Doctor insights on:
Distance form cervix: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri.

See below: Given your history of sexually transmitted infection (HPV is STD) you may have pelvic inflammation from another infection like chlamydia or gonococcal infection.

I have been diagonosed with a cervical disc herniation pressing against spinal canal (stenosis). Could this cause LPR (silent reflux) somehow?
Anti-acid therapy: Sounds like you need some antacid therapy to start. This should help both the gerd symptoms and the gastritis. Make sure to ask if you have H. Pylori infection as a cause of the gastritis. This needs to be treated with antibiotics as well. Forget about the hiatal hernia unless it becomes very large. Hope this helps! ...Read more
Marginal placenta pr: Usually yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?
Diagnosed with partial/marginal placenta previa (25 wks). Precautions? Worried about preterm labor, placenta has not moved up since 17 wk scan.
Try to relax!: It's still fairly early to be worried. Most patients with marginal placentas deliver vaginally without incident. If this is your first pregnancy your lower uterine segment will not soften until fairly close to term so the placenta may appear to be low until fairly late. As long as there isn't significant vaginal bleeding you shouldn't worry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Scope showed sm sliding hiatal hernia. Symps persist after 6-8 months Nexium (esomeprazole) & domperidone. Do i need surgery? Worst-pain mid&rt upper ab, fullness alwa
Perhaps: You need further work up, with a ph study to prove if you have signifigant reflux. Not all patients with hiatal hernias need surgery. If you do have reflux, with a hernia, and persistant symptoms despite medical therapy, and risk modification, than surgery would be adviseable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have just been diagnosed with anteverted bulky uterus, anterior intramural, posterior intramural, fundal subserous & fundal pedunculated fibroid?
Are you symptomatic?: Sounds like you had pelvic us and reported the location of certain fibroids in the uterus. 3 locations: submucosal (central, against the uterine lining), intramural (in the muscular middle), and subserosal (outer, on the edge). Anterior (front) posterior(back). Fundal is top of the uterus. Pedunculated means it's on a stalk (but this term is often used to describe any fibroid away from uterus). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A lap myomectomy (removd 3*3cm size-submucos, intramuralfibroids) affect my future pregnancy? I miscaried due to fibroid at 6th month.
Hopefully not: Removal of the fibroid will hopefully allow you to have a normal pregnancy, although you may need a caesarean section depending on the extent of the surgery. Your next pregnancy(s) will need to be monitored closely. Hopefully all the fibroids were removed as they tend to grow in pregnancy and may cause problems. Talk to your dr about these concerns. ...Read more

See an infertility specialist if unsuccessful in getting pregnant after 3-6 months and a maternal-fetal specialist if successful. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck! ...Read more
1st pap HPV Pos and LGSIL, Colpo Confirm, 2nd pap HPV Neg and LGSIL Pos, 3rd pap HPV Neg and AGSUS Pos. (@ 6mo intervals) Does this mean its worse?
No: It's actually good news. Women under the age of 30 often clear HPV infections on their own, at least more readily than those over 30. The fact that you no longer test positive for HPV means it has cleared, and the ASGUS just means there are abnormal cells but not abnormal enough to classify it as a precancerous lesion on the cervix. This is much better than LGSIL. Keep monitoring and good luck! ...Read more
