Just an update for those who care...

Posted 05-23-2014 08:31 PM by k742

So, for those keeping track of my medical saga...here's an update. Chiropractor has been helping with my back and hip pain; Wednesday I go in for my evaluation.

Yesterday we finally got to meet with the NaPro doc - that was pretty great, actually. He took a thorough history of what's been going on, did a quick pelvic exam to make sure nothing obvious was going on...based on my issues he thinks it could be progesterone deficiency, PCOS, endometriosis, or any combination of those things....

Excitement and fear, all at once.

Posted 04-10-2014 03:40 PM by k742

My lovely new doctor prescribed some meds for the pain I’ve been dealing with more frequently. I’m equal parts excited and terrified at the thought of pain meds. Any others have this fear?

I’ve already told myself to save the Vicodin for emergencies only - the other he gave me was ketorolac (Toradol)…this one comes with some potentially nasty side effects, but I think I’ll be OK (good thing I bought the whole milk this time instead of the low-fat junk!). I’ve also made a deal with...

Endometriosis, Rectal Bleeding, and 2nd Opinions!

Hello, and welcome to my first ever blog!

I decided to write this blog for two reasons. First, in the hope that my symptoms and experiences may be of help to other women. Second, To reinforce to everyone, men and women, to get a second opinion if they're not happy with the first.
