Last week, I pretty much unloaded in the post, I Need a Vacation, due the amount of stress I was feeling.
Everyone was so nice and supportive, so I wanted to post an update. It’s not much of an update, but it’s something.
First, my mom had her surgery last Wednesday. Everything went smoothly and she’s recovering well at home. That was such a relief.
I don’t have an update on Buster’s ophthalmology appointment because that’s still a week away, so I’m still feeling a little stress about that.
As for my endometrial biopsy and hysteroscopy…well, it’s done. That’s about the most positive thing I can say about it. It was VERY uncomfortable, and at times, extremely painful. The f-bomb might have escaped from my lips with a loud “OW!!” following at one point. My doctor wasn’t phased at all, however, if the size of the eyes of the resident that was observing was any indication, I’m pretty sure I scared her. I’m surprised they don’t strap your legs down in the stirrups for the safety of the doctor. Seriously.
The good news is that my uterus was clear of polyps. The bad news is that my uterus was clear of polyps, so we still don’t know why I’m having some abnormal bleeding. I have a follow-up appointment on February 13th to get the results of my biopsies, and we’ll see what the next steps are at that point.
As painful as it was for me, if your doctor suggests that you have an endometrial biopsy or hysteroscopy, it’s imperative that you get it done. There’s a reason your doctor thinks you should have it done.
And even though I’m still feeling some stress, I have something to look forward to this weekend. My birthday is on Saturday, and Jdaddy and I are heading to the casino/resort for the weekend with two other couples. I’m looking forward to some adult time, some gambling, and fun with friends. I certainly need it after the past few weeks!
Thank you for all your kind words last week. I really appreciate your support!
