Well, there’s been much sickness in our household, which I will update in another post. However, realized I never updated on my post-op appointment I had a few weeks ago! All went well- I got to see the “before” and “after” pictures of my insides 😑 he said everything looked healthy and he was happy;… Continue reading Post-op Check up
Things are going pretty well so far. I didn’t need any Advil yesterday for pain- ion,y took some before bed for safe measure. The incisions aren’t very tender anymore and I have some residual gas pain in my shoulder still, which is just an annoyance. Getting the tubes removed, you’d think there would be tenderness… Continue reading 3 days post-op
Yesterday leading up to surgery day, I was a bit of a disaster. I’ve quickly realized having surgery before kiddos is a lot different than having surgery with kiddos. You think about things more and you truly realize how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken away. I’m not necessarily scared of… Continue reading Surgery is done.
I had the consult appt yesterday morning. He said they now remove the whole Fallopian tube vs “tubes tied” because they are finding it will reduce a woman’s chances of ovarian cancer by removing the tubes completely. I will need one full week off of work and the procedure should be pretty routine. I told… Continue reading Relieved.
I’ve scheduled my tubal consult for tomorrow morning. The one thing I’ve been a little concerned about, besides the obvious, is I’m hoping I’m not having a prolapse issue. If I do, this tubal will be easier for me to swallow since there would be another medical reason for surgery. When we talked about me… Continue reading Consult scheduled.
Here’s the deal: this has been a MAJOR roadblock in my marriage. This has been hanging over us and our household for months and it’s just a roadblock that just doesn’t seem to go away. I’ve asked my husband to think about a vasectomy for these reasons: 1. I have done enough to my body… Continue reading Tubal vs. vasectomy
After having my second child, I knew he was going to be our last. At the time of crying, screaming, major sleep deprivation, and constant stress in the house, it was pretty easy to say “yep, we are done”. But, now that I had a pregnancy scare a few days ago, and making the decision… Continue reading When to move to the next chapter…
So, I need some advice: potty training. M will be 4 a few days before Christmas, and he has been peeing like a champ on the potty for quite some time now. Pooping, however, is another story. When I say M being petrified to poop on the potty, is not an exaggeration. We have tried… Continue reading All Things Toddler: the poop.
So, the pathology report of my biopsy was uploaded to my account, and it’s a bunch of jibberish I can’t understand. By doing my extreme Dr Google searching, and probably being a fast expert of thyroid nodules, I have a complex cyst; which means fluid along with some tissue. What I didn’t understand was “suboptimal… Continue reading Inconclusive.
Thank goodness, it’s good news! The report “shows signs of changes due to a thyroid cyst.” So, nothing urgent and they will continue to monitor. Such relief is an understatement.. I’ve never been so terrified in my life and the thoughts going around in my head were scary ones. Ahhhhhhhhh so happy!!!
