My usg says " pelvicalyceal fullness in left kidney/'. what does it mean?

There are blood tests that are commonly done to help assess the risk of the genetic abnormalities during the 1st and 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Contact your doctor to determine if these were done and schedule a visit to discuss the sonogram findings in detail. ...Read more

This could aggravate your rc pain and possibly increase the size of the tears! ...Read more

What test can check to see if I have a Soy intolerance? Not necessarily a full blown allergy, but just a mild to moderate intolerance.

What test can check to see if I have a Soy intolerance? Not necessarily a full blown allergy, but just a mild to moderate intolerance.

It is difficult: The only reliable approach to determining food intolerances or sensitivities is to use avoidance and provocative food intolerance testing, i.e. an elimination diet followed by a “challenge” to see whether a suspect food really does set off a reaction. If possible do the food test "blind" so you don't know if the suspect food is present or not in order to rule out any psychological bias. ...Read more

Rotator cuff have bilateral full thickness tear 10mm anterior to posterior and 11 mm medial to lateral is this surgery painful does this mean 2 tears?

They're fixable: We generally think in terms of centimeters - if both shoulders have similar size tears, then they are in the 'small' category, 1-2 cm in size.
As long as the tissue quality is good and the mris are recent, they should be repairable, likely arthroscopically.
However, the full recovery time is in the 3-6 month range regardless. As for pain, that depends more on the patient than the surgery. ...Read more
