Thank you for your inquiry.

 

The frenulum is the small sheet of skin underneath the glans (head) of the penis, which joins the glans to the foreskin. If the frenulum is too short on the erect penis, it does not allow the foreskin to slide forward and causes pain. During intercourse, this can happen and as a result the tight frenulum.

 

A  tight frenulum can be released with a simple surgical incision under local anaesthesia. The wound is dressed and allowed to heal over a couple of days. No stitching is required.

You may try following home treatment methods.

hemorrhoids:

Keep the anus clean by wiping carefully after each bowel movement. Gently wipe from the front to the back.  If you use toilet paper, use only soft, undyed, unscented toilet paper.

Take warm soaks in a tub . Warm water can help soothe hemorrhoids. Add baking soda to the water to relieve itching.

Use cold packs. You can put ice or a cold pack on the area for 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Put a thin cloth between the ice and your skin.

Do not sit for long periods, especially on hard chairs.

Drink plenty of fluids and use stool softeners, if needed. Don't strain (push hard) during a bowel movement.

 

Since local application of medication has not been beneficial for you,

If you are concern further you may  make an appointment with a consultant surgeon  for surgical opinion.

I broke my condom when I was having sex with a prostitute on 3rd of this January.how should I take a hiv test?

Thankx for your inquiry.

You may do HIV  1 and 11 antibody testing 3 to 4 weeks after exposure. A negative test for HIV antigen and/or HIV antibody usually indicates that a person does not have an HIV infection

HIV tests that detect only HIV antibody will not detect an HIV infection soon after exposure, during the window period before the development of antibodies. Most people produce detectable levels of antibody 3 to 12 weeks after exposure. If someone is screened with an HIV antibody test too soon, the result may be negative despite the fact that the person is infected (false negative). If an HIV antibody test is negative but suspicion of exposure remains high, then repeat testing using the HIV antigen/antibody blood test may be required.


If someone tests positive on both the initial screen and supplemental testing, then that person is considered to be infected with HIV.

A reduced risk of some sexually transmitted diseases in men.

Protection against penile cancer and a reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners.

Prevention of balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin).

Prevention of phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original location).

Pain

Risk of bleeding and infection at the site of the circumcision

Irritation of the glans

Increased risk of meatitis (inflammation of the opening of the penis)

hi im nilukshi. im suffer from gain weight. im in under weight . i want to gain my weight fast.. how can i gain my weight?

Few Tips to gain weight!

Don’t drink water before meals. This can fill your stomach and make it harder to get in enough calories.

Eat more often. Squeeze in an additional meal or snack whenever you can, such as before bed.

Drink milk. Drinking whole milk to quench thirst is a simple way to get in more high-quality protein and calories.

Try weight gainer shakes. If you are really struggling then you can try weight gainer shakes. These are very high in protein, carbs and calories.

Use bigger plates. Definitely use large plates if you are trying to get in more calories, as smaller plates cause people to automatically eat less.

Add cream to your coffee. This is a simple way to add in more calories.

Get quality sleep. Sleeping properly is very important for muscle growth.

Eat your protein first and vegetables last. If you have a mix of foods on your plate, eat the calorie-dense and protein-rich foods first. Eat the vegetables last.

You may  see a Dietitian for proper meal planing in weight gain.

If your under weight for a longer period even with trying various methods to gain weight,you may see a consultant physician to find out for a medical cause for your problem.

certain medicines, also can cause gynacomastia including some:

Antibiotics

Heart medicines

Anti-anxiety drugs

AIDS treatments

Tricyclic antidepressants

Chemotherapy

Drugs that treat heartburn

drinking too much alcohol. And use of steroids can also lead to this condition.

Herbal products that contain tea tree oil or lavender oil can also increase breast size

Sometimes it happens because of another health problem, like an overactive thyroid, kidney disease, or a tumor on one of the glands that controls your hormones.

You may have a  above reversible cause for your condition,as  the surgical correction is the last option.Therefore it’s always better  to consult a Surgeon 1 st and discuss your condition.You may call our hotline and make an appointment with a Surgeon at your convenience.

This is regarding my brother who is 20 years old. Doctor, my brother has being taking pain killers, nearly for 3/4 of the year , sometimes for the pain in the hand which was treated under a surgery as it was fractured due to a motor accident last year, also for headache which sometimes has been much severe and sometimes for no reason- it isn't that incorrect even if someone calls it an addiction. I came to know all these very recently as he appeared to be feeling very uncomfortable on the Saturday the 15th. He was extremely drowsy, eyes all red, wasn't fit enough to work and was suffering from a severe headache too. To see he had taken 6 tablets of Ponstan 500mg and 8 tablets of Panadol. Stil, even today he has this severe headache and body pains due to that. On the other hand, he has been using tricks to balance this chemical reactions of these tablets too...( taking cold water, garlic, curry leaves etc.) And it was not just panadol only but also he had been using strong pain killers which were once prescribed after his injure in the hand, one year back. Doctor, please guide me at your earliest of what are the tests supporting to detect any underlying side effects or cause effects of these medicines he has been using exceeding the general dose (most of the times). And what are the measures you suggest of proceeding further with related to this issue... I look forward for a supporting response at your earliest... Thank you very much.

Thankx for the inquiry.

Long-term use of painkillers can lead to physical dependence. The body adapts to the presence of the substance and if one stops taking the drug abruptly, withdrawal symptoms occur. Or the body could build up a tolerance to the drug, meaning that higher doses have to be taken to achieve the same effects.

 

Like all drugs, painkillers simply mask the pain for which they are taken. They don’t “cure” anything. Someone continuously trying to dull the pain may find himself taking higher and higher doses—only to discover that he cannot make it through the day without the drug.

 

Symptoms of withdrawal can include restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes with goose bumps , and involuntary leg movements.

 

Your brother probably must have presented with symptoms of  an overdose due to addiction.

Kindly be alert for following features,as he may need emergency treatment.

Constricted (pinpoint) pupils.

Loss of consciousness.

Depressed respiration (slowed breathing)

Cold, clammy skin.

Drowsiness.

Lowered blood pressure (hypotension).

Weak pulse.

Nausea/vomiting.

In the long run,Kindly approach with him love and care and  avoid blame or judgment.

 

-Encourage them to see a doctor for an evaluation. Most people trust the advice of professionals.You may make an appointment with a consultant psychiatrists.  withdrawing under medical supervision can help manage your withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapse.,which also includes long term counselling therapy .

-Listen to their fears and concerns.

-Remind them that every person is different and reacts to treatment differently.

Thanks for your inquiry.

 

body size, shape, muscularity, or weight do not determine your identity as a man. If you are truly interested in making some changes, consider working toward accepting your current appearance first and know that making changes to your weight in either direction takes considerable energy. If you are interested in adding muscle, you can anticipate that it will take effort, time, and a focused plan.

 

In oder to gain some muscles you may join a gym and consider taking help from a personal trainer focusing on a longterm plan which includes strength training exercises of lifting weights.Focus on correct techiques and required weight for lifting and no of repetitions.

 

your consumption of energy-dense foods, especially those higher in protein such as low fat peanut butter, nuts (cashews and peanuts), lean cuts of chicken, turkey, and fish such as salmon and tuna.You may make an appointment with our Dietician/Nutrtionist for proper guidance of food choices.

 

Finally remember that anyone undertaking a weight changing venture is a gradual process.therefore while you're waiting for the effects of your efforts to kick in, remember to flex all of your muscles — your heart, soul, compassion, humor, patience, and intelligence

I had a circumcision surgery 2yesrs ago because of my foreskin couldnt adjust properly. after that i feel my penis getting smaller and without foreskin it looks terrible. if there any doctor i can get a solution or surgery available? please send me the details. Thank you. Tharindu

Thankx for your inquiry.

circumcision removes some extra skin (foreskin) from around the head of the penis, it does not shorten the actual penis length nor does the procedure affect the growth of the penis. The actual penis length and girth comprises of skin, protein tissues, cells and blood vessels and circumcision does not affect any of these structures. In other words, as only skin is being removed, the actual penis is not touched.

Therefore its wiser to get over the myths than thinking about reconstruction methods

i had sex last week i used the condom all the time. Condom did not broke or slip but i touch her hand a little bit. Do i have a chance of HIV and do i need to do a test plss reply for the question quickly i am pretty worried

Fluids which HIV can get transmitted are

 

Blood

Semen (cum)

Pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum)

Rectal fluids

Vaginal fluids

Breast milk

These body fluids must come into contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into your bloodstream (by a needle or syringe) for transmission to occur. Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vagina, penis, and mouth.

If you think you may have been exposed to HIV, you may get HIV antibody test from one our laborataries

Some people may experience a flu-like illness within 2-4 weeks after HIV infection. But some people may not feel sick during this stage.

Flu-like symptoms can include:

Fever

Chills

Rash

Night sweats

Muscle aches

Sore throat

Fatigue

Swollen lymph nodes

Mouth ulcers

You should not assume you have HIV just because you have any of these symptoms. Each of these symptoms can be caused by other illnesses. And some people who have HIV do not show any symptoms at all for 10 years or more.

 

If you think you may have been exposed to HIV, get an HIV test .

We only have blood testing for HIV antibodies  which costs RS.1750/= done as rapid testing.

                     4-6 weeks (up to 3 months) after infection, most people will have enough antibodies to test positive

                     12 weeks (3 months) after infection, about 98% of people will have enough antibodies to test positive.

 

and blood testing for Antigen costs Rs.9150/=which may be positive at 3 wks.

 

We do not have home testing Kit.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Laproscopic fundoplication is done for the cost of which may range from Rs 135000 to 160000. Which includes hospital charges only.(without consultant fee).

you will most likely be in the hospital for only 2 to 3 days. A general anesthetic is used. You will have less pain after surgery, because there is no large incision to heal. After laparoscopic surgery, most people can go back to work or their normal routine in about 2 to 3 weeks, depending on their work.

 

In most people who have laparoscopic surgery for GERD, the surgery improves symptoms and heals the damage done to the esophagus.

Over time, some people have symptoms come back, have esophagitis come back, need to take medicine for symptoms, or need another operation.

Surgery can cause new and troublesome symptoms. Over time, some people have trouble swallowing, have increased flatulence (gas), and/or have trouble belching.

It’s possible for you to get pregnant without having sexual intercourse if, for example:

sperm get into your vagina – for example, if you or your partner have semen or pre-ejaculate on your fingers and touch your vagina

your partner ejaculates near your vagina

your partner’s erect penis comes into contact with your body near your vagina.

Urine pregnancy test can be done at home . On average, a pregnancy test will be positive 13-14 days after ovulation and fertilization, or about the time you expect your menstrual period.

Hospital/Doctor Enquiry | 08/16/16

my creatine kinase test's result is 749.plaese can you explain about it?

Thankx for your inquiry.

Creatine kinase is an enzyme chiefly found in the brain, skeletal muscles, and heart. An elevated level of creatine kinase is seen in heart attacks, when the heart muscle is damaged, or in conditions that produce damage to the skeletal muscles or brain.

 

An early rise in CK is also seen after an acute MI, with values peaking at 12 to 24 hours and falling back to normal in 3 to 4 days. Although total CK activity has been used as a diagnostic test for MI, it has been replaced by the troponin  I immunoassays, and is no longer the laboratory test choice for diagnosing and monitoring acute infarctions.

Dear Sir/Madam, My name is Norbert Lepathy and I am a 51-year-old. I live in Seychelles, and I have been diagnosed with diabetes some 10 years ago, and I was on metformin 500mg 3 times a day until late last year when my doctor has decided to move me on a combination of Metformin + Glimepiride twice daily. In January this year I noticed that my upper abdomen started bloating and I feel full immediately after meals. Sometimes there is a dull pain in my upper left part of my stomach which goes to my upper back. Although I reduce my food intake, my abdomen still bloats and I feel very uncomfortable. Two years ago, I had some sharp pain in my upper abdomen and the doctor did a U/S and told me it could be chronic pancreatitis. They sent me to do a CT Scan and the result did not confirm this. My amylase level as of last month was 128 u/l and the same figure was recorded over a year ago. Last month my doctor has asked for a complete blood test and all parameters were normal. He did an ultrasound (fasting) and some fluid was found in my stomach which according to him should not be there at fasting. The ultrasound also showed some thickening of my duodenal wall which they suspected could be H Pylori bacteria. He then referred me to a Gastroenterologist who did an endoscopy. The endoscopy only showed some gastritis and nothing serious. The specialist took a sample of the duodenum wall for analysis. The result shows no signs of H Pylori bacteria. He told me there is nothing to worry about as there are no serious diseases. I use to drink alcohol but stopped when I first started to feel the bloating of my abdomen. I have quit smoking some 9 years ago. Now I am worried about my health as my abdomen isn't improving. It is still big and full up. It appears my problem is in the upper left of my abdomen. I don't know if it's my pancreas, but I don't feel comfortable. My gastroenterologist said that he now need to do a colonoscopy. There is no blood in my stool. Just tested it last month. Can you please advise me what could be the problem as I want to come to SRI Lanka for further check up and diagnosis. I look forward to your reply. Best regards

Dear Mr.Norbet,

 

We would advise you to come to Sri lanka and get yourself consulted from one our reputed doctors.

We can make a consultation with our best and most experienced gastroenterlogist We would assure you to give yo the best care at our hospital Accomadation and transport can be arranged for your conviniance For furthur information feel free to contact me.

Dear doctor, HIV 1/2 combo test in your hospital can detect a possible exposure after 8-10 years? Recently I read it can be well used at 4 weeks time. BR Rajitha

 

Thankx for your inquiry

A test taken at least 12 weeks (3 months) after exposure to the virus provides highly accurate results. In rare cases, a person could take up to six months to test positive using standard tests, and that is almost always a person with a severely compromised immune system due to another disease, such as leukemia.

why my penis get hurt(woond )after sex? is it bcz of dryness or fungi affrction bt i always keep it very clean .

Penis pain after sex is a common problem, especially in young men in most cases, which is not a serious condition. Occasionally, it may be necessary to seek medical help, especially if you have other symptoms.

 

Possible Causes

If you experience soreness in the penis after sex, it does not necessarily mean you have an infection or a serious problem that needs treatment. Try to find out which of these possible causes may apply to you:

 

1.Prolonged sex

2.Extended manual stimulation

3.Friction

4.Oral sex

5.Lack of lubrication or dryness

6.Circumcised penis

 

Other Factors That May Cause Sore Penis

1.Bad hygiene

2.A cut on the penis

3.Sore penis and itching

               Soreness and itching around your foreskin are often due to fungal infection or thrush.

4.Sore penis and ulcers

                 Raw areas on the penis or ulcers often look like oval or circular craters. They may indicate serious infection, such as herpes or syphilis. Seek treatment immediately and avoid having sex.

5.Balanitis-

        This is an inflammation at the head of your penis that can cause soreness. It may be due to an allergy, thrush

 

Treatment for Your Sore Penis

1.Underuse it for several days

2.Use adequate lubrication

3.Apply a gentle cream

My parents know about that. They like it.bt my mother against with me.no reason.I always try to help her.bt she never see good things about me.I want to die.. I try to die

Do not over think about certain incidents.A mother loves children equally.Your mother may scold you for your own good,as she do understand  things more than you at certain circumstances.Therefore  do not worry much .

Socialising can improve your mood. Keeping in touch with friends and family means you have someone to talk to when you feel low.

Take up some form of exercise. There's evidence that exercise can help lift your mood. If you haven't exercised for a while, start gently by walking for 20 minutes every day.

Hi Dr, i m jega, im 20 years old, i think i have gynecomastia, i want to do surgery, its how much cost.

Thank you for your inquiry.

 

70% of boys get it during puberty. It’s caused by natural changes in estrogen (a "female hormone" that men also have) and testosterone.

certain medicines, also can cause gynacomastia including some:

Antibiotics

Heart medicines

Anti-anxiety drugs

AIDS treatments

Tricyclic antidepressants

Chemotherapy

Drugs that treat heartburn

 

drinking too much alcohol. And use of steroids can also lead to this condition.

 

Herbal products that contain tea tree oil or lavender oil can also increase breast size

 

Sometimes it happens because of another health problem, like an overactive thyroid, kidney disease, or a tumor on one of the glands that controls your hormones.

 

You may have a  above reversible cause for your condition,as  the surgical correction is the last option.therefore it’s always better  to consult a Surgeon 1 st and discuss your condition.Please call our hotline and make an appointment with a Surgeon at your conviniance.

Thank you for you inquiry.

 

measurements of AMH may be modified in those taking the contraceptive pills.It effects by suppressing ovarian function which may result in  lowering the levels of AMH

 

At 8 wks  you might find an alteration in AMH levels,(at the lowerside)

 

Accurate results may be given after 3 months of cessation of pills

 

Normal range for AMH  over 1.0ng/ml

for the past couple weeks I have been feeling blocked sensation in my right ear,can hear fluid sloshing sound in side my right ear when I yawn ,burp or swallow. I don't have any pain now ,but i have got a pain in that ear a week back. I haven't had a cold .What could it be?

Ear block during allergy or  common cold is quite normal; this is because of the blockage of Eustachian tube (the tube connecting nose and the ear).

 

In case of allergy or common cold when nose and throat are congested ,one side of the tube can get closed and this can cause an accumulation of fluid in the middle ear.

When you blow your nose or burp ,yawn ,swallow the pressure created opens the tube ,that can be heard as a popping sound in ear. 

 The pain is  due to the inflammation of the nasal end of the Eustachian tube. Also, there are chances of perforation in the ear drum which can be confirmed only after examining the ear.

I would suggest you to consult an ENT especialiist for further management.

Until then do steam inhalation, drink plenty of warm water

Hello, I need more information about Circumcision Surgery. please contact me only through email. I want to know, who is the doctor and chargers and etc...Thank you

Circumcision is a relatively simple procedure. The foreskin is removed just behind the head of the penis. Any bleeding can be cauterised (stopped using heat), and the remaining edges of skin will be stitched together using dissolvable stitches.

 

usually either have a general anaesthetic, which means you'll be unconscious throughout the procedure, or a local anaesthetic injection, which will numb your penis and the surrounding area. In some cases, a spinal anaesthetic, where you’re unable to feel anything below your waist, will be used.

 

Usually can be done as a day procedure,but depends on the surgeon.We have a list of  well reputed surgeons at our hospital.Please call our hot line +94 117888888 and make an appoimtment with a surgeon at your conveniance  and discuss .

Also as you are a Diabetic,your sugar levels has to be in control in oder to proceed with the surgery.

There’s nothing wrong if u didn’t notice any blood in first intercourse.Not all women bleed when they have vaginal intercourse for the first time.

The reasons are

It’s the break of Hymen which causes to bleed during 1st vaginal intercourse.Hymen is a tissue that is filled with blood veseels which covers the part of the vaginal openeing.

Women are born with different thickness in hymen.Some girls have  thick hymen,while others may have think hymen.Hymen may gradually wear  away with over time.As your age is 29 this may be possible cause.There can be many reason it ca wear away with time,such as gymnastics,horseback riding,foreplay during sex etc

 

Most important bledding during 1st vaginal intercourse is not sign of being unhealthy or healthy.Its just a reflecton of how much hymen tissue you had.

 

If you  need more information regarding your sexual/reproductive health  you may  consult our resident VOG Dr.Romani

I have a fungus disease in my genitals area. It's somewhat similar to what ppl call ringworm disease and those spots are itchy sometimes. I used Medodermone Ointment 15gr which helped to control the itch for a greater extent. But it is still not fully recovered. What should I apply for a better result ?



Itchiness in genital area can be due to many a reasons.


It is true that this occurs commonly due to fungal infection. But it is of utmost importance for a VOG to see and find out the exact diagnosis and treat accordingly. Also needs to find out the cause for the diagnosis.


I highly recommend you to see a VOG without treating empirically which will give you temporary results but may result in long-term consequences.

Lower abdominal pain should be entertained in the context of complications due to early pregnancy rather than a symptom due to pregnancy per se.

If there is a possibility of pregnancy and lower abdominal pain, eventhough you are not experiencing full blown early pregnancy symptoms, you must consult a VOG immediately to exclude complications due to pregnancy. Must exclude ectopic pregnancy as soon as possible.

i like my boyfriend be circumcision. what are the health benefit for me if he get that surgery. is it harm or hurt for him?

You may contact a urological surgeon or plastic surgeon to do the circumcision.

After discussing with you, consultant will decide to do the surgery under General anesthesia (Unconscious) or Spinal Anesthesia ( Numb the lower half of the body by an injection to the spine).

One day hospital stay is enough.

With good pain control, we can minimize the pain.

 

Potential benefits

  • Easier hygiene: Makes it simpler to wash the penis

  • May reduce the risk of developing urinary tract infection E.g. Bladder infection

  • May reduce some types of sexually transmitted diseases

  • May reduce the risk of cancer of the penis

  • Prevent penile problems like pimosis

  • However, there are much more effective and less invasive ways of preventing these conditions. For example, practicing good hygiene to prevent UTIs, or using a condom to prevent STDs.

 

Critics of circumcision

  • Recued sensitivity- an uncircumcised penis is more sensitive than a circumcised penis, meaning that circumcised men may experience less pleasure during sex.

  • Potential complications of circumcision- these include excessive bleeding, post- operative infection and, increase cases, injury to the urethra.

 

Circumcision does not affect fertility, nor is circumcision generally thought to enhance or detract from sexual pleasure for men or their partners.

Hello, my name is Nick and I am an Australian travelling through Sri Lanka and currently staying in Marissa, Southern Province.

I was wondering if I would require making an appointment or would I be able to just arrive at the hospital without a booking. I also wanted to enquire about the cost of the appointment as I am not a Sri Lankan national and am a foreigner on a tourist visa. Look forward to hearing from you, Nick

Hi, There is a Bump (cyst might be the correct name) in my chest since two or three years there was no pain or such. But from yesterday onward it's starts paining specially when my T-shirt touches it and when i'm raise my hand. Around months back i showed this to a general doctor in a dispensary and he advised to do a little surgery to remove it (which it wan't take even 20 mints). but i'm kinda scared of doing it in there. If i do this little surgery in Hemas do i have to stay? So please advice me on this.

Kindly show it to a plastic surgeon. 

If it is an uncomplicated cyst, you should be able to go home in couple of hours or soon after surgery. 

Usually these surgeries are done under local anesthesia. So you will not feel pain and you will not be unconscious during the surgery.

i get excessive sweating in my palm, sole and my whole body. so i need best answer for avoid or reduction it

Excessive sweating is often benign.
But it may be a symptom of underlying pathology.

Because of that, I recommend you to see a good VP and exclude any underlying pathology before you taking any treatment for sweating itself.

If you do not have to worry about any contributing diseases, VP will prescribe you the medication to overcome the excessive sweating.

I had a feeling of fullness in my right ear 3 weeks back and visited an ENT surgeon.He told me that a there is a tick in my deep ear canal and prescribed dextrose in glycerin ear drops for 5 days and to return in another week.on the next visit the dr syringed my ear.Now i can see some milky white thick powdery stuff in my ear attached to the ear canal(not falling out,but ipoked in ear using a hair pin and saw the powdery stuff clearly in the hair pin).some itching is there but no pain and also no ear wax.Please advice.

Difficult to give an answer without seeing directly. Benign excoriation of the skin or the crusted ear drops may appear like this. 

But we are dealing with the ear. And, any infective discharge has to be excluded by seeing directly into the affected ear. 
So, I thoroughly recommend you to go and see your ENT consultant without delay.

My father 75 yrs old, has a big external out growth on facial skin (sized in a big weralu) just under the left eye.He told it is because ,he had fell down a year before and because of that, the place hit on the floor. So my question is which kind of doctor should I consult ? Should it be removed ? How much will be the operation fee in your hospital ? thank you

It is very difficult to come to a diagnosis without seeing the patient. 

Probably having a benign sebaceous cyst due to the obstruction of the hair follicle in the facial skin. 
A blood clot is unlikely after 1 year.

So you must take your father for a consultation.
 
I recommend you to see a plastic surgeon ( if cosmetic aspect is concerned significantly) or a general surgeon. 
So, as the first step, go to consultant for a proper diagnosis and to see if a surgery required. 

If a surgery is indicated, then depend on the surgery we will be able to give you a rough idea about the charges.

HI my girl friend is 24 she keeps loosing weight and looks really skinny and week. which doctor should we see about this matter?? thanks

There are many causes for weight loss; metabolic, hormonal, psychological etc. 

It is of utmost important to diagnose the cause for the unexplained weight reduction.                                                                                                                                               
So, your target should be to diagnose the cause for the weight reduction + a proper plan to increase the weight depending on the diagnosis and her health status. 

I recommend you to take her to a good consultant physician as the first step to find out the  cause. 
Then, depending on the cause for the weight loss, the physician may refer the patient to a subspecialty expert +/- dietitian.
  
Good luck!

My Wife is now pregnant 10 weeks. we have got FBC and got to know her Hemoglobin level is low (10). is it advisable have to have iron tablet.

During pregnancy we commonly see lowering of Hemoglobin levels due to dilution of blood. 

But Hb level of 10 at early pregnancy may warrant investigation for an underlying pathology. 

I strongly recommend your wife to consult your Obstetrician soon possible to 

  1. Get advice regarding the correct dose of Hb and other vitamin supplementation 
  2. Get the consultant opinion regarding the need to investigate further for an underlying cause. 

If your wife has previous Hb level reports, take them with you when you are going to  meet your obstetrician.

Good luck !!!

Doctor, my pains have problem of phimosis.could I known how do that surgery from your hospital & how much charge for that? Whereas that service available in Galle Branch?

Phimosis is best treated by the urological surgeons.
 
Our expert urological team in Hemas Thalawathugoda is doing this surgery routinely. 

Since you are an adult, most  probably it can be done under local anesthesia, ie. without making you unconscious. Just have to numb the area with a local injection before the surgery. 

I suggest you to meet a uro-surgeon urgently and get yourself cured as any delay may lead to complications such as kidney problems, local infection and strangulation and necrosis of distal part of the penis.
 
You may call our hotline number at Hemas Thalawathugoda and make your appointment over the phone without any additional fee: 0117888 888

The hospital fee for the surgery is roughly around Rs. 15000. But this value doesn’t include the surgeon fee.

how to get rid of acni and blackheads

Without treatment dark spots & permanent scars can appear on the skin as acne clears. But virtually all the cases of acne can be controlled treatment of acne depends on the severity.

So, I highly recommend you to see a dermatologist to identify the severity of the acne and get the appropriate medicines depends on the severity of the acne you are having at the moment. Also, the consultant may look at the medicines you are taking at the moment, if you are on medication for depression which may worse acne.
