Merry Christmas to me

I went back to see my consultant and she has given me a date for my hysterectomy - 30th Jan 13.

I was so nervous that I didn't sleep the night before my appointment. I am very lucky to have a supportive and understanding consultant at Bolton Royal.

I will be looking at 95% success rate and with those odds I am not hanging around. After suffering since August 1995 and having 3 laps and trying an assortment of hormone treatments and acupuncture I am so glad that this option is now happening and I will get my life back.

I have been following the endo diet and I have noticed some improvement, I do tend to have more energy and I have gone from suffering 21 days out of 28 to 10 out of 28. I would recommend any endo sufferers to try the diet.

I hope everyone out that suffers with endo gets the help and support they need for 2013.

I will be back after my op to let you know how I got on.

Merry Christmas Sue!

I hope everything goes well for you and you will be finally endo and pain free! :)

I'm endo free at the moment too, as I had excision from root of the endo, but I'm left with neurological pain and I'm trying to get rid of it, so I can leave everything related to endo behind me.

All the best

Hi there merry christmas I'm really pleased that u have your date and you are thinking positively ,I am waiting for a date for my hysterectomy and am also nervous have similar circumstances to you and am fed up of suffering. Are you having your ovaries removed ? Thanks x



I am having everything removed - a total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. I am slightly nervous as I know that this is a big operation and I will have to be very careful during my recovery, as I am not somebody that can just sit still. I am looking forward to having a better quality of life and not having to spend loads of money on painkillers.



Hiya, Good luck!!! and also since you recommend it can I have a link to your endo diet please? :)



Unfortunately I don't have a link. During the summer I was at my wits end after trying acupuncture for a 2nd time and the acupuncturist told my about a book - Recipes for Self Healing. I got the book from Amazon and also another book - Recipes for the Endometriosis Diet. Both of these have been very helpful. I do have quite a selection of books about coping with Endo and one that I am happy for you to have is Living well with Endo I have it twice and it does have an American background but it does help.

If you are interested let me have your address and I am happy to post it out to you. At some point I will be selling my collection of books but if I can go someway to help then more than happy to do so.
