Hi All,

As suggested by Connie, it might be interesting to see if there is a correlation between endometriosis and MC, (possibly by means of a link with gluten-sensitivity).

Of course, technically, I can't have endometriosis, but during my last surgery, the surgeons discovered that my intestines were laced with numerous adhesions that had to be removed/repaired, or, as the operative report stated, in doctorspeak, my intestine required "mobilization". Laughing

Please respond to the poll with your best answer.

Thanks,
Tex

Connie,

Thanks for sharing those photos. I'll bet you have great sunrises and sunsets regularly, in your beatiful location. Here in TX, the sunrises and sunsets seem kind of bland these days, mostly because of the drought, I suppose. sigh

My mom, who seems to be ground zero for all my problems (more on that in antother post...), had 3 massive fibroid tumors that resulted in total hysterectomy. I hear they are highly hereditary Sad. I had a very small one ID'd in my last pregnancy, but luckily it didn't grow or cause any symptoms.

Yes, grade 4 endometriosis. My fallopian tubes were destroyed from it (worst case my pathologist had ever seen in her career). My entire insides have been found stuck together at least twice (three abdominal surgeries thus far). I've also been unable to get pregnant despite 10 IVF cycles and 30 embryos transferred. I've had fibroids and endometriomas as well. :-S

One ovarian cyst in my early twenties, with extreme pain (I had to sleep sitting up, and had several doctor visits) until it burst on its own. No unusual pain during cycles for most of my life outside of that incident, but increasing painful cycles as I age.
