Ultrasound Shows Hydrops
Presacral ultrasound shows "thickening/edema of subcutaneous fatty tissue". PAINFUL and hard lump under the skin and can be felt. Surgical removal?
U/S is non specific: You need diagnosis. More history. The U/S adds a little but not enough. MRI would also add info, but again may not be enough. MRI would be most sensitive in seeing borders and might give useful info for a surgeon, for ex. vascularity. Only surgeons can decide on incisional bx. vs. excision. Hacking around is cheapest, but for me (a radiologist) MRI is good to avoid surprises and safe to do. ...Read more
Edema is also known as Swelling. Fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more

Mildly elevated liver enzymes 2 - 4 x upper limit 60% of tests for 3 years. Now liver enlarged on ultrasound. Episodes of edema and fevers. What now?
Consult hepatologist: Hi, the tests and the clinical symptoms that you describe warrant further work up by an experienced hepatologist. The possibilities are too numerous to discuss in the current setting. The main crux of the w/u would be to assess if the damage to the liver is not irreversible(cirrhosis); find the underlying cause to treat it. A liver biopsy may be indicated if all tests are neg. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Pregnancy 15 week, ultrasound report.,.. Turner syndrome with cystic hygroma and hydrops fetalis....., your advise required?
Your decision: in the end. These findings in the first trimester usually carry a poor outlook for survival of the baby but there have been many reports of resolution of both cystic hygroma and hydrops as pregnancy progresses. Turner syndrome will always be there. I cannot decide for you but suggest you consider re-evaluating by ultrasound in 3-4 weeks should you decide to continue the pregnancy, you will then know more about the prognosis for the baby and any associated problems such as congenital heart defect etc. see:http://www.turnersyndrome.org/#!child/c4ff ...Read more

Cushion: Usually using a cushion with a cut out (donut cushion) for 100% if sitting will allow this to resolve. Only rarely is surgical excision needed as a last resort. ...Read more

Scan showed my baby had hydrops by lungs and heart. I ended pregnancy at 26 weeks. I feel guilty constantly and can't move on? I'm having bad dreams
Get counselling: You need to see a professional counselor to discuss this issue at length. Making the decision with regret can lead to depression which will not go away until it is addressed. You must remember that this pregnancy was NOT normal and would have required special care both emotionally, physically, and financially had it lived, that perhaps you would not have been able to given. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more
