Not so many years ago I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer; I was not a happy camper to discover that I would have a hysterectomy at such a young age. Although I have two kids already, I prayed to have been able to hold on to the option for another if we so chose. It is a bizarre feeling to realize that you will no longer have children in particular when it is not your choice.
In the early stages of my struggle I was mandated a regiment of treatments that required radiation and chemotherapy. The chemo Wasnt very bad at the start yet as time went on it was apparent it was altering my body. I realize it can kill cancer but it felt like a fight to the end was happening within my body and the outcome would either be me or the cancer. I have long thought there must be a healthier way to deal with fighting cancer. Possibly someday the cure will be made accessible to us, but until then I will only suppose that if there is a natural un-patentable treatment out there, the medical and drug industry will keep a lid on it..
In time I was able consider myself cancer free and the emotion of relief had covered me from top to toe. However as rapidly as I had found this fresh reprieve I discovered a fresh setback had taken its place.
Prior to cancer I had a comparatively ordinary sleep pattern. I would go to sleep, get up perhaps once for a bath room break and go back to bed to finish with a full nights rest. Yet after the therapy and the operation I found myself tossed into a new world of hysterectomy menopause.
Now with this menopause came its cousin, manpausal night sweats, and a entire line of other problems. If I were to tell you all of the connected issues included I might go on ceaselessly. The night sweats were enough. They would keep me up all night plus cause my partner to lose countless hours of rest as well. Finally it caused my partner to relocate to another room. I had to discover an solution. These night sweats were destroying me and my relationship.
I tried several solutions to my dilemma and tried just about every organic and un-natural treatment obtainable. I tried chilly pillows, I tried absorbing nightgown, I tried unusual sheets, you name it I tried it. I was just about to quit when a colleague of mine gave me a device known as a Bedfan. Now to be rather honest with you as she said it over the phone I was thinking she said Bed Pan so I was a touch taken back given that I could not figure for the life of me exactly how a Bed Pan was going to help with night sweats.
Anyway, the Bedfan came to be the hero I was trying to find. In order to make clear how it works I will take a quote from one of the first users of the fan. One woman said it was like cooling off beneath a waterfall and not getting wet at all. That is exactly how it felt. From that first night on I in no way had night sweats over again. Now dont misunderstand I can sense my body getting warmer and only from routine for a time I expected to begin sweating, yet it in no way happened.
They say that the way this thing works is, as soon as your body starts getting hot, your bed is not able to get rid of that heat immediate enough. By way of the Bedfan the heat is pushed out of the bed, never giving it a occasion to increase to sweating. Here is how it feels; the next time you are laying in bed and you begin to feel muggy, just raise up your legs to raise the sheets up high. After that gradually let your legs down and feel that puff of air glide across your body to cool it down. this is the way it feels all night long.
At last I find myself disappointed that I can no longer create children but at least I am still breathing. Not only am I still breathing but credit to the Bedfan, I am able to sleep better than before and acquire the relaxation I require so that I can still have quality time with the wonderful kids I do have. I trust this helps others as much as it has me and my companion.
