Is there a Connection?

I came across this website and could feel the pain in this girl as she was suffering from Fibromyalgia, being treated with Lupron and awaiting surgery. She has ovarian cysts, uterus tilted, golf ball fibroids and lots of endometriosis gluing her organs to her abdominal wall. Her left ovary is in bad shape and she has a lot of groin pain.

What a shame that they just cut out the parts because they hurt. If I only knew then what I know now I would never have let them do surgery on me but I was only 18 and didn’t know better. I certainly wouldn’t let the have let them treat me with the Lupron either. I would have saved my ovary and made the changes I had to. The Lupron didn’t even take away the cyst it only shut my body down and as far as the endometriosis it did not help either. When I got my tubes tied, I ended up having my bowels surgically “unglued” from my spine from scar tissue from the surgery of the cyst. Now I am starting to wonder if that is why I have so much pain in my spine, what did they do?

There are many, many woman on the website hystersisters with Fibromyalgia. Reading the comments, surgery shows to cause a lot of problems for women with Fibromyalgia or was it the surgery that caused the Fibromyalgia?

https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/showthread.php?p=2558971
So what can we do? What alternative is there?

I want to share an experience I had. I went into a study for a couple of Osteopaths for old surgery. They did their thing, didn’t seem like they were doing much but I received a lot of pain relief. I also passed a pile of scar tissue and it freed up a lot of pain in my lower abdomen. I really suggest body work with someone experienced in scar tissue like an osteopath, acupuncture or therapeutic massage. It is recommended by the American College of Rheumatology. One of the girls said acupuncture worked on her surgical scar that caused nerve pain.

 

Here are her own words:

Questions….I have fibromyalgia, will have surgery 8 weeks away in June LAVH/BSO. Lupron shot in February ( 3 month kind) PAIN still is horrible. Ovarian cysts, uterus tilted, golfball fibroid. and lots of endometriosis that is “glueing” my organs to the abdominal wall. Left ovary is in bad shape and therefore alot of groin pain. Do I have to just tough it out until surgery or is there a pain relief medicine ar alternative you ladies have tried and is effective?
thanks in advance. This long wait was my choice not dr. due to work schedule. I am holding out fora great long summer recovery!

I included this article earlier in medical mistakes and unnecessary surgeries but I wanted to touch on it again to share my recent experience and am hoping that other women will share their similar experiences.

I have had abdominal pain for quite some time. My Gynecologist, Dr Pettle delivers babies and does hormonal balancing so he sent me to another gynecologist for an opinion. Within 10 minutes without any tests, she felt my abdomen and wanted to do a complete hysterectomy.

The horrific look on my face told her I wasn’t too keen on that idea. I told her no, I wanted to keep my parts and asked why I had the pain. She said it was from the cyst I had and endometriosis and that we could do a partial hysterectomy. I told her I just wanted to rule out anything serious like cancer.

Unnecessary surgery exposed! Why 60% of all

surgeries are medically unjustified and how

surgeons exploit patients to generate profits

Friday, October 07, 2005 by: Alexis Black, citizen journalist

Women are at an especially high risk of unnecessary

surgery

Women may be at an especially high risk for unwarranted operations, since hysterectomies and Cesarean sections also top the list of “overprescribed and unnecessary” surgeries. Of the approximately 750,000 hysterectomies performed each year, 90 percent are unnecessary, writes Goldberg in Alternative Medicine, making the removal of a woman’s uterus one of the most commonly performed unnecessary surgeries. And the risk that comes with an unwarranted hysterectomy is high. “Each year 750,000 hysterectomies are performed and 2,500 women die during the operation. These are not sick women, but healthy women who go into the hospital and do not come out,” says Dr. Herbert Goldfarb, a gynecologist and assistant clinical professor at New York University’s School of Medicine, in Null’s Woman’s Encyclopedia Of Natural Healing

.

Women are also frequently subjected to Caesarean sections they don’t really need. With an estimated 920,000 Cesarean births performed each year, the Cesarean has become the “most common major surgery in America” and it is four times more likely a woman will give birth via cesarean section today than it was in 1970, according to The Medical Racket by Martin L. Gross. Women are also at special risk for receiving unwarranted surgeries because of the results of a mammogram, since the high rate of false positives in mammography often leads to invasive procedures. Women who do not even have cancer to begin with are treated for breast cancer, Goldberg writes. That’s right: These women’s bodies are carved up and altered and they aren’t even sick. So why does this happen?

Needless surgeries mean higher profits for doctors

and hospitals

It may seem unfathomable to think a doctor could be so careless as to perform an operation that doesn’t need to be done, but it has been happening for years, from the more minor routinely- performed tonsillectomies of the past to the invasive heart procedures, hysterectomies, back surgeries and more of today. “(T)he reality is that unnecessary surgery, whether performed by doctors who operate out of ignorance, self-delusion, or simple greed has long plagued medicine and today still reaches epidemic proportions.” writes Gross. It may be hard to stomach the idea that doctors are capable of operating out of greed for more money, but some feel that is exactly what is happening. “American physicians are generally way too eager to use the surgeon’s knife to carve up and chop out whatever they think is ailing you, at great expense to you and great profit to them and the hospitals they work for,” write Earl Mindell and Virginia Hopkins in Prescription Alternatives.

http://www.naturalnews.com/012291.html

It is quite bizarre, I had my own experience a couple of months ago. My gynecologist sent to another gynecologist for a consult for something he doesn’t do and she wanted to give me a complete hysterectomy within the first 10 minutes. I told her I liked my parts and I wanted to keep them, I just wanted to know if there was any concern from my pain.

After the second visit she realized that I just wanted to know what was going on and if I had cancer or not.  The tests came back negative but she still recommend removal of my right ovary and take some other things out (don’t get it, it was removed when I was 18). I opted out, went back to Dr Pettle and he said the natural medicines that I was taking will take care of the cyst and the pain I have. I trust him because he got rid of them before without surgery or dangerous drugs like the Lupron. The pain is getting better and eventually I think it will disappear with time with the addition of fading out the mucous and dioxin causing foods in my diet.

My opinion is that I don’t think I needed my ovary removed when I was 18 and I don’t think they needed to give me the toxic drug Lupron to get rid of the other cyst either (which it didn’t by the way). I was just a kid though and thought Doctors knew best. We can heal from within with the right direction if there is no permanent damage.

Personally, I believe that my cysts come from dairy products and the endometriosis is from meat protein but that is my experience of what it does in my body. I am A blood type. I know dairy, beef and wheat gives me a lot of mucous throughout my body, arthritis pain and I have trouble breathing. I am lactose intolerant as well.

My point is that if we stuff a towel in a leaky pipe, it isn’t fixing the problem. I believe health care is too quick to take parts out without correcting what is causing the problem in the first place. Please share your experience in comments.

My opinion is that I don’t think I needed my ovary  removed when I was 18 and I don’t think they needed to give me the toxic drug Lupron to get rid of a cyst either. We can heal from the inside with the right direction.

Although these reports aren’t directly related to Fibromyalgia it has everything to do with our health care today and the crisis it really is in. Just a few to give you an idea of the unnecessary Surgeries and medical mistakes below. I think they are too quick to remove our organs.

Windsor hospital probes other

‘cases of concern’

Operations performed on 2 women who did not have cancer

Heartwell has voluntarily stopped performing surgeries pending the results of the probe. Any patients with concerns about their care were asked to call (519) 255-2213.

Two cases involving Heartwell have been made public so far. The latest was Janice Laporte of Sarnia, whom Heartwell operated on in 2001. A report later revealed the woman did not need the mastectomy. Laporte’s case was the second to come to light in less than a week.

In November 2009, Heartwell did a mastectomy on Laurie Johnston, 44, of Leamington. It was only in a followup appointment that Heartwell told Johnston she had never had cancer. The hospital revealed Heartwell had misread the initial pathology report.

Hospital administration was alerted to the error after being contacted by local media. It immediately launched an investigation and a review of Heartwell’s mastectomy files.

In a statement released Tuesday, the hospital said it had received detailed information about another incident in which a patient was “tragically harmed.”

When Laporte heard there was another woman who underwent an unnecessary mastectomy by the same surgeon, she said she decided to go public with her story.

“I was very devastated, because I went through everything all over again, I cried,” Laporte told CBC News.

BACKGROUND: During the past two years, this Blog has reported on a crisis in Canadian pathology indicated by serious breakdowns in hospitals in Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Ontario and elsewhere in the country. The purpose, beyond seeking review and reform, is to show that the wide-ranging problems with pathology in Canada were not limited to the criminal sector – and that serious errors, sometimes lethal, were being made in reading test results on living patients. In short, that there was a crisis in Canadian pathology.

Consequences of Gallbladder Surgery: Overview

http://smithforensic.blogspot.com/2010/08/pathology-crisis-in-canada-report.html


One of the biggest crimes in modern American medicine is the amount of unnecessary surgery preformed. Gallbladder operation is the most common operation in North America. Every year, more than half a million people in the United States and more than 50,000 people in Canada undergo surgery to remove their gallbladders because of gallstones. Many of these surgeries are unnecessary.

No Deaths from Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids or Herbs
Poison Control Statistics Prove Supplements’ Safety

(OMNS, January 19, 2010) There was not even one death caused by a dietary supplement in 2008, according to the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System. The new 174-page annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, published in the journal Clinical Toxicology, shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from any of the B vitamins; zero deaths from vitamins A, C, D, or E; and zero deaths from any other vitamin.

More medical mistakes……

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=3789868&page=1

Here are a few of our own personal experiences with medical mistakes:

From the most recent, I went to see a gynecologist and within the first 5 minutes she wanted to remove all my womanly parts, talk about unnecessary surgeries. It was just before Christmas too, she was scheduling for a Merry Christmas for her family perhaps? Turns out I don’t need it at all, I am correcting it myself with natural medicines.

As far as medical mistakes, I have had my fair share.

My husband was told he had stomach problems for years, was given stomach pills. He got these bouts of nausea, vommitting and extreme pain in his abdomen and after the attacks he had extreme weakness and fatigue after. I researched his symptoms and I found that he had either gallstones or pancreatitis. We went back to the dr and he laughed at me when I told him what I thought about his gallbladder and pancreas and said it was stomach problems. He went to a second opinion and we got the same results. The next few attacks were getting worse, the last one was so bad I called the ambulance.

To make a long story short, he had pancreatitis so bad he almost died. He ended up in St Michael’s hospital in Toronto. His gallbladder was so full of stones that it damaged his pancreas. It ate the whole center of his pancreas. Since a pancreas is digestive enzymes, they were spilling into his body basically digesting his organs. They had to cut him open and suck all the poison out of his body, they sewed him back up with 4 drains coming out of him because it was too dangerous to take his gallbladder at the time. Six months recovery and a year later they removed his gallbladder. He has two hernias in his intestines that he has to watch carefully now and had a lot of digestion problems.

I was given the drug Lupron that almost ended my life, see story: http://naturalpainreliefforfibromyalgia.com/583

I had a dentist hammer an implant through my sinus, after about 18+ surgeries, 3 failed implants I ended up losing 3 good teeth to a bridge replacement. Even after many corrective surgeries, the damage was so bad I couldn’t have the implant. The same dentist also put a crown in that I heard crack at the time, it then broke into pieces, got infected and I lost that one too. He got 5,000.00 from me. It will cost me over 10,000.00+ to repair the teeth he damaged.

I now have permanent pain in my sinus, a numb cheek from the nerve they cut when  the surgeon had to take bone from my jaw to try to fix the first dentist errors. They had to cut gum out of my mouth in two places and sew it to the front of the gum to try to fix the mess. I had to have a frenectomy because he left the frenum just hanging in my mouth (that is that little flappy thing between the inside of your lip and your two front teeth.

I went through 5 years of hell and ended up losing 5 teeth instead of receiving one implant. All this because I fell on that center nut on the handle bars on my bicycle when I was a kid. You know the needles in the front and the roof of your mouth were painful enough but that many times was a nightmare let alone the surgeries. They took three perfectly good teeth, ground them down to stick to put the bridge on. Now I have three sensitive teeth that hurt to eat or drink cold water now.

How can someone completely destroy someone like that and not take responsibility for it? Wonder why I don’t trust the medical and dental?
