uhhhhhhh...


i had my surgery yesterday, and everything is going to be fine. however, i am in a LOT of pain and i'm all drugged up. all i can do is lie here with my trusty tablet pc, so i figured i may as well blog. if anyone cares about the details...i have endometriosis, which is bleeding scar tissue that forms on the walls of the uterus and other girly organs. i dealt with a lot of pain fora lot of years, and it was just time to have it taken care of. so, i did. the past few days have been quite rough, so i'm glad all the x-rays, prep for the surgery (ladies, if you've ever had to "prep" for this kind of surgery, you know EXACTLY what i'm talkin' about), and the actual procedure, which was the removal of that scar tissue, are over. they thought i was going to need 4 incisions, but i only got 2. and one is in my belly button, so it won't be noticed. i am just SO glad this is done, you have no idea. i have been losing it emotionally for weeks, and now i can just pop my painkillers and breathe a sigh of relief. if i hadn't done this, my chances of ever having a baby were really bad, too. so, yay! and i just totally love everybody right now...my friends and family have been so suppportive and caring and sweet and wonderful. :) i am a lucky girl.

anyway...

Hey.

Glad to hear (read) that your surgery went fine. Get some rest and just chill out for a couple of days. There may be some DVDs coming your way to borrow and watch during your rest/time-out/chill-out/recovery-time.

Hey Mondo - My wife had the same surgery too about a year ago except she had to go to the emergency room and only found out through exploratory surgery. Your in my thoughts and you'll be back up on your feet in no time.

i am so surprised at how many women have endo! thanks for the well-wishes, shankey. if your wife had to go to the ER because of it, then you know the deal. people say that the pain is worse than childbirth. so, even the pain i'm in right now is nothing compared to the pain i experienced before.

what really sucks is that it comes back in 1-3 years...insane.

and mark---DVDs will be mucho appreciated! especially if it's what i think it is... :)
