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

I got a pelvic exam done yesterday and my dr. Told me my uteus was pushed back. What does that mean?

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.

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

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

I was told I have a pelvic mass do too fibroids what can I expect?

Unpredictable: First of all it is unusual to get a first time diagnosis of fibroids at age 50 unless they are very small. They really should not be large and growing at that age. That would slightly increase the risk of cancer. But fibroids may cause no symptoms, or they may cause pain, bleeding, constipation, etc. Depends on number, size and location. ...Read more

I have a pelvic mri tomorrow morning and I was told to take an enema.  I was only able to keep in in for about 1 minute.

Inform ordering doc: Make sure you inform the doctor (whoever ordered the MRI) & the Radiologist (at the MRI center) about the above. Tell them as soon as possible & ask if there are any alternatives or if they have any different instructions for you prior to the MRI. A lot will depend on what the MRI is trying to diagnose & what symptoms you are having. They won't necessarily cancel the MRI. Good luck! ...Read more

Maybe: Fibroids are very common in women, reported to occur in up to 70% of all women. The issues is whether or not symptoms are present. Common symptoms are abnormal bleeding, pelvic pressure, pelvic pain, menstrual cramps and changes in menstrual flow. There are 2.54 cm per inch for comparison so this fibroid is approximately 6x6x1 cm in size. Not huge but not small. The key is symptoms. ...Read more

Not uncommon: usually based on estimated measurements made at first Ob exam.

Who should do a pelvic exenteration if I am told it should be done for ovarian cancer?

Who should do a pelvic exenteration if I am told it should be done for ovarian cancer?

Pelvic exenteration: If you are told you need a pelvic exenteration for ovarian cancer, a gynecologic oncologic would do the surgery. This most likely means that you have disease involving your rectum and that a posterior exenteration (removal of uterus, part of vagina and rectum) is needed to render you disease free at the time of surgery, good luck! ...Read more

Had a pelvic examination and was told I had a bulky womb and have been sent for ultrasound. What does this mean?

Had a pelvic examination and was told I had a bulky womb and have been sent for ultrasound.  What does this mean?

Pelvic Ultrasound: "Bulky" probably just means "enlarged". Pelvic ultrasound is used to evaluate uterine growth. Assuming you aren't pregnant, you could have fibroids, adenomyosis, or ovarian cysts (which can be confused with uterine enlargement depending on their location). Ultrasound is an easy test to have done, there is no radiation, and it is minimally uncomfortable. Also, you can expect a probe in the vagina. ...Read more

Ii just had an pelvic ultrasound where i i was told that I have a lot of follicles, what does that mean, can I get pregnant soon?

Ii just had an pelvic ultrasound where i  i was told that I have a lot of follicles, what does that mean, can I get pregnant soon?

See long answer: Us can identify the number of follicles in the ovary but fertility is dependent not only on the number of follicles but when the egg is released from the follicle. This usually occurs when the follicle is between 18 – 23 mm. Also, the endometrial stripe changes dynamically throughout the menstrual cycle and the ideal time is usually when there is the tri-laminar or “triple stripe”. These are dy. ...Read more
