Is This Treatment Risk If I Had An Embolization Already
What is the risk of triggering menopause if I had a hysterectomy (keeping ovaries) vs if I had an embolization for fibroids?
Can't trigger menopa: Only way you can "trigger" menopause is to stop ovarian function either surgically or chemically. So as long as ovaries are currently functioning just fine, hysterectomy & embolization shouldn't affect their function. Speak w/both GYN and vascular/interventional radiologist who does embolization. Find out which is best for you (or if either is even necessary). Your Family Doc can help sort out inf ...Read more
I recently been diagnosed with svt. I decided to have the ablation done. I'm extremely scared to do this. Is this a common procedure and is it safe?
Yes, usually: In experienced hands it is a very safe and successful procedure. Volume equates to better outcomes for most procedures, meaning you want someone who has done thousands of procedures and not just a few and want it to be done at a high volume center. ...Read more
If I had an emergency c-section with my first child does that mean I will be at high risk with a second?
Need x C section: Depending upon the reason why you required c section. If there is something permanent like small pelvis then you will probably require always c sections. If there was fetal suffering or stress during the last moments of labor then it is probably a one time deal. Ask your ob. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had a tubal ligation and ablation and I am 5 weeks pregnant confirmed by hospital how dangerous is this? Is it even possible to be a viable
Not necessarily: Your doctor should discuss your history with you. Once you've discussed your endocarditis, he/she will most likely prescribe an antibiotic mixture during the procedure as a preventative measure to prevent another episode of endocarditis. Insist on a thorough discussion of the risks and benefits of the procedure. Ask questions! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I have single vessel disease, should I definitely have a PCI with stent, or when is it considered that its needed ? at how much % stenosis
Depends: The decision to have percutaneous coronary intervention for single vessel dz depends on the presence of heart failure symptoms, predictable chest pain uncontrolled by medication, or symptoms suggesting decreased flow to your heart (shortness of breath, arrhythmia, fainting, history of heart attack). If mild or without symptoms, PCI is not indicated unless a stress test demonstrates high risk. ...Read more
What do you advise if i was told today I have severe cervical dysplasia. Which treatment option is best, hysterectomy or leep?
What to do if I have had a pomeroy's tubaligation. is it possible to become pregnant after this type of procedure without having the reversal done?
Yes: A small percentage of women will get pregnant on their own in spite of having a tubal ligation such as the Pomeroy. Its also possible to have in-vitro fertilization. In this instance fertilization occurs in the lab and the fertilized embryo is implanted in a way that bypasses the tubal ligation. Best wishes! ...Read more
If someone got an abortion once, is it possible that they may have problems getting pregnan again?
What is the likelihood of having a successful pregnancy if you had chlamydia for two weeks but were treated for it?
Slightly decreased: Chlamydia can cause scarring and block the tubes. The general number based in pelvic inflammatory disease would be that you still have something like an 87-90% probability of a successful pregnancy. That number drops with recurrences so use condoms to decrease the risk that this will happen again before you are ready to get pregnant and be sure everyone gets treated. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to have medical abortion after experiencing 1 year c-section? If i will do this procedure, whats the risk and percentage to be successful?
No: 40 weeks is full-term, so you don't have to worry about being early any more. If you need to be delivered before labor starts, induction is the term that is used. If your cervix isn't open, you may need cervical ripening which can be done with prostaglandins or mechanically. If it is open, we normally use pitocin (oxytocin). Your doctor should be able to go over all these options with you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have you ever heard of anyone getting an infection after an angiogram? I recently got a colon infection after I had an angiogram.Is it a reaction
Primer on ulcers: With the advent of modern medication, we rarely have to perform elective anti-ulcer procedures. Many times gastric irritation is not due to hyperacidity but is actually a bacterial infection. But, to your question - antrectomy is the removal of the distal third of the stomach, an area which secrets a hormone which causes the upper stomach to secrete more acid. It is safe, but i suggest a 2d opinion. ...Read more
I've had IVF once and it's been successful, if i wanted to do it again, is there a treatment you can have which would determine the sex if your baby?
IVF with PGD: For couples with 1 or more child in vitro fertilization with preimplantation genetic diagnosis (pgd) is a good option for family balancing. Not all fertility clinics offer pgd for non-medical reasons. I don't recommend it for a first pregnancy. Microsort, a sperm sorting technology, is no longer available in the usa. Pgd for the baby's gender is not offered in the uk, but you can come to the usa. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
