Surgery 2/27/13

Mar 01, 2013 - 17 comments

So we arrived at the hospital for 11:30, they took me right back only to be told the OR my Dr was using was still in use so they would get me in about 30 mins, well 12:40 they came got me again started IV I saw the Dr and he said it would prob be another hour til we went in at 2:30 I was wheeled back and told it would be slow going. I came out of surgery at 5:30
When they got in there they found everything to be very adhered,swollen and even thought I may need a bowel retraction(?) thank goodness I didnt
However the GYN and Oncologist GYN determined together there was no way in the future of them being able to retrieve eggs which I do believe as I bent 4 needles on my IVF with Q and the Dr told me he had the hardest time retriveing, SO it was then that they deterimined a full hysterectomy was in order. I do have a tiny bit og cerix and uterus as they were so adhered. They left the spot on my bladder as it hasbt changed in 2yrs and they felt that it will clear with everything else gone now.
I met briefly with the urologist yesterday because my left kidney and ureter I think he said left is so swollen and inflamed he said he will need to do some proc and at that time determine stents, so I will be having another proc outpatient sometime next week or the following

Waking up this go around was very hard. I was awake talking but I couldnt keep my eyes open. Yesterday went better but alot of sleeping still.

DF brought Q over today which is just what I needed she layed with me for a few and I could just tell how much she misses me. DF said she was quiet when they left. They will check me tomorrow and I may get to go home as long as I am passing gas. My stomach is still distended but improved since yesterday.

I appreciate all the thoughts and prayers.

I dont think its really hit me yet. That I will never get to feel life inside me. Quinlan will be a only child. BUt I prayed everynight for just 1 healthy miracle and I told god if I got just 1 I wouldnt be greedy and if I was meant to just have her Id accept it. I do accept it but I am still sad

Im off work fro 8wks right now with the likelyhood of longer I had a rough start out of surgery and even needed a transfusion yesterday.

I fought this disease long and hard and itwas time. I just pray and thank god everyday for our amazing little miracle Quinlan..

You do have a miracle with Q, and I am honored to say I got to watch that whole story unveil. It is a little sad, because you are such a great mom, and for you to have another child would have been wonderful.  But, you have your DF, your daughter, and thank God your health.  You could always add to your family through adoption, should you ever decide to do so, and if you don't, life will be perfect with just the 3 of you.

Hugs to you my friend!

I'm so glad to hear you are cancer free! I hope your stomach gets working properly again without any issues - mine did not after my c-section so I hope you can avoid that issue! Hearing how bad it was when they opened you up really drives home just how incredible a miracle little Q is!! I am so happy you were able to have your sweet daughter before this, but I know it's so hard to know that you won't be able to have any more children. It's like grieving the loss of future children, which is a completely normal feeling to have, so grieve if you need to. I really hope everything the doctors are doing will put an end to your physical pain from this disease, and that you recover quickly!

It sounds like the right decision was made to take care of everything now instead of waiting until your bowel and bladder were affected by the endometriosis. It would of been awful to live with a colostomy or something. I know that doesn't help your feelings of sadness because of your TAH BSO.  I'm sorry you have to have stents in your ureters. That's what I've been having with my last two surgeries this month. They can be very painful just so your aware. Nobody bothered to tell me. Make sure you drink lots of fluids with them or your kidney and bladder which the stents hook into shrivel up and cause severe pain.

I hope you get to feeling better very soon! You have a wonderful family so make sure you rest up and let them take care of you for a while. I'm glad your wish for Q was granted before you had to endure this procedure.

Totally agree, so pleased everything went ok...I can't imagine how you are feeling knowing you won't be in a position to have another child yourself...but, thank goodness you were blessed with Quinlan before you had to undergo this op. And thank goodness you can hopefully be pain free from your troubles and enjoy life to the full with your lovely family. Take care and hope your recovery goes well.

So glad to hear you are on your road to recovery. I'm sorry to hear you had to have a hysterectomy. But your right you are so blessed to have Q! Maybe she doesn't have to be an only child if you guys maybe decide on adoption. Anyway I'm praying for a speedy recovery. Big hugs to you!

My eyes just filled with tears... But I'm so happy to know you are doing okay. Quinlan might never have a sibling but she will always have a wonderful loving mom who one day will be her best friend. She's a lucky little girl and no matter what she will always have and love you... Always remember that :)

Thank you so much ladies. You always know what to say to help pick me up.
Im still in the hospital. I have to move gas in order to be discharged and so far all I have

done is had a few burps. I have been walking the halls a few times throughout the day and mainly sleeping
It will be nice to go home but I cant rush it being I cant afford to be back here another week or two
My appetiate is still at a minmium
Krichar did threaten to send me a pizza if they didnt let me eat by fri they have but nothing sounds appetizing

I did get a gorgeous arrangement delivered from Krichar and T which everyone who comes in ooos and aaas over
as well as a daisy plant and some other plant from my gram
Quinlan brought me a Willow Tree and I got a message in a bottle from one of my GFs
Lil things like this really brighten someones day when they are in the hospital

Well thats it for now I hope to be able to catch up with everyone soon once I get more energy
