Is It Better To Have Vaginal Or Abdominal Delivery If Morbidly Obese
Vaginal: Vaginal delivery is still considered to be the safest option for most mothers depending on the particulars of her pregnancy. Morbidly obese gravidas, for a number of reasons, have about a 30% chance of needing a cesarean section. The good news is that 70% will deliver successfully vaginally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: C-sections carry the complications of surgery and anesthesia. If the twins are presenting both head first and are size appropriate for the mother, then a trial of labor could possible be considered. In any other presentation such as breech (bottom first) then caesarian section should be seriously considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a fat, wider, probably stretched vagina; will it be easier for me to give birth and not have any tears during labor or is it the opposite.

Is there any risk in having an anal sphincterectomy if i want to have more children and deliver vaginally? Fissure hasn't heal with medical treatment.
Anal fissue: Theoretically, yes. If a vaginal birth is complicated by a 4 th degree tear, then that potentially can weaken the sphincter and a concomitant sphincterotomy could aggravate that. Sphincterotomy alone and in the right hands has a minimal chance of sphincter issues and is an excellent treatment of chronic anal fissure that has failed medical mgmt. ...Read more
How safe is it to have rough sex if you are 28weeks pregnant with a baby that has gastroschisis? Is it possible to cause premature labor if too much?
Rough sex: "rough sex" is a variable term, and depending on extent could be damaging even if not pregnant. Gastroschisis is considered a high-risk pregnancy in many hospitals and requires careful monitoring. http://tinyurl.com/kfat7ap sex during pregnancy is generally safe, but i suggest speaking very frankly with your high risk OB doctor so that you're both clear about the kind of activities you mean. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Imaging of the gallbladder is better with a short (usually overnight, at least 8 and no more than 24 hours) fast.

What happens if your baby is both extremely large and breech, is it safer to have him naturally or by c-section?
You decide: The head is part with the largest dimension that needs to transit the birth canal. In practice, if the feet come first, there is no guarantee that the head will. ( they can & do get stuck) If head first, feet and umbilical cord come after with plenty of room. Feet first, the head can also compress the umbilical cord like a tourniquet so baby gets no oxygen= likely brain damage. Answer should be ez ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If i get liposuction especially around the flanks and chest currently at around 20% bodyfat, would there be an unusual composition outcome if i cut bf significantly more after, say to 10%?
True!: Yes. Family history of breast cancer in second degree relatives increases the risk of breast cancer but only modestly. Family history in a first degree relative is a much stronger risk factor. In addition, if the family member is diagnosed younger age, the risk is higher than if he/she was diagnosed at older age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If u have smaller arteries it must be easier to get high BP than if u have big right? I mean it's less area for the blood.
Blood pressure: It isn't quite as simple as you put it because there are multiple variables involved. Pressure is related to flow and resistance, if the smaller arteries produce a higher resistance to the fixed flow then pressure will be higher. If you equate smaller arteries to higher resistance to flow, then you are more or less 'right.' ...Read more
So my 14mm abdominal aorta is not more likely to rupture than a normal aorta? It's actually less likely due to Laplace law? Can I weight lift much?
CameToThRightLaPlace: Not "due" to Laplace's Law. LaPlace's Law came about by the Laws of Nature. But like I said, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Lift away, just be smart about it. Proper posture and breathing. Even Arnold had to learn that the hard way! But I sense you need more info or reassurance so do some research on the web or see a cardiologist or internist. Or talk to the guy who ordered the CT. ...Read more
If 10 centimeters dilated and baby has not yet dropped is that need for c section? Or would that be vaginal?
Dilatation: I'm not exactly sure what you mean by saying "dropped". In order for the cervix to dilate the head or presenting part has to be in contact with the cervix. Therefore, the baby is in the birth canal. If no further movement occurs or not enough occurs after an appropriate amount of pushing or there is evidence of fetal or maternal distress a c-section is done, otherwise a vaginal delivery is done ...Read more
?: Not that i've ever heard of. Think about the relative sizes involved and you will see why this is not logical. ...Read more
