PCOS :: Cauterization For Cervical Erosion / Ectropion

Oct 31, 2014

I was just wondering if anyone had been diagnosed with Cervical Ectropion? After many months of being told my abnormal bleeding was just due to PCOS, I finally saw a GP to did a proper examination on my cervix today.  She has said I have Cervical Ectropion and that I need a referral to a gynaecologist to have it cauterised.  She did say they will have look and around and check everything else is fine, which worried me slightly that there was something she wasn't telling me.  But knowing that she has referred me on a 4-6 week referral and not the 2 week referral reassures me a little.

Anyway, I was just wondering if this common with women who have PCOS, the GP explained it was likely due to my hormones, since it usually happens in pregnancy or women who are on the pill.

Any insight/advice/reassurance appreciated.

Exercise After Nasal Cauterization?

I had my nose cauterized not even 3 hours ago, it was the left side and I have the right side due in two weeks. Since I got home I've been researching what I can expect etc and I've read a few articles that suggest avoiding exercise for the next week or two? Is this necessary? I go to the gym 6 days a week and do a mixture of long runs, short and intense interval runs, weights and core work. When can this be resumed? I also train in boxing however I was fully expecting to have to put this on hold for however long it takes for my nose to heal but when will I be able to carry on with this and get hit without risking undoing what the doctor has done to my nose? On a separate note, my nose is quite sore, its extremely runny and I feel like I have a cold, when can I expect to feel like my normal self?

Possible To Get Pregnant After Tubal Cauterization?

I'm 43 years old, my tubes were cut and burn 13 years ago after my third kid. I had my normal period in february and I had sex 2 1/2 weeks ago. About a week ago I feel like pregnant, my belly is getting big, by boobs are sensitive and also I feel like something is moving inside of me, those are the only symptoms that I have right now. I think if I were pregnant it's very early to feel something moving. I took a pharmacy test 3 days before my period comes but the test was negative. Nothing hurts in any way except that I have lumbar pain, my waist hurts a lot. I'm concerned my period was supposed to come today 3/8 but it's missing. My worried is that if I'm not pregnant it's is possible that something it's wrong with the cauterization?

Cervical Rib Syndrome :: Bilateral Cervical Ribs With Neckache And Shoulder Pain

I'm 42 and i have just found out that i have this condition. The 1st doctor i saw after having an x ray didn't bother to tell me that i had this condition, and it was the next doctor that did. I have been having symptoms for the last year or so , which are dizziness, some numbness in my little finger and ring finger, neck ache, which is muscular and nerve extending to my shoulder and arm i have also been getting jaw ache, and i've had tension headaches for years.

i'm not sure if all these symptoms are due to having 2 ribs. i'm waiting to have an mri in october.

However i am seeing a 'sacral-cranial' osteopath who is really helping, and i am also having homeopathy which is also helping.

I'm not sure what is going to happen and it's comforting to know that there are others out there that will know what I'm talking about and who i can talk to.

Cervical Rib Syndrome :: Average Size And Width Of Cervical Ribs

I have recently been told after 15 years of going to the doctors asking for help i have 2 cervical ribs and need to see a respiratory specialist.

I have been suffering with breathing problems which they did put down to asthma which might not be now, pains in my back, stomach, neck and arm. and sometimes get numbness in my arm and fingers.

I am cold and feel weak and tired all the time. I can sleep for days and still feel tired, the more i do the more i feel ill.

I have a large bone showing above my left collarbone which i can feel a large tube or vein above it going over the top of the bone which i measure to be about 2" wide.

Just wanted to know what the average size and width of cervical ribs.

Spinal Cord :: Cervical Radiculopathy From Pinched Cervical Neck

Have been suffering for 3 months with pain from cervical issues (diagnosed through MRI) - bulging discs, some stenosis, degenerative disk disease that is causing severe pain from neck through shoulder blade, underarm and down left arm. As I've had arthritis in my neck for a long time I know this pain came about from a stress injury to my neck. Have tried much conservative treatment (some physical therapy, chiropractic, and medication - currently 900 mg gabapentin and hydrocodone and ibuprofen and various others that I stopped.) I just had a Epidural Injection last week and thru this week experienced a bit of relief but not what I was hoping for. My question is has anyone gotten better with this type of problem doing these measures and had their problem resolve or at least get about 75% better without having any surgical intervention. My doctor thinks we can resolve this without surgery but also said surgery would be extensive as I have about 4/5 bad levels. I'm thinking of trying acupuncture and would appreciate anyone's input. Very tired of the pain and getting a bit depressed.

Cervical MRI :: Degenerative Disc Disease Involving The Cervical Spine

I've been having pain and neck stiffness for years, and also have rheumatoid arthritis. Several months ago I started having "pins and needles" feeling in my left arm that became more and more intense from my shoulder down into my hand, mostly my thumb. I had an MRI, this is the result:

C2-3: There is a small posterior right lateral disc osteophyte complex as well as advanced facet arthropathy, particularly involving the right facet joint. This causes marked narrowing of the right neural foramen.

C3-4: There is moderate facet arthropathy, causing moderate narrowing of the left neural foramen. No evidence of canal stenosis. Right neural foramen appears patent.

C4-5: There is mild disc space narrowing and a right paracentral posterior disc/osteophyte complex causing minimal ventral impression on the thecal sac and mild narrowing of the right neural foramen. There is also moderate right facet arthropathy.

C5-6: There is advanced disc space narrowing, with prominent spurring both anteriorly and posteriorly. There is endplate sclerosis on both sides of the disc space. A prominent central posterior disc/osteophyte complex causes moderate to severe canal stenosis at this level with mild flattening of the cord. There is also moderate bilateral facet arthropathy. Neural foramina are significantly compromised at this level.

C6-7: There is a small posterior disc/osteophyte complex with minimal ventral impression on the thecal sac, but no significant canal stenosis or neural foraminal narrowing.

C7-T1: Normal.

OTHER: There is degeneration and narrowing at the C1-2 articulation with some irregularity of the dens.

CONCLUSION: Advanced degenerative disc disease involving the cervical spine, which is most severe at C5-6 with canal stenosis and bilateral neural foraminal narrowing at this level.

My doctor never called me, just sent me an email that said "no bulging disks, just arthritis", and he suggested I go see a pain management doctor. What should I do? I am having a really bad day today, my arm has been asleep more than it has been awake, and it's becoming more painful.

Cervical Spondylosis :: Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion

I'm 48 suffered with cervical spondylosis for around 6 years, in the last two years it's got so painful. I have tried all meds, last year I had an op foraminotomy where they drilled the left side spurs C4 to C7. But the last year has been a nightmare the pain is worse. I have now had more MRI & CT scans more meds and having two injections next week. I asked the long term affect of my neck I was told I have a neck of a 70 year old. What dose this actually mean? Wheelchair what?? I am also on the list for a anterior cervical discectomy & fusion.

I have a fall time desk job which doesn't help at all but have a mortgage... holiday is taken as sick days.

Cervical Spondylosis :: Anterior Cervical Discectomy/Fusion

I am recovering from Anterior Cervical Discectomy, which became necessary to avoid drastic further deterioration.

I would like to tell you about my experience and what helped me. My problem started quite unexpectedly with a persistent back ache at work (I am an office worker). Within days it was so bad that I was vomiting with pain and had to stop working (I was commuting to London). I was on morphine within three weeks, but it did not help either. I won't list here all the various painkillers I was prescribed, which helped to certain extent, but the pain was so bad that I was suicidal. The doctors communicated with me hardly at all except writing another painkiller prescription. I felt totally abandoned by them. I tried osteopathy, ordinary physiotherapy and Bowen's therapy. Bowens worked the best but nothing would give more than a few hours relief from the extreme pain. My husband then hit on the Tens machine and that was the only thing that really helped. I would recommend it without hesitation. I dropped the morphine, which was a bit of nightmare for me anyway, and managed to live with the Tens machine.

Unfortunately my problem rapidly progressed to me losing strength from my arm and from my fingers and a neurologist recommended the dissection and fusion. It is not an easy fix, but to me it saved my life. I went back to work four months after the operation, seven months after first feeling the pain. I could not say I'm as good as new, but the pain has gone. My neck is stiff, gets tired very easily and a bit uncomfortable. I cannot lift, push or pull anything heavy. But I'm here, enjoying my family and grandchildren. I couldn't ask for more. I'm 63 and now feeling my age, that's all.

Dent In Arm - Fat/muscle Erosion?

I'm not entirely sure if this is in the right place, but for a good while now, there's been a bit of a 'dent' in my left arm. I can't take a picture because you can only really notice it when you feel it, but there's a definite dent in muscle or fat or something.

Oddly enough, it's the exact place where I used to rest my arm all the time against my desk, but I wouldn't have assumed it's possible for fat/muscle to erode away.

Diagnosed Cervical Spondylitis Not Cervical Spondylosis

I was diagnosed with cervical spondylitis when I was 27 ( had a severe fall when I was 16 yrs old...fell 2 stories), am 48 now and moved to Wales almost 2 yrs ago from South Africa and since being here, my pain has increased in intensity. Used to get steroid injections and am aware that I won't get that here in the U.K. I now suffer extreme nausea due to the pain and can only dry retch, as the valve below the oesophagus was tightened yrs ago and now prevents me from throwing up. I would appreciate if others with this condition could tell me what the maximum dosage of Ibuprofen one can take. Taking the normal dosage (2) does not alleviate the searing pain or spasms.

I am also very confused. After x-rays, all dr,s have said cervical spondylitis and not cervical spondylosis. Been told that I don't have arthritis and yet this is not ankylosing spondylitis, which 1 dr said it was..(he never saw the x-rays)...really confused even after numerous x-rays and dr,s. I am almost on the verge of giving up hope of getting effective painkillers from dr,s here. Do the exercises, use heated neck bags and nothing much helps, especially when I get a flare up.

Need to know if increased dosage of Ibuprofen would help.

Recurrent Corneal Erosion Years Later Due To Dry Climate

I've just moved to a very dry climate and have spontaneously experienced a corneal erosion.  I had a recurrent corneal erosion many years ago.  Is it possible that this is the same injury returning or is it more likely that I have scratched my eye without realising it?

Eyes :: Recurrent Corneal Erosion Syndrome

I had this condition undiagnosed for many years its frequency has increased from once a year to twice a month or so. Eye drops such as chloramphenicol and chloromycetin make it worse. Chloramphenicol ointment Chloromycetin ointment and Simple eye ointment seem to be the only treatment that works. I have to sleep on my back to avoid my eye burying into the pillow if I sleep on my side. To ensure I wake up and have no problem I have to apply a blob of chloromycetin and a line of simple eye ointment into both eyes at bedtime.

Cervical Headaches Always Come Along With The Cervical Ribs?

I have Bilateral Cervical Ribs. I also suffer Cervical headaches.  Do the Cervical Headaches always come along with the ribs? Also, is it the Arthritis in the Cervical Ribs that are causing me so much agony?  I have pain every single day. It gets so old, and boring.  What does it take for them to remove them?  I have a Kidney Disease as well, so I'm not able to take many pain meds, and the ones I have taken really don't do much of anything for me.  I don't believe I have the TOS....think it would still be possible they would end up removing them WITHOUT having the TOS?

PCOS :: Insulin Resistance?

I was diagnosed with PCOS at 13. In late teen/early 20'a, dx with insulin resistance (IR) and put on Glucophage. It was great at first. I was able to lose weight for the first time, and so on. Took me off it after I lost weight. Years later went back on it, as again the weight issue, and that time I could not tolerate it. Major side effects. Doc said my choices were to endure the side effects or learn to live with the IR symptoms. My symptoms then were weight gain with inability to lose, facial hair, excess testosterone levels, excess androgen, cysts on ovaries, etc., so I told myself to just learn to live with it.

Fast forward to present day and now I am 48. My husband and I were never able to conceive, and now I am having major problems, all of which I can trace back to IR. I have a gene mutation called APOE. When you have this, you usually are Choline deficient and this in turn can attribute to developing IR. Right now I am having major digestive issues with gas, bloating and reflux, racing heart (heart was checked out by a cardiologist and it was fine), vagus nerve overreaction, (all due to the bloated stomach pressing up against the vagus nerve), fatty liver (non-alcohol related, but IR and choline related), low stomach acid, muscle spasms (despite plenty of daily magnesium, potassium levels are normal), anxiety attacks, feel like I am going to pass out, etc. I am now treating with naturopath, as I have Lyme disease and Epstein-Barr as well and no traditional doctor has been able to help me. she has been a Godsend. She has run a battery of stomach tests on me, of which I am getting the results today. Since I cannot take Glucophage, she has a natural alternative to it, without the side effects, which I am probably going to end up taking. I am just wondering if anyone else has had any of the symptoms from the IR that I am having. The worst is the upper stomach bloating and gas. I look and feel like I am 10 months pregnant, and I'm not eating carbs or other things to make me gassy.
