Mild inflammatory stranding in mesenteric fat adj. to urinary bladder. Mild cirum. wall thickening of bladder. Bladder distended. Self cath 30 yrs. ?

I assume these are: CT findings. These mild changes are probably of no consequence, considering you have been using cath for so many years. These finding don't explain much.

U/S rpt:"Enlarged uterus lobulated contour&multiple uterine fibroids. LargestFibroids@uterine fundus' posterior wall&left fundal wall 3.1cm.Endometrial thickness normal,ovaries obscured byOverlying bowel gas" Any tests/scan/type of surgery recommend?

If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read more

Do this first. Due to 400-letter limit, end .. ...Read more
