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...
With great interest, we read the article “Transcatheter Arterial Embolization for Gastrointestinal Bleeding Associated with Gastric Carcinoma: Prognostic Factors Predicting Successful Hemostasis and Survival” by Sangik Park et al (1). In their study, Park et al constructed a multivariate Cox model to identify predictors of successful transcatheter arterial embolization and 30-day survival after transcatheter arterial embolization.
First of all, we express our deep appreciation for your taking the time to read our article and commenting on it.
Adequately treating pain and nausea following uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a continuing challenge. Superior hypogastric nerve block (SHNB) is a successful adjunct technique for decreasing pain after embolization. This letter discusses safety measures for administration of SHNB during UAE using radial artery access, including avoiding inadvertent intravascular injection, choosing the optimal anesthetic, and treating local anesthetic systemic toxicity.
A 27-year-old competitive runner presented with deep right thigh pain for 1 year. A T2-weighted hyperintense 3-cm lesion was found in the right vastus lateralis muscle on magnetic resonance imaging, indicative of a ganglion cyst (Fig 1). Corresponding ultrasound showed a well-defined, hypoechoic lesion confirming the diagnosis of ganglion cyst. This location is rare for g anglion cyst, and such lesions have been treated only by surgical excision. Ultrasound-guided aspiration and sclerosis with sodium tetradecyl sulfate was performed.
CONCLUSION: Client-centred occupational performance goals may be facilitated through placing goal-setting in the context of life changes and lifelong development of goals, and through listening to clients' stories. Therapists may improve consistency in adoption of client-suggested goals through clarifying meaning attached to goals and being attuned to power dynamics and underlying values and beliefs around risk and goal attainability.

In the spirit of opioid shortages, what would you do if there was a propofol shortage? I'm curious of people's plans for various anesthetic scenarios.
We report our experience with medial cuneiform decompressive exostectomy and superficial tendon debridement in 14 cases of recalcitrant tibilalis anterior insertional pain. We reviewed 13 patients (14 feet; 12 females, 1 male; mean age 67.9 ± 7.5; range 55 to 80 years) in whom conservative treatment had failed who had undergone debridement of the insertional tibialis anterior tendon and decompressive exostectomy of the medial cuneiform.
Plantar heel pain is a common disabling condition in adults. Biomechanical factors are important in the development of plantar heel pain. Quantitative changes in rearfoot alignment in patients with plantar heel pain have not been previously investigated. From April 2016 to March 2017, 100 patients with plantar heel pain and 100 healthy individuals were recruited. The foot posture index was used for the measurement of foot alignment. The generalized joint hypermobility condition was assessed using the Beighton scale.
