At this point, I had enough of this and there was no way I was going to go through this crazy Plan B approach.
My Internist was livid and wanted me to get at least 3 opinions from other OBGYN’s. So that is what I did.
At this point I was very skeptical and I became so much more in touch with my body. I realized I really needed to honor and listen to my gut. I should have when I felt distrustful prior to the first surgery. But you know what they say, should’ve, could’ve.
I knew at that moment I needed to truly honor myself and trust what my body reckoned.
After researching the best OBGYN’s I went and got more opinions. Each doctor diagnosed me differently. I was confused again. The only thing which all of the Doctors agreed (very easily might I add) was for me to get a Hysterectomy. That seemed like that was the only solution to my problem.
When I got my first opinion, after the first surgery, the 2nd Doctor said that he was shocked the surgeon went ahead with an out patient surgical procedure based on what he can clearly see on the ultrasound. It was very clear that what I had is Adenomyosis. The Fibroid was a non-issue. To my surprise, that was the first time I ever heard of adenomyosis. Then the 2 other doctors concurred. So basically the first Laparoscopy was completely unnecessary and the Fertility specialist knew it but for the sake of making money he did. Looking back, I made a terrible mistake and trusted my life to a Doctor that really didn’t care how I felt.
I went home frustrated, but something inside of me said don’t give up. So I got my lap top and started researching on various sites googling Hysterectomy options etc… I figured what do I have to lose other than my very important female organs. My ovaries were healthy, I am still ovulating and my hormones are at a healthy level, it just didn’t feel right to get rid of what I feel is a sacred part of a woman’s body, especially if the most of the uterus was healthy. I figured if they can put a man on the moon, I knew there had to be someone out there that was brave enough to step out of the box and make it happen. I knew if I keep looking I would find a miracle. Sure enough I did!
Through all of my persistence and determination to find an alternative, I did!! Dr. Tirso del Junco jr.
When I inexplicably discovered his website, I fine tooth combed the Female Alternative Site. It just sounded amazing. Exactly what I was looking for, or perhaps what my gut lead me to.
Yes the first thing I thought was this is too good to be true. However the coolest part of all is that it’s for real!!
