October 2022

This month I continued to heal from my shoulder procedure (January 2022) and learning to live with pain in my right shoulder.

I was also seriously ill with a viral stomach infection and had to rest due to the flu.

My surgery March 2020 - Blog about my endometriosis and PCOS by Sabeena Ahmed

For those that don't know I've been living with painful shoulders for the past 5 years and PCOS/Endometriosis for the last 30 years.

During November 2017 I had my first rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder, and then a year later October 2018 I had the same surgery on my left shoulder.

After a few months of intolerable pain I was addmited to hospital to have a ruptured cyst removed 17th March 2020. This was my third polycystic ovarian surgery since 2004.

Its been a long 5 years of excruciating pain, sleepless nights and slow healing.

I still have bouts of low energy, pain and anxiety/panic attacks.

January 2022 was the month I finally had injections to relieve the pain in my left shoulder.

It's been a long 6 months of healing and I'm trying to keep positive, unfortunately I am experiencing pain in my right shoulder.

I have been to see an orthopaedic consultant this month.

Thank you to all my friends and family who pray for my recovery and good health.

My sister sent me links to webinars about Great Mental Health Day which took place 26th January 2024.

Happy New Year to all my fair trade friends and family around the world.

My right shoulder is still very painful and inflamed again and I have struggled to type this blog.

Despite my pain I managed to attend a webinar and record videos about PIE Community members expressing an interest to join.

I joined a couple of sessions about Mental Health and Suicide Training.
