My surgery is in 2 weeks and I am praying its just adeno like my doctor thinks. Thank you to all of you....its so nice not to be alone. I feel none of my friends truly get it and I am kind of freaking out with worry.
I'm glad I was able to be of some comfort to you by sharing my symptoms. I'll be anxious to hear that you are feeling better after your surgery and that it was "simply" adenomyosis.

Your friends probably don't understand. I barely paid any attention to my sister in law when she had her hysterectomy. (hangs head in shame) I had no idea what she was feeling or how scared she may be.

Thankfully we have this site that we can share with people from all over who are experiencing very similar things at just about the same time. I think technology is great. ((hugs))

I have found some of my best friends online. I think that it is easier to open up online than it is in person. It somehow feels safer.

I just wish that this site allowed everyone to have avatars without having to pay so much to join. It is so much easier to remember who you are talking to if you can put a face or some other image with a username.

We should "befriend" each other on here. I think with a site this large it wold be helpful in keeping up with each other.

It is helpful. I still want everyone at home to act like it's a big deal but I'm glad it's just another day at the office for the surgeons.

Ouch!

I think if anyone wouldn't get it, it would be a husband. They just aren't wired, (or plumbed) the way we are.

I hope you can keep your pain under control while you wait.

My doctor just put me on BC pills. I haven't tried to take those in years. (My husband had a V 11 years ago) They always seem to set off an ugly round of depression with me. I am giving them a try to try to manage the pain and heavy periods but I'm not convinced it's doing me more good than harm.

I don't have a surgery date set, but I see a specialist on May 17. Let's do try to keep in touch. I'll "befriend" you on here.

(I'm assuming you were talking to me with the questions. If not, color me embarrassed and accept my hand of friendship anyway.)

Hi Dormouse,

I did mean you and also anyone else interested! We all seem to be facing the same issues.

I had my pre-op appt with my regular doctor today...all is good except the lymph nodes in my neck are up. He is going to send me for an ultrasound and blood work....just because I need something else to worry about!! LOL!! Take Care!!
