I too had an ablation in Sept 08 and have come to regret it every month when my "period" should be rearing it's ugly head. Instead of heavy bleeding. which I don't have anymore, I get such intense lower back and cramping, it feels like I am in labor. This has been going on for almost a year and gets progressively worse as each month passes. I am dreading the end of each month because I know it will be nothing but pain and discomfort. It also causes bloating and gas pains and interrupts my bowel function for those days. I am sorry to hear there are so many who are suffering from this too. I would rather have had the hysterectomy than go throught this. The symptoms are worse now than before the ablation. I would not recommend this procedure to anyone. Thanks for listening:) Good luck to you all!!View Thread
