I'm doing alright today - had my laparoscopy yesterday. It went very well - found out I had stage three, possibly even stage four, endometriosis. She removed a lot. When I was bein wheeled to the operating room, the doctor told us to expect an hour, or possibly an hour and a half, for the surgery. From first incision to last stitch turned out be just over four hours. An hour and fifteen minutes of that was devoted to removing the endometriosis lesions from my ureters. Had we not done the surgery, the endo on my ureters would have started causing some significant health issues within the next few years. So I'm glad for that. She removed endo from my uterus, tubes, ovaries, the space behind my uterus, my ureters, and large intestine. There were a couple small spots on my small intestine and diaphragm that she wasn't able to remove. Here's the address for the pictures and explainations from the surgery:

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
