Let's make this the best January ever. This is my 12th Sparkversary, so thanks to finally finding a doctor who put me on Metformin, Armour Thyroid, and Bydureon, I've been able to lose weight, with about 20# to go. I fell and broke my femur right below my hip joint in June '17, so I have a titanium rod with screws My bone scan showed I have no osteoporosis. The doctor tells me my bone has healed thanks to my Ultra-Sound stimulator, but I still have problems because of the pins, but I'm dealing with that. . I'm continuing to exercise daily.

I've been a Sparker for twelve years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 44, 35, 32, 30 and 29. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (8), Chanel Ava (7), Lily Dona (7) and Chloe' Renee (5).

My 12th year goal is to EXERCISE daily now that I turned 70 and in my head I'm still 30.

    Yes! My mom had a great deal of trouble with PCOS (and infertility) in the 60s and 70s. I hope you’re doing better now, as she is. Thanks for sharing that on my page!

    Jibbie, thank you for the information you shared with me. That was very interesting. I also take Metformin. When I first started taking it, I was able to lose weight. Then my dr. added Glipizide, which can cause weight gain. It's a little harder to lose weight, but it is doable and I have kept 104 lbs off so far. In 2017, I was having a lot of pain during the same time period of the day for weeks. When the pain became very intense, my son took me to the ER. They did a MRI and told me I had a mass in my Uterus. I went to my GYN Dr. and she said that it looked like it could be fluid there. When she couldn't fix it, she sent me to a GYN Oncologist. He recommended a complete hysterectomy, which he did. I turns out that it was Endometrial Cancer. He told me he got it all and I didn't have to have surgery. Two years later, I find out that I have Cancer again. They call it Stage 1 Recurring Endometrial Cancer. My dr. is very positive that we can get rid of it all. I'm determined to get through this.
