Surgery's over

Hello,

I dont know where to post anymore. I am out of the hospital, thank god. I am on some very good pain med's so I apologize if this post is a little screwy. I am up and walking. I had surgery they found that instead of one huge cyst I had two large cyst that somewhat attached to themselves. Both cysts where coming from both ovarys. They were chocolate cysts so they had break them open so they could save parts of both ovarys. At first they were going to rip out the one ovary but with two cysts they had to cut chunks out of my ovaries so I could retain partial ovarys on both sides. They had to reconstruct my fallopin tube. I was diagnoised with stage 4 endo. So I will go on Lupron(?) to put me into premenupausel. Because they dont want me to produce any estrogen because the endo feeds on that. Once I want to have kids I will have to go into the doctors so we can make a game plan. I will probably only have 1 kid because I think they will do a hysterectomy. The only reason they didnt do it during surgery is that they wanted to give me a chance to have a child. I was in surgery longer than expected because they had to get rid of the endo as much as they could. I ended up losing a lot of blood from the cysts and I had to have 2 bags of a blood. I found out that I am B- and I guess thats rare so in a year I will donate blood. They had to put staples in because of the time I was under along with a breathing tube. The tube gave me a fat lip and I was pale from the loss of blood so I looked like I was in bad shape. But they did the best they could. I dont have cancer the CA-125 test came out high because of the endo. I got my epidural out yesterday and my cathader so I got to go home. I am walking around so my bowels will wake up and I am even able to sit. Next week the staples come out. They were really suprised that I had stage 4 because I am only 19 so it has been going on for a while, but I am glad it is all over. So I will update later I am really tired right know so I am going to go.

solstice!

I'm so happy to hear from you! Sounds like good news; I am relieved that you dont' have cancer! YAY!

You'll deal with the endo and fertility later; at least you have options right now, which especially due to your age is a very, very good thing.

I hope your recovery is smooth and quick!
