PCOS = Polycystic Ovarian Sydrome
Basically this means I have many (poly) cysts in my ovaries. The symptoms include irregular periods, inability to lose weight and wacky hormone levels. I have all three - but apparently I have a mild case, and the fact that I've lost 30kg has gone to help it not being all that severe, which I guess is a good thing. It also explains why I haven't been able to lose weight.
I feel relieved that I finally have a reason as to why I have been stuck on this god aweful plateau for the past year. I mean, all you regular followers would know that I exercise like a mad woman 5 days a week and eat within my restriction with a few (but not all that many) treats here and there... now I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I don't feel like I'm the one who has failed the band, that it's something that I truely can't control and that it's not my fault! Love it!
So what now? well, since PCOS can cause infertility, I'm going to see a specialist about it on Tuesday as hubby and I are trying to get pregnant. I want to know as much as possible about what I need to do and what needs to be done to give me the best chance at getting pregnant naturally.
So join me on this journey as I start it. I'm scared, but I feel armed and ready to face whatever comes my way.
Stories of hope would be greatly appreciated :)
