Doctor insights on:
Under Distended Bladder
I had a ultrasound of my bladder and kidneys and the report said "Unremarkable Scan" but it said "under-distended bladder" so would they see that ok?
It depends: How under distended the bladder was and what your clinician was looking for. If your doc was looking for things like bladder outlet obstruction, an undistended bladder pretty much rules that out. If they are looking for things like bladder wall thickening, a collapsed bladder might make that impossible to see. But if the bladder is at least partially distended, usually the scan is ok. ...Read more
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
I recently had a CT that showed an under distended bladder and pelvic phleboliths. I am 4 years out from papillary thyroid ca. Should I be concerned?
Full bladder: It means that the bladder is full. When the fetus empties the bladder, that fluid is the called amniotic fluid. In rare cases the fetus cannot empty the bladder. Then the bladder becomes over distended which can damage the bladder. The pressure in the bladder can also lead to fetal kidney damage. ...Read more
35 wk usg femalefoetus shows over distended bladder with kidneys normal amniotic fluid normal. Is there any problem, prior tiffa normal.
Baby full bladder: Most likely if the kidneys look normal and the amniotic fluid is normal, all is well. Usually we'd repeat the ultrasound again later to see if the baby emptied in the meantime or not. If there was a blockage of the urine outflow from the bladder, the amniotic fluid level would not be normal, it would be very low. ...Read more
Ct scan showed partially distended bladder. What does that mean!? Also have microscopic hematuria.
31 weeks ultrasound, fetus showed a clearly distended bladder, no dilation in kidneys n amniotic pool was good. Ultrasound repeated next day showed same?
Not necessarily: At this time during fetal development, the urine output is very large. This large volume may give the appearance of a distended bladder. It is reassuring that the kidneys are not dilated and that the amniotic fluid is normal. It would be desirable to know the gender of the baby prior to recommending additional imaging which would have to start with an ultrasound study shortly after birth. ...Read more

Does lower ab pain, and very limited urination after drinking water all day mean that I am having urinary retentention and/or bladder distension?

Contracted bladder: Sometime bladder does not distend or fill to capacity related to scar tissue, infection, or neurologic issues. Sometimes chemotherapy, radiation therapy and other medications can contract the bladder with fibrosis. Certain kinds of surgery may interfere with bladder function. Sometimes early in life bladder does not develop to full capacity. ...Read more
Depends: Your gallbladder will be distended when you are not eating. It fills with bile and then, when you eat, it empties. This is not a problem. It is normal physiology. The problem happens when your gb is obstructed by a stone or inflammation and cannot empty. This can lead to infection and severe pain, fevers, etc. If you have no stones on ultrasound you may need a hida to see how ur gb empties. ...Read more
Yes: It is nothing to worry about. Usually in a fasting state the gallbladder gets distended. When you eat the gallbladder is stimulated and contracts and is no longer distended. If there is a stone blocking the emptying of the gallbladder than you need to surgically remove it. ...Read more
A distended: Gallbladder is caused by a stone blocking the outlet. So, eating fatty foods at this time may cause more discomfort than you necessarily would want. I would suggest seeking a PCP opinion and possibly getting referred to a surgeon for removal. Good Luck ...Read more
