Aunt Flo's last revenge

I had been awaiting my last visit from Aunt Flo. I swear she knows that the 20th she's getting evicted.

Yesterday, I wake up with nasty cramps and extreme pain in my hip. I was bleeding, but not much. Bled a "normal" amount (which is normal for a normal person) and thought "huh, this month is light!" Then I wake up this morning and hadn't soaked through my double protection even though I didn't get up in the night. I thought "hey, this is cool!"

Then....I went to work. I have been changing double protection every hour. Every hour! I bled through double protection after my hour commute (great thing to realize when you get to work, huh?) I even passed a clot the size of a lemon. Yeah, that was a great feeling.

I was even smart enough today to wear light colored pants. What was I thinking? I had to untuck my shirt and hope that it covers where I bled through. I just want to go home, but I can't.

As for surgery- BRING IT ON!!! I'M READY!

Thanks for the reply!

For some reason, I have a feeling she'll be extending her stay until she is evicted. Usually when I pass clots like this I'm in for a long bumpy ride.

Luckily, the 20th is only 11 days away, so she only has 11 days to make me miserable. Then I can do a little dance to celebrate her departure!

Aunt Flo's last revenge

I'm scheduled for Monday and I had invited Aunt Flo to go to the hospital with me. She decided to come early, but I gotta tell ya, I think she's trying to convince me that I don't really need a hyster! She didn't give me any warning signes that she was coming - no cramps, no sore breasts, nothing! So far (this is the 5th day she's been here) no big clots, no soaking through anything, not really much pain! I don't know what's going on here!! I haven't had a period like this in YEARS!!! Maybe she knows I'm sick of her and she's trying to clean up her act, but it won't work and she's not fooling me at all. She's OUT OF HERE on Monday!!

Here's a disturbing thought. As my surgery date draws near, I keep thinking about that scen at the end of Braveheart where Mel Gibson is having his insides cut out by the torture guy and he yells, "F-R-E-E-D-O-M!!!" That's how I feel.

(soon to be free of Aunt Flo, the tricky old Hag!)

That's funny....and disturbing all at the same time!

It will be freedom, though. I'm tired of this. I haven't worn a pair of tan pants in years. I was thinking about only owning black and really dark colors. Of course, I have this one pair of light blue Capri's that I wore today. I hope I have enough spray and wash at home!

Arrghhhh. I just want this over with.

In the same boat!

Hi Karma. How weird is it that we are all having the same experience the last period before surgery. I had such a similar experience earlier this week. No warning signs, only 2 weeks since last AF visit, and there she was. I thought it was going to be bearable and make me doubt every decision, but later in the first day the sky dropped and it came pouring and I was doubled over.
I cannot wait until next Thursday and the end to all of this. I'm even over the fertility issue. I just want a day without pain and bloat and all the other misery that never goes away.
I wish each and every one of you the very best and hope that we all find some peace and comfort through this very hard decision we've been forced to make.
I plan to have many "last meals" this weekend since I can't have solid food after Sunday - - - - hope we all have a smooth recovery and get back on the road to happy living soon!

spray and wash

if you use peroxide it works better. Just my tip from the trenches. My last period came on without warning, just a gush. I had given up on it coming as it was 2 weeks late due to I thought Lupron it wouldn't come but it surprised me. I had had lots of pain for the last month and a half constant so I hadn't noticed a change in pain to tip me to it. I was at my mom's house without protection and she did not have any since she is almost 3 years post hyst. I finally found some pads in my van that I had left thewre just in case, so I grabbed my spare undies and then peroxided my stained ones. IT works really well.
