sugar, it's so encouraging to know you don't regret having the surgery.
i'm not scared of a temporary pain, i'm scared there will be chronic pain for life due to scar tissue/adhesions or some other possible reasons. i'm most scared about the outcome, whether i'll still be constipated or the opposit - i'll go too much, and maybe it will be accompanied with some more issues that are worse than what i'm having now. but, again, if all of these issues are going to be only temporary, then it's ablolutely o.k and of course i can tolerate that.
i know.... every surgery has it's risks and if i decide, then i have to go with positive attitude and hope for the best outcome.
i'm from Israel and when the time comes, it will be in Tel-Aviv. it's gonna take a while, cause i have some tests to do first. my gi wants me to have the zits marker test again and u.s of the pelvic. i also have to see a urogynecologist too, since i'm having some issues with my bladder. nothing too serious, so maybe we won't have to do anything about it. we'll see on Wednesday when i go to him.
