Finally got the date!

So today I went to yet another doctor's visit...
If you haven't been reading for a while, go here for background information

And sat down and talked to the surgeon about my cyst and what we are going to do...
Well I have surgery date confirmed for Saturday, December 2nd!
Why a Saturday, well my 6 month review is on the 5th, and I really don't want to take off from work, especially with my trip to Miami and the cruise after the first of the year...plus it will be laser so I will more than likely be just a little gassy...

I am going to have in & out surgery at Sibley Hospital in NW, DC. Its a pretty good facility, in one of the most affluent areas in this town, whatever that means. I just know that my doctor's are the BEST so I want to stick with them. So the hospital that they do surgery at could have been on the moon for all I care I would be there!

Both of my parents (my Dad included) are going with me. I am a little surprised and really grateful that they will both be there. My Dad doesn't do hospitals, and he surely can't handle me or my mother being sick, but he said that he will be there!

So he is saying it could be one of three types of cyst. The initial plan is to go in and take out the entire cyst, however, if its really attached to my ovary or any vital organs, then they will only drain it and scrap it out....The main concern is that its Endometriosis

That doesn't really concern me though, it is said to cause infertility, but my mother swears she was diagnosed with this BEFORE she had me or my brother...

Mainly, it doesn't bother me because I just have faith in Jehovah GOD and feel like if I am going to stress than that is in total opposite of what believing in GOD and having faith really is...

So just wanted you all to know...it can be 3 types, it may not come all the way out...and I go back to the Doctor's on December 1st to have my final pre-op visit and sonogram...

Its all good people, I can final get this over and done with...

Stay up, Stay true, take care of yourself and each other...
Peace

Oh and check out this new book about African-American women and Fibroids...I know I will!
