I am having so many skin tags in my neck and upper chest area. They are developing day by day. And they are also itchy. What shall I do? How shall I stop them from spreading? Is it because of hypothyroid? Please reply.

Dermatologist, Delhi
Skin tags can be easily removed with a radio cautery. But skin tags are not generally itchy. So it would be better if you can consult a dermatologist in person.

Tips For A Smooth Recovery After Hernia Surgery!

Hernias are mostly treated by surgeries as definitive care. Post-operative period has become comfortable with the invention of minimal-invasive surgeries. Postoperative recovery is smoother and faster after laparoscopic and robotic surgeries.

Yes, the patient has to go for a surgery, if hernias spreads to quite an extent. In such cases, there are several steps that need to be taken as a part of the post-operative care for this surgery. Hernia surgery is quite common in today’s medical world. All you need to have is a good medical practitioner who would operate on you and you need to have complete trust on the expert and their methods of treatment. There are several ways to take care of yourself after the surgery. Some of these are explained below.

  1. Diet includes liquids at first: During the first few days after the surgery, the patient is offered only liquids. Due to the anaesthesia, it becomes difficult to consume solid food initially. Only when the doctor sees that the patient is fit enough to consume solids, will solid foods be given to the patient. This is also an indicator that the patient is recovering well and might be let off soon from the hospital.
  2. Patient is discharged only after anaesthetic effects are completely gone: For some time after the surgery, the patient is under the effects of the anaesthesia. If it is a local one then it would take a few hours for its effects to completely subside. But if it is a complex one, then it might take some more time for its effects to completely withdraw. Only after the patient is completely out of the effects of anaesthesia, will he/she be allowed a discharge.
  3. Avoid headache: Patients are made to lie down flat on their back for at least a few hours after the surgery so that they do not experience anaesthetic headache. This can be painful and unbearable at times. But this can be avoided if the patient lies down for quite some time till the effects of it have worn off.
  4. Shower: Usually there is a restriction in getting the operated area wet. But a shower can be carefully taken after at least two days of the operation.

Thus, these are some of the most important post-operative hernia surgery care tips. If you adhere to these points, your recovery process will speed up and it would prevent you from getting affected by any other health problems in your recovery period.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 64 year old with constipation problem for last more than 5 years. My thyroid test is ok and I take one tablet of 100mcg eltroxin daily. Also I take one tab each of covomlo and riometod500 to keep my blood pressure and sugar level in range. I am vegetarian, teetotaler and non-smoker. I also take fibre rich food in my meals daily. I have found 'Kayam" helpful in getting the bowel movement but do not want to be dependent on it for life. I have tried Softovac and it was also helpful in removing the constipation so long as I take it. What other measure or medicine you suggest for permanently curing me from constipation. I live a active life with morning and evening walk and moving during the day for the work.

If anybody wants CURE for their problems ,we have to identify the root causes, till then temporary measures as you tried some causes of constipation in the age group above 60yrs Factors that predispose older adults to constipation are not a direct consequence of normal aging, though are often closely associated with it. A majority of people over age 65 take one or more medications that affect nerve conduction and smooth muscle function, such as opioids, anticholinergics, NSAIDs, calcium-channel antagonists and calcium supplements. Other factors that increase the risk of constipation in older patients include low-fiber diets, limited fluid intake, impaired mobility and cognitive disorders. Studies have also shown that distinct physiological changes affecting colonic motility can occur in older people. They include myenteric dysfunction, increased collagen deposits in the left colon, reduced inhibitory nerve input to the colon's muscle layer and increased binding of plasma endorphins to intestinal receptors. Diminished anal sphincter pressure or degeneration of the internal anal sphincter, loss of rectal wall elasticity, and, in older women, an increased degree of perineal descent also are well documented.

Use parsley and jeera seeds while cooking vegetables. Please make it a point that too bitter, too sour, salty, hot, pungent, dry and burning foods are to be avoided as such foods cause distress, misery and disease. Thus deep frying foods or foods taking lot of oil as in gravy vegetables, salty foods, spicy foods, long preserved, frozen foods, junk foods like pizzas burgers chips are to be avoided. Drink two glasses of warm water on empty stomach every morning about 30 minutes before breakfast. Try it! This works amazingly! In addition, walk fast for 30 minutes every day or engage in some service every day. Please also do meditation regularly and sincerely which has been scientifically proved for overall health.

You are in the wrong track. If you must have dealings with a sex worker use a condom. Anyway avoid such relations. If you are a straight person get a living together partner.in certain cities certified sex workers are available.
