Welcome Amanda!

 

I had a hysterectomy -- not total -- 12 years ago due to cancer - wasn't diagnosed with Celiac until 4 years ago after decades of numerous symptoms.

 

IBS is a collection of symptoms that are often the same as those with missed or un-diagnosed Celiac Disease.

 

Let us know if we can help :)

Another "IBS" and hyster-sister right here. Total hysterectomy after years of miscarriages and the early menopause from hell. 

 

Those symptoms you're having may all be celiac-related.  Tell us more!  (that "IBS" I had for most of my life--all gone)

Yep, IBS all my life and hysterectomy at age 49 following an unpleasant period where I was in peri menopause, my then indiagnosed celiac was shifting into high gear, and I had fibroids, endometriosis and addenomyosis.

Let us know how we can help-- there is light at the end of this tunnel:)

.......and that light is not an oncoming train, we promise! :)

 

Me, too, P--I was 47 and those fibroids, endo, cysts, etc can wreak havoc with the intestines. Adhesions can make a mess, too.My entire pelvic floor was deeply impacted and I had to have "special PT" to make things right. Not fun.

Not at all <_< I had a similar mess going on in there--the surgeon had to deviate from the planned procedure because the endo had attached itself outside the reproductive area.  Looking back, I wish I had had it done 10 years prior. (the famous hindsight B) )

Does anyone else have severe IBS?? I'm on 3 different IBS meds now and I'm even having a complete hysterectomy.

what is the reason for the hyst?  what out comes are being hoped for?  If you haven't tried gluten free, I would give it a go first.

I'm 31 and I've been gluten free for almost a year, not only with my food but w/ every products. I've always have had a history w/ my periods I.E. small clots cysts bad cramps. But since the IBS dx the clots are now the size of cutie oranges, severe watery D, and vomiting. I lost 5lbs in 3 days and was extremely weak. With an active 5 year old I can't afford to go down like that.

My gyno office called this evening to say that BCBS decided to deny my surgery at the last minute :(. If I was a betting gal I would say the person whom denied it has male plumbing! Now they have my doc and I jumping through hoops and dang it my muscles hurt to much to keep jumping not to mention girls w/ big boobs aren't ment to jump!!!

Ok...I feel a lil better now after venting.

What about an ablation?  have you tried anything to suppress ovulation for an extended period of time? have had a D/C?    It makes me very nervous when a doc is going for the hyst in a person so young.

Good luck!  Try not to worry.  I have both IBS and had hysto when I was in my early 40's, it's not as bad as you think.  Let us know how you get on.

It's like it can sense the need to go into a cycle and can't and my bowel become inflame still killing my lower back.

Thanks every1. I was never worried about having the hysto I was kind of looking forward to it lol, I was just wondering if it helped w/ the IBS or was hoping for to much. I know it's not a cure but I would be grateful for a 1% improvement....

Amanda, many times it can help with IBS symptoms, especially in the case of endometriosis.

I had my surgery after I had been gluten-free for 2 years. My bowel symptoms improved a lot in those 2 years, especially after I identified some additional food intolerances and cut those from my diet.

I can say that the monthly pain and diarreah that always accompanied my period went away, never to return.

I hope you sail through your surgery, recovery, and feel much, much better. I am betting you will:)

    • We were in Santorini and Athens in August 2015.   We found eating gluten free easy in Greece.   Their cuisine involves fairly simply ingredients, olive oil, salt, and herbs.   My celiac daughter can eat almost all the grilled meats and vegetables.   Obviously you have to avoid the pita.   Also, be careful of the gyro meat, because some places threw beer in their marinade.   My daughter enjoyed lots of grilled fish, seafood, and meats there. We found the Greeks very friendly and accommodating, when we explained that we have to avoid gluten, the servers knew what that is, and were happy to accommodate us. Airport is different.   I have the habit of calling the airline a couple of week before the flight to make sure they have gluten-free meals for my daughter.   But I always pack backups for long flights.
    • You'll get to the point where you can eat other things, you just have to give it time. Can you do eggs? Hard boiled eggs. They make fast snacks and are highly portable. If you make nut butters, you can just eat it by the spoonful.  I don't like "normal" coconut macaroons, too wet for me, ick! I found this recipe though which drives me insane --- sooooooo good I about swallow my tongue. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/toasty-coconut-macaroons-recipe-1912139 Don't know if you like them or not but re-fried beans. I NEED my carbs!!!!! If I don't get carbs, I will get weak & shaking 30 minutes after eating. I can't eat every 30 minutes!!! So I eat a lot of re-fried beans. I make a big vat & then portion into containers & freeze. If you have or get a stick blender, it will make super fast work of mashing those beans up. Only takes 2 minutes or less. I use olive oil in mine & lots of it -- need that fat. 
    • Coconut, almond butter, and cocoa nib fat bombs...I use plant fats to do it. You can make some great snacks out of fresh almond butter, shredded or coconut flour, and cocoa nibs. Sweeten with stevia for little dough like balls of goodness. Oh you miss potato chips, two options here I like to make my own protein chips with pea protein, or I can have 2-4 protes chips (vegan pea protein  chips made by a company) but they have to be eaten in moderation. Coconut chips....yeah I get Lets' Do Organic ones I can snack on a hand full of them or throw a handful of cocoa nibs in my mouth for snacks. If you like meat, try making jerky. get a dehydrator season your own and just do it.....lucky you can eat meat. I miss making roast in a crock pot....I used to make some of the best shredded meats. My old smoker.....I could make some of the best ribs and roast EVER. The jerky can be made and taken for snacks on the road or while out, crack open a can of spinach (canned unsalted delmonte does not bother me) or pack some stewed greens and have some jerky tear it up stir it in canned keto on the go. Other lovely thing are tuna and salmon if the canned bother you I often find them too salty to enjoy I have taken some and smoked it or dipped it in liquid smoke then cooked in a baking dish then loaded in to the dehydrator. I find doing this I can have that little bit of fish when I want without worry of spoilage (sucking on it and chewing it for a long time make it really satisfying for me) ....SOO doing this next week to try the fish again. Speaking of fish...since I perfected keto bread in my bakery this month......I think I might try making a tuna sandwich with avacado mayo....not had a tuna sandwich in over 5 years.....
    • I am a newly diagnosed celiac and am traveling abroad for the first time since starting the diet. I will be going to Greece in the spring. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for eating gluten free abroad or at airports? Thanks! 
    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
