Hello, You need not to worry about your disease as we have got expertise in treating Vitiligo (white spot). With more than 20000 patients in last 15 years we have refined ayurvedic treatment which is capable of giving quick results and is safe. Vitiligo (white spot) is a genetic disorder triggered by indigestion and stressful conditions. There is always a confusion in patients’ mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Every patient has 3 choices: 1.Allopathy - gives quick results but is not very safe for long term use. 2.Homeopathy- is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i.e old patches show some recovery but new white patches continue to come even while using the medication. 3.Ayurveda -If one thinks about. It is difficult to find a good Consultant. Suggesting any medicines or local application to you will not be a good idea, as I will require a complete case taking so that the root of cause is eliminated to prevent relapse. You can send pictures of the affected area. After reviewing the case individually, will guide you about the best possible treatment and time frame.

Hi lybrate-user, Thanks for posting on Lybrate, Our body has sufficient mechanism to retain water when we drink less than usual and to lose water when we drink excess of water. This mechanism is through our kidneys. By and large, 2 litres of water a day would be sufficient for a person. But few people may require less or more than that. So, my advice is. Drink enough water so that you are not feeling thirsty often. If you fell thirsty often, that means your body needs more water than what you are consuming. If you are passing urine repeatedly than usual, you can consider you may require less water than you are consuming. This is considering you do not have Diabetes Mellitus or any kidney problems or other physical ailments. Hope this answers your question. Thanks

My problem is different, I am 21 years old. My face very oily, pimples and black spots. Plzs help?
Oily skin is a common cosmetic problem that is characterized by medium to large-sized pores, a shiny appearance, especially around the area of the nose, chin, and forehead, and a tendency to develop blemishes and blackheads. Stress, medications, hormones, incorrect products and changes in seasons can rob skin of needed moisture, causing it to produce a surge of oil to compensate for what’s lacking; overuse of products including make-up which is not suitable for your skin type, and sun tan can injure skin and cause it to produce excess oil. Skin always reacts in the opposite way to the way we want it to: the more vigorously you attempt to remove the sebum, the more skin will produce oil to replace it. There are various chemical peels available which helps in cleaning the pores from within and it is always advisable to get peels done from a well-qualified dermatologist only. You can consult on private chat for further queries.

Total Laparoscopic Hystrectomy (TLH)

MBBS, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology -
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
Total Laparoscopic Hystrectomy (TLH)

Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

What is a total laparoscopic hysterectomy?

Is the removal of the uterus and cervix through four small (1/2 Abdominal incisions. Removal of the ovaries and tubes depends on the patient).

Why is this surgery used?

To treat disease of the uterus

• Fibroids

• Endometriosis

• Infection in the ovaries or tubes

• Pelvic pain

• Overgrowth of tissue in the lining of the uterus

• Abnormal vaginal bleeding

How do I prepare for surgery?

The lab work for your surgery must be done at least 3 days beforesurgery. Some medications need to be stopped before the surgery. Smoking can affect your surgery and recovery. Smokers may have difficulty breathing during the surgery and tend to heal more slowly after surgery. If you are a smoker, it is best to quit 6-8 weeks before surgery. You will be told at your pre-op visit whether you will need a bowel prepfor your surgery and if you do, what type you will use. The prep to clean your bowel will have to be completed the night before your surgery.

• You will need to shower at home before surgery.

• Do not wear makeup, nail polish, lotion, deodorant, or antiperspirant on the day of surgery.

• Remove all body piercings and acrylic nails.

Most women recover and are back to most activities in 4-6 weeks. Youmay need a family member or a friend to help with your day-to-day activities for a few days after surgery.

What can I expect during the surgery?

Once in the operating room, you will receive general anesthesia before the surgery to keep you from feeling pain. A tube to help you breathe will be placed in your throat. Another tube will be placed in your stomach to remove any gas or other contents to reduce the likelihood of injury during the surgery. The tube is usually removed before you wake up. A catheter will be inserted into your bladder to drain urine and to monitor the amount of urine coming out during surgery. Compression stockings will be placed on your legs to prevent blood clots in your legs and lungs during surgery. After you are asleep the laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen and carbon dioxide gas is blown into the abdomen to inflate the belly wall away from the internal organs. After you are asleep the doctor will remove the uterus, cervix, and possibly the ovaries and tubes through the 4 small abdominal incisions.

What are possible risks from this surgery?

Although there can be problems that result from surgery, we work very hard to make sure it is as safe as possible. However, problems can occur, even when things go as planned. You should be aware of these possible problems, how often they happen, and what will be done to correct them.

Possible risks during surgery include:

Bleeding: If there is excessive bleeding, you will receive a blood transfusion. Conversion to an open surgery requiring an up and down or Bikini incision: If a bigger open incision is needed during your surgery, you may need to stay in the hospital for one or two nights.

• Damage to the bladder, ureters (the tubes that drain the kidneys into the bladder), and to the bowel: Damage occurs in less than 1% of surgeries. If there is damage to the bladder, urete rs, or to the bowel they will be repaired while you are in surgery.

• Death: All surgeries have a risk of death. Some surgeries have a higher risk than others. Possible risks that can occur days to weeks after surgery:

• Blood clot in the legs or lungs:Swelling or pain, shortness of breath, or chest pain are signs of blood clots.

Bowel obstruction:

A blockage in the bowel that causes abdominal painbloating, nausea and/or vomiting.

• Hernia:Weakness in the muscle at the incision that causes a lump under the skin.

• Incision opens: The abdominal or vaginal incision.

•Infection: Bladder or surgical site infection. This may cause fever,redness, swelling or pain.

•Scar tissue: Tissue thicker than normal skin forms at the site of surgery

What happens after the surgery?

• You will be taken to the recovery room and monitored for a short time before going to the observation unit.

• Depending on the length of your surgery, you may not be able to eat or drink anything until the next morning or you will be started on a liquid diet. When you are feeling better you may return to a regular diet.

• You may have cramping, feel bloated, or shoulder pain.

• You may have a scratchy or sore throat from the tube used for youranesthesia.

• You will be given medications for pain and nausea if needed.

Have the tube in your bladder removed in recovery room.

Have the compression stockings on your legs to improve circulation.

Be restarted on your routine medications.

Be given a small plastic device at your bedside to help expand your lungs after surgery.

Start walking as soon as possible after the surgery to help healingand recovery.

Stay in the hospital for 24 hours.

When will I go home after surgery?

Most women spend one night in the hospital and are ready to go home around noon -time the day after surgery. You should plan for someone to be at the hospital by noon to drive you home.

At home after surgery : If you use a bowel prep before surgery, it is common not to have a bowel movement for several days.

Call your doctor right away if you: 

• develop a fever over 100.4°F (38°C)

• start bleeding like a menstrual period or (and) are changing a pad every hour

• have severe pain in your abdomen or pelvis that the pain medication is not helping

• have heavy vaginal discharge with a bad odor

• have nausea and vomiting

• have chest pain or difficulty breathing

• leak fluid or blood from the incision or if the incision opens

• develop swelling, redness, or pain in your legs develop a rash

• have pain with urination

• Your in cision will be closed with dissolvable stitches.

Vaginal Bleeding:

• Spotting is normal. Discharge will change to a brownish color followed by yellow cream color that will continue for up to four to eight weeks. It is common for the brownish discharge to have a slight odor because it is old blood. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Diet:

You will continue with your regular diet.

Pain: Medication for pain will be prescribed for you after surgery. Do not take it more frequently than instructed.

Stool softener: Narcotic pain medications may cause constipation. A stool softener may be needed while taking these medications.

Nausea: Anti -nausea medication is not typically prescribed.

Activities:

Energy level: It is normal to have a decreased energy level after surgery. During the first week at home, you should minimize any strenuous activity. Once you settle into a normal routine at home, you will slowly begin to feel better. Walking around the house and taking short walks outside can help you get back to your normal energy level more quickly.

Showers: Showers are allowed within 24 hours after your surgery.

Climbing: Climbing stairs is permitted, but you may require some assistance when you first return home.

Lifting: For 4-6 weeks after your surgery you should not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk. This includes pushing objects such as a vacuum cleaner and vigorous exercise.

Driving: The reason you are asked not to drive after surgery is because you may be prescribed pain medications. Even after you stop taking pain medication; driving is restricted because you may not be able to make sudden movements due to discomforts from surgery.

Exercise: Exercise is important for a healthy lifestyle. You may begin normal physical activity within hours of surgery. Start with short walks and gradually increase the distance a nd length of time that you walk. To allow your body time to heal, you should not return to a more difficult exercise routine for 4 -6 weeks after your  surgery. Please talk to your doctor about when you can start exercising again.

Intercourse: No sexual activity for 8 weeks after surgery.

Work: Most patients ca n return to work between 4 -6 weeks after surgery.

Prepare a fruit pack by combining the pulp of an avocado, papaya and cucumber. Then add 2 teaspoons of cream or malai. Mix well to form a paste and apply all over the face. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. People with oily or combination skin can avoid adding cream, they can add multani mitti instead into the pack papaya: papaya fruit contains an enzyme called papain that helps to exfoliate the skin, and this makes way for new skin cells to emerge. Papaya also contains vitamin c. Choose a green papaya to make your face mask, papain is most concentrated in a green papaya. To make a papaya mask peel and slice the papaya put it in a blender to make a smooth paste apply it on your skin and leave it for 20 minutes? rinse it away with warm water. Any queries inform me.
