I've been feeling some strange pain in my pelvis. It isn't the same pain that I felt when Mr. JB rushed me to the hospital a few weeks ago. I'm pretty convinced that it isn't the same pain as I had with the abscess. I'm sore in the front part of the lower pelvis.

Perhaps it's my ladyparts waking up from their estrogen-deprived slumber. Perhaps it's just healing pain. I have no idea.

I shouldn't worry too much about it being abscess-related. The antibiotics that I'm taking should kill anything bad that's growing inside of me. The one thing that I got out of my wasted trip to my surgeon was that my meds are REALLY strong.

What I am noticing is that I have more cervical mucus and I'm also feeling like how I used to when I am about to get my period. I've been feeling so tired despite sleeping enough at night. I had to drag myself off of the couch so I could make dinner. I'm usually someone with quite a bit of gitty-up, if you know what I mean.

Am I premenstrual? Am I coming off of the L.upron? Any advice or opinions would be appreciated.

p.s. I took my car in for an oil change today and the mechanic checked my engine light (it's been on since the end of August). I also had some work that I deferred a couple of months ago because we just couldn't afford it. Today's price tag was $1500. Ouchie again!


  1. Funny..I had my car in for a "check engine" light too! Of course, mine ended up being a missing gas casket! I guess I left it at the gas station..ugh. But I was also 2 months past inspection..so it cost me 600$. Car repairs are never cheap.
    Hope you start to feel better.

  2. I'm sick of pain! Why do we all have so much of it??

    I hope you feel better soon and that is it just your lady-parts waking up!!

  3. I really have no idea. None. Whatsoever.
    But I'm hoping it's just healing pain, like you said... body parts waking back up and gettin' a move on. Sounds good to me!!

    As long as it doesn't feel like the pain you had a couple weeks ago... s'all good.

    Hey, JB, I have an idea. Let's get pg together this month!! Whadd'ya say?!!

  4. I have assvice about the first ouchie, but that 2nd - whew can I ever sympathize.

  5. Sorry about the pain! I hope it goes away quickly.

  6. Hmmm...I do wonder if it is those organs waking up? Are you charting yet? It might be good for you to start noting when and where you have pain.

    Ouch with the car!

  7. ouch indeed. I hope that it is all okay!

  8. The past year or so has been rough on us car-wise, so I feel that pain. I hope the ouchie is just your lady-parts waking up.

  9. I hope your period shows soon.

    I wish there was a cheap option for car repairs!

  10. UTI?

    If the timing says you're coming off the lupron, I would expect significant emotional symptoms. Fatigue wasn't how I did it, but it could be a variant - why not?

  11. Oh my goodness. I wish I had an answer for you, but sadly, all I can say is that it could be any of the above, or none of the above. I have no clue what the pain is.

    I do hope it goes away very, very soon!

    So sorry about that repair bill!!!

  12. I'm so sorry for your pain, I hope you
    feel better soon!

    that will cheer you up!
