surgery on the 19th

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. Between work travel, the surgery and the holidays, I'm finally at home to catch up and update. :-)

I had my surgery on the 19th, and I have been doing quite well since. It was an abdominal procedure, and my cluster of fibroids ended up being 13 and a half pounds! My doctor had initially given me an option to keep my uterus, but it involved having it being pieced together... I figured it was best to go ahead and have it removed. I couldn't see any other alternative, and it ended up being the best decision for me.

I am actually healing better and faster than I or my doctors had guessed. The only discomfort I'm experiencing now is the itchy incision due to healing, and of course a little case of "swelly belly". However, I've lost 25 pounds overall since surgery, and I actually feel more energetic already- to the point where my mom has to make me sit down somewhere. LOL

I must also note that the free information I received from HysterSisters is FANTASTIC. It answered a lot of questions that I had and then some. I still feel quite comfortable and confident that I did the right thing.
