Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Grade 2 laceration does not suggest splenic rupture.

Splenic fluid can be seen with laceration.

Did you have a CT scan recently?

An er doc was able to get imagining done. Situation honestly is profoundly complex... Not sure where to start and am just searching for one answer at a time. What did er doc mean when he wrote viscous rupture or even a diaphragm rupture?

Are you still there?

viscous rupture means organ rupture.

Diaphragm separates the chest from abdominal cavity.
