Endometriosis!!

Spent the day in the emergency department today because I woke up with the most crazy pain, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness and pass-outedness ever. I’ve never felt that way in my life. My husband had already left for work. I made it from the toilet to the floor to get my phone and call him and my doctor. My doctor thought I might be dehydrated and maybe having an appendix  or diverticulitis issue…. 10 hrs, a CT scan, the longest internal ultrasound and a pelvic exam later, the ER obgyn (who conferred with my fertility specialist) feels it is related to endometriosis and the fact that I’m waiting for my period to start. !!!!! Suddenly since this infertility journey, I’m experiencing more pain than ever. Not encouraging. So frustrating.

As I lay in bed this morning I thought “what if we live life as if we are happy no matter if we have children or not?” Shortly after that, pain started.

I’m unsure I’m ready to broach that topic with my husband. I must though.

  1. Are they going to do a laparoscopy to clean out the endo?
    Sorry if I already asked you this, did you get your thyroid checked?
    I know what you are going through. I’m living through it. I’ve been in this season for 4 years. However, don’t give up. It will happen. I’m praying for you.

      1. Getting the laparoscopy will help with symptoms and help with chances in conceiving. Another woman in the WordPress world is about to get a lap. If it’s your first time getting a lap, you may want to check out her blog. I forget the name offhand. I’ll share the link in a different comment. How’s your pain now? I pray it is gone.

      2. The reason why I ask about the thyroid is that heavy periods are a symptom of low thyroid function. Getting the thyroid to function optimally is a tricky. It’s been something I’ve been working on for 2.5 years. They may say the thyroid is good; however, it may not be optimal for you. What was your most recent TSH, free T3, and free t4, may I ask? Someone once told me that a thyroid that isn’t optimal for an individual is an effective form of birth control. Sorry if I’m being a broken record if I’ve already written this in the comment section. I want you to conceive straightaway!

    1. Thanks Sam 🙂 I have so much to update ….and have been procrastinating. Long story short though … I’m doing better. Still recouping. I just read your post about the third iui and I’m inspired by your attitude and cheering wildly for you! 💖
