Re: daily enema HELP

I’m doing my u.s conversions here and
10g is about 1 1/2teaspoons and
30 milliliters is 2Tablespoons
Is this suppose to be like a paste?
And I’m wondering about the midwadi since we don’t have that drink here. Is it just a carbonated drink or what am I looking for as a replacement?

Re: Need some help with CT results (What is ill defined soft tissue attenuation?)

tater - I have a question. Did the doctor who ordered your wife's CT scan specify on the CT-scan requisition that the patient has a ureteric stent? I read somewhere that patients with stents should always inform the radiologist that they have a stent. This is so that the radiologist can take this i...

Re: Knicked ureter

When my wife had her major surgery that removed her tumors, colon, nodes, etc the first thing they did was place a stent in the ureter. The RC surgeon said that they can get nicked in these types of surgeries especially if the tissue has been radiated. The stent was placed to give the ureter some st...

Re: Need some help with CT results (What is ill defined soft tissue attenuation)?

Quick update and sorry I’m using my phone so spelling maybe bad. Three months ago my wife’s CEA rose from 1.3 to 1.8. The CT scan showed a restriction of the right uereter most likely scarring from radiation. She also has a stint placed there from her resection surgery where they removed her eight ...

Re: Need some help with CT results

... Three months ago my wife’s CEA rose from 1.3 to 1.8... Fast forward to today CEA is up to 2.5. Onc says don’t worry kidney issues can elevate it... You asked about help on CT interpretation, but this reply is about interpreting rises in CEA instead, since you mentioned a sequence of 1.3 to 1.8 ...

Re: CEA and Kidney function

Elevated CEA readings are found in chronic kidney disease, which is benign. So the rise in your wife's CEA could definitely be related to her kidney issues and not to cancer. And you're right, her CEA is still in the normal range, so I wouldn't worry quite yet. The tricky thing about CEA is that it...

CEA and Kidney function

Yeah. Just to bring you up to speed quickly. My wife started hyperbolic treatments about 90 days ago to help heal a fistula and issues from radiation. At that time her right side started to hurt they did her labs and CT and her CEA went from 1.3 to 1.8 and showed scaring around the ureter on the rig...
