Question: Hi, I am a 26 year female. Past few months, I have a mild pain in the upper right side abdominal region. I have already consulted a gynaecologist and underwent ultrasound and the results for gall stones and kidney stones are negative. They recommended me to check with urologist if pain continues, but in the middle I didn't have any pain. So I never consulted them. But recently past 1 week, I am feeling a little pain again. Also, one another symptom I noticed is pale to dark yellowish urine almost 5-6 times a day. I am little afraid if its anyway related to Jaundice. Looking forward for your advice and also guidance on whom should I consult on this further?

Brief Answer: consult a medical gastroenterologist Detailed Answer: Hello, I have read your query with diligence. In cases of mild fatty liver, there can be vague abdominal pain on the upper right side. This may not be detected on scan routinely. You seem to be noticing dark yellowish urine almost 5-6 times a day. It is possible that it can be a mild medical jaundice as well. In my view, you require liver function test or LFT to be done, along with repeat ultrasound of the liver region. It would be best to consult a medical gastroenterologist for the same. More than 25% of times, a kidney stone is not visible on scan. A plain x-ray of the KUB region would be the ideal investigation in such a case. Discuss about these options with your doctor. Hope this helps you. Regards,

i am looking for a surgeon that can fix my sons breathing. he has had 2 nose surgery s before and still can t breathe at all he says. he is 19 years old he has a deviated perforated septum plus allergies really bad witch caused a lot of swelling and blockage. he had the surgery to correct the deviated perforated septum a few weeks before his insurance ended. this was in September 2013. he went a few months later to check up on it. the doctor said it appeared that the deviation was closed and healed. ( by the way he had the back of his right ear transplanted in his perforated septum.) but the problem is that it has never stopped bleeding ever. since all of that time. ( do you think it is because it is a transplant that it doesn t stop bleeding? ) he does not blow his nose he uses a q-tip to get the boogers out. he has used a lot of creams and oils to help the inside of his nose heal but nothing works. also the doctor said while he was in surgery he realized he could not break one of the bones behind his nose so that he could breathe on one side. i asked why not? he said because my sons skull was not shaped right from the inside. so it was odd shaped. and he feared if he did break it that since it was so deep. he might make his skull collapse. i am not sure this is even true because i never saw a picture or x-ray. but my question here is he has medicade full coverage. who can preform a difficult surgery to help him. his nose is swollen again because of allergies and he can t breathe at all. he take the allergy shots to help cure the allergies since he was 9 years old and allergy prescriptions, eye drops excreta. had 2 surgery s already and still can t breathe. he just wants to breathe. is there a highly highly highly qualified doctor the specializes in this field? that will except medicade? we have utah medicade.
