  8. Hi @andrewlim_11,
    Do you strain when you pass motion and urinate? The lower abdominal pain may result from an excessive rise in intra-abdominal pressure from straining. Occasionally it can also be because of abdominal wall conditions like hernia, urinary tract conditions like prostate enlargement or intestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. If your symptoms are recurrent and are bothering you, it's best to get it checked by a medical doctor.

  10. Its a difficult problem. Cartilage is the holy grail of orthopaedics - it has no regenerative capacity and once damaged, is almost always progressive. We  proactively diagnose cartilage defects and treat them to try and slow down progressive worsening, damage elsewhere to the joint and of course reduce pain and swelling caused by cartilage damage.

  18. Dear Goldenwhiskey, the Pneumococcal and Influenza vaccine is strongly recommended for certain groups of patients (e.g. age >65, with other medical conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, ischemic heart dieseases, etc). For a young healthy 54 year old, the vaccines are still recommended, as you can still be susceptible to the infections. Do not worry, as allergy to Chloroquin is not an contraindication towards the 2 above-mentioned vaccines.
