Restin...

Well the surgery day was pretty eventful...

Yes, eventful

I wish I could say it wasn't but it really was...

First, on Friday, when I went for my pre-op appointment I found out that the cyst had grown from 13 cm to about 6 inches...

YES 6 inches! It was the size of a lemon...

The good thing was that it (the cyst) had stabilized and hadn't grown since my last appointment...but here is the thing...how about I didn't even know it had grown that much, I mean I remember everyone being freaked out about it and saying that it couldn't wait until after the first of the year, but geesh...I didn't know it was that big...

But then I was told that I had two "functional clear cysts" on the right...now remember the first time I had one, second none, now, two...so this could be from a number of things, including the fact that my body was in the process of ovulation...who really knows...

So they told me that they would look into it when they went in for the left cyst...

Day of

Me and my mom get to the hospital
check in
everything is cool...oh, but one thing, the person in front of me is having complications so my time gets pushed back...

I don't go into the OR until about 1:15pm...so while I am waiting I have this SHARP pain on my right side...well come to find out, that the two cysts on the right ruptured and I was homogening really badly...So instead of the surgery taking 40 mins to an hour it took 2 hours and 20 mins...instead of 3 incisions, I have 4...

BUT the cyst doesn't look to be cancerous and the surgeon sent the fluid and the cyst off to be tested...so I will know it two weeks when I go back for my check up with the deal is...

It really hasn't been all that bad...I have been in some serious pain and all of that good stuff but they didn't have to do a "binki" cut to get in and get stuff out (had they HAD to do that I would still be IN the hospital)

Pain is all relative when GOD keeps blessing me and bringing me out alright...

So today, by the graced of my supervisor, I am working from home, restin and healin...I will face the land of the living fully tomorrow...

Until then...

THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR WONDERFUL WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND PRAYERS they truly have meant a lot!!!!

Wow....6 inches! Very glad to hear the surgery went well after what had to have been a very frustrating day. I had a functional cyst rupture once (knew I'd been hurting but didn't know why) and walked myself to the ER in the middle of a cold rainy night (heh...was 3 blocks, lol). Keep your spirits high. You an amazing person, T.C. I'd be whining to everyone who'd listen. :P
