Question: My husband is having pain for two days in his right hip/abdomen area that sometimes radiates around his stomach in the front and the back. His only relief is sitting still or lying still. Getting up and down is painful and walking is difficult. Sometimes the right leg gives on him.

Brief Answer:
Needs Proper diagnosis at the earliest for a proper management.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history about your husband and understood the concerns.
The history as noted indicate that the problems may either be muscular spasm or a problem related to spine causing all the symptoms as mentioned. And in addition can not take Advil, aspirin and such NSAIDs as he is on Epiquis.
Hence I would advise him the following:
Clinical evaluation, examination and investigations to know the exact cause.
Please take him to the Doctor or ER for getting the clinical diagnosis so that further investigations as advised , say for example MRI can help to pin-point the cause as getting the correct diagnosis is very important considering the past history.

I hope this answer helps you both the get the proper diagnosis at the earliest.

OK. Just saw a neurosurgeon last Friday with MRI of lower lumbar and said was nothing he could do for him unless having pain run down into legs. Pain has suddenly sifted from lumbar 4, 5, 6 to this new area. He says it feels like his hip is disconnected or something. Husband said is right side not left, but don't think that makes any difference. Will try to get him to go to the ER but think he'll have to suffer a bit longer before he's willing to go. Thank you.

Brief Answer:
As detailed below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback.
Noted the opinion of a Neurosurgeon.
As said above, this may be due to muscle spasm causing the secondary problems but it is necessary to get a proper diagnosis and to see for or rule out any problem with the right hip by clinical examination and investigations.
Surely, there are medicines for pain and spasm that can be prescribed judiciously.
Till then he can full bed rest, warm fomentations in a warm room.
Please give feedback.

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.

My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.

Thank you.

I drink very very seldom (Alcoholic beverages) and only use the drugs prescribed, aside from occasional aspirin. I am also taking some vitamin supplements.
