What a pain! – Lisa ’ s story

The post What a pain! – Lisa’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. I knew I had endometriosis as it had a laparoscopy that identified this in my mid thirties as part of infertility investigations. I tried ICSI once after that and paid privately but we were unsuccessful in having a baby. We carried on ‘leaving it up to nature’ for many years after that but nothing happened. At the age of forty three we decided that we wouldn’t actively pursue my getting pregnant any more and put the idea to bed – my husband has a 17 yr old daughter from a previous marriage and she lives with us. Lovely girl, good relationship but not my own child. I had an IUD fitted – horrible, painful procedure and I felt awful. Periods were very heavy and becoming more debilitating. At around this time I started to get a nagging pain in my right side. After being referred and MRI scans, etc., the IUD was removed and the scans showed my left ovary stuck to my bladder, my right to my bowel. No wonder I was in pain. Through consultation, I agreed to a laparoscopy to try to free everything up and detach my ovaries from other organs. This went ahead in February 2016. Waking up from surgery, I found I had a deep stitch on my left side (seriously restricted movement and very painful) as there had been some bleeding they couldn’t stop. I was then also told that when they’d ‘gone in’, they felt there was so much endometriosis that I...

CONCLUSION: The experience of specific SHCs in the first 6 months after an SCI is related to greater long-term disability. In order to reduce the disability burden of people with SCI, efforts should be directed toward early prevention of these SHCs. PMID: 30882288 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Both the tablet-based tool and the custom PMDD performed better than manual assessment. The PMDD may be useful when the deficit is mild or assessment of dynamic proprioception is desired. As the tablet-based measure does not have the ceiling effect that is associated with the PMDD, it may be useful with any level of proprioceptive impairment, and may be preferable if testing or clinician training time needs to be minimized, or pain or spasticity is present.Video Abstract available for more insights from the authors (see the Video, Supplementary Digital Content 1, available at: http://links.lww.com/JNPT/A256). ...

FDA busted two manufacturers of silicone gel-filled breast implants this week for failure to comply with post-approval study requirements. The agency sent warning letters to Irvine, CA-based Mentor Worldwide, a unit of Johnson &Johnson, and to Santa Barbara, CA-based Sientra for deficiencies in each company's post-approval study for silicone breast implant approvals. Breast implants have been a source of contention between patient advocacy groups, industry, and FDA for decades. Implants were banned from the U.S. market from 1992 to 2006, and the devices have been the cause of an over...
