Let's face it, girls have to deal with a lot of lame stuff. You have to deal with cramps, PMS and
all of those lovely things. I wouldn't trade being a girl for anything, but sometimes I wish I could
just get rid of the yucky stuff that comes along with it.
For those of you that are new to my blog, for about the last year I've been dealing with some health
issues that remain undiagnosed after numerous tests and procedures. Constant nausea and fatigue which left me feeling like I had the flu for months at a time...no fun!
Last November during an ultrasound of my stomach, the doctor found a cyst on my ovary. I was referred to an OBGYN to keep an eye on it. After several months it continued to grow slowly, but had several weird characteristics like tumor like bumps and a strange fluid surrounding it. I made the decision to get it removed before it got any bigger and to make sure it wasn't cancerous. I also wanted to be sure it was taken care of before we decided to have a baby.
The surgery is this Monday and although I'm happy to get this thing out of my body, I'm pretty scared. I've never had surgery before. It will be done with laparoscopy unless my ovary needs to be removed in which case it will be a more serious surgery that requires a hospital stay. The doctor seems confident that it will be a simple procedure but couldn't guarantee it.
After all is said and done, I am hoping that this was the root of all of my health issues and I will be back to my normal self. I can't even remember the last time I felt like myself.
So for now I keep telling myself that everything will be okay and I'm putting this in God's hands and trusting that he will take care of me.
