Also I feel a lump has formed near anus area, but that is not too big, so I have taken amlox -c and also now I am using betaraite ointment. I want to avoid surgery what shall I do? Is it annal fissure or fistula and any difference between them. But now I do not have any hard stool coming out.

Don't strain at stool. Drink 3 litres of water per day eat high roughage food apply ruticool cream locally thrice a day if no relief. Check with a general surgeon. Its always best to have a proper check up ad such things (? piles) may be indication of some internal health problems.

When you don't take proper meal at proper timings these problems are common. You should include more fibers to your diet in the form of fruits or fiber biscuits. And having food or anything to eat in every two hours will help you. That means you don't have time increase your diet you just have to split it over the day.

Gall stone size 10mm no problem with it. Can it be removed without surgery? Non surgical treatments.

If you do not have any problem, you can just observe it by usg every 6 months and get it operated if symptoms develop. There is no way to remove it but surgery can be avoided in asymptomatic gall stone.

बदहजमी की तमाम वजहें हो सकती हैं। मसलन भूख से ज्यादा खाना, खाने को सही तरीके से नहीं चबाना, नींद पूरी न होना, खाना सही तरह से पका न होना या फिर एक्सरसाइज न करना। इसके अलावा तेज मसालेदार भोजन और जीवनशैली में बदलाव के कारण भी पाचन की समस्या पैदा हो सकती है।

बदहजमी होने पर इन घरेलू नुस्खों को आजमाएं :

एक चम्मच अजवाइन के साथ नमक मिलाकर खाने से बदहजमी से तुरंत छुटकारा मिलता है।

एक गिलास पानी में पुदीने के रस की दो-तीन बूंदें डालकर हर तीन-चार घंटे के अंतराल पर पीएं।

एक गिलास गुनगुने पानी में एक चम्मच नींबू, अदरक का रस और दो छोटे चम्मच शहद भी मिला लें। इसे पीने से पाचन संबंधी परेशानी दूर होगी।

अगर एसिडिटी से परेशान हैं, तो एक गिलास पानी में नींबू निचोड़कर पीएं।

अगर चाय पीना नहीं छोड़ सकते, तो हर्बल टी का प्रयोग करना शुरू कर दें।

कॉफी, अल्कोहल और धूम्रपान से बचें। इनसे भी पाचन खराब होने की आशंका होती है।

अधिक टाइट कपड़े और जींस न पहनें।

डिनर सोने से कम से कम दो-तीन घंटे पहले कर लें।

एक चम्मच धनिए के भुने हुए बीज को एक गिलास छाछ में मिलाकर पीएं।

खाने के बाद एक चम्मच सौंफ अवश्य चबाएं।

अगर आपके मुंह का जायका खराब हो रहा है तो अदरक के टुकड़े में काला नमक लगाकर खाएं।

अपने भोजन में रेशेदार फल-सब्जियों को शामिल करें। मैदा से बनी चीजों का सेवन न करें।

भोजन हमेशा समय पर करें.

प्रतिदिन सुबह देसी शहद में निम्बू रस मिलाकर चाट लें.

हींग, लहसुन, चद गुप्पा ये तीनो बूटियाँ पीसकर गोली बनाकर छाँव में सुखा लें, व् प्रतिदिन एक गोली खाएं.

भोजन के समय सादे पानी के बजाये अजवायन का उबला पानी प्रयोग करें.

लहसुन, जीरा १० ग्राम घी में भुनकर भोजन से पहले खाएं.

सौंठ पावडर शहद ये गर्म पानी से खाएं.

लौंग का उबला पानी रोजाना पियें.

जीरा, सौंफ, अजवायन इनको सुखाकर पावडर बना लें,शहद के साथ भोजन से पहले प्रयोग करें.

Tips to Beat Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) :

1.Learn how to eat

The first step to controlling IBS is eating properly. And not just what you eat, but when and how. Eat little and often and at regular times.

Your digestive system will then get into a good routine and eating smaller amounts will avoid bloating and diarrhoea.

Also eat slowly. Gulping food quickly can make you swallow air, which results in wind and bloating. Chew well and drink lots of water.

2 Change your pattern

Eat your biggest meals earlier in the day and have a light evening meal. Also have foods that are harder to digest like raw fruit and vegetables before 4pm.

3 Soothe yourself

Different herbs and supplements can ease the symptoms of IBS. Calcium supplements are thought to counteract diarrhoea as it slows down gut contractions.

Experts recommend linseed for constipation, while artichoke can help digestive complaints, especially after eating fatty foods.

Finally, taking 500mg of turmeric extract once a day can also help because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

4 Keep on moving

Regular exercise can r­educe bloating and constipation in IBS ­sufferers. Even 30 minutes of moderate exercise like brisk walking or yoga five times a week will help.

5 Peppermint oil

Taken in tea, oil, herb or capsule form, ­peppermint oil can help alleviate symptoms by relaxing the intestinal muscles.

Peppermint tea bags are readily available or just add a few drops of oil to half a glass of warm water.

6 Try different things

There are a number of complementary therapies that might ease ­symptoms, including reflexology, aromatherapy, massage, acupressure and yoga.

Find one that suits you.

7 Be prepared

Many sufferers dread going out for meals for fear the stress will trigger symptoms. But planning ahead is key.

First, find out where the loo is as soon as you arrive so you know you can get there easily if you need to.

Try to have a look at the menu before you go so you can carefully pick out the safest foods for you. Lots of ­restaurants have their menus online.

If you’re afraid of things going wrong, take some preventative medication before you go out.

Don’t overeat. ­Finally, relax as stress could risk an attack.

8 Black pepper

It might not seem that powerful, but black pepper can make a big difference.

Black pepper oil soothes cramps and relieves wind and also stimulates a sluggish digestive system.

9 Breathe slowly

Some people swallow air when they’re anxious, adding to the problem of wind and bloating.

Learn to control this by practising abdominal breathing.

Sit comfortably with your shoulders lowered and relaxed. Breathe in slowly through both nostrils and count to five, expanding your tummy.

Hold for five seconds and then exhale to a count of five, drawing your stomach in.

10 Sleep tight

Too little sleep or poor sleep has been shown to have a direct impact on the severity of IBS, so avoid caffeine later in the day.
