Good morning Dr Chandan, I will be obliged if you kindly advise me for my father s problem, which is a combination of hernia and prostate. My father, now aged 87 years suffered from urine blockage problem 7 years ago. We consulted experienced specialists and enlarged prostate was diagnosed. We were ready for surgery when one of my friends suggested an ayurvadic medicine for blocked urine problem. Within one hour of taking that medicine, he started passing urine normally. For next few days, we and a Physician in our neighborhood watched carefully and kept catheter handy but he was absolutely normal. He is continuously staying with me, and I am also watchful but since that day onward (now for about 7 years), he has no problem, though he has not been operated for enlarged prostate. Today he has inguinal hernia (right side) and we are planning for surgery though there is no pain or emergency. But the surgeon found enlarged prostate in clinical examination, and he now advises for surgery for prostate too - because he says that hernia problem will reappear soon if prostate problem is not treated now. The doctor is not prepared to treat only hernia problem. He has already been operated for hernia (left side) some 16 years ago. Sir, my specific query is that is it necessary to operate for prostate too though there is absolutely no complaint related to that problem? Hernia and prostate are linked? If we treat only hernia, do we expect problem in near future from enlarged prostate? If yes, how and what is the level of seriousness? I will be highly obliged if you kindly advise me. I simply want to avoid surgery for him - especially at this age unless essential. Regards, Vineet Gupta YYYY@YYYY

Hello,
Your doctor is absolutely right that prostate surgery is essential for the hernia repair.
If he doesn't get his prostate issue fixed and get the hernia surgery done,the repair will fail,the moment enlarged problem starts creating problem.Although he is not complaining of any problem...

Hi manz! If you had tried the medicine and you didn't feel any better. Do the ultrasound and compare the both old and new to see size is reduced or not. If size increases ask urologist then to surgeon for lazer therapy. It will sure help if medicine can't. Take care. Get well soon. Bye.

Hi
Thanks for the query.
The best way to prevent kidney stones is to drink more fluids.. About 3.5l/day.
With regards to NEERI syrup we have no evidence in Allopathy. However Ayurvedic doctors use it quite often.
If you have an enlarged prostate it's a good idea to see a urologist who wil examine...

Hi,have been recently been diagnosed with an enlarged prostate ,today i started taking flomaxtra which my uroligist prescribed for me.I have to go back & see him in a months time & if my condition hasn t improved he said i may have to undergo the TURP procedure.I have been doing quite a bit of research on the internet & personally i would rather try the green laser procedure as it seems to have less complications,what are your thoughts on this.I just turned 50yrs old this year. Thank You David Simpson

doctor1 MD

Dear Davosim, No doubt laser procedure have upper hand as far as knife less surgery is needed. BUT my opinion is nowadays drugs have better result and you will not have to for surgery , if so ask your urologist for 2nd options if available you can opt for it.

Cystic mass as you mention could be from some other structure inside abdomen or abdominal wall besides arising from UB itself. So as a first step, your surgeon has to ascertain whether it is from abdominal wall or not(common) secondly if it is not from wall then from which area likely? this can...
