Types of Anaesthetic
There are a number of different types of anaesthetic and most hysterectomies are performed while the patient is under a full anaesthetic.

Muscle, bone and nerve (musculoskeletal) pain is more prevalent as people age, with up to 80% of people 65 years of age and older experiencing daily pain. Widespread pain that affects multiple areas of the body —- the hallmark feature of fibromyalgia —- affects 15% of women and 10% of men over age 50 accordi...
