38 weeks pregnant and have miwife appointment this afternoon, in the UK do they do interna examinations?

im 38 weeks pregnant and have got my midwife appointment this afternoon. do they do an internl examination to see if im dialating at all, as i eep reading that people are getting checkd at 37weeks and there 2cm dialated etc, but unsure if they do that here?

The midwife may offer to perform an internal examination when you have an appointment AFTER your due date. At this point, they may offer to do a 'membrane sweep' where they will place a finger in the cervix (if possible) and wiggle it around to stimulate the hormones in that area and start labour. Studies show that this is not beneficial if done before your due date so at 38 weeks this would be an unnecessary intervention. Good luck!  (+ info)

sure. MRI's can take pictures at any angle and it sees muscle really well. It's not a common practice to MRI a face, but its possible.  (+ info)

i had liposuction on my tummy before i was married and then had 2 children via c-section. All this has created scarring internally. the doctor who performed the c-section commented to my husband in the delivery room that he hopes this was our last child because it was messy inside. I want to know if i or my baby will be in danger if I get pregnant again? C-section again most likely.

Difuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis?

What is diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH)?

DISH is characterized by excessive bone growth along the sides of the vertebrae of the spine
It also involves inflammation and bone growth where tendons and ligaments attach to bone, such as at the elbow, knee and the heel of the foot.
Bone spurs are common among people with DISH

DISH (sometimes called Forestier’s disease) is considered a form of degenerative arthritis and is characterized by excessive bone growth along the sides of the vertebrae of the spine. It is also associated with inflammation and calcification (bone growth) at other areas of the body where tendons and ligaments attach to bone, such as at the elbow, knee and the heel of the foot. These can lead to bone spurs. Heel spurs, for example, are common among people with DISH.

How common is DISH?

DISH is very common, affecting between six and 12 percent of North Americans.
It rarely occurs among people younger than 50.
It affects more men than women.

DISH is thought to be the second most common form of arthritis after osteoarthritis. It affects between six and 12 percent of North Americans, almost always occurring among people older than 50. Unlike most types of arthritis, DISH occurs more often among men (65%) than women (35 %), and affects 28 percent of men over the age of 80.  (+ info)

Porotic hyperostosis disease ?

Can anyone take a research about this disease on skeletal system ... Wonder if it's genetic , and how is it hinherited ... What are the symptoms and progression of the disease ? This is really hard to find so if you can find it then I'll give you the best answer right away !


This is a rare disease is generally a consequence of sickle cell anemia (rare) or thalassemia or other anemia (especially iron deficient ones). No one really knows if it's genetic or as a consequence of nutritional deficiency as proposed by some physical anthropologists. The basics is that the skull (can happen in other bones) becomes spongy in the marrow. This causes the outside of the bone to become thin and frail. The consequence of progression is not really known or understood, but I imagine that the consequences are the same as for people with osteoporosis such as easy fractures...like I said this is a very rare and mostly a disease studied by anthropologists not physicians...sorry I couldn't be more help.

every time i take a deep breath i fell like my rib cage puchures one of my interna lorgans, does anyone know?

You may have a vertebrae out of alignment. I know when I get a thoracic vertebra out of place, it knocks the rib out of alignment and when I take a deep breath it feels like someone stabbed me. I go to the chiropractor asap and he makes it right for me. The effect is immediate.  (+ info)
