Cramps!! :(

Okay, I know I need this surgery, so does my uterus have to remind me why 2 weeks before my castle trip? I have cramps! I had to reschedule a phone interview and a lunch for today! I am so sick of my life being limited and controlled by pelvic pain!

Yeah, of course, I knew I'd get cramps with my last period. It's inevitable. So why is it so enraging and surprising each time? Why do I keep expecting that *this* might be the pain-free one, when it never is? Why do I tell myself between periods that cramps really aren't that bad? It's not unbearable, but I'm not stepping foot out of this house today, and my heating pad is my new umbilical cord.

So ladies? If I start having second thoughts as my castle date gets closer, would one of y'all whap me upside the head and point me to this topic?

Here's hoping Vicodin works as well on the big cramps as it does on the little ones.

Cramps!! :(

My last period was 5 days late...and soooo painful , I took 1600 mg Motrin and then took a hot bath. THEN, took two Percocet, climbed in bed with my heating pad and STILL had tears in my eyes from the pain. It was horrible . My ovaries were :burning: and really still right side is bad. I am so happy, albeit scared, to visit the castle next week.

Hang in there! Better days are coming

Hi LisaLee

Ahhhh Sweety so sorry that your body decided to remind you why you need this surgery. But just think this is the last one . So hold that heating pad close and keep repeating : Last time, Last time. God Bless and I am sure we won't have to whap you up the side of the head and make you read this post. You will remember.

Cramps!! :(

Oh, that sounds familiar...... My last period (ever), which comes and goes when it wants to, arrived with the stomach virus. Imagine that, nothing was staying in my stomach. I can't remember the last time I had a cycle without pain relievers. Needless to say, it was an excruciating experience!!! I lost so much fluid (excessive heavy bleeding, had the runs, throwing up). I became dehydrated, on top of already being anemic.

If there was any doubt left in my mind, about this surgery, it's gone. In between cycles, I too would rationalize that my periods where not that bad. I've had excruciatly painful cycles for over 15 yeras. Who am I trying to fool???? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

My castle date is March 12th. I've made the right decision. I have large fibriods, an ovarian cyst, enlarged ( and getting larger) uterus, anemic.

Best Wishes and take care.
