    Default Home from the hospital!

    I got home yesterday, I feel like a truck hit me lol The whole story of how things went is here - http://scrapaholicanon.blogspot.com/ But thought I'd let you know that I'm home, down an ovary and tumor, but still have one ovary, and he thinks it's working 'beautifully' as he can tell I ovulated recently. Add insult to injury, AF arrived yesterday too - apparently surgery wasn't traumatic enough to delay her even a day. The tumor was grapefruit sized, and the fallopian tube from my left was wrapped around it several times, he said there was no way to separate ovary and tumor. I knew that was the most likely thing to happen though, and I'm not grieving too much over it since the right side is working fine.

    I have a vertical incision from my belly button to below where my c-section scar is, Mark is joking that they branded my initial on me (it looks like a warped 't' lol). It's looking really ugly right now, but it'll get better - they put both staples (about 30) and stitches, and the bruising started today so ugh. I'm feeling ok otherwise, just tired and not very hungry. I have trouble getting in and out of bed too. Kaitlyn is being gentle with me, which is good, and Mark is spoiling me and not-so-jokingly bugging me about having to do all the housework lol. The pain is about 5 times worse than my c-section, all you mommies who have had vertical-incision c-sections, kudos to you! I can't imagine having to handle a newborn in this state.

    Anyways, thanks for all the thoughts and prayers! They did wonders! The pathology report isn't back yet, and the dr told me no news from him is good news as he would only call me if something popped up in it that he didn't like. So I'm hoping not to hear from him til my 6 week appt. He said we're 'Go' to TTC again as soon as the 6 weeks are up, no hanky panky til then and he doesn't think it should be an issue - so yay for that!

    Wow Trina. Sorry it has been painful for you. I'd just take it as easy as you can and take advantage of the hubby helping out....that's sweet of him and you NEED it right now. Praise the Lord you have one fully functioning ovary. So glad to hear that. I will pray that they find nothing with the tumor. Hugs to you!

    :bigarmhugs: I wanted to jump in and let you know that my aunt had 2 kiddos after losing an ovary to cancer about 10 years ago. It's great that you are at peace with the fact that you still have a fully functioning one left!

    Soooo glad to hear you are home and well Trina. That is sure a big sized tumor...wow!! I am glad that there were no complications there and that you are in the hands of your hubby and family now. I too will pray that the results come back a-okay. Also praise that you have a good functioning ovary. Yay for that! thanks so much for updating us girl.
