Question: I had kidney biopsy last tuesday. There was no blood in urine just normal clot like red pieces and I was discharged from hospital same day after 5 hrs observation. The pain was normal as it should be. Then on friday after taking bath my husband removed my bandage. I felt little pain and then suddenly in few seconds I fainted. I fainted for a min or so. My husband called ambulance. Every test was normal at hospital and Dr. said this happened because of bandage removal and they discharged me. After that I started feeling stiff inside at Biopsy site. Outside I don't have any bruise or stiffness whatsoever after Biopsy. I only feel stiffness and discomfort and little continuous pain. Please explain my situation. Should I see dr.

Brief Answer:
There is no cause for concern

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day
Dear XXXX

I assume that you had undergone Gun/punch biopsy. It is safe and unlikely to cause any significant bleeding in the absence of any coagulation/bleeding abnormalities.
The symptoms are likely to be due to anxiety and stress associated with biopsy.

If the following criteria are fulfilled there is no cause for concern
1. Absence of blood in Urine
2. No swelling at biopsy site
3. Normal Pulse rate and blood pressure

Ensure good intake of water and adequate rest.

Do keep me updated about progress
Wishing you great health.

the stiffness and mild pain which I feel could be hematoma?

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be Hematoma

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
Hematoma is usually associated with swelling and discolouration of overlying skin. Some pain and discomfort is quite common after biopsy.
Local application of hot water fomentation and analgesic like Ibuprofen will be helpful.

Brief Answer:
Ibuprofen is not advisable

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings

As your Creatinine is high and GFR is low Ibuprofen is not advisable. For pain control analgesic like Paracetamol is much safer. Also continue with hot water fomentation.

Take care

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
