I was just diagnost with bladder cancer dr said not aggressive. Not sure what to believe. Also have a protrusion like hernia on bladder.

I have cystitus, allergies inflamation bladder, hernia esaphagus, asthma, stomach inflammation nerve damage, easily get sick could it all connect?

In some way, yes: They are all connected in that they are all with you. Also, they share an inflammatory quality and probably have something to do w/ your auto-immune response. This may be helpful since getting a handle on one might improve others, but they are all challenging to health care providers. Work w/ your Drs like a team. Ask about accupuncture possibilities too. Best! ...Read more

Can groin hernias cause bowel and bladder problems?

Can groin hernias cause bowel and bladder problems?

Yes: An inguinal hernia is a hole in the muscle layers of the abdominal wall which allows a sac of the abdominal lining to come through it. That sac is open at the base and will, sometimes, allow bowel or fatty tissue or bladder to enter the sac and become irritated, stuck or in worst case injured and gangrenous.

I had a urogram to check my kidneys/bladder. Those turned out normal, but a Bochdalek hernia was noted(I read the report). Should I be Concerned?

The basics: This condition results from the failed joining of 2 membranes that form the diaphragm by the 6th week of pregnancy. Large defects allow the abdominal contents to compress developing lungs & can result in death in the newborn. Those who make it to adulthood are often without symptoms but may develop significant problems. see: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmc3043584 ...Read more
