  Hi Veena,

I was suffering from the same problem a year before ans was operated for the same now i feel much better i am able to continue my day to day work and the pain has reduced but there are post operative care to be taken and above all you should consult a experienced spinal surgen.I assume that you have aslo taken the cortisan shot .However certain restrictions after surgery are : should not lift weight, should avoid bending down directly. You can mail me for further queries. All the best.

Good doctor for RA
  Sent by Arun Kumar (Gurgaon) , 11 October 2008
  I see many questions on RA and advice for a good RA doctor/ surgeon.
I have with me daughter of mt friend from Chile, who is 33 years old and she is suffering from JRA since she was 9 years old. Her Left Hip was replaced totally in 2002 in Chile. Thereafter, in 2005/2006 she needed Cervical Operation for C-1 and C-2 and right knee replacement. Both these operations were costing about US $ 20000 each in Chile and she could not afford it. I invited her to India and she came in Dec 2005. Her Cervical Operation was done by Dr Sudhir Tyagi in Apollo Hospital, New Delhi in Jan 2006 and her Right Knee was totally replaced by Dr Yatinder Kharbanda in thee same hospital in Feb 2006. She came to me on wheel chair and had to use crutches to get up from the chair and walk inside the house but she went back walking. Both these operations cost about Rs 2,75,000 each that is about US $ 6000 that is one third of the cost in Chile.
Now in 2007 her right hip needed total replacement. In Apollo the cost was about Rs 3,00,000 which she could not afford. We inquired in Paras Hospital, Gurgaon and showed her to one Dr Anuj Dogra. We also found out that Dr Dogra has so far successfully replaced about 270 hips. So we agreed this time for Dr Dogra and the operation was very successfully done in Sept 2008 and the cost came to Rs 1,40,000.
I hereby recommend Dr Anuj Dogra for RA treatment. Dr Dogra is easily approachable also and his behavior with patients is very sweet.

Extra bone growth & athelete feet problems
  Sent by tamigato (Macau) , 04 May 2009
  To improve the pain of extra bone growth on your feet and the athelete feet conditions, soak 15 mins daily in diluted rice vinegar hot water. Rest and then take a shower and wash your feet with disinfectant soap. Before sleeping rub Vichy Dry Foot Cream on your feet and also rub the painful area of your feet with Voltaren cream. You will notice improvements in three days time. Good luck!

I am suffering from Sciatica pain in my right leg below the knee whilst walking. Spine Surgeons recommend operation which most people I talk with advise against. Have tried accupuncture (taken 40 sittings) but except temporary relief not much improvement. I feel very handicapped as I cannot walk more than 10-15 minutes as the severe pain starts. I understand there is laser treatment for it. I would be grateful if anyone who has taken laser treatment or any other treatment with success to share their experiences. Thank you.
