You may be suffering from piles. Avoid constipation and straining during defecation. Avoid non-veg, spicy and junk food. Take plenty of fluids and fibre. In case it continues like this in spite of normal bowels motions, please consult a surgeon. Thanks.

Hello, take berberis vulgaris q, 15 drops with water thrice daily. Take cholesterinum 3x, 2 tabs twice daily. Home remedies:- 1. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar stops the liver from making cholesterol that is responsible for forming the most common type of gallstones. It also plays a key role in dissolving gallstones and alleviating pain. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. Drink it whenever you have a gallstone attack. This will significantly ease the pain within 15 minutes. You can add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of lemon juice to a glass of warm water. Drink it on an empty stomach in the morning. Doing this regularly for weeks can dissolve gallstones and prevent pain. 2. Pears can also provide relief from gallstone pain and other symptoms. The compound pectin present in pears helps soften cholesterol-filled gallstones, which in turn get flushed out of your body easily. Mix half a glass of pear juice with half a glass of hot water. Mix in two tablespoons of honey. Drink this juice three times a day for two weeks. Peel and de-seed some pears. Cut the pears in small pieces and cook them in water for about 20 minutes. Eat a bowl of the warm cooked pears twice daily for two weeks. All of the following are healthy foods for your gallbladder, as well as the rest of your body:- fresh fruits and vegetables whole grains (whole-wheat bread, brown rice, oats, bran cereal) lean meat, poultry, and fish low-fat dairy products.

Hello, just the mere presence of stone in gall bladder is not an indication for surgery. It depends wheather the patient is having pain due to stones or someother reason like gastritis etc. Only if the pain abdomen is due to stones in gall bladder it calls foe surgery. Usg abd is a good option to know if the gall bladder shows sogns of infection then its an indication for surgery. Hope this answer throwa some light.

Dear Sir/Madam, I am 65 yr old lady and. I am suffering from osteoporosis and I had undergone Kyphoplasty Surgery where cement was injected into my back bone. I could not get up on my own. I was shouting in pain due to the problem and its slightly more than a year after the surgery and I am able to perform all activities except sitting down on the floor. I am using a chair to sit upon to pass my motion. I am used to sit in the Indian style latrine for motion and now sitting in the stool to pass motion is not making me comfortable to pass motion. I am unable to pass motion without allopathic laxative I am using allopathic laxative for the past 10 months to pass motion. I am also taking pain killers and other allopathic medicines for my osteoporosis issue. I am afraid that the allopathic laxative will be harmful in the long run if I continue taking them. Kindly suggest me a ayurvedic, home. Unani laxative where by I will be able to pass motion sitting on the stool. I also have the issue of gas formation. Also I cannot sit down on the floor, can you suggest some method by which I will be able to sit on the floor and get up on my own. Also my knee joint has become kind of stiff due to not folding and sitting for a long time after my surgery. Your suggestion for the same will be appreciated.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at your height and weight you have a bmi of 32.14 kg / m2, signifying grade 1 obesity. High levels of liver enzymes may be due to being obese. There is possibility of non alcoholic fatty liver. (provided you do not indulge in alcoholic drinks). As regards the blood glucose levels & hba1c% it is clear that you have t2 diabetes. Cirrhosis of liver is a disease that occurs very late in the course of liver conditions. Now the remedy is to reduce weight (ideal body weight = 67 kgs). That will help you control both the conditions fairly rapidly and quite well. You need to look at your diet and daily food intake, plus exercise at least 1 hour a day. Plus avoid smoking and alcohol completely. (if indulged). Do not panic at all. You can remain absolutely fit and healthy by taking few simple corrective steps as mentioned above. Thanks.

Only stool softener may not help you alone. Please get proper treatment from a gastro or general surgeon for proper medication. Meanwhile, avoid spicy food, hard drinks, high fibrous diet, plenty of water, seize bath with betadine solution.
