What are the effects of general anesthesia from surgery  on a four week fetus?

Unknown: It is hard totellwhat the effects might be because no one will do a study on pregnant women. In general, it is best to put off any elective surgery and anesthesia until pregnancy is over.

I have glaucoma and planning to conceive in 2 months.does my eye drop medication effect fetus?or is it better to have surgery ?

In an ectopic pregnancy surgery treatment, is there any possibility that the baby (fetus) will try to breathe on its own, when it's being removed?

In an ectopic pregnancy surgery treatment, is there any possibility that the baby (fetus) will try to breathe on its own, when it's being removed?

No: Rarely ectopic pregnancy will go that far if it was missed for any reason the location on the tube will make it rupture and that cause severe pain and bleeding that could be lethal . If it was discovered early they usually try medication to aborted if not successful they go for surgery . In my opinion they never grow enough to be a live fetus that able to take s breath ...Read more

How does pelvic floor dysfunction post-lar surgery, esp. dyssynergic defecation, affect pregnancy? What are risks for maternal/fetal outcomes?

Ease your worries: discuss with your gyne. Probably of no great significance. It really depends on your pelvic tolerance anatomically, and a good thinking after better discussion about this pelvic floor dysfunction. Whether this affects your capability to naturally birth, I'm not certain. Really, other than determining your proper route of giving birth, all your concerns shouldn't pose any risk to health of baby ...Read more

Pregnancy and gastric bypass surgery? What happens to a developing fetus if the b-vitamins and protein is not accessible after gastric bypass surgery?

Pregnancy is ok. : Pregnancy is quite appropriate after roux-en-y gastric bypass. Most programs ask patients to wait 12-18 months post-op to be one pregnant.

Open fetal surgery (Tip)

Be aware that there are specialists in all areas these days. This applies to rehabilitation from surgery or injuries as well.

Focus on what you have and then go from there. Some of us will pass through life without splitting a toenail. Most of the rest of us are not so lucky. ...See more
