Dull but persistent pain (6/10) in mid-back, 2" to the L of spine, below bra strap. Radiates horizontally. Worst when lifting/maintaining one position?

Back Muscle strain: Hello Due to the relative moderate level of pain, it would likely be a back muscle strain. I would say the best remedy is rest from any strenuous lifting, but you should stretch to maintain your range of motion. You could try Tylenol (acetaminophen) for moderate pain relief or a small does of naproxen (Aleve) 200 mg by mouth every 6 hours for a couple of days to relieve the pain. If this gets worse see your doc. ...Read more

My level II ultrasound shows Placenta position- "Fundo anterior lower margin of placenta 4.0 CM from internal os" What precautions should I take??

As per OB. : You did not state how far along the pregnancy you are. If before third trimester, the placenta may migrate posteriorly and further from the os. Speak to your OB for any concerns. If there is any concern on the part of the OB, a follow-up ultrasound will be gotten. There are however no precautions you should take, unless so directed by tour OB.

My placenta is anterior! does having an anterior placenta effect the feeling of the baby's movements? What is a anterior placenta ?

Anterior = front: Anterior is just another name for the front. Visualize your womb as an upside down bag, with your placenta located on the front wall and the baby behind it.Location has little to do with perception of movements.

I have fractures of the bilateral superior pubic rami rt comminuted & mildly displaced. Fracture rt inferior pubic ramus. Also a buckle fracture of the anterior aspect lf sacrum. Stable or not stable?

Hard to say: Certainly these are serious injuries, but they likely do not need surgical fixation - depends on the displacement. Unfortunately, a patient with these fractures will need to be immobilized for a few weeks in order to facilitate proper healing. ...Read more

Could be sick.: Lymph nodes often enlarge in areas of infection or inflammation. If you have symptoms in that anatomic region, then perhaps there's a good reason for them to be swollen. If not, and they persist beyond one month, you might want to consider them getting checked out and perhaps even removed for diagnosis. ...Read more

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

Pros/cons of c-section vs. assisted vaginal delivery? Baby persistently locked in posterior position, estimated 8lbs+.

Depends: That is a decision that would need to be made in the moment. Many women can deliver vaginally with no problem from the occiput posterior position. If the baby can not be delivered with pushing then options of forceps, vacuum and c section should be considered. The size of the baby, the shape of the pelvis, the position of head and the experience of the doctor are all important considerations ...Read more

What does this mean? "L1-L2 level: left paracentral disc protrusion, contacts the traversing left L2 nerve root mild posterior displacement"?
