Since Sept 2016, after ceasing to breastfeed her son, this 41-year-old woman suffered from severe cramps (pain rating 9-10) and excessive bleeding during menses. She also had continuous daily pelvic pain (rating 5-9) that was radiating down the left leg to her ankle. In mid-2017, she was diagnosed with endometriosis and osteoporosis of the left hip. She was always fatigued and had been struggling to keep up with her daily activities for over three years and only managing with painkillers. In May 2020 she started to notice spotting between periods. Three months later, an ultrasound test revealed a 1.9 cm ovarian cyst. On 23 Aug 2020, she consulted the practitioner who gave:
For endometriosis and ovarian cyst:
#1. CC8.4 Ovaries & Uterus + CC8.7 Menses frequent…TDS in water
For pelvic & leg pain and osteoporosis:
#2. CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC15.1 Mental & Emotional tonic + CC18.5 Neuralgia + CC20.4 Muscles & Supportive tissue + CC20.6 Osteoporosis…TDS in water
After one month, she felt 50% reduction in all her pains. In another month, she experienced normal menses and 100% relief from all the pains. This helped her to take on volunteer work at the local Sai Centre that she was unable to do earlier. Dosage of #1 and #2 was reduced to BD. After two weeks ultrasound test on 5 Nov showed no evidence of an ovarian cyst. On 30 Nov the dosage was further reduced to OD before stopping the remedy on 11 Dec 2020. As of April 2021, there has been no relapse of symptoms and she is pain-free, feeling energetic, strong and cheerful with the joy of life.
