I'm back, finally, and not happy. I hate hospitals and doctors and especially surgeons. What was supposed to be two small incisions turned in to one small bellybutton incision and a gigantic "c-section" like incision becasue they found and had to remove a mass of scar tissue the size of a golf ball from a surgery I had four years ago to remove endometrial tissue on my left fillopian tube and overy. They found it with an ultrasound the day before during my pre op appointment and scared the **** out of me. the doc said "we see a large mass in the left ovary area, we'll have to remove it and biopsy it." the word "biopsy" never makes anybody feel good. So what was supposed to be a 30 minute or less outpatient day surgery turned into an hour and a half and then I had to be admitted after the surgery was over because they over anesthetised be because some yahoo didn't update my chart with my new lower chart said 220lbs, I was 180 lbs that day. Now I'm up to 181.5...but thats a different story all together.
So anyways, I'm back! wooohooo!
