Report from the doctor

Today I am one week post-up and almsot back to normal. I'm feeling almost 100%, at least 90%.

I had my post op appt this afternoon. I have the greatest parapro (teacher's aid, for you old schoolers!), who let me slip away for 45 minutes so I could go for the consult. I did bring her some lunch to make up for it.

So, the good news is: I'm all cleaned out.

The other good news is: We can start trying to get pregnant immediately. (No, I will not discuss that in any more detail.)

The other good news is: If we don't get pregnant immediately, I will start Clomid in two weeks.

When we were discussing what the good doctor discovered when he was scoping around in there, he found some type of growth. He said he'd never seen anything quite like it before, so he clipped it and sent it off to pathology. He wasn't even sure exactly what to call it in his notes, so he just referred to it as a growth. It was small and not attached to my repoductive organs, thankfully! Because my most recent bloodwork is fine and I have no symptoms of anything, he feels like there is absolutely no reason for concern. He was just doing what any good doctor would do. I did have "moderate" endometriosis, which is about what I had last time. My endometriosis problem seems to gravitate on my left side, which is where it was last time, as well. That explains the pain that I experience at various points during my cycle only on my left side. He checked my tubes--open. Ovaries look good.

So, all in all, things are lookin' good. Now it's up to the Great Physician to make that miracle happen. All in His perfect time.
