Minor muscle injury: Nope. There will most likely not be any physical signs of minor small muscle damage. But, this kind of muscle damage should heal very rapidly and leave no permanent symptom or damage.

No period in months. I've taken several tests and they have all come of negative. Today I had a gush of fluid with abdominal pain. What could it be?

Gush and Pain?: Hmm. How long did the pain last? What did the gush look like? Blood? Fluid? What you are describing does not fit anything common. You should see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

Abdominal MRI found a "fluid filled gallbladder with no gallstones" & a 1 CM cyst in liver-can it b cause of nausea, diarrhea, rt side pain for 3+ mos?

Abdominal MRI found a "fluid filled gallbladder with no gallstones" & a 1 CM cyst in liver-can it b cause of nausea, diarrhea, rt side pain for 3+ mos?

Unlikely: If you have no gallstones and your common bile duct is the normal size, then it's probably not your gallbladder. A small liver cyst is likely to be incidental, and probably wouldn't cause your symptoms either. Go to see your local gastroenterologist for a further evaluation.

Is it urgent to have HIDA scan when have gallstones, probable blockage or mass, severe abdominal pain with abdomen fluid, no appetite/vomiting, nausea?

Is it urgent to have HIDA scan when have gallstones, probable blockage or mass, severe abdominal pain with abdomen fluid, no appetite/vomiting, nausea?

Yes: The wording here leaves to question if the gall bladder is surgically absent, so the answer is the same: Unless this presentation has been worked up, it is urgent to have a HIDA (cholescintigraphy) to rule out acalculous gallbladder disease, high-grade and partial biliary obstruction, or even postcholecystectomy pain syndrome, like sphincter-of-Oddi dysfunction & biliary atresia. Urgent=today.

7cm complex ovarian cyst, and complex right Ov cyst, dilated tube w/debris, pelvic fluid cause abdominal Bloating? Doctor is concern for ovarian canc.

7cm complex ovarian cyst, and complex right Ov cyst, dilated tube w/debris, pelvic fluid cause abdominal Bloating? Doctor is concern for ovarian canc.

Yes...: Tubal and ovarian masses can cause abdominal bloating. Most ovarian masses (75%), regardless of size, are benign (not cancer). There are many causes of complex tubo-ovarian masses including ectopic pregnancy, infections (abscess), normal physiological process (post ovulation bleeding), etc.; that are not cancer. It is good that you have a clinician following you.

In ER yesterday for abdominal pain. Ultrasound found fluid and it was assumed ruptured ovarian cyst. Today hospital called said my IUD is in my cervix?

In ER yesterday for abdominal pain. Ultrasound found fluid and it was assumed ruptured ovarian cyst. Today hospital called said my IUD is in my cervix?

Go see a GYN MD: The IUD report in the cervix by the hospital may be indicative that the IUD is no longer inside the uterus which is needed for contraception protection. Go see the GYN MD who will be able to see a partially extruded IUD.

Can a pulmonary function test be done safely with a patient with ruptured ovarion cyst and lower abdominal pain with free fluid in the pelvis?

Can a pulmonary function test be done safely with a patient with ruptured ovarion cyst and lower abdominal pain with free fluid in the pelvis?

Certainly: The required deep inspiration during the test may be limited by the abdominal pain. If a restrictive pattern is seen, this should be suspected. If you can blow out b-day candles really really hard, then no problem.
