Can any online doctor tell me about the sonogram report of my gallbladder ?

I recently had a gall bladder sonogram - it showed a non-shadowing 0.4 x 0.6 x 0.7 cm echyogenic focus in the mid pole that could reflect an atypical stone, small hemorrhagic cyst, vascular calcification or tiny angimyolipoma.

Hello debbie;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The ultrasound report showing non-shadowing area can be anything out of these a stone;cyst;calcification.As the size is small i guess presently and if you don't have any symptoms which are bothering you please leave it as it is and repeat ultrasound after one and half or two months if you don't have any symptoms or pain in that region.If the shadow increases or becomes more clear and definite then the diagnosis can be made and then you can get treated.Also next time while posing question please write in detail so that we can help you better.
Thanks

I have been diagnosed with gallstones and need to have my gallbladder removed. Until this happens I need to go back to work, which involves working with heavy patients as my field is Physiotherapy. Would I be able to carry on or do I need to have light duties?

Many thanks

Hi. I have tested positive for AMA and been told i may have primary billiary cirrhosis . All other tests are normal. I have gall stones, chronic anemia and low weight 6.10. I have to wait 5 mths to see a liver specialist and the uncertainty is causing me so much stress as pbc is a serious condition and yet i dont know if i really have it. The pbc society mentions some consultants diagnose on the positive ama alone, what is your view ? Thanks Hannah

Hi
I am going thru IVF- had 2 embryos implanted on 5/25. The very next day had severe--severe-- pain in left shoulder--it lasted 2 days and went away. Just had first hcg test and level is low 19.7. I have been reading today on the web that shoulder pain could indicate an ectopic pregnancy. Could the shoulder pain be a symptom even though it was 2 weeks ago? I am also nauseous but otherwise feel fine. No bleeding or cramping at all. Should I be worried? Thank you.

I am suffering from bloating for past 3-4 months. It usually occurs after a couple of hours from having meals or at times even due to empty stomach. There is aching between ribs and navel portion. My physician suggested a course of Fasygen (2 times a day * 3-5 days) and a daily dose of Pan-D for couple of months. My family physician s diagnosis included possibilities of GERD/ giardiasis , mental/emotional stress, amoebiasis and gall stones. Accordingly I had a Ultra Sound of my abdomen done, but its results were normal. I am also taking Gasex to avoid bloating for more than a month. After the course of Fasygen, I get a relief for a few days (3-4 days). But the symptoms reappear. And it is usually accompanied by involuntary gaseous discharge.
