When I was 30 years old, I was diagnosed with PCOS. I am one of the lucky ones - I have 2 beautiful children. I am now 39, run 3 miles per day and consume approx. 1400 cal/day. I continue to have extremely irregular periods = I can miss 2 months and then bleed like crazy for 3 weeks at a time. I have put on 30 pounds in the last year and I cannot blame my diet. Both parents have DMII and HTN and my mom is a survivor of both uterine and breast CA - so hormones are not an option. I have failed Glucophage tx twice.
When I bring up a TAHBSO to my GYN, he rolls his eyes at me. With all my risks and my family history, wouldn't I be a perfect candidate for this?
I'm just frustrated and wonder if anyone else has had this procedure and if it helped.
I am a health nut and don't want to die fat, insulin-dependent and hairy. It is very sad to have to shave every day like my husband.....
you will need to discuss this with a health care professionaly
if your OB rolls his eyes then i seriously would consider switching drs. he works FOR YOU so YOU tell him what you want to know. and if he cant help you like you want to be helped then you can swicth at the drop of a hat
