What To Expect Post An Enlarged Prostate Surgery?

Enlarged prostate surgery is a very common type of surgery that many have to undergo nowadays. An enlarged prostate causes many health problems including urinary tract obstructions and urinary tract infections. It may also lead to the passing of blood via urine. Thus, enlarged prostate must be treated as soon as possible as neglect may lead to prostate cancer and its associated health issues. There are various types of prostate surgeries that a doctor performs on his/her patients. However, of late, radical prostatectomy is the most popular of them all.

What is Radical Prostatectomy?

This process can be handled in two ways. Firstly, the prostate can be reached through an incision in the abdomen. This would help the doctor work with precision and carefully avoid all the other nerves and muscles in the area the operation take places. The prostate is examined and any nodule or lymph formed over it is carefully removed. The advantage of this surgery is that the patient is less likely to suffer from any erectile problems post- surgery. The second option would be to make an incision between the scrotum and the anus. This process is best for those who are obese. The surgery is performed quickly and there is less loss of blood. Furthermore, the healing time is less too.

How To Recover From The Surgery?

Like most other prostate operations, even in radical prostatectomy, you would have to wear a catheter till you recover completely. For a few days post the surgery your urine would be collected through a urine bag attached to the catheter. One might feel a little sore in his/her genitals after the surgery, but that is quite normal to occur. The soreness is caused due to the surgery and the incisions made and would heal in a matter of a few days. Interestingly, since the urethra plays an important role in this surgery, the catheter has to be in place for at least two to three weeks but the patient can be discharged after a two to three night stay at the hospital. It is advised that the patient takes ample rest. But this does not mean all rest and no work. In fact, it is seen that patients can walk a little and even go back to a normal diet within a week to ten days of the operation. But regular checkups, till the urethra is healed, are compulsory.

Hence, these are some of the recovery procedures after an enlarged prostate surgery. Such surgeries are quite common and heal quickly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Breast Enlargement - Know Its Ayurvedic Remedies!!

Breast Enlargement - Know Its Ayurvedic Remedies!!

Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic procedures undergone by women across the world. Though small or petite breasts do not affect the overall health of a woman, they can make the woman feel dissatisfied with her appearance. Surgery is not the only way for a woman to enlarge her breasts. Ayurveda has a number of remedies that can boost the development of breast tissue and make them larger. Unlike cosmetic surgery, these remedies do not need any recovery time, leave no scars and have negligible side effects. However, one must be patient and follow treatment regularly as the results may be slower to develop.

Some effective ayurvedic remedies for breast augmentation include:

  1. Massage: A woman’s breasts are composed of adipose tissue and glandular tissue. Massaging the breasts stimulates both these tissues. It also increases lymph circulation and boosts oxytocin levels. Sesame oil is ideal for breast massages. This oil is rich in calcium, iron, proteins and phosphorus. Alternatively, you could also use an ayurvedic massage cream. Apply a little oil or cream on your hands and massage the breasts with circular strokes for 5- 10 minutes, twice a day.
  2. Fenugreek Breast Mask: The phytoestrogen found in fenugreek increases the prolactin levels in a woman’s body. Additionally, fenugreek also stimulates the mammary glands thus encouraging the breast tissue to expand. To use this herb to increase breast size, massage a paste of fenugreek powder and water into your breasts and leave for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Alternatively, you could massage your breasts with fenugreek extract or get fenugreek supplements.
  3. Fennel seeds and cod liver oil: The flavonoids in fennel seeds stimulate the growth of breast tissue. To benefit from this, heat cod liver oil and add fennel seeds when hot. Once the seeds turn red, strain the oil and allow it to cool. Massage this oil into the breasts and leave for half an hour. Ideally, you should massage your breasts with this oil every day.
  4. Red Lentil Paste: Lentils are a rich source of oestrogen that can stimulate breast development. To use this home remedy to enlarge your breasts, soak red lentils in water for a few hours and grind to a fine paste. Apply this paste on the breasts and leave for an hour or until it has dried before rinsing it off. There is no need to massage this paste into the skin. Along with augmenting breasts, this also helps create firm breasts.
  5. Breast augmentation exercises: Certain exercises can also help naturally enlarge your breasts. One of the simplest exercises for breast augmentation involves standing with your feet apart and swinging your arms clockwise and anticlockwise. Repeat this exercise ten times in the morning and evening.

Though alopathy offers a range of solutions for our day to day problems, still trying Ayurvedic remedies is a better idea at times. A full bodied penis is one of the most important elements that helps in having a more than satisfactory sexual encounter or experience. Not having a penis that is of the desired size can actually hamper your relationship and lead to a variety of problems in bed, thus giving rise to a number of related ailments and even a lack of interest in sex.

Oil Massages: When Sanda Oil is rubbed on penis it is absorbed into the blood stream and increases the blood circulation and expand the interior cavity of the penis. As a result it causes your erectile chamber (corpora cavernosa) to expand. Sanda oil is not available in its pure form and simple branding of this name is not useful. Sanda is a wild reptile, which was boiled in ancient times and fats taken out to make Sanda oil. This is not possible now-a-days. Instead various 'Tailas' (penis massage oils) prepared by valuable herbs and vegetable oils, such as Seasame oil should be used. Taila using Mall (purified arsenic) and egg are also effective. Preparation and use should be as per instructions on classic Ayurveda. Taila is selected as per history, present condition and duration of pt. specific problem, by Ayurveda doctor.

Herbs: Ashwagadha and Sitopiladi can help in rejuvenating the tissues that are present in this part of the body so that there is better growth of the penis. Also, one can use a concoction that consists of cistanche, which has powerful antioxidants, as well as Cuscuta which helps in the production of precious nitric oxide for the overall development of the organ. This concoction can also contain deer antler which blocks the action of shrinkage due to aging and increases the testosterone and HGH levels in the body for better organ growth, as well as ginseng, which can help in bringing about better blood circulation. With the help of these herbs and the concoctions available with these elements, one will see a gradual increase in the size of the penis.

Medicines: The various medicines available also include vitamins and essential nutrients that come together with the herbs to create better muscle growth for the penis to grow larger.

Abstinence: In order to achieve a long, thick and firm penis that stays erect until the end of the sexual activity, one must ensure that smoking and excessive drinking should not be a part of one's lifestyle. Many patients who suffer from a small penis size and related problems, are often asked to stay away from these substances so as to get a healthier size and erection.

Whole milk, milk products, butter all of these are pretty helpful in increasing breast size. Whole milk is not low-fat milk, but rich in fat. Remember breast tissues are made of fat. You get the fat from fatty food for breasts!

Causes Of Enlarged Prostate!

Causes Of Enlarged Prostate!

The problem of an enlarged prostate or benign prostate hyperplasia is a very common occurrence as you grow older. It's known to strike men above the age of 50, with more than 50% of men after the age of 60, having this complaint.

Causes of enlarged prostate

A non-cancerous condition, enlarged prostate makes the passing of urine from the bladder through the urethra difficult. The multiplication of the prostate cells causes an enlargement of the gland, leading to a buildup of pressure on the urethra, affecting the discharge of urine from the body. The narrowing of the urethra, due to this benign condition, forces the bladder to contract more vigorously so as to push urine out of the body.

As time passes, the muscles of the bladder get significantly affected, causing them to become extremely sensitive, thicker and stronger. As a consequence, the bladder begins to contract, even if the amount of urine in the organ is negligible, causing episodes of frequent urination. Gradually, the bladder fails to completely empty itself of urine due to the constriction of the urethra. This can give rise to a number of health problems including the formation of bladder stones, urinary tract infections, blood in the urine and so on.


How can you identify the signs of the condition?

Signs of enlarged prostate are very easy to identify and include:

- A slow or weak urine flow
- Difficulty in initiating urination
- Instances of frequent urination
- A feeling of not completely emptying one's bladder
- Frequent urination during the night
- Exerting a lot to urinate
- Instances of dribbling
- Urgency to pass urine
- A feeling of urinating again minutes after doing so
- Urination that starts and stops

To start this exercise, you will retrieve the erect phase by sitting on a chair edge. Hence, hold a towel over the penis head, increase the penis head, and hold it for three or five seconds. You should do three or five sets with five to ten reps. If you feel stronger, you can rise up the resistance by wet towel, or by a larger towel over the penis head. Before you start an exercise, you can warm up by using a warm cloth with warm water and squeeze it correctly.

Does size truly matter? what is the size of a big penis and do most guys have big penises? these are some questions that run through most men's minds. For men, a big penis is an ego boost and increases confidence in satisfying their partner. Read on to find out the ideal size of a big penis...


 how to measure penis:
For an erect penis, the measurement is from the base of the shaft to the tip of the penis. As for a flaccid penis, measure it soon after undressing, because the uneven temperature can distort your measurement.
 
 don't judge based on flaccid penis:
Never correspond the length of the flaccid penis to the length of the erect penis, because at times the small flaccid penis can grow much longer and vice versa.

 penis size depends on:
Your penis size depends on arousal level, time of day, room temperature, the frequency of sexual activity, and reliability of measurement.

 penis size:
The documented average size of an erect penis can go up to 6 inches while a flaccid penis can range from 3.5 to 3.9 inches. If an erect penis is less than 3 inches it is medically known as a micropenis.

 sexual experience:
Instead of measuring your penis, find the g-spot and toy with your partner's erogenous spots. Sufficient foreplay and arousal are key to the female orgasm.

Lymphedema - Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer Surgery!

Lymphedema - Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer Surgery!

Lymphedema is a condition that typically affects the arms and legs. The most common cause of this condition is damage to the lymph nodes or their removal as part of a cancer treatment program. There is no known cure for this condition. However, surgeries such as Vascularized lymph node transfer surgery may help deal with it better.

Vascularized lymph node transfer surgery involves replacing the affected lymph nodes with healthy lymph nodes from other parts of the body. This allows blood to flow more easily and restores or augments the lymphatic drainage system. In most cases, the healthy lymph nodes are harvested from the patient’s groin. This procedure is relatively new, and its limits are still being explored by doctors. In cases of breast cancer that causes lymphedema in the upper limbs, this procedure may be performed along with breast reconstruction.

To be a viable candidate for this procedure the patient must have maximized control over lymphedema through other forms of lymphedema therapy. This therapy will need to be restarted after the surgery to ensure good results. The lymphedema diagnosis should also be less than 5 years old such that the patient’s lymphedema is in its early stages.

As with any other surgical procedure, there are certain risks associated with this procedure. These can include

  1. Reaction to anesthesia
  2. Bleeding
  3. Infection
  4. Scarring at the site and poor healing
  5. Damage to adjacent blood vessels
  6. Nerve damage that can cause a temporary loss of sensation
  7. Muscle weakness
  8. Numbness ta the sites from where healthy lymph nodes were harvested
  9. Risk of Lymphedema in the area where the lymph nodes were harvested from

After the surgery, the patient will need to keep pressure off the site where the lymph nodes have been transferred. The surgery site may be bandaged but compression garments will not need to be worn. On being discharged the patient may resume normal activities such as driving and work. High-intensity exercises that involve the use of the operated limb should be avoided for at least a month after the surgery. Compression garments should not be used until recommended by the doctor or a minimum of 2 weeks post-surgery. They will also need to schedule review consultations with the doctor. The schedule followed usually involves check-ups after 2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Changes You Have To Make When Suffering From An Enlarged Prostate!

Changes You Have To Make When Suffering From An Enlarged Prostate!

It can be frustrating suffering from enlarged prostate. When you are suffering from the condition one thing for sure is that you need to make a number of changes in your life. Some of these changes include:

Reduce your fluid intake

To reduce the number of times that you have to go to the bathroom, you need to reduce your fluid intake. As rule of thumb, you shouldn't take any water before going to bed. You also shouldn't take coffee or beer before going to bed. Even when you avoid the fluids it's common to feel the urge to urinate. When you are in the bathroom, you should try "double voiding." This is where you urinate, relax, then wait for a moment then resume your urination. Doing this ensures that you empty your bladder at once thus not requiring you to go to the bathroom a second time.

Cold weather is attributed to the need for regular urination. You should keep your house warm. You do this by staying warm. Ensure that your house is warm by installing furnaces and other heating units. Also, avoid regularly going out at night in cold weather.

Watch the food that you eat:

Experts report that the food you take can make or break your prostate. When you are suffering from enlarged prostate you need to avoid the food that would worsen the condition. Some of the food you need to stay away from include:

Red meat and processed meat: Meat that isn't properly done has been shown to contain high levels of heterocyclic amines that are carcinogenic and worsen your enlarged prostate. To be on the safe side you should avoid foods such as sausage, beef, hot dogs, lunch meats, pork, and others.

Daily and calcium: A research study published by the Journal of nutrition, drinking whole milk increases the progression of fatal prostate cancer. To keep your condition in check you should avoid taking plenty of milk. If you have to take it, you should stick to fat-free milk. To be on the safe side you should take salmon, sesame seeds, bell peppers, tomatoes, avocados, tofu, and vegetables.

Engage in exercises

If you have never exercised before, now it's the time to start as experts have reported that doing so relieves nervousness thus you are able to urinate without any problems. Exercising also relieves stress. The cool thing is that you don't have to engage in strenuous exercises to reap the benefits. Simple exercises such as walking are enough.
