Haloo.....(gema balik coz takde orang jawab balik)
Sorrylah saya lama tak mengapdet C&B ni.. Awak pun semua tahu saya boleh menaip di kotak "post" di bl0gsp0t ni bila Enche' B lambat ambik saya (Hari ni ekceli kena ganti coz masuk ofis lambat..tapi keje dah habis. Teknikally mmg tunggu Enche' B pun)
So..apa CER?? Hari ni baru buat chek up ngan dokter kesayangan saya di KayPeeJay Kjg. Ingat tak saya cerita pasal IUI tu? Hari ni tak jadi buat (AGAIN) coz follicle saya pecah cepat sangat (immature) tak sesswai untuk buat prosedur tu. Pecah atau hilang, saya pun tak pasti. Terpaksa 'bend'kan lutut untuk di'godek' oleh dokter guna ...(saya tak tau nama dia) tapi hilang tak dijumpai pulak telur yang ditag untuk membesar bersama askar Enche' B.
Saya bila dapat tahu pun macam agak blank. Saya tanya dokter telur tu boleh gerak2 ke? Kejap ke kiri, kejap ke kanan. Dokter cakap tak. Nak buat macam mana, bukan rezeki. Dokter tanya lagi, ada buat tak S.I tak weekend baru ni. Ada, jawab kami malu2 kucing. (S.I bukan Site Investigation). Harap2 dengan kehendakNya adalah yang menjadi mengikut proses semulajadi...AMIN.
Banyak betul halangan saya ni. Orang lain dapat, tapi taknak..buat saya sedih. Kepada kawan saya ni, bersyukurlah coz boleh dapat dengan senang. Tapi saya percaya dan tahu ini semua ketentuanNya, bukan bergantung kepada individu yang lepas cakap sebab saya laser kat individu sebab tu tak dapat anak (kejap break kejap coz kawan sehidup semati saya telefon)...
....haa..yer. Saya percaya apa yang berlaku sekarang ni, adalah yang terbaik untuk saya. Kalau saya ada anak, mungkin saya tak boleh nak habiskan @CC@ saya ni. Mungkin saya tak dapat kenal Enche' B dengan lebih rapat lagi (kami kenal Jun 05, tunang Feb 06, kawin Nov 06.) Tak boleh kenal hati budi, jalan2 laki bini, gaduh2 sesuka hati, main lari2 (rumah kami 2 tingkat. Sila berimaginasi..)
Satu lagi, saya agak kecik hati bila org tanya saya banyak kali kenapa tak ada baby. Lagi kecik hati (geram pun ada) kalau saya dah explain saya ni ada endometriosis, siap explain apa benda tu, pastu tanya lagi.. haih, kang ada benda yang melayang ni..
Oleh itu, saya ada buat research dan jumpa artikel yang baik untuk terangkan apa itu endometriosis. Artikel ini dalam Bahasa Inggeris, tetapi untuk memenuhi kriteria berblog dalam Bahasa Melayu (haa, Matematik dan Sains pun nak kembali dalam Bahasa Melayu, baik kita banyakkan bahan bacaan dalam bahasa kebangsaan kita). Bahan di bawah ini adalah di’translate’ dari website ini.. http://www.gynsecondopinion.com/endometriosis.htm). Kenalah eknolej (maaf, rosakkan bahasa melayu..hehe) kalau tak saya boleh disaman.
Apa itu Endometriosis?
Tisu yang ada di uterus dan digugurkan semasa kitaran haid adalah dipanggil endometrium. Pada sesetengah wanita (sayalah salah seorg tu), tisu yang sama boleh tumbuh di luar uterus, di tempat yang tidak sepatutnya. Bila ini terjadi, endometriosis wujud. Tisu yang selalunya berada di uterus boleh ditemui di dalam atau luar ovari, tiub fallopio, permukaan luar uterus (ini keadaan saya) ataupun di kawasan lain peritoneum. Kadangkala, tisu ini juga boleh berada di bowel atau bladder (sorry, tak tahu perkataan Melayu untuk ini). … Endometriosis juga boleh mempengaruhi kesuburan, dan kira2 30% wanita tidak subur (infertile) didapati menghadapi endometriosis.
Sel di dinding uterus selalunya melalui perubahan kitaran ... (maaflah, paragraph baru ini saya paste sahaja dalam bahasa Inggeris. Lama kalau nak translate, tak buat kerja lain lah jawabnya.)
The lining cells of the uterus normally go through cyclic changes in response to the varying levels of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone produced by the ovary throughout the month. During the menstrual cycle, as estrogen levels rise, the tissue first grows and builds up, and then, as the level of both estrogen and progesterone fall at the end of the cycle, the tissue breaks down and is shed as menstrual blood. When a woman has endometriosis, while the lining cells are present in locations where they are not intended to be, they still respond to hormonal changes in much the same way as if they were still within the uterus.
During the menstrual period, as normal uterine lining cells begin to bleed, the endometrial cells present outside the intestine - endometriosis - also begins to bleed. The blood from these endometrial cells, however, is contained inside the body and accumulates. This accumulation of blood and other substances given off by the endometriosis often causes irritation, and even damage, to the surrounding areas. And, if these cells are present near the uterus, bladder or the bowel, the irritation may lead to pain in those locations. The body's natural response to irritation and injury often ends with the formation of scar tissue, which also increases the likelihood that discomfort will be experienced (see chapter on pelvic pain). The scar tissue can also interfere with the passage of the egg into the tube and lead to infertity. Thus, the abnormal location of uterine lining cells leads to the symptoms and problems that we associate with the condition called endometriosis.
WHAT DOES ENDOMETRIOSIS LOOK LIKE?
The appearance of endometriosis is variable and changes over time. Areas of endometriosis may be small, only a millimeter, or larger than a few centimeters. We think that new endometriosis appears as small, almost clear, raised areas on the surface of the uterus, tubes, ovaries or inside lining of the abdomen. Over time, these areas, called implants, continue to collect the pigment contained in the blood they secrete. As this occurs the areas become pink, then dark red, and finally a dark brown color. The darker areas have often been called "powder burns" because of their color and shape. In order to evaluate a woman for the presence of endometriosis, a careful inspection of the entire pelvis and abdomen must be performed, looking for all the possible apearances of endometriosis, some of which are fairly subtle.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF ENDOMETRIOSIS?
If you have painful periods (ada), chronic pelvic pain (ada) , pain during or after sex (ada), premenstrual backache (ada), painful bowel movements, the sudden onset of pelvic pain, or a problem with fertility (mungkin ada), your doctor will consider endometriosis as one of the possible causes for your problem. On the other hand, many women with endometriosis have no symptoms at all, and the condition may be discovered inadvertently during surgery for another reason.
CAN ENDOMETRIOSIS CAUSE INFERTILITY?
Infertility has long been felt to be associated with endometriosis, but the reason endometriosis might cause difficulty getting pregnant has not been established. In fact, it may be that the cause of the endometriosis may also independently cause infertility. We know that about 5% of women who have had children and request tubal sterilization will be noted to have areas of old endometriosis at the time of their surgery. Therefore, the presence of endometriosis does not, per se, imply that a woman can not get pregnant.
However, it does appear that the chance of getting pregnant is decreased somewhat if you have endometriosis, and the more endometriosis you have, the less likely you are to get pregnant. Endometriosis appears to start as small areas of abnormally situated endometrial lining cells. As the tissue grows and bleeds, scar tissue forms around it, increasing the amount of damaged tissue. The scar tissue may even grow around the tubes and ovaries in a way that blocks the passage of the egg down the tube.
The probability of a healthy woman getting pregnant is about 25% per month. For women with mild endometriosis, where the endometriosis is present in small amounts and has not caused any scarring, the pregnancy rate is about 7% per month. For women who have severe endometriosis, where extensive scarring, blockage of the fallopian tubes, and large cysts (cysts saya tak besar sangat, alhamdulillah) in the ovaries are present, it is not hard to understand why pregnancy rates are extremely low without treatment.
HOW CAN ENDOMETRIOSIS BE DIAGNOSED?
Endometriosis may be suspected if tender, thickened areas are felt near the uterus on a pelvic examination. If an ovarian cyst is present, sometimes a sonogram may exhibit the patterns suggestive of an endometrioma, and the diagnosis may then be suspected. Unfortunately, we do not have any test presently available that can reliably predict whether or not endometriosis is present. Neither sonography, MRI, CT scan or blood tests are accurate in this regard.
The diagnosis of endometriosis can only be confirmed by looking at the pelvic organs at the time of surgery. Areas with the characteristic appearance of endometriosis can then be seen. Usually a minor surgical procedure, called laparoscopy, is performed under general anesthesia for this purpose. A small lighted instrument is inserted through the navel, and the surgeon looks through the instrument directly or, with the aid of a camera attached to the laparoscope, the pelvis can be projected on a TV screen. (Saya dah buat dah, check)
At times, the diagnosis of endometriosis is made during a laparotomy, abdominal surgery which is performed under either general or regional (such as epidural) anesthesia. The incision in the abdomen ranges from approximately two to five inches in length. This abdominal surgery may be needed when a large endometrioma has been identified by the sonogram or if a pelvic mass of uncertain cause is found on examination. In addition, endometriosis may be incidentally found during an abdominal surgery performed for another reason, such as fibroids, an ovarian cyst or even surgery for appendicitis. (Ini tak silap kalau kes yang lebih kompleks)
Treatment is aimed at reducing the symptoms of endometriosis, usually either pain or infertility. Treatment is divided into three paths - observation, medication, or surgery.
OBSERVATION: IS ANY TREATMENT NEEDED FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS?
Women who have minimal or mild endometriosis and do not have pain may not require any treatment other than careful follow-up. In practice, however, if the diagnosis of endometriosis is made during laparoscopy, most gynecologists will burn or cut away these cells. However, a few studies have demonstrated that this treatment of mild endometriosis does not enhance fertility. For women with mild endometriosis, fertility rates are good even if no treatment is performed.
CAN MEDICATION BE USED TO TREAT ENDOMETRIOSIS?
It is known that estrogen causes endometriosis to grow. Endometriosis is extremely rare before a young woman begins to produce estrogen and starts to have periods and the disease usually disappears after menopause, when estrogen production stops. Therefore, one goal of treatment with medication is to lower, or stop, the production of estrogen. Reducing the levels of estrogen "starves" the endometriosis and causes it to shrink and sometimes even disappear. Two classes of drugs have been developed which lower the amount of estrogen in a woman's body - Danocrine and GnRH agonist (see details in our book). Progesterone can also be used to treat endometriosis. (Saya telah pun disuntik dengan GnRH selama 6 bulan. Tahun lepas, saya tinggal puasa sehari jer sebab cucuk. Kenapa boleh tak tinggal puasa? Sebab tak period la beb)
WHAT IS CONSERVATIVE SURGERY?
Conservative surgical treatment is considered when a woman needs surgery for pain or infertility associated with endometriosis, and she desires to preserve her pelvic organs. The goal of this approach is to remove as much endometriosis and scar tissue as possible and restore the uterus, tubes, and ovaries to their normal positions. Conserative surgery can be performed using laparoscopic surgery or an abdominal incision. Newer modalities involving laparoscopic surgical techniques and use of instruments such as lasers have allowed for surgery to be performed through very small incisions with the benefit of a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery time.
However, laparoscopic surgery requires special training, expertise, and experience on the part of the surgeon. Conservative surgery may provide a cure, but it may also provide only temporary relief of symptoms. A woman may elect to have conservative surgery in order to complete her family, and then, at a later time, she may elect to undergoing radical surgery. And, some women may require more than one conservative surgical procedure before they need to have, or are willing to consider, a more extensive operation. Yet, for some women, multiple conservative operations may provide relief of symptoms.
If a patient undergoes a conservative surgical procedure for infertility, her chance of getting pregnant is related to the amount of endometriosis found at surgery. Women who have mild endometriosis have about an 80-90% chance of becoming pregnant within 5 years whether they have the endometriosis removed surgically or not. Women who had moderate endometriosis treated surgically have about a 60% chance, and women with severe disease have about a 35% chance of getting pregnant.
