Surgery is Over
Thanks so much for all your thoughts, prayers and sweet comments yesterday!
I'm out of surgery and I'm recovering in the hospital. Things didn't go quite as planned but it's over and I'm doing good! They had planned to do it laparoscopically, but after they got it there, they realized that the fibroids were too big and they would have to open me up to get 1 of them out. Originally we thought it was the size of an avocado but found out it was actually the size of a cantaloupe!
I'm so glad to have those things out of me! The doctor said they were outside of the uterus so they didn't have to cut into it and I shouldn't have any problems getting pregnant or having babies.
The recovery will be a little longer since they had to do an open myomectomy and I have to stay in the hospital 2 nights instead of 1. But all in all things went well and I'm happy that is over with!
