Back problems while expecting? That doesn't sound like fun. When is your EDC? I saw your question about ADs. APs might be safer. I won't mention ECT. We'll just pray that the depression doesn't get that bad.
At least complete hysterectomies can be done laporascopically. Not sure about lobotomies -:)
We have one endocrinologist here. Next closest is 250 miles away, so no, I haven't checked with one. Yesterday my pDoc suggested a doc that has some interest and apparent expertise with PMDD and perimenopause. My appointment isn't until Dec. My gyn appointment is now rescheduled since they made it with the wrong doc - my old one that I have trouble communicating with! More time for research and reflection.
One comment on Health A toZ was that women who've had total hyterectomies have twice as much depression as other women. They didn't mention what HRT they were or weren't taking. I need to sort some info out before I make any radical decisions. Thanks for helping me put on the brakes. I don't want to do something permanent that might make this worse.
P.S. Please take good care of yourself and that precious little one
> Hi Chris,
> Have you seen an endocrinologist yet? (Closest to an OB psychiatrist- my IVF doc who has written textbooks in endocrinology). I DO understand the desperation of resorting to surgical intervention but I hope you don't resort to that. Just last week I had to see a neurosurgeon for herniated discs and half kiddingly asked if he did lobotomies. You have my prayers- Judy
