Another Me Update

Its been over a month since my last post. Why? Well, in all honesty, I was struggling with writing about Endo when it was consuming so much of my time and thoughts already. Trying to put it down on paper (or on a computer in this case!) was very hard and I have always said I would only continue with my blog when it was working for me. It was meant to help, not hinder me. There was so much hope and optimism that my surgery would make a difference to my pain, and so when it didn't, it was a massive disappointment. Not just for me but those around me too. Things have been tricky, and as I wrote in my previous posts, the reality of the big op happening is very slowly sinking in. However, as it sinks it, it means I can also start to process it and get my head around the emotions that come with it. That comes with time and the break has been good for me. For a while it felt like everything was very negative but we're on the up. So here I am, I'm back and typing away...

So whats been happening... Since my last post, I received the letter in the post regarding the different types of hysterectomies and further information from my Consultant. I have been very honest about my lack of interest in going back on the injections to put my body into menopause which he seems to be concerned about, but I have done that three times now and I hate who I become on them. Something to discuss I'm sure and whilst I know they're the professionals, I am also very aware that ultimately I am the one who has to deal with the side effects which we all know can be very unpleasant. I can't say I took too much of the information regarding the op on board at this point. Maybe theres still an element of me sticking my head in the sand but I will come to that when I absolutely need to. And yes I know thats going to be sooner rather than later. I have also received my appointment through to see the other Consultant for a second opinion. Unfortunately thats not until July, so as always its a waiting game. But its now only two weeks until my appointment with Mr W so hopefully that alone will keep me going until the next one.

Along with the upcoming hospital appointments, three weeks ago I started my counselling sessions. I am going to London Bridge to see a lady who specialises in fertility counselling. Its a bit of a trek on a weekly basis but I have sign off for another ten sessions so I'm really hoping they will be of help. I'm not entirely convinced after two but I'm going to continue to give it a shot...

In other news, three weeks ago I also found out I will be going to Australia to work for three months as of August. How amazing is that?! I don't think I completely believe it myself yet to be honest. But its HUGE! Huge and exciting but equally daunting and nerve-wracking. My work have been fantastic and said they will ensure I've got easy access to the health system whilst I'm out there, just in case I need it. At least thats one less thing to worry about hey. And I know I'm one of the lucky ones who has such an understanding company that I work for. But if nothing else, I hope it gives people hope that there are good companies out there that will support you and continue to provide you opportunities regardless of your health! I know its something I've written about previously and that has been a concern for me personally but it just proves that people don't stop believing in your ability just because you've been dealt a duff hand.

And finally, a quick mention to our lovely North Essex Endometriosis UK support group. It was our first Birthday yesterday and what a massive difference you ladies have made to me over the past year. I remember being very nervous on the first day but now I have made true friends from it. Thank you for your continued support and heres to another year.

Mini update complete. Promise I won't leave it so long next time, but until then, take care and be kind. Always.

  1. I have suffered from adenomyosis with severe cramps during and after my period. It was very painful and heavy bleeding and severe lower back pain my pain was unbearable to a point of being not able to move and a stabbing like pain on the left of my ovaries. Pain goes away when a clot comes out. But it took a while for the clot to come out. After several meetings with my gynaecologist which she suggested "Hysterectomy" but I refused I know what Hysterectomy is and how heart aching it can be then she stated that Allopathic treatment will help in pain management but it will not cure the disease. I started treatment with a drug named "endoheal 2 mg". This gave me pain relief but reduced my periods almost to no periods with numerous side effects - spotting and fluctuation in my dates. I was not mentally satisfied to bear the side effects so I came across ''Ayurvedic doctor" who started my treatment with herbs. Though I continued above drug 'endoheal 2 mg'" parallel for nine months for easy pain management. From then I continued taking the treatment. It reduced the size of my lesion but did not reduce it further after few months. And there was no relief in pain during menstruation but my Dr. Advised me to continue it during 3 months without any gap. I had noticed a quick ageing of my skin in the last 2 years. I am a smoker but for some reason I feel my quick ageing has to do with something else because I have been smoking for a long time and it's only recently that I noticed a fast decline of my skin elasticity. After then pain radiates very badly in my left leg, lower left back and left side of my vagina. The pain normally start anytime during 3, 5,6 days, but at time I had to take a painkiller for this also as it irritates whole day. Then pain disappears after fews day. My digestion was slow but Dr. Ronnie's supplements has improved it impossible situations is becoming possible miracles gradually.

    I was lucky to read in the internet about a lady who was cured from Adenomyosis through Herbal Medication. I contacted Ronnie through an email address I got from a testimony shared on the internet. Without further delay I made an order, I switched over to it. I had great breakthrough, that in the first month, I was already testifying of the effective of the Herbal medication. After 3months course of taken the medicine, all symptoms were gone. It has been 1 year and four months since I became free from adenomyosis. Anyone who is not in my position would not understand what I went through, the heart break, the pain and how frustrated I was for 6 odd years. Believe me, it was hell. I am so happy; I never believed I will be this happy again in life. My story is quite lengthy, it might help you too. You may contact Dr. Ronnie to know more via his email on. ronniemd70@gmail.com
