I’m getting questions about my upcoming surgery and I forget that not all my family and friends are on Facebook!
So here’s the scoop:
I have a condition called Adenomyosis. Basically I have fibroids in my uterus which are causing some pain and other problems. This has been going on for a couple years now and last year I tried an ablation procedure, which unfortunately didn’t help. The only “real” remedy is to have a hysterectomy.
The good news is that I can have a laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy which will leave my ovaries in place and not force me into menopause or require that I take hormones for the rest of my life. So all should be good there. The other good news is that recovery for LSH is much shorter than for a traditional surgical hysterectomy, so I only need to take 2 weeks off work instead of 4-6.
Having said all of that, my surgery is scheduled for mid-February. You can email me for the specific dates. We try not to advertise periods of time where we are all away from our home….which is VERY hard for me as much as I enjoy blogging and enjoy Facebooking! I so badly want to say, “We’re having a great time at the beach!” or “Two weeks until Disneyland- can’t wait”. Know what I mean? Not good to tell the world when you aren’t home.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to it. Yes, even the overnighter in the hospital and eating the hospital food. I’m looking at this as a mini-vacation. Peace and quiet in my house, the kids will be in school, I can sleep in, I can take naps, ahhhhhh……
