Hello everyone! I survived the surgery! Not near as bad as I thought it would be...but still in no way fun or what I had in mind for this weekend.

Anyways, my Dr removed all the Endo except it is inside my left tube. He couldn't get in there without doing damage, so in two weeks I will start medication to rid my tube of this nasty stuff! My right tube was that is good news. He also found that my uterus is shaped like a heart, not a triangle. So he had to go in and snip part of my uterus in order for it to be shaped like a triangle, because otherwise I would miscarry should I ever get pregnant. But the outcome wasn't exactly what I wanted to hear.

The medicine he is going to give me will stop my cycles while I am on it. But I guess that will be okay, considering the Dr said he won't be comfortable with us trying for six months. He said his main concern is where he snipped my uterus. He wants us to wait six months before we try again because he wants to be sure it healed properly, because you guessed it, it can heal back into a heart shape! He said it's rare, but anything is possible with my silly body.

So...this was definitely a surgery that was needed. I'm not exactly thrilled with the outcome, but I am over-joyed to finally have some answers. It's amazing how much can change in two weeks. I am trying to think positive about everything. If nothing else, this is definitely teaching me patience.

So...Patient I will be.


  1. some answers are better than none, and it sounds like everything went pretty well. at least you're closer to your goal than you were a few weeks ago.

    i'm sure the waiting doesn't get any easier though!


  2. Yes, I am so happy to have some answers! It's very hard waiting, but I know it will be worth it! =)

  3. Glad that you have answers. I will be praying for everything to heal properly and the medicine to work.

  4. I'm glad you're doing okay. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog so I could find you! We're about the same age...okay I'm a little older :( but close! How long have you been married? How old is your stepson? Are you in the midwest? I'm your newest follower!


  5. patience is not a fun lesson. I hope you feel better soon and that you recover quickly.

    much grace and peace to you!

  6. Thanks ladies! Murdock - our 4th anniversary is this November...yes we got married when I was 18...but you can't fight love! =) My step son will be six in August...he is a handful! But so awesome! I'm in Oklahoma!!!
