What is Congenital diverticulum of the bladder?

My 3yr old daughter has been diagnosed with some type of mass pushing on her bladder. Doctors are not sure what it is. I was just wondering what congenital diverticulum of the bladder is.

They are pouches in the bladder wall that a person is born with (congenital) or later acquires. A congenital bladder diverticulum represents an area of weakness in the bladder wall through which some of the lining of the bladder is forced out. (A small balloon squeezed in a fist will create a diverticular-like effect between the fingers.) Bladder diverticula may be multiple and they often occur at the entrance of the upper urinary system into the bladder (ureterovesical junction). Acquired diverticula are usually related to bladder obstruction, most commonly as a result of benign prostatic hyperplasia  (+ info)

Does anyone know if its possible to get pregnant after having a urethral diverticulum removed?

I had a Urethral Diverticulum removed back in 2007. Everything went fine and I was able to walk away from the surgery without having to put a sling in or anything. At the time I was 25 years old and the doctor said that my youth would help me with my recovery, but He had mentioned something regarding pregnancy and at the time I was a bit to out of it ( medication wise) to absorb what was said. If anyone has any information on this please let me know. Thank you!

Yes you should be able to get pregnant without complications due to the surgery. However, this should not stop you from doing your research and educating yourself on the matter. If your concerns still persist you should consult with a doctor to reassure you and / or educate you further on the matter. I know this may not be the perfect answer that you where looking for but the bottom line is I do not see a valid reason for that surgery to hinder your ability to get pregnant. Plenty of women get far more directly related and invasive procedures done, and are still able to conceive just fine. Truth is even health women that have never had any issues or procedures done, sometimes even have a difficult time concieveing. This is why it is best to seek help.
I am a surgical tech, almost done with my BSN in nursing, and a future med student; Not to mention my years of experience in not only the med field but also as a female that has had serious fem issues.
I am guessing that your concerns are because you have not yet conceived or are considering trying.
This can be nerve wrecking but, the best advise will be to seek help. Once you have spoken to your doc you may want to consider going to see a midwife.
Midwives are particularly spectacular when it comes to conceiving,under a variety of situations. It is a common misconception that they are simply used for deliveries but in fact, they are not simply used for delivering babies, they are used for the whole process. Pre conception- post gravida. They are a great resource to use once you have decided to try and conceive. Many insurances cover them as well.
I hope that I have helped you at least a little and I wish you the best of luck.  (+ info)

What causes stomach ulcers and how do you get rid of them naturally?

I think I have an ulcer in my stomach, I looked up the symptoms and they seem to match mine, I really do not like having to have to take anything perscibed by a doctor who isn't holistic. At the moment I don't have the money to spend on a doctor of any type. Is there anything I can do here at home that will help heal it? Also, what can cause stomach ulcers?

Stomach ulcers can be serious. I highly suggest getting checked out by a doctor. I know money is a big issue for many people right now, but there are many things that can cause symptoms of an ulcer, and untreated ulcers can lead to more serious problems. If your symptoms persist, see someone.

There are many factors that can contribute to ulcers: Smoking, alcohol consumption, irregular diet, and use of NSAIDs (asprin, ibuprofen). There's thought that H.pylori (a bacteria) plays a role in ulcer development. A stomach ulcer is essentially acid creating sores in your stomach lining.

Things that you can do at home are to stop smoking if you do, and to avoid alcohol. Eating yogurt can also help. However, you really do need to get this checked out, and treated.

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for H.pyloric stomach ulcers, and acid in the stomach should be reduced by another medication (usually a proton pump inhibitor or H2 blocker),

I'm not very familiar with non-pharmacological options to treat ulcers.

I don't know what symptoms you're having, your pain level, etc. You are the judge of when to get checked out, but if anything gets worse, be sure to go in!  (+ info)

What is the proper way to do stomach crunches?

I went to a gym a few years ago and I cannot remember if the woman told me to suck in my stomach when I do them or if she told me not to....She said that you will get muscles in your stomach that bulge out and your stomach will not get flat if they are done improperly...Can someone please inform me of the proper way to do them for a flatter stomach? Do you suck your stomach in or no? Thank you!

you can suck in our tummy but make sure that you are breathing while you do the crunches. put you r hands behing your head and dont bend your arms try and make your elbows level with the ground if that makes any sense, and then look up and the ceiling and lift your torso up towards the ceiling. make sure that your shoulder bones come off the ground. think of lifting up not folding in half. hope that helps  (+ info)

How can i get rid of my stomach fat really fast?

I am so overweight but my stomach is the biggest part. My pants won't buttom because of my stomach and when i get a pair to fit over my stomach, then they won't stay on my behind? I need to know how to get rid of all this stomach fat really fast cuz it's gettin me really depressed.

You can't choose what part of your body you loose weight from though, you can tone that part. I recommend eating a little less and working out more, you sure you aren't getting bloated? To loose one pound you need to burn 3500 calories. Try eating lots of fruits and veggies and less meat, carbs. and junk food in general. Start running or working out and getting a little more exercise in, even if it is parking at the back of the parking lot at stores. Lastly, get a larger pair of pants. You need to feel good about yourself to loose weight and be accepting of your body, don't let those pants that shrunk in the wash get your down! You can do it!  (+ info)
