Pelvic Pain Cured – Article in Pick Me Up Magazine

by – January 6, 2017

Pelvic pain is caused by pelvic congestion syndrome in between 13 and 40% of women. This can be cured by a procedure called pelvic vein embolisation. The Whiteley Clinic has been specialising in diagnosing and treating pelvic congestion syndrome for the last 16 years.

One of our patients, Heather Scott, has published her story in the Pick Me Up Magazine.

In her article, Heather describes how pelvic pain had ruined her life. She describes how she had been misdiagnosed before finding The Whiteley Clinic.

Once she had found The Whiteley Clinic, and realised what might be wrong with her, she came for a consultation. The consultant agreed that she may well have pelvic congestion syndrome. A specialised scan called a transvaginal duplex scan was arranged.

This transvaginal duplex ultrasound scan for pelvic congestion syndrome was developed by Judy Holdstock, along with one of her colleagues Charmaine Harrison, at The Whiteley Clinic. Judy has continued to develop the scan, and now includes checking the internal veins for any additional compression.

Heather had her scan and pelvic congestion syndrome was diagnosed. Dr David Beckett, a consultant interventional radiologist who works at The Whiteley Clinic, then treated her using pelvic vein embolisation.

This totally relieved her pain and had allowed her to get back to a normal life.
