What Is Going On

     So, I've not been very prolific with my posts here the past two months or so.  There is a reason for that and I guess it is time to let everyone in on what is going on with me.

     In April right before my time of the month I started having excruciating pain.  It did not go away with the end of my visit from mother nature.   I spent most of my spring break at the end of April going to doctor's appointments and having tests done.  They determined I had a large cyst on each ovary and in each breast.  

     My gyn put me on meds and had me make an appointment for three weeks later.  At that time it seemed the cyst on my left ovary was gone, but the right one, while smaller was still there and still causing pain. 

     So, I was scheduled for laparoscopic outpatient surgery which was yesterday.  Well, he drilled three holes in my abdomen just to find out it is not just cysts.  I have a severe case of endometriosis.  Because of this he could not remove anything in that procedure.  I am to go back and see him in his office next week (will be making the appointment today) and we will discuss options then. 

     I am still hurting, especially the incision in my belly button.  OUCH!  And, I'm groggy as they have me on Vicodin.  But it seems I'll probably be having a hysterectomy soon.  

      As for the cysts in my breasts I have to go back for another ultrasound of them in Oct/Nov just to have them checked and make sure they are not changing.
