Do I need to report pelvic abscess as a long-term health condition, or does it go away after being treated?

Part of Med history: It usually does go away with treatment, but it remains as an important factor in your medical history. The fact that you have had a pelvic abscess would increase your risk for future infections, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic pain, and impaired fertility. Your doctors will be in a better position for future diagnosis and management by knowing all of your medical history. ...Read more

After catching stds i know it takes years but how many years does it take long term illness such as pelvic diease to show syntoms?

After catching stds i know it takes years but how many years does it take long term illness such as pelvic diease to show syntoms?

Usually a few weeks: Some cases of PID never cause symptoms. A woman can have infertility or tubal pregnancy from past PID and not know until tests show blocked or scarred tubes. When PID does cause symptoms, which it usually does (pelvic pain, often with fever), they usually start within a few weeks of catching gonorrhea or chlamydia. But once in a while, PID symptoms may not show up for a few months. ...Read more

How long does it take for a moderately lg pelvic hematoma to go away by itself. Result of pelvic fractures.

Weeks: Hematomas can take weeks and even months to completely resolve, especially if they are sizable. I suspect the pain that you have (from the fractures and the hematoma) will likely resolve within about 6 - 8 weeks, probably long before the hematoma actually resolves. ...Read more

Since TAH 3 years ago laparoscopy found sigmoid to be adhered to pelvic side wall by dense omental and bowel adhesions. What is long term implication?

Adhesions: the main issue would be if you developed issues in that area of the bowel later in life. It may make surgery more difficult. Otherwise if you don't have any issues now, you likely won't as a result. ...Read more

How old do you have to be to go to a rehab center and how long to stay for pt after broken pelvis?

How old do you have to be to go to a rehab center and how long to stay for pt after broken pelvis?

See below: Some rehab hospitals have pediatric units but most do not. There is no particular age requirement. With regard to a broken pelvis, the answer to length of stay will depend on the extent of the injury to the pelvis, where the pelvis was fractured, if the person is able to bear weight on the legs as well as many other factors. I would expect at least one week and maybe up to 4 weeks in most cases. ...Read more

What to do if I have severe pain in the pelvis and hamstring area in consequence of stopping excercise?

What to do if I have severe pain in the pelvis and hamstring area in consequence of stopping excercise?

Not quite sure: without an exam, I can only give general information, but generally I stop the exercise BECAUSE of the pain, I don't get the pain because I stopped the exercise. And, groin and hamstring pulls take a LONG time to heal up. REST. Anti-inflammatory, warm shower. These injuries need evaluation and phys therapy to get beck to working out. ...Read more
