Amputation - Reasons And Risks

MBBS, M S General Surgery ,
General Surgeon, Chandigarh
Amputation -  Reasons And Risks

Roadside accidents are common and they lead to many health problems in which some may require amputation for removal of one of the limbs to save the life of a person.

Amputation is a life-saving procedure by which a part of the body that has suffered irreversible damage is surgically removed. Amputation is only carried out as a last resort when the infection/ decay spread to the other parts of the body.

Why is this procedure needed?

The most common cause of amputation is blockage of blood circulation. Without blood, the tissues do not get oxygen and begin to decay, and an amputation is carried out to stop the damage from spreading to other tissues. As stated above, an amputation is carried out only as a last resort. The surgeon checks the infected part for the following to make sure that an amputation is required:

  • Sensation
  • Circulation
  • Checking for a pulse close to the region where the cut is to be performed
  • Comparing skin temperatures with the affected limb

The surgeon tries to bypass arterial blood from the nearest artery to the affected region to rejuvenate the cells. Some reasons of amputation are:

  • Severe injury (extreme burns/ vehicular accidents)
  • Cancerous tumor in the bone or muscle
  • Serious infection, which has stopped responding to antibiotics
  • Thickening of nerve tissue called neuroma
  • Frostbite

Risks and complications of amputation

Risk of complication is lower in planned amputations than in emergency amputations. In the case of a planned amputation, the surgeon will shape individual muscles for future prosthetic limbs, smooth out rough bones and bone fragments and take care of all the loose ends of the procedure. In emergency amputations, however, the limb is amputated very fast and bleeding is stopped as soon as possible. The following complications may arise as a result of amputation procedures:

  • Heart complications
  • Venous blood clots
  • Slow wound healing or infection of the wound
  • Pneumonia
  • Stump or "phantom limb" pain
  • Psychological problems

EASY RECOVERY AFTER YOUR JOG

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

EASY RECOVERY AFTER YOUR JOG

Before:

For a morning jog of no longer than 30 or 45 minutes at a relaxed pace (you can hold a conversation), a glass of water might be all that's needed ahead of time provided you had a decent dinner the night before. But if last night's meal wasn't filling or if you ate it early, drinking some orange juice or a banana will replace glycogen stores in your muscles to stave off sluggishness. If you're heading out in the afternoon, have a snack like fruit yogurt, milk and fruit, nuts, and milk or nut chikki.

After:

There's no need to take in calories immediately, but try to eat a snack, your breakfast or your next meal within an hour or two. Skipping a solid post-run meal could lead to lethargy or sugar cravings later in the day or down the road, even sickness or injury.

If your girlfriend missed her period then there is a chance that she may be pregnant. There is no such thing as a safe period in young and fertile women. All days of the cycle can be considered ‘risky’ although the risk is highest midcycle (9-20th days). The only way to determine if your girlfriend is pregnant is to do a urine pregnancy test with an early morning sample of urine – this means the first sample of urine when she wakes up as this is the most concentrated sample of the day. If this is positive you will need to see a gynaecologist to discuss what you wish to do further. If the test is negative I would suggest that you wait for 15 days before repeating the test. If that one is also negative you will need to see a gynaecologist for help with further tests and treatment. The technique you have used is called the withdrawal technique for contraception. This is acceptable within long term relationships where the couple do not mind getting pregnant. It has several drawbacks including a high failure rate, sexually transmitted infections, poor sexual satisfaction and a high degree of worry or concern due to the risk of unwanted pregnancy. When the penis is erect a small amount of secretion from the glands allow for lubrication of your urethra. There may be a small drop of secretion at the tip of the penis which may not be seen with the naked eye but this drop contains over a million sperms – as you may already know you only need one sperm to fertilise an egg. When this happens around the time of ovulation the risk of pregnancy is high. In either case sperms can survive in the female genital tract for up to seven days. So please be aware that in young fertile women with regular cycles there is no such thing as ‘safe’ days where you do not need to use contraception. If you are certain that you wish to continue to be sexually active but do not wish to conceive you need better contraception than the withdrawal technique or even just condoms. Condoms will protect against sexually transmitted infections for peno vaginal intercourse but have a high failure rate where prevention of pregnancy is concerned. Please see the doctor to discuss more reliable methods of contraception so that you do not have to worry about an unwanted pregnancy and its risks in future.

Orgasm basically depends on the stimulation, during fore play or while having intercourse/masturbation. Meaning the sexual gratification depends on the external factors and the intensity of you being stimulated/aroused by the carassing/touch are pressure on the sexual organs. amongst them the breast and clitoris play major role. while performing the intercourse or manual during masturbation these need to be stimulated. having said this, there is another saying the arousal depends depends not between the thighs, meaning genitals but between ears, meaning brain. so every thing depends on your arousal due to the partner/self stimulation and imagination. But do not expect orgasm to occur every time you have intercourse, because arousal will become less and less as the frequency increase. all the best

Mefipristone works only in early pregnancy till 8 weeks. If its 5 months pregnancy the only option is to abort it like a small labour if the pregnancy is below 20 weeks. That too it needs proper indication according to the mtp act.

Hello madam/sir. I want to ask you that my mom's having CA right breast cancer. She is under treatment taking herceptin Injection along with saline once in a month. Suddenly she got feel paining on her left upper chest just upper portion from the left breast. What should we do is that heart disease? She has back thought out pain also. Spinal cord. Now seriously scared about that coz of cancer? Kindly help us.

General Surgeon, Pune
From your question it seems like you have not undergone any operative procedure for right CA breast. So there are high chances of the cancer spreading to the opposite breast, which might be causing pain in left chest/breast as you say. Also, CA breast commonly spreads to back bones of vertebral column and cause back pain. Herceptin also should be given only after cardiac examination, and is often given with other chemotherapy drugs, which you did not mention here. So, I'll advise you to meet a oncosurgeon or a general surgeon in person and get examined, and be prepared to undergo some investigations.

Thanks for your question. When using condoms there is always a risk of pregnancy as they are not the most reliable contraceptive. If you feel even a drop of semen may have leaked or you had anyvgenital contact before intercourse without condoms then please encourage her to take emergency pill. Ipill, unwanted 72. If taken within 24 hrs of unprotected intercourSe it can prevent an unwanted pregnancy (95%success). Any delay gradually reduces the effectiveness. If in doubt please consult your gynaecoLogist best wishes.
