Symptoms Of Patent Urachus
See details: During fetal life, there is a connection between the umbilical cord and the dome of the bladder. It usually obliterates before or soon after birth.

Several symptoms.: A (p)persistent (d)ductus (a) allows blood to be shunted from the aorta to the pulmonary artery therefore causing more blood to go to the lungs. If the PDA is large, the increased blood flow to the lungs will determine a faster rate and work of breathing, the heart will enlarge and failure to thrive (grow appropriately). A PDA can and should be closed by a cardiologist or surgeon. ...Read more
Most likely: A swollen external hemorrhoid. I would watch for now. If increasing pain, swelling or bleeding or if it doesn't go away in a few days, see a colon and rectal surgeon. Warm tub soaks for 15-20 minutes may help resolve. But if not, you need a proper exam. ...Read more

If the Misoprostol doesn't cause complete evacuation of the uterus, then your doctor may recommend either additional doses of the medication or a dilation and curettage. I'm sorry you're going through this, I wish you the best. ...Read more

A wound can become worse and cause systemic illness if it is left untreated or improperly treated. ...Read more
