I regret my hysterectomy, but not for the reasons one would assume….. I was done having kids and I didn’t care about being thrown into early menopause. The reason I regret having one was because now I see that I had other options to combat the pain from endometriosis. That if my doctors had offered me a chance to try what I am using now to win my battle with abdominal adhesions, I may not have had to live with the fallout of a botched hysterectomy and the troubles that still linger from it.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis in spring of 2004. In a way I am lucky that my diagnosis was made in less than a year from the point when I first went to my doctor to discuss my pain. After six months of tracking my pain, an exploratory surgery revealed that I had a giant ovarian cyst. It attached itself to my bladder, uterus, and left fallopian tube and pulled them to my left sidewall. My fallopian tube had actually adhered to the sidewall and had to be cut loose. Sadly the relief from this clean-up only lasted six months.

After tracking my symptoms for another six months I returned to my doctor. At that time he said that a hysterectomy would be my only option. Not wanting to disrupt my family’s life throughout the school year, I asked that we schedule it after school let out for the summer. Knowing I would need the summer to recover, my husband and I decided the family should spend a week at Disneyland before I had surgery. Long story short, I ended up having an emergency appendectomy on our second day and had to postpone my hysterectomy until I had healed. Like I said, that is another story that I will share fully another time…. Anyways, not once was I offered any other solution to my pain other than a hysterectomy and pain medication. So a hysterectomy it was……. The hysterectomy revealed multiple ovarian cysts and a belly full of adhesions pulling all of my internal organs in every direction.
I really wish I had been into researching natural and alternative ways to relieve pain and deal with health issues back then. Had I known that there could have been a way to avoid having a hysterectomy, I would have jumped at the opportunity. The surgery was a disaster. My surgeon left behind a large portion of my left fallopian tube and a $hitload of ovarian remnants. The remnants embedded themselves into my abdominal wall and cervix and the fallopian tube remnant was covered in endometriosis, infected, and embedded into my sidewall. The first follow-up surgery to address my pain and find the beginning of the aftermath took place 2 years after the hysterectomy because 20 surgeons refused to listen to me. It was finally the 21st who didn’t suggest that I see a psychiatrist or blame it on fibromyalgia. Soon before this surgery the adhesions began strangling my bowels. This pain comes and goes, relief could only be achieved via surgery or internal ripping of the adhesions themselves. And yes, both are as painful as you can imagine.
I was told that I would be pain-free after my hysterectomy. After two more surgeries to address the mistakes made in the hysterectomy I was assured that I would no longer know the agony I had been living with. They were wrong!!! The worst part is when the adhesions severely attacked my bowels again in 2016, I was told that there was nothing that could be done for me. My HMO refused to approve surgery, saying that the adhesions would just return. It didn’t matter that they were killing me……… When I asked about ultrasound therapy, they responded with “it is not a known therapy within our network and we will NOT be looking into it”.
My Blue Genie
I love the genie from Aladdin and that is what I think of whenever I look at my PEMF therapy device, Oska Pulse. This beautiful piece of technology has done for me in the past two years, what doctors have been telling me wasn’t possible. In March of 2017, adhesions once again attacked my bowels after a 3 month reprieve. I was as exhausted as I was in pain. At this time I had been using my Oska Pulse a few times a week on my knee after exercising. After talking with someone who was using it to combat pain from endometriosis, I decided to give it try. I began by wearing in on my belly and focusing on the areas that hurt the most. I wore and ran my device every day, from the moment I awoke to the moment I went to bed. Within a few days the swelling and pain decreased. After a week, I no longer felt pain where my hysterectomy scar was and I have had pain there since 2005. Two weeks later and I could sleep on my stomach, something that I hadn’t been able to do since 2004.
What the heck happened?
What my PEMF device has done for me we will never know. Adhesions never show in any test ran by my doctors and surgery would be the only way to see inside. With that said, the relief I have been experiencing is nothing like I have ever felt. My organs are no longer being pulled in unnatural directions. I no longer experience a ripping or bleeding sensation inside my sidewall. Outside of dealing with the fallout of weak abdominal muscles and intestines that have been injured from adhesions, my belly feels almost as good as I did before my first ovarian cyst.
So here is my question…… Why isn’t this being offered to women? Why are women being told that surgery is their only option? And then after they have X amount of surgeries are turned down because they don’t want to put our bodies through more? This simple piece of technology has not only provided pain relief, it addressed the source of my pain!!! And this isn’t the only chronic illness that it has improved for me.

If you are suffering in pain from endometriosis, please consider looking into PEMF therapy. Click here to learn about several different options available. If a hysterectomy didn’t provide you with the relief you thought it would, I highly recommend looking into PEMF therapy. Click here for third party reports about how this type of therapy has helped with numerous illnesses/symptoms. My favorite device is Oska Pulse. Not just because I am an affiliate with them (BTW my discount code DIVA will save you $55.00), but because it is the most portable, affordable, and easiest to use device on the market. But don’t take my word, visit Oska Wellness and see for yourself. I could have possibly avoided 4 surgeries and the errors that have left me with life long injuries had this type of device been available to me. Anyways, take a look and remember, with their 30 day refund policy, you have nothing to lose but pain.
