A 23-year-old female asked:

Partial blockage: The trauma of abdominal surgery causes scar tissue to form around the bowels. The intestine is designed to move freely around the belly but scar tissue can hold parts of the bowel in one place while other parts move around and can cause blockages. Can happen anytime. Partial obstructions allow some stuff to pass but slows things down causing bloating and pain. A briefliquid diet can improve things

In this case yes.: US is used to help determine if a mass is a cancer or something less concerning. Cancer begins initially when cells stop communicating with their neighbors and start to grow faster then the rest. Before developing into a cancer the growing mass must be able to recruit blood vessels otherwise it cannot progress. Regular, smooth shape, freely mobile are all good signs if present.

Seek help: Severe depression can be very debilitating. The main problem is that the depression robs you of what you need to get better, you volition, will, or motivation. The thought of taking a shower becomes overwhelming. You need help to pull you back up. Medication helps but confide in someone what you are going through and then start with very simple goals each day like a walk outside. There is hope!
