Dr. John Geisler answered:

When are conditions too severe for complete pelvic exenteration?

Pelvic exenteration

If a patient has metastatic disease outside of the pelvis then a pelvic exenteration is contraindicated. A patient's physical and emotional state has to be evaluated to know if they can handle the rigors of the exent and the healing period.

Barium enema, pelvic sonogram (2001) Results: Normal. 2010. Redundant colon and a retroverted uterus. How can these conditions be congenital?

They are not

Colon
These are normal findings. The changes are associated with aging. The position of the uterus is affected by child birth, c-sections, and just plain old time. Also, the redundant colon just means your colon has a lot of curves - it's not diseased.

I have alot of pelvic pain?

C a gynecologist

Rest
Whether female or male, the question is too general to even guess. I'll take the rest of 400 characters to mention 2 key principles of medicine. For the knowledgable experienced doc, the Dx or next specific step is in the doc's questions & and patient's answers. Second, pain is subjective for that one pt, it is otherwise unmeasurable, except within the docs mind that is listening and seeing pt.

When is a pelvic MRI needed?

Certain situations

Mri
Most of the time an ultrasound can visualize the uterus and ovaries as well or better than an MRI. Exceptions are if adenomyosis is suspected or if more details are needed on fibroids, especially for pre-operative planning of a myomectomy. An MRI cannot usually distinguish a benign fibroid from a malignant leiomyosarcoma.

Can a UTI cause pelvic pain?

Yes.

Pain
If untreated a simple UTI can cause extensive inflammation in the bladder / urethra and then ascend into the ureters and the kidneys. This can be very painful and make you very sick with high fever and a significant amount of pain in the pelvis and costovertebral areas.
