What is/was the worst thing . ..

The worst thing is the pain, of course. Right now I'm experiencing it for the last time. I'm two days late and I feel like someone is stabbing me in my lower left pelvic region repeatedly. I can't sleep and I'm nautious. My back hurts and I have pain radiating down my left leg. I'm moody and I've had migraine headaches for the past two weeks. When the flood waters come, I'll be confined to the house for a good three days! Thanks for letting me vent!!

I am sorry, but you made me laugh and my six-year-old wants to know why, which just makes me laugh even more.

7. anemic- looked like death warmed over
8.tired all the time
9. depressed- lost interest in life

Thats just a few of the things I hated most. Feel really good in myself now- 1 week post op.

Mine was also the clots. I would get clots so big that they would literally stop the flow and it would in turn cause extreme cramping. I remember one time specifically...I woke at 1am and sat on the toilet (seemed to help by not having presure pushing back), curled up in the fetal position in the recliner, sat in a warm bath, back on the throne, and back into the tub, finally I gave up and just curled up in the recliner and cried and then had to call into work in the morning since I was still in pain and running on no sleep. The clot finally passed at around 3pm that afternoon. The pain is also something I am glad that is gone...I swear I had something evil in me stabbing me from the inside out. We would be walking through the store and at any given moment I would be stopped, holding my stomach with my legs crossed because it felt like someone/thing was trying to make its way out with a knife. I am SO!! glad I don't have to deal with any those any longer.

Oooh Dancn Drgon, that is bad. I had pain, cramps so bad sometimes I could not stand straight. Stress incontinence. Heavy periods. I went out and bought white panties. I have not had them in years as they would just get stained, so only wore black.

I would say the pain and migraines. I can't wait to be rid of it. No more lying around crying during my period.

The moodiness, the back pain that made me feel as though I was being sawed in half they were nothing compaired to the first 3-4 days of every period. My uterus had developed deep pockets and in order to shed that lining I had to have contractions. It was miserable! Not to mention the cysts two weeks following every period, and the endo.

I was fortunate not to have pain. The worst part was the two weeks leading up to that time of the month. I would swell so badly that I didn't want to leave the house. I would be extremely fatigued and unable to fit into my clothes. The pressure on my bladder was very uncomfortable yet painless. I began leaking urine during the last couple of months prior to surgery. I would get a left side backache. I couldn't stand too long without my back hurting. I was glad when my period started because I needed relief from the swelling. The first two days of my period were very heavy but that became a non-issue compared to the swelling. I never thought I would look forward to my period. I hated the constant "changing of the guard" but that was nothing compared to the extreme discomfort from the swelling. The week after my period was heaven to me. I looked forward to that one week of heaven. Now, I have that one week of heaven every week.

I was fortunate growing up that I did not have the sore chest, mood swings, heavy bleeding or cramps. That all came within the past year and it progressively got worse with each month. I saw my gyn yesterday for my pre-op session and got my questions answered. I am suppose to have my period this week, but after last month's period I asked to be put on the pill to avoid this last one. I am trying my darndest to fight Mother Nature, but last night I was in so much pain that I got up in the middle of the night, laid down on the living room floor, and wrapped the heating pad around me. My husband asked if there was anything he could do for me... I said yes, "kill me"
I so cannot wait until next week!!!
