Hi. It would have helped you better if you had mentioned the surgery you underwent. Regarding weakness, you can take supplements like protein ☓, resource powder for short duration of time. Take care.

Hello, covid response varies from person to person and as it is a novel virus it response is highly unpredictable. But all said in post bypass heart surgery patient after 31/2 years, if otherwise was doing well with no other health conditions with normal heart function should have recovery and survival same as any other individual of same age. Hope this help.

Hello sir, my father has undergone angiogram on 26th of this month and it resulted in 100% blockages and told to take bypass surgery. We took 5 opinions and most of them suggested to continue medicine rather surgery which is of high risk factor. Also said that they won't assure of patients recovery. So am trying for other choices. My fathers hba1c is resulted 10.1.

Know More About Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery Through Brain!

The human skull is composed of several plates and pieces of bones. The roof of the skull is the top of your head. The base of the skull is, however, a complex area. It consists of 5 bones. These bones are also linked to your eye socket, the cavity of the nose, the sinuses and the bones of the inner ear. Surgery through the skull base can be quite complicated as quite a few nerves, blood vessels and opening of the spinal cord pass through this region.

When does Endoscopic Skull Based Surgery become necessary?
An endoscopic skull based surgery is performed to remove tumours of the brain. The tumour might be benign or malignant - this procedure is effective against both. This surgery can also be performed to cure any abnormality on the underside of the brain, the upper vertebrae of the spinal cord or the base of the skull.

Other conditions that may necessitate an endoscopic skull base surgery are -
Cysts in the brain
Swelling caused by infections
• Pituitary tumours
Meningioma
• Chordomas
Trigeminal neuralgia
• Cerebrospinal fluid fistulas
• Cerebral aneurysm

What to expect during this Surgery?
Since the base of the skull is a complicated region, surgery requires a delicate approach. That is why endoscopy is used. It is a minimally invasive procedure.
Right before the surgery, you will be put under general anaesthesia. Your skull has two natural openings- the nose and the mouth. Usually, the surgeon inserts the minute surgical instruments through the nose or the mouth. Sometimes, a tiny hole is drilled right above the eyebrows. A tiny camera mounted on a lighted tube will be led into your brain through the cavity that will send a live feed from the inside. This will direct the surgeons who will gently remove the growth or fix the abnormalities.
A team of doctors with different specializations such as ENT, radiology, neurosurgery come together to perform this surgery.

Complementary Procedures -
Depending on the kind of tumour being removed or the stage it was detected in, you might have to undergo any of the following in addition to endoscopic surgery-
Chemotherapy
• Radiation
• Particle Therapy
• Proton Beam Therapy

Post Surgery Care -
After the surgery, you will have to stay in the clinic or hospital for a number of days where your progress will be constantly monitored. You will require therapy and undergo MRI scans.
Endoscopic skull base surgery is very effective in dealing with tumours and abnormalities of the brain or the upper spinal cord. Keep your family and friends around you during the recovery phase as their love and support will help you get back to your normal lifestyle in no time.

My father is undergoing dialysis (thrice a week). He has heart blocks and having pain very often. His age is 66 and weighs around 108 kgs. Doctors have taken angiogram and told that the vessels were shrink and it is not a good idea to do angioplasty or bypass for him since he is also undergoing dialysis. Can you please help if we cure his blockage with ayurveda treatment?

1.your patient is already on dialysis, his kidneys are not functioning to take nitrogen load of ayurvedic treatment. 2. I do sympathize with your plight ,but all can be done is to put him on few blood thinners and prevent further plaque buildup. 3. Reviewing reports with a cardiologist once may help manage his pain atleast.

Regarding how long you will have to take the medications- you will need to speak with the Dr. who prescribed them since he would have examined and prescribed accordingly. And just for 2 days there won't be any effects on your lasik surgery outcome do continue your lasik medications as advised. Do make sure you have informed your own lasik surgeon also about these medications.
