So glad you posted here so we can talk at length and be on topic...according to what I've read, the only side effect is a thinning of the blood, for you and all the endo. which is fibrous type tissue along with scar tissue you've had in the past from removal of endometriosis I'd get the higher one at the better price.
If you look at the other posts they end up using the higher dose.
Your in so much pain and this acts as a pain blocker in the nerves. It also prevents swelling and inflammation. I would think you'd need the higher dose to make a difference with what is going on. If it comes in a pill form you may be able to cut it, but make sure you take it on an empty stomach so it works in the whole system of the body and not just as a digestive aid.
When women make endometriosis they also are making a lot of extra estrogens that produce this fibrin in the system, that is one of the main things you need it for, this 'enzyme' eats it up, it looks for it in the body and dissolves it.
(note:It even is suppose to work on cancerous cells because those cells have fibrin on them too, it improves the survival rate of cancers.)
At first I think it would most likely be helping with the pain and inflammation for you, but once the endo. is removed and you continue to take even at a lower dose you can prevent the endo. from returning. This is the best chance for you to have that baby you so desire. I really want this for you too, because you want it soooo bad! It's said that this is even safe for pregnant women to take and doesn't interfere with other prescription medications, only thing to watch out for is if your taking a blood thinner or your a bleeder and have a disorder of this type with the blood.
Inflammation is one of the main problems with any kidney disorder so I would think this would really be a major benefit for you to take.
The other issue you have is your back pain, again, this helps with pain, swellings around the nerves, injuries and scar tissues that put pressure on those nerves. It even works with people who have Fibromyalgia because it improves the blood flow, reduces the swelling and works on the pain.
It helps with hay fever allergic reactions, I know you have food allergies mostly right now, but, it would be interesting to see if it helped those problems for you too. I would think it would at least help some since an allergic reaction causes inflammation. Wouldn't you think?
The major thing to remember is to stop taking it a full two days before surgery and two days after the surgery.
The procedure that your having done soon...
I think you said July 22 and the 25, is that an invasive surgery? They won't be cutting anything that day will they? Aren't they just basically looking?
Another thought is once they get in there and look it might be that they decide to take you right in and do the procedure the next day. Usually they HAVE to wait at least a day if you've had anything to eat.
What I would do is the day before the 25th stop taking this enzyme, this way it would be two days of being off if they do the procedure right away after the MRI.
I hope this has helped you determine what you want to do right now.
The decision is your to make.
No one should make it for you.
Waiting to hear your thoughts, Diana
