Hello

Nasal Polyps can easily be cured with Homoeopathic Intervention. I can suggest you some Remedies, if you explain a bit more of your symptoms in detail. Surgery is not at all needed.

Regards

1. Go ahead with your CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) Scan. It should be a plain scan with 1mm coronal, axial and sagittal cuts, preferably on a Multislice Scan Machine. Contrast should be used only if necessary.
2. Is your nasal blockage one sided or on both sides. Before asking for your scan, your doctor must have examined your nose. What were the clinical findings? If no polyps were actually seen, it might be a good idea to do a pre and post de-congestion scan using xylometazoline (Otrivin) nasal drops.
3. Polyps require surgery at some point in time. In India it would cost between 15,000 to 60,000 rupees depending on the type of room and hospital. This amount will not cover incidental expenses and extra cost in the event of complications.

have been suffering from nose blockage and shortness of breath since 18 months. One thing I observed is that only one nostril gets blocked and if I sleep on one side then the side which is at floor that side nostril gets blocked and when i turn over the other side gets blocked. Also whenever I through out mucus by coughing or any other means I feel better. Shortness of breath problem always there even my both nostrils are cliar. I had CT scan and doctor told me that I have Deviated Nasal Septum but that is from childhood and every other thing is clear. Allergist who performed skin test told me I have dust mite allergy and reactive Airway Decease . I have taken enough care to avoid dust mite . IgE level Stands at 300 while Lab range is 10-340. Also I have pain in my right ear only. Only a tablet of ambroxol hydrochloride gives me complete relief from shortness of breath and nose blockage. What should I do ? CT Scan reports WWW.WWWW.WW

I am 67 years old, measuring 173 cm and weighing 85kg. After the death of my wife 6 months ago, I got a medium level depression (which I am treating with a daily intake of 1mg vitamin B12). I went to Morocco for work to change my mind. After about 6 weeks I got the flu there. Two brilliant local doctors confirmed to me that I had to take immediately an antibiotic because I supposedly had a pneumonia. I did it and promptly lost about 12kg in about one week, for lack of food intake possibility due to a totally blocked colon and suddenly strong stomach cramps and breathing problems. I returned quickly to Sweden where the emergency Dr. detected immediately asthma generated by a virus. I have managed to get completely rid of the asthma in the lungs since then. Now for the last 6 weeks about, my nose suffers from a strange problem. The problem started with a very strong liquid (non salty tasting) mucus discharge, followed by a total nose blockade. I tried Otrivin and similar products and Claritine with almost no effect. When coming home my nose is usually ok for the first 30 minutes. Afterwards the nose starts plugging until a total block of both nostrils. No mucus is running. When I take the car to go to the nearest shopping mall, my two nostrils open up again slowly over a period of about 30 minutes and become totally normal again in the mall. Returning home, my problem starts again. What is my problem? I am thinking of a birch wood allergy, since 70% of my furniture is made of birch.

I am a 70 year old female. I have had IBS most of my life, but one year ago I began to be severely constipated and only having a bowel movement every seven days and only then because I have had to resort to using a laxative. I did add more fibre to my diet and am trying to drink more water. The only blood I have noticed seems to be on the outside of the stool, therefore, I think it s only because of the colon lining being irritated. I have abdominal pain everyday, which is sometimes generalized, but most recently the pain in my left lower quadrant has become quite intense. In the past month I started taking ClearLax , which is similar to Restoralax and have increased fibre and drinking more prune juice, hence, bowel movements are more frequent and softer. Having said that the pain still persists. I also experience what would seem like liver pain which seems to be in the entire liver area and is quite intense sometimes. An xray last year showed a fatty liver. I was referred to a general surgeon in Dec. 2013, and he did not examine me at the time, but booked me for a colonoscopy which I can t get an appt. for until June. He also has booked me for an MRI, but the wait time for that is extremely long, could be a year, if I m lucky. As another opinion, do you feel that this could possibly be something serious.

He has had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy in the last few weeks. Both were normal. A couple months ago his bilirubin count was high. His doctors are seaming to give up. could you give any light on the subject.

Very Good Afternoon, My mother has been suffering from ulcerative colitis sine 2004. She has been under treatment since then. Recently in colonoscopy test. doctor said that 100% ulcerative colitis was healed where as in biopsy test it was features are suggestive of adenomatous polyp with moderate dysplasia . My doctor says this is polyp and it can be removed through colonoscopy. I have a doubt that 1) Is it initial stage of cancer??? 2) Is it benign tumor which can not be converted as cancer cells???
