I had my Laproscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy yesterday! My gynecologist also found a new spot of Endometriosis on my right ovaries and adhesions on the ascending and sigmoid colon. My surgery was at 10am and I was home by 5. I am so much less swollen then when I had my laproscopy last October. I only look a little bit bloated versus 6 months pregnant.
I had no gas pains at all, my doctor actually removes all the gas when he closes up, he also rinses the inside of the pelvis with saline to reduce inflammation from bleeding, along with using interceed. So I feel very confident that I won’t develop more adhesions this time around. My first surgeon did get out all the Endo, since only the one new spot was found this time. It is suspected though that I had Adenomyosis, and I’ll find out for sure next Thursday at my post op.
Though I am sore, as should be expected! I feel on the mend versus feeling like the life if being sucked out of me through my uterus. For the first time in over 10 months I was able to go to the bathroom without being doubled over, shaking, cramping, with stabbing pain, and crippling nausea afterwards. I wasn’t tossing and turning last night with digestion pain. I’m not hurting a half an hour after I eat. There is no more evil stabbing groin pain, or pain on my lower right, or pain digging into my lower thigh.
I’m just sore.
I finally feel like I am getting my life back! For the first time in a very long time I feel hopeful about the future. I got a glimpse of what life could be like this past April when I was on Lupron and in PT. I feel like I am so close to getting back there, and being able to take it even further.
I also started the Visanne yesterday, and am very hopeful that it will provide a long term solution for Endometriosis suppression. If I’m lucky I will never need another surgery again, and I’ll be able to finally live a life without chronic pelvic pain!
