*I gave you your disclaimer.*
So tomorrow is my surgery, I'm terrified.
Dr. Collis is going to be doing a lot more then she had initially told me.
Not only is she cutting two holes in my stomach to look for the progression of Endometrios they will have to cut two more holes in me if they do find it so they can cauterize the "diseased tissue" off. She is also going to do a biopsy from this.
I get a catheter tomorrow... *shudder*
They're also going to induce labor so that I can be dilated so that she can scrape all the inside lining of my uterus and that in turn will give me a period...sort of a pseudo period. While she's doing that she is going to cut a small portion of my uterus muscle so that she can see if I have a thing called Aedonmyosis...
If I have Aedonmyosis they will put me on a medication called Luprin and something else, so that my periods will be suppressed but I will have a faux-menopause.
Dr. Collis also talked to my Mom about a hysterectomy...that scares me.
Anyways, I'll be in the hospital for a long time. Then when I go home I'll have an IV still...for the first 48 hours. I trust my Mom though, she's a nurse so I trust her with the IV, I'd rather have her do it then some nurse or tech that I don't know.
Someone send me flowers maybe?
