What Is Urine Bladder It Is Seen In Distended State With Echo Free Lumen
My ultrasound report says "gall bladder is distended show smooth walls, lumen is echo free, common bile duct is not dilated" What does this all mean? Should I be worried?
Gallbladder U/S: This sounds like a normal report. Echo free means no stones or polyps were seen. No bile duct dilation is normal. Gallbladder distention can be normal (it fills with bile then contracts to release the bile with meals). Of course, the report should be interpreted by the ordering physician, taking into account your symptoms that led to it being ordered in the first place. ...Read more

It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more

Separate problem: Protein in the urine is a separate problem from gallbladder sludge/stones and can be serious. Kidney damage that can lead to kidney failure is associated with protein in the urine. Okay to talk to your doc about additional risks for kidney problems, (diabetes, hypertension, elevated phosphorous). Also okay to ask about surgery referral for cholecystectomy. ...Read more

Does it stand to reason that floating stool in the absence of fat malabsorption(normal CT scan and 72hr fat test isn't be caused by pancreatic cancer?
Floaters: 99% of floating stools are caused by trapped gas . This is the truth in spite of what you might pick up from 'pop' accounts. It happens to me if i chew gum. Congratulations on not using tobacco. Keep an eye on the stomach issues -- and if the pain changes, consider a check once again. And if you have malabsorption or maldigestion, it's much less subtle than just a floating stool. ...Read more

My residual urine is 60cc as revealed by repeated sonographies. My prostrate is 18gms and have to urinate often scantily. I don't feel bladder emp?
My urine is often foamy but when it was checked, protein level was fine. I have stones in the calyceal diverticulum & flank pain often. Is this common?
Not really: These are 2 different entities. "Foaminess" to urine is not necessarily an indication of proteinuria. Having it checked was. Many people have kidney stones that remain in the kidney as they grow older. The main thing is prevention, which include drinking enough fluids to make at least 2L of urine per day. I see you have herniated discs, which may suggest that your flank pain may be neuromuscular. ...Read more

Blood in urine: Although uncommon in children, pain on urination can be caused by kidney stones. The more common cause is a urnary tract infection. A urinalysis and urine culture is the first step. If the urine culture reveals a bacterial infection, ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder will be a more useful test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean " the gallblader is physiologically distended" in an ultrasound report. Had fasting for 12hours before the test?
Probably: Means that the gallbladder is normal, as fasting for 12 hours before the ultrasound would be expected to cause the gallbladder to retain bile and become full or distended. Eating causes the gallbladder to empty its bile fluid. It is expected that one would not eat before the ultrasound so the gallbladder can be seen properly. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a gangrene gall bladder with no pain only fever and nausea? HIDA scan showed 15% EF. ultrasound normal.
Highly unlikely: This life-threatening condition is an acute medical emergency. If the doctor believes a patient has gallbladder gangrene, the recommendation is immediate surgery. If the patient is not stable for surgery or if severe infection has set in, the doctor will treat the patient with antibiotics with the goal of quelling the infection so a surgeon can operate. Anything is possible but this is not likely. ...Read more
Urologist sent me for tests because of kidney stones. Parathyroid hormone level is at 85.8. Calcium in blood is 8.6. What does this mean?
Kidney stones: I am a little surprised that you have kidney stones with the numbers you present. Calcium is a bit low and PTH a bit high. If the Urologist has not discussed this with you please call him! If the Urologist did discuss this with you but you are still not sure how good or bad this is (independent of kidney stones) , you must see the Urologist. Please let me know what develops. ...Read more

Maybe: You should discuss this with your doctor. Do you have underlying liver disease and would be at risk of a problem in the liver? Liver cysts are usually hypoechoic not hyperechoic. Adenomyomatosis is a benign condition and is not thought to predispose to cancer. Please follow up with your MD. ...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
