Sorry everyone this is going to be a bit of a long one at the moment I'm struggling with lots of stuff and feeling really fed up. All advice appreciated
I had my second Prostap injection at the begining of the month and the last couple of weeks I have been feeling really miserable and old and like my bodies not my own any more even more so than I did at the start of the treatment.
I am studying for my final exams at uni in 2 weeks (which were put back from May due to me having had major excision surgery at the end of april) so I am already stressed out with the amount of work I've got to do so thats probably not helping.
I was given livial as HRT in April when I had my first prostap injection, but I havent taken it since the first months worth ran out, I made the decision not too due to my scary mood swings and feeling like I wanted to just explode out of my own body!
anyone used any natural alternatives to HRT that are suitable whilst on prostap or any other type of these injections? I feel like I need something as the hot flushes I am experiencing are really awful and I get wet with sweat from them. I am considering going back to Livial but would like to try and find some alternative first.
I was following the endo diet pretty well until my fiance lost his job at the beggining of the month and I havent really been able to afford to be buying wheat / gluten free, I am trying to get back onto it at the minute, think I'm just going to go veggie for now - although stocking up on fruit and veg can be pretty expensive Does anyone know any good websites for or have any recipes / ideas that are suitable for the endo diet because I'm struggling to come up with things.
Since around 4 weeks ago I have noticed changes to my hair and skin and my general self esteem. I have got terrible spotty skin on my face and keep breaking out all the time and looks really pasty and dull, my body just doesnt feel right the skin feels sort of squishy or watery, I feel achy most of the time and old! My hair seems to be frizzier than usual as well and dull. Like I said the hot flushes are terrible and if Im not having one Im shivering, even though I'm not particularly tired during the day I'm struggling to wake up in the mornings so not getting up till 11. 12 or later! i'm having really restless sleeps because of night sweats and getting up needing a drink or the loo! I generally feel rubbish and ugly. I feel like I cant explain to my fiance how I feel because he just says you're lovely and theres nothing wrong with you and but I know he cant really understand what I'm going through. Any experiences with this / advice on what to do take would be really helpful. Will I feel normal again once the prostap starts going out of my system after the 6 months is up in October? I panic thinking that my body will never be the same again and I'll be stuck feeling like a horrible old women (I'm only 27)
Since my laparoscopy and excision surgery my 'lady bits' just havent felt right, it was extremely swollen after the op and that has gone but the skin above sort of the bottom of my pelvis feels squashy and looks different to how it used to? Is this fairly normal after a lap / surgery and if and when will it start to feel normal again?
All of this is making me feel really miserable and I'm getting fed up feeling sorry for myself so I will be so grateful for anything any of you can tell me
