Let me tell you the truth…..I started this endometriosis blog about 4 years ago. I blogged about my diagnostic laparoscopy and my Endometriosis surgery. BUT thing just got too bad in all honesty. I was so ill in the 6 month run up to my latest operation that I could barely eat or stand, nevermind run a website. And the issues because so personal and impacted on my life so greatly that I didn’t think I could openly share them anymore.
My biggest surgery just 6 months ago was a 7 hour surgery which involved a bowel and bladder resection and stents in my ureters. The endometriosis had become so bad that it had grown through the walls of several of my major organs. I was on the way to losing a kidney.
Although I’m not 100% cured I am certainly managing to live life again since my operations (5 in total) and I am in a better place. I feel that I want to put a more positive spin on my blog this time around – to show you that it’s not all doom and gloom! On my endometriosis blog I will be sharing:
- Fitness Tips – I like to stay fit and healthy to give my body the best possible chance of fighting endo
- Mental Health Issues – I intend to talk about issues of mental health openly
- Endometriosis – tips for surgery survival and living with endo
- Infertility – That it is possible to get through infertility issues with your partner and although it is devastating, you can live a full life without children
- Endo Diet – Healthy eating and tips for a positive approach to an endo diet. An endo diet won’t cure endometriosis but it might help you to feel good.
- Supplements and Vitamins – Extra vitamins and supplements for endometriosis that can help with different symptoms and with overall health in general.
