Re: Always in pain

I thought I was crazy. By the time I finally got health insurance to see the dr. I had been dealing with symptoms so long I wasn't even sure what they were. I recall thinking after my consult wow the questions he was asking I didn't even realize I had them. Then I thought maybe it was just in me head and now that I have heard what the symptoms are maybe I was having them only because I had heard him say. Youknow what I mean? He asked about loose stool I said yes sometimes but I think it's because maybe I drank too much wine the night before. Nope. Started noticing the heavy bowling ball feeling. Almost constant lower back pain, just thought I had a bad back or slept wrong or bent too much. Bloated, gas thought well I'm 39 now maybe just getting fat. I mean the gas was so bad sometimes after I ate, when I first started my new job my boss heard it and thought I was just hungry. I agreed with him knowing it wasn't because I had just ate.

Anyway I found this site and realized wow these really are symptoms, I am not crazy.

The months before the surgery were really really bad. Nov. I was moving out had a place lined up to rent to move in two days. Ended up staying, but then again right before my surgery hubby left. I was insane. Sick,no one understood, I really didn't fully comprehend. I was in pain for so long, so grumpy, everyone in my family was tired of me. I was tired of me. Then issues with the kids, school, boys, etc.... I told my husband I hoped I never woke up from the surgery. And I was in the place mentally that I really did mean it. I had no pain meds prior like I see some of you had. I was controlling my pain and bleeding with ibuprophen, I would take 7 pills twice a day for 2 to 3 days when bleeding. It did slow it way down almost to a stop for a long time, but quit working towards the end.

So Feb. I bleed for almost 3 weeks. I had a trip to my best friend house planned to go shopping for daughters prom dress. Had to cancel, stayed in bed all weekend. Daughter was very upset and so was I and best friend. But it did re-assure me that I was so ready for the surgery.

Here I am 10 days post op. Pain has been nothing like I expected. I really have been blessed. Hospital was great. The hardest part for me now is I feel so much better it is hard to stay down. I do a little too much and my body lets me know. I want to work out, get rid of this gut. But that days is coming soon.

Good luck ladies!!! I pray your experience is as good as mine has been!!

Re: Always in pain

Ace37 - I will definitely post an update re:my surgery as soon as I know. My doctor is smart, compassionate, and has been such an advocate for me and my health - she's the latest in a long line of gynos that were, in my opinion, sub-par in comparison. Yet another reason I am now ready to roll with this.

Good luck to you in May!

Ok, just got of the phone. Surgery has been scheduled for April 26th. It is so strange that now that I'm scheduled, I feel a lot calmer. Makes me feel like I'm doing the right thing.

Re: Always in pain

I was just thinking about all this again today. Last night lower right pain was stabbing in back, night sweats and chils and I thought for sure it was another UTI, went to Urgent Care today, its not, just pelvic pain related to the Ovary and impending menses. I am so DONE, the next 2 weeks cant go quick enough for me.

Good Luck to you all with the upcoming surgery dates.

Re: Always in pain

Well, while we're on the subject of symptoms . . . not sure if my insomnia is due to the fibroids and cysts, or because since they took me off of birth control I am in going into menopause! Of course, once I wake up - I'm up for a while. Just took another natural sleeping pill. It's 2:00 am, so I guess I'll watch another episode of Antiques Roadshow.

Jaydee40 - I've never had any prior surgery or treatments. This will be my first.
