My wife started losing weight since last september. November after test we were informed she is having lever her 2 positive. Then she was given herceptin inection 7 rounds every 21 days. At the same time fluid started accumulating in her lever which was removed about 9 liters. So her wt further came down and now she is being given kheemo on weekly basis (one dosage split into 3 weeks) tuxol is the name of the kheemo medicine. She is having continuous stomach ache and not able to pass her stoool and she does not feel like having food also. She looks like 90 years old lady when she is only 50 years old. Her left breast was removed during 2000 co of breast cancer. Now initially she was informed metastasis of lever. After herceptin Dr. Says her 2 is negative now (after the biopsy). We need a proper guidance so that she can put on weight and come back to her original weight of 57 kgs. Now she is 42 kg.

General Physician,
It is highly specialised treatment. Usually super-specialty hospital treats these case. Loss of weight of your wife is a natural part of the disease, so also the appetite loss. You shall have to consult your oncologist, who is the best person to answer your question and you should not run from pillar to post with your hope and questions for any miracle to happen. Nutritious food is the key to gain weight. Yet your oncologist is the right person to guide you.

Having upper left side abdominal pain. Worse in periods. What should I do? I am a 27 year old female.
Dear Lybrate User , Abdominal pain in menstrual period is very common , but your left side abdominal pain is mainly due to improper digestion as you mentioned gradual pain with vomiting sensation with bloating . So kindly take - Hingwashtaka Choorna ( Powder ) - 5 gm daily two times after food with buttermilk for immediate relief. For any further Ayurveda clinical assistance kindly revert back to me. Thanking You.

What You Need to Know About Cesarean Section?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
What You Need to Know About Cesarean Section?

Babies can enter this world in one of two ways: Pregnant women can have either a vaginal birth or a surgical delivery by Caesarean section, but the ultimate goal is to safely give birth to a healthy baby.

A C-section, or Caesarean section is a surgical procedure to remove baby through an incision in the mother’s abdomen and then a second incision in the uterus.

Sometimes the decision by an obstetrician to perform a C-section is unplanned, and it is done for emergency reasons because the health of the mother, the baby, or both of them is in jeopardy. This may occur because of a problem during pregnancy or after a woman has gone into labor, such as if labor is happening too slowly or if the baby is not getting enough oxygen.

Some C-sections are considered elective, meaning they are requested by the mother for non-medical reasons before she goes into labor. A woman may choose to have a C-section if she wants to plan when she delivers or if she previously had a complicated vaginal delivery.

Reasons for a C-section may include

  • Health problems in the mother
  • The mother carrying more than one baby
  • The size or position of the baby
  • The baby’s health is in danger
  • Labor is not moving along as it should

The surgery is relatively safe for mother and baby. Still, it is major surgery and carries risks. It also takes longer to recover from a C-section than from vaginal birth. It can raise the risk of having difficulties with future pregnancies. Some women may have problems attempting a vaginal birth later. Still, many women are able to have a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).

How You Might Feel

You won’t feel any pain during the C-section, although you may feel sensations like pulling and pressure. Most women are awake and simply numbed from the waist down using regional anesthesia during a C-section.

However, women who need to have an emergency C-section occasionally require general anesthesia, so they’re unconscious during the delivery and won’t remember anything or feel any pain.

Recovering from a C-section

After a C-section, a woman may spend two to four days in the hospital, but it may take her up to six weeks to feel more like herself again.

Her abdomen will feel sore from the surgery and the skin and nerves in this area will need time to heal. Women will be given pain medications to take the edge off any post-surgery pain, and most women use them for about two weeks afterward.

A woman may also experience bleeding for about four to six weeks after a surgical birth. She is also advised to not have sex for a few weeks after her C-section and to also avoid strenuous activities, such as lifting heavy objects.

My average period cycle varies between 26 to 27 days. I am 26 years old. In December I had multiple physical encounters with my fiance leading me to take i pill 3 times in the same month. Although I got my period on the 2nd January on time, my flow is bare minimum than usual. Also we got intimate on the first day of the period and it was unprotected! I am concerned whether am I pregnant and if not then why is my flow unusual? Is it something I should be concerned about? Please Help!

U don't need to worry if flow amount is normal. Since you didn't get menses for almost 3 months, its normal to get little heavy bleeding when you do get your menses. You need to consult your doctor to regularise your cycles. Without personal consultation, you can't expect good cure.

One time sex karne se kya girl pregnant ho sakti hai. Please help in this regard.

MBBS, PGDUS, Fellowship In Aesthetic Medicine, Advance Course In Diabetes - USA, MD - Medicine

Hello lybrate user, yes, she can. Although chances can be decreased or increased depending upon the day of menstrual cycle but practically, she can become pregnant due to sex done on any day of menstrual cycle. But there is no need to worry, just wait for the periods to come. If she has missed periods then both of you can check for pregnancy using hcg strip (otc) and can decide together whether you want or not want. If sex time is nearby you can use ipill or emergency contraceptive depending upon the time of sexual contact.

Somatic Symptom Disorder: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Somatic Symptom Disorder: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Somatic symptom disorder is when you put so much focus on symptoms such as pain or fatigue that you have trouble functioning or experience severe emotional distress. You will be visiting the doctor a lot, completely unnecessarily and will waste a lot of money when you have no major health concerns. However, there are treatments, which can help you cope with this problem. Read further to find out what they are:

Symptoms 

  1. Worrying excessively about an illness, which has not yet occurred
  2. Frequent health care visits
  3. Fear of physical activity damaging your body
  4. Fearing that the evaluation of doctors is not adequate

There are many more symptoms, which may indicate that you are suffering from somatic symptom disorder. However, the most important way of telling whether someone is suffering from somatic symptom disorder or not is to see whether the patient is overly worried about a physical problem, which has not yet occurred. One of the first steps in making sure that this does not happen is finding out what causes the problem and preventing it. Here are the causes of somatic symptom disorder.

Causes: As with other psychological disorders, the exact cause of somatic symptom disorder is not yet known. However, there are a number of factors which may increase the risk of it, such as: 

  1. Genetic and biological factors: These as well as an increased sensitivity to pain are some of the factors, which you have no control over. 
  2. Environment you grew up in: Just like the genes you have, the environment you grew up in and your family influence will have a major impact on whether you develop the condition as well.
  3. Problems processing emotions: When people have problems processing emotions, their physical symptoms seem like a bigger problem than they actually are.

Treatment: Luckily, there are treatments for this disorder as well, which include.

  1. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is the most common treatment used to help people with somatic symptom disorder.
  2. Medications: Since depression and pain often occur when a person is suffering from somatic symptom disorder, antidepressants can be given as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.
