Thanks.

This is what I think....

1. A certain Dr. has given a diagnosis of spondylolisthesis which is not mentioned in the MRI report. However there is mention of a transitional vertebrae which usually does not cause LBP. Spondylolisthesis sometimes does require surgery, transitional vertebrae usually does not need surgery.
2. Since a large part of the spine is involved the results of the operation will not be as good as it would have been if a shorter segment were involved.
3. your mom also has osteoporosis which needs to be addressed before proceeding for surgery because this condition often jeopardizes the results of the surgery.

So....... I would suggest to hold surgery for some time.
Start
1. physiotherapy with pelvic traction, exercises and TENS, or SWD
2. Give Calcium and either Calcitonin nasal spray or Teriparatide (which is costly)
3. Pregabalin which soothes the nerves that are hurting
4. And any odd painkiller which suits her. ( Ultracet is safe)

Cheers and best of luck

PS. sorry if my reply has too many medical terms.

Thanks for correcting. I meant naati only. Even in telugu it is called natu kodi.

Those of you who have a garden at home try to grow brinjal. cook it and compare the cooking time and taste with brinjal from market.
@RKG, yes, ripening agents are used on most fruits - if not all. But how do we get that was off these fruits ?

Reg Cauliflower, the pesticide would be sprayed on the leafy outer layers ? Isnt it better than with other vegetables ?

In case pesticide sprays etc no alternative except washing it thoroughly. some of it may wash off. but some residue will always be there

For ripening agents are injected nothing can be done ( for papaya it is injected inside for better ripening and colour, for Mango it is exposure from outside)

Cauliflower is most difficult to get away because of pesticide spray's on the flower itself.

But do not think all that is sold in market's ( esp Mall's, super markets) as organic /need to be organic. It is very difficult to prove ( in terms of cost)

Pesticide residues can be deducted only by either GLC( gas liquid chromatography) or HPLC( high performance liquid chromotagarphy) both are cumbersome and expensive.

If one wants to be 100% sure it is organic , he/she has to cultivate on their own or should know the source well

So the Orange Juice lacks fibre. It does contain everything else, like Vitamin C etc. So I dont know why it cant be better than water?

Look at the contents and you would know what else it contains apart from orange juice. And who said excess vitamin C is good for health? Luckily it's water soluble and can be excreted easily.

I went for my anual dental checkup which is almost always in the last fortnight of March every year. My dentist, among other things, advised to get rid of my wisdom teeth, citing reasons that they are not really useful in chewing, people have survived most of their life without them, they are diffivult to clean, decay/cavity in them will lead to the other nearby teeth getting spoilt.

Now this is the first time I am hearing such a thing (and I visit a dentist regularly), as surgically removing wisdom teeth. I politely refused to do so and asked him to just proceed with the couple of cavities I have developed in the last year.

Is this some new age thing - removing the wisdom teeth? Please comment.

Your dentist is right. This is the current protocol. Get them removed if advised.

Hello Doctors,

4 years or so ago, I used to get really bad and frequent headaches, prompting me to check my vision and also visit a neurosurgeon. The outcome of that was "all okay", except that I suffered from migraine. I was advised to sleep well, not take too much stress and try and identify what foodstuffs & beverages I consumed before the onset of the headache. I did this, but could not pin down any common occurrence except Paneer. Following the above advice did help to an extent, as in the frequency of the headaches reduced.

However, of late, the headaches have started again and that too very frequently [at least once in 2 weeks or so]. The pain in the forehead region is quite bad, but even worse than that is the pain in the neck, shoulder and at the back of the skull, where the hairline ends. Sometimes the pain is so much that I cannot even keep my eyes open or bear any noise at all. Saridon/Anacin/Disprin/pain balms - nothing helps, except Nise.

I've heard from quite a few people that too much of Nise consumption is not advisable. Is that right? If yes, what is a reasonable dose? Is once or twice in 15 days also too much? Also, isn't there any cure for migraine at all? I'm willing to try alternative medicines like Homeopathy too.

I am 36 years old, 5'9'', 70 kgs, exercise at least 4 times a week and eat a balanced diet [IMO ]. Not a fan of junk food or colas either.

Cheers,
Vikram

Hi Vikram,

Do you wear glasses?

If you do, then get your numbers rechecked.

I used to be in a similar situation like yours. Used to get headaches in the evening generally. Not severe that prompted me to visit specialists but sometimes enough to pop a pill.

Recently i went to get a consult done for LASIK. My doc examined me and dilated by pupils before taking my numbers. He then asked me if i had headaches. I was quite surprised when he asked me this. He said that my glasses were over corrected (i was wearing glasses of a higher prescription than required: ~ 0.75 more).

He gave me new numbers and said to try those for a month before LASIK.

He said that he came across numerous cases like mine. Most optometrists and ophthalmologists do not dilate before checking the numbers.

It's now been a week and i haven't got a headache after a long day of work as well.

Hope it helps. If you don't wear glasses, this post is then redundant.

Hello Tejas,

Thanks for your response.

No, I do not wear glasses. I did get my eyes checked before I visited the neurosurgeon. The opthalmologist said that my vision was normal, but I had a condition called Adie's Pupil [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adie_syndrome ]. His opinion was that it was unrelated to the headaches. However, just to get a 2nd opinion, he referred me to the neurosurgeon, who also concurred with the opthalmologist's reading. I've also had an eye check up done about 6 months ago, and the result was "status quo".

Well, in the absence of any treatment, I guess I'll just have to grin and bear it!

Cheers,
Vikram

One last thing: have you gotten your teeth checked? Get an OPG and a dental consult done.

Third molar pain is notorious and manifests as migraine, sinusitis, pain in left arm, etc

How do I find out what vaccination's I've got? What if I've lost the documentation pertaining to vaccinations I've received so far? Can a blood test be done and can it be found?
