The post Such relief – Hayley’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association.
I had always looked forward to having children , unfortunately after two failed attempts of IVF we decided to call it a day. Each month was no picnic but was told by my doctor (what did you expect every month!); I’m no longer see this doctor. So put up with what I thought was normal.
After my mum died in 2014 from ovarian cancer mum left it to late and of should of had a hysterectomy 30 years ago but was too frightened of the operation and hospitals.

I had put up with a lot of discomfort each month I found out why was because I had been told I had thyroid’s and cysts when I was having the the scans through IVF. To continue with the IVF I had had 3 small procedure’s.
My op was 20 July 2015( just turned 50 ) my op took 41/2 hrs due to a lesion which was attached to my bowel, bladder, womb and appendix they had to bring another surgeon in before my hysterectomy op could go ahead hence the length of my operation.
I remember looking at the clock in recovery and it was 3.10pm; I’d gone down at 9.00am. I can say hand on heart it wasn’t as bad as I thought, this is coming from someone who doesn’t do hospitals.
Once I was back on the ward…

However, its role in tumorigenesis and tumor progression remains unknown, especially with regards to colorectal cancer (CRC). In this research, we measured the expression of UQCRC2 protein by immunohistochemistry assay in 89 paired paraffin-embedded tumor tissues and corresponding adjacent normal ti…

PURPOSES: Accurately localizing colorectal cancer during surgery may be challenging due to intraoperative limitations. In the present study, localization of left-sided colon cancer (LCC) by CT scan is compared to colonoscopy.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Consecutive patients with LCC located by colonoscopy and CT scan and undergoing left-hemicole…

INTRODUCTION: Lung cancer is predominantly a disease that affects the elderly; about 30-40% of lung cancers are diagnosed in patients aged 70 or more. The increasing number of elderly patients over the next decades is generating a new social and health problem; despite that, these patients are under-represented in clinical trials and under-treated in clinical practice. Areas covered: The main difficulty in treating elderly patients is to maximize the therapy benefits while minimizing the treatment risk. Elderly patients show a vulnerable clinical profile…
ConclusionsIntentional fracture of the pterygoid plates has a role in the retropositioning of the maxilla with good healing at the fracture site, little relapse and satisfactory postoperative stability.
In conclusion, the injection site should be selected according to the symptoms being treated, and could be used as an adjunct to other sites to improve outcome.

LiisananttiAbstractWe retrospectively studied 136 patients who had free flap reconstruction for cancer of the head and neck at a single centre (2008–2015) to evaluate complications, assess factors associated with them, and analyse their impact on outcome. Preoperative and perioperative data, and surgical and medical complications were recorded, and the impact of the complications on duration of hospital stay and survival w…
