何伯伯獨居,以綜援為活,患有眼疾(嚴重老花,用放大鏡), 2/3胃己切除,長期便秘,血液循環不好,四肢乏力,手常抽筋,腳常無力酸軟。伯伯近日眼睛十分朦朧,不知是否患了白內障,但伯伯從來沒有在眼科專科跟進,因經濟問題,伯伯難以負擔醫生費用。
經吳醫生診斷,伯伯的雙眼都有白內障,右眼比左眼嚴重。何伯已獲吳醫生轉介到眼科醫院作進一步跟進。

義工職業治療師劉先生早前探訪一位獨居長者,並為他作家居評估。

長者步行能力較弱,曾找坊間的工程公司安裝扶手。 經職業治療師評估後, 發現兩支扶手雖結構安全但其中一支的位置不能便利長者使用。 同時客廳位置缺乏扶手, 有跌倒危機。 因此為長者量度及建議房屋署為長者安裝額外的扶手。

同時, 長者家中缺乏合適的鞋具及家俱, 因此建議添置。再因應環境上的燈光及空氣情況作出建議

關節炎是長者經常遇上的病症,尤其關節退化初期並沒有明顯病徵,而且沒有完全根治的方法,因此預防更勝於治療。關節是骨與骨之間的連接組織,內有軟骨和滑膜提供一個平滑的表面,增加骨骼的靈活性。常見的退化性關節炎,亦俗稱風濕,主要是關節表面的軟骨受損耗引致疼痛、紅腫及發熱等病徵。一些負重關節如膝、髖及脊椎關節較易勞損,因此最常出現關節炎。
以下人士患上關節炎的機會較高,例如五十五歲以上、體重超出正常、關節曾受傷、家庭成員有關節炎。至於以下現象則表示有可能患上關節炎:在過去的十二個月內,有任何關節痛、腫或僵硬的情况;在一個月內,這些病徵曾出現最少半個月之久;上落樓梯或走路時,膝或髖關節疼痛;手指關節疼痛或感到僵硬;因痛楚、痠軟、僵硬或活動幅度下降而影響日常活動。
適當運動 加速復原
在治療方面,脊醫會由你的病歷、身體檢查、X光或磁力共振檢驗作出診斷,需要時亦會驗血來排除其他炎症,如類風濕性關節炎。脊醫會針對個別關節施以手法矯正治療來回復關節的正常活動,亦會利用肌肉刺激電流、超聲波治療等紓緩筋肌和消除炎症。
關節炎患者不適宜停止所有活動,適當和適量的運動反有助血液循環,讓關節得到充足的養分,加速復原,其中伸展性運動能增加筋肌的柔韌度和關節的幅度,而帶氧運動應選擇低負重和低撞擊性運動,如游水及踏單車等,以減低關節的耗損。此外,應盡量避免進行引起炎症的活動,如一些重複性勞損的動作。

老有所醫:進食後持續上腹痛 恐患膽囊結石


膽石一般是指膽囊結石,膽囊則是整個膽道系統一部分,肝內膽管收集由肝細胞分泌出的膽汁,經膽總管儲存在膽囊。進食後的刺激會令膽囊收縮,把膽汁經膽總管排進十二指腸與食物混合。膽汁中的鹽會使脂肪乳化,增加胰脂肪酶作用面積,促進脂肪酸吸收。除了膽鹽,膽汁內還有膽色素和膽固醇,前者是血紅蛋白分解物,決定了膽汁顏色,後者則是膽汁酸的前身。

病者以中年女士較多

膽石形成主因是膽汁成分失衡,令部分物質處於飽和而結晶成膽石,再慢慢增大。依成分區別,常見膽石為膽固醇石及膽紅素石,以位置區分,有肝內膽管結石、膽囊結石及膽總管結石,以膽囊結石較常見。結石亦可經膽囊管排入膽總管,引致膽總管結石相關毛病。膽囊結石患者以中年女士稍多,其他風險包括肥胖、嗜吃脂肪食物、妊娠時或產後、賀爾蒙異常、暴飲暴食或節食減肥等。

大部分患者未必有病徵,膽囊結石病徵多是在進食後出現持續上腹痛,這是因為結石堵塞了膽囊出口。如堵塞持續可引致更嚴重的急性膽囊炎,病人會發高燒、腹痛伴腹膜炎及肝功能異常。急性膽囊炎可併發膽囊壞死、化膿、穿孔。炎症反應更可引致敗血病,多重器官衰竭及死亡。

可進行微創手術切除

膽囊結石可由腹部超聲波檢查診斷。若要仔細評估膽囊、肝臟和膽道系統,可用增強電腦掃描或磁力共振檢查。要徹底治療膽囊結石,以手術切除膽囊為標準。

手術時機尚未有確切定論,一般以病徵或併發症為主,並考慮病人情況。大多數手術為微創手術,需時約一至兩小時,住院一至兩天,恢復時間約一星期。
