Mr. Riad was visiting Dubai for business purposes when he developed stomach pain and loose motions. He initially attributed it to food that he may have eaten while traveling. But since pain persisted for the whole day, he visited our hospital to meet a gastroenterologist in Dubai, where I evaluated him. Mr. Riad was an otherwise healthy gentleman in his mid-forties and did not have any other illnesses. He had been having intermittent gastro problems such as stomach pain and cramps, bloated feeling and increased gasses since the past one year. Occasionally he used to have diarrhea that used to last a couple of days. There was no weight loss of fever. In between these episodes he used to absolutely fine.

Minimally Invasive Thyroidectomy
From open to laparoscopic to endoscopic scarless thyroidectomy
The classical surgery for thyroidectomy was a charm for all surgical residents. The work up, the positioning of the patient, marking the incision, raising the flaps, division of strap muscles, exposure of gland, tying of pedicles, identification of recurrent laryngeal nerve and dissecting the gland of the trachea. The steps were delineated like a drill of a military troop and followed in precision from the consultant to the first year resident. The surgery would be conducted like an orchestra with a rhythm.
(Treated by radiofrequency ablation and antireflux surgery)
The esophagus passes via an opening in the diaphragm as it paths throughout the chest to the stomach eventually ending in the stomach. This opening is generally sufficient for the passing of the esophagus and nothing else. Patients which have a hiatal hernia have an increased opening. A sliding hernia is the most typical of the four representing over eighty percent of all Hiatal hernias. The low esophageal sphincter- the high-pressure area near the junction of the gut and esophagus- fails and allows gut contents to reflux into the esophagus. The symptoms related to a hiatal hernia are variable, but typically include Heartburn – 30 – sixty minutes after eating.

For a lot of people, the 1st time they look down at their midsection and see certainly a hernia bulging through, it might be an odd vision – and more than simply somewhat unsettling. It may likewise be confounding for all those people for whom the hernia occasionally carries on to pop in and pop from vision, making the individual second guess be it even actually there at all. The first stage in the process of healing is diagnosis by a physician and after that, for most, surgery. Hernia operation became a pretty routine procedure, and thousands of them are done by surgeons around the world every year.
That day I woke up at 2.00 am in the night with a constant sweating and severe pain on the left side of the abdomen. I had some bowel issues for the last few weeks and although I was chronically constipated, but this time the session in the washroom lasted a lot longer. I had tried a lot of medicines and even changed the position on the toilet seat but nothing helped. Having known all this, I was totally unprepared for the excruciating pain I experienced. My husband rushed me to the emergency of Lapsurgery (the best hospital of colonoscopy Dubai), The ER doctor examined me and reconfirmed my age; 56 years that’s it. His hand on the left side sent a sharp painful sensation and I winced, even more, when he suddenly withdrew his hand. He looked quite sure and told the nurse, “She has diverticulitis”!!
