Q. my son is 5 and half yrs old.he is having veezing and 75%block in one nose because of is curable he has taken steriods for one and half yrs but with not much relief for veezing. then we switched on to ayur medicines,where he had some pigmentation at some places in his body. so again we are back to allopathy. he has one nasal steriod spray now with few other medicines. in his last test, dr, said he has adenod about 75% blcok in one nose, he has prescribed medicines for one month. he has also said that a small surgery can be done to remove adenod. i would like to know how long this surgry wil take and how much of rest he wil have to take. and if this adenod is removed, wil his other problem like veezing be cured? indira rajesh

A. it's a pretty common surgery from what i remember. most of our family has any kind of nasal problem...sinusitis..adenoids...just name it. the surgery is entering through the mouth (under full sedation) and lasering/curetting - removed. it took about a week to recover , eating soft foods..and it worked!

Q. I am 30 years old I was diagonised with cyst last decDoctor said the cause behind that is food. is it curable. im my first mri 6 spots were visible and in 2nd one only one was visible and in 3rd one nothing is visible. should i continue taking medicines.

A. geetadevi - there's about a million types of cysts , all over the body. a cyst is just a name of how can a pathogen show up. so you'll have to give more info then that. and anyway- stopping medication is A DOCTOR'S CALL! not other patients (who are very nice and want to help in any way they can :) ) call.
