Okay, I am only 2 weeks away from my first gyno appt. For the past 40 days I've had pretty much constant 7/24 cramps, lower back pain, other pms you name it symptoms. Can't take the bcp anymore. Estrogen causes me to bleed. Prior to my last period I bled for just over 3 months, mostly light, but then bled very heavily for about 10 days. No blood now for about a month, but the cramps..........................So I'm now living on 3 ponstan (anti-inflammatory), extra strength advil and a B50 and multi every day. I know I'm within eyesight of my doc's appt. but I'm just so darned miserable. Of course through all this I have to work and I travel out of country quite regularly.
So here's my question. I have no idea what the gyno will say or do but I'm so so so tempted to beg for a hysterectomy. Never gonna have more kids (I'm 46) and I just can't seem to function anymore. I know a hysterectomy will end my periods, but will it end the cramps and back pain. I can live with hot flashes. I'm really worried I'm going to lose my job over this and I just can't let that happen.
Thanks for letting me vent. It's really been a bad bad bad day. I guess this is just part of my big cry.
