3x Thursday: Its My Body!

3x Thursday: Your Human Body
Hosted by The Hair Metal Queen

1. Are you generally healthy? Do you have anything that requires a regular perscription of some sort?
Over the years I have been seeing a doctor for all my female problems. However, I have not been to the doctor since August 2007 because I simply cannot afford it and the little amount of insurance I have does not cover my issues.

In August 2007 I had surgery after years of bleeding, pain, stress, depression and ect. The doctor gave me the test results on August 10, 2007. He said I have endometrial hyperplasia (a little information about it below). He stated he would use medication to treat it and in November 2007 I was to go back for another biopsy...I have not been able to go back. At the time of those test the results were benign.

I also have fibroids and cycts on my ovaries...all of this is very painful and stressful. But I must continue on with day-to-day living.

You can read more about it on WebMD:

"Various conditions both benign and cancerous (malignant) can affect the uterus, the hollow, pear-shaped organ where a baby grows. Fibroid tumors on the uterine wall are benign (not cancerous), and women who have them are not at increased risk for uterine cancer. Abnormal growth of cells in the uterus' lining -- called the endometrium -- is called endometrial hyperplasia. It is the most serious benign uterine condition, and in some women it evolves into uterine cancer."

2.Do you react okay to drugs your doctor gives you when you have an infection or a condition?
I react good to drugs that the doctor gives me. I just wish I could afford to go back to the doc for refills.

3. Have you ever had a bad experience/allergic reaction to any drugs you've been given by a doctor?
Not that I can remember.
