Options: COVID infection, COVID Vaccine or continue living in isolation. Answer: only one good choice.

No issues other than pain at the injection site, likely attributable to a highly excited IR nurse that finally gets to stab me with a needle ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‹

The science behind this vaccine is solid. Go #ribosomes go!

Patient with chronic pelvic pain undiagnosed for many years found to have pelvic congestion syndrome. This was treated with an outpatient non-surgical procedure called embolization. No stitches ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป No major incisions ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ Home with a band aid ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผโฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
Pelvic congestion syndrome or pelvic venous insufficiency is essentially varicose veins of the ovary, uterus and deep pelvis and typically develops in women who have had multiple pregnancies ๐Ÿคฑ๐Ÿฝ The abnormal blood flow down into the pelvis causes chronic pain much like varicose veins in the legs, among other symptoms.โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
โ›‘After a tiny nick in the skin, a catheter is advanced into these abnormal veins. The veins are then treated with coils and a medication that causes the veins to close down. โฃโฃ
โฃโฃ
Many women live with this condition without a diagnosis or awareness of a treatment option ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Donโ€™t live in pain. Seek an experienced interventional radiologist for embolization ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธโฃโฃ
