Hey Baker,

My periods were so bad....painful and I looked white as a ghost. 3 weeks out of each month....and one week of non-bleeding.

I get what you're saying. And I also understand where Cupcake is coming from. Docs up here were scheduling them willy nilly, as they wanted the big bucks for the procedure rather than just the tube tying thing.

I agree with you that your periods are just one more thing to have to contend with, when you already have a plate overflowing.

If your doc becomes open to the idea......please PLEASE research the obgyn you are sent to. Make sure they are aware of your issues....and have performed many successful hysterectomies prior to you.

My obgyn was fresh out of med school......lowest marks in the class.....and d@mn near killed me. In fact, she DID kill a couple babies, brain damaged a few others and perforated bowels of many other women. She has finally been stripped of her license to practice and has a class action lawsuit pending... I am one of over 60 women and children she butchered.

So...... I agree with you.....your periods are serving no purpose anymore. Just be careful! You know our life as lupies....strange things pop up outta the blue, no matter how simple the procedure.

Take care,

Bun

I know one ob/gyn who will never get near me. I had seen her for PCOS for awhile then she said my pcp could handle it. Fine no problem. Well a friend went to her for a hysterectomy and nearly killed her. She had perforated the bowel. All of the sudden she is no longer working at the hospital I use but I do know that she is still practicing in the area. I don't know if my friend ever sued her, but the hospital didn't waste any time getting rid of her. I think that this wasn't her first mistake but it was going to be her last in that hospital. Wonder if she came to the US and got a license to practice, because I believe she had gone to school in Canada.

My biggest problem is that I go 4-6 months without it. Then surprise. Just when I get my hopes up that it may be gone for good. With my luck I will have it until I'm 60. I have a feeling with my blood clotting issues my doctor won't be agreeable to surgery any time soon. She wasn't thrilled when I had my teeth pulled.

I don't think anything can surprise me anymore. I'll just add it to the list. I already have 5 AI diseases going, how many more can I add to that list. Rheumy was talking possible Fibro at my last appointment. Can't wait to see what she says in August.

Diane, menopause is so weird. All of a sudden it all just stops. I went through all the BS for over a year and then poof!

Bun, Nope not the same doc. To bad there has to be so many rotten doctors around.

Robin and Cake, I would love for it to just be gone. Right now my face is a lovely shade of red and some of the spots that originally sent me to a dermatologist are starting to reappear. Along with arthritis in my hands and feet. Tramadol is my friend at night.

Plus I am having trouble getting my teeth adjusted. My gums aren't healed yet. Some of that is because I grind my teeth and now I'm grinding on my upper gums, I can't find a mouth guard that will work.

There is a lot of stress right now, but hopefully it will be over in two weeks, then I can get some other family things done on my time, not the lawyers/courts time.

my period is so late this month (def not preggo) and I'm guessing it's a combo of the high doses of prednisone and the 15 lbs I've lost in the last few weeks from not being able to eat anymore. I'm a bag o bones now. Normally it's so heavy so this month i am actually feeling lucky.

Bun, so sorry to hear about the butcher :(

Diane I feel you pain hang in there. I have been swimming each night. It's the only exercise I can do with the RA and lupus. But I need help in and out of the pool. That part really sucks

I've lost a few pounds on my "NO TEETH DIET". (Not a recommend way to lose weight) But really haven't been hungry either because of this hot and humid weather. My Rheumy still won't be happy because I haven't started exercising regularly.

Had another adjustment done on my upper plate today and hopefully we will get it right soon. But I have no problem going places without my teeth. Also having a guard made to cover the lower teeth so when I grind my teeth at night I won't keep tearing up my gums because my upper plate is out and soaking.

how the HELL are we supposed to exercise regularly when:

we are:

photosensitive
adversely reacting to our meds
loopy from our meds
in pain (everywhere it seems)
itchy
losing our hair
losing our teeth
going deaf
can't breathe
sore backs, legs, arms, feet, hands, fingers
po.oping non-stop
nauseous, vomiting
migraines, headaches
dizzy, vertigo
weak, fainting
exhausted, fatigued

and just downright miserable some days??!!?!!??!?!??!?

(i'm sure I forgot some symptoms...let's blame brain fog)

sorry for the rant....but holy free-holies!!  swimming is a good low-impact thing.....however, if one doesn't have access to a shaded/indoor pool.....you have to swim at night.  or take chances in the sun.  and like CupCake, you have to worry about the chlorine levels.  I went swimming with my sis twice the past couple days.....coated head to toe in SPF 100.  and I can feel it.....the indoor pool here was closed for maintenance....so I bit the bullet and went in the pool....in the sun.  Didn't want to disappoint my sister......she has done SO MUCH for me.  I could do this little thing for her.....she is a fish, without a swimming pool.

I'm paying for it today.

sigh.  rant over.

Love, crabby Bun

Marilynb yep we feel like c r a p a lot and sometimes it gets us down but usually there is someone around here who can pick you up

We are firm believers of venting and not holding it in.

Take care
