my poor daughter!

My 12 year old daughter and I spent the night in ER last night. Why? Because the doc thought she had a twisted ovarian cyst! She has been soooo freaked that she would have my female problems and then all of a sudden she goes from being completely fine to on the floor doubled in pain! 2 midol, a warm bath, ice pack nothing helped. They did a US (abdominaL I wouldn't let them do a Vag US on a 12 yo virgin) and all looked ok but her pain isn't any better this am. The ER doc says "well maybe this is what your menstral cramps are going to be like for a while try not to worry about it" MEN! I think if they had the slightest clue what it is like when things are "bad" they would be screaming for narcotics! So now lil miss is terrified that she is going to end up just like dear ol mom! It breaks my heart! This poor child started menstruating at the ripe old age of 7 (1 week after she got out of first grade) and we went through all the peds endo appointments etc and decided that we didn't want her traumatized so opted NOT to stop them. NOW I am seriously considering talking to the dr about putting her on the pill to help it not be so bad. Any thoughts? My DH and I are talking about taking her to the Dr. that is doing my SAH.

So sorry to hear about the problem with your daughter! I think you should take her to your gyno. An ER Dr. wants to get patients out of the ER, your gyno will already know the family history and be able to ehlp and offer good suggestions.

Good luck, and remember that if the symptoms go away as her cycle moves and you decide not to take her in, this will happen agian and again if it is related to her periods. Being a kid is hard enough....

OMG your poor daughter,no one should have to go through that...

My youngest DD is now 23 ,she didn't start her period until she was almost 18..ever since she has had problems...Finally went to a OBGYN and found she had a cyst....Her Dr. put her on birth control..It had been better ,but just the last couple of months she has had some bleeding in between so of course now she will be on something stronger...

My sisters youngest also was just like yours and she did have her put on the pill and it did help...

Such a hard thing to decide when they are that young... I would take her to your Dr. tho and see what he has to say...

Hope you can figure out something soon for her....let us all know her how things are going.....

my poor daughter!

thanks ladies. I'm not sure if this is more HER concerns for MY surgery or My concerns for HER? I think both. She kept bringing up my SAH in the ER.

OMG - I can completely relate to your daughter, and I really hope you take her to see your gyn. I didn't start my periods at 7, but starting at age 12, they were so painful I'd break out into a cold sweat. My mother was not at all as caring as you are, so not much was done. I'm so glad you're looking into what can be done now.

Sending good thoughts and prayers you and your daughter's way.

I'm sure your daughter is worried about you SAH and she has seen all you have gone through !!!

She's lucky to have such a caring Mom, as HiTechGal stated not all moms are as concerned..

my poor daughter!

I agree to take your daughter into your gyn, who knows your history and is a specialist. It is "bad enough" to have started her period at such a young age (I was 10), but I would imagine her concern and fears for your pending surgery has added to her own stress.

At one point my DD, who is almost 30, said "will I end up needing a hyster too?" She only has one tube because she had a tubal pregnancy and it ruptured, but she had had trouble with her periods early on.

s for you and your DD.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that your daughter is in pain. It is hard enough to deal with these problems as an adult. I can't imagine how difficult it must be at 12. I do hope that your doctor can find a way to help her.

I have a daughter the same age, although she has not started her period yet. I worry every day about what her experience is going to be like. One of my biggest concerns about having the hysterectomy now was that I did not know what kind of effect this would have on my daughter. I hate to have her see "the end" before she has even experienced "the beginning." I know she must be getting a negative picture.

Are there any adolescent gynecologists in your area? They might be able to give you some answers as relate to a young girl.

I'm sending a to both of you! It is a lot to deal with at once and I hope that everything works out for the best.
