I want to tell you about how I fight against cancer( A. Pornev).I was diagnosed with a diagnosis in the United States, and an operation was performed there. After the operation - radiation and chemical therapy. Now I am considered an invalid of the 1st group. But I did not give up. Developed a treatment plan on the principle of "Help yourself" Traditional medicine has done its work, then it is powerless. And I decided to fight with all available methods. Here's my daily routine.
1. "Inner smile". You need to sit in a comfortable chair or chair. To smile to myself and mentally say: "The world is beautiful." It's so good that I live. "And so 3-5 minutes.
I remember working in Canada, I always saw how in response to a greeting and a request for health, Canadians say: "Fine. And you?"On the soul, maybe, the cats scratch, but, it is necessary to say "Perfectly" This is not only for the interlocutor, it helps you to reduce stress.
2. Meditation. I have to get dressed in everything clean, sit in.comfortable chair or on a chair. It is better to do this all the time in the same place. Before yourself it is good to put a bouquet of artificial flowers. It is better to place the clock so that the dial "does not look at you", but the time was still visible. It is necessary to drive away all extraneous thoughts and to repeat the word mantra to oneself. Choose a word from the six letters in the second syllable of which would be the letters "n" or "m", and remember. This is your mantra. Closing his eyes and mentally repeating the mantra, sit motionless for 20 minutes in the morning. If you want to scratch or move, endure, and it will pass.
3. Contrast shower. First cold 15-17 ° C, starting with the foot, up, then down. Then warm 43-45 ° C shower from the neck down, then up and down again. And so, alternating cold and warm water, a total of 10 times one minute. Less is harmful.
During this procedure, do not use soap. You will feel relieved. Your pores will open. This is a very important procedure.
4. Breakfast. It is better to eat dishes from non-cereal grains( for example, watered with boiling water, oats), eggs in a "bag", then boiled, bread black or with bran. More fruit. After breakfast( no less than an hour), you should take UPSA with vitamin C and Centrm( vitamins and mineral salts).Then Bittner's balm( 1 teaspoon) and Cavinton.
5. Work. 1-2 hours.
6. Walk on unloaded traffic lanes.
7. Lunch. More cooked. Less fish and salt. Vegetables. Tea( preferably green).
8. Rest ( preferably a dream).
9. Exercises for the head, for the waist, for the legs. Dumbbells( 3 or 5 kg), then - an exercise bike. On my right hand I always wear a bracelet of factory manufacture all the time. I wish you success.
1. Zhoster, wolfberry berries. The plant is not poisonous, contrary to the prevailing opinion. Often sold in pharmacies. Zhoster is considered an anticancer agent. It is convenient in the application of that one serving( glass) is enough for the intestine to function normally for several days.
Helps such a mixture: zhoster - 2 tbsp.spoon, chamomile - 1 tbsp.a spoon.1 tbsp. Spoon a mixture of pour 200 ml of boiling water and cook in a water bath for 5 minutes. Insist 40 minutes and drink immediately, preferably at night.
Any cancer tumor or sarcoma as a disease is a manifestation of the body's defense reaction to intoxication, contamination of its internal environment. Indeed, in medical practice it is extremely difficult to find a patient with cancer, in which the internal environment of the body will be as clean as a healthy child. But I want to add another very important aspect to my hypothesis: along with material toxins and slags, a moral, if you like, spiritual state of people with cancer is very important in the development of cancer. And most importantly, morality and spirituality for me are concepts not only ideal, but also material, more precisely, subtle. And how else can you explain the transformation of moral fall, sin into substances poisonous to the body, leading to the development of a cancerous tumor or sarcoma. If I am asked: how can I explain the appearance of cancer in an innocent child, I answer: it can be explained by the theory of karma and reincarnation.
For the treatment of cancer, we assign to our patients only yellow capillary baths. Yellow baths are hyperthermic, hot. Their temperature in the treatment of cancer should be at least 39 ° C.So Zalmanov recommended more. Why hyperthermic and not lower than 39 ° С?At the consultations, some patients ask the question: do hot baths not contribute to the growth of cancer tumors? After all, some doctors tell them that. To this I usually answer as follows: the harm that ostensibly brings capillary baths in cancer, is one of the medical-household myths. Ask physicians - supporters of this myth to bring any scientific proof of the harm of hot baths for people suffering from cancer. Personally, I have not yet seen such evidence in the scientific and medical literature. On the contrary, studying the works on oncology, you can meet dozens of scientific works of oncologists, dedicated to the successful treatment of all kinds of cancer tumors and sarcomas by various methods of hyperthermia, including yellow hyperthermic( hot) baths. I stress successful treatment.
That is, with a general or local effect on the body at high temperatures( 39 to 45 ° C), malignant cells die or are greatly weakened and cease to divide, the tumor stops growing or regresses, collapses. At the same time, which is extremely important, normal cells remain unharmed, because they survive such high temperatures! Figuratively speaking, yellow turpentine baths help our body "to separate the grain from the chaff."In addition, according to my hypothesis, yellow baths help the body get rid of a malignant tumor due to its powerful and global cleansing action.
In contrast to such an excellent, physiological, harmless, healing treatment, treatment of malignant tumors with chemical cytostatic drugs and ionizing rays is a pitiful therapeutic spectacle in which an outsider observes a large-scale shooting of both his and other cells and tissues. I hope that the smart user of medical services understands that he can not lead his execution to recovery.
Recently, publications in newspapers and magazines have become more frequent, which is called the main enemy of all women namely cellulite. This word gradually begins to be associated with the most terrible event, which only can occur in the life of the fairer sex. In fact, this shortcoming is not so terrible.
Firstly, because cellulite is not an inherent defect, which means that your skin can be cured. Secondly, it is not such a serious disease that it could lead to cancer. This opinion could develop after talking about artificial implants, which are injected under the skin of a woman in order to correct the figure. They can actually lead to the formation of skin cancer.
1. Conspiracy against cancer in children: in the twilight, you need to put the child on your knees to one of the younger relatives. Cut the hair cross-hair and cut the nails on the arms and legs, then wash the child three times: the first time with plain water, the second time salty, the third time the saint. Wipe the child with his hem and put him to bed. Melt the candle or wax at night and roll hair and nails into it. At the same time, read the plot three times, crossed and spitting. Next, in the doorway of the door of the entrance door, make a hole and immortalise the candle from there forever. Remember that never, you can not tell anyone how you cured the child, but the child should be strictly forbidden to spit on the ground, only in a scarf.
2. I know in the midst of holy holidays God's Baptism, I Ask that Baptism give healing, From tumor release. I'll walk through the days and months Before the Epiphany day, the Epiphany cold frosts, to their fierce blizzards. In the middle of that holiday, the ice is ice-cold, ice-cold.

I'll go up to the hole ice, I'm a student, I'll let go of the disease, So that the disease has disappeared.
3. Read three times, baptizing the burned place: "In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Light up to a clear dawn, and dawn to a bright light, and a burn( or stigma) to words. Forever and ever. Amen".
4. "Fire, you really do not flare up, do not rise in the warm waters, do not expand to the sides. Around you, the fire, the wall is high in stone. The servant of God( the servant of God) walks, the blue sea leads after him, as the blue sea is subdued by fire, so that he also submits himself to the slave of God( servant of God)( name). "
5. Conspiracies for colorectal cancer and polyps.

Treatment of prostate cancer can be accompanied by the following emotional reactions.
If the treatment causes side effects, such as impotence or incontinence, you may not feel comfortable talking about them, as well as about the cancer itself. Impotence and incontinence undermine your self-confidence. Perhaps you began to avoid public places and business meetings where many people are present, because you are afraid to disgrace yourself. It is difficult to survive, especially if you were a confident person before.
If you cut out the prostate gland, you may experience a feeling of emaciation, which is difficult to express in words, especially if the operation caused impotence.

The following tips will help you cope with some of the difficulties caused by cancer.
Ask your doctor any questions you are interested in and read about prostate cancer and possible side effects. The fewer unpleasant surprises, the faster you adapt.
Do not allow cancer or side effects from its treatment to change all of your daily routine. Try to live the same way you lived before you learned that you have cancer. Go back to work, go somewhere, spend time with your children and grandchildren. Try to do something that gives you a sense of purpose, meaning and fullness of life. However, do not forget that restrictions BC6 will arise. Start small and go forward step by step.
Although depression often requires special treatment, you may simply have periods of bad mood, longing.

You will wait for this event or business and enjoy it.
Do a lot of exercise. Physical exercises help fight depression and are an excellent way to relieve tension and self-doubt.
If you have incontinence problems, sit at the cinema on the last rows, not on the front, so it will be easier for you to go to the toilet if necessary. Occupy the seat by the aisle in an airplane, train and bus. If you are not sure that there is a toilet next to you, wear absorbent pads. Avoid products containing caffeine and alcohol, because they have a diuretic effect.
Cancer is too heavy to carry to one. It will be easier for you if you tell someone about your most intimate feelings and experiences. Your body and soul are inseparable - the better you feel morally, the easier it is for the body to cope with the disease.
Your natural reaction to impotence can be avoidance of sexual contacts. Do not give in to that feeling. For you and your partner can now acquire a special meaning of touch, hugs and caresses. In fact, in this way you can achieve the degree of intimacy that you have never had before. There are many ways to express your sexuality, except for banal sexual intercourse.

Stress and depression after diagnosis.
Difficulty with sleep.

Simple relaxation techniques
Relaxation helps reduce stress, which prevents normal concentration, sleep and recovery. There are many ways to relax.
Deep breathing. Deep breathing, reaching the diaphragm, and not only to the chest, has a relaxing effect. Increases the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, giving you more energy. To do deep breathing, follow these guidelines.
Sit comfortably, so that your feet stand on the floor.
Relax clothing so that nothing restricts you in the waist and abdomen.
Place your hands on your knees or on your sides.
Close your eyes if this helps you relax.
In four counts, take a slow, nasal breath. Let your belly puff up with air.
Hold your breath for a second, then exhale with your mouth as usual.
Repeat until you feel relaxed.
Gradual relaxation of muscles. The technique consists in the simultaneous relaxation of several muscle groups. First, strain all the muscles of any part of the body, for example, hands or feet, and then slowly relax them. Concentrate on ensuring that all muscles are completely relaxed. Then go to the next group of muscles.
Repetition of words. Choose a word or phrase for yourself, which will be the key to your relaxation, and then repeat it all the time. Repeating this word or phrase, try to breathe deeply and slowly and think about something that gives you a pleasant sensation of warmth and heaviness.
Creating a mental image. Lie comfortably and imagine yourself in a pleasant, tranquil setting. Try to feel this imaginary place with all your senses as if you were really there. For example, imagine that you are lying on the beach. Draw in your imagination a beautiful blue sky, smell the salt water, hear the rustle of the waves and feel the warm breeze running through your skin. At this time, your brain receives signals that help you relax.
Learn to get enough sleep

At night close the door to your bedroom or create some kind of faint background noise, for example, turn on the fan so that it does not extinguish any noise. Make sure that your bedroom has a comfortable temperature, and drink less at night, so as not to get up often to the toilet.
Full nutrition provides us with energy that allows our body to maintain strength and function in the best possible way. That is why a nutritious diet is especially important if you are undergoing cancer treatment. If you do not consume enough food or the necessary foods, your body starts using stored nutrients. This can reduce your natural immunity to infectious diseases. The more correctly you eat, the better you will endure treatment with chemotherapy and irradiation.
Nutrition of cancer patients is somewhat different from that of healthy people: by what you eat, and how often you eat. The most common rules: eat more fruits, vegetables and cereals, limit the consumption of fat and sugar. However, people who are undergoing treatment for cancer often have problems with their appetite. A high-calorie diet will provide you with energy, a sufficient amount of protein in your food will strengthen the body and help to restore tissues. Since a nutritious diet is especially important for you, the following tips will help you plan meals correctly and take into account all the consumed foods.
Increase the calorie intake. During treatment and recovery, you will need more calories than usual. Maintaining body weight at one level can be an indicator of proper nutrition. Add calories in the following ways.
Use for cooking oil, margarine, mayonnaise, cheese paste, gravies, sauces, salad dressings, sour cream, whipped cream and other fatty dressings and sauces. Do not limit yourself to bread, vegetables, eat chicken, fish and seafood. Add soups, mashed potatoes and other dishes to sour cream;whipped cream can be eaten with muesli, fruits, desserts. Fried and stewed dishes have a higher calorie content than cooked, baked or steamed.
Add sugar, jam, jelly or honey to the dishes. Choose sweet flakes and muesli, sweeten fresh and canned fruits and juices, this will increase their calorie content. A very good high-calorie snack is dried fruits.
Drink beverages that contain calories: fruit juices, lemonade, other non-alcoholic beverages and energy fruit drinks. Add sugar and cream to tea or coffee.
Consume enough protein.
To consume a sufficient amount of protein, there is not necessarily much meat. Use the following tips:
Eat every 50-100 g of poultry, fish or crayfish. Let this be not the main dish, but an addition to it. Use it in casseroles, with pasta and in various fries.
Pulses and soy products are very rich in protein and can replace meat. Soy can increase the effect of radiation on cancer cells.
Eggs - fried in any form, boiled or in an omelette - also an element of a healthy diet. Eggs can be used to make cream, sandwiches and toast.
Some cheese can be eaten with crackers, on a sandwich or melt with vegetables or pasta. Very useful snack - half a cup of cottage cheese with fruit.
Limit the consumption of milk and dairy products. Because of the disagreement of scientists regarding the role of calcium in the development of prostate cancer, try to limit the intake of milk and dairy products - especially those rich in calcium - to two cups a day to provide the necessary protein intake.
Stimulation of appetite during chemotherapy
During an illness and recovery period, people often lose their appetite. Nausea and vomiting - the frequent side effects of chemotherapy - can make food unattractive for you. To improve your diet and stimulate your appetite, follow these guidelines:
Eat always when you are hungry. Perhaps you are used to eating three times a day. But when your body is fighting cancer, you can not limit yourself by sticking to such a strict diet. If your appetite and taste are disturbed, you may find it easier to eat a little, but often. Healthy people should not eat late at night. But if you want to eat something before bed, do not deny yourself this.
Prepare food in advance and freeze it. This will allow you to always have a fast lunch at hand if you do not want to cook today.
Choose products that look attractive and smell. Some types of cancer treatment can change your perception of taste and smell. So, if the usual meat does not excite more of your appetite, try replacing it with other sources of protein: chicken, fish, eggs, dairy products.
Most cancer patients prefer soups and soft foods, as they are easier to eat and better digested. Experiment by adding a few spices to the dishes, for example, eggs, poultry, pasta. These dishes are usually well tolerated.
Try something new. Much of what you are used to eat, can now have an unpleasant taste for you. On the other hand, you may now like products that you previously did not like.
Do not force yourself to eat your favorite dishes. Especially when you are sick, do not try to stuff yourself into a dish that you loved so much before your illness. You can have a strong dislike for him, forever associated with the unpleasant feelings that you were experiencing at that moment. Try to keep your favorite treats for the time when you will feel good.
Add flavor. You may think that the food has become fresh. Try adding a little spice. You can also try to marinate meat in fruit juices, sweet wine, if the doctor permits, use different sauces.
Do not drink while eating. The liquid is very important. Drink 6-8 glasses of fluid every day. But try not to drink while eating, as this creates a feeling of fullness when you have not yet eaten your portion. Better drink it after eating.
Change the setting. By changing the environment in which you eat, you can increase your appetite. Invite a friend, put music on, light a candle, watch a video or your favorite program on TV.
If after the course of treatment several weeks have passed and your appetite has not recovered, seek advice from your doctor. A qualified nutritionist specializing in treating cancer patients can develop a nutrition plan for you based on your tastes and nutritional needs.
The fact that you are sick with cancer does not at all mean that you can put a cross on your career and you will never be able to work as before. Most people with cancer return to work. Studies show that people who have been treated for cancer work with the same productivity as their healthy colleagues, and about the same number of working days are absent due to illness.
Your work is an important part of your life, which gives you the opportunity to express yourself, brings pleasure, income and sense of your social importance. Work can be a means of rehabilitation and restorative therapy, especially if you are valued in the team as an indispensable member of the team. Many men with prostate cancer have found that returning to work has helped them regain a sense of normal life. At first you will have to adjust a little, but soon you will return to your normal schedule and activities. Before you start working again, it's worthwhile to consider and implement the following:
Ask your doctor how much you need to work to get to the rhythm faster and return to your regimen.
Ask your supervisor to change your work schedule a little or revise your duties for the first time.
Think about what you will say to your colleagues who can ask you about your cancer and how you feel.
Cancer can make it difficult for you to communicate with loved ones just when you need it most. For your family members, your illness may seem too serious a problem, and they will not know how to approach it, so it will be difficult for them to discuss serious and important issues with you. And friends who wish you good, not knowing what to say or do, and not wanting to upset you, can avoid talking to you about your health. They can even spend less time with you than before.
Here are a few tips, following which you will not interfere with your relatives and friends to give you the necessary support:
Pay attention to the "emotional schedule" of your loved ones. Perhaps you want to discuss some important issues related to your health, with family members or a friend, and they are not ready for it yet. Watch their gestures - the body language - for example, do not they avoid looking in your eyes. If they are not ready yet, give them some time. Or vice versa - someone is ready to talk with you, and you - not yet. In this case, ask to postpone the conversation without offending this person. You can say, "I know that you are worried about me, and we need to make important decisions. But I'm not ready to talk about it yet, I need a little more time. "
Not all families have an open and caring relationship. You or any family member can be so self-contained that it will be very difficult for you to discuss your feelings. Sometimes it's easier to open up to someone who is not part of your inner circle, for example, a consultant or the same cancer patient.
Call or go to relatives and friends. You can wait for them to come to you. Yes, they will come. But remember how difficult it is to come to a sick person and constantly think about what to say or do to help him. Think about how to ease this task for your friends and relatives. Talk to your busy friend about his work, ask a friend who does not really like talking, to help you with household chores, for example with cleaning the garage. Ask friends who are full of their problems, how they cope with them.
Take the help of others and do not be afraid to ask for help. There are times when you just need to help each other. Fighting cancer is exactly the time. Your family and friends are waiting for you to find out how you can be helped. When they say, "Let me know if you need my help," do not hesitate and tell them. Most of your relatives and friends will be grateful if they have a chance to prove that they care about you. Often, all they need is your first step in meeting and allowing you to help.
Only a biopsy can accurately determine if I have cancer?
Yes. Other tests, such as palpatory rectal examination or a PSA test, may suggest a high probability of prostate cancer. Biopsy is the only accurate analysis. Can the result of a biopsy be erroneous?
When prostate tissue samples are taken for analysis, the cancer can be omitted. This is called a sampling error. A normal biopsy result does not guarantee that you do not have cancer. However, sampling errors are rare.
Can a biopsy free cancer cells, allowing them to spread?
There is no evidence that this can happen. Cancer cells, not taken for analysis with biopsy, remain in the same place in the prostate gland.
Why is it not recommended to take aspirin before biopsy?
Aspirin and some other pain relievers reduce blood clotting and can lead to bleeding. By eliminating these drugs for a short period before and after a biopsy, you will reduce the risk of bleeding during the procedure. The same applies to special drugs that reduce blood coagulability.
Can a biopsy cause irreversible impotence?
No. If, after a biopsy, impotence occurs, it can only be caused by stress associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Can I deliver cancer to my wife during sexual intercourse?
Cancer cells do not leave your body and are not transmitted by sexual contact. But even if they got into the body of another person, they could not develop there, because they are connected with your body by a genetic code.
Can I control prostate cancer for several years with hormonal therapy?
Yes. Over one to three years, many types of cancer cells adapt and begin to grow in the absence of hormones. But in some men the spread of prostate cancer can be controlled with hormonal therapy for up to 10 years.
Can hormonal therapy change my voice or appearance?
No. Both will remain the same.
Is it worth worrying about the fact that you can get used to painkillers? Many pain medication can be taken for several months and even years of
without the risk of getting addicted. In the case of a severe stage of cancer it is a question of alleviating severe pain and the problem of addiction is pushed into the background.
Is radiation harmful?
Radiation can be harmful to healthy tissue if its dose is exceeded. Therefore, the amount of radiation you receive is accurately calculated and monitored to minimize damage to healthy cells.
Can radioactive grains under brachytherapy fall into other organs than the prostate?
Sometimes grains enter the urethra and are excreted in the urine. Usually this does not cause problems. Very rarely, grains can be squeezed out of the prostate gland and travel with the flow of blood to other parts of the body, usually the chest and lungs. The number of grains that can move is very small - less than one percent, - and no side effects were recorded. Now a new type of granules built into the dissolving yarn is developed, which reduces the likelihood of their movement.
Do I need to think over a spare option before choosing a method of treatment?
If you trust your doctor and agree with the treatment plan, an alternate option is not necessary. However, if you are not sure of the diagnosis, do not fully trust the doctor, do not completely agree with the proposed treatment, you may want to think about the second option. If you are considering all possible options, you'd better consult with different specialists.
What is the difference between impotence and erectile dysfunction?
These terms are often used interchangeably, but they mean slightly different things. Impotence means that you do not have an erection or it can not last long enough to perform sexual intercourse. The concept of erectile dysfunction includes impotence and some other disorders, such as too long erections or curvature of the penis.
If before the treatment I had everything in order with an erection, does it increase the likelihood that I can have a normal erection after treatment?
Yes. Younger and healthy men who had a good erection are much more likely to have a normal erection after treatment than older men and those who had erectile problems before treatment.
What if, a few months after the treatment, the PSA test shows an increase in the PSA level? Will this mean I have cancer again? If your prostate gland is not removed, increasing PSA levels may be normal, but it can also indicate that the cancer has begun to progress. Increasing the level of PSA after removal of the prostate gland usually indicates the presence of cancer in other organs - about metastases.
After what period of time will I be able to exercise again, take part in sports games, etc.?Within three to six months after the operation, you may have increased fatigue. Whether you can participate in some sporting events depends to a large extent on how active you were and in what physical form you were before the operation. Approximately one and a half to two months after the operation, you can jog, slowly swim and play tennis. With riding a bicycle or on a horse you will have to wait, as the saddle will press on the lower pelvic area where surgery has just been performed.
Will there ever be a fear that cancer can return?
Some people who have been helped by treatment manage to get rid of this fear. Others can not overcome it. But in most cases this fear becomes less and less as months and years pass. Of course, you can not forget that you had cancer. But your fear will recede further and become less and less when you fill your life, time and thoughts with other cares and deeds.
Do I need to take vitamins, minerals or herbs in tablets? Can they help me fight cancer? Usually the answer to both these questions is not. People who eat well during the treatment of prostate cancer better cope with the disease and the side effects of treatment. There is no scientific evidence that vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements can help in the treatment of cancer or allow better treatment.
Moreover, excessive consumption of vitamins and minerals can be no less dangerous than their lack. Large doses of vitamins, minerals or herbs can even reduce the effectiveness of cancer treatment, not allowing procedures to act on the body as needed. Do not take any supplements without first talking to your doctor or a qualified nutritionist.
Long-lasting incontinence after treatment of prostate cancer occurs infrequently. But if it does happen, it can cause frustration in your abilities and a sense of shame and change your entire life. Perhaps you will stop doing physical exercises, communicate with friends and try not to laugh with all your heart to not accidentally wet yourself.
Like many other men, you may be ashamed to seek help. Or you might think that incontinence is the price you have to pay for having cancer, and that you simply will have to learn to live with it. It is not true. Incontinence is successfully treated.
During urination, the muscle ring at the exit of the bladder, called the internal sphincter of the bladder, relaxes. The bladder contracts, pushing the urine through the relaxed sphincter into the urethra. The ability of the internal sphincter to contract depends on the lower pelvic muscles. There is also an external( urethral) sphincter, which is located in the urethra below the prostate gland, and it also helps to control the flow of urine.
Treatment of prostate cancer - surgery, radiation and cryosurgery - can damage the lower pelvic muscles and nerves that control them, which leads to urinary incontinence. Often, although not always, damaged tissues can recover within weeks or months, the muscles slowly regain their strength, and the ability to restrain the urine stream is restored.
Species not d hold m eyes
Urinary incontinence can be divided into four, categories.
Not d due to increase.
Occurs with severe physical activity that causes pressure on the bladder, for example, when lifting a heavy object, coughing, sneezing, or laughing. The weakened muscle of the sphincter can not hold urine in the bladder, and some of it flows.
The imperative urges of
You feel that you urgently need to urinate in the toilet, and you can wet yourself before you reach the toilet. This happens if your bladder is too sensitive to stretching, which occurs when it is filled with urine. The bladder shrinks prematurely, trying to push the urine out.
Your bladder does not shrink properly, and you can not empty it while urinating. Scars on the tissues of the bottom of the bladder or narrowing of the urethra can also interfere with the passage of the urine stream and your ability to empty the bladder. As a result, urine accumulates in the bladder and creates additional pressure on its walls. Urine can leak and urination can take a long time.
After you have finished peeing, you may have a feeling that the bladder is still full. In severe cases, you can not urinate, even when you feel the urge.
This category is a combination of two or more types of incontinence, such as pressure and urgency.
One of the following tests will help you determine what type of incontinence you are and how it is best treated.
Cystography. In the urethra, a contrast agent is injected through the catheter, which helps to improve the image on the X-rays of the lower part of your urinary tract and to detect an anomaly.
Cystometrography. A special device is attached to the catheter, which measures the pressure in the bladder as it becomes filled with water and released from it.
Cystoscopy. A thin tube with a lamp and optical glass is inserted into the urethra. The doctor looks at how the sphincters work.
Measurement of the urine stream. The rate at which urine flows from the penis is measured.
After surgery to remove a prostate cancer, you will need to use the
catheter for two or three weeks until the tissues injured during surgery are restored. When the catheter is removed, you have to use absorbent underwear. There are also special pads of various thicknesses, which can be worn in ordinary fabric underwear. Most men regain control of the bladder quickly enough after the operation, and they do not have to use absorbent linen - "adult diapers".
In addition to protecting your underwear, the doctor can offer you any of the below listed methods of incontinence treatment. The choice of a particular method will depend on the type of incontinence that you suffer, its severity and the likelihood that it can eventually go through in a natural way. In most men, in the end, involuntary leakage of urine decreases significantly.
Try to urinate by the hour, that is, visit the toilet at regular intervals, and not wait for the urge. You can begin to urinate every hour, and then move on to longer, acceptable intervals of time. Refuse alcohol and caffeine, as they are more likely to urinate. You will help reduce the amount of fluid that you drink in the evening. When incontinence under pressure, cross your legs under certain circumstances - when, for example, you feel like you want to sneeze. This will help you prevent urine leakage.
These exercises, which are called Kegel exercises, consist in voluntary tension and relaxation of the lower pelvic muscles. It helps to improve the condition and tone of the muscles.
you can exercise two muscle groups: the muscles that you tense when you do not want to prevent defecation or carminative, and the muscles at the base of your penis that you use when you ejaculate and when freed from the last drops of urine.
When muscle tone and muscle strength increase, it will be easier for you to control your bladder. Kegel exercises are most effective for small and moderate incontinence and often give significant improvements within one to three months.
Drugs such as hyoscyamine( Cystospaz, Levsin), oxybutynin( Ditropan) and tolterodine( Detrol), helping to cope with incontinence strong relaxing the abdominal muscles and reducing bladder contraction. You usually take the medicine two or four times a day, depending on how you carry it. Among the side effects may be dry mouth, fog before the eyes and constipation.
Decongestant pseudoephedrine, which is part of many allergy and cold medications, sometimes helps with incontinence caused by pressure. It causes the urinary sphincter to contract, reducing the flow of urine under tension. However, in some men, pseudoephedrine can cause heart palpitations. And although you can buy this drug without a prescription, you should not take it regularly without consulting a doctor.
If your bladder can not shrink sufficiently to expel urine, you will have to learn how to use the catheter on your own. Your doctor or nurse will teach you how to inject a thin, soft tube( catheter) into your penis and bring it to the bladder. Although this seems to be a difficult and painful procedure, most men, after several independent uses, cease to worry about this and feel normal. You can carry the catheter with you, and all you need to do is to retire in the toilet.
Clamp on the penis
This device is attached to the outside of the penis, compressing the urethra and not allowing urine to flow out. Clamps are not recommended, as they can damage the penis and cause scarring.
If incontinence continues for more than a year and neither medications nor exercises provide any improvement, the doctor may suggest that you resort to a surgical procedure. There are several types of operations for this case.
Narrowing of the urethra with the help of special substances. This is the most gentle operation, with the injection of a special substance that creates a volume into the inner part of the urethra where it joins the bladder. However, urine less flows from the bladder. The most common substance that creates volume is collagen, a protein contained in our body. Collagen, used in surgery, is taken from cows. During the procedure, a cystoscope is inserted into your penis and pushed to the bottom of the bladder. Then, inside the cystoscope, a needle is held containing a bulk substance. When the needle reaches the base of the bladder, the doctor injects a bulk substance into the surrounding prostate tissue, they swell and narrow the exit from the bladder.
You may need to take three or four injections before you feel better when controlling the bladder. And since our body absorbs collagen, you may need additional injections.
If your incontinence has been caused by radiation therapy, such injections will most likely not work for you, since scars formed as a result of irradiation will interfere with the collagen function.
Artificial sphincter. This method of treatment is used for severe, long-lasting incontinence. It consists in the implantation of a special device called the artificial sphincter, which acts in the same way as a natural sphincter. It is an inflatable silicone cuff that is placed around the urethra or base of the bladder. This operation is used in the treatment of urinary incontinence in less than one percent of cases.
The cuff acts in much the same way as the one that is worn on the hand when measuring blood pressure, only it is much smaller. It is inflated not by air, but by saline solution, which is stored in a tiny reservoir in the lower abdomen. You are cuffing the cuff, clutching the pump hidden in your scrotum. Manlset squeezes the urethra, blocking the urine stream. In order to urinate, you release a cuff from the cuff, which allows the urine to flow freely out of the bladder.
Most patients spend at the hospital a few days after the surgery for the implantation of an artificial sphincter. After the operation, you will not be able to use the sphincter for about six weeks until your urethra and bladder recover. The sphincter can be damaged when riding a bicycle or on a horse, unless you use a special seat.
An artificial sphincter for the treatment of urinary incontinence uses a small silicone cuff placed around the urethra. In the inflated condition, the cuff compresses the lumen of the urethra, preventing the passage of urine. To urinate, you release the cuff from the cuff, and the urine flows freely.
Electrical stimulator. The stimulator implanted in the spinal cord sends weak electrical impulses to the nerves that control the bladder. These impulses can help reduce incontinence caused by filling the bladder.
Other methods. Sometimes surgical procedures are done to remove obstructions that interfere with the passage of urine, to change the position of the neck of the bladder and to support weakened pelvic muscles.
Cancers react very sensitively to any changes in the environment, especially if they are negative. In addition, they are internally inclined to exaggerate the seriousness of their ailments, thereby worsening the real state of affairs. Be attentive to your health, but do not panic from mere indisposition.
An attitude of success is very important in the treatment of any disease. If you still get sick, try not to abuse medicines, go better to the proven "grandmother's methods."
The stomach is especially weak in Cancers, so it's worth keeping an eye on the food. The less processed one or the other product is exposed, the better.
Most diseases in cancers are caused by nerves, so try to be less irritated, control your emotional reactions.
Age changes often cause breast cancer. To detect small breasts in the breast - hematomas, which are usually not probed, a mammogram is often used. In the UK, all women over the age of 50 are required to do a mammogram once a year. Such procedures are not recommended for women of younger age, because their breasts are rather dense and it is useless to make a mammogram - it will not show anything. In addition, younger women usually rarely suffer from a disease such as breast cancer. However, those women who have had cases of breast cancer in the family should make a mammogram at least once a year from the age of 35.
Regular holding of low-calorie days will already benefit our health. It is possible that only a few days of curative starvation per year reduce the risk of cancer and that in the process of starvation cancer cells are transformed again - back to healthy. At least this has been proved by experience with animals conducted by a research group working at the Institute of Tumor Biology in Vienna. Scientist Schulte-Hermann and his colleagues either subjected laboratory animals to complete starvation for eight days, or animals received within three months only 60% of the usual calories. A liver tissue was examined in which a part of the cells die regularly during the normal process of cell destruction. Attention was drawn to the fact that during the course of curative starvation, those cells that were already in the stage of transformation into cancer cells died out.
