Brief Answer: it is normal and will resolve soon Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Welcome to Healthcare Magic. The abdomen may appear distended in immediate period of posts surgical period. Theis is expected and is due to hypotonia in the abdominal muscles. If there is any pain then you must be examined by the operating surgeon. The abdomen will take preoperative levels once you resume full activities. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.

My sister just told me that she has a mass measuring 22mm on her uterus. She is an otherwise healthy female 32.5yrs old. About 5 5 and weighs about 155-160lbs. There is a family history on the Maternal side of fibroids and Uterine/ovarian cancer. Is there a correlation between the size and whether or not it is cancerous? Also there has been active bleeding and her doctor is calling for surgery to remove the mass. Obviously I am concerned especially since we do not live close.

Hi Samuel I would like to have a child. This is my recent ultrasound result. What are my chances? Clinical Details: Follow-up right ovarian cyst. Technique: Transabdominal and transvaginal scans performed. LMP two weeks ago. Findings: The uterus measured 76 x 36 x 44mm, anteverted, homogeneous myometrium apart from a 6mm posterior intramural fibroid. Normal endometrial thickness 3mm, regular. The right ovary had a volume of 4cc with a unilocular cyst measuring 21mm diameter. If this is the same cyst as previously demonstrated, it is certainly smaller. The left ovary was enlarged at 18cc with a 25 x 26 x 25mm cyst with some internal septation but no increased vascularity. This is probably still just a follicular cyst. Further ultrasound follow-up could be done to confirm complete resolution of the cyst on the right and this new cyst on the left. Thank you so much Suze
