Patient discussion about past health

Q. For the past 6 months I have been trying to loose weight. For the past 6 months I have been trying to loose weight and I succeeded in that. But I feel to be heavy now. Why did this happened? Or is it just a feel?

Q. How can you get past a weight loss plateau? I have been steadily losing weight and am 19 lbs. lighter. However, over the past week, I have stopped losing. I haven't changed my diet. What do I need to do to get the weight loss started again?

A. to kick start your metabolic furnace, try and change things up on your body. Try modifying your diet. Try changing up your workout routine (and if you don't have a workout routine, add one). If you've been focusing on cardio workout regimens so far, then ignore the cardio for a while and hit the weights instead. Basically, do everything that you're not doing now. This will send your body the message that you mean business, and should get the ball rolling again. Also, you could try manipulating your diet somewhat. Try alternating your caloric intake - "low" and "high" days, to keep your body guessing.

Q. My sister is struggling with breast cancer for the past 12 years. My sister is struggling with breast cancer for the past 12 years. She has underwent surgery long back and also 3 chemo’s and 1 radiotherapy and now the cancer is grown out of the area to an invasive form. She has lost her confidence as the doctors carried out another chemo to prevent the spread of cancer to bones. The chemo makes her sick as the side effect scourge her life and the same happened with this one even and makes it difficult for her; with an infection in her left leg of big size and more awful with puss and pain, she is just struggling to have her normal life back for some years …..Now this infection is a new one not usually seen after all chemo she had and I think it’s because that this time she had chemo for invasive cancer… Is this a common occurrence from such a chemical infused in this stage and is toxic and anyone heard of such a thing?

A. Pains in cancer are quite common and must be taken boldly...My dear and it has grown big in your sister’s case…I have seen some of my hospital mates with breast cancer, had infection post chemo for advanced stage, and many even did not had and once asked to the doctor was told that it happens because of the lower immunity which a patient had and can be recovered with diet good to boost immunity. Meet any dietician to help your sister frame a diet to boost her immunity as well let her get cured from this infection and also do talk to her doctor about this ….probably they will have better ideas for her because they know her situation. Don’t worry many worse situation I have seen but those guys take it hard…and fight.
