Self portrait - Feeling the blues

It's been busy and rough week with a few doctor's appointments for Brad and I, some yard work, housework, migraines and dealing with the dreadful heat.

After discussing it with my Gynaecologist on Friday, I tried stopping the Progesterone medication and the results weren't good which we knew could be a possibility.  I suffered really bad abdominal pain among other things and I could only find relief from with prescription strength pain-killers that knocked me out. The Gynaecologist said if this happened that I was to just start taking the progesterone again until just a few days before surgery.  Bummer....it looks like I'll have to get my new script filled for more Progesterone. I was hoping I wouldn't have to. :(

So, needless to say, I've been feeling a little blue hence my self-portrait for Week 6.

Week 6 - 52 Weeks of Me 2012 project - Feeling the blues

I hope you had a better week.

~ Love, light and peace ~

  15. Clever blue self portrait - and so sad to hear about the pain. Is your diagnosis somewhat similar to endometriosis? I heard there is a lot of pain with that.

    Hope you feel better and find relief for a long time.

  16. I do want to say that you look great in blue. It really is a lovely portrait. I hope that this week finds you feeling better and that the weeks pass quickly.

  17. Thanks for all the caring comment, everyone. I'm hoping I'll improve a bit once the progesterone (Primolut-N) kicks back in. The pain and back ache reminds me too much of labour.

    Krissie - Yep, I was hoping I could stop them after the recent biopsy being that I'm getting scheduled for a hysterectomy anyways. The gyno suspected I would end up worse off if I stopped them so at least I know now.

    Sandy - I'm not sure what the comparison is with Endometriosis but this condition is where the uterus becomes enlarged and the lining thickens. The pain reminds me so much of labour contractions. Terrible! At least the severe pain isn't constant but I do have regular abdominal discomfort even being on the Primolut.

    Thanks again, everyone ~ xo

  19. Hi Serena,
    I am visiting you via Sandy's blog. I didn't read enough to know for sure if you have recently had a hysterectomy...but if so...I had one at 39. Feel free to email me...if you want. I took Progesterone for one year afterwards.

  20. Ohhh, your pain is like labor contractions, oh my... Sorry to read that...!

    I'm sure your surgery can't get here soon enough.
