User : Hi, heres the problem. my belly is sgetting so big in the past few weeks without gaining one pound. Im 50 and had a hysterectomy 8 years ago. what could it be?
User : Im going to the bathroom and i do eat fiber
Doctor : ok
User : I look like Im pregnant
is the abdomen in general feeling distended? or is there localised distension on lower or upper abdomen?
User : its the lower
during your hysterctomy, were the tubes and ovaries removed?
User : I have one ovary left and had an ultra soung a month ago and they couldny find it because all they could see is stool.
Doctor : in that case i will suggest you to get a ultrasound abdomen and pelvis done, also along with this do a urine pregnancy test too.
User : I cant be pegnant I have no uterus
Doctor : you will need to prepare the bowel for the stools such that they do not create problems in visualization.
Doctor : the pregnancy can take place in the tubes or ovaries and in rare cases in the abdominal cavity itself
so get a trans vaginal ultrasound done in case the urine pregnancy test comes positive
