Thank-you all so much for your prayers for me and The Man this week. We are very grateful.
My surgery went well.
The details (from what Dr. D. told The Man, I'm sure we'll get more information at my follow-up, including results of the cultures):
Both tubes were partially blocked.
Endometriosis had returned.
My left ovary was stuck to some tissue behind it.
There were adhesions.
All has been corrected. Again.
I'm feeling pretty well. Just sore and tired, but The Man is doing an excellent job of taking care of me. He gave me foot rubs on Thursday night, helped me get a decent sponge bath on Friday, and surprised me with a Shamrock Shake today. Kind of makes me wonder what is on tomorrow's agenda ;).
I'm relieved the surgery is over and went well. At the same time, I'm overwhelmed at all that was found.
The left ovary being stuck and the adhesions helped to explain some pain I'd been having; as well as the return of the endometriosis gave some answer to a return of back cramping that I'd not had for many cycles. So, it is nice to know that I wasn't imagining things.
For now, I'm trying not to worry about all of the "what comes next" thoughts that are trying to creep into my brain. I'm trying to remind myself I need to focus on my recovery and then see what Dr. D. recommends at my follow-up. I am grateful that all went well on Thursday.
Mary, Undoer of Knots, please continue to pray for us.
