Brief Answer:
Likely to be acid peptic disease

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mr XXXXXXX

The cause of pain in right hypochondriac region (Liver region) is likely to be due to acid peptic disease.

I would suggest you the following which will definitely help.
1. Taking Antacid like Pantoprozole which is available over the counter will help
2. Avoid Spicy and oily foods
3. Eat small quantity frequent meals
4. Avoid tea/coffee/alcohol/carbonated beverages
5. Consume high fiber diet
6. Consume plenty of oral fluids

If the symptoms persists would suggest you to see a Surgeon for further assessment.

Painless bleeding is likely to be due to haemorrhoids. Exact diagnosis will depend on clinical examination by Surgeon. I would suggest you to consult Surgeon for further assessment.
In the meantime I would suggest the following


I would suggest you the following

1. Drink plenty of water everyday:. It will help by mixing with the fiber of diet and give bulk to the stools so that they are well formed and soft.

2. High Fiber diet: Vegetable salad( 2 servings a day), Fruits especially citrus fruits.

3. Avoid Diet causing constipation: Especially those food stuffs containing refined flour like cakes, bread, biscuits, cookies

4. Hot Seitz bath: Add a handful of common table salt in a tub of lukewarm water and immerse the bottom by sitting in it. Every such session should last for 15 to 20 minutes. Two such session a day, one in the morning and one before retiring to bed at night. It would also be benificial to repeat it after every bowel movement.

5. Laxatives


Do get back to me if you need any further assistance
