Just trying to keep a log of how things have changed since removal and to share my experiences.
Time has went by pretty fast, 5 weeks already! I am on my 2nd period since removal(26 day cycle), this one seems to be the same as the last- so far(heavy, blood clots for the first few days and I have slowed today), no major cramping but quite a bit of bloating. But to know that my body is on a better course now relieves me and I am not complaining about my period!!
I have noticed I dont loose as much hair from my head now when washing, brushing, etc. But I cant tell if I have any new regrowth. My kids still think I am thin where my center hair part is though!
Acne has slowed tremendously, not even bad right before my period.
I do have some nerve damage that involves both lower extremities , with my left leg being worse but I can tell you that my pain has lessened majorly. Before I was constantly in pain and my left leg would give out quite often. But it still gets more noticeable about 1 week before starting my period. I find it strange but its been like that for about 5 yrs now.
I cant really tell you about my mental status changing(no more rage, extreme mood swings,etc) since removal because a couple weeks after I started experiencing anxiety/panic attacks and decided to go on a med. But for the first week after removal I was great, then I think I had a "crash" and it was downhill from that. So I am pretty sure the med is what is keeping me together right now.
Weird thing happened about a week ago. I was just walking from my kids' rooms back to the living room and got very dizzy, had to grab the couch and then just fell to the my knees because I swore I was going to just pass out. I've had dizzy spells in the past while with Mirena and right after removal, but this time I was almost to the brink of passing out, never have gotten that far before.
Maybe it was because I was getting ready to start my period and it was like a "crash" symptom?? I dont know.
