I am relieved that you have FMLA. A lot of people work for smaller employers and are not protected. Some of our sisters have lost their employment. So, its great that you are protected and have used this to your benefit.

If I were in your situation, I'd call the DOL (Department of Labor) and ask about my options and rights and whether or not ADA applied in this situation, as well as FMLA. You can probably get the information anonymously. I'm not suggesting you file any sort of complaint, just that you make sure you know all of your options. Your employer may not even be aware of all the options and may appreciate your helping them to avoid issues. Laws and regulations change constantly and there might be something available to you that you had not considered, and certainly worth a call to find out, IMHO.

I wish for all my sisters good health and happiness and that includes a fulfilling work life, for those who work.

Well, seems like having emailed my Dr when I made the appt.
He said he'd write a scrip and refer me back to my GYN,
So I asked his advice on how to approach the subject of:
#1 - getting confirmation quicker
(no rounds of "it can't be you just had surgery")
#2 -if confirmed - getting a more skillfull surgeon.
He said he saw my point and refer'd me to UW medical ctr.

Hi. Michelle35, I was reading your posts and I just took my first spray of Synarel. I am 35 and had my TVH last year due to what they thought was endo but turned out to be adenomyosis. I have since had severe pelvic pain. I am on an unpaid med leave from work until this is fixed. My big concern are the side effects. My children say, "Mom's gunna go evil". What were your major side efffects? We are having a heatwave right now so I am not looking forward to night sweats, lol.

I to suffer what the docs now call " adhesion disorder" , it's an ugly monster in my book!!!

Everyone here has given some wonderful insight but after going back and re-reading your post I'm wondering if

Quote: "Month or 2 of pain I assumed was associated with the laparotomy healing. Also sarted having upper abdominal pain, began to see a GI Doc for it. (later determined? to be too much stomache acid.treating with nulev and prilosec currently,it's also getting
worse.) " Quote

Has anyone checked your gallbladder dear??????? This sound exactly like what I have been going thru for the past 6 months!! You just might want to bring that up to your GI doc!! Just my worth...but a thought sweetie.
