Hysterectomy, ophthalmic migraines, prolapse phobia and belly dance! – Mag’s Story

Sourced from The Hysterectomy Association: Hysterectomy Association - Hysterectomy Association - hysterectomy, menopause and hormone replacement therapy (hrt) information and support for women. Hi I am Mags, I have 3 kids (20, 18 and 16 years old) I am a scientist/ lecturer, I have a hippie-gypsy penchant, and I enjoy natural history walks, belly dancing (amateur) and cooking ( I am a Coeliac so most of my food is home made). Sparing you the details of the how &why I got there, I had a total hysterectomy (keyhole) in West Middlesex University Hospital at the age of 40. A little background on the procedure which from my understanding implies filling the abdominal cavity with a gas (for visibility and maneuvering) making 1 incision inside the belly button for a camera and 3 others, cutting through skin, fat and muscle just above the bikini line, in order to sever the ligaments in the pelvic cavity to detach the uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix and whatever else needs coming out. I got an infection 2 weeks after surgery, slept for most of the first 3 weeks (anaesthesia knocks me out), so I only started to feel human after 6 weeks post op. although even then the kettle felt like it weighed a ton! On my 6 weeks check-up my consultant looked please with her work and recommended that I should have sex regularly, I was quite shocked because frankly that was the LAST thing on my mind. The first 3 months I didn’t attempt to drive much as my days were plagued with ophthalmic mi...

CONCLUSIONS: Expected histological findings and gene expression differences among areas were observed. Photoaging in menopausal women may modulate lipid and aminoacids metabolism and decrease inflammatory and keratinization pathways, cellular homeostasis, immune response, fibrogenesis and filament formation. These findings may help development of new therapies for skin health and aging control.PMID:34851478 | DOI:10.1007/s11033-021-06973-y

Arch Biochem Biophys. 2021 Nov 27:109096. doi: 10.1016/j.abb.2021.109096. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe assembly of amyloidogenic proteins into highly-structured fibrillar aggregates is related to the onset and progression of several amyloidoses, including neurodegenerative Alzheimer's or Parkinson's diseases. Despite years of research and a general understanding of the process of such aggregate formation, there are currently still very few drugs and treatment modalities available. One of the factors that is relatively insufficiently understood is the cross-interaction between different amyloid-forming proteins. In rec...

CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of APMPPE-like presentation described after the BNT162b2 COVID-19 vaccination. Previous COVID-19 vaccination should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of APMPPE disease spectrum.PMID:34851236 | DOI:10.1080/09273948.2021.1995763

This study compares the survey results of Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) between patients who underwent primary versus revision THA or TKA.METHODS: All adult patients who underwent inpatient, elective, primary, and revision THA or TKA at a single institution were selected for retrospective analysis. Patient demographics, comorbidities, functional status, surgical variables, 30-day outcomes, and HCAHPS scores were assessed. Univariate and multivariate analyses were done to determine correlations between the aforementioned variables and top-box HCAHPS survey scores for primary versu...

In this study, we explored the role of CMA in diquat (DQ)-induced α-synucleinopathy and characterized the relationship between CMA and macroautophagy in the clearance of pathologic α-synuclein for the prevention of DQ neurotoxicity. DQ was cytotoxic to SH-SY5Y cells in a concentration-dependent manner, as shown by decreased cell viability and increased cytotoxicity. DQ treatment was also found to induce autophagy such as CMA and macroautophagy by monitoring the expression of Lamp2A and microtubule-associated protein 1A/1B light chain 3B (LC3-II) respectively. Following DQ treatment, SH-SY5Y cells were found to ...
