Facing Pelvic Pain: A Guide for Patients and Their Families

Facing Pelvic Pain: A Guide for Patients and Their Families

By Elise J.B. De MD and Theodore A. Stern MD

 

 

Facing Pelvic Pain is for anyone whose life is affected by this condition. Written by leading health care providers, researchers, and advocates in the field, Facing Pelvic Pain combines top-tier medical information and compassionate counsel on the diagnosis and management of the condition, with a caring and sensible approach to the physical and emotional aspects of living with pelvic pain and its complications.

This book provides easily readable and trustworthy information; it is divided into twenty-one chapters that ask and answer pertinent questions about pelvic pain and its medical and psychiatric/psychological care. A glossary of terms provides important background information to readers (e.g., about medical processes, medications, nutrition, exercise, risk-reduction); online resources and references are also offered; words italicized in the text are defined in the glossary. Each of the chapters is accompanied by selected references, illustrations, and photographs. The Treatment Map provides a place to log all relevant information in an organized format, facilitating communication with providers and visualization of the next steps for diagnosis and management.
