Operative Report Translation

Hi Everyone,
Received operative & pathology reports from my TAH/BSO performed on 10/28/03. I do not have a medical background but would like to comprehend the surgical procedures performed and the surgeon or pathologist findings.

Is there a web site that would allow me to type in a phrase or terminology [as an example "an enterocele bulge was noted"] and it would restate in basic layperson's language?


Thank you-

Kbear

Karen-
I didn't find any sites that allowed you to translate entire phrases, but I did do searches on the individual words that I did not understand. Also, your doctor should be willing to translate any of the report that you don't understand.
