enodmetriosis saved my kidneys!

I have had the weirdest thing happen to me, which has accidentally helped to improve my stage 4 kidney disease! That is why I want to share this here. Please read this story and never end up like me, high blood pressure gave me 4 strokes, and sent me into kidney failure.

In fact, I have waited till today to even tell this story, although I have been dying to. First I had to check the whole thing out with my nephrologist, and he confirmed it, and was thrilled. If a doctor could turn a cartwheel in that white coat, he would have. My kidneys are stable, I don't have to come back for three months! I have come from seeing him every week.

This is how endometriosis saved my kidneys... and it was a roundablout thing, trust me.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis, and could only be treated for the pain, as any surgery (or even a laparoscopy) was impossible due to my major health concerns, kidneys included. The pain was excruciating and relentless for 6 months straight. While I was being treated for the pain, I noticed my BP was way to low, so at my dr.s advise I began to drop BP meds. I was taking 6 at the time. I had literally deadly BP's until now. My BP became like that of a vegetarian athelete!

So in the weirdest way, endometriosis saved my kidneys!

My message is to find and maintain your blood pressure at a health rate, no matter what it takes, and I do all the lifestyle things too.

Im 50 years old and not giving up!
