Before Some days I feel pain on the opening of anus. When I checked it was like cut on it due to this I felt pain during toilet and walking also and after two three days it has gone but it appeared after 10-12 days and disappeared after 2 days. Is there any serious issue?

MBBS, DNB

It could be injury to your anak tract known as anal fissure. Make sure the stools you pass stay soft and donot become hard. Take adequate amount of water, 8-10 glasses, take Luke warm water with syrup duphalac at night to keep stools soft, and also use lignocaine jelly 2% with the applicator to reduce pain, it may take up to a week to heal.

If ulcer is blast the person can live or die how to identify the ulcer. Operation is done immediately or we can wait to do operations ct scan is necessary to do for that patient blood pressure should be normal or not for scanning. Please advise

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Perforated ulcer is a Surgical Emergency. It can be diagnosed by an upright X-ray of the abdomen in which both domes of diaphragms are well seen. If the free air is obviously seen under the right dome of diaphragm, it is a classical diagnosis of the perforated viscus. Patient is rapidly resuscitated for his hemp dynamic imbalance and should be taken for the Emergency surgery, as early as possible. The surgery done in such cases is to open the abdomen, find out the perforated viscus, repair the perforation, clean the contaminated peritoneal cavity with liberal amount of lukewarm sterile normal saline, Drains are kept and abdomen is closed. In case if the plain X ray is not able to show the findings, then the CT abdomen helps in diagnosing the free air in the peritoneal cavity. It is suggested that the patient cannot moved to CT department in the unstable condition. I hope you are better informed now.

We are in US now. My husband (70 years) is affected with gastric pain on the left side below the chest, gas, burning indigestion and acid reflex. Maybe due to spicy food or hotel food, he has been having stomach trouble on and off last couple of months. He was given by the local doctor OMEPRAZOLE 20 mg, one per day, and antacid liquid. Asked to take soups only for 3 days. Does this need immediate investigation like endoscopy etc? We're stuck in US at present.

Peptic Ulcer - Causes, Symptoms and Homeopathy Treatment For It!

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Pune
Peptic Ulcer - Causes, Symptoms and Homeopathy Treatment For It!

Most likely you are suffering from duodenal ulcer if there is pain in the upper abdomen which is relieved by eating. If it increases after eating, it may be because of gastric ulcer. Gastric ulcers and Duodenal ulcer come under the category of Peptic ulcer disease (PUD). It is a lesion in the mucosal lining of the digestive tract, typically in the stomach as gastric ulcer or duodenum (1st part of the intestines) as Duodenal ulcers. These are caused by the digestive action of pepsin (a digestive enzyme) and stomach acid. 

Nearly 70–90% cases of such ulcers are linked to a spiral-shaped bacterium called H. PYLORI that thrives in the acidic environment of the stomach. The incidence of peptic ulcers occurring in the duodenum (the initial tract of the small intestine) is four times higher than those arising in the stomach.

Causes of Peptic Ulcer:

The underlying process that results in Peptic ulcer formation is an excess of acid production in the stomach and damage to the protective barrier inside the stomach. Certain things that can trigger excess acid production or can cause damage to the protective lining of the stomach are:

  1. Emotional stress
  2. Foods (spices, pungent foods, etc)
  3. Overuse of certain drugs, especially NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
  4. Infections (H-Pylori)
  5. Hereditary
  6. Smoking

Symptoms

Symptoms of peptic ulcers include:

  1. vomiting tendencies
  2. nausea
  3. pain in the upper and middle portions of the stomach after a meal and at night
  4. blood in the stool
  5. weight loss
  6. bleeding in the gastrointestinal region

Gastric Ulcer

Common To Both

Duodenal Ulcer  Symptoms

More Likely to be felt immediately after eating. 

Bloating

More likely to be felt a few hours after eating.

 

  Heartburn  
  Nausea  
  Loss of Appetite  
  Nausea  
 

Burping

 
 

Pain when eating high-fat foods.

 
 

Pain when the stomach is empty.

 
 

Pain in the stomach that may feel like burning.

 

Complications:

  1. Hemorrhage
  2. Perforation of ulcer
  3. Gastric outlet obstruction (obstruction in terminal part of stomach)

How to Prevent Peptic Ulcers
Certain lifestyle choices and habits can reduce your risk of developing peptic ulcers. These include:

  • not drinking more than two alcoholic beverages a day
  • not mixing alcohol with medication
  • washing your hands frequently to avoid infections
  • limiting your use of ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen sodium

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and quitting smoking and other tobacco use will also help you prevent developing a peptic ulcer.

Homeopathic Treatment For Peptic Ulcers
Homeopathy offers some very good medicines for peptic ulcer disease. But for a homeopath, the symptoms of the disease are much more important than the ulcer itself. This is because to select the right medicine a homeopath needs to differentiate between the finer presentations of a disease which, vary from person to person. A homeopath not only tries to heal the ulcer but also tries to remove the general predisposition to acquire it. The homeopath not only tries to find ‘What is wrong?’, but also ‘Why it went wrong?’; ‘Where it started going wrong?’; ‘How it evolved to the current stage?’ etc. To find the answers to all these questions, a homeopath tries to gather as much information as possible regarding the past and present medical history of the patient, the family history, general, physical and psychological characteristics, etc. This hard work on the part of homeopath not only helps in removing the acute symptoms and the ulcer but also is usually able to remove the tendency for relapse. The ‘on-again/off-again’ nature of the disease is often removed and the general health of the person also improves as a result.

Effective Homeopathic Medications For Peplic Ulcer
Some of the most effective homeopathic medications used in the treatment of peptic ulcers are mentioned below. However, you shouldn’t try to self-medicate as it is best to consult with a doctor who can properly diagnose the problems and prescribe medication which are specifically tailored for you.

  1. Argentum Nitricum – One of the most effective medications in treating ulcers, Argentum Nitricum is usually prescribed when you experience sharp burning pains from peptic ulcers that radiate to different areas of the abdomen. The pain is akin to the feeling of gnawing inside the stomach. Other symptoms such as vomiting, belching and nausea may also be present. 
  2. Nux Vomica – If you have peptic ulcers and even eating the slightest amount of food causes pain, then Nux vomica may be a good option and thus be prescribed by your doctor. Another indication in such cases is where the abdominal region is very sensitive and you may feel pain even with the slightest touch. Nux Vomica is also very effective if your peptic ulcer symptoms tend to get worse after the consumption of tea, coffee, spicy foods or alcoholic beverages.
  3. Kali Bichromicum – Sometimes, peptic ulcers may cause the food in your stomach to sit like a heavy load immediately after meals. This can make you very uncomfortable and unable to do any other form of work. This is often times accompanied by a low appetite. In such cases, Kali Bichromicum has been seen to work wonders.
  4. Lycopodium Clavatum – If you have burning pain in your stomach along with the bloating of your abdomen, then Lycopodium Clavatum is the best medication for you. Other indications for this medication are when ingestion of warm water helps relieve pain. If consuming certain vegetables such as cabbage and beans worsen the situation, then Lycopodium Clavatum could be the best medication in such a case. 
  5. Carbo-veg – An all-rounder in the field of homeopathy, Carbo-Veg is also effective when treating peptic ulcers which are accompanied by heartburn and acidity as well as sour belching. The pain from the ulcers may extend from the stomach all the way to the back. Other indications wherein Carbo-Veg may be effective is where the stomach area becomes very sensitive to touch and even small amounts of food may suddenly cause the symptoms to deteriorate.
  6. Hydrastis Canadensis – Stomach or abdominal pain accompanied by weight loss is one of the major indications where this medication may be prescribed. The patient may become emaciated and have sharp cutting pains in the stomach. In such cases, Hydrastis has been seen to be very effective.
  7. Graphites – This medication is extremely useful where along with the ulcer pain, you may end up vomiting your food immediately after a meal. A sensation which is painful and constricted may be present in your stomach. Along with these symptoms, Graphites are also very effective when you suffer from excessive belching.
  8. Phosphorus If you exhibit typical symptoms of peptic ulcer such as sour belching and a burning sensation in the stomach after eating, Phosphorus could well be the panacea. 

Prognosis

When the underlying cause of peptic ulcer disease is successfully treated, the prognosis (expected outcome) for patients with the condition is excellent. To help prevent peptic ulcers:

  • Avoid cigarette.
  • Aspirin and non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory drugs should be avoided.
  • Spicy and rich food may aggravate. If so, it should be avoided.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Take frequent small meals instead of two or three big meals.
  • Bland diet and hygienically prepared food.
  • Proper cleaning of utensils for food.
  • Proper cleaning of hands before preparing and eating food.
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Common sources of Helicobacter pylori bacteria (e.g., contaminated food and water, floodwater, raw sewage)
  • Long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

Good hygiene can help reduce the risk for peptic ulcer disease caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. Washing the hands thoroughly with warm soapy water after using the restroom and before eating and avoiding sharing eating utensils and drinking glasses also can reduce the spread of bacteria that can cause PUD.

GERD can be controlled and cured with help of medicines but it also requires lifestyle changes Avoid oily and very spicy foods. Oily foods even if not spicy can cause GERD Eat slightly smaller meals but more frequent so you don’t loose weight Keep a gap of at least 2-3 hours between dinner and going to bed. Continue whatever medicines have been prescribed and do not stop unless you’ve been advised to stop. Suddenly stopping medicine could again increase the GERD Ideally the medicines are stopped very gradually.

You should avoid spicy foods. Take your meals at a proper time. Do not stay without food for long hours. Smaller, light frequent meals are better than 2-3 main full meals. Drink plenty of fluids too. You can consult a homeopath for treatment of your problem.
