October! I had ablation and a tubal ligation. (tubes tied)
The ablation was supposed to make sure my periods were lighter and less painful.
Nope. No dice.
Don't get me wrong, it got "better" but not good enough. It also seemed to trigger a progression of a problem I'd been dealing with already.
So...now I'm going back under the knife. This time, for a more permanent solution.
As far as I know, the only parts I'm keeping are my ovaries so I don't get thrown into menopause....at 28 years old.
My doctor isn't happy about doing a hysterectomy on a 28 year old, but he's willing. He seemed kind of dejected that this was my best option.
I'm in a weird place about it. Maybe because I've already surgically decided no more kids. I'm more excited than anything else. I'm ready to be done with this. So ready.
So make a note to say a prayer on June 16th EARLY in the morning for zero complications. He's doing it robotically so "steady hands" will be aided by a FREAKING ROBOT. That's the coolest thing ever.
Robotic surgery also means this is an out-patient procedure. I get to go home a few hours afterward and won't be on bedrest. Which...is also cool.
You know me, I'll be chronicling things through social media so if you don't follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter....do that. Soon.
