(I couldn't find an appropriate video, but those of you of a certain age may remember the host of Family Feud saying "Survey says..." That's what the post title is supposed to evoke.)
It's now a little more than a week post-surgery; I'm still amazed quite how much it took out of me. Today is the first day I've worn contacts again; Tuesday was the first day I didn't nap. I'm still wrapping my brain around the surgery results. Uterine polyps were found and removed; we're waiting on the pathology report to come back on them. Stage I endometriosis was found on my bladder, ovaries, cervix, and behind the uterus. And my right fallopian tube had higher than normal pressure and needed to be opened up. Oh - there was one benefit to having the surgery so early in my cycle; apparently there was a very good quality corpus luteum observed during surgery.
All together there are 4 incisions (two on the left, on on the right, and one in my belly button). Healing is slower than I would like, though I've seen noticeable progress. It's a bit disconcerting seeing my belly button glued shut. By mutual agreement, we are taking this month completely off, though I was instructed to still take HCG post-peak. Since it was so early in the cycle, we were given the option of trying this month; we were both firmly of the opinion that it would be better to take this time to just concentrate on healing.
Tomorrow is my first day really leaving the house. I have an appointment to get my hair done, and Robin has his annual vet appointment. Fortunately I can collapse after those appointments.
