Patient asked followup Question: 12 years ago

Post Pituitary Adenoma Surgery, do you suggest medication or a second time surgery.. If so what is the costs of medication and surgery in india

Hi,

You can review your reports with an endocrinologist,however it is usually operated by a neurosugeon. I am sure that there are many endocrinologist in all the cities you mentioned.

In delhi there are so many government and private super-speciality hospitals
Government hospital - AIIMS, RML , Safdarjung
Private hospitals- Apollo,Max,Fortis,Medanta , Ganga Ram)and many more.

You will have to provide me with a lot of details about the size of the tumor, previous surgery (name of the surgery). If the tumour is big and is hampering your vision then repeat surgery is recommended. Usually the recurrence of Pituitary Adenoma is not very common but it may reoccur in a few people. I do not know have the idea about the cost of treatment. You will have to check with the hospitals but government hospitals will have nominal charges.

Feel free to ask more questions.

My father is 78 years old and has been suffering from constipation for the last 2 years. He has also lost a lot of weight around 10 kgs in this time span. In the last couple of months he has been complaining that his abdominal muscles have torn due to bowel straining and now he says there is loss of muscle in his stomach area. Which is why when he lies down everything is fine but when he sits up and walks around he feels like he is carrying a weight in his stomach. After intake of food it becomes worse and he also gets bloating. We have done all possible tests - colonoscopy, CT scan, ultrasound sometime last year and everything was clear. The doctors gave a verdict of idiopathic constipation and left it at that. His blood work is fine, haemoglobin levels, cholestrol etc. He still suffers from constipation. His prostrate is enlarged but results are fine. What is the solution to his stomach muscle problem ? Is it lack of exercise, lack of protein ? He doesnt have a pot belly and has never had and had always been physically active and fairly slender.

Hi, History told by you favours irritable bowel syndrome ( IBS ). There are two alarming signs in your case : Firstly, loss of weight and that to10kg approx. Secondly, sensation of carrying a weight in stomach. Both of them do occurs in IBS. But to be on safer side,I would suggest you to go for colonoscopy again because it was done 1 yr back and symptoms have aggravated few months back. Treatments available for IBS - - Increase the level of physical activity. - Have regular meals and take t ...

A few years back after having visited a hill station in India.. i got this sort of coating on my upper lip that couldn't be scraped off easily, a lot of my friends did too.. but even now my problem persists, this was followed by dryness around my lip and white patches that were spreading and cuts started forming. on consulting several dermatologists, they prescribed Fluticasone Propionate ointments of varying concentration saying that its caused by the fact that I was born by extremely dry skin and the saliva dries the area more, but I've been using petroleum jelly on my lips since I was small as I always used to get chapped lips.. I similar sort of dry patch developed on my finger which went on to spread over the years to my entire finger, for which i use the the same medication.. the itching on the finger and the dryness goes away after a couple of days of use but then it comes back when not used and the texture of my finger has turned out to be slightly glossy looking compared to the rest of my fingers..

I am a 24 year old female from Bangalore. Me and my partner have been trying to have intercourse for the past 6 months. But I always feel intense pain and we have to withdraw. At first, it was impossible to even insert a finger inside my vagina. But now that’s possible, but I feel a burning sensation everytime my partner inserts his finger. So we have not been able to proceed. Please advise on what can be done and a doctor I can meet in Bangalore.
