It's Been a Rough Couple of Weeks

May 14th, 2015 at 06:13 pm

TMI medical stuff, so go away if you are squeamish or don't like female reproductive problems. My daughter has been very sick and we've taken her to the hospital twice in the past 2 weeks. We've been to the doctor twice and on the phone with him or the nurses more times than I can remember at this point. Please pray for her to heal.

We are pretty sure she has what I had all those years ago that caused the $150,000 worth of medical debt, endometriosis and carcinoid tumors, but of course we don't know that without surgery and they are still just wanting to do chemical intervention which has not worked so far.

Mostly we just want the blood loss to stop or at least taper off enough that she can go back to school without soaking a pad every hour. Her anemia is getting quite bad at this point with 8 weeks of bleeding. So she starts the shots today. Hopefully they will be more effective than 3 BCP's a day.

She had missed a lot of school because she has been bleeding through her clothing and the district is getting snippy about absences, though the school itself knows what is going on and is a bit better. So prayer that they will let her graduate would be appreciated. And that the new medical costs don't bury us alive.

    Prayers offered for your daughter's recovery - that she find relief soon and that there are no obstacles for her graduation. Take care of yourself as well, I cannot imagine that sort of continual stress. (hugs) and prayers!!

    I'm so sorry DD has such a serious medical problem at such a young age. What did the Laparoscopy reveal? What action was/will be taken to remove lesions? This has potential for such serious, life altering results. Many prayers for the best possible outcomes.

    It strikes me as a lot of rough stuff to be going through so young. Fingers crossed that she can graduate and heal.

  9. LuckyRobin Says:

    Snafu, she has had not had surgery. As I said, they want to do chemical intervention before they will consider surgical intervention.

    MM--It is rough to go through this stuff at a young age. I started getting treatment for mine in my early twenties. I have been watching her and waiting for signs since she hit puberty. It is scary watching my kid go through it.

  11. Shiela Says:

    So sorry to hear about your daughter. I hope things will be better soon.

    Sorry to hear about your daughter's problems and hope it turns out well, and soon.

  18. CB in the City Says:

    Oh dear, I went through something similar, but at a much greater age. I know what you mean about chemical intervention not working! Hope it does, though, for her.

    I had endometriosis years ago. Your daughter has my sympathies for having to go through this, as modern medical science does not have the answers as to the cause and the treatments they do have are nothing short of torture. My relief came in the form of going to a chiropractor with advanced training in nutrition, lifestyle management, and acupuncture. I have had no relapse since then. Also, I found books about the topic "endocrine disruption" to be extremely helpful and enlightening as to the cause of it all.

  20. PatientSaver Says:

    That must be tough on your daughter. I hope they get to the bottom it soon.

  21. LuckyRobin Says:

    Thank you so much, everybody. You guys never fail with your support, kind thoughts, and prayers. It helps just knowing it is out there.

  26. LuckyRobin Says:

    Denise, she finally stopped bleeding today. But she is still in a lot of pain.
