I'm sure that you can tell from the blog title that today's post does not contain promising words. Wednesday was a loooonnng day. It is a 3 hour drive each way and my appt took 2 hours and 15 minutes. The dr. was nice and very young. He is an expert on endometrosis. They did an ultrasound and it showed that I had large cysts in both ovaries that are more than likely balls of endometrosis (I had these removed during my last laproscopy). The dr. wants to do another laproscopy to remove any enometrosis that is there. I just had the same surgery done a year and half ago. My issues with having it done again is that it seems to be coming back so quickly. Most women with endometrosis complain of horrible and constant pain and very heavy cycles. I have neither. My cycles come ever 28 days and lasts less than 3 days. They aren't heavy and besides popping a few Advil's I don't have any pain. The only reason for doing the surgery again in my case is for fertility reasons. Hubs and I are planning on discussing it and deciding what we want to do. I really don't care to have the surgery again especially if the endometrosis is coming back so quickly. Just wanted to give you all an update though. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.
