Just now opening my answer. Thanks for the info and yes I do have high tryglycerides and cholesterol and it is a family trait. I do drink on average 3 to 4 glasses of wine per "month" so not very often. I have an appt with gastro Dr for thursday. And I already do weight bearing exercise but only twice a week...I need to go more often but I have been so fatigued and having upper abdomen pain for about 2 weeks. I also have high bp and it has been elevated also during these 2 weeks. My husband and I had already started a plant based diet so maybe that will help get me well. As I am very scared of statins and osteoporosis medication. I try for the hoilstic approach...obviousy not working though. lol
Thanks so much you have been more than helpful and yes I give blood 2-3 per year (so that means I don't have Hep C?) they call me everytime there is a blood drive due to my blood type (O-). Dr has also ordered pelvic ultrasound. So I guess all bases are being covered. I have the vaginal mesh (really the urologist says mine is a sling for the uretha and very small) but I have also wondered about that causing the pain. But thanks so much and I will definitely use this site again.
