The surgery went . . .

As well as could be expected, I guess.  If you don’t know what I am talking about, read this and this and it’ll catch you up.

Everybody back?  Well, they found nothing.  Absolutely nothing wrong with me.  All my bloodwork comes back fine.  Sigh.  So that leaves me with not a lot of choices.  I either have to stick with the birth control that doesn’t seem to be working or keep flipping them out every 3 – 6 months when they quit controlling my period.  This is the option Bill wants me to do.  I’m not feeling it.  I’ve been dealing with for 2 years now, and really, I am sick and tired of it.  I’m not real keen on this.

My other choice is an endometrial ablation.  Basically, they burn the lining out of your uterus.  Since I am so young, these tend not to work well.  I would still have a period, and I would still need to be on birth control.

I am not sure why a partial hysterectomy was not listed, because honestly that sounds like my best bet.  I have a follow up appt in 2 weeks, and we’ll go over in detail what we do next.  Needless to say, I don’t know what the right answer is here.

If you have had this done, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Oh I wish you’d been able to get some answers! I don’t know anything about endometrial ablation or partial hysterectomy, but I hope that you can find the best option that will work for you. Hugs…

  2. Lisa,

    So glad to hear that nothing is wrong with you! There has got to be an answer out there for your condition. Hope you find it soon.

  3. Sorry you're having such a hard time still and didn't get any answers today. Get some rest and try not to stress out over it.

  4. I’m glad to hear they found nothing serious but, oh, how frustrating to still not have a solution. Here’s hoping you’ll move closer during the next exam but, meanwhile, like Loretta said, get some rest!

  5. I'm glad to hear they didn't find anything seriously wrong with you. It seems that it just has to be hormonal at this point. Have you had your hormone levels tested? If not, demand it be done.

    Oh and food for thought, my doctor told me that the endometrial ablation is good for about 5-9 months then the lining just grows back and the trouble starts all over again. But as always ask your doctor 😉
