I had lab work done today at my appointment to confirm what I had pretty much already diagnosed myself with: PCOS...Polycystic Ovary Syndrom. Of course it will take a couple of days for the lab work to come back, but my doctor is so sure that this is the course of my problems that he has already prescribed Metformin for me. I feel better knowing something more concrete, so now it's another bit of a waiting game to see what the Metformin does for me. I can only have confidence that it will help in some way. It all makes sense though and really adds up when I go down the list of symptoms.
If I seem a little bit off or maybe just crazy some days, you can't blame me - my hormones are out of balance, although if this medication works then I won't be able to use that excuse anymore. I do hope that it will help with my weight loss though. One of the side effects of PCOS is difficulty losing weight, and although I've done a really good job in the past year my results are just not near what I wanted them to be. Nick has had awesome results, and mine have only been so-so which was really frustrating because our diets were pretty much the same. Now I realize that this might have been causing some of the problems, and it makes me feel better to know that all the hard work I've been doing has been good enough. I just had an extra obstacle to overcome.
Thank you so much for all the prayers, and continue to keep us in your prayers. Eventually it will all sort itself out...I have to have faith in that.
