Whine begets cheese...

I finally got real sleep after midnight last night. What a crappy weekend - trying to finish the program book while cramping and running to the bathroom every hour or two for about 48 hours straight. The hotel guy didn't get me anything, so I faked it.

I called the other (referred) doctor's office this morning. No one answered. Left a message. Called again, office was after hours. Bleah.

Apparently the fibroid thing is kinda common in middle-aged women. One of the gals at work had the same type of thing, as well as friends who ghad it too.

I told my regular doctor about the cramping and heavy bleeding this last weekend. She said it's time for the hist.

Yaaay, except for the surgery thing, but I only am a little whiney after abdominal surgery. After all, I went to work the day after I got out of the hospital after having my appendix out. Good drugs make the difference... ;-)

Hey Kiddo, you made it almost ten more years than I did. Your grandma had fibroids too. Her uterus was yanked at about the same age, I think. It was near the time that Boo was born. Gma is still in the hospital, but comes home tomorrow. Today she got to swallow a camera so that they could, hopefully, check her small intestine for the source of her bleed. Good news is no more bleed in the hospital. Of course, they haven't been giving her regular food either. Gma loves veggies and fruit and not much meat and lots of coffee and sweets, as you know. We shall see what we shall see. She supposedly still has the shingles and the headache. The damned docs simply refuse to fully treat the whole person. I will likely have to send her back in a month or so if the headaches continue, unless, of course, I can get her to a good neuro to check out her upper back etc. 'Twas ever thus.

Good luck with the hysterectomy. Just be good and don't try to get back too fast like I did. If you remember, my rushing things ended up costing me the full six weeks and more with a gaping open wound. It sure made a believer out of me about the wonders of hydrogen peroxide though. Also caution your doctor not to take too many stitches in the playpen when he removes that baby bed!

Seriously, it may throw you into traumatic early manopause, even if they decided to leave your ovaries as they did mine. The benefits, however, are many, including being able to screw your brains out with your favorite guy without fear of begetting any rugrats, a distinct advantage for any female over the age of 40 in my estimation.

Do let me know the when and let me have the password so that I can check up on your condition and also send lots of good Karma and conversations to the Ubber being along with my prayers for you. Love you. Lots of Hugz.

The "usual" for fibroids is why my gyno was surprised I developed them in my early 30's. I'm on round two, but so long as this herbal supplement I'm taking keeps my symptoms down, they're not worried. I probably ought to see what a new ultrasound would have to say, though I'm nervous the ovarian cysts I have (also round two, and I am not PCOS) will be too large for them to want to do more than operate.
