Is it possible to have retained placental products four months after a c-section that cause no symptoms aside from chronic inflamm. On colpo. Biopsy?

Is it possible to have retained placental products four months after a c-section that cause no symptoms aside from chronic inflamm. On colpo. Biopsy?

Not really: Four months after is too long, as you would have had some symptoms long ago if any retained placenta was in you. The inflammation in your colpo biopsy refers to your cervical/uterine cells, and not any retained placenta products. Best wishes. ...Read more

Med. abortion May 29, doc says U.S. Is showing retained placental material, 11 weeks later and I need D&C, is this possible? Or is it something else?

Med. abortion May 29, doc says U.S. Is showing retained placental material, 11 weeks later and I need D&C, is this possible? Or is it something else?

Possible: I am not an Obstetrician, but I have heard of retained products of conception (retained POC) after elective abortion. It is usually a good idea to evacuate retained POC by D&C, as the material can only be a source for infection or other problems. Retained POCs is not common, but not uncommon either - doctors do the best they can. The oldest POC foun, according to Ripley's BION, is more than 60 yrs ...Read more

I am sched for d&c for retained placental prod. This wk. 4mo postpart. Abnormal trophoblastic cells. Will pathology from d&c show gtd if it's present?

Trophoblastic cells: A thorough D&C should give enough tissue for the pathologist to examine for GTD. Trophoblastic cells are present in normal implantation sites of the placenta and these can look similar to GTD. Hopefully the pathologist can tell the difference, but it is also very important to monitor the BHCG levels. ...Read more

Is this normal with retained placental parts. "two biopsy samples showed placental site nodules with intermed. Trophoblastic cells showing sig atypia"?

Need specialist: This is a very concerning and confusing pathology report.
