Suffering from fissures as told by doctors 3months. Got treated but last week blood drops started from stool. After doctor visit he told me I am suffering from piles and gave me medicine. But the problem is worsen I am suffering from itching and pain last 4 -6days. Itching is so bad it continues gor 3 -4hours after taking ceptil it stop for 2- 3 and again starts. Please I had also applied candid lotion but still itching is there. Is it fistula? As I have got hard round skin near anal.

Itching around anal area is because of poor hygiene due to micro leakages from the anal canal. Keep the area clean by washing it with plenty of water. Take sitz bath twice a day. Keep the area dry there after. You may do some perineal exercises as well. Maintain healthy bowels. Avoid constipation/loose motions. Take isabigole husk 3tsf daily with a glass of water. If it doesn't subside please consult some surgeon. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user, it may displease you to know that once a stone is formed and subsequently removed, there is always a chance of recurrence of stone formation as compared to a person without any history of stones. Such patients may be termed as recurrent stone formers, you should visit a urology or general surgery opd for the same, an ultrasound will be more than sufficient to detect any stones in the system. Moreover you should drink lots of water so that you pelvicalyceal system remains adequately flushed.

Dear Treasa. Thanks for the question. Acidity during pregnancy is common. Avoid fried, spicy, or rich (fatty) foods or any foods that seem to cause relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter and increase the risk of heartburn. Drink less while eating. Drinking large amounts while eating may increase the risk of acid reflux and heartburn. Take care

Hi lybrate-user, better than medicines in this time use natural methods. You should eat little in multiple breaks. Do regular walking. If not reduced use only tab. Pan d in early morning empty stomach, and syrup gelusil 10ml after food. Avoid spicy food and drink plenty of water. Avoid stress full life.

Blood is coming out through anus when I'm going for lavatory. There is no pain. What is the simple solution for anal fissure.

MS- General Surgery
General Surgeon, Nagpur
You are suffering from hemorrhoids. Thats the most common cause for bleeding while passing stools. However you need to see a doctor for the same to confirm it's nothing else. Hemorrhoids do not pain, anal fissure is associated with pain.

I have multiple stones in my gall bladder and the biggest size is 15.5 mm. Are there any medicines to cure it or do I have to go for a surgery. If surgery is the only solution then what kind of a surgery it requires. Will it be a laser? Ever since I got to know this I do not feel hungry and also I feel vomiting kinda lot of time. please suggest what should I do its been 3-4 days hardly I have done the ultrasound whole abdomen. I don't want to go for a painful surgery. I had thyroid test as well which is 5.7 but not taking any medicines as of now.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

It can be cured but not only with homeopathic medicines, you need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones via motion passage. 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. The safest and way that should be used to remove gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones.

HI Gastric dysfunction is one of the most common after effects of knee joint surgery due to lack of mobility for a long time. Allergic bronchitis and gastric problems both can be corrected by homoeopathic treatment. Kindly consult a good homoeopathic doctor nearby you. Homoeopathic treatment is quite beneficial in the cure of both your complaints. Kindly start with regular walk and have your meals regularly on time. During the attack of bronchitis; breathing exercise, properly ventilated room and prevention from exposure to smoke and pollen is required.

Minimally Invasive Coronary Bypass Surgery

M.B.B.S. , PG Diploma In Clinical Cardiology
Cardiologist, Delhi
Minimally Invasive Coronary Bypass Surgery

Mics cabg or micas stands for minimally invasive coronary artery surgery. It is a relatively new and advanced technique of performing coronary bypass for coronary artery disease. In this technique the heart is approached through the side of the left chest via a small 4cm incision. This cut is placed just under the nipple. The chest is entered between the ribs without cutting any bones and by splitting the muscle.

Similar to a regular heart surgery the operation is performed using all arteries or a combination of arteries and veins removed from the leg. The vessel from the leg in these operations is also removed endoscopically without cutting the skin over the leg. Highly advanced instrumentation and advanced techniques allow for the operation to be performed very safely.

Why mics cabg?

Mics cabg has several advantages over the traditional technique:


    First and foremost is the fact that no bones are cut. This has several advantages in reducing pain, retaining function and having a positive effect on breathing. Unlike traditional heart surgery return to normal life including driving or other activities is not disrupted and can be started almost immediately.
    Second, blood loss is almost negligible eliminating blood transfusion in most and eliminating blood borne infection.
    Third, all infections are reduced whether it be wound infections or post surgical lung infection. This makes the procedure ideal in diabetics and older patients who have poor resistance to infection.
    Fourth, the incision is so cosmetic and measures just 2 – 3 inches that it's practically impossible to tell that a heart operation has been done.
    Fifth, the procedure lasts only 4 days unlike the conventional heart surgery that takes 9 days.


All these benefits put together make for ultra short hospitalization and recovery. The best part is that all the blocks irrespective of their location in the heart can be bypassed in a safe and predictable manner.
