well for a few weeks now my health has been dramatically improving!!!!!!!!!!!!!! about time too. I think my problems were diet orientated. I did have a few weeks of increased meds for pain etc... then i stopped without asking my doc, still fine, then i stopped fluoxetine yesterday and i am still fine, 1 more pill to go and i am med free. Still have the odd pain but nothing that can't be handled. I am so excited. Swelling has went down, and i am concentrating on what i digest. I have yet to see the dietician. the appt is the 4th sept, but i am doing so well on my own, but the appt can only help more. I have noticed that the more regimented and strict with eating the better i am. As long as i dont go over 4 hours without food I am great, BM's have not increased but the pain has gone. What do you guys think.?
I am able to do things again, been decorating for weeks, housework playing with the kids, being a proper wife, which feels fab, was beginning to feel like we were the best of friends and nothing more, pain and swelling always got in the way of our love life!!!! NOT ANYMORE woohoo. I feel like I am free. Finally, and i want to scream and shout and sing from the rooftops and let everyone know that after nearly 29 years I am finally getting better.
Am i counting my chicks far too early. It has been over a month now, and everyone notices a difference in how i am looking and how energetic i am becoming. Consultant also said that there is no physical reason why i can't have my final child. My husband and i are keen to start as soon as, but just giving my health a wee bit longer to make sure.
I know that everyone here is suffering, but if i can even give one person a little bit of hope that things will get better then i have done the right thing in putting up this post. Before i seen no way out, no end to the pain, no end to the swelling and no happy bubbly life full of energy. Now things are changing for me, and i hope that others will read my story and see it as a positive. I thought i would never ever be happy, , and it has been a long and painful 29 years. But with eveyone's support at home and my new found family on this forum, has all been a huge help to me. It gave me a confidence boost when i was feeling so low, it gave me hope when i had none left. So thank you everyone. I truly am greatful to all kind words and support offered to me.
But unfortunatly healing well will not be loosing me. I have grown to love this site and the friends i have made so quickly, so i will still be popping on each day to see how each and every one of you are
