Yes, it’s January 16, 2018. It’s a very late new year greetings! 😆
I haven’t posted anything here for more than a month. I was busy failing on my Endo diet and trying to get back on track over and over again! 😅
2018 gives me a new kind of stress in my head. My husband and I are planning to move to his home country this year. We are busy preparing my immigrant visa application and making some scenarios of what ifs. What if I couldn’t get my visa this summer while my husband already told his boss he would not continue his work contract? What if after we moved back to his home country we couldn’t get a job? In my head was, what if after I migrated there my condition not getting better and I couldn’t work? The living cost there is much higher than China’s and if my husband is the only one who works, our life will be more difficult than in China. I wouldn’t have health insurance and the gynecologist cost would be ridiculously expensive. God, I need to take a deep long breath…
Okay, enough with an unnecessary stress that I have just created. New update, my Ayurvedic doctor prescribed me with a new Ayurvedic medicine at the end of December. She also told me to take Serratiopeptidase enzymes – it’s supposed to help to relief my pain naturally because it’s coming from silkworms enzyme (We will talk about it later in a different post) and she told me to take diclofenac to replace ibuprofen (It works much better than ibuprofen for me, but I have to take it with pantoprazole so it won’t irritate my stomach lining). So far my pain is lessened but the duration of the bleeding is lengthened although the bleeding volume is less. This is my second-month taking Serratiopeptidase, I think my body is still adapting. I read that we can see the result of taking Serratiopeptidase after 3 months so we will see!
That’s all for now, I will try to post another update this week.
Total ibuprofen taken: 1
Symptoms: Heavy bleeding, Back pain (2-4/10), Lower abdomen pain (1/10)
Last cycle I took 4×200 mg ibuprofen on day 2. I had heavy bleeding, back pain (2-3/10), cramps (4-5/10), and nauseous.
I’m down from 4 to 1 ibuprofen. For me that’s a miracle! The endo diet works, the Ayurvedic medicines and supplements work. I’m very grateful!!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
I had a late breakfast, around 11 am. I woke up quite early but I felt tired because I woke up several time the night before. So I decided to take a nap to regain my energy.
I had papayas, strawberries, fava beans, almonds, and cashews for breakfast. Nuts and beans really help to make me feel stuffed.
For lunch I had 麻辣汤 (Malatang: spicy soup). I didn’t expect the restaurant to gave me that much chili oil because I ordered the mild broth, I ended up do not drink the soup 😓
So what’s in my soup? There are cauliflowers, napa cabbages, black mushrooms, seaweeds, rice noodles, and quail eggs. I didn’t eat the quail eggs, I forgot that I shouldn’t order it because it’s almost my period time, it’s better to avoid anything from animals including eggs.
I had a late lunch, around 3:30pm. By the dinner time, I didn’t really feel hungry. So I just eat seamed organic rice, steamed cauliflowers, and steamed pineapple.
Around 9pm I started eat mix nuts again 😆
Pain checker of day -3 of the projected period:
No pain at all, my mood was good 😊 I still have a little cold symptom, but I think it’s going away.
The same day last period I did 24 hours water fasting to relieve my back pain and lower abdomen discomfort.
I have two doctors who are treating my Adenomyosis. My first doctor is an Ayurvedic gynecologist from India, she has been treating me for more than a year now. She also sent me medicines when I had miscarriage. My second doctor is a local gynecologist here in China.
My Chinese gynecologist gave me some capsules that will help regulates my menstrual problem, it also helps relieve the pain. I have checked with my Indian gynecologist, she said it’s not contradicts my current medicines. So now I’m taking medicines from both doctors 😆
Because I ran out my Ayurvedic pills, for now I only take Ayurvedic decoction that mixed with 1tsp castor oil in the morning and only Ayurvedic decoction at night.
This drink tastes so bad, I always feel want to throw up after I drink it 😷😷😷 I always tell my self, “Drink it like a champ! Drink it like a champ!”. But after that… 😫😫😫😷😷😷
I’m still waiting for my new Ayurvedic medicines arrive, maybe next week. Meanwhile I have to survive the castor oil madness 😱😱😱
