Should I trust a regular OB GYN to do a Laparoscopic Cystectomy on an 8.4 and 4 cm hypoechoic cystic lesion? Or should I have a gynecologic oncologist do a Laparatomy? Both suspect endometriomas/endometriosis but have different surgery suggestions.
Ans: Endometriosis is diagnosed by exploratory surgery. If this is what is expected why would you need an oncologist? The lesion will go to pathologist who will make the diagnosis for you.

I have a 9cm ovarian cyst attached to my bowel. Was referred to gynecologic oncologist for bowel resection. Scared ill wake up with a colostomy bag?
Small chance only : I do not know what exactly you have. However, if there is no inflammation in the area, which i believe it is the case and if the size of the colon above the lesion is not too distended and if resection is needed you should not end up with a colostomy. However, you never know what will the surgeon see/find when he/she enters your abdomen. So, if all is relatively "clean" inside, your should be fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a recurrent colorectal cancer. Just finished with chemorad.
Waiting to go for surgery however doctor mentioned stenting uterus during surgery.
Stenting ureter!: I think you mean stenting ureter, not uterus! ureter will be stented in cancer operation to avoid any injuries to the ureters. during cancer operation they do a lymph node dissection and they stay wide away from the colon for a good clean margin and to surround the cancer lymphatic drainage.and if there is a local spread to surrounding tissue, ureter will be vulnerable for injuries. ...Read more

No: Keep your appointment. The Lupron (leuprolide) injections can last for a month or 3 months depending on your dose. If you got a 1 month injection, your endometriosis may be regrowing. Could also be other causes: uti, intestinal - there is a lot of overlap in the nerves to the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus/ovaries, colon) and it can be hard to differentiate which organ system is causing the pain. ...Read more

What to take for Bloated stmoach with gallstone waiting on appointment with specialists with some pain?
Tylenol/low fat diet: The gallbladder is a sac under the liver which collects bile and stores it until you eat a fatty meal. When you have gallstones, stones block the gallbladder opening. When it contracts, it cannot empty, which gives the typical crampy right upper quadrant abdominal pain after eating and can last hours. Avoid fatty foods and take tylenol (acetaminophen). Removal (cholecystectomy) is the solution to this problem ...Read more
