Some good info on ligaments supporting uterus - helps understanding of pain

Hi ladies, I have been doing some research on ligaments in pelvic area after my MRI results stated I have endo on pelvic ligaments (as well as lots of other places). I have had endo on my uterosacrals before, but wanted to find out more so I can ask as many questions as possible on Monday when I have my consultant appt. I found this on you tube and now I get why so many of us suffer excrutiating pain in our backs and legs - the uterosacrals in particular attach to the boney triangle at the base of the spine - the sacrum.

I hope this may be of help to some of you ladies.....

Big hugs xx

  • Hi, this sounds really interesting. Do you have the details of where to find this on You Tube?

    Thank you. Katrina

  • Sorry! My mind is mush these days:- this is you tube site thingy:

    If this doesn't work - as I'm useless at tech stuff then type in " Introduction to Female Reproductive Anatomy Part 2 - Ligaments - 3D Anatomy Tutorial" . .... Helped me to understand why when the uterosacrals in particular have endo involved on or around them- they can affect your back and cause pain. The ligaments directly join the sacram, the small boney triangle at the bottom of our spines. This is in very close proximity to the sciatic nerve!

    Hope this is of interest - it's given me ammo for the questions I'm going to ask my consultant in my appt tomorrow. X

  • Brilliant, thank you so much. It will definately help give me a clearer picture so I can ask my Consultant questions tomorrow before my op. Xx

  • Can you put a link to the you tube thing?

  • That's very useful. Having just had a hysterectomy I find it very useful to know where things did connect. It give me a better idea of which bits they stitched together to hold everything where it should be and therefore a better idea of what exercises I need to be more careful with.
