It has been over a month since I have left a blog. I have found out that I will have to have a hysterectomy done. But I have to have 2 shots first that will put me into a false menopause to make sure that's where my pain is coming from. Had some blood work done found out the results yesterday. seems i'm positive for a factor 5; which has to do with , veins thrombosis. deep vein blood. I will have problems with blood clots during my life if I lay around too much and they are worried about it with surgery coming up. it also effects to thin blood as well, kinda complicated if you ask me. seems the gene runs on my dad's side of the family. it's what my father, his father and some of his brothers died from. I figured I would have the same problems as my father, but now I know for sure and can take steps in prevention. I know I am facing surgery in about 3 months time, that's why all the shots will be done and they should figure out everything they need to know. but I want to lose as much weight as possible before hand, I know how hard it is to recover from this kind of surgery, I already had 3 c-sections in my early 20's. and I'm not looking forward to the recovery time nor the pain. But I can no longer put up with the pain from a monthly cycle either. they say my uterus is the same size as a woman in her 2nd trimester. that explains lot of the abdominal sensations I have been having. they call it Endometriosis.
have been doing really great on walking and biking, was surprised to see they also have a calorie burning for pushing a lawn mower, so that was cool. I had gained back the original 4lbs I lost., but since I have started over again I am back down those 4 lbs. I just need to keep focused on what I need to do for my own health and what lay's ahead for the next 3 or 4 months.
