How long does difficulty walking associated with separation of the symphysis pubis last?

Pubic symphysis : Disruption of the pubic synthesis usually results from trauma, or in some cases during pregnancy. Traumatic injuries are usually part of pelvic ring injuries and often require surgical treatment. Those injuries do not require surgical treatment will generally require three months until symptoms gradually improve. This is only an estimate and the results are based on the individual injury pattern and treatment. Disruption that occurs as a result of pregnancy or delivery is generally self-limited and symptoms resolve within a few weeks to months after delivery. In rare cases the disruption that occurs as a result of pregnancy can persist and be symptomatic. ...Read more

I'm being advised to terminate due to risk of uterine rupture what are your thoughts? The ultrasound shows a small peri sac bleed on the fundal aspect of the sac

I'm being advised to terminate due to risk of uterine rupture what are your thoughts? The ultrasound shows a small peri sac bleed on the fundal aspect of the sac

Why???: I am sorry...what is the rationale? If there is no fetal heart beat...understandable. Uterine rupture probably will not occur because of a pregnancy. There is no reason to undergo a termination based on the history given. If your doctor is concerned about said pregnancy....see somebody else. You can carry a pregnancy close to term. Chance of uterine rupture is less than 1%.... ...Read more

No fluid present in the subacromial subdeltoid bursa moderate edema seen along the fibers of the infraspinatus muscle ? What does that mean . This was due to a auto accident 2 yrs ago .

No fluid present in the subacromial subdeltoid bursa moderate edema seen along the fibers of the infraspinatus muscle ? What does that mean . This was due to a auto accident 2 yrs ago .

This : This appears to be from a MRI report. It is best to discuss the findings with the treating physician, who has had a chance to take a full history and examine you. These findings sound unremarkable in isolation. The comment on fluid is usually looking for inflammation in the bursae. If there is no significant signal of increased fluid, it is unremarkable. The edema in the infraspinatus muscle may be some fluid signal with no clinical significance. Most people with rotator cuff problems have tearing of the supraspinatus muscle first, with extension into the infraspinatus only for larger tears. The "edema" may also be normal for your age. Of note, most rotator cuff tears are degenerative and not related to a specific injury, again depending on your age. Again, clinical correlation is always best and you should go over the study with your physician. ...Read more

Placenta - anterior in upper and lower uterine segment, edge of placenta is 28 mm away from internal os, what does this mean?

Placenta - anterior in upper and lower uterine segment, edge of placenta is 28 mm away from internal os, what does this mean?

It means all good!: The placenta is far enough away from the internal "hole" of the cervix that previa--a dangerous condition that can cause hemorrhage--is not an issue. The placenta has to go somewhere--the front (anterior), the top (fundus) or back (posterior). I don't know any more about your condition but based on that info, it all sounds ok! ...Read more

After the 6th or 7th week of pregnancy does the fetus double in size, causing the gestational age to be off?

After the 6th or 7th week of pregnancy does the fetus double in size, causing the gestational age to be off?

Early pregnancy: The rate of growth of the fetus in the first trimester is very rapid. An ultrasound in the first trimester has only a 3-6 day error while later in pregnancy that error grows to 3 weeks. The gestational age is more accurate in early pregnancy and less likely to be off in the first trimester. ...Read more
