Hi everyone, thanks so much for all the prayers and well wishes!!!!
I had surgery last wed. It was a hysterectomy done by laperotomy (
open inscision, rather than by small holes). It was a 2 hr surgery and my doctor ended up removing my appendix also as it was actually sitting in me upside down! LOL Turns out my ovaries were covered with 5, yes 5 cysts!
The hospital sucked, nurses were horrible. MY ob was great as far as pain management went! He even chewed out my nurse after i complained that she was only giving me half of the dose of med that he ordered! NICE!!!!!
I am home and healing slowly.....still in alot of pain, but it's better than two days ago. Pathology came back saying that my uterus was taken over with my endometriosis. Stage 4 endo! So, im feeling really happy with my decision to do the hysterectomy!
anyways, thanks again to all of you! I hope u all are feeling well today!
