Thanks for all the well wishes. I am glad to be back in my own bed. I didn't expect to have to stay overnight on Monday, but they ended up doing a lot more work when they saw the extent of my adhesions. We knew that my uterus and bladder was connected with them, but they found that my bowels were connected to my abdomen as well. Crazy stuff...he opened my fallopian tubes. (Now I just need some eggs. :)I also had a cysts taken of each ovary. My doctor did a bladder hydrodistention (sp?). Apparently, they do that to diagnose Interstitial cystitis...which I have of course...I have had a lap before but this one is muchhhhhhhhhhhh more painful. I am trying to walk a bit so that the gas doesn't make me feel like I am going to explode, but that isn't working out so well. I am trying not to take the pain meds b/c of fear of constipation. I am taking Colace to prevent anything, but I was on Morphine on Monday so it's probably too late. Any advice for a speedy recovery that has worked for you? I'm just ready for these past four years to vanish...but I know that's not going to happen. Thanks for listening as always. I promise one of these days I am going to post something uplifting and inspiring.
