I've posted this thread in the FMS forum but am also interested in those who have CFS what their thoughts are...
I've been perimenopausal since I was 35 (41 now) and I feel like I have symptoms at least 3 wks of the month and they seem to be getting worse So, after not having a period for 3mths, (but spotting all that time), I decided to have u'sound and was then referred to a ob/gyn. I had seen him 3yrs prior and an IUD had helped with some of the symptoms (mainly the heavy bleeding). So anyways, told him in last few years I'd been really unwell with CFS and FM and he goes on to tell me that they are only labels Dr's put on things when they can't figure out what's wrong with a person I'm sorry to say that I didn't disagree with him or argue his thoughts because I was at the stage where I would burst in to tears if I tried to advocate and set him right. I'm hoping next time I see him I'm much stronger and can 'advise' him on how his thoughts about CFS and FM are wrong!!!!!
so anyways, I thought he would suggest a hysterectomy however he won't as he believes with hormone therapy and diet (weight loss - am not obese though just a bit over) and exercise then things will improve. I've had a history of evil hormones and i'm beginning to thing that if I do have a hysterectomy then some parts of my life will improve.
So I ask the question: Has anyone had a hysterectomy post Fibro/CFS diagnosis and how has it affected you? Has it improved your health or made things worse??
Thanks everyone for reading this....
