Glad That’s Over With!

I am 2+ weeks post op from my hysterectomy. I can say I am feeling pretty damn good! Doc said that I look good and healing well for being 2 weeks out. Gave me the details of my surgery. Everything is gone by my ovaries, so I get to go through a natural menopause (this is good since I am only 38).

He also told me about the pathology on my uterus. They didn’t find anything bad, though I did have some fibroids (we knew about those), but they also found that I had no lining to my uterus (meaning the ablation I had done in 2012 worked). The problems I was having was coming from Adenomyosis. This is similar to endometriosis where the lining of the uterus travels through the body causing pain. Adenomyosis is where the lining of the uterus grows inside the muscle of the uterus instead of inside the cavity.

One of the risk factors is prior uterine surgery. If you (or someone you know) has had a surgery like a c-section or ablation or something else and are having severe pains like I did…make sure you show them this so they can ask their doctor about it!

Other than all that, I am doing well. Hope to stay doing well! I will be cleared to resume regular activities in November with my 6week check up even though I am pretty much doing what I want to do now.

Life is, finally, good!

The Mom’s Club

Not long after I started this blog, I started a page here called The Mom’s Club. My intent was to let moms know about things that no one tells you when you are pregnant. At some point I realized I wanted it to be more…so I have finally updated the page with something more I was aiming at and it can now be found in the top menu. As a survivor of Post-Partum Depression, it was important to me to make sure other women know they are not alone in feeling like something was amiss.

Feel free to take a look at it and share  your story or advice in the comments. Just remember, my house my rules. If I don’t feel like your comment is helpful, relevant or is mean, it could be deleted or altered. While it is called The Mom’s Club, Dad’s are welcome too…being a woman I just didn’t feel qualified to speak for men and their feelings there.

Battered & Bruised

I now grace you with a picture of my belly.

Poor, poor belly.
