    Default Surgery tomorrow XP

    Well, ladies, tomorrow is the big day. I'm having surgery to remove endometriosis, check my bladder for interstitial cystitis, my uterus for abnormalities, and flushing out my tubes. I'm half excited and have scared to death.

    I know this isn't going to solve all my problems. The doctor said I definitely have some adenomyosis (basically endometriosis which invaded the uterine muscle), and that can't be treated except with a hysterectomy. But I am very hopeful that between flushing out my tubes and cleaning out the endo, I'll get pregnant quickly. Pregnancy will put the adenomyosis in remission, so that's really the best case scenario.

    If he has to cut anything out of my ovaries, he'll put me on BC pills for three months. Otherwise, I'm free to TTC the next cycle.

    I would appreciate prayers for a successful surgery and a quick recovery, if you have a moment or two. Thanks for all the support!

    Good luck Harmony! I'll be thinking about you tomorrow. I hope you recover quickly and that everything goes great so that you can feel better and be back to TTC right away! I bet you'll feel a lot better once this is over both emotionally and physically. Let us know how it all went when you can. Take care sweetie!

    Good question. Surgery starts at 10:30. I think a general rule of thumb is 1 hour per stage of endo. So if I have stage 2 endometriosis, which is what my doctor thinks, it shouldn't take longer than about 2 hours. But if he goes in and finds I'm stage 4, it could be a 4 hour surgery. I guess we'll find out tomorrow...

    I'll be thinking of you today! I hope he doesn't find anything on your ovaries and you can get back to TTC sooner rather than later!
