Quoting :" If your willing to tell id love to hear. Google has nothing and id like some kind of information. The ... [snip!] ... The only things ive seen the blood clots are tiny. Mine is HUGE. Your welcome to message me if you dont wanna post!"
It started when I had a period and kept bleeding.... and more bleeding. I have ALWAYS had big blood clots and I started to think something was weird even for me. One night I stood up after going pee and almost passed out when I saw a blood clot the size of my hand outstretched. I knew something was seriously wrong.
So we went to the doctor and by that time I ruined so many clothes because I could put a pad on and 30 minutes later was bleeding. I was sleeping with towels under me and doubling up on the thickest pad I could. I was always tired. Id wake up to get Lily ready for school, would then go back to sleep until I had to get her. Id take another nap an hour later. I couldnt breathe well.
I went to my doctor and he literally took one look at me, pressed his thumb at the top of my cheek (like near the under part of your eye) and said "You are severely anemic." Apparently if you press your finger there and pull away and still see the imprint it shows you are very anemic. We did a blood draw and he said he had no idea how I was functioning... I was almost hospitalized I was so anemic. The ONLY reason I wasnt hospitalized is that it can take months to recover from anemia and he knew Id be more comfy from home. So I was under a strict rest and diet regiment.
I also had to have a surgery where they went in through my uterus and took out all the polyps. That was the first surgery Ive had where I was knocked out. I had the mirena placed after to help keep them at bay. HOWEVER now we think the mirena is the cause for my cysts and Ive had surgery for those. So Im hoping once I get the mirena out I dont get the polyps again because I was severely sick. Words can not explain how tired, dehydrated, and run down I was. I did let it go on for too long though ad it took ages to recover.
