Hello. I'm sorry your mother is having problems. Your email address doesn't transmit to our platform here, so I'll have to answer your question in the forum.
Gallbladder adenomyomatosis is a fairly common condition of unknown cause that often gets discovered when people undergo abdominal ultrasound to identify the source of abdominal pain. Adenomyomatosis is characterized by thickening and irregularity in the wall of the gallbladder. This condition is not a precursor for cancer, and it usually doesn't cause any problems.
"Diffuse renal parenchymal disease" refers to an abnormal appearance throughout the tissues in your mother's kidneys. (The parenchyma of any organ is the functional tissue within the organ, as opposed to connective tissue or other nonfunctional elements.) Normal kidneys have a characteristic appearance on ultrasound; when a patient's kidneys don't have this typical appearance (they often have a grainy or "snowstorm" appearance instead), the radiologist reading the study will usually note it as "possible diffuse renal parenchymal disease." This finding must be correlated with clinical signs of kidney disease, such as an elevated creatinine level or abnormal amounts of protein in the urine.
Your mother's physician, who is familiar with her medical history and current complaints, is much better qualified to address these issues. I suggest you call him/her.
I hope things go well for your mom!
