Hi XXXXXXX

As per your history, you had H. Pylori infection and were treated with antibiotics.
But I would like to ask if you were tested for same infection 4 weeks after treatment or not?
H. Pylori infection usually needs more than 1 round of treatment.
So get one of the following tests done after consulting your gastroenterologist.
1] Blood test for H. Pylori antibodies.
2] Urea breath test.
3] Stool antigen test.
If same infection has recurred get it treated, until it is cured completely.

Get upper gastro-intestinal endoscopy done. [Upper GI scopy]
It will diagnose presence and location of ulcer. i.e. stomach or duodenal or esophageal ulcer.

Consult gastro-enterologist. You can take simple antacids to relieve pain till you get your reports of tests and endoscopy.

At the same time, follow certain lifestyle modifications.
1] Take small and frequent meals.
2] Avoid stress, adopt relaxation techniques.
3] chew your food slowly and thoroughly.
4] Exercise regularly and have regular, timely meals.

I hope I have answered your query. In case if you have doubt, I will be happy to help you.

Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.

Hi XXXXXXX

H. Pylori can cause indigestion and peptic ulcers but dysentery is unlikely.

As per your reports of stool examination and culture, cause for dysentery is bacteria- Klebsiella.
It has developed resistance to few antibiotics like aminoglycosides and beta lactamases. It has sensitivity for cephalosporins[as per your above mentioned report].
Klebsiella usually affect in immunodeficient state. Consult your treating doctor about this and bacillary dysentery treated with antibiotic as per mentioned above.

Even after treating bacillary dysentery, if you get similar complaints get endoscopy done. Ultrasound all the time cannot diagnose things correctly.

I hope this information is useful to you. If still you have doubts, revert back; I will be happy to help you.

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks again,

I apologize for not addressing the urine reports in our previous discussion. I shall address it this time.
But as you have been given above drugs, one of it being antibiotic will take care of this infection.

1. Klebsiella is associated with dysentry. It can lead to electrolyte imbalance. In an immunodeficient individual this can lead to pneumonia. Presuming you do not have immunodeficiency, the antibiotics prescribed to you should take care of this infection.

2. Colonoscopy allows the doctor to see through the inside of colon. Thus helps doctor to visualize the pathology. I understand the pain associated with it. However when done under an experienced doctor and good anaesthesia you should be experiencing that much pain.

If you are worried about getting colonoscopy, I suggest you to complete the course of medicine as per your treating doctor. We can avoid the procedure if your symptoms resolve with it. Else I encourage you to get the procedure done.

3. Presence of Escherichia coli (E.coli) is insignificant if you do not have any urinary complaints. It is a common contaminant of urine. In the absence of symptoms, I don't think this is concerning. Any way the prescribed antibiotic would take care of this infection too.

Hope this answers all your queries. Close this discussion and rate this answer if all your queries are addressed. Yet, if I have missed out any of your concerns, let me know.

Wish you good health

Hi XXXXXXX

A] Let me explain about your tablets first.

1] Klap: Ofloxacin & Ornidazole -Anti-Infective for klebsiella dysentery.
2] Tab Gutrex: reduces sensitivity of gut.
3] Cap Domta-dsr: antacid with anti- nausea drug.

Five days antibiotic course is usually sufficient to treat infection.
Follow up your treating physician for same.

B] Now coming to your sigmoidoscopy results.

Hemorrhoid and proctitis are two different things.
1] Hemorrhoid grade I is small swellings on the inside lining of the rectum-anus. They cannot be seen or felt from outside the anus.

2] Proctitis is inflammation of the rectum that causes discomfort, bleeding, and occasionally, a discharge of mucus or pus. Hemorrhoid can cause this.

3] Anal Fissure: The anal fissure is a small tear in the lining of the anus. The anal fissure can cause pain, bleeding and/or itching.
Anal fissure co-exists in your case along with hemorrhoid, is not same entity as proctitis or hemorrhoid.

The given medicines are sufficient to treat your condition.
Do not stress yourself for medicines.

Have faith on your treating physician.
Thanks for your query. I hope I have given satisfying answers.

Wish you good health.

And also prescribed medicine .in colonscopy ,I throught everywhere it follows same procedure it means ,a mild sedeation given to patient so that patient will not feel the pain.
But,he told here colonscopy is done without sedeation,I request doctor almost 3 times during the visit.he did not agreed by anyway.then I consult with some big hospitals names by hoping that there atleast colonscopy has done with sedeation.but everywhere it’s same.then,I connect with my friend who is living at delhi,he told me here and almost anywhere colonscopy done with mild sedeation which is a standard one.now what can I do.i am 21 years old boy with normal bp.

For your convinence I uploading the report and medicine prescription.

Doctor prescribed medicine as follows :
1)nizonide-o twice daily for 5 days
2)rekool D once in the morning for two months
3)cibis tablet twice daily for two months.

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing back.
Colonoscopy is done with mild sedation and also pain relievers are given to ease the procedure.
I would recommend you to get it done at the hospital where it is done with sedation. You might search it in nearby town.
H.pylori infection status can not be ruled out by just looking at it, as biopsy or blood/breath test is required. But as you have already taken medicines for it, it looks like it may not be present as duodenitis is diagnosed.
Continue above mentioned medication.
I would suggest, get only colonoscopy done. Do not repeat upper GI endoscopy.
Once colonoscopy is done, if it comes normal; no need to worry. With above medication, symptoms will come down.
I hope I have answered your query.

Dr. Neelam.

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing in.
Nizonide-o is anti infective. Rekool-D is for acidity which has proton pump inhibitor and antiemetic contents.
Cibis is antispasmodic given in irritable bowel disease.

I would like to ask you, have you done Ultrasound abdomen/CT abdomen?
Sometimes in case of acidity/indigestion; culprit can be either in liver or gallbladder or pancreas.
If Not, get at least ultrasound abdomen done.

Regarding diet, you can take cooked vegetables with oil but let oil be in fewer amounts.
Do not only eat boiled vegetables, it will make you weak. Eat all sorts of fruits and leafy vegetables. But spices like jeera, garam masala should be less. You can use haldi, lime, and no issues with that.
Even you can have egg, meat, fish but keep it least possible spicy.

Hope I have cleared your doubt. In case of other doubts, you can revert back.

Dr. Neelam.

ORGANS IMAGE ARE WITHIN NORMAL LIMITS.(DATED 8 MAY,2012)
mam,i love sweets ,not choclate,but like rosogola,any other that type of sweets.
can i have those?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Neelam Ashish Vanjari 24 hours later
Hi XXXXXXX

It is good that your ultrasound is normal.

You can have sweets like rasgola, no problem.

If colonoscopy is available with sedation, then only go ahead and get it done.

Upper GI endoscopy has already detected duodenitis.

So continue prescribed medication.

No need to worry.

Wish you good health.

You told me that cibis tablet used for bowel movement.but,I take enough fiber and used to use toilet 2 or 3 times in day.
But since last 3 /4 days my stool becomes harder and I have to give lot of strain to pass.
Finally after using duphalc for two days.yesterday I dring peglec solution to clean bowel.
No option was present near me.
Mam,is it harm me and I also stop taking cibis tablet.
a)Is this (cibis tablet) responsible for harder my stool.

c)     Mam,will it hurt me.

Hi XXXXXXX

You have mistaken Cibis tablet. It has anti-spasmodic effect so you will not get discomfort.
Cibis tablet will not cause constipation or will not harden stool.
Inflammed duodenum in duodenitis causes pain due to contractions, so it has been prescribed to you.
Do not stop in between, continue tablet for 2 months.

Regarding anal fissure or bowel habits, people will give different opinion, do not follow each and everything they advice.
Take lots of water as and when you need.
Include good amount fiber in the form of fruits and leafy vegetables.
Bowel habits even if is done for once is enough, it does not affect or cause any disease.
Just take care that it will not lead to constipation or passing motion in 3-4 days.

Most important thing what I have observed is you take too much stress for small things.
I strongly suggest jogging / brisk walking for 40 minutes. Also quick run for 2 minutes when you are stressed out or your thoughts taking away your peace of mind.

Wish you good health.

Hi XXXXXXX

Good to know you have started your tablets.

Regarding colon cleaning, it is not lime which helps; but it's the "2 litres of water" which removes toxins from body and does colon cleaning. So do not use lime, have only water.

Do not get any other colon cleaning procedures done. You do not need that.

Just having lots of water and fibre in diet is enough to take care of your bowels.

There is no need to follow it as monthly procedure; just inculcate habit of having enough water.

Hope this helps.

Mam,I have a few queries left in my mind
a)you did not tell me having bowel movement after dinner will effect anyways to me.it means it may leads to any crohn’s diseases?
b) I am thinking about to start morning walk and some exercise like yoga(abdomen related),should I start in this condition?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Neelam Ashish Vanjari 1 hour later
Hi XXXXXXX

Let me assure you first that your condition is not so bad that you cannot start exercise.
Rather you are just 22 yrs old. You need to do this kind of exercise which helps in digestion and maintaining person's well-being.

Do yoga not only abdomen related but also full including Suryanamaskara.

You are having only duodenitis which will get cured with prescribed medicines.

Bowel movements early in the morning and after dinner i.e. before going to bed are good habits. It will not cause any disease.

So do not worry and practice healthy living with balanced diet and exercise.

Thanks again.

mam,once u mentioned the statement
1)Klebsiella is associated with dysentry. It can lead to electrolyte imbalance. In an immunodeficient individual this can lead to pneumonia. Presuming you do not have immunodeficiency, the antibiotics prescribed to you should take care of this infection.
actually i want to ask:-
a)what is immunodeficiency,and how to detect a person have immunodeficiency disease that means any test that shows.
b)what is the best time to do morning walk?
c)should i go on empty stomach or drink 2/3 glasses of water and then proceed.

Hi XXXXXXX

Let me explain immunity first. Immunity is made up of cells which fight against the infection. These cells kill the micro-organisms or inactivate the toxins produced by pathogenic bacteria.
1] The person who lacks those cells will be immunodeficient. Those people will be susceptible to more infection.
Blood test like T cell count, neutrophil count, phagocyte and immunoglobulin levels are used to find out whether person is immunodeficient or not. If you have been fit and healthy so far, it is unlikely that you have any immunodeficiency.

2] Morning walk is best when there is no pollution. Usually morning 6 o clock is fine but as such there is no strict rule.

3] There is no need to go for walk on empty stomach. After having 1 glass of water you can start and have remaining water later. But you should keep yourself well hydrated throughout.

mam,for what purpose whole abdomen ultrasound done for?
a)are small instestine,large intestine(colon) not revealed using ultrasound?if any abnormality found.
b)what are the organs actually revealed using whole abdomen ultrasound?
c)mam,i heard about ct colonography,is it equivalent to colonscopy?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Neelam Ashish Vanjari 14 hours later
Hi XXXXXXX

Small and large intestine can be seen with ultrasound.

Whole ultrasound is done to reveal organs in abdomen which include- stomach, small intestine, large intestine, spleen, liver , gall bladder, pancreas, lymph nodes, kidneys, ureter, prostate, urinary bladder.

Yes, CT colonography is equivalent to colonoscopy. It is more comfortable than conventional colonoscopy for some people because it does not use a colonoscope. As a result, no sedation is needed, and the patient can return to his/her usual activities or go home after the procedure without the aid of another person. It also takes less time than either a conventional colonoscopy or a lower GI series.
It provides a secondary benefit of revealing diseases or abnormalities outside the colon.

Only disadvantage is that it can diagnose problems but as possible with colonoscopy, we can not remove or treat abnormalities at that point.

Hope I have cleared your doubt.

Dr. Neelam.

mam,if whole abdomen ultrasound reveals so many things,then
a)why colonscopy required?
b)whole abdomen ultrasound also reveals large and small bowel and other organs?
c)mam,what is capsule endoscopy,and why actually it is done?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Neelam Ashish Vanjari 3 hours later
Hi XXXXXXX

a) Ultrasound though can see all abdominal organs, one can not reach inside of the organs. Rather colonoscopy can reach inside of organs, can diagnose conditions as well treats them like removing polyps.

b) Whole abdomen ultrasound reveals organs as mentioned in our prior discussion.

c) Capsule endoscopy is endoscopy done using capsule like our medicine pill. Camera is attached to it's front side. Capsule needs to be swallowed with water.
Once swallowed the camera moves naturally through the digestive tract while patients carry out their normal activities. Approximately eight hours after ingesting the camera, patients return the recording device to their doctor or nurse so the images can be downloaded to a computer and evaluated. The Capsule endoscope is disposable and will be excreted naturally in your bowel movement.

I hope I have cleared your doubt.

Dr. Neelam.
