On Jan 3rd I had a hysterectomy (they were able to leave my ovaries). Can I just say "WOW!" I feel so much better. Evidently a great deal of my pain was the endometrial adhesions I had on my uterus and intestines. I am wishing I'd had surgery years ago when I was first diagnosed with endometriosis.
That being said, since my surgery I had 4 weeks of zero joint pain. I can't begin to think of the last time I went that long being pain free. Then my hubby lost his job and I was hit at 3am with excruciating pain. I did my relaxation and got through it without resorting to pain meds (just my usual meds I take). I ache a little now and then, but nothing compared to the bulk of last year.
I am back at work now and loving it. Plus I am walking up to 1-1/2 miles a day which feels fabulous!
Hope everyone is having a good New Year so far!

Yay!!! I am so happy the surgery worked for you. I had a complete hysterectomy 2 years ago and have been pleased with the results.

I'm sorry your husband lost his job and you had the relapse of pain but am glad to hear the pain didn't last long.

Keep up with the walking! It is so good for you!

Lisa
