HELLO I'M NEW TO THE BOARD, MY NAME IS TAMMY AND I'M 34. I'VE HAD LUPUS FOR 14 YRS. I'VE BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS WITH IRREGULAR PERIODS AND THE DRS DIDN'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT BECAUSE OF MY MEDS (PREDNISONE). I FINALLY FOUND A GYNE THAT WOULD HELP AND SHE DID A ULTRASOUND THAT SHOWED CYST ON MY OVARIES AND FIBROIDS THROUGHOUT MY OTHER ORGANS. SHE THEN DECIDED TO DO A D&C AND A LAPROSCOPY, WHICH THEN SHOWED NO CYST, BUT ENDOMETRIOSIS, NOT SURE ABOUT THE FIBROIDS AS I JUST HAD THE SURGERY AND HAVEN'T GOTTEN ALL THE RESULTS BACK YET. I GO NEXT WEEK. I KNOW SHE TALKED ABOUT HORMONE THERAPY, LUPRON AND ALSO A HYSTERECTOMY. FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND I THOUGHT HORMONES PLAYED A BIG PART ON FLARES AND SHOULDN'T BE TAKING THEM. ALSO I HAVEN'T HEARD TO MANY GOOD THINGS ABOUT LUPRON. I HAVE ENOUGH PROBS AND TAKING IT WOULD JUST CAUSE MORE, I THINK. I NEED SOME HELP AND SOME ADVICE ON THIS SUBJECT, SO WHEN I GO TO THE DOCS NEXT WEEK I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. I'M SCARED TO TAKE HORMONES, BECAUSE OF MY LUPUS. AND I'M KIND OF YOUNG, I FEEL TO HAVE A HYSTERECTOMY. I DO HAVE 3 CHILDREN AND DO NOT PLAN ON HAVING ANYMORE. I JUST NEED SOME HELP AT TRYING TO DECIDE THE BEST WAY TO GO. IF ANYONE OUT THERE CAN HELP OR OFFER ANY ADVICE ON WHERE I CAN FIND INFO REGARDING MY ISSUES, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU. TAMMY
