I been having pulsation in my right side of my ribs. I have a right renal aneurysm and an aneurysmal dilation in my liver. Can be related?

Here are some ...: The bruit from blood flow turbulence in arterial aneurysm or stenosis may be felt as pulsation but very unlikely from that in the deep seated area like renal and hepatic arteries. The possible issue of linking pulsation in right ribs with renal / hepatic aneurysm should be directed with the Doc who ordered the imaging studies and has taken care of you. Online speculation would not be sure for such ...Read more

Is a sodium level of 134 low? I have an atrial septa defect & atrial septal aneurysm could it be heart failure ? I also had fatty liver but don't now

Is a sodium level of 134 low? I have an atrial septa defect & atrial septal aneurysm could it be heart failure ? I also had fatty liver but don't now

Barely: Normal lower limit of serum sodium is 135, so 134 is technically low but it will not do you any harm. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Whats the dangers of having gallbladder removed and liver biopsy if I have PFO and intra atrial septal anuerysm?

Whats the dangers of having gallbladder removed and liver biopsy if I have PFO and intra atrial septal anuerysm?

Air in intravenous: You are having a gallbladder removal and liver biopsy. You have a patent foramen ovale (pfo). You biggest risk for the pfo during surgery is an air embolism traveling from the right side to the left side of the body. Talk to your anasthesiologist.

I am concerned about aneurysms in any part of my body as well as cancer, will a full body MRI rule out these conditions?

I am concerned about aneurysms in any part of my body as well as cancer, will a full body MRI rule out these conditions?

No: Do you have a strong family history of cancer or aneurysms? There is no such test as a full body mri, i think you are referring to a total body ct scan. This may identify potential abnormalities such as lung nodules, liver and kidney masses or aneurysms. The great majority of these findings are benign but will lead to increased invasive testing or surgery, which may lead to complications. ...Read more
