Another surgery is upon us.
Tomorrow I’ll be having my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. Hopefully all will go as planned and it will be a simple, straightforward surgery with a fairly easy recovery.
An oophorectomy, under normal circumstances, is a short, laparoscopic procedure. However, as with any surgery, there is always a risk of complications. With this surgery there is also an unknown – there is no way to tell prior to surgery if either of my ovaries may have healed into my uterine wall during c-section recovery. If this has happened it will necessitate a complete hysterectomy with the added removal of my uterus.
And, you know me… there are the added risk factors I personally bring to the operating room – the biggest being my clotting disorder.
I am very comfortable with the surgeon who will be performing this surgery. She has read all of the notes and spoken to my previous surgeron and will take the same precautions he did.
We would greatly appreciate your continued prayers for me and all involved.
*The hospital I’ll be in has very poor cell/data reception and the wi-fi so slow that my phone can never connect. Michael will post some updates on Facebook, but I probably won’t have any internet access until I’m home.
