Ready for some good news?

I know ... silly question. We all love good news here. So, here goes...

Had my exploratory lap today and what was found was one large adhesion and several smaller groupings and they were all removed laparoscopically. I have 3 bandaids on my tummy. Darvocet is working well to control the pain.


I hear that NO endo was found. I have an appointment with my doc on Friday and will get the full scoop. Could it be the beastie is gone?

All the staff were nice to me and were really doing their best to care for me the best way they could.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your prayers. It worked!!!!

Dear Michelle,

That is great to hear that things went well and they didn't find any endo.... hopefully it was the adhesions causing your pain.

I was just wondering if you or the doctors thought before the surgery that the endo might still be playing a role in your pain... I ask because I have lap surgery on Feb 4th and both doctors I saw (at the Mayo) thought that I am still having trouble with endo... I am not so sure... I don't know what if anything they will find.

Did the surgeon biopsy any tissues?

I really really hope that this surgery resolves your pain issues. Just remember it might take some time for your nerves to calm down after having pain for so long.

Michelle that is great news....glad to know you are home and on the road to "recovery". Those "darvocets" must be working wonders if you were able to send us this news. No typos either...good girl.
But thanks for letting us know as I was hoping that you would, but figured it would probably be tomorrow before we would here from you.
Get plenty of rest and good luck with your appointment on Friday.

Sarah,

Yes, my thought it was endo and that he was going to find my left ovary in terrible shape - due to endo damage. He asked me again today if one was really bad off could he take it an leave the other and I confirmed that was fine.

Over the last few days I just had this hunch that they would find something really quite easy to handle that happened to be causing a lot of pain at times. I won't know the nitty gritty until Friday.

I have been doing the short walk and rest thing since I came home. Not doing anything to violate the Princess rules.

I have lots of help and support. I am very blessed anyway you look at it.

Gentle s for all!
