Hysterectomy- no periods until 19 years old and only 4 until i married and conceived at age of 20.
On birth control, one miscarriage @ 23.
@ 23 endometriosis surgery, 8 lbs of scar tissue removed.
still on bc.
One abortion @ 28 placenta was over the cervix and was still on bc.
Endometriosis surgery again @ 29.
Conceived at 30 and gave birth.
endometriosis surgery again @ 31
During all this time, maybe 4 to 5 periods a year. Period for 3 days and some periods were 30 days. Anemia was always an issue.
Husband @ 32 broke neck and became a c-3 quad. No more birth control. Quad for 21 years and i his sole caregiver.
@ 40 went thru menopause stopped periods.
Still had bleeding during exams and ultrasounds, cysts
Dr. Ivy decided to do a radical hysterectomy and removed more endometriosis scar tissue. I assume that this was all based on that history and my father died of cancer, his brother, sister, mother and 3 nieces and nephews.

last colonoscopy was in 2013 early in year.
I have IBS and take Poly Glyco twice a day for constipation, appendix ruptured when i was 11. see a gastro doctor once a year, he doesn't seem concerned, thinks it is my thyroid. primary dr thinks i am in the parameters of thyroid panel even though my mother and brother are on hypo thyroid meds. I have had H pylori treatments twice. Ulcer and possible hiatal hernia. Have had the scope down my throat and ultrasounds 3 years ago. gastro dr changed diet, then the bloating was worse, told me that some people cant handle lots of fiber and that i was one of those.....

My husband was a c-3 and YET he hooked up with his old girlfriend from high school via facebook. tried to leave in 2011 with our importing company and his assistant. I went into a downward spiral. I was 129lbs and 6 months later i was 92lbs. dr concerned that i kept loosing weight, i pulled the company back up, my son was still home at 16 and we got it back on track. husband stayed(should have let him go)and i had to continue to care for him.

health started going down, kidney stones from loosing weight so fast, gastro problems. got back to normal weight.
husband started going downhill in 2014 and died 2015. i had bloating, pain in upper right side stomach, ulcer problems, checked for fatty liver, nothing.
told it was nerves.
started putting on weight even on a strict diet, still put on weight, due to hysterectomy....
still have stomach upset, gerds, acid reflux and bloating so large that i can't wear sweats. if i didn't work at home i would be unemployed. can't sleep at night, want to sleep all day, even when driving. tired, run down, and was diagnosed with neutropenia and go septic when i get sick.
i just had type a flu and then bronchitis.
blood pressure is going up, weight is going up, energy is going down, constantly sick
go to primary and she isn't concerned, yes i need to lose weight but keep an eye on blood pressure may have to go on medication. i think that is just fixing a symptom and not the problem

Increasing weight require careful evaluation in your case. It's advisable to screen yourself for Thyroid issues.

Likewise antihypertensive medications should be considered at the earliest after discussing with your family physician.

An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is required to evaluate symptoms of gastritis


Avoid spicy fatty acids food stuff.
