Kathryn ’ s hints for a healthy hysterectomy

The post Kathryn’s hints for a healthy hysterectomy appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. In January I had a total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. I am 48 years old. Since the age of 14, I’ve had terrible periods; very very heavy, painful, long and with debilitating PMS symptoms. I was put on the pill at 14 and have tried every medical and holistic intervention since. These are my hints and tips for having a healthy hysterectomy. History 17 years ago, after a laparoscopy, I was diagnosed with moderate to severe endometriosis. I tried accupuncture, kineaseology, homeoepathy. I took buckets of evening primrose oil for beyond painful breasts, drank litres of aloe vera, and went on strict elimination diets but nothing lasted long. After refusing anti depressents for over 30 years, I started them for 2 weeks a month prior to my period 2 years ago and they helped my PMS symptoms but I didnt really like taking them and the physical aspect were getting worse. The heaviness, flooding and blood clots were frankly revolting and I also began to bleed around ovulation for 3 -4 days, enough to need tampons. I had some scans in the hope of getting my Drs to agree a hysterectomy but my fibroid was only 2cm and hadn’t grown in a year so they wanted me to try the Mirena coil. I reluctantly did, bleeding and spotting on and off for 4 – 5 months in addition to the horrors of my monthly bleeds. After 6 months, the coil fell out in the show...

Conclusion: The voucher programme enhanced uptake of the complete continuum of maternal care and the benefits extended to the most vulnerable women. However, a lack of continued transition through the continuum of maternal care was identified. This insight can assist in designing effective interventions to prevent intermittent or interrupted care-seeking. Programmes that improve access to quality healthcare in pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period can have wide-ranging benefits. A coherent continuum-based approach to understanding maternal care-seeking behaviour is thus expected to have a greater impact on materna...

Conclusion: Although left-sided gallbladder is a very rare disease, it is possible to diagnose it preoperatively and perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy safely by adjusting port position. The common important features of left-sided gallbladder include distribution of the left portal vein crossing over to the right side of the liver and increased size of the left portal vein. These variations may have important clinical implications in the management of hepatic resection including donor hepatectomy. PMID: 31824885 [PubMed]

Authors: Gunes ME, Dural AC, Akarsu C, Guzey D, Sahbaz NA, Tulubas EK, Bulut S, Donmez T Abstract Purpose: The use of nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) may affect intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) during anesthesia used during thyroid and parathyroid surgery. Methods: The use of sugammadex was evaluated in a prospective clinical study during thyroid surgery. Between July 2018 and January 2019, 129 patients were prospectively randomized to either the sugammadex group (group B) or the control group (group A). Group A patients underwent standardized IONM during thyroidectomy, while group B ...

Authors: Landi F, O'Higgins P Abstract Virtual imaging, image manipulation and morphometric methods are increasingly used in medicine and the natural sciences. Virtual imaging hardware and image manipulation software allows us to readily visualise, explore, alter, repair and study digital objects. This suite of equipment and tools combined with statistical tools for the study of form variation and covariation using Procrustes based analyses of landmark coordinates, geometric morphometrics, makes possible a wide range of studies of human variation pertinent to biomedicine. These tools for imaging, quantifying and an...

CONCLUSION: Rehabilitation with PENS improved kinematics in both tasks and decreased EMG activity. This suggests that rehabilitation with PENS may improve muscle function during functional tasks. PMID: 31825893 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The observed changes in CoM motion at POST2 may be associated with atypical running biomechanics that can translate to greater mediolateral impulses, potentially increasing the risk of injury. This study demonstrates the use of an accelerometer as an effective tool to detect atypical CoM motion for runners due to fatigue, recovery, and musculoskeletal pain in real-world environments.

Epithelioid trophoblastic tumor is a malignancy derived from the chorionic laeve-type intermediate trophoblast with sufficient rarity that the vast majority of literature on the topic exists in the form of case reports and small series. Classically, it is regarded as a well-circumscribed tumor with an expansile growth pattern that occurs in reproductive-aged women, usually after a normal pregnancy. However, we recently encountered a case of epithelioid trophoblastic tumor with aggressive spread throughout the abdomen and pelvis in a 68-yr-old female presenting 30 yr after her last delivery. Although to our knowledge...

Outpatient endometrial biopsy can give false-negative results, with a 0.9% reported posttest probability for endometrial carcinoma (EC) after a negative result. Our objective was to determine if there has been any improvement in the performance characteristics of endometrial biopsy over the last 15 yr. All hysterectomy specimens with a diagnosis of EC or atypical hyperplasia (AH), reported between May 2011 and May 2015, were identified and cross-referenced for any negative endometrial sampling results during the 5 yr before hysterectomy. Negative endometrial samples were defined as either benign findings or i...
