Doctor :   Yes
User :   odoctor i had visited a doctor
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   when would that be
User :   and he asked me for scrotol scanning and one blood test for filiaria
User :   can u put some light on this
Doctor :   Yes since there are possibilities of having the Reinfection
Doctor :   so the doctor might have asked you to get the Repeat scan done
User :   just 10 days before i had been to my native
Doctor :   and Scrotal Scan would rule out any Torsion too
Doctor :   since that is surgical emergency and will require immediate attention
User :   doctor doesnt that scan have any negative impact
Doctor :   ok

Doctor :   since the Exposure time is relatively less
User :   what will be the effective cost
Doctor :   Do not know Exactly but in the range of Rs. 550 to 750/-
Doctor :   mostly
Doctor :   Please fill the feedback form say done when done
User :   ok
Doctor :   Is there any thing else that I could help you with?
User :   yes can u be little brief with the torrision
Doctor :   Sure
User :   what exactly is it
Doctor :   Testicular torsion is the twisting of the spermatic cord, which cuts off the blood supply to the testicle and surrounding structures within the scrotum.
User :   what is the medication for it
Doctor :   It is a a result of inadequate connective tissue within the scrotum.
Doctor :   Surgery is required and should be performed as soon as possible after symptoms begin.
Doctor :   there are no medical measures
User :   in it does the leg pain
Doctor :   Certainly since the nerve supply is common there will be referred pain
Doctor :   It will extend down the thigh
User :   doctor on the left part just above the testice when i press hard on the pelvic bone i get a pain
Doctor :   That is because of the tissues that are interconnected .
User :   it is just near to the connection point of my penis to my body
User :   do u still think it can be torosion
Doctor :   That is called the Root of Penis and the tissues that are covering the testis arise from there and hence the pain
Doctor :   since that it the surgical emergency and that needs to be ruled out will require examination to confirm and
User :   ok once conferment is a surgery needed

Doctor :   siince i lack that facility would recommend you to get to the general surgeon at the earliest
Doctor :   Yes it will require surgery.
User :   ok so the scrotol scanning will find all that out
Doctor :   Have you filled the feedback form which I have sent?
Doctor :   Yes
User :   yes doctor
Doctor :   and that is why the doctor suggested that .
User :   one more thing
Doctor :   tell me
User :   that hetrazan is for filariasis
Doctor :   Yes
User :   can you say me the procedure of taking it if incase it is filariasis
Doctor :   Initially, 1 mg/kg daily, increased gradually to 6 mg/kg daily over 3 days then maintained for 3 wk.
User :   per day how many and before or after food

User :   and with it what extra medicine should i take
Doctor :   After food and 300 mg dose one time
Doctor :   Nothing along with it if yu have bowel problem then you might need to take anti acidity drugs along
User :   if it is 100 mg then 3 time a day

Doctor :   that is good enough
User :   actually i have acidity also and bowel problem is what i am suffering since 4 years

Doctor :   ok.
User :   i even had appendicides

Doctor :   any medications that you are on for it now
Doctor :   did you get that operated
User :   no
Doctor :   Appendicitis
User :   it is mild so doctor told me not now
Doctor :   please stay on line for few moments
User :   so taking that hetrazan causes any problem for acidity and bowel problem, can u explain it to me doctor
User :   and the precaution to over come it

Doctor :   Hetrazan should not be causing them
User :   does it cause any bad for people having acidity
Doctor :   Yes if you are a patient of acidity then it will be worsening it
Doctor :   and that is why you need to take it after food.
User :   so how to over come it
