10 Golesburg Register-Moil, Galesburg, Monday, Oct. J4, Q—.fust after I had my gall bladder removed by left lung collapsed. What caused it and how serious is it? A—This is a frightening experience, but it is not serious. It occurs after about 5 per cent of all abdominal operations. It is most likely to occur in men, in heavy smokers, in persons with chronic bronchitis, in those who are overweight and in persons over 50 years of age. The cause is the ruptilrc of an air sac in a part of the lung near the chest wall but why it happens in these persons is not known. Since the practice of early ambulation or getting the patient up for a little whiirj as soon as possible after the aeration, collapse of the lung is not seen as commonly as it used to be. Q — What is elephantiasis? From what is the name derived?

THE DOCTOR SAYS Early Ambulation Curbs Possible Lung Collapse By W. G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. ts it contagious? What causes it? A ~ I note from your letter that you live in Ohio, which would mmie it very unlikely that you yourself have this disease. This is a chronic condition seen chiefly in the tropics. The legs, arms or other parts of the body become greatly enlarged and the covering skin becomes thickened so that the legs, especial, take on many of the characteristics of an elephant's legs. The cause is a tiny parasite I hat blocks the lymph passages in the affected part. The parasite is transmitted by mosquitoes so that, as in the case of malaria, a mosquito infects man and man in turn infects the mosquito. There is no direct transmission from man to man. The reason it is seen only in the tropics or in persons who have lived in the tropics is that the type of mosquitoes that transmit it are not found in this country. Q—What is the difference between spastic bowel and spastic colon? My doctor uses the term "spastic bowel" and everyone else seem to call it "spastic colon." A — They are the same. In a recent column I referred to this condition as irritable bowel, spastic colitis and mucous colitis.

My doctor found that I have multiple allergies and has suggested giving me injections of Anergex. Will this drug in any way damage my eyesight? A — This relatively new drug (obtainable only on a doctor's prescription) is made for, people like you who have multiple allergies. It is given only by injection deep into the muscle. It will cause some brief soreness in the muscle, but there is no reason to believe that it will damage the eyes or have any other serious side effects. Q—A friend claims to have lost 25 pounds in one week with a bad cold. Is this possible? I had a hard time to lose 10 pounds in one week. A—In order to lose 25 pounds in one week it would be necessary to go without eating or drinking anything but water and still be very active. This is practically impossible even assuming that part of the weight lost was water. Please send your questions and comments to Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D., in care of this paper. While Dr. Brandstadt cannot answer individual letters, he will answer letters of general interest in future columns. Celebrate 63rd Anniversary WOODHULL - Mr. and Mrs. George W.

Harvest Span Promotes Accidents Harvest season means that it's time to be even more careful around farm machinery than at any other time of the year. Accidents to farm people reach their peak during the harvest season, says O. L. Hogsett, extension safety specialist at the University of Illinois. Harvest haste, long working hours and the revolving gears, belts, shafts and snapping mechanisms of harvesting equipment make it easy for the careless farmer to have an accident. Keep harvest free from accidents. Keep machinery in repair, adjusted correctly and operating efficiently. Improper adjustment and the need for repairs frequently lead to accidents. Always be iilert and observe a few simple safety rules, cautions Hogsett. Form a Habit To be safe, make it a habit to shut off the power every time you leave the tractor seat, warns Hogsett. Then keep the guards in place. Do not wear loose or ragged clothing when working around machines. Always operate your tractor or other machines at a safe speed, and use extra precaution when you drive machinery on the high way, warns Hogsett. Obey the signs and rules of the road, and use proper head and taillights at night, he adds. "LOOK" to the Give-A-Gift VEBERS 149 E.
