Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome
Monday, May 26, 2008
My name is Dawn, and I'm a PTLS (Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome) sufferer.
About 2 years ago, I did a post about Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome over on my personal blog. As a sufferer I wanted to get the word out about this condition and what it means for women who suffer from this condition.
Never in my wildest dreams did I expect the response I got to that post. Even today, two years on, I get regular comments from women who say thank you for sharing, and convincing them that these symptoms aren't all in their heads like the doctors told them. I get around 4 or 5 comments a week to that post, and as of now, it's ranked number 3 on Google when you do a search for Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome, a tribute to the hundreds of women looking to put a name to their symptoms.
This post is to say welcome. If you are a sufferer, or know of anyone else suffering from PTLS, come say hi. We can only spread the word about this condition if we step forward and say "Yes, this is what I have!"
I look forward to saying hi to you all.
