Hello sir, your mother has completed the radiotherapy schedule for carcinoma cervix. Due to the side effects of chemo-radiotherapy, she might be experiencing loss of appetite and weakness. She needs a good diet rich in green leafy vegetables and plenty of fluids orally. She will be recovering in few days but she requires good care at present. To increase her appetite, some medicines can be given.

I am a woman of 24 ,I recently got married, I have painful breast lumps (Benign fibrous growth, in both breast, and vit D Deficiency level 21, my in-laws are unaware of that, they are enforcing me for a baby, I am taking Homeopathy medicine, but according to my doctor it may take time at least 2 year, I wanted to be cured totally as soon as possible, will it possible anyhow? Will I be able to bear a healthy baby , or I will not totally cured? USG and mammogram done, nothing serious, please suggest me doctor, what to do, how to be cured soon?

Benign Breast lumps in both breasts need no treatment, they are benign, many times they don;'t even grow & you can ignore them. Get them checked once a year and if one of them grows very large may need a small surgery to remove, however if they remain small & are painful then no need to get anything right now. You may go ahead with your pregnancy. These lumps never become cancerous so don't worry. I would suggest no need to hide from anyone.

ECMO New Era of Medicicne

Homeopath,
ECMO New Era of Medicicne

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.

ICU patients’ lungs fail for a number of reasons including pneumonia, lung cancer, pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism and COPD.

 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.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Respected sir, I would like to the best chemotherapy for the lungs cancer. Kindly suggest the side effect of the chemotherapy. And which hospital we need to refer.

There is no such thing as best chemotherapy. The oncologist first evaluates whether the cancer is in early stage or late. In early stages we can do surgery. In late stages, the patients general condition will be assessed and something called as receptor status is studied. Based on these the further chemotherapy is planned which is ideally suited for his general condition and his tumour type.

What are the basic symptoms of blood cancer and treatment and control of the blood cancer? If any person is suffering from blood cancer at that time what type of food is suitable for him?

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist, Mandsaur
Symptoms of Blood cancer The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Blood cancer includes the 22 symptoms listed below: •Fatigue •Malaise •Breathlessness •Weakness •Excessive or easy bruising •Bleeding gums or frequent nose bleeds •Recurrent infections or fever •Sweating at night •Weight loss •Anorexia •Lymph node (gland) enlargement •Lumps or abdominal distension due to enlarged abdominal organs •Abdominal pain •Bone pain •Back pain •Bone fractures from minimal trauma •Confusion •Delirium •Headaches •Visual disturbance •Fluid retention •Decreased urination Blood Cancer Prevention Even after a lot of research scientists are not able to find ways to prevent most types of blood cancer. There are no absolute risk factors identified for this cancer but the key is to reduce the known ones. Also, doing some of these simple things will boost your immunity and can reduce the risk to some extent. •Avoid exposure to radiations If possible avoid exposure to high doses of radiation as during the certain treatment procedures patients are often exposed to high intensity radiation which increases their odds of succumbing to blood cancer. •Avoid exposure to chemicals Avoid getting exposed to certain harmful chemicals such as pesticides, as this may add up to increased risk of blood cancer. If your occupation forces you to stay in touch with these chemicals you must take proper safety measures. Exposure to benzene can also increase the chances of this cancer. •Avoid smoking or tobacco in every form Cigarette or tobacco consumption is a huge risk factor for not only cancers but several other diseases and should be completely avoided. By following few healthy lifestyle habits given below one can reduce the chances of getting affected with any type of cancer. •Regular exercise Regular exercise is essential to keep the body healthy. If you exercise daily for 30 minutes there are less chances of getting affected to the blood cancer, but still there is no evidence which supports it. •Eat healthy Healthy food consumption helps you to fight against diseases. Increasing consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables that contain fibers and a lot of nutrients reduces the risk of blood cancer to some exten •Don't ignore the symptoms Be watchful of your body and the signals it gives to you, especially when you are being exposed to one or few risk factor of blood cancer. Always consult your doctor when any kind of signs related to the cancer is seen. By having regular health checkups the blood cancer detection can be done at early stages. To live healthy & happy, one must keep a check on the body’s functioning by going for regular health checkups. This helps in assessing risk factors and diagnosing diseases at an early stage, which will result in effective treatment and better management of the condition. Blood cancer treatment & therapy options Treatment for blood cancer depends on the type of cancer, your age, how fast the cancer is progressing, where the cancer has spread and other factors. Some common blood cancer treatments include: •Stem cell transplantation: A stem cell transplant infuses healthy blood-forming stem cells into the body. Stem cells can be collected from the bone marrow, circulating (peripheral) blood and umbilical cord blood. •Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is the use of anticancer drugs designed to interfere with and halt the growth of cancer cells in the body. Chemotherapy for blood cancer sometimes consists of giving several drugs together in a set regimen. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant. •Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy may be used to destroy cancer cells or to relieve pain or discomfort. It may also be given before a stem cell transplant.

What is Cancer? How it is interconnected with tumor? How someone can realize that he is suffering in cancer in early step of cancer?

MBBS, DNB - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
When any cells of our body divide in excess they can form tumors. All tumors are not cancer. Tumor is called cancer if it has chance of spreading from one part of body to another. Some cancers can be detected early if you go for yearly health check ups. Like colon, prostate, lung, abdomen etc. It is important to have healthy lifestyle. Avoid smoking and tobacco. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables regularly and drink 2-3 litres of water. Also maintain weight by exercising regularly.
