Hi. You diagnosed it right friend. It was a anal fissure only. So prevent it's further course you should avoid spicy/oily/ junk food. Drink lot of water. Take any laxative if you are having constipation. For medications you can contact online as I do not prescribe medications on open forum.

I am 73 years old and suffering from urinary trouble. I have to go to urinate every 2 hours as a result of which I do not have sufficient sleep in the night.

Dear looking to your age mostly cause would be prostate enlargement. Ideally you need to see a urologist and be investigated properly. However for prostate one can try drugs like tamsulosin 0. 4 mg at bedtime which helps a lot of patients. At the same time make sure you are not constipated as it increases the urinary problems.

THERE may be chance of stone in gall bladder.and associate vomiting. Do tests usg upper bdomen, cbc,lft,blood sugar,fkt,urine r/m,stool r/m,stool c/s,. after tests can diagnosis you can take proper medicines. Take ORS liquid.

My brother is 23 years old. After so much check-ups, physicist said that there is little amount of pebbles-sized stone in his kidney. So tell me is it will become harmful in future? If yes, then what to eat and drink to fully clear his kidney internally and what to avoid in eating and drinking.

Plenty of fluids and less amount of salt in diet is universally helpful across all types of stones. Regular follow up with an usg 3 monthly is important to assess the stone, whether it can be continued to be managed medicinally or needs intervention.

Urinary Tract Infection - 5 Ways You Can Prevent it

DNB (Nephrology), MD - Medicine, MBBS
Nephrologist, Gurgaon
Urinary Tract Infection - 5 Ways You Can Prevent it

The structure responsible for production, transportation, storage and excretion of urine form the urinary tract. Kidney, ureters, bladder and urethra are structures involved in urine formation and excretion process. Kidney filters nearly 3 ounces of blood, removes waste materials every minute. When these get infected with entry of any micro organism or any other pathological condition, then the person gets urinary tract infection (UTI).

Causes and symptoms
Urinary tract infections are more common in women than men because of the small size of the urethra (4cms) and also because of the squatting position of voiding. Entry of organisms like bacteria, viruses and fungi are the major cause of UTI. The person may experience burning sensation and pain when voiding, fever is indicated when the infection has reached the kidneys or prostate glands in male. Other symptoms include pain in back, ribs, nausea and vomiting.

Preventive measures
Though antibiotics are used to treat the present infection there are increased chance of getting the recurrent infection. So it is best advised to follow the preventive measures to stay away safely from getting infected

  1. Drink plenty of water nearly 2- 3litres of water per day and urinate when you feel the need , don’t control or resist voiding when you feel the urge as this may give room for the organisms to grow well
  2. Urinate after sexual intercourse. change the birth control measures if UTI is a recurrent problem
  3. Wash front to back, wipe off thoroughly after emptying the bladder so as to prevent the entry of organisms into the urethra.
  4. Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes. Always prefer cotton inner garments and loose fitting clothes so that air entry keeps the area moist and free from bacteria.
  5. Cranberry juice works best and it is the natural treatment for bladder infections. Cranberries have a special substance that can avoid the entry of E.coli into the bladder, but it does not have much effect on recurrent UTI infections. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am 34 years old female. Three years back i was diagnosed with Grade 1 renal cell carcinoma. Neohron sparing surgery was performed. Six monthly checkups are done namely Ultrasound, xray and blood tests. All my reports are normal except RBC count this is showing reduced to around 4.0 to 4.4 million per cm since the surgery. Also ESR is slightly elevated. Hemoglobin has been normal throughout. MRI scan done after a year is also normal. Please suggest if this can have any indication? What could be the reason? Creatinine levels have been well within limits.

Well, since hemoglobin is normal, things are fine as last step of blood formation is from kidneys. And that is all fine. Esr can be increased in many situations like fever, bodyache. Its just a marker of inflammation. So no need to worry. All the best.

I am 33yr old female I have kidney stone what should I do.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
I am 33yr old female I have kidney stone what should I do.
Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG.

Going to bed at 10 pm only ensures that people with BPH get up twice in the night to pass urine, as against getting up only once if the bed time is postponed to 11/11.30 pm. Getting up twice in the night may cause loss of sleep after getting up the second time.

Anal fissure is due to passing of hard stool. You should avoid constipation. You should get your proctoscopy done under local anesthesia to confirm the diagnosis. Meanwhile you can apply Nitroglycerine ointment for local application.

I had a anal fissure one year ago. I took patanjali medicine. Now its fine, but sometimes I feel little prick in my anus for 1-2 days. Pls suggest me caution and permanent treatment for this.

Dear lybrate-user. If this problem is troubling you too frequently than the permanent treatment is a small surgery ie lateral sphincterotomy which will decrease the anal tone. It will stop the recurrence as the main cause of recurrence is increased anal tone and constipation. You can contact me if you have more queries.

I do not think antibiotics has anything to do with your symptoms of fatigue, weakness, etc. Although the disease itself may cause such symptoms. Pls maintain a proper diet and if needed you may take multivitamins.

Generally prostate related problems causing urinary dysfunction are diseases of elderly. You can get your ultrasound kub and urine analysis done to rule out cause of outlet obstruction it may be a stone or some kind of inflammation. If above are normal you can get psa checked. If it is prostatitis it can be treated by antibiotics under supervision of nephrologist, don't worry.

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
One condition whoch can cause similar complaints is diabetes insipidis. But it is quite rare. You might be having certain problems in the mouth which might be causing dryness of mouth which in turn might make you thirsty and cause more urination.
