I have severe abdominal swelling since my supracervical hysterectomy, I am 10 weeks post op & have 54 ALT blood test for liver, did surgery cause it?

Not sure: Mild alt elevation is not unusual after any surgery. The abdominal swelling is concerning and you should really be examined by your gynecologist. Sometimes it takes awhile to feel normal afterwards, but it is difficult to assess online. ...Read more

Daughter is 13. Had blood test two weeks ago. Flew back from spring break Sat. Arm swelling and a lot of pain started yesterday.

See a doctor!: Travelling by plane increases risk for blood clots, usually in the legs. However, it's possible your daughter developed one in her arm. Second, if the painful arm is the same arm where she had a blood draw, she could have an infection. Third, what happened during Spring Break? You may never know, but experiments (injection drugs) and accidents (falls) occur. You care, so get her in ASAP! ...Read more

Ankle swelling : Swelling can be weakness of your veins not returning blood to heart as quickly as before. You can help flow of blood and prevent further weakening by elevating legs every 2 hours for 10 to 15 minutes. Reasons are mechanical, metabolic, cardiac, renal and infectious. If elevation intervals during day do not help, get compression socks, supportive shoes and see doctor to rule out more causes. ...Read more

My blood test for thyroid came back negative but I have visible throat swelling. What could it be?

My blood test for thyroid came back negative but I have visible throat swelling. What could it be?

Get an ultrasound: The blood test does not rule out the presence of thyroid nodules/goiter/inflammation. It just tell you that currently, the throat swelling is not disrupting the ability of the thyroid to produce hormone. The best way to look at the physical aspect of the neck is through thyroid/neck ultrasound. I agree with the need to measure thyroid antibodies to see if you have autoimmune thyroid disease. ...Read more
