I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Blogging in bed

Blogging in bed tonight from my crackberry. I've had shoulder and diaphragm (right side) pain going on all weekend. It's hard to get comfy to sleep. The only relief I get is laying on the painful side. Unfortunately that aggravates my shoulder too.

Before when I was having these pains, I thought maybe it was all from my shoulder. But, my PT didn't seem to think so. Then my thoughts wandered to my endo. They looked for diaphragm involvement in my last surgery. I don't necessarily think its that, but, I do think it has to do with that endometrioma on my right ovary and inflammation responses from it! I've also been kinda nauseated recently. Welcome back old "friends"?

Before I order my meds, I'm calling to request an ultrasound. Just to be sure that this thing isn't already getting out of hand. Think my curiosity should warrant that?!

surgery with the right doctor can help so much, and they can address diaphragmatic / bowel etc..

an endo expert will know where to look and what stages, forms to look for

also, you can use napro / nfp technology to chart, test hormones and supplement with progesterone if needed






erc.activboard.com/ google it if it doesn't come up
