Home from the Castle! THANKS to all of you!

Honeys, I'm home! I was crowned 10/23 and came home Friday. As of Monday, I'm staple-less! I'm doing well, although still a bit bruised and banged up, but considering the junk they took out of me I'm in pretty good shape! I was a triple-crown winner! Endo (much suspected), ovarian cysts (knew they were there) and SURPRISE! fibroids in a uterus that was about three times it's normal size! But the real prize winner was my poor left ovary - almost as large as my uterus, it was covered with endo, cysts and tumor-lets.
Best part - I got pictures! Yes, my sweet doc, being a sister herself, happily obliged knowing I needed to actually SEE what the heck has been causing all my pain for the last 10 years! Very approriate as today's 10/31 'cause they sure look scarey! That left ovary looks like something escaped from the SciFi channel! :eyes: All labs came back neg on the big C so whew! Happy about that!

Shaved my legs today for the first time post op (yikes but those gams were as hairy as DH's!) and quite a feat considering I lost two steri-strips in the process. But I'm stuck on band-aids because now they're stuck on my well-healing 8" vert incision (not her idea - my doc had to clean up from a rather sloppy emergency appendectomy that turned out to be a ruptured ovarian cyst that a very general surgeon performed about 6 years ago.
I'm walking everyday, broadening my horizons every so slightly each day. Today I got past the corner and I'm in the second house from that milestone corner! Other than the slight bruised feeling when I cough, I'm doing great - feeling stronger each day. I really feel good. The old familiar pelvic misery is truly gone! It's been temporarily replaced by a slightly itcy healing seam, but even that's a trade up from the old pain!
That's my update - and it's sent with hearty THANKS and big s to all of you who post on pre-op. You ALL had a hand in keeping me from totally freaking out during this pretty wiggy time in my just-over-40 life! Thanks, too for all the thoughts, prayers and good wishes sent my way pre-op. God bless you all!
