Any woman crossfitter dealing with Endometrioses help me out?

I have struggled with endometrioses and need some advice regarding Endometrioses and Crossfit trainning, is there anything I need to becareful with? Regarding the weight I lift, for example. I myself weigh around 110, so I have no problem gaining.
I am aware of the nutrition part and endometrioses, but do I have to becareful with lifting too much?
I had a hysterectomy and still have my ovaries, but my intestines have grown together with my pelvic walls twice, so now am under recovery and am looking forward for some crossfit sweat and advice. Hope someone can shed some light on this issue, thanks.

In addition to any advice you get here, you should definitely talk to your doctor.

Re: Any woman crossfitter dealing with Endometrioses help me out?

I would highly, highly recommend paying a visit to the foremost specialist in endo who practices in Bend, OR - Dr. Redwine. I had had multiple surgeries before visiting him because it kept coming back, and that last surgery with him has resolved all of my problems. I don't have painful periods anymore, and went on to be able to have two children.

He excises the patches rather than burning him away and has a very high success rate (meaning a very low recurrence rate). The day I had my surgery, there was a woman from Florida and another from Japan - women come from all over the world.

I ran track and did weight lifting and to my knowledge it didn't hurt or exacerbate the endo. However, talk to your doc who knows you and the disease better than me! Good luck!
