she is feeling ok now and nothing is happening now but cough is there. Can you tell me are these the symptoms of cancer? Or is she totally fine now.

What are the side effects of radiotherapy (IMRT) in prostate cancer? And how to do basic management after radiotherapy.
Colorectal cancer, as the name suggests is a condition where the uncontrolled and malignant cell growth may have its origin in the rectum or the colon. As per the WHO, the colorectal cancer is considered to be the second most common type of cancer, the symptoms of which include:
- Digestive problems.
- A person may complain of diarrhea and constipation.
- There may be passing of blood in the stool.
- Rapid and unexplained weight loss.
- Extreme fatigue, vomiting, abdominal pain.
- Bloated abdomen.
- In some cases, a person feels full, even though he or she has not eaten a single morsel in a long while.
- Colorectal cancer can also trigger iron deficiency in men and women (especially in women who had their menopause).
What causes colorectal cancer?
A myriad of factors may be responsible for triggering colorectal cancer, some of which may include
- Medical conditions such as obesity, cancer (mainly of the breast, uterus or ovary), ulcerative colitis, polyps (in the rectum or the colon) increase the chances of colorectal cancer.
- Unhealthy and poor diet rich in saturated fats, or proteins, particularly animal protein, can be quite risky
- A person having a family history of colorectal cancer is at a slightly higher risk.
- The condition is likely to affect aged people as well as those who are into heavy drinking and smoking.
Laparoscopy To Treat Colorectal Cancer:
When it comes to the treatment of colorectal cancer, laparoscopic surgery is what most doctors recommend. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that requires a small incision (not more than 1/2 an inch) as compared to the other open surgeries.
- The surgical procedure requires the surgeon to make about 3-4 small incisions.
- Small tubes (cannula) are then inserted into the abdomen through the incisions.
- Through the cannula, the surgeon passes carbon dioxide gas into the abdomen to inflate it.
- In this inflated state, the surgeon places a laparoscope into the abdomen through the incision to get a clearer picture of the affected organ (colon or rectum).
- A laparoscope is a useful instrument used in laparoscopy. It is a long and narrow tube that has a front camera (high resolution) and a high-intensity light that enables the surgeon to study the internal or diseased organs better.
- The incisions also enable the insertion of many other instruments that aid in the surgical process.
- The surgical instruments, including the cannula and the laparoscope, are then removed carefully.
- The incisions are then stitched and bandaged.
- General anesthesia is given to a patient undergoing a Laparoscopic surgery.
What makes the laparoscopic surgery such a popular choice is that there is minimal blood loss during the surgery.
- Further, a small incision minimizes the chances of an infection at the incision site to a great extent, ensuring a fast recovery.
- The surgery is also less time consuming with the patient requiring to spend a lesser time in the hospital.

Hello, everyone. I am Dr Komal, obstetrics and gynaecologist. I am presently working at JP Hospital, Noida. Today I will discuss with you about Cervical Cancer with my main focus on vaccine available for it.
As most of us are aware that it is the cancer of mouth of the Uterus. It is a most common cancer among females in our country. It affects approximately 1,22,000 females per year in our country and it is a leading cause of death due to cancer in our country. The most common age group affected is 55-59 years of age. But the recent trend is showing the difference towards the age group as well.
Pap smear is a screening procedure and it is offered to all the females from 25 years of the age group and it should be carried out after every 3 years till the 49 years of age. And after this, continue this after every 5 years till you come under 65-69 years of age.
What is the cause of cervical cancer?
You must be surprised to know that in 99% of the cases, human papillomavirus, a viral agent is the infected agent of this cancer. Only 1% of the cause is due to some other things. So, it is a viral infection that causes cancer.
As it is a viral infection, we have the vaccination in our country to fight against the cause of this disease. And the most common vaccine used is Gardasil. World Health Organisation recommends that the vaccine should be referred to all girls between the age of 9-13 years because of its high immunogenicity of this age group. THis vaccination can also be available to all the females till 45 years of age.
The only issue is that once you become sexually active, then the immunogenicity decreases. However, you must be offered and you should go ahead to take the vaccine.
Two is the second dose and that you receive after 2 months of the first dose. And six is the second dose which you receive after 6 months of the first dose.
What is the cost of the vaccine?
It costs about 2800-3000 per dose. There is no severe side effects and the most common being the injection related things.
What is the contra- indication?
There is no contra- indication. But the one important thing is that pregnant women are not recommended to take this. Once you become pregnant while taking this vaccine then you should definitely dose for the next time.
So, this vaccine is available to prevent cervical cancer in the body even in a very minute form.
Hope this video is helpful for you to get aware of cervical cancer which is killing women every day in our country.
Thank you so much.
