Ulcerative Colitis: Symptoms and Treatment

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Guwahati
Ulcerative Colitis: Symptoms and Treatment

This is a disease that affects the large intestine and the rectum. The Ulcerative Colitis refers to the inflammation in the innermost lining of the large intestine. The main function of the large intestine is to absorb water from indigestible food matter in the body before throwing away any waste. Hence, the large intestine is a vital part of our body. If left untreated, the disease increases risk of colon cancer.

Symptoms:

  1. Diarrhea with blood or pus: A person suffering from Ulcerative Colitis is likely to suffer from loose stools accompanied with blood or pus.
  2. Stomach pain and Cramping: In many cases, patients complain of severe stomach pain and cramping.
  3. Rectal pain: At times, many patients feel pain while sitting or even after a bowel movement.
  4. Bleeding from the rectum: Bleeding can be observed while passing stools.

The other complications leading to this disease are kidney stones, swelling of the colon, thickening of intestinal walls and blood infection.

Diagnosis:
This disease can be diagnosed by several methods. A simple stool test may be done to check out for bacteria and parasites. A blood test to check the level of C-reactive protein helps determine the inflation rate of the body. Endoscopy, colonoscopy, biopsy are some other methods of diagnosis.

Treatment

  1. Oral medication: Treatment involves drug therapy or surgery. The first step in treating Ulcerative Colitis will be an intake of anti-inflammatory drugs, but these may have a side effect. Another option is immune system suppressors, which help to bring down the inflammation by suppressing the immune system response. Antibiotics, anti-diarrheal medications, pain relievers are some of the additional drug supplements recommended by doctors.
  2. Surgery: Surgery plays an important role because this disease is pre-malignant in nature. Depending on the severity of the condition, the medical practitioner may advice surgery. The common methods of surgery are:
    1. Proctocolectomy and Ileostomy: Proctocolectomy involves removal of the colon in part or whole. Ileostomy is carried out by placing a special bag in the small intestine to collect waste from the body.
    2. Proctocolectomy and Ileo-anal: Ileo-anal pouch is a bag directly created the small intestine and connected to the anus, for diffusing the stools. As colon is removed Ulcerative Colitis cannot re-occur.

Precautions after surgery
It is very important that the patient takes healthy, sufficient and nutritious food so that bowel movement can be carried out with ease and zero strain. The patient has to restrict lifting of heavy grocery, mowing the lawn, any physical activity that can strain the abdomen and related areas.

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy

Hi, sexuality will be pleasurable and cherishing if enjoyed at right time and with right partner. Don't just engage in sex, try to concentrate on life and lead a loyal and healthy life. Have a goal. Be loyal to your partner. If this is done then there will be no fear of diseases. Try to calm down yet times with practice of masturbation.

I got married recently and I would like to have unprotected sex (not using condoms or copper t, pills by my wife) with my wife but I would like to have children after an year. Kindly suggest how can I make it?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
A sincere advice to you is that you use some method of contraception if you don't want pregnancy. Condoms and oral pills are highly advisable for newly wed couples. However, if you are not convinced then go in for using the safe period. In this , if the wife has regular periods then we advise the couple to have intercourse for 5 days after the periods stop and for 5 days before the expected day of periods.However, pregnancies have been reported within this time period also. Take care.

Hi, Kidney stones of size below 1 cm does not need any surgical intervention. Drink 3-4 litres of water per day. Take tab. Renali 1 tab. 3 times a day for 2-3 months. Drink tender coconut water and lemon juice once everyday. Consume raw banana stem mixed with curds. This helps in crushing the stone into smaller pieces which gets flushed out with urine.

Dea rfollow the remedies for 1 month and avoid A/C till then..: 1.Boil 1 to 2 liters of water and add a few drops of clove oil (or a large spoonful of cloves), 10-12 crushed mint leaves, and a few drops of eucalyptus oil (or 1/3 cup of eucalyptus leaves). Inhale the steam for 10-15 minutes. Continue this twice a day until congestion clears and then once a week to clear the phlegm that gets deposited in the sinuses. 2.Have 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger juice with 1 teaspoon of honey in it twice a day. 3.Do pranayam daily for 30 min. 4. Take warm water plain, or prepare it with cinnamon and black pepper. 5.Avoid cold, heavy, oily foods, cold drinks, chocolates, ice cream, cold water, etc. 6. Sleep while lying on one side and with a pillow beneath the head. This prevents the accumulation of mucus in the air passages and helps to avoid difficulties in breathing. 7. Revert back after 10 days for further management and medication.

Is it okay to take head bath when you have typhoid or temperature will increase? And does typhoid spread to other person's.

BAMS

Hi, It is better to avoid head bath when a person is suffering from typhoid. Regular bath is also not advised till the temparature comes to normal. Typhoid spreads from one person to other when a person uses the toilet used by an infected person without disinfecting it .

The smoking is definitely not good for him. You may need to take him to a sexologist and also pursue the foreplay angle further. His premature ejaculation could be due to various reasons and unless that is explored with a sexologist we would be merely speculating. There is however one thing that can be done, if your husband is cooperative. But you can help him build confidence in its possibility i.e. that if he attempts sex a second time after half an hour or so his ejaculation will be a little delayed and if that can be done even a third time, it will be further delayed. But you need to coax him that that is possible and very gently entice him both physically and emotionally to go for it. Another alternative is for you to stimulate yourself before the act and prime yourself until you are very close to an orgasmic experience and then have the intercourse.

PCOS is a illness where due to hormonal imbalance the lining of the uterus is not formed well and hence menses are scanty or the bleedibg occurs over many days. PCOS patients also do not ovulate regularly hence there is infertility. You need to be guided by an expert gynecologist for the treatment. Do not lose heart, you will conceive. Meanwhile you can reduce your weight if it is excess for your height.

Dear lybrate-user! do not worry about the masturbation, it will not do any harm, some may threaten you unwantedly. 1. Do not indulge in masturbation too much 2. Eat badam, cashew and fresh fruits more 3. Take milk everyday 4. Do kegel exercise 5. The dark spots are not due to masturbation. If you can upload the photo in private section we can able to treat you very properly. For pimples use whithhazel - homoepathy cream, you will be normal very soon. Thank you have a nice day
