    13) Recovering From My Second Surgery and Moving Forward With A New Plan

    I am currently just over two weeks post surgery and I am recovering very fast. I am going back to work earlier than planned, as I feel so well. I feel like it will be good for me to get back to a normal life and be at work. Sitting at home and thinking about everything all day is no fun. The second surgery did not go to plan, as you are already aware, but I do have news regarding the next surgery and the plan moving forward. Lots of you have been asking me for an update, following my appointment with the new consultant, so I am sharing this news with you.  Read more

    10) Living With Shelly On Zoladex: By Chris Wright

    Its 2 degrees… it’s freezing… we’re driving, en route to go and look at a house, and Shelly has her window open, like ALL the way down, jumper off, going a bright red and she tells me she is sweating… I can’t see the sweat yet, but I believe it.

    The freezing air is flooding the car… I’m in the worlds thickest jacket, got my scarf on and I’m shivering. I am freezing.

    I look at her, and say… that blog post you want me to write… this moment sums it up. Let’s take a picture… she refused. We started laughing, for like 20 seconds, then she went to anger and told me to stop taking the piss…. I wasn’t, I promise. But I had apparently gone from comedian to worlds worst husband in like 20 seconds. Read more

    8) A Wonderful Week Away In Mauritius With The Family

    We have just returned from a wonderful week away in Mauritius with my family, celebrating Big Daddy’s 70th Birthday. This much needed break away couldn’t have come at a better time for Chris & I and my family. It was the perfect opportunity for us to get away and escape all the dramas that life has thrown at all of us recently! Spending time with my family is one of my most favourite things to do. Feeling completely comfortable (especially as I feel negative towards myself at the moment) and making memories with my favourite people….what a wonderful week! It’s amazing how much a tan can help you to feel instantly better about yourself….even when is it now all peeling off due to getting burnt 🙁

    4) The Medical Menopause – The Truth!!!

    How do other women get through it? It is quite frankly horrific!

    I had my third implant on 5th January 2018 and I am not sure how my symptoms can get any worse. I had an emotional breakdown while I was with the nurse, her name is Pat and she is a wonderful lady. Pat didn’t seem shocked as she probably sees it everyday! She informed me that I will probably experience worse symptoms again. Great news! Read more

    3) Recovery, The Start Of The Menopause & Family Celebrations

    Recovering from a laparoscopy isn’t too fun…..although it is a fairly non-invasive procedure the air they put in your abdomen causes all kinds of issues. Firstly I really struggled to wee…..never an issue I have experienced before as it turns out that having endometriosis on your bladder makes you want to wee constantly!!! (although I only just realised this was the reason for my constant need to wee). Secondly I looked around 20 weeks pregnant due to the bloating…..which was a low point for me, as it made me more aware of the bump I was missing out on.  Read more

    2) Surgery Day & Bad News

    I went into hospital on the morning of 6th November 2017 for my surgery, feeling excited about the prospect of being fixed and planned to get pregnant soon after. Fortunately, as I work in a hospital I was not too worried or scared about the operation, as I knew it was very common and I had a great team of people looking after me. I had done a lot of research into endometriosis and decided that I couldn’t possibly have it severely as I didn’t have severe pain or excessive bleeding. So I assumed all would be ok, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.  Read more
