Dilation and Curettage D C Surgery PreOp Patient Engagement and Education
Youtu.beJiaqOtVna1g Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a Dilation and Curettage, or D and C. But what does that actually mean The uterus is part of a woman's reproductive system. It's the organ that contains the growing fetus. The cervix forms the neck of the uterus, and the vagina is the canal through which conception and birth take place. The endometrium is a soft lining that protects the fetus during pregnancy. Reasons for having a D and C vary. Most D and C's are performed because the patient has complained of unusually heavy menstrual bleeding.
Other common problems include, uterine infection, bleeding after sexual intercourse, incomplete miscarriage or the presence of polyps small pieces of extra tissue growing on the inside of the uterine wall. Then the surgeon will use a gloved hand to conduct a vaginal examination and will check the size and location of the uterus by pressing on your lower abdomen. A metal or plastic vaginal speculum is used to gently expand the vagina and allow access to the cervix. Once the cervix is visible, a forcep is used to grasp the front lip of the cervix causing.
The uterus to open a little. Using a blunttipped probe, the surgeon carefully measures the length of the uterus and takes a small sample of tissue from the cervical canal. Next, the surgeon will dilate, or open the cervix, using a series of progressively larger metal rods called dilators. When the cervix has expanded sufficiently, the doctor will use a spoonshaped instrument called a curette to gently scrape out the lining of the uterus. In some cases, surge When the entire lining of the uterus has been removed, the instruments are withdrawn.
How to cure uterine fibroids without surgery
Hello, I'm doctor Gillian Johnson As a former fibroids sufferer what I want to tell you is You don't have to suffer. Fibroids and fibroids symptoms can be cured WITHOUT surgery or a hysterectomy. I had two uterine fibroids, and you may know how painful is. After several unsuccessful medications, my gynecologist wanted me to undergo surgery. But another doctor suggested me to follow a new holisticdrugfree method, accessible on the web. In just 5 weeks fibroids shrunk drastically. No more pain, no more irregular periods, no more bladder pressure. The following ultrasounds shown that both of these fibroid were completely gone.
General Biopsy Surgery PreOp Patient Engagement and Education
Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a biopsy procedure or lumpectomy. But what does that actually mean Biopsy is a general term which simply means the removal of tissue for microscopic examination. Your doctor intends to remove tissue from your body, not because you're necessarily ill, but because biopsy is a very accurate method for analyzing unusual growths or other suspicious tissue. Because it provides such accurate diagnostic information, biopsy is an important diagnostic tool in the fight against cancer. In your case, you have a suspicious lump or other tissue which needs to be examined. It.
May have been felt by you or your doctor.. or spotted using other diagnostic tools such as xray. Let's take a moment to look at the reasons why lumps or growths form. The body is made of many different kinds of tissues and those tissues are all subject to change during the course of a normal lifetime. Usually, a thickening or lump turns out to be benign, or harmless, and often requires no treatment. In some cases, lumps are malignant tumors, caused by the growth of cancerous cells. These growths need to be treated as rapidly as possible.
In order to learn more about the nature of the suspicious tissue, your doctor would like to surgically remove it. Most likely, you're feeling some anxiety about this procedure, which is perfectly understandable. You should realize that it's natural to feel apprehensive about any kind of biopsy. But ignoring a suspicious growth won't make it go away. If you're feeling anxious, try to remember that the purpose of a biopsy is simply to find out what is going on in your body so that if you do have a problem, it can be diagnosed.
And treated as quickly as possible. If you should decide not to allow your doctor to perform the biopsy, you'll be leaving yourself at risk for medical problems. If the suspicious tissue in your breast is benign, most likely you'll suffer few if any complications. However, if it is cancerous, and it is allowed to grow unchecked you might be putting your own life at risk. The bottom line trust that your doctor is recommending this procedure for your benefit and above all don't be afraid to ask questions raised by this tutorial and to talk openly about.
Your concerns. After allowing a few minutes for the anesthetic to take effect, the surgeon will make a small incision. Once the incision has been made, your doctor will begin looking for the lump. You will feel some pressure or even slight tugging or pulling but you should not feel any sharp pain. Once the lump is removed, the doctor will close the skin over the incision as neatly and as cosmetically as they are able. Finally, a sterile dressing is applied. Your tissue specimen will be sent immediately to a lab for microscopic analysis. Your doctor.
ICD10 Coding Annual Physical with Chronic Conditions
Laureen Q Annual Physical ICD10 question, if a patient is in for an annual physical and has chronic conditions like diabetes mellitus or hypertension, would you use Z00.01 Alicia Chandra knows this one. Chandra A Z00.01 is annual preventive or adult preventive examination with abnormal findings. As we talked about earlier, abnormal findings means we found something during that exam that we didn't already know that the patient had. Chronic conditions would be things we already knew the patient had. The thing that I go back to with that and then determining whether we knew it ahead.
Of time, look at some of your documentation guidelines. If you really want to think about it, I'm going to cite inpatient for a minute, but if you look at your Present on Admission Guidelines, they tell you any chronic condition that patient had before they were admitted are considered present on admission. It's kind of the same thought, they come in and do a preventive exam, we knew they had hypertension, we knew they had diabetes, we knew they had whatever. Even if we write them a script to refill those meds, it's not that we found something abnormal.
During this exam. It's simply that we gave them a script for their chronic conditions. Laureen Very good. Alicia If it is a new condition, they'll document that they'll be doing counseling on they're sending them to the diabetes nurse and getting counseling on nutrition that this is a new finding but Chandra And then in that case, then they also have to make sure that anytime they use the code that says they did a preventive with an abnormal finding they need an additional code to identify what that abnormal finding is. That's typically where they're going.
What Does That Really Mean Episode 2 Cytology vs. Biopsy
Hi, I'm Missy Edmunds, a patient advocate here at the Mesothelioma Center. Welcome to this week's What Does That Really Mean This week I'll be talking about the difference between a cytology and a biopsy. A cytology is where the doctor goes in and removes some fluid from the lungs. The fluid's then looked at under a microscope to look for any cancerous cells. In a biopsy an actual tissue sample of the lungs is taken. It's then looked at under a microscope to determine if the tissue has any cancerous cells.
Surgery update DC, Biopsy, Mirena
Hi my lovies how are you It's been a month. I'm doing good thanks for asking. I'm talking in a microphone so hopefully you can hear me better. Anywho I went to the Drs Monday the 28th and I brought my husband and my Dr is 2 years younger than us, but that means we are from the same generation, so him and my husband got along great and by the end of my appointment they where making fun of me. Anywho I said Doctor Doctor why do I have to have a biopsy If my papsmear came back.
Normal and my ultrasound came backing nothing. He explained to me yes Darlin your papsmear came back normal but bleeding for 7 month ain't normal okay it's not normal. So because I'm not normal and normal human being would get the biopsy in the office, but they have to put me to sleep, that's why I don't want it, I don't want to be put to sleep, but I had 1 2 3 4 5 count em 5 dc's so they put me on all kinds of different stuff nothing works, so I am going to the Mirena IUD even thought I don't to but I might as.
Well give it a try and so I can shut everybody up and say look this is what I did. He explained to me that if it doesn't work or if It's not feeling right or what ever he will take it out, he has no problems, he said I ain't no woman, Ican't tell you what to do. I don't have no nothing so I'll take it out. So that's fine, he also explained to me that um the thing they use to put the Mirena IUD is longer and wider and bigger.
Than when they do the biopsy, so it's better that I'm asleep. They can't do the biopsy and they can't do that and why they are in their they are gonna scrape scrape scrape scrape me up scrape me clean. so that's where I am at, they said they will call me in 4 days they have not called me in 4 days. I m not in a rush I m assuming my surgery will be next month, by the way lovies I m starting to like owls, I don't know let me take a drink, its ice water.
So if you got PCOS hang in there you hang in there okay lets pray for each other and encourage each other I know that it's hard its taking me years to find a Dr that I like but even than no one ever refers me to Endo, so that will be my next move I guess Just hang in there, the Lord doesn't give us nothing we can't handle, so we can handle crazy cuz it makes us crazy. right and you know lets pray for our husbands cuz.
Endometriosis, Uterine Fibroids, and Estrogen Dominance
Now, when we have a stage called estrogen dominance estrogen proliferates tissue when it's dominant. Estrogen within itself is very good. I helps us with our brain tissue, our memory. It helps us to think clearly, prevents foggy brain and all this other stuff. Estrogen in itself is very goodit's not bad. But when you have an estrogen dominance situation where the estrogen is very dominant over the progesterone, you're going to have all these symptoms and you're going to have a proliferation of tissue. For instance, if a woman comes in with cysts on her ovaries or cysts in her breasts.
Or she has fibroids on the inner uterine lining, or she has endometriosis these are all tissues that are being proliferated. They are increasing because she's got too much estrogen in her. Thus, we have a lot of increase in the amounts of hysterectomies because women are getting large fibroids and they're bleeding heavy, heavy, heavy, so they have anemia. I went through this myself, personally, in my forties. I had a lot of estrogen dominance but back then we didn't know exactly what to do. And so, I ended up having a hysterectomy because every time.
Neenah Pregnancy Kaldas Center
My mama was a righteous woman. She was of the opinion that you do well by people and good for people at every turn can. The way should start a conversation is Rami what good have you done for people today And so I think that had a deep influence on me. My job is my life. When I'm here in town I keep my pager on 247 and I try to deliver all of my patients. That's the kind of commitment that I would want from my doctor and that's the kind of commitment.
That I want to give to my patients. I think there's nothing really truly more empowering then watching a woman take control over her birth experience or her health care in general. I think that's what really shows what women are made of. I wanna be the person that when they remember their birth that they think you know what, there was this really great person that helped me get to where I wanted to be and that she was there and never had to worry that I was in it alone. We become friends.
You know! So I really get excited when we would bring back their babies or when they just peek their head into visit, because it is, its a friendship and a relationship that we established To be able to go through life truly with the job that you love is one of the greatest accomplishments you can have. We care so much that we will not within human ability let someone down on our promise to help them and so we are there for you. 9208862299 Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery Pregnancy, S.C. kaldascenter.
