Broke pelvis two weeks ago, sent to rehab ctr, was told medicare will cover only 20 days? What now?

LEAVE: Medicare is right. Unless there are complications that are reported by the physician, twenty days is perfectly adequate, if one is at a competent rehab center. If you need further rehab, and have not reached optimal functioning, you are eligible for outpatient rehabilitation and physical therapy. Get moving. ...Read more

Hello i was told I have a 2.2cm fibroid on top of my left ovary that affects my pelvic area, was given meds last november but still pains.

Fibroid vs. cyst: Fibroids or leiomyomas usually are found associated with the uterus, although they may be in other areas of the pelvis. Ovarian fibroids are usually fibroadenomas, a solid tumor of the ovary. It's important for you to be seen again if your pain persists, and get further answers regarding this condition. Did you have a pelvic ultrasound? If not, this would be an important next step. ...Read more

No clue: I have never heard of an abnormally thick cervix. Have you been getting pap smears? It could have meant endometrial lining, which would need evaluated by a gynecologist. You should ask your doctor what it means. It is hard to give am opinion without seeing the images. ...Read more

I was told I have a pelvic abscess, but they don't know from where or why? They said wait 1 mos for any changes and come back. Isn't it too long time?

Suspicious: If you have a pelvic abscess, you should at least have been given antibiotics. Small abscesses can resolve with just antibiotics. Larger abscesses have to be drained either by surgery or by image guidance (ct or ultrasound). Waiting a month with antibiotics could be appropriate if the abscess is small. If you are not on antibiotics you should ask your dr about them. ...Read more
