I had my surgery on October 30 and the doctor discovered that I had a tear in my intestine behind my uterus making a 45 minute procedure into 2 hours in theatre. Poor Papa Steve was beside himself with worry, poor man. The adenomyoma was also much bigger (ostrich egg instead of chicken egg size) than originally thought.
The recovery is not as bad as I had anticipated. My c-sections were much more painful. Though that being said, this was a major surgery and I’m still in constant pain. The only concern I have is that I suffer from regular fevers and only the anti-inflammatory medication is breaking them. I’m off to the doctor for my post surgery follow up on Thursday to get the full details of what was done.
Most of my day is now spent in/on bed reading or sleeping. The three little kidlets have gone to my mom on the farm for the next 2-3 weeks (depending on my recovery) while Noo prepares for his end of year exams. He has been a HUGE help to me since I got home with hospital and Papa Steve has gone back to work.
I plan on documenting my recovery on a weekly basis, so keep an eye out on Part 2.
