Can an untreated Pseudobursa cause any type of long term damage or consequence? Could it go unseen on a CT scan/ultrasound?

Edema and banding on gastric wall 15 months after tummy tuck
- The gastric wall is difficult to assess on a CT scan.
- But edema and gastric banding are not characteristic of a pseudobursa.
- An ultrasound should show a pseudobursa because fluid is present.
- If you are concerned, ask your surgeon to do an ultrasound and if that shows nothing, an MRI.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
