Good for you: "No acute process" means nothing was seen to suggest an active disease. Presumably any "significant" chronic process would be described in the report.

Doctor can evaluate: A person with "horrid pains" needs to be examined by her doctor. There are many things in the hip or pelvis area. There may be a bone or joint problem in the hip... and it may be something serious if the pain is "horrid". Inside the pelvis are organs such as the ovaries, the bladder, the rectum, etc...

Whipple 8/15. Severe upper left abd pain, recurrent fever (103), & acute pancreatitis in past 3 weeks. CT says multiple non dilated small bowel loops in abd & pelvis - says gastroenteritis. Other possibilities? Drs gave no answer for recurrent fever.
Fever: The intestinal loop pattern is nonspecific, in my opinion. I would be concerned about an intraabdominal abscess formation. I recommend that an abdominal surgeon be conducting your care with close collaboration of a gastroenterologist and a radiologist who can suggest other imaging studies likely to shed light on your case. An exploratory operation may be required, however if antibiotics don't help. ...Read more

No, with low pressur: Blowing into the urethra at low pressure will cause no trouble. At high pressure one could cause air to enter the blood stream and create an air embolism which could cause shock and even death. We use KY Jelly in the urethra but again at very low pressure. There are reported cases of KY jelly embolism to the lungs. So my best advice is no blowing into the urethra. Blow Job is a misnomer. ...Read more
