It's odd to think that two years ago at this time I was settled in a hospital room waiting for the okay to have sips of water after my uterus and its attending fibroids (weighing approximately 1.4 pounds) were removed.
But here I am, happy and healthy.
I have few regrets. Mostly that I didn't take action with regards to the growing fibroids years before ... back when there were more treatment options available to me.
In the end things have worked out well. I'm ovulating right now, which is a nice anniversary present to have because it was the one thing that I was most worried about - loss of ovarian function.
My sex life is delightful, my bladder is perfectly normal, my backaches have all but disappeared and my blood is normal.
I doubt that I will continue to update this diary, as I feel I've said pretty much everything I have to say on the subject of the decision and recovery period. I don't even know if anyone ever reads this anyway. But I'm moving on with my life.
If I have one thing to leave you with if you're in the boat of looking for answers about anything gynecological, it's to check out HysterSisters.com.
