I had my post-op appointment last Friday and she said the pathology report confirmed that I did indeed have Adenomyosis. Basically a condition that causes fibroids in the uterus, which makes the uterus enlarge. As a result of the surgery I have a flatter belly and have lost 2 pounds! I wonder what other organs I can have removed! =o)
And an interesting story: my belly button is different. Not that I expected it to be exactly the same since there would be an incision across it, but it’s totally different. And I found out why! At the post-op appointment I made a comment to the doctor about it and she said that she thought I’d had my belly button pierced, so when she put me back together, she created a little “lip” or “dimple” as she called it- so that I could get it re-pierced and have the perfect spot for it! Ha! My belly button has never been pierced, although I had thought about doing that a few years ago, but decided I needed a much flatter firm belly. Plus I was thinking of the future- is it really age appropriate? How does a belly button piercing look on a 40 year old? 50 year old? Anyway, funny that my doctor was thinking ahead and created a spot for a piercing!
