We have specialized medicines for pain and infectious conditions. There will no such need to undergo surgery or operations.

I will suggest you to avoid surgery there is no need of it. 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. 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 gallstones is removing it naturally, not just remove gallstones from gallbladder but also remove the cause of gallstones. No matter how much stones are there in gallbladder they all will be removed using medicines and process we follow at SSOHM.

Does putting fingers or some type of obstacles in anal good for health or Good for gastric problems?

Does putting fingers or some type of obstacles in anal good for health or Good for gastric problems?
It's not good for health. Fingers and objects spread infections and minor trauma to anal canal which is niche for microbes.

Liver Transplant By A Living Donor - Understanding It In Detail!

M. Ch., FEBS, MBBS, MS - General Surgery
Liver Transplant Surgeon, Delhi
Liver Transplant By A Living Donor - Understanding It In Detail!

Living donor liver transplant is the procedure where a portion of the liver of a living donor is transplanted to one whose liver is damaged and beyond recovery. The source of graft liver can be from two sources namely from a deceased brain-dead donor or a Living-related donor and termed respectively as DDLT ( Deceased donor liver transplant) and LDLT ( Living Donor Liver Transplant) . 

In case of DDLT , the recipient name is registered in the NOTTO list , and whenever a suitable brain-dead donor is available the recipients are transplanted according to their position on NOTTO list. DDLT involves a longer waiting time before a deceased donor may become available which can be anywhere between a month to years . The recipient runs a risk of developing a fatal complications during the waiting period. In LDLT ( Living donor liver transplant) the graft liver is procured from a living donor who is related to recipient and agrees to donate a portion of his liver. After careful pre-operative evaluation of prospective donor nearly 60-70% of liver of donor is removed and transplanted into the recipient.

Due to the unique ability of human liver to regrow, within 6-12 weeks nearly 100% of previous liver volume is achieved. LDLT enjoys the benefits of a elective surgery done without any waiting time and delay. However both DDLT and LDLT have nearly 90% success rate and both the procedures have their own benefits and lacunaes. Also the decision to go for DDLT and LDLT may vary for any particular patient. 

Factor that makes living donors potent enough to donate part of their liver: 

  1. As the liver is composed of two lobes , right and left lobe. Also the liver has an unique ability to regenerate. 
  2. The donor’s right lobe preferably transplanted in and adult recipient and left lobe is transplanted in pediatric age group .. When the portion of the liver is in place in the recipient’s abdominal cavity, the transplanted liver generates supplementary liver tissue adequate for decent functioning. 
  3. The donor liver regrows to nearly 90% of its original volume in 6 weeks and nearly 100 % in three months. Morever liver functions tests revert to completely normal even before complete regeneration happens. 

The knowledge, essential for the living liver donors: 

  1. The living donor transplant method is a lifesaver, but there are some concerns. The donor should have an excellent health record and should be free from cancer, pulmonary hypertension, congestive heart failure, or any other chronic diseases. 
  2. The donor’s liver must be healthy and large enough so that it works correctly after the right lobe is removed. The operation may take many hours, and both the recipient and the donor must rest in the ICU overnight. 
  3. The donor can be discharged by the end of one week and can resume normal household and office work by end of second week.

Patient is advised to avoid abdominal straining for three months but after that he or she can resume absolutely normal life style. Living donor liver transplants have an advantage that they can be performed in elective setting when the patient and donor are well-optimized, eliminates the waiting time, donor liver has been well evaluated and can be performed quickly in advanced or decompensated patients. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

This common ailment often happens because you swallow more air than usual, overeat, smoke, chew gum, or eat foods that cause gas. Flatulence can be embarrassing and painful for anyone, but don’t worry! You easily reduce flatulence with diet and lifestyle choices. Have smaller meals throughout the day. Eat six small meals per day instead of three large meals. Your system may more easily digest fewer meals and produce less gas from them Eat easily digestible carbs. Foods that contain simple carbohydrates may be easier for you to digest Avoid gas-promoting foods. Plan your meals each day to include easily digestible carbs. Steer clear of food choices that may make create gas in your intestines. Find suitable replacements for the following gas-promoting foods Beans and lentils. Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. Bran. Dairy products containing lactose. Fruit such as apples and pears. Sorbitol, a sugar substitute found in some sugar-free products. Fatty junk foods, like fast food burgers or pizza. Chew your meal slowly. If you're famished or you're a fast eater, avoid the temptation to shovel your food into your mouth. Chew each meal slowly so you don’t swallow too much air. Doing this can aid digestion and may minimize the production of gas. Get regular exercise. Physical activity can help your intestines expel gas and stay regular. Exercise for at least 30 minutes most days of the week. If you are unable to do 30 minutes, aim for 2 15-minute sessions of physical movement, which can also ease flatulence. Try different kinds of exercise to prevent flatulence: Running Walking Biking Swimming Yoga For medication consult online in private.
