I had been diagnosed many years ago, with IBS, endometriosis adenomyosis and possible IBD or early crohns if that makes any sense. I control my intolerance's with eliminating the foods or drinks that cause problems. Noticed it first when I was pregnant with my first that MSG became an issue. And been adding as I go. I am currently following a strict regime to see if it helps with what I believe is a latent endo flare up despite inactivity for 11 years post hysterectomy. I've probably lost most peoples interest now. Last night I had an episode from bell peppers, luckily I still have my dicetel and my heating pad , peppermint tea and gas x. I was up from 3 am -8 am in pain. Luckily I don't work as all these ailments have had me retire at age 33. I am 50 now.
I was wondering if I had my appendix removed if that would make me less intolerant of foods. I'm expected to have a laporoscopy approximately in March to determine if it is the return of adhesions ect. like my history would suggest., so if anyone knows, should I opt for removing it at that time?
I had a lot of peritoneal cysts and from what I read the ovaries produce this. Just find it interesting that so many women with endo also get diagnosed with IBS so I wonder if there is also a food sensitivity thing that can aggrivate the peritenium and produce a fluid that activates the ovaries into creating more estrogen and thus creating endometriosis? (things you can't say to a specialist)!
I watched a documentary the other night called Food Matters that talked about Angiogenisis,(blood vessel growth) excessive and insufficient and all the diseases that go along with both. The purpose of the documentary was to explain how we can eat ourselves healthy. And I'd like to do that, problem is even a lot of the good foods on the list I have become intolerant to.
It's worth a watch though.
