Since I’ve now graduated from the lortab I am just going to offer a quick update. My self-imposed social media ban is over. But blogging from my iPad is HARD y’all! So this will be quick. First world problems.
I am snuggled up on my couch at home, watching Project Runway while drinking a caramel macchiato that my mama brought me this morning. She came to help me get up and around and take care of my uterine balloon tubes (yes it’s a real thing and i now have them, fun times) so the Edder could go back to work.
Keeping this to the point. My surgery went well, although recovery has been much more challenging than I anticipated. Dr. Grainger, my reproductive endocrinologist, was surprised at how good my insides looked. He removed my endometrial cyst and the little bit of endometriosis I had. He was expecting quite a bit more endo than what I had. This is fantastic news. The best news being that my Fallopian tubes are clear and open, something else we weren’t expecting.
Basically my insides defied all odds for what he expected to find. I told him I’m an overachiever! The biggest issue was my uterine septum… i.e. my heart shaped uterus. He removed the septum and in its place is a uterine balloon that will allow everything to heal up sans scar tissue.
To keep it brief. This uterine balloon has caused a fair amount of trauma and distress. That is an understatement. And pain. It has caused a lot of pain. Friday and Saturday proved almost too much for my tolerance of pain and emotional distress. All is well now. Not comfortable but well.
The bottom line is this. Prospects for having a baby now? Pretty darn excellent. Time to heal up and move to phase two! TBR! More later, because who doesn’t want pictures and more details about my reproductive system?!
p.s. the edder is an amazing soul. i couldn’t ask for a better partner in crime for this adventure. dude is seriously just incredible, i am a really fortunate girl. i can’t sum it up in words well enough. he is my rock, there is no way could i get through this without him.
