Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Is it normal for Accutane to cause pubic bone pain? (the pain is right above my bladder, could also be muscle pain, seems to be worse after sex.)

Is it normal for Accutane to cause pubic bone pain?  (the pain is right above my bladder, could also be muscle pain, seems to be worse after sex.)

Don't think so: There is a small piece of cartridge called the pubic symphysis the can get inflamed. Try a different position so that area gets less pressure. Also the bladder is in there and if peeing more or having pain could be a contributor. I don't think the accutaine is adding to the problem but google it and stay off the complaint patient page. Look for pain in bone or cartlidge, not just pubic bone. ...Read more

I'm having occasional pain in my belly button region. I had my gall bladder removed 4 weeks ago. Feels like a small knot right above the belly button.?

Wound still healing: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal via scope) requires several incisions/holes, one of which is through the belly-button (see picture). Scarring is something you only get to see on the outside, but occurs inside as well. The healing may not be complete and internal organ/intestine rubbing on it on/off which may cause some discomfort. As long as it getting better, u r ok. Good luck. ...Read more

Lately when i lay down or sit i get this dull ache or dull pain around bladder area, inches above penis to the right. Could it be muscle related?

Possibly: Get checked for a hernea. If none is found and the spot can be localized to one area, aa trigger point injection with xylocaine and steroid may be both diagnostic and therapudic for muscle pain. ...Read more

I had gall bladder surgery 3 weeks ago and now I am having pain in my left side above my belly button. Why?

I had gall bladder surgery 3 weeks ago and now I am having pain in my left side above  my belly button. Why?

See Your Surgeon: It's very difficult to answer this without the benefit of the knowledge of your surgery or your physical exam findings. What i can tell you is that the gallbladder is usually removed from the abdomen thru the umbilical incision. Therefore, it is common to have pain there even three weeks later. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: It is possible that it is as simple as hitting the nerves coming from your testicle through the inguinal canal, but without an exam, you cannot be sure. ...Read more
