Hi Ladies!! I had a rough day yesterday!! I went to see a new doctor, he has been treating endo patients for over 30 years. I brought all my records for him to review, anyway to make a long story short he spent almost 2 hours with me, first just discussing my symptoms and my lap that was done in March whein I was diagnosed finally after 9 years!! He then proceeded to do a pelvic exam and ultrasound, he found a "cyst" the size of a TENNIS BALL on my left ovary which is pressing down on my bladder, now I know why I have been peeing so much!! He read my operative report and was very unhappy that all my endo was not removed and per the doctor it was in areas that it should have been removed, so I am now having another surgery due to the cyst he is going to remove and also remove all my endo on the bowel and bladder, and he is also going to either a presacrel neurectomy or LUNA. On top of all that I need to go for a Pelvic MRI for adenomyosis, I am really overwhelmed right now and cannot think straight. I also have to go for a ca 125 blood test and another cancer marking blood test before he will do the surgery!!! Never in my life did I think I was going to have another surgery just 7 months later.. I was very impressed with this doctor and the concern he showed.. Another shocker was that the only option offered to me after my lap in march was LUPRON, which I decided not to do and thank god, the new doctor told me yesterday that Lupron is not a drug I should be treated with!!!!!! I feel like I am in hell right now!!!!! I was also advised by 3 others doctors just to get a hysterectomy, this doctor says NO WAY, I am too young and hysterectomy is not the answer for endo!!!! Anyway enough of my complaining I just want some of the new ladies to read and learn, make sure you research big time before choosing a doctor if you suspect endo or already have it. Thanks for letting me vent, I am just really peed off right now and have so much to think about, please keep me in your prayers, as well as you guys are in mine.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
