My mother (57+ yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroid (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis of knee joints (stage-2). Around 7-8 months back, she was diagnosed with mild anemia (Hb 10.6), which got corrected (Hb 12.4) after 2-3 months usage of 'Orofer XT' Around a week back, all of a sudden, she seems to feel lot of gas & indigestion & had to pass motion 15-16 times, out of which last 3-4 times are loose, while rest are normal. She also had stomach pain (around naval chord), which gets relieved after passing motion. This motion got stopped after taking couple of 'Lopamide' tablets in the evening. She was also seen by a medicine doctor on the same day, who had prescribed the following medicines - 1) Citran CT - twice daily for 5-days 2) Vigilac - twice daily for 10-days 3) PAN-D - empty stomach for 5-days. The antibiotic was stopped couple of days back, but she seems to have stomach pain & loose motion (3-times) yesterday evening. Also, she feels gas is not reduced much & she does not have appetite along with weakness. When we talked to the doctor over phone, he advised to continue PAN-D for 2 more weeks & nothing else. Are we on the right track of treatment ?

Drink plenty of fluids 2. Take high fibre diet like salads green leafy vegitable and fruits esp. Papita, banana, mango etc. 3. Take liq. Cremaffin plus 1 teaspoonful at night 4. Take isabagol powder 3-4 teaspoonful in 200 ml. Of water at night. 5. Apply zincal ointment in side anus twice a day 6. Continue sitz' bath with kuke warm water. 7. Increase physical activity like walking, games or exercise regularly 8. Drink two glasses of water first in the morning and then take a walk and the go toilet even though you may not feel like it in a few days time it would be regularised. 9. Avoid taking pain killers and kunk food.

Please doctors suggest me something that is it right that I think alot about it and it comes all time due to over thinking. Nd if yes then please suggest some cure for it.

All About Gallbladder Surgery

Surgery using a laparoscope is the most common way to remove the gallbladder. A laparoscope is a thin, lighted tube that lets the doctor see inside our belly. It is a minimally invasive surgery in which small incisions and specialized tools are used to remove a diseased or infected gallbladder.

The gallbladder is a small organ that sits right under the liver and is credited with bile storage, which can help the body in breaking down various kinds of fats that enter it. So, what all do you need to know about this operation? read this list.

Reasons for gallbladder operation
The gallbladder is not a very efficient organ. It can lead to blockages and choking as the bile it stores can become very thick and difficult to handle. Also, this bile can harbour deposits that are hard ball like substances, usually known as gallbladder stones. The size of these stones can vary from the size of a grain to the size of a golf ball.

Further, these gallbladder stones can cause infections, which can lead to symptoms like nausea, vomiting, bloating and more. Another reason can also be the gallbladder disease known as chloelithiasis, which can cause abdominal pain. Inflammation in the pancreas, also known as pancreatitis, can lead to gallbladder open removal surgery.

Risk
While the gallbladder removal surgery is usually considered a safe one, with little or no complications, there are risks attached to this surgery too. These include sudden and excessive bleeding and the creation of blood clots, allergic reactions to the drugs used as well as anaesthesia, blood vessel damage, accelerated heart rate which leads to an increased risk of contracting a heart attack or heart disease, infections, inflammation or swelling in the pancreas, and injuries caused to the bile duct during surgery.

You might also need this type of surgery if you have the following:
1. Biliary dyskinesia, which occurs when the gallbladder doesn't fill or empty correctly due to a defect
2. Choledocholithiasis, which occurs when gallstones move to the bile duct and potentially cause a blockage that prevents the gallbladder from draining
3. Cholecystitis, which is an inflammation of the gallbladder
4. Pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas

Laparoscopic surgery is preferred over open cholecystectomy surgery because the smaller incisions that are made reduce your risk of infection, bleeding, and recovery time.

Preparation
To prepare for your gallbladder removal surgery, the doctor may ask you to have a prescription fluid so that your bowels are flushed clean. You may also be asked to fast for at least six hours before the surgery so that there is no hindrance to the same. Also, the use of an antibacterial soap to bathe is usually prescribed so that the risk of contracting infections decreases.

While this surgery can be a simple one, you will have to take due care after the surgery to ensure that the recovery is fast and virtually pain free.
