Sorry for the late update! Everything went well. There was a significant amount of endometriosis on my bladder, which totally explains the midnight and 3am bathroom runs. There was some on my appendix and 2 small cysts on my right ovary. Dr. R told J that it wasn’t nearly as bad as last time. On one hand, that makes sense because the last time I’d had it done, it’d been growing for 22 years. However, I was still a little surprised because of how bad the cramping had gotten lately.
We left the hospital about 3:30pm (had to be there at 8:30am). We barely made it a few blocks and had to stop at the gas station because my mouth was so dry. It was crazy busy so it took J a bit in there and I totally should have gone in and used the bathroom, but didn’t. Well, I couldn’t make it home so then we had to stop at Hardee’s to use the bathroom and since I hadn’t eaten all day, we also grabbed hot ham and cheese’s. It has been that way the rest of the time. I have to pee constantly. I do have it drawn out to about every 45 minutes instead of 15 so I guess there’s some improvement. I have a feeling it’s going to be a long night. Luckily, I have Lorelei and Rory to keep me company. Unfortunately, I’m already 6 episodes into season 6 so they won’t be keeping me company too much longer. They totally need to do a Gilmore Girls reunion!
Painwise, it hasn’t been too bad yet. My throat is pretty sore from the tube so I’m sipping water often. If you want to stop eating bread, my suggestion is get a tube put down your throat because once it comes out; any bread, bun, or muffin kind of sticks in there and you need a drink to wash it down. The incisions hurt the most when I go to the bathroom, but I did just take a pain pill to be one the safe side. I plan to try and stay away from them as much as I can though so I don’t have to deal with constipation side effect.
Thank you again for all the love, support and prayers! I don’t know what I would do without you all. I know I still need to answer some comments on my password protected post. I haven’t forgotten, just haven’t had the brain to form the comments yet, lol.
Lots of Love~Dawn
