I literally cried when I read this. I have dealt with this mess for so long, I have been very lucky
recently to find your site and now through your help was able to read more info. At times it feels like this is a never ending battle, but it looks like we have a fair chance, maybe fair isn't the right word. A fighting chance.
I have read that it gets worse the longer it has been since the tubal. If my PTS gets much worse it will be unbearable. I spent last weekend yelling at my whole family, and most of this week. I have been so tired I have had to leave work twice in two days. I could not stay awake. My back is killing me, and I haven't been able to focus, hot flashes, and probably the most embarrasing of all
urinary incontinence. I have also had bouts with hypoglycemia, I didn't make the connection with the low blood sugar until I read that many others have experienced this. My Blood Sugar one day was 34, this was checked by another RN via a finger stick (accucheck). Boy do I feel like a winer, but all these things are real and related to the tubal
and I finally have people that actually listen(read) and respond with an understanding ear, and believe. But I am only 34 will be 35 in May, this is not fair!!!!!
Is there a point where it starts to get easier?? At nine and a half years(OCt. 9, 1989) I believe it can't get much worse. I will see the doctor on Tues. I have printed up everything that
has a scientific basis on this Web site and any others that talks about PTS. I will request all the lab work and if necessary will pay for this out of pocket. I do work for the hospital here and if I have to I can ask them to do a payroll deduct
to cover it. I will be able to pay it off in three
months. I will post what the outcome was.
Most of all THANKS for being there!!!!

CPTwomen members have testified in front of the IL and CA Court, the IL Gov. Task Force, the Sunset Review Committee, (Senator Liz Figueroa), NOW, and more. What occurred has been made a matter of public record. The CPTwomen are making public the issues which millions of other women have faced in silence. Issues such as women are not informed at the time of their tubal ligation that there is a risk of hormonal imbalance occurring. For the CPTwomen to continue its mission to move this issue to the forefront of government, we must ask for a small contribution/subscription fee from all those who wish to communicate with us and participate at the Coalition's Bulletin Board
