Hello I an suffering form Umbilical Hernia. I have consulted with a doctor. But I want second opinion. According to him cost will be Rs. 40000.

Umbilical hernia will need surgery. Hernia is basically a gap in your muscles which needs to be closed with sutures and placing a mesh to avoid recurrent hernia. You can go for open or laparoscopic surgery. This cost seems appropriate for an open hernia repair. Laparoscopy will cost a bit more as mesh and equipment cost is more. The surgery can be covered in insurance if you have.

Hi, my mom had a fainting spell today. She had loose motions since yesterday she might have gone 6 times. She was feeling weak and tired and also had body ache. Today somewhere in the afternoon while standing she had a black out and passed out. She passed out with her eyes open and her mouth clenched really tight. We had to put a spoon inside her mouth to prevent it from getting locked. She regained consciousness in 5 mins, and had no recollection of what happened. We rushed her to the doctor and the doctor checked her pressure, blood level, and temperature. But everything seemed normal. I am petrified I need a second opinion. I will be doing her blood test in a couple of days. When asked the doctor what was her reason of fainting, he said it could be epilepsy. But this has never ever happened to her before. I need a second opinion. Please please help.

Hello, Faints with or with out loss of consciousness can be due to several reasons. Yes, Epilepsy can be one of the reasons but we have to rule out other causes too. You have mentioned that she has diarrhoea, sometimes BP can go low with loose motions causing dizziness or faints. She will need further investigations to check if it is epilepsy/ neurological problem and to rule out cardiac causes. Please make sure she is well hydrated and start getting the investigations done.

Acne or pimples is a common skin condition frequently seen in young individuals during teenage and youth years. This occurs mainly due to the action of hormones on the oil glands in the skin. The draining ducts of the oil glands get blocked and hence they are not able to drain the oil secretion. The oil and cells inside the blocked gland form a perfect environment for the growth of Propionibacterium acnes (the organism responsible for acne). Thus, it results in the formation of pimples or acne. Acne usually occurs on the face, chest, back, shoulders and neck. It is one of the most common skin conditions. Although acne is not a serious threat to the health, yet it can lead to scarring and disfigurement of the face that can have a significant impact on the patient. Acne is a dynamic conditions triggered by multiple factors such as hormones, food, climate, irregular lifestyle and stress. The homeopathic medicines for acne or pimples are chosen on the basis of the underlying causes and factors which lead to or increases acne. There are about 20 most common medicines to choose from, for acne. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Two doctors told different %block in left ventricle need opinion for angioplasty.

Two doctors told different %block in left ventricle need opinion for angioplasty.
Dear Amrita, it seems you mean blockage on leftside arteries of heart. Its true that percentage of block assesed by visual inspection will vary if you show to different doctors. Its not exact. But whether its signoficant blockage or not can be told. For example 80% or 90% both will require angioplasty. If the block is in 50 to 70% range, or what we call as intermediate lesion, then we do a test called FFR, which will determine if a block needs angioplasty or can be managed medically. I hope your doctors might have explained in details. Thank you.
