Is it too weird to ask if any sisters out there want a special place to post our surgery photos? In browsing through the photo gallery on this site, I've come across a couple of pictures of fibroids, and I find them truly fascinating.
I don't have any pictures of my fibroids, but I do have pictures of my uterus after surgery. I don't know -- just wondering if there's any interest.
And just so the hostesses can stop worrying, I'm not planning to put my uterus on my "avatar" (the little picture under my screen name) or anything. I haven't gone completely nutso -- at not least not yet.
Personally, I'd love to see it (guess I'm a weirdo)! I've worked in
the medical field for over 23 years & I just find anything about the body fascinating.
I am 13 days post-op & feel I'm getting around pretty good. Had TAH/BSO with 3 hernia repairs thrown in. I just have problems with swelly belly & gas still.
Hope you're doing great.
My doctor has a great picture of my uterus (still in my body at this point) with a HUGE fibriod poking out the side. I could always ask him for a copy. He has one that shows some of the Endo too, along the back ligaments. One of the little side benefits of the LAVH. They have the camera anyways, so they use it!
I don't think my dr. took pictures, but I sure wish she had. I'd love to look at them. I've been cruising the medical websites looking at pictures and find them fascinating!
I met with my Dr. today and she showed me the pathology report. I'm kicking myself that I didn't get a copy of it. It was really interesting. For all the stuff she took out, you'd think I'd be 40 lbs. lighter, but no such luck.
