Having low back pain on my left side. Underwent an uterine stone surgery. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
I have pain
Since when do you have pain?
and where is the pain located
Is there a concern I can address?
Is there a question that I could help answer?
Dr I have a low back pain on my left side. I underwent an uretic stone surgery in the year 2007. I am taking Zyrolic one tab for the last 4 years. What do you suggest for me
Doctor are you there ?
I am here
there are a few things that you should be doing
First, is taking plenty of water
Here, we would be talking about 3-4 litres of water in a day
Secondly, it would be avoiding certain foods
These would include non vegetarian items, very high protein things like milk, cottage cheese
Also, spinach, nuts etc should be avoided
These measures will help reduce the recurrence of stones
Thirdly, you should also be taking about 1 cup cranberry juice daily
Since people with stones are prone to infections of the urinary tract
the juice helps prevent infections
Also, if your uric acid levels are normal
We can consider weaning you off the drug
So if we stabilize the uric acid levels by other means
The need for the drug reduces
Do you follow?
Please find my observations:
Pleae find my observations - I have advise not to take water more than 2 litres a day. Also, not to take any high ptotein food i.e chicken,meat, etc. I am also suffering from cardiomyopathy and also takes other medicines.
Did they specify the cause for the cardiomyopathy?
If yes, whats the ejection fraction?
Are you there?
yes, 67%, it is due to overweight
The ejection fraction is normal
If there is such an issue, the water intake needs to be restricted
But other measures need to be followed
which is often taken for pain in ureteric stones
needs to be taken only under supervision
It interferes with the compensatory mechanisms that kick in during such an issue
