So ladies lets look at the really scary part of this whole thing. Look at how many of us are having the same problems. I really feel there is a link between these growths and our chemically altered food. I could understand older woman having tumors but you that are having these turning up are young. Young meaning your body should be at it's prime of growth and repair or closer to prime. I think prime is when we are in our teens early 20's. Anyways, my question is what has changed in our world that is causing this? I cringe every time I see my daughter with one of those energy drinks and I will be happy to share what I tell her. It is poison in a can and that stuff will kill you. How do I get her to believe me? What will it take before we look at what we put in our bodies and stop believing this crap that it is OK because it is FDA or government approved. Government approved translates to "The government approves they can market and sell anything that brings big profits to big corporations and stock holders so they can pay taxes or line the pockets of people in washington". How do we wake our children up to this fact and save them from what awaits them health wise? People are making big money off things your mother told you and we have to pass this information down to our children. sit up straight and eat your fruits and veggies. I am writing a book and plan to market it for 4.95 because I want to get the word out not make big profits. The book is about 20 pages and I feel it includes the items you need to keep your thinking on the right track. I'm not here to sell a book I am here to ask what is going on and how can we prevent some of these things. With the cost of gas going up I expect to see the local farmers market to be busy. Any one in the food shipping industry please help me out. How many chemicals get put onto our food so it doesn't spoil during shipping and are they 100% safe? I find this all very interesting. Thanks Lynn

I had a scare about a year and a Ĺ ago with this same thing. Fortunately they did not find a tumor, the change in Birth Control worked for me. I know how scared I was and you are going through so much more! I wish you luck, take it easy and donít be so hard on yourself. After your surgery is over and you are healed you can get back on track.

I can only imagine the frustration you've been going through. When your young like that it's assumed the pain your having is IBS. I'm so happy to hear you have found a possible problem. Look towards the positive. It's easy to find the negative, but there are so many positives. I'm 33 and I had a hysterectomy last year for uterine polyps. It was always assumed my pain was dietary. Mind you looking at my previous diet, no wonder. Concentrate on your health. Remember to eat foods that aid in healing like protein. You'll be up and running before you know it. emoticon

Life is great!! Above all I love God & my family.

I am sorry you have been going through a tough time...I had a similar situation 15 years ago...as trying as it may be at times, focus on the positive NOT the negative and take one thing at one time. It is a good thing you are going to the right doctors now. Don't worry about gaining weight in the future...focus on gaining your health now. No matter what, you will get through this and be a better person for it! I'm here if you need support. Lucille:-))

A friend of mine just went through this! She had the tumor removed about 3 weeks agao and is doing great. Hers weighed in at over 30 pounds and it still took doctors months to figure out what was wrong. Hang in there and let us know how you are doing. emoticon

Be the change you wish to see in the world. ~Gandhi

So glad to hear that they found the source of your pain. If you eat healthy foods, you might lose some weight, if not, that task will have to wait until you are well enough to take it on. Just focus on taking care of yourself so you can get better quickly.

You came to the right place! I know it will be hard, but right now you have to focus on being grateful they have found this and can work to fix it. The rest of your energy needs to go into staying HEALTHY. Eventually that may mean the weight loss you are after, but for now if you can work on adding those positives to your life and putting healthy things into your body you will be better equipped to deal with the rest in a very short while. You have been through A LOT and nobody should have to deal with that much, but at some point or another we are all challenged. This is your challenge right now. Take it and make the most of it. Find new friends (even Spark buddies!) and invest energy into healthy foods since exercise isn't going to be as much of an option as you would like. Don't hesitate to stop in here anytime you need a boost or emoticon .

Hello everyone!! So, I am back on here after being gone for a while and I sure do need the support, positive support. I have had a rough month that I do not want to live through again. I have been depressed at so many factors.

Let me explain a little....I have been going to the doctors for years because of abdominal/pelvic pain and they kept saying that I have IBS. Well, I thought that was not true so I changed all of my doctors. Went to a new gastroenterologist and he put me on a low carb diet and laxatives to help with the daily pains. Well, it did help a little but then before ďAunt FloĒ comes to visit I was having extreme pains which I ended up going to the ER for because Ibuprofen 800mg was not even working.

Finally I had my OBGYN appointment and she change the birth control pill that I was on and she felt something that ordered an internal ultrasound. They ended up finding a tumor. I have an appointment on March 26 to have surgery and have the tumor removed and hopefully it will not be through my uterus because I really donít want a hysterectomy. I still think I want to have children, so that is another stress factor.

So, on top of all that my new pills have caused me to gain weight and that in turn has made me come down on myself. I am always hungry and it is driving me nuts. Plus, the doctor said that I cannot start exercising until 3-4 months after my surgery...I am going to be huge!

I just really donít know what to do. My fitness partner I cannot be around because she is very negative and I need to get away from it. I really just want this to be a new start to a better life. They found this tumor which may be causing all of the pains that I was having and that is great, but I need my mental and physical life to start coming back to me!

Thank you all for reading this!!
