Dear , since your child is almost 7 months old, there is no chance that his pda will close spontaneously. Also, you have mentioned some defect in his bicuspid valve. If left untreated, both may have serious repurcussions. You must consult a paediatric cardiologist and proceed according to his advice. The treatment may involve surgery or a interventional cardiologist.

Umbilical cord separates at 1 week of age. It is quite normal to notice some discharge for 1-2 days after this. It will dry and stop with normal cleansing. You can wipe with warm water and clean cloth. If it persists after 2 days, it might indicate umbilical granuloma which is scar tissue. Antibiotic powder and ointment is not necessary.

I hav 2 small kids 5 and 3 years of age and am a homemaker. I am having CTS in both hands for last 1.5 yrs. Medications couldn't help and Drs hav suggested for surgery. Is it open or endoscopic? R there any alternative like physiotherapy or home or ayurveda? How long does it take to recover in a surgery?

Hi first of all, the previous history of bell's palsy was already there and right now. Both hands are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, it is always better to get investigated thoroughly for neulogical problems why it occurs recurrently at different places, treatment for cts is surgical which includes decompression of the carpal tunnel. Postoperative recovery depends subjectively on how patient is responding. It does require post operative physiotherapy. But as per my opinion so you will require thorough investigations prior going out with the surgery. Regards.

If he remained fully conscious and did not vomited or any other symptoms then you should not worry much and just be cautious of any further occurences. You also can give one dose of homoeopathic medicine Arnica montana 200. It is best for removing bad effects of injury.

Hello everybody. I'm Dr Pulkit Nandwani. I'm a consultant gynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon here at Saroj Medical Institute Rohini. Today, I would like to share some information with you about fibroids.

Fibroids are becoming increasingly common these days. They usually occur in the age group of 30 to 40 years of women but can occur at any age group usually at the age group of 30 to 40years.

Now what are fibroids?

Fibroids are usually noncancerous just an overgrowth of the muscle tissue of the uterus. Fibroids are also called myomas or leiomyomas. Now these fibroids can be located anywhere in the uterus. They can be either in the muscle tissue of the uterus or even in the ovaries or from a stem hanging inside the uterus or out of the wall of the uterus by hanging by a stem. The size and location number of fibroids vary a lot and according to them the symptoms depend.

Now what are the symptoms of fibroids?

The symptoms of fibroids depend on where the situation where the fibroid is located, how big it is and how many numbers of fibroids are located. The symptoms can be they usually cause the change in menstruation. The patient usually experiences heavy bleeding with painful cramping and now instead of monthly bleeds. The bleed may come at irregular intervals and at least twice or thrice in a month. There can be pain during bleeding. Other than the painful bleeding, the fibroid can also result in various symptoms. Because of the size and the weight of the fibroid, it might press on the urinary bladder and the patient might experience frequency of urination even pain during urination. Same if it's at the back of the uterus, it might press on the anus and cause painful deification obtained while passing motions. Because of the heavy bleeding patient might land up with low hemoglobin and having anemia and generalized symptoms of anemia like the fatigue, the weakness, loss of strength, loss of stamina, all these are the  symptoms of fibroids. Just a pain in the lower abdomen can also be the manifestation of fibroid.

Fibroid can also cause infertility. Patient might find difficulty in conceiving or there are chances if the patient conceives if the fibroid is located inside the lining of the uterus it might cause increased chances of miscarriages. There might be abortions then but the good thing is that fibroids rarely cause cancer. It might twist on itself, cause severe pain and but it rarely causes cancer and grows over a period of time. It slowly grows over a period of time, sudden growth is a matter of danger sign.

Now, what are the treatments available for fibroid?

Fibroid if it is asymptomatic the patient is comfortable it was just the routine diagnosis, need not require any treatment at all but usually fibroids cause bleeding problems. So the most common treatment that we employ is starting the patient on medical treatment, a number of hormonal pills come which regulate the hormones inside the body of the uterus and limits the blood flow of the patient and the patient remains comfortable. If medical treatment is either not successful or by the location of the fibroid we already know that medical treatment will not work as in case if the fibroid is coming inside the lining of the uterus. In those cases the fibroid has to be removed surgically for the fibroid is usually done. If it is coming inside the lining of the uterus even if it is very small or a big fibroid is obstructing, the uterus lining causing pressure symptoms. In that case surgery has to be done. Now for surgery also there are two to three types of surgery which can be done.

  • If so patient is young, she has to conceive again and family is not completed, we try to remove only the fibroid. It is known as myomectomy.
  • If the patient is elderly age family is completed, it caues a lot of problproblemshere are multiple fibroids, in that case, the modality of treatment is a one-stop treatment in which we prefer to remove the whole uterus in which case it is known as hysterectomy.
  • Regularly total laparoscopic hysterectomy fully by laparoscopy is done routinely at the hospital at Saroj Medical Institute for fibroids.

So this is much for fibroid for today. If you have any query you can contact me at lybrate. I am Dr. Pulkit Nandwani or you can even take a consultation appointment at Saroj Medical Institute Rohini, Delhi.

Thank you.

Hi Doctor, My 4 years son has fever since six days. It was at 104.6 the first three days (lowest being 100, during that time) now the maximum has come down to 101 since day before but its still there. He also has sore throat and vomits once everyday (either morning after having milk or post dinner after medicines). Please advice if we should start with the antibiotics. What should be the line of action. Thanks.

Since temp is coming down without antibiotic and child is taking diet and is not much down, you may continue medicine. It had been better if you have mentioned medicines for proper advice. Even then it is suggested to consult doctor since child is having sore throat too. Vomiting once is not so significant.

Punishment can be done even without beating like not talking to him for sometime. Not providing what he likes too much etc. Similarly you must reward him if he obeys your advice.

Dear lybrate user, its always good to start on your fitness program. Every step matters. Its never too late. Aim should be to do intensive cardio/aerobic exercises for at least an hour every day. Regular mat based yoga is too slow/light to give any significant weight loss benefits. Better to go to gym and do your own exercises. Or join zumba or aerobic classes. If you are going to gym you can follow following routine. #a. 5 minutes light warm up with side jumps and stretches. #b. 10 minutes treadmill with speeds from 6-8 kmph #c. 10 mins abs and stretches. #d. 10 mins cycling with speeds from 25-32 kmph. #e 5 mins. Light weights and dumbells #6.10 mins treadmill #7.10 mins stretches and abs crunches. Stay fit. Stay healthy. Stay happy.

My child is one and a half year old and he does not eat anything and only drinks milk. And also bites everyone.
Teething may be the cause behind his biting problem. Start giving him some crunchy food like piece of apple or some teething toy. Give him every home made food which you eat seeing you eating will help him to pick eating habit.

Above report is more in favor of Iron/ multi nutritional deficiency anemia. Blood transfusion increases Hb temporarily. Intermittent fall of Hb may be due to interrupted treatment and lack of nutritional diet as indicated by constant wt at 9 kg. To improve his wt and normalize Hb, give him Iron, B Complex, Vit C and other micro nutrients and continue at least for about 3 months after Hb comes to normal, add oil/ ghee in his nutritious diet for wt gain.
