View Full Version : Second period in 18 days
08-05-2008, 11:24 AM
and not feeling good at all. I've been crying since it started late this afternoon. I have pm's to answer, but can't, I feel too bad, just wanted people to know where I was. I can't wait to have this hysterectomy. I've decided to have everything out in this one shot. I can't imagine having to have another surgery for my ovaries down the line. Obviously something is wrong with them now or I wouldn't be ovulating so often. They're getting closer and closer together which means I feel like hell a lot more often as well. I'll be around when this CURSE is gone. I hope to have a date for my surgery tomorrow.
Hugs to all, Sandy
Oh, Sandy. That sounds absolutely miserable. Periods are bad enough every 4 weeks. You're hardly getting a break. :( I hope the hysterectomy brings you tons and tons of relief. :kissing:

I am so sorry you have to go through all of this. The waiting is the hardest. You will want to jump for joy when this is all over. Hope all goes smoothly with your surgery. Take care-

I have a date, Sept 12....no time yet, they are sending me the rest of the info in the mail. I'm bleeding so bad that if this keeps up I'm going to have to go to the doctor. I feel terrible, have a migraine and haven't had one of those in a long time. Feel dizzy, just rough. I'm passing clots and bleeding so much that a super plus tampon is used up in about 2 hours. Sorry, know thats a lot of info but we're mostly all girls here and we all understand.
I haven't had the energy to eat at all today so Tom just went to my favorite restaurant to get take out for me. He's worried and so am I. I haven't felt this bad in a long time.
I'm scared about the surgery, mostly because I know too much, but it's the fibro and the IC I'm most worried about.....but I need to take things one day at a time and deal with this bleeding thing now.
Thanks for the well wishes and replies. I've read them all. It's hard to sit here long, I just feel so weak and tired/sleepy.

That time will fly by. I hope the surgery helps you.

Sandy, have you had a blood count done recently? All that bleeding is hard on our bodies, not just gross to deal with. I know we can't take most vitamins but they are more essential for you now. My G.I. tract has never been able to tolerate high dose iron, but smaller doses with food were ok. Sept. 12th will be here before you know it but I think if you try to increase your reserve your recovery will be easier.

I have a pre op appt with they gyno on the 3rd of Sept and hope he will address the possible anemia then. I have bled so much I don't know how I couldn't be anemic.
Donna, I really hope the time flies. This is miserable. I do feel somewhat better today, but still bleeding pretty heavy and real weak. Did manage to fix the hair and put on makeup just to make myself feel better, sure can't go anywhere because just making chicken salad wears me out.
Thanks for the support. Hopefully this will end my monthly gripe session on here. :(

just rest! before you know it your surgery day will be here, until then rest as much as possible. are you taking any iron? it might be a good idea to look into taking some it might help you have more energy. keep off your feet as much as possible. let us know how you are doing!
