1. Foetal Sacral Meningocoele
3.Cloacal abnormality
Please suggest me I got this baby after so much effort, I don't want to loose it. Please help me
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   Please let me go through your query .
User :   Hello Dr.
User :   O.K.
Doctor :   Ok
User :   yes Dr.
Doctor :   Now that have gone through I can suggest you that you have to get aborted after these findings .
Doctor :   Please do not get upset emotionally
Doctor :   I can understand your feelings
Doctor :   But you can always go for another trial.
User :   Is there any chance that in another six months any thing can happen?
Doctor :   Could you please elaborate on your question ?
User :   what if I will give birth to this baby, what will be the complications with that baby?
User :   I wanted to ask that dr. said baby's lower part is not formed properly can it be formed in next six months?
Doctor :   Since it can be associated with genetic abnormalities, further ultrasounds and tests may be administered during pregnancy. It may also be diagnosed as megalocystis, and/or termed megabladder - both of which are the same condition.
Doctor :   I would always suggest that these conditions are caused not by slow development which can progress after sometime but due to some genetic anomalies, So i would recommend the same what the Gynecologist or the Radiologist has suggested.
User :   If I will be able to give birth can baby will live normal life? can we go for any surgery of baby after birth?
Doctor :   It is difficult as they have many other abnormalities associated with Cloacal and meningocoeles
Doctor :   They may have single opening for Urination and Anal opening and Also Kidney defects .
User :   what are the chances for next baby being normal?
Doctor :   Is this your first conception through ICSI ?
User :   So no surgery if live birth will happen?
User :   yes
User :   but I have high FSH & low AMH
Doctor :   Are you fine if I discuss this with you on phone ?
User :   yes
