*sigh* I was doing so well...

It's been awhile since I've posted here, and I'm sort of in the grey area between "initial recovery period" and "long-term" problems.

TAH in June. Perfect recovery. Started hormones in October (had to wait due to endo).

Immediately, my BP shoots up. Still in normal range, but higher than it's ever been.

Then I start having pains in my stomach, right in the areas where they were last year, except I know there's nothing there.

Then I start having pain and spotting during sex.

Hauled myself to the dr today.
1) Granulation -- pea-sized. Treated and hopefully gone.
2) My pain is where my appendix was. It could be scar tissue or adhesions. This may be more problematic. As long as the pain/discomfort is manageable with OTC meds, I'll deal with that. I don't want any more surgeries unless necessary.
3) The dr has also put my on Zoloft. My emotions are out of whack, and I guess listening to me for 10 minutes made the dr believe me.

(((Tina))) what type and dosage of HRT are you using? Did your DR mention the possibility that your HRT might be causing a regrowth of endo, which could be the cause of the pain? I'm not saying it is, but I'd be sure to use some form of progesterone or progestin as part of your HRT to lower the likelihood of problems in that area.

Glad your DR was able to see and treat the granulation... hopefully that is a thing of the past now.

Yeah. I know/he knows about the possibility of endo regrowth, but because the pain is localized where my appendix was, he's not thinking that's it.

I'm on Cenestin .45/mg (believe that's the correct dose).

I took a Zoloft last night, and I'm not sure if it was the power of suggestion or what, but I slept really well.

I just hate being on a medicine regimen.

Tina, are you taking Zoloft every day, or when you feel you need it? 'Cause Zoloft is something you should take every day, as prescribed.

I hope you'll find out the pain is something that can be zapped. Maybe it's adhesions, maybe it's the appendix or some adhesion to that area. MAYbe it will go away!:smile2:

I just started Zoloft 2 days ago, but I plan on taking it every day as prescribed (as long as my dr thinking it's working well for me).

I am on a unique Zoloft dosage, which is 50mg every other day. 25 daily was too little and 50 daily was way too much (so dizzy one day I had serious reservations about driving home), so my doctor suggested giving this a try. Well, it worked!

I really believe the zoloft is helping me with hot flash control, too. You may find you can lower your estrogen dosage if you are having any negative effects from the estrogen (higher BP, possible return of endo). So, keep that in mind, as well.
