Many of you know that I have been having a lot of pain and bleeding for the last 8 months. I finally called my obgyn and he saw me within a matter of a few days.
I have a fibroid that has grown to be 7 cm and taking up a big portion of my uterus. If I wasn't going to continue TTC, then he would do a full hysterectomy. I have to have surgery and will be out of commission for as long as 12 weeks, but hoping it's just 1. There is a small chance that when he gets in there that it will end in a full hysterectomy, but I'm staying positive. I know that if it comes to that, he did everything he could to try to avoid it. While he is in there, he is going to try to open my right tube and clean up the endo. Needless to say, this was an emotional weekend for me. I am trying to stay positive, but it's hard. I just keep telling myself that he is the best doctor and I trust that he will do what's best. Right now, I have to be concerned with my health and not my dream. I cannot continue with this pain and bleeding. I did speak to DH and he said that IF it ends in a hysterectomy, then we will adopt. He was very good with letting (well, making) me break down. I tried to avoid it, but he made me lean on him and for once, it felt so good to just not be strong.
I read your post and first of all I'd like to send you a huge hug you've been through the wringer! I must say that I am sad that you have to wait some more on your journey but I am also happy for you because it means that you have found your answer of why things were not working and why you were having so much pain and weird bleeding. I am glad that he is going to do all he can - I get a really good feeling about it all that it is all going to turn out okay and I also get a good feeling that this is going to help you with your marriage and your DH is going to see you in a whole new light and love you more than ever.
You are a strong woman Dawn and I know that this pothole in your road will not keep you down - you're a goddess!
I do hope that you keep us posted on how things go but it's understood if you choose not to. Either way, I send you lots of love, healing and strength
