If the medicines are prescribed by your gynaecologist you can continue. Any doubts please reconfirm with your gynaecologist. O r take a second opinion.

What will be the condition of a patient after distal gastrectomy due to his gastric carcinoma.

What will be the condition of a patient after distal gastrectomy due to his gastric carcinoma.
Complications of post-gastrectomy syndrome include anemia as a result of vitamin b12 or iron malabsorption and osteoporosis. These problems generally occur months or even years after gastric surgery. Vitamin b12 malabsorption occurs when a protein known as intrinsic factor is either not produced by the stomach (this is a condition called pernicious anemia) or when the proximal stomach is resected (the portion of the stomach that produces intrinsic factor). In either case, that absence of intrinsic factor leads to the poor absorption of vitamin b12. Under normal circumstances intrinsic factor binds to vitamin b12 and assists with the absorption of this vitamin in the lower portion of the small bowel. When vitamin b12 is poorly absorbed, anemia and, in some cases, poor nerve function can occur. This generally does not happen for several years because vitamin b12 is stored in large amounts in the liver. Iron deficiency anemia develops because removal of the stomach often leads to a marked decrease in the production of gastric acid. This acid is necessary to convert dietary iron to a form that is more readily absorbed in the duodenum. Anemia usually does not occur for a few years after gastric surgery because iron is stored in moderately large amounts in the bone marrow, where red blood cells are produced. Osteoporosis develops as a result of poor calcium absorption, another problem that occurs after gastric surgery.

What is the treatment for stone in gallbladder. Is there a operation to take out the stone from gall bladder without removing the gall bladder and the size is 24mm.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

Yes, certainly it can be reduced/removed naturally with medicines only. Gall bladder gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. This leads to an imbalance of the acid-alkali balance in the body which causes the cholesterol to precipitate in the gall bladder leading to stone formation. Over time, these may get infected and lead to an acute inflammation, pain, fever etc. A stone may move ahead into a narrow passage or the duct and get stuck leading to severe agony. The safest and way that should be used to remove gall stones is removing it naturally, not just remove gall stones from gall bladder but also remove the cause of gall stones. There is no operation as such in which stones can be removed without removing gall bladder. They just remove gall bladder in operations and that can cause big digestion and stomach related problems. You must search about our ssohm treatment which helps in removing stones naturally without any operation/surgery.
