Question: I have had haemerroids for some time now. It is not acute. The doctor I consulted prescribed anti-haemerroid cream which I used for some time and stopped as it did not help.

I still have the problem. Although it is not very painful or discomforting yet. I would want a more long term remedy, before it worsens. What are the best options available in treatment in India?

especially, surgery vs laser treatment? pros and cons.

Thank you.

I have a feeling right above my anus that is like pressure/sitting on something. It gets better and worse with movement. I have no urinary or bowel symptoms such as constipation, straining, incontinence, rectal bleeding. My bowel movements are normal. Occasionally I have a feeling of pressure in my vagina. Could this be a rectocele or a fibroid? I have had these symptoms for about 4 weeks. Digital rectal exam showed no mass, bleeding, hemorrhoids or fissures. Sometimes I have a sensation of trickling fluid in my rectal area, but nothing drains from my rectum or vagina.

This 30-year-old dairy farmer was in good health until the day prior to admission, when he felt chilled and feverish. He developed nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and lower abdominal discomfort and presented to the emergency room, where he was noted to be lethargic. His vital signs included temperature of 40ÂșC, blood pressure of 100/60 mmHg in the supine position and 80/69 mmHg sitting, and a pulse of 80 beats/min. His physical examination was remarkable for lower abdominal tenderness. A rectal examination revealed occult blood in the stool. The patient was lethargic but had no focal neurological deficits. Of note, his 3-year-old daughter had been discharged from the hospital 2 days previously with a similar history. The patient was treated with i.v. fluids and antibiotics, and his condition improved. A stool examination was fecal leukocytes was positive, and a stool culture was diagnostic. Biochemical examination of the organism revealed it to be a lactose nonfermenter on MacConkey agar, H2S negative, urease negative, and nonmotile. 1. Which organisms would be in your differential diagnosis of bloody diarrhea with fecal leukocytes? 2. On the basis of the biochemical reactions, which organism do you think it is? 3. How is dehydration in patients with diarrhea usually treated? Why could this therapy not be used in this case?

My grand son has undergone surgery for rectosigmoid hirschprung s and now he is suffering from fecal soiling. His age is now 3 years. On per rectal examination there is hardened stool mass. Our doctor has suggested enema for weekly once for 2 weeks. Cremaffin syrup for 1 week at bed time. We have given syrup for 2 days and boy is crying with stomach pain. There is again soiling of feces.
