My Health and Exercise

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I am just about at the end of my rope as far as dealing with this lower pelvic pain I have had it for a year now. I love to run and do aerobic exercise but I have had to bring that down to just walking. I have gained weight over this past year so that is another frustrating issue.
In the past year I have had the Nova-Sure Endometrial Ablation and a D&C trying to solve the problem of pain and heavy/irregular menstrual cycle. After going to the doctor today in tears, I have scheduled another D&C and a Hysterectomy.
My doctor asked me to give her the chance to remove a polyp and make sure it is not cancerous before having the Hysterectomy. I reluctantly agreed.
My procedures are scheduled for Feb.7th and March 11 so hopefully in April I can go from walking to running and back to aerobics classes and weight training.
One I get the ok from my doctor there will be no stopping me. I WILL get back in shape!
My goal will be to get back into running 5k's, 10k's, and build up to a once again to 1/2 marathon which I did a few years ago.

    Ma'am, our stories are so similar, except that I am in my 30's and my doctor says, "you shouldn't be having these symptoms until menopause". I've had lower pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, ovarian cysts, blood clots, ER visits for an ovary torsion, surgery & D&C plus removal of a polyp and also now I have a fibroid growing in my uterus.

I'm glad we crossed paths. In conjunction with your Doctor's suggestions and under their care, might I humbly suggest--for your consideration--giving up dairy products? I have found much noticeable improvement in lowering my pelvic pain despite my diagnoses (which they said was endometriosis and adenomyosis) by reducing dairy and just recently strictly cutting it all out.

The hormones from the cow that are present in milk, cheese, yogurt, etc, may actually be causing a disruption in OUR hormones and uterine functioning. Think about it, a cow's milk is made with hormones in the heifer that provide nutrition for her calf. So if we consume another animals is our own female functioning affected? Girls are getting their periods sooner...what about us older ladies?

In addition even when eating meats, I try to consume local, organic, grass-fed if possible, IF money allows. Hormones in factory-farmed meats are also contributing to negative affects on people.

Just a thought...let me know what you think about that.
