You were right, it is the devil.
I've been on the pill for a month. The doctor put me on provera to give me a period and I spotted. But had my first period in almost a year this month. The pills have gotten me back to normal and the doctor says we will be able to have kids whenever we decide we're ready for them.
That sounds like great news Rhythm! So happy for you!
I have some good news of my own! The Remicaide seems to be helping my Chrons. I have had several "normal" poops in the past few weeks. No diarrhea! This is huge because I haven't had "normal" poop for at least a decade. The side effects aren't too bad. I'm tired all the time and I am losing a little bit of hair on top at my hairline. I also took my last steroid pill on Saturday! Now, maybe I can get rid of this extra 70 pounds. Bad news.....I started having seizures again. I had two last week. Was in the hospital for a few and they bombarded me with seizure meds. I was so doped up, I had a panic attack or something. I started freaking out. I'm not one to enjoy being high and it freaked me out. So, no driving for the next 6 months. This sucks because it is the beginning of summer and I had plans:-( But at least I poop "normal!" My lady parts are doing pretty good too. I have to have a procedure to confirm cystitis, but I have been putting it off because I don't want a tube stuck up my cooter while I am awake. I don't like the thought of half a dozen people watching. Meh! Buuuuuuuuut, at least I poop "normal!" :-)
Sooooo I saw a second Dr last month and she removed my IUD. And immediately scheduled my surgery. They removed a softball size mass from my left ovary, and lanced a smaller one off the right. I already feel better, now the only pain I have are the incisions.
I'm scheduled for a complete hysterectomy this Friday. I was suppose to have one in May 2009 but my doc's house caught fire the night before the surgery and he was injured. True story. I have since been under treatment with Depo Provera with menopause breaks of six months at a time. I really didn't expect to have this surgery anytime soon. I went to the doc last Wednesday and they said it is time. It should be a fairly simple. They are using the Davinci robot, so I will have 5 or 6 small incisions vs being gutted. The doc said they will pull my gizzards out of my vag and I told her as long as I was a sleep I didn't care. I also hope she's the one who reaches up there for it, because she has the smallest hands in the group! I am scheduled to see a Pulmonologist about the lung nodules. My family doc group can't decide if it is cancerous or not and are arguing over whether I should have a biopsy. I will let the Pulmonologist decide. The family doc got pissed at me a few weeks ago because he wants me to have a port for my Remicaide infusions. The Remicaide has weakened my veins so bad that they collapse all the time. My arms still have slight bruises from June. It's like they won't heal. Anyway, I told the doc I didn't want a port because I don't want the procedure done (it freaks me out) and I don't want the risk of infection. I couldn't tell exactly what he was saying, but I think he was cussing me out. lol I had an infusion this past Friday and they had to use a butterfly needle and poke me up at the crease of my armpit. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't ever need a port. It worries me for Friday though. They are gonna have to dig, big time, to get those lines.
Good luck on Friday, Morbid!!! Drink lots of water the 24 hours prior to your surgery it will help your veins... also a warm towel wrapped around the area helps too. I am a hard person to find a vein on - took 13 tries and 9 different staffers the last time my IV infiltrated at the hospital.
When I had mine done, I was so happy to have my hysterectomy because I had felt so bad for so long. I was able to keep 1 ovary though so I wouldn't go into instant menopause at 32. It is still hanging in there at 49 - but I have had several cysts on it in the years since my surgery.
You will do fine!! And you will be amazed at how good you feel. What about the port makes you squicky??
I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to. - Donnie Darko
The port thing freaks me out because of the incision into the jugular vein. I just don't like the thought of my jugular being cut open and a tube stitched to it. If the tube detached for any reason, I'm dead. It would be over fairly quickly, but I just don't like it. AND, you're awake for it, from my understanding. No thank you. Do you have experience with ports? Maybe you can relieve some fears.
Thanks for the reps guys! Hugs! But I don't know who you are because losers can't see reppers unless you sign:-)
My periods are getting closer together. The last two were 27 days apart and this one was 33 days from the last one. I guess it's better than 70 something.
Surgery went well. They used the Davinci robot which is suppose to be better because it is less invasive. My belly is black and purple all over and I'm sore as hell, but it is a lot less painful than my first belly surgery. I have four incisions about 2-3 inches in each quadrant of my belly. I guess I had a shit ton of adhesions from my previous belly surgery so it took longer than expected. I tell ya, my freaking cooter bones are so sore, I bet the dude with the biggest hands reached up there to yank them gizzards out! They took a pic for me too. I will have to scan it and put it in the NSFW thread:-) Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm off to Percocet land;-)
I was waiting to hear from you! I'm glad you're ok Have fun in Percocet Land :D
glad you're home. hope you're all recovered soon. oh, i love percocet. get some rest, lady.
Thanks guys. It's a slow process, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I haven't had any of my "normal" pain. The only pain I feel is post op. This is a great sign. I'm so looking forward to having less daily pain and moving on with my life. And sex, I think I might be in heat because I am actually looking forward to my next encounter.
Wow, this thread is way too long for me to read everything! But, I've had an issue now for a while, not sure what to do about it, and I've never heard of this happening....all of a sudden I just stopped having my period (I'm 28) and I've always been pretty regular. My first thought was, uh oh I'm pregnant (I'm not on the pill, I haven't been on any birth control for like 7 years now) so I took a zillion tests, they all came out negative. Well, it's been a year now and STILL no period. At first I thought it was due to stress (my period coincidentally stopped right after I got my 2nd job, I was working crazy hours) plus with my bf's 2 kids and a dog to take care of, stress was all I felt. Well, I quit my 2nd job a few months ago, and I still haven't had my period. I feel fine. No pain, no sickness, nothing. I know I should go to the doctor, but I am terrified. Thought I would post here, and see if maybe anyone knows what could be the cause of this. This can't be normal at my age! :(
Go to the doctor. Maybe you have turned into a man.
You slept with mike so he would ban me. change your sig..the pretentious look how hipster face is so old ooh you like guys with glasses..ooooh
it could be a lot of things, most of which aren't like, OMG I'M GOING TO DIE scenarios. my period stopped and i found out i have pcos. YAY! i had like, 6 months of amenorrhea. then a few months of periods where it was like my uterus was projectile vomiting blood. i even ended up in the ER because i was losing a crazy amount of blood.
don't be afraid. get it checked out.
I'd rather have turned into a man than have my uterus projectile vomit blood.
What a fucked up world we live in, where if you don't bleed out of your vajayjay for a year, something is wrong with you.
