I had (before surgery) my FIMBRIEA (the finger looking things between your fol-tube and ovaries) had big hanging cysts (one over in inch and a couple more half the size) so my fimbrieas were not moving (like it does during ovulatin) to go around my ovaries so my eggs were not reelecting into my flo-tube. That’s what was causing infertility. During surgery he pop and drained them (fixed the problem) and then checked out all my lady parts with a tiny camera and said everything else looks fabulous and beautiful! And... That he doesn’t really see any signs on PCOS. So…. Here’s the GREAT news, Matthew and I should conceive a baby SOON!

(my hair after surgery haha)

So last night (dec 8, 2010) I got surgery (laprosc.) to look for Endo, come to find out I don't have any Endo growths but he did find multiple cysts In my ovaries to PCOS. He poped and drained them and sewed me back up. I have two cuts the size of quarters. And the most horrible pain I have ever felt in ny life... Good news is that he told me I have beautiful lady parts and I had ovulated recently but of course I have to let the egg die due to not being able to have intercourse for a couple of weeks. But hopefully soon we will be able to a little one :]

our new ways of eating!

i have been reading alot of endo, pcos and fertility diet books.

we are eating great now, everything organic, heathy, lots of fruits and veggies, no - low carbs, no pros meats, no hormone dairys, no sugars.

i have been making homemade juice everyday. carrots, apples, ginger, graps, and wheat grass! sounds pretty nasty but its really yummy! and i dis-like veggies!

eating better and taking multi vitamins i feel so much better and healthier and i have more energy!

Night at the ER

i have been having the worst endo pain thats un-bearable! its to the point when i cant walk well, its interfering with my life, job, marriage.

i went in to the er fri oct 1st at 9:00 pm. due to the pain, they hooked me up to an iv with pain and nausea meds, he checked my lady area for any infections, took a pregnancy test, took a urine sample, took blood sample, more pain meds, did a cat scan and did not find anything but a normal cyst and also a huge cyst that had evaporated but nothing to cause me that much pain. im 99.99 % sure its endo growths but on a cts, ultrasounds, mris etc. endo does not show up. that doctor even with nothing to do about the pain beside pain meds he was a really great guy! i realy liked him, he made me feel so comfortable! he did one more pump of pain and nausea meds and sent me home with percocet 5-325 mg and told me to do a fallow up with my obgyn (dr. weeks)

on monday i called doctor weeks and the nurse get me in right away. i told him about the pain and my night in the er and he gave me 3 options. 1 get on birth control to help with the pain and regulat my period, whitch is not an option for me knowing we are trying to get pregnant. 2 get a hormone shot (deppo i think) wich will take away my period and is a birth control or 3 do surgery and check- take out all the endo growths which there are rists with surgery. and of course i choosed to do surgery. so he is going to set it all up and get me in as soon as he can in the next week - 6 weeks, he is going to call me tomorrow and let me know when.

as odd as it sounds i cant wait to get surgery, i want this pain to go away plus i have read about alot of women who had this surgery and became pregnant soon after. so im really looking forward to it! :)

we also talked about putting my on clomid, a fertility drug that will make me ovulat.

we are also doing a sperm test on matt tomorrow so please pray that, that goes well and he has happy, healthy sperm for me to make our beautiful baby!

more doctor updates

i have not posted in a while, been very busy with work, matts going to school, moved etc.

i have been to the doctors many times since i have last posted.

mainly seeing doctor lin, getting on the right med and trying to figure out my daily migraine issues. she started me on lorazepam 0.5 mg for anxiety and panic attacks and it has made a world of a difference in not only anxiety but also i have noticed less migraines.

i also went to see a diabetes-hormone specialist about 3 weeks ago, he lowerd my metformin from 1500 to 1000 because my body can not handle that much i had diarrhea and nausea almost 24-7. he also put me on actos, i see hint back in a couple of weeks to do some lab work.

Birth control

I went and saw a OBGYN yesterday for Endo. He did a pap (very painful) and we discussed options birth control, surgery or just deal with the pain.. And I refused birth control, he gave me a prescription NAPOXEN for the pain.

After talking with a friend, my husband and mom I decided to call my OBGYN (dr. Weeks) and go on the birth control for 3 months to regulate myself. So.. We will see how it goes!

Appt With DR Lin

Had a doctor appt today with DR Lin. She is sending me to a hormone specialist to get tested, she prescribed me another blood presser medication to take with my others to control it a little better and also to see if that reduces my daily migraines... She told me about a natural vitamin that may help me with nausea... She wants to see if my fallopian tubes are blocked, and also told Matthew to get some sperm testing done.

I can’t wait to get all my medical problems under control and diagnosed. All I want is to be a momma

Thursday, May 20, 2010


The last couple of weeks I have been having none stop pounding migraines, which is normal for me to get them but not this severe and often.

This morning I had a doctor apt with Tarbet due to my migraines, he subscribed me Epidrin (again) and ordered in some lab work to check my diabetes again.

I’m really looking for a doctor(preferably a girl) who can do some good testing and help me out more rather then drug me up and try to cover up the problems... so if you have any suggestions let me know! Thanks

OH PS. If you sign up for BMC at their webpage you can make online apts I got in the very next day that I made it!

Monday, April 26, 2010


So I had an OBGYN apt with doctor weeks today. He said that metformin kicks in and usually you should be able to get pregnant after 8 months of being on it. I’ve have been on it for about 6-9 months. He said that if in not pregnant by Halloween he will run and do more tests on me to make sure that I’m able to become a mommy. He checked all my “lady parts” and everything looks good, healthy and working well. Also all my medications are all safe for my baby. We are on the right path to parenthood!!

Emergency Room 4/9/10

Last night I went in to the Emergency room due to the amount of pain that I have been, I’m always in pain around my ovaries and lower back but this last week I have been on the couch in pain. Anyway they hooked me up to an IV and pumped me with pain meds and something for nausea… did a required pregnancy test and did an ultra sounds on my bladder, kidneys, ovaries and uterus and all the found was a smaller cyst which that would not affect with the pain that in in..

The other day I did some research on endometriosis, and I strongly thank that I do have it.

• Painful periods
• Pain during sex
• Pain with urinating and bowel movements
• Pelvic or low back pain

The ER doctor and ultra sound tech said that I need to get tested for that asap and do some test to see what’s going on with me.
THANK GOD the doctor gave me Percocet even though I only get 12, it still helps.

April period

Started the 6th and lasted through the 9th
very heavy bleeding and small blood clots, and in A LOT OF PAIN!!

Up-date on Cpap

Went to see the respiratory therapist and he said that I’m doing amazing on my CPAP machine. He said it usually takes someone get at a level 80 in 2 months, and I was at leave 100 in a couple of days. They way my mask fits and everything it perfect they said. I’m really glad and I REALLY love it. wow it makes the world of a difference

Sunday, March 28, 2010


I started on a CPAP about a couple of weeks ago for my sleep apnea, and oh boy it makes all the difference in the world, I have a lot energy during the day it’s really nice. I’m at level 6 which is not very much air presser but it sure helps.

I’m using the S9 Series machine with a full face mask because I breathe out on my mouth... it’s not the comfortablest threw out the night but I’ll get used to it pretty soon.. It almost feels like scuba diving gear, haha


I think I’m ovulating right now by the way my cervical mucus is so, PRAY that Matt’s little spermies get to my eggies! Lol

March period

My monthley friend finally came a week late. 3 weeks of cyst pain and a week of cramps, back pain, migraines, being tired, tender nipples and all the craving of salty foods. I cant wait for this to be over..

Sleep Doctor..

Patty sent me to the sleep center and I did a overnight sleep test and I have really bad sleep apnea, they sleep dr said that I need to get my tonsils out because they are huge then I was sent to a ENT, he said that it is a big risk to get them out and he doesn’t think that it’s a good idea.. Went back to the sleep dr and he said that we should get a 2nd opinion about getting them out so a while later I finely got in to see another ENT he said he will do it on March 15, 2010...

Well on a Sunday he called me up and saying that he has lost a lot of sleep over taking my tonsils out and that it is too big of a risk of me bleeding to death and also my blood presser will rise way to much so there for I have another apt with my sleeping doctor on tus.

In the mean time I was sick for 6 months since the day after my honeymoon I seen my doctor about 3 times and said it allergies or this or that... So I saw Dr. Tarbet after some testing I was diagnosed with chronic sinusitis but antibiotics and a nose spray took care of it!

After being told that I do not have the kidney disease the same doctor wanted to do surgery to be 100% sure that I don’t. October 08 I did the surgery they put a catheter from my groin up to my kidneys and took some photos and the results were that for sure I do not have it... so then I went through more rounds of testing and found out that I do have PCOS.

Then that doctor became an ass and didn’t want to deal with my health so I started seeing another doctor... she started my on a lot of meds

June 21, 2008, I dont have the diseases

So guess what everyone…

I went I did my MRI, went in the stupid tube, arms tied down, a camera on my belly, an iv, and cords and tubes every where. And some big ass head phones on. I felt so trapped. Like I was in a coffin… they took some pics on my kidneys, I was in there for about 15 min. she started pumping that dye in my ram.. I donno I started freaking out, shaking like crazy, grinding my teeth, sweating like no other, felt like I was going in to a seizer. I pushed something and it set off an alarm. The doctor came running in and got me out. Ripped off my iv. and I was out of there….

2 days later… my kidney doctor called me and said that my kidneys are fine, witch I don't know what to think about that. Kind of upset. I just got used to that fact that I was going to get surgery. And I was okay with it. But nope… I have though I had this diseases for about 5 months now. I don't understand…

So now I have to run A LOT more test to see why my blood presser is as high as it is... I'm kind of scared they might find something bad.

So for I have had my heart checked about 3 times, my kidney ultra sounded twice, and also my tummy, bladder, overies, liver I think? An MRN and MRA. Gavin so many blood and pee samples. X rays and everything….

I don't know why its taking SO long to find out what's wrong with me. This has been going on since for about 4 years now. As I can remember. So stressful. I don't know what to think anymore….

February 29, 2008, rear diseases

My rear diseases

I have a diseases that I was born with and just found out. I stated going to the doctor in 05 about my blood presser being high. Before they weren't really going anything about it so I gave up on going for a little bit. I got into a car accident this last January, went to the ER and I had about 5 doctors yell and freak out on me about my blood presser being so high and not doing anything about it. So a couple of days later I went in, I talked to my doctor and he sent me to go a ultrasound on my heart because I have a really bad heart murmur and he was wondering if that was the problem to my BP (blood presser). My heart is bad but that's not the cause of my BP. Then sent me to go get my kidneys ultra sounded and gat some sound waves done. Then Blood tests and p tests done. I want back to find out the results and they found out I have a diseases.

I went to a kidney DR. (he shouldn't of seen me but he wanted really wanted to meet me because of my disease) we talked, he asked me LOTS of Q's and told me what I have its REALLY rare disease on both of my kidneys called renal artery stenosis, renovascular disease, renovascular hypertension or, ischemic nephropathy. They are both punched, not getting enough blood in my renal arteries. Only 5% of people with high BP have it in the world. And no one my age has it and has as high BP as me. He gave me High blood presser pills, and acid reflex pills.
Symptoms I have… Irregular heartbeat, Nosebleed, Tiredness, Vision changes, Headache, Confusion, Crushing, angina-like chest pain, Trouble breathing, cysts, high blood pressure and more….

The next step is to get a MRI. Its like a catscan but they look more into my kidneys. Im going to get pills to help me calm down and relax when I'm in it for about an hr. I have to get Ivs and meds pumped into me when I'm there.
The step after that, I have to get surgery done. Angioplasty, What they do is go into both kidney artery's and feed a catheter threw, a catheter is like a balloon, it expands and opens up my pinched arteries and also dye.
After that I should be getting off all my pills that I an on, my blood presser should go down. And I shouldn't have as many health problems. I AM SO TIRED OF IT ALL!!!!

I cant wait Intel its all over.

November 18, 2006, I posted this on my myspace when I was 16.

hares an update about what’s going on with me and the whole going to the dr all the time. I went in to the ER a year ago cuz of an eye infection. They said I have really high blood presser and that I need to go see a specials so that what I did . They checked my heart and said I have a heart murmur but other than that I’m fine. A year later. A couple of weeks ago I went into er again cuz the side of my face was all swollen and it hurt really bad and they said I has a stone in my glands or something like that . They said it will pass and gave me meds. Then they also checked my blood presser and they told me I need to go see someone as soon as I can. So a couple days later I went in and they told me I need to get lab work done and then come back and talk to them. I got the lab work done. I had to p in a cup and they took some blood. I went back into the dr . And they told me I need a get my kidneys checked. I have a sleeping problem and they said that can coz high blood presser. She told me a need to quit smoking and drinking, tonight my lower tummy started to hurt really really really bad. So I went in to the er at like 8:00 pm. They hooked me up to ivs and took some blood and my blood presser and all that kinda stuff. They said my heart murmur has gotten worst. The dr. said that she needs to do something I forgot what it was called .. she checked my lady area . omg I thought that was the worst thing that could happen tonight . But then she told me that I need to go and get a catscam . I don’t even know what that was . the dr. pushed my bed thing in that room and some other dr. gave me something threw my iv and she told me to lay on my side . and she put this thing up my behind and then this little balloon thingy and pumped a big bag of water or something in side of me and then I had to go in this big thingy to get x-rays . omg it hurt so bad . after that she draind it after that I went back into my room . And they took my blood presser and everything again. and they said I have a cyst on my ovary . And it’s big. So a little bit later I went in and got an ultrasound my kidneys and also my cyst thingy and I had to get this long cold thing up in me. One of the dr. said if the cyst got raped around something I have to get surgery tonight. Thank god it wasn’t. And I’m fine. I can’t do anything for a while like hang out with people they said . I’m in so much pain I don’t know why they didn’t give my some good pain killers. I have to go to “lady” dr soon . I have to go back to my high blood presser dr. Monday. And tell the I already got my kidneys checked and they were fine. so now I need to find out the next step to my blood presser . I think it’s my sleeping problem though. I hope so I’m done with the dr .
