I don’t often share anything personal about myself (other than my pregnancies), but having said that I feel led to share my personal journey during this particular time with my readers.
During my annual visit to the gynaecologist, I was diagnosed with Adenomyosis and will require a hysterectomy, which is scheduled for October 30th. I have an adenomyoma (growth) which is growing on my uterus, causing a myriad of complications. The adenomyoma is the size of a chicken egg and has attached itself to the c-section scar.
I am not afraid of the surgery. I am in the fortunate position to have a fantastic doctor who specialises in this type of surgery. I am, however, terrified of the recuperation period and the pain that will be associated with it. I have a very low tolerance for pain.
My mother will be coming up for the duration of my hospital stay and has offered to take the three little kidlets for 2 weeks while I’m in the beginning stages of my recovery. Noo has school and will be entering the examination period, so will not be able to go with them.
On top of having to deal with all of that, I now also have to go for a biopsy on a lump that has been found in my breast. I’ll update on all of that once I have gone for the biopsy and gotten the results back. Please pray with me that the lump is benign.
