Phil,
I was so glad to see all of you guys. I thought everyone was back to 100% and moved on with there lives. I truly believe that I can be 100% again and I am praying on it. I still am not on anything either, but I do have that left ovary. However, I am pretty sure it is dead. I am able to wear my clothes before surgery as well, but sometimes, they can get a little tight through the day on times. I went to see my surgeon a couple of wks ago, and his whole attitude is like, "Now what". I am so sorry that I didn't have my regular surgeon hook me up, but he didn't know how to do the LSH. I now have researched that adhesion sufferers may or may not get the LSH. No matter how much you research, it is always something overlooked. I go to my regular GYN in May. I am glad that we are together again.

I am so excited to get my emails again on my aol "inbox" and recognize all of your names! its like I know all of you guys and I've missed hearing from you so much! Jennice, having the laparascopic hyster was the best thing that could have happened to me since I didnt have the huge incision, but definitely dealing with instant menopause has not been easy....for me it was the muscle and joint pain i couldnt deal with. This is my 4th month on the hormone patch and I feel really good aside from the bloating. You are lucky that you havent had to get on anything yet.

Bsister4--Is the osteo due to now being in menopause after the surgery or was that already coming along? I have those tugs/twinges that you're talking about by the way. I always start to worry thinking that my endo might be back. maybe its normal to have the twinges?

Presouz--lets pray about the nodules. I'm sure it will be nothing. my good friend has had the same thing happening for a few years now and they just monitor the nodules. i dont believe she is on any medication for them either. her labs for thyroid have been normal too.

So is anyone bloated all the time on their hormone patch?

Vitamin D deficient depression? Unable to sleep? aches and pains? Can it affect hormo

Sisters I read all the time how some of us suffer from things below. I wanted to share with you all this.. If it helps ONE Person, I will be thankful!!

I just found out Thursday I am vitamin D deficient, I got a copy of my blood work when I went to my thyroid scan which is twice the size it should be and has several nodules, one that is in need of a biopsy. Wondering if this could have been a cause or helped leading to it? I don't see the doctor for follow up till next week but..

I read Vitamin D deficiency may cause muscle pain, low energy and fatigue which I have had for 2 years!! Plus weak bones which can lead to fractures, lowered immunity, and I wonder if my skin problems are linked to this too? I was also shocked to see that depression and mood swings, and sleep irregularities, intestinal problems (such as IBS or Crohns disease) may be a vitamin D deficiency. All of this are things that have racked me for years starting with my low energy. Then I read that Vitamin D and menopause and osteoporosis can all go hand in hand.

Why didnt my doctor check for this years ago? I went to her begging for help for YEARS!!! She told me to go see a shrink.. OMG, man some doctors!! I am so happy I switched doctors. Took me 7 years, but I finally did after I found out she miss read my prolapse issues for years that caused me so much pain. I read also being deficient can cause some diseases too! HOW LONG HAVE I suffered? I hope it didnt cause any irreversible damage.

I urge anyone with symptoms to get tested!! And those who are doing routine blood work, ask for this test to be added on! I read as we age, especially over 50 our bodies slowly lose the ability to mobilize vitamin D, a process that lowers our calcium absorption rates. Which creates a higher risk of osteoporosis, particularly in post-menopausal women LIKE US!!!

Also they are not sure how sex hormones affect vitamin D conversion, but women seem to have a harder time stimulating the mechanism that builds bone tissue when their estrogen levels are reduced.

I also read a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D can help control some symptoms of PMS, like tearfulness, anxiety, and irritability wish I knew that before!! I am sure it will help my teenager, I am going to make sure she has her vitamins and calcium at least 5 days of the week, she always forgets and plays it off as oh well.

Thanks for letting me vent, I cant believe after all my searching for answers, it may have been as simple as this?!!! I did a search on hystersisters and read some really great stuff. I also did a search on google.com and learned a lot! Funny thing, my mom just found out the day before I did she had the same Vitamin D deficiency we just talked about it today. I pray taking supplements as guided by her doctor helps her. I started taking a supplement today too, I hope that is OK with my doctor... I am at a 25 when I should be up to a 100. Anyone else have this happen to them?


SIDE NOTE! Some people who think they have fibromyalgia could really just have a lack of Vitamin D! I have a great PDF file I can send you just for the asking..
