Meet Jeffrey Head. "I'm grateful to be here today, more than I can say in words," says Jeffrey Head of Southwest Idaho. In 2007, Head started experiencing lower back and neuropathic pain. After a CT-directed biopsy, he was diagnosed with sacral chordoma, a cancer that occurs in just 1 in 3 million people a year. "I called my brother-in-law, who is a physician assistant, and he said, 'You need to go to MD Anderson and see Dr. Laurence Rhines. It's the best place in the world for you to be treated.'" After a complete sacrectomy, proton radiation, stereotactic radiation and months of rehabilitation, Head is now able to jog. It's not a fast jog, but for someone without a pelvis it's pretty good. Listen to Head discuss his battle with sacral chordoma, including an amazing reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video explains about The sacroiliac joint dysfunction as a source of low back pain. Due to the proximity of the sacroiliac joint to the hip and the spine, pain of SI joint origin may be attributed to a hip or spine condition rather than the sacroiliac joint itself. SI joint pain is an unappreciated problem causing low back pain . Clinical and radiological evaluation is not usually reliable. The only reliable method for diagnosing SI joint pain is by injection.

Popaholics I'd fast forward to the 7:35 mark and for those interested in just suturing, that starts around the 11:00 mark. For those trying to learn the procedure, the teaching points I would make are the following. First, the lower back, in and of itself is a bit challenging when you go looking for lipomas (especially) and likewise for cysts. There can be an enormous amount of subcutaneous tissue and you can 'lose' your target fairly easily. For this reason, many physicians opt to start with an elliptical incision as they have a greater chance of localizing their target. I did not do so here as a linear incision is less traumatic and seals up a bit simpler in the end. However, had I had difficulty localizing the lipoma, I would have felt very comfortable extending my incision into a broader elliptical one. Second, if you simply cannot find the cyst or lipoma there is nothing wrong with suturing the patient closed and sending them to someone with more experience. I realize that this is not something anyone, the patient included, wants to hear but it isn't the end of the world either. As opposed to simply digging and digging, if you are out of your depth then simple suture the patient closed and send them along. The reality is that this will almost never happen and even if it did, the next surgeon would likely incorporate your incision into his process without creating a much more significant scar. At any rate, this procedure went fairly smoothly and I must apologize again for my hand getting in the way at times. I have been working on this lately and hopefully the newer videos will be of a higher quality. Thanks and take care.

62-year-old female with gradual onset neurogenic bladder symptoms. There is a T1 hypo- and hyperintense mass centered destroying the sacrum. The coronal STIR weighted images demonstrate a predominantly hyperintense lesion with wispy hypointense components. The postcontrast sagittal and coronal fat-saturated T1-weighted images demonstrate heterogeneous enhancement with destruction of the mid to inferior sacrum as well as the coccyx with a markedly distended urinary bladder. A chordoma was favored preoperatively, and the postoperative diagnosis was unchanged. Chordomas represent less than 5% of all primary bone tumors. They originate from embryonic remnants of the primitive notochord which can be found from the level of Rathke's pouch to the coccyx. Typical age of presentation is between 30 and 70 years with sacrococcygeal chordomas typically seen in a slightly older age group. Surgical resection, if feasible, history additionally considered the first-line of therapy. 15NMR254

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describing anatomy of the coccyx (tailbone) as well as treatment of specific injuries associated with the coccyx. The coccyx is commonly referred to as the tailbone. It is the final segment of the vertebral column comprising of two to four separate or fused vertebrae (the coccygeal vertebrae below the sacrum) below the sacrum. The coccyx is a very small bone which most doctors are not very familiar with. The occyx provides an important attachment for tendons, ligaments and muscles. Lumbosacral spine x-rays and MRI will not show the coccyx. If you want to vies the coccyx, order coccyx views or MRI. Dynamic views of the coccyx while the patient is sitting leaning backwards is needed for imaging of the coccyx. These x-rays should then be compared to non-weight bearing films with patient standing or lying to the side. Excessive movement of the coccyx is abnormal. When sitting, the coccyx shifts forward and acts as a shock absorber. The coccyx bears more weight when the person is sitting and leaning backwards compared to when leaning forward. Coccyx pain symptoms (coccydynia) •Pain during sitting or when getting up from sitting. •Pain originating in the middle just above the anus. •Pain improves while leaning forward or to the side. •Local tenderness over the area. The most frequent causes of coccyx pain: •Falling on the buttocks or backwards. •Fracture/dislocation due to trauma or injury •Malignancy •Infection •Pregnancy/labor •Idiopathic Falling on the tailbone can lead to coccygeal pain, known as coccydynia, resulting in chronic inflammation of the sacrococcygeal joint. Dislocation of the coccyx occurs when there is a separation of the coccyx from the sacrum. Types of coccyx injuries •Anterior dislocation •Posterior dislocation •Anterior angulation •Hooked coccyx In addition to hooking and dislocation casuing pain, there may be a side bend deformity causing the coccyx to be angled sharply. Side bend deformity is usualy to the left. Dural tension causing sacrococcygeal syndrome, low back pain and other symtpoms is a non-proven theory. Curving of the coccyx cause increased dural tension. Coccygeal extension releaves tension and back pain. Treatment of coccyx injuries include: •Manipulation •Therapy •Cushion for sitting: doughnut, balloon, etc. •Injections •Surgery as a last resort. Surgical treatment of coccyx injury 1-Incision for exposure of the coccyx 2-Detachment of the muscles inserted into the coccyx. 3-The fractured coccyx is removed 4-The wound is irrigated and closed and the patient is given antibiotics.

Tailbone pain: Causes diagnosis and relief Tailbone pain or pain in the coccyx (the lowest portion of the spine), may occur suddenly after an obvious injury. It can also appear over time, with no apparent cause. The pain may radiate to the hips, thighs, or even to the rectum. It can make sitting difficult, exercise painful, and may even disrupt sleep. The right treatment, as well as some home management strategies, can help. This video explores the causes of tailbone pain, how it is diagnosed, and what can be done to treat it. The technical term for tailbone pain is coccydynia. In most people, the pain is a dull, throbbing ache that feels like a muscle spasm. Some people with tailbone pain also experience sharp, stabbing pain. This pain may occur when physically active or when sitting for extended periods of time. The pain may radiate down the legs or up the back. It can feel like it is in the tailbone itself, or in the surrounding muscles and structures. Sometimes, depending on the cause, tailbone pain may also coincide with: nausea and vomiting. loss of sensation. muscle weakness. digestive discomfort, including pain in the rectum.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describing conditions and treatment methods associated with pain of the hip. Pain can arise from structures that are within the hip joint or from structures surrounding the hip. The hip joint is a weight-bearing joint. The joint consists of two main parts: 1.Ball (femoral head) 2.Socket (acetabulum of the pelvis) Anterior hip pain (deep groin pain) 1-Arthritis of the hip Treatment •Conservative treatment: physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, injections •Surgical treatment: total hip replacement. 2-Labral tear •Diagnosis by MRI. •Conservative treatment: physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, injections •Surgical treatment: debridement or repair. 3-Stress fracture •Diagnosis usually by MRI. •Surgical treatment: usually fixation of the fracture is performed. Early diagnosis is important. 4-Avascular necrosis Treatment •Conservative cases: diagnosis by MRI. Early stages treatment includes decompression and stem cell injection. •Severe cases: usually diagnosed by X-ray. Severe cases treatment includes total hip replacement. •Intermediate cases: intermediate treatment includes vascularized fibular graft. Lateral hip pain Trochanteric bursitis Treatment •Conservative treatment:physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, injections. •Surgical treatment: excision of the bursa rarely utilized. Posterior hip pain Piriformis syndrome Conservative treatment •Physical therapy & stretching •Anti-inflammatory medication •Injections Surgical treatment in rare cases with release of the piriformis tendon. Far posterior pain (SI joint and lower spine conditions) •Injection of the SI joint is the only method to diagnose pain of the SI joint.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the condition of sacral fractures, The signs and symptoms, the diagnostic tests, and the treatment options. Sometimes it is hard to see sacral fractures on x-rays. The sacrum is connected to the pelvis through the sacroiliac joint. The fracture could probably be missed on x-rays. Neurological deficit will decide the outcome of the patient. Neurological deficits may be a nerve root injury or involvement of the cauda equine which affects bladder, bowel and sexual function. The involved nerve root may be L4-L5 causing foot drop or it may involve the sacral nerve roots. There are three types of sacral fractures: fractures in zone I, zone II and zone III. Zone I fractures are a fracture of the ala. They are common in about 50% of patients with fractures of the sacrum. L5 nerve root involvement including foot drop in about 5% of the patients may occur. Zone II fracture is through the foramen. A vertical shear fracture with about 30% of these fracture types having sacral nerve injury. Zone II is usually stable, however they can be very unstable with a vertical shear force. A vertical shear fracture is the worst type of fracture. Fixation may not hold because it is a difficult fracture to fix and it may displace after fixation. This instability will increase the risk of fracture displacement, nonunion, failure of fixation and very poor functional outcome. A zone III fracture usually enters the spinal canal. It is 60-90% neurological deficit and affects the cauda equina. Zone III may either by longitudinal or transverse (u-shaped). Longitudinal involve the sacral canal. Axial loading causes transverse sacral fracture at the weakest area located between S2-S3. One part that goes with the spine and one part goes with the pelvis. It creates a spinopelvic dissociation. Clinical presentation: A patient with a fracture of the sacrum will have about 25% neurological injury. Make sure the patient has a rectal exam and examination of the S2-S5 dermatomes, especially the sensation around the perianal area. Imaging: X-rays could miss the sacral view. Need to get AP, inlet and outlet views. The outlet views will show the foramen very well and will also show any vertical displacement of the fracture. AP views will show the disruption of the arcuate lines and possible involvement of the foramen. Lateral sacral x-rays will show the u-shaped fractures, which is similar to the transverse fracture. CT scan is the study of choice. An MRI will show the status of the nerve root and if there is any encroachment on the nerve root through the foramen. Treatment: Minimally invasive sacral fractures, do progressive weight bearing plus crutches or a walker. Surgical fixation if the fracture is unstable, displaced or if there is neurological deficit. Avoid over-compression of the fracture because it may cause a nerve injury. You may need to decompress the nerve roots for improvement of the neurological status of the patient. Fixation may be done in different ways: Screws, posterior tension band plating or compression bar technique (do not use a lot of compression). The best technique is combined iliosacral and lumbopelvic fixation (triangular fixation). It has the greatest stiffness for unstable sacral fractures.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes miscellaneous tumors of the cervical spine. Hemangioma: •Hemangiomas are benign hamartomatous vascular lesions in the spine. •Most hemangiomas are isolated lesions that affect a single vertebra. •On x-ray, hemangiomas appear as abnormal thickened trabeculae with vertical striation (honeycomb appearance). •Most are asymptomatic and present as incidental finding and do not require intervention. •Preoperative embolization if resection is needed. Osteoid osteoma and osteoblastoma: •Osteoid osteoma and osteoblastoma are histologically similar to each other, however the osteoblastoma tends to grow larger than 2 cm. •Osteoblastoma may sometimes displace characteristics that may be confused with osteosarcoma. •Osteoblastoma – you will do marginal excision. •Osteoid osteoma is almost impossible to visualize onx-ray due to its small size. •The patient usually presents painful scoliosis or torticollis (pain is relieved with aspirin). Aneurysmal bone cyst: •Fluid level oPain could be present oTreatment is excision •Expansile osteolytic lesion with a thin wall containing blood-filled cystic cavities that usually effect the posterior element of the spine. Eosinophilic Granuloma •Caused by histiocytosis X •Usually seen in children under the age of 10 years old. •It is a lytic lesion of the vertebral body that will show on x-ray as a dense ring of collapsed cortical bone sandwiched between intact vertebral discs (vertebral plana). •It is rarely symptomatic and self-limiting. •Conservative treatment with orthosis. •Large tumor may compress the spinal cord and is usually treated by low dose radiation therapy. Giant Cell Tumor •It usually occurs in the sacral region of the spine and less commonly affects the cervical spine. •It may be difficult to distinguish giant cell tumors from other tumors of the spine on x-rays. •This tumor is usually found in the anterior column of the spine. •On x-ray it will appear as a radiolucent expansile lesion with a cortical shell and a bony septa. •Recurrence is common secondary to inadequate resection. •10% incidence of malignant transformation due to irradiation. Osteochondroma •It is a cartilaginous growth on the surface of the bone. •It usually arises from the posterior element (eg spinous processes). •It may not be visible on x-rays. •The radiolucent cap may grow and cause compressive symptoms. •Excision if symptomatic. •Malignant transformation to chondrosarcoma should be suspected if the cartilaginous cap is more than 2 cm in diameter. Paget’s disease •Paget’s disease is a chronic disorder that can result in enlarged bones. •Excessive breakdown and formation of bone tissue which ends by sclerosis giving the ivory appearance on x-ray. •Less likely to develop in the cervical spine and more common in the sacral and lumbar regions. •Differential diagnosis for prostatic metastasis. Osteosarcoma •Osteosarcoma is rare in the spine. •Malignant tumor is found to affect any level of the spine, although the lumbar and sacral regions are more common. •On plane x-ray, osteosarcoma appears as lytic and blastic lesions with destruction of the vertebra and relative sparing of the adjacent discs. Ewing’s Sarcoma •It affects the body of the vertebra. •Most commonly detected in patients between 10-20 years of age. •Appears on x-rays as a lytic lesion with osseous expansion or sclerosis. Multiple Myeloma •It is the most common primary malignancy of the bones and spine. •It is due to malignancy of the plasma cells. •Appears on x-rays as lytic lesions of the bone (punched out lesions). •Skeletal survey is used to screen for other lesions throughout the body. •Bone scans have low sensitivity in detecting disseminated disease. •Treatment is usually radiotherapy. Surgery is used for decompression and/or stabilization. Lymphoma •Mainly Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. •Bone lymphoma is commonly diagnosed between 40-60 years of age. •It can be detected on plane x-rays in only 30-42% of patients. •Treatment is radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Metastasis •The most common tumor that metastasis in the spine are: oProstate neoplasm oBreast neoplasm oLung neoplasm oRenal neoplasm oThyroid tumor •Differential diagnosis – infection oInfection usually affects the end plates oTumor usually affects the body and the pedicles.

The Chordoma is a rare, locally slowly aggressive growing tumor which arises from remnants of the notochord. In 35% of cases it is localised in the clivus. Another frequently occurance is in the sacral region which is more common in children around the 6th year of life. With the clivus chordoma the peak incidence is around the 50th year of life. In the CT you find an expansible, multilobulated, sharply defined mass in the midline with lytic bone destruction and intratumoral calcifications as well as variable contrast enhancement. With MRI the mass presents with intermediate to low signal in the T1 weighted image. Smaller bright areas may be present due to intratumoral hemorrhage or mucus. In the T2 weighted image the mass is very bright due to its high water content. Small areas with low signal can present calcifications, old blood products or mucus. After contrast application there is a moderate to intensive enhancement. On the sagittal plane the mass indents the pons. For differential diagnosis you might think of an invasis pituitary macroadenoma, a chondrosarcoma, plasmozytoma or an bony metastasis of the scull as well as an aggressiv growing meningeoma. The symptoms of a clivus chordoma can be headache, diplopia and signs of a cranial nerve affection like trigeminal neuralgia. The therapy is surgery although in most of the cases a complete resection is impossible so that it is followed by radiotherapy. The prognosis depends on the histological type. The chondroid type has a mean survival time of 16 years where is the very seldom dedifferentiated type has a prognosis of less than a year. In general the mean survival time is between 4 -- 7 years.

Hello Good Friends, This is an Update video on my Cancer Journey. I went for my Pet Scan ~ PT CT Scan ~ Positron Emission Tomography ~ Computed Tomography on August 1, 2018. This was my 3 month check up since completing radiation for Solitary Plasmacytoma on T12. I went back the next day to meet with my Oncologist to go over my Blood work and to get the Pet Scan results. The good news is there is no cancer activity in T12 and it is healing nicely and my Labs have stayed about the same. No huge changes. The bad news is they found another spot on my Sacrum ~ Sacral. Which is the Tailbone. They believe it is another Plasmacytoma ~ Myeloma. My local Oncologist had already been in-touch with my Boston Onco Multiple Myeloma Specialist and they both agree I need to see her. I have an appointment in about two weeks in Boston to discuss what is next as far as testing, treatment etc. Needless to say both Chris and I are numb. This was not the news we had prayed and hoped for. So many of you have been checking in on me these past 3 months and I am so grateful to you all for caring about me. I have a long scary road ahead of me. My local ONCO doesn't now if I will be getting radiation or chemotherapy. My Boston Onco will do over treatment plans with my Husband and I. I have had so much radiation already. 6 weeks for Breast Cancer and 5 weeks for the Solitary Plasmacytoma as well as all the test using radiation. All this radiation isn't good for your body either. I will make occasional updates throughout my Cancer Journey. When I'm at the Cancer Center I make the silly video clips to help me cope. It is a very stressful time and humor does help. Not that this is funny but it does help relieve some of the anxiety. Bless you all!

The protein is produced in a type of white blood cell (plasma cells) in your bone marrow. MGUS usually causes no problems. But sometimes it can progress over years to other disorders, including some forms of blood cancer. It's important to have regular checkups to closely monitor monoclonal gammopathy so that if it does progress, you get earlier treatment. If there's no disease progression, MGUS doesn't require treatment. ******************************************************************** Please Subscribe, Like, Comment and Share: You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/user/NaturesFairy My second Channel: BikingAway: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfgDmWTZuHBlJxcyai0HBWQ You can find me on: Facebook Gluten Free Page: https://www.facebook.com/SharingGlutenFreeRecipes My Blog for all my Gluten Free and some Low Carb Recipes: http://sharingglutenfreerecipes.blogspot.com/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/sharingglutenfreerecipes/ Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/naturesfairy/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/NaturesFairy Goggle+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/104572512004936962263 Tumblr: http://sharingglutenfreerecipes.tumblr.com/ Thanks for watching, Peace ~ Love and Joy Always be humble ~ Always be kind Brenda ~ NaturesFairy ******************************************************************** Multiple Myeloma PT Scan Myeloma Pet Scan Myeloma Sacral Cancer Sacrum Cancer Sacral Tumor Sacrum Tumor Sacral Plasmacytoma Sacrum Plasmacytoma I have Cancer Again Cancer Sucks Plasmacytoma Plasmacytoma of the Bone Plasma cell neoplasms Myeloma Multiple Myeloma MGUS Cancer Blood Cancer Second Cancer My Cancer Journey My New Cancer Journey Plasmacytoma Cancer Journey Myeloma Cancer Journey MGUS monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance Bone Lesion Multiple Myeloma Screening Dana Farber Cancer Center Myeloma Screening Tailbone Cancer Spine Cancer Camera: Iphone 7 Edit: IMovie

Anti Cancer: Cell Regeneration Formula #Quadible #spirilution #frequency Winner #1 = Anti Cancer / Cell Regeneration In 400 B.C., Hippocrates assigned the name of #Cancer or crab to a disease encountered during this era, because of its crab-like spread throughout the body. Cancer's Greek name was "Karkinos." In 164 A.D., Galen of Rome called the disease "tumor" which derived from the word "tymbos" meaning a sepulchral mound. In Latin, it was called "tumore" which meant "to swell." Speaking in my most basic terms to really help the masses understand this pathology, cancer is an anaerobic condition which basically means cancer is the final result or stage of a low oxygen and very acidic state of existence. In a nutshell, this is what cancer is physiologically-speaking. When someone has cancer, oxygen levels in the body are very low. The body's alkalinity is also very low. When there's low oxygen and alkalinity, the body's cells become abnormal. The cells of the body communicate with each other passing along vital information. Oxygen feeds the cells and allows for proper communication. But when there's lack of oxygen, a great lack of oxygen, this communication becomes thwarted and the cells start acting abnormally. This is why you hear many health specialists and experts say cancer is "abnormal cells" or "abnormal cell activity." This is true! Many doctors erroneously say cancer is a proliferation of dead cells, which is not true. If the cells were dead there would be no action. Cancer does denote abnormal cell activity and this abnormal cell activity is due to lack of oxygen and low alkaline level which means excessive acid level or acidosis. Cancer patients/suffers begin to get thin and this is caused by an internal "eating up" process where certain cells start attacking other cells. Now while an "eating up" is taking place in the body, a neoplasm characterized by the uncontrolled growth of anaplastic cells invade surrounding tissue which metastasizes. Neoplasm simply means "any abnormal growth of new tissue, benign or malignant." In other words, neoplasm means "tumor" which explains why cancer patients/sufferers become beleaguered with tumors inside of the body and outside of the body.Anaplastic refers to "anaplasia" which means "a change in the structure of cells and in their orientation to each other characterized by a loss of differentiation and reversion to a more primitive form." Anaplasia is characteristic of malignancy.Tumors exist in two states: benign and malignant. Benign means "not fatal or pernicious." Malignant means "highly injurious, pernicious or fatal." Cancer is usually the cause of malignant tumors. In cases of benign tumors that are common in cases of fibroids and breast tumors, fluidic waste is usually the cause. In cancerous individuals, white blood cells are numerous. The white blood cells begin to outnumber the red blood cells. White blood cells always denote toxicity, imbalance, poison, and foreign invasion of that which is unnatural or that which should not be in the body. Excessive white blood cell count is almost always indicative of cancer. White blood cells have precursors known as "leukocytes," also called "leukocyte precursors." This formula pushes to detoxifying the body, removing #acidity (and mucus), raising the body's pH levels, and making sure the #cells get plenty of oxygen and solar energy while reversing cellular degeneration due to cellular starvation (of vital nutrients and oxygen) by boosting them with what they require: oxygen and high alkalinity. Oxygen is imperative for optimal health and well-being because oxygen feeds and fuels the cells. This formula will also push to fortify and boost the immune system. There's no such thing as precancerous cells. You are being told this so your mind can be activated to create outright cancerous cells. Start thinking in terms of healthy cells and unhealthy cells and if unhealthy cells stay unhealthy for too long, then they will become cancerous in nature. Since all disease first starts in the mind, we have included powerful subliminals to assist in rejuvenating the mind with healthy thoughts. This formula is packed with healing vibrations from amethyst, annabergit, azeztulite, azurite-malachite, bloodstone, colbaltite, fluorite, gold, hematite, red jasper, kernite, lapis lazuli, lepidolite, melanite, moonstone, malachite, All Obsidians, pumpellyite, petalite, rhodochrosite, rose chalcedony, sapphire, selenite, smoky quartz, spinel, sodalite, sugilite, tourmaline, and uvarovite. While Belief is very important, make sure to drink alkaline water followed by distilled water to maximize the effects of this formula. You will want to add Clear Quartz crystal to this water as this will greatly transform the water and make it very healing. Adding liquid chlorophyll also boosts this water's #healing ability.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer that arises from the body’s fatty tissues and is expected to undergo treatment in the next two days. The liposarcoma comprises about one percent of all cancers, according to Dr. Zane Cohen, the physician treating Ford at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital. The type of cancer grows from the body’s fatty and soft tissues, as well as blood vessels, nerves, bones, and other connective tissue. The physicians found a 12 centimetres by 12 centimetres mass in Ford’s abdomen, and also 2-centimetre satellite lesion behind his left hip, in his buttock. The first round of treatment will last three days, after which Ford is expected to return to Mount Sinai 18 days later to receive a second round of chemotherapy. Cohen did not rule out future radiation treatments or surgery. “Sarcoma is really not a cancer that is treated in any way with a cookie-cutter approach. It is a very sort of unique tumour in each individual, and that is why you have very specialised teams looking after these patients,” Cohen said at a news briefing.

Tarlov/perineural cysts are are cysts filled with cerebrospinal fluid that can develop around the spinal nerves, often in the sacral regions of the spine (95% of cases). In this exclusive interview with Rare Disease Report. Reta Honey Hiers, executive director and president of the Tarlov Cyst Disease Foundation talks about the problems of getting a proper diagnosis. Diagnosing Tarlov cysts is problematic for three reasons: 1) These cysts can create a plethora of symptoms that make it difficult to diagnose. 2) One of the main symptoms - back pain - usually lead clinicians to only take images above the sacral region. As a result, the sacral-located cysts are not imaged. 3) Even if the cysts are imaged, many doctors dismiss the cysts as not being symptomatic.

Back pain, especially in the middle or lower back, is the most frequent symptom of spinal tumors. The pain may increase with activity and is often worse at night. Tumors growing within the vertebrae can make the spinal bones weak, causing them to break and collapse, a condition called a compression fracture. The vertebral fractures, as well as the tumors themselves, can compress spinal cord or spinal nerves, causing pain, numbness and muscle weakness in the arms or legs, or even paralysis with loss of bowel or bladder control in the portion of the body below the tumor. Primary spinal tumors develop inside the spinal canal. They are caused by DNA mutations within cells, which can be inherited from a parent or acquired during the person's lifetime. Metastatic spinal tumors spread from cancerous cells outside the spine to the vertebrae, moving through the circulatory system to the bone marrow, where they form tumors.

DISCLAIMER: This video is no substitute for in-person treatment and is for demonstration purposes only. If you suffer from any physical condition and illness, please consult your doctor before receiving any form of treatment. Hey guys! It’s Hina Sheth from Rebalance Physical Therapy. I wanted to talk to you today about reasons why men are having rectal pain, testicular pain, scrotal pain and any other pain in that area. Most physicians don’t realize there’s a group of muscles called the Pelvic Floor that might be the culprit on why you are experiencing all the pain in this region. What is the Pelvic Floor? Your pelvic bones connect in the front to form the pubic bone and In the back to form your sacrum. Underneath, there’s a group of muscles called the Pelvic Floor that connect from the pubic bone all the way to the sit bones, tailbone and sacrum. This spans the saddle area that you sit on. Any pressure will create tension in these muscles. The Pelvic Floor muscles line the openings of the pelvis. Pain in this area likely means the Pelvic Floor muscles are really taut or strained. There could also be taut bands called trigger points that could create pain in this area and even refer pain into the sexual organs. What are Symptoms of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction? Tension in the Pelvic Floor can even affect your release of urine. You might notice you’re having urinary retention, a hard time releasing urine, or even constipation. You also might experience pain – often we hear that it feels like there’s a golf ball, or something foreign in the rectum. Other symptoms you might have include: • Abdominal pain • Bladder pain • Prostatitis-like symptoms (inflammation of the prostate) All of those symptoms could be the result of tight muscles in the pelvic floor. What do you do? Ideally, you need to see a specialized physical therapist that treats men and pelvic floor dysfunction and understands how the pelvic floor is integrated into pelvis, hip and low/mid-back. Those areas often all need to be treated together in order to treat this dysfunction. If you’re in the Philadelphia-area, visit our website www.rebalancept.com for more information or to schedule a complimentary phone consultation. If you’re not in the area but are seeking a recommendation, contact us and we can help you find a professional in your area.

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. Sorry for the low quality,, I uploaded it on SD rather than HD :( Update Cancer Journey Video: I will begin Chemotherapy for Multiple Myeloma next week. In the video I said I will be on 10 medication but its actually going to be 11 medications. The reality of this Cancer is kicking in. One of the Chemo drugs gets delivered by CVS Specialty. You can have it delivered to your house or CVS. I choose CVS as I don’t want to waste a day waiting for it to be delivered anytime from 9 am to 6 pm. So picking it up for now is a better option. Originally I thought I would be on 10 drugs but it’s 11. I don’t like the idea of that at all. I don’t know how they will know what is causing side effects when your on so many drugs. For now my Chemo Cycle is 14 days on 7 days off for 4 cycles. A total of 12 weeks with the goal of knocking the Multiple Myeloma back and hopefully into remission. If that doesn’t work then I will have another regimen and eventually a Stem Cell Transplant. (I don’t even want to think about that) I have to make a chart so I don’t mess up which drugs to take on which days. It’s very overwhelming. I bought a weekly pill box to help me set it up. The One chemo drug that was delivered comes with a pill container that’s connected to ATT it makes a sound and lights up alerting me to take it. If I don’t open the bottle then it sends me a text reminder. Pretty cool technology. During the three week cycle I have to go to the Infusion unit twice a week for two weeks. Then off a week. Then back again. On the off week I have to go in for a IV bone drugs that is suppose to make you feel like you have the flu. My Blood work will be monitored a lot. If my counts get to low I will need a transfusion. My ONCO and Nurse said it’s normal to be anxious and feeling fear of the unknown as I have no idea how my body will respond. I’m really scared. This has rocked my world. I have a great team and I’m thankful for that. We are very blessed to have the best Doctors and Nurses at DFCC. I’ll be on a very strong steroid that makes you bounce off the walls and will keep you awake for days. They said they can give me anxiety pills and sleep pills but I don’t want more drugs in me. I guess I’ll have to see how I feel. Three of the chemo drugs cause rapid excessive weight gain. I’ve worked hard losing 130# and have maintained it one year now. The thought of gaining weight it’s very upsetting to me. The whole darn cancer thing is upsetting to me. But I’m going to kicks it’s butt. It won’t define me. It will be rough I know but I’m a fighter. There is not a cure for this Cancer but it is treatable. My Onco said they are making advances in research and the hope is they will find a cure. That’s what’s helping me cope. I have to believe that. They said I will have fatigue and a whole list of other side effects. I’m missing Chris terribly. He will be home Saturday from China. It was awful timing that he had to go the week before Chemo. The poor guy is so worried about me and has bad jet lag. He said we can do whatever I want this weekend to help me get my mind off Chemo. I definitely want to Canoe or Kayak. Water therapy is the best medicine for me. This is just the beginning treatment for Multiple Myeloma. I’m trying my best to stay focused on getting thru the first cycle. If I think to far ahead I will lose it. I can’t even cry. I’ve been numb just going thru the motions. Nature and Humor helps me thru this difficult time. Thank you everyone for your love and support. ******************************************************************** 3 of the Drugs I will be on: https://myelomabeacon.org/news/2014/07/16/rvd-newly-diagnosed-multiple-myeloma/ My Multiple Myeloma Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXIpnL2_Au8&list=PLxpIKkFqZkfV9AyVRWo1xNEYhPk0mXqpJ For more info: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/multiple-myeloma/symptoms-causes/syc-20353378 https://www.themmrf.org/multiple-myeloma/what-is-multiple-myeloma/plasma-cell-neoplasms/plasmacytoma/ https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/mgus/symptoms-causes/syc-20352362 ******************************************************************** Please Subscribe, Like, Comment and Share: Thanks for watching, Peace ~ Love and Joy Always be humble ~ Always be kind Brenda ~ NaturesFairy ******************************************************************** Blood Cancer Awareness Month Multiple Myeloma Multiple Myeloma Cancer Diagnosis About to begin Chemotherapy Multiple Myeloma Chemotherapy RVD Chemotherapy Sacral Cancer Sacrum Cancer Sacral Tumor Sacrum Tumor Sacral Plasmacytoma Sacrum Plasmacytoma Cancer Sucks Plasmacytoma Plasmacytoma of the Bone Plasma cell neoplasms Myeloma MGUS Cancer Blood Cancer My Cancer Journey My New Cancer Journey Plasmacytoma Cancer Journey Myeloma Cancer Journey MGUS Bone Lesion Myeloma Screening Tailbone Cancer Spine Cancer Camera: Iphone 7 Edit: IMovie

https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/peter-williams-2 On behalf of Peter Williams and his family, please watch and donate what you can. We can all help save Peter Williams life. Peter William and Family: "Two weeks ago, our family recieved the worst news imaginable. We discovered that the most caring and generous man was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of bone cancer. Peter Williams; Husband, Father, Grandfather and an all around family man, is one of the 20 unlucky people in the world per year to be diagnosed with the rare and hard to treat cancer of the spine 'Chordoma'. Surgery would mean a removal of a large part of the spine, meaning that Peter would be left paralysed from the upper back, down. Peter has been recommended for a new and innovative treatment called 'Proton therapy'. The treatment would take place in Florida and would involve standing in a Proton Therapy machine for an hour a day, for 2-3 months. No pain, no surgery, and the cancer would be completely gone. This treatment is not available in the UK until 2018. The National Health trust who would be funding this therapy will be making their decision in a month. By this time, the cancer could have worsened, and there is no guarantee that the funding will be accepted. We are trying to raise £30,000 for Peter to have the same Proton Therapy done privately in Italy. Any leftover money will be donated to the Chordoma charity. To whoever donates, I think it is important to say that not only are you donating to help save this man's life, but you are also donating money to fund research for an amazing new (PAIN FREE) treatment for cancer. Every donation will help, no matter how small it will be hugely appreciated. Please share this post as many times as you can. Lets save this wonderful mans life!" Thank you. https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/peter-williams-2
