Symptoms: I had really heavy periods as a teenager. Missed school every month and passed out regularly on my period, but it all improved on birth control pills. And it wasnt until just before the Crohns moved in that the bleeding got heavy again. So my gyno had me stay on the same birth control pill, just skip thru the packs so I would only have my period every 3 months, kinda like seasonique. And it worked so everythings been fine.
Just I guess it really hasnt been fine.
For the past three years, the Crohns symptoms are worse during the period, sex has been awkward because the cramping is obscene during and after, I also have more back pain than can be explained by the major back surgery, constant bloating, omygoodness I wish I had not let this go for so many years. I honestly thought it had something to do with crohns, the back surgery, my fiance's size... I didnt think until this past month that it could be anything wrong with my lady parts.
We ruled out that this is the Crohns, I was scoped 2 wks ago and everything actually looks pretty good!
So my journey began last week with the gyno for finding out if its endometriosis. Those conditions include Crohns, Crohns arthritis, bursitis in both hips, Avascular Necrosis in both hips, neuromas in foot and back, and finally a Hemangiopericytoma tumor that was wrapped around my spine. I still cant believe something is wrong with my lady parts ontop of everything.
What kind of freak has these conditions in one body.
The chronic pain is really taking its toll emotionally and physically. I cant do the hormone treatments I'm reading about
, the Lupron. My weight gain is already too much, I feel huge. I've gained 40lbs in the past few years, thank goodness I was underweight at the time due to crohns but its still bad. Sometimes I kind of wish the crohns would go active to lose some of this weight, messed up right!?
But that means the medication wont be digested and the pain will get 100times worse which I cant take any more pain, I cant take the pain I currently have anymore.
And mood swings, that comes with the chronic pain territory!!! I def cant take more of those, and my fiance would be sweet about
it but its just not something I can put him thru more of, I wont do it.
My fiance has gone thru enough, our relationship has endured so much, I just pray that we can continue thru this one. Have any of you had nightmarish results in your relationship from a positive diagnosis leading to a partial or full hysterectomy? I dont know what to do about
this, I mean there really isnt anything I can do, which by far has to be one of the worst parts about
being sick all the time.
Sometimes its just hard to fight and continue to stay strong for everyone, sometimes I just need to be weak and I used to feel like this is one place I wasnt alone when I struggled so badly with Crohns, so I hope that some of you out there respond to this because it would mean a lot to me.
