Possibly: choosing foods with low fat content and low grease may help you go longer periods without a gallbladder attack but it is not a sure bet. if you have had several attacks of abdominal pain and the appropriate workout for a gallbladder, you may want to see a surgeon to have your gallbladder removed to avoid future attacks and possible complications.

A 21-year-old member asked:

I have very severe ic. Should I have my bladder removed?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
No: Bladder removal is drastic and almost never indicated unless your bladder has contracted to thimble size. Have u been on an ic diet, made efforts to reduce stress and seen an ic specialist?. You certainly should try having an interstim device implanted before thinking about having your bladder removed. Unfortunately you might still have ic like pelvic pain after cystectomy.
A 21-year-old member asked:

Are there any medications that can prevent my recurring bladder infections?

Antibiotics/cranberr: Best to find out if there is any treatable cause for your utis. R u drinking enough? Nightly Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin) can prevent recurring bladder infections. Some people find that cranberry juice or cranberry capsules can help to prevent them.
Dr. Daniel McGee

As Dr. Klauber mentioned cranberry extract capsules can be helpful for prevention. One can also try cranberry extract capsules with D-Mannose included. The cranberry helps keep bacteria from adhering to the bladder wall and the D-Mannose is a sugar that attracts the bacteria so it can be excreted in the urine without allowing time for it to hang around in the bladder and cause infection.

How can you get bladder cancer if you're constantly urinating?

1 doctor answer4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Simon Kimm

In other ways.: The development of bladder cancer has little to do with the frequency of urination. It has everything to do with changes to the lining of the bladder, mostly due to exposure to toxins in the urine, such as from cigarette smoke & industrial chemicals. Inherited genetic factors play a role as well. For those that have developed bladder cancer, one of the symptoms can be frequent urination.

If someone stopped breathing during an asthma attack what would the doctors do for them?

Dr. Andrew Murphy

VEry Dangerous: If one were to stop breathing during an asthma attack then very aggressive invasive procedures would be done to save that persons life. Most likely that person would be inutubated, have a breathing tube placed in their airway, so that they could be mechanically ventilated. Depending upon others clinical conditions of pt more maneuvers would be done as well.
