Appendix, the small finger-shaped organ on the right side of the abdomen is a silent killer. Most of us are not familiar with it as it doesn’t play any role in the body functionalities and can make you suffer anytime.

Causes:


Blockage in the appendix is normally formed by a small piece of stool, a foreign body or sometimes by worms. As a result of the blockage, the appendix becomes inflamed and infected. If the inflammation continues without treatment, the appendix can rupture. This might later turn into some severe infections and health problems.

Major symptoms are:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

With an early operation, the chance of death from appendicitis is very low. But without surgery or taking proper antibiotics, people may die. 

Patients can usually leave the hospital in one to three days after the surgery, and recovery is usually quick and complete. However, older people often take a longer time to recover. There are other ways of treatments like; Antibiotics, Draining the Abscess, Pain relievers, IV fluids, liquid diets, etc. 


Prevention


There are no proven prevention methods for appendicitis. But we can lower the risk by controlling the diet. This is the best possible way available. Researchers found that people having a luxury fiber diet are free from the threats of appendicitis. 

Maintaining a food habit that includes fruits, vegetables, lentils, split peas, beans, and other legumes, oatmeal, brown rice, whole wheat, and other whole grains can help keep issues related to appendicitis at bay.

Hemorrhoid Treatment: How to get rid of Hemorrhoids

Piles (or Hemorrhoids) are one of the best-described diseases in medical history. The oldest, credible descriptions of haemorrhoids date back to 1500 BCE in Mesopotamia. But there are even older records in Indian and Chinese literature, while we do not know accurately how old these are.

Hemorrhoids are enlarged, congested veins just under the surface tissue of your anus (the opening of your bowel) or your rectum (the last part of your bowel). They are often described as varicose veins formed in the lower rectum or around the outside of the anus. The term when used in a clinical sense, refers to the downward displacement or internal disruption of the vascular-rich connective tissue cushions located within the anal canal.

The rectum is the last part of the bowel that leads to the anal canal (the opening at the end of the bowel) where fecal matter leaves the body. Everyone has haemorrhoidal tissue within the anal canal and perianal area (area of the body surrounding the anus) that’s made up of blood vessels, connective tissue, and some muscle. These “anal cushions” act as a stop in the back passage, just like the tap washers. They don’t always become enlarged or distended or otherwise symptomatic, but we use the term for symptomatic or pathologic haemorrhoids. Internal haemorrhoids are located in the upper part of the anal canal (above a mucosal fold called the dentate line or pectinate line), and external, located below.

Internal hemorrhoids develop within the rectum and are characterised by bleeding and varying degrees of prolapse, and may be followed by pain, itching, mucus discharge, and faecal seepage. External haemorrhoids usually only give major symptoms when they thrombose(blood clots inside them ) and are then very painful.

Hemorrhoids (Piles) - Treatments


The treatment of piles depends on the type of symptoms and severity affecting the patient. The conservative treatments include Oral medications or topical suppositories.

More definitive measures or surgical techniques are needed for severe Hemorrhoids, such as when clots frequently form in external hemorrhoids, or Iigation fails to treat internal haemorrhoids or when there is persistent bleeding or when a protruding haemorrhoid cannot be reduced.

Surgical techniques under general anaesthesia include:


Stapled hemorrhoidopexy: In an effort to evade some of the postoperative pain associated with hemorrhoidectomy, stapled hemorrhoidopexy (also known as stapled hemorrohoidectomy) which is a more recently developed option that uses a stapling device to remove hemorrhoidal tissue. Surgeons recommend this procedure for patients whose hemorrhoids have prolapsed or become abnormally large, or for patients who have shown little or no improvement with nonsurgical treatment.

 This procedure involves circular stapling device which takes away some of the tissue located upstream from the hemorrhoids, thus pulling the hemorrhoids upward and returns that to its normal position, and staples to the wall of the rectum. This will stop the blood flow to your hemorrhoid and decrease swelling so that the tissue will shrink and be reabsorbed.

Benefits: 


  • Stapled hemorrhoidopexy requires no external incision hence considerably reduces the chances of infection. 
  • Patients typically experience less pain than those who undergo traditional hemorrhoid surgery and can resume work earlier.
  • They may also experience less bleeding, swelling, and itching around the anus and inside the rectum. 
  • In addition, stapled hemorrhoidopexy may reduce the chance of incontinence after the procedure.

Self-care is important to maintain your mental health


Self-care is important to maintain your mental health


Taking care of yourself is important throughout your life. You only have one body and one mind, and they have to last a lifetime. Self-care is good for your body, but it’s also good for your mind and mental health. Incorporating it into your lifestyle can help you improve your life in many ways.

Self-care isn’t just about getting pedicures and massages, though those are nice, too. Daily self-care is about the small changes you can make to improve your life. Choosing to eat better and add healthy habits can help you tremendously.

If you’re in addiction recovery, self-care is extremely important. Some self-care practices to include in your life are managing your environment to reduce stress and triggers, and avoiding negative influences, such as old friends who still drink or use drugs. Avoiding the things that encouraged you to use will help you avoid that desire to partake. Know what your triggers are, and have a plan for how to overcome them when they pop back into your life. Surround yourself with friends who are supportive of your new lifestyle, and you’ll be more likely to stay sober.

Here are some often-overlooked ways to incorporate self care into your life.


1. Get some sleep -- When we’re busy and stressed, sleep is one of the first things to go. But sleep is so important to our health. It can keep your heart healthy, prevent headaches, reduce stress, clean out your brain, improve brain function and prevent degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Sleep can also prevent weight gain and improve your mood. That feeling you get when you’ve had a good night of sleep is more than just happiness -- it’s healthful!

2. Relax -- Easier said than done, we know. But taking some time to relax when you feel stressed can help you in many ways. Make time in your week to do the things you enjoy, such as spending time with family or friends or participating in hobbies. Taking the time to have fun will help you face your weekly responsibilities with renewed gusto.

3. Reduce stress -- Just like relaxation, this can be a challenge. But it’s worth the effort. Ways to reduce stress include fine-tuning your morning routine, adding exercise to your day and listening to music while you work. Exercise is one of the best stress reducers, so going for a walk during your lunch break or joining a fitness class can make all the difference. Exercise boosts serotonin and dopamine, the feel-good chemicals in your brain.

4. Say no -- We naturally want to please the people around us. It’s in our basic makeup. So, saying no to them can feel really scary, but it’s important to do so to keep yourself from being overwhelmed. Saying yes to everything can add to your stress and feelings of frustration. So be clear with yourself about what you want and what you can do. Then allow yourself to say no to everything else.

5. Drink water -- Water is so good for you for many reasons, and staying hydrated can help keep you healthy and feeling well. Water is great when your energy starts to lag or when you feel hungry but don’t want to binge eat. It keeps your skin and kidneys healthy, as well as all your other organs. Drink up!

When you need help, ask for it. Then, work on these small changes in your life to keep you healthy and happy. You’re your body and mind’s best advocate, so keep up the work of staying healthy. You’ll reap great rewards for doing so. And you’ll be able to live the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Anal fistula treatment New Delhi

 

Anal Fistula treatment


Minimally Invasive Anal Fistula treatment (MAFT surgery) is ideal for High or Complex anal fistulas. The procedure is done through the external opening of the fistula. Through the external opening, a fistuloscope is inserted to view the fistula tract and localize the internal opening. An irrigation solution is used to view the fistula tract clearly. This inflation helps in localizing the internal opening of the fistula tract by advancing the fistuloscope through the track gently. Soon after locating the internal opening, it is sutured. Then the surgeon examines for the entire track for any secondary fistula or abscess cavity.

If the abscess cavity and secondary fistula are found, they are drained and with the help of a monopolar electrode, a fulguration is performed. With the help of endobrush that is passed through the fistuloscope, the damaged tissue is removed. Finally, the internal opening is disconnected by stapler firing. A temporary dressing is done at the external opening. The Patient is usually discharged the next day.

Dr. Nikhil Agnihotri is an expert in providing anal fistula treatment in New Delhi with an advanced surgical procedure. The advantages of Minimally invasive technique (sigmoidoscopy in India) are
  • No large wounds or dressings
  • No incontinence even in complex fistulas
