Season 2; Episode 10. Lily is an Endo warrior and a (MS) Masters of Science & (RD) Registered Dietitian. She has been through quite a journey with pain and fertility. She provides us tips for Endo.
Lily lives in Sunny, California. She is a Registered Dietitian and a Masters of Science!! (She is wicked smart!) I was very excited to chat with her because I have questions about diet, exercise, and products that people with Endo should use to help ease our inflammation.  If you want to listen to Lily's tips skip to 52:00.  * Trigger warning,  fertility, miscarriage, pregnancy discussed in this episode. I asked Lily to share her journey first before we got into her advice. Lily has stage II Endo.  Her pain started early on and was very severe on the first day of her period. She went on birth control for many years, and her period did not come back for 2 years.  Once it did return she was not in a great deal of pain but it did begin to build a few years later. Her symptoms intensified but she thought this was normal.  In her late 20's she wanted to begin to grow her family this is when she really started to notice that something was off.  An ectopic pregnancy leads her to her Endo diagnosis after she had a miscarriage 8 months prior.  At this point, she still did not really understand what Endo means.  Listen in to hear her full journey, and how she is going to have excision surgery soon.  Want to keep the conversation going?  Join our Facebook Group: tiny.cc/7mpbnz Thank you for listening and supporting this podcast.
