My lady bits seem to be in a bit of a mess, and much like the storm last night the bad news just keeps pouring down in Clamland…
The results of the endometrial biopsy are in (that lab rocks – how quick was that?) and I have a low grade chronic endometrial infection. Stress on the low grade and chronic (Dr V’s words not mine). It seems that my body is not producing the correct amounts of or break down of hormones to support endometrial lining (hence the 48 day bleed fest) and further to that due to this lack of hormones I now have a CHRONIC LOW GRADE infection. Shit!!!
As much as it goes against my every fibre, I have to go onto the pill to stop the bleeding and to kick start the hormones required and also have to be on a course of anti-biotics for 10 days to fix the infection.
Good solid plan in action. So why am I so bummed out? I feel like I should have acted sooner rather than later… while I was mucking around with homeopathic remedies and china herbs this could have been averted or picked up sooner. I would not be stuck on an endless merry go round of bad news buffeted by more bad news and would a be good couple of months closer to the prize at the end of the tunnel.
I feel like I am letting Cliff down… again. I want to cry my eyes out but at the same time am swallowing hard against the lump in my throat that is building up as a type this out cos I want to be strong and mature enough to roll with the punches.
Oh well, time to go and fill the prescription for the pill and my anti-biotics!
