Hey friends! I’m so happy you checked in to read about my hysterectomy and how it all went! I am one month post-op, and feeling pretty good. It’s amazing how one day your body is in so much pain and feels like your stomach is going to rip open, to a week or so later and you feel like you can run a mile! Well…maybe not RUN a mile, but walk it! So like I said, I am one month post-op, and the surgery went very well. There were no complications and the doctor said everything went very smooth.

So as many of you know, I have been on this drug called LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) for about 8 months now. The LDN seems to be helping with the pain, but there are other issues going on with my body. I was hoping the LDN would help, but it just hasn’t. [Read more…]
Hey friends! So I have been on LDN for about six months now, and I wanted to update you all on how it’s going! When I had my consult, my doctor told me I could email her anytime, and I’m so very thankful for that because I emailed her quite a bit that first month! After emailing back and forth, and adjusting my dosage, I have now consistently been on 3mg of LDN at night and 3mg of LDN in the morning. [Read more…]

It takes you to another page where you can schedule a consult and it lists all the prices. Once you make a selection, you can click “Next” and then you enter your information and payment information. Then, you select a date and time when you want your appointment to take place. [Read more…]
For the last six months I didn’t know what to do. Should we keep trying to have another baby or get a hysterectomy and finally let the misery be over. We didn’t have bunch of money lying around to try and figure out why I wasn’t getting pregnant, and if I got a hysterectomy my insurance wouldn’t cover the procedure. I felt like I was in a lose-lose situation. [Read more…]
My pregnancy with my daughter was very similar to my pregnancy with my son. I was in constant, excruciating pain the WHOLE time! However, I didn’t have any cysts this go round! I continued taking Tylenol to help manage my pain, and I gave birth to a healthy, gorgeous baby girl July 9th, 2014.

Now, I would like to share with you my experience with pregnancy and endometriosis, what happened after I had my son, and a little surprise we encountered six months after my son was born!
