Can a brain hemorrhage or the beginning of one be detected though a test by the ophthalmologist?
Has anyone every had their baby diagnosed with an isolated bilateral choroid plexus cyst?
My baby (I'm currently still pregnant with; 20 weeks gestation) was recently diagnosed with an isolated bilateral choroid plexus cyst with no structural abnormalities. I was wondering if anyone has gone through the same thing and if their child was eventually diagnosed with Edwards Syndrome or if their child was born healthy.
P.S. I have two other children, both boys, that were never diagnosed with this. I'm also pregnant with a boy.
First: the majority of cysts detected while pregnant resolve themselves before birth or shortly there after with no long term effects.
Second: The appearance of these cysts has only co-related it's appearance with a T-18 syndrome in one out of every 3 cases, so you're chances are very slim because in almost every case that had cysts and a t-18 disorder there were other issues that were apparent in the ultrasound.
So basically if that's all they saw were cysts and no other developmental issues I would relax. You can ask for an amnio test if you want but only if you would consider terminating the pregnancy, if not they'll do another ultrasound when you are farther along to check on the cysts and you'll have a baby boy to love no matter what challenges he presents.

How long after concussions do brain hemorrhage occur?
I had concussion about 5 days ago, My head has stopped hurting and I feel fine, the spot on my head is still a bit soft but almost back to normal, I did not go to the hospital. I just want to be safe, none of the hemorrhage symptoms, do you think I'll be fine?
At any point. That's just it there is no way of knowing. A clot could be formed and something like a hit to the head could jog it lose. Head aches are warning signs. Most likly though you'll be fine just you NEED TO GO TO THE DOCTOR concussions can KILL YOU! (+ info
I had a postpartum hemorrhage with my first child, what are the chances of it happening again?
I had a baby 4 months ago, and had a postpartum hemorrhage. It was really severe, and had to have 2 blood transfusions and 2 surgerys, I almost lost my life because of it. I really want to have another baby some day, what are my chances of this happening again?
If they used pitocin to augment your labor it could have caused the hemorrhage.
If it happened during a natural labor (no drugs whatsoever) then I would think you would be at risk.
Most hospital births cause more problems than they solve. Find out the cause of the problem and try to prevent it. Inform yourself and settle for nothing short of the best care for you next time. (+ info

Choroid plexus cyst on baby seen on second trimester ultrasound?
During my second trimester ultrasound the doctor said that my baby has a small cyst called choroid plexus cyst. He said that in most cases they resolve on their own before birth, but in rare cases it could be an indicator of something really bad: trisomy 18, which is incompatible with life. I was told to go back in 5 weeks for another ultrasound. I would like to know of other cases where they found this type of cyst and what was the baby's outcome. I am very sad and I would like to hear other stories.
I was once a genetic counselor and talked to people about this fairly frequently. As I am sure they told you 99 times out of 100 this turns out to be fine. these cysts are pretty common. If they did an amniocentesis you would know for sure more quickly, but obviously that choice is up to you. I did this about 10 years ago. I remember lots of happy outcomes. If they do see something else concerning on the ultrasound that can make the riskf or problems go up. I guess that might be why they are having you come back. we didnt do that unless we didn't see something well enough the first time.
Good luck and I can think of plenty of families I spoke to who now are probably worrying about which soccer team to join or finishing math work and have forgotten this ever happened. (+ info
Subconjunctival hemorrhage - How fast should your eye get red?
Three days ago I woke up with a small portion of the white of my eye bloodshot. I assume this is Subconjunctival hemorrhage, but I have never had it before this incident. My question is, how fast does your eye get red? Should it happen immediately? My redness has stayed the same during the day, but each day since when I wake up there is more of it, so it appears to be happening overnight (three days running now).
Is it bloodshot, meaning lots of big looking red vessels, or is there a patch of red, like a pool of blood? If it's a patch, it's a subconjunctival hemorrhage and it can spread over the eye and then eventually thin out and reabsorb. Generally it will run it's course within 7 to 10 days. If it's just bloodshot, it's something different. In either case, you should probably see your doctor for clarification and any necessary treatment. (+ info
Im 11 weeks pregnant, plan on having abortion but I have a hemorrhage What are the risks of having the abortio?
Im scared to have the abortion because i have a hemorrhage on the lining of my uterus. What are the risks involved with having the abortion?
don't let these people bother you by calling you names. they do not know your situation and they have not walked in your shoes. they show their ignorance by the things that they say. you do not owe ANYONE an explanation and certainly no anonymous coward on the internet. I can promise you that each of them have skeletons in their own closets that others would gladly crucify them for. U don't need to worry about safety. It is completely safe-safer than childbirth. they DO NOT suck the fetus out in pieces either-not at that early stage. I guess ignorance is bliss for some of these people. At the stage you are in it is just like having a heavy period. That is all. Talk to your DOCTOR if you are concerned. DO NOT rely on scare tactics from people who have no information to start with.

Can someone explain a brain hemorrhage to me please?
when i was 8 in 2002 my mum had a brain hemorrhage and i didn't really understand it. and i still don't, can someone explain please?
Intracerebral hemorrhage is focal bleeding from a blood vessel in the brain parenchyma. The cause is usually hypertension. Blood from an intracerebral hemorrhage accumulates as a mass that can dissect through and compress adjacent brain tissues, causing neuronal dysfunction. Large hematomas increase intracranial pressure. Cerebellar hematomas that are > 3 cm in diameter may cause midline shift or herniation. Herniation, midbrain or pontine hemorrhage, intraventricular hemorrhage, acute hydrocephalus, or dissection into the brain stem can impair consciousness and cause coma and death.
If you have more question, u can post them in:

My dad has a vitreous hemorrhage. What to do so he can regain his vision?
A vitreous hemorrhage is when a blood vessel ruptures in the retina. His vision has depleted tremendously and he can't judge where things are on top of that. If anyone can help, it would be very appreciated.
Is he also diabetic? Is it in one eye?
I am not an expert by any means but from I have come across regarding retinal conditions i have learned that the eye can clear up at least some of the blood floating in the vitreous but that takes at least a month. Again, I might be totally wrong.
What I am sure of is that if the vitreous does not clear up on its own or that vision is still very poor out of that eye after a few months, then a vitrectomy is an option.
Vitrectomies can lead to more eye problems but will usually restore vision. (+ info
