Well, he says he's 98% certain I have endometriosis. He could see from a pelvic exam and an ultrasound that my uterus, cervix, and left ovary are shifted to the left, so he thinks most of it is concentrated around that side. We're scheduling surgery for sometime right before Thanksgiving, which is only 2 weeks away :eek: But he thinks that I probably have about stage 2 endo, and that in most of his stage 2 patients they have their fertility return to normal levels after surgery. So we're looking at March 2012 as the earliest I can expect to get pregnant (he puts patients on birth control pills for three months after surgery), which would mean December 2012 as the earliest I can have a baby.
So it looks like I'm taking a four month break... but hopefully when I come back I'll be pain-free and fertile. And hopefully none of you will still be here to remember me.
