Endometrial Ablation Today

I am having an Endometrial Ablation today. In fact I am leaving for hospital in just a few minutes! It is a procedure I was supposed to have four years ago, but then we suddenly had to move and I didn't want to deal with it in the middle of everything else. Then it took me a while to get settled and it turned out my new doctor didn't recommend the procedure. Instead he wanted to start back over at square 1 (note to self, don't put things off). Then I found a new doctor that I loved and she immediately knew I needed this. Then I got cold feet and after having tons of tests and a biopsy, I played phone tag with the surgery scheduler for two months... because I'm a chicken (note to self, seriously, stop putting stuff off).

So wish me luck! I hope it solves a very long standing problem and improves my quality of life. It is outpatient surgery and I plan on being one of the people that recover quickly and quietly.



On a much funner note (and yes, to get my mind off the fore mentioned topic), are any of you Real Housewives of New York fans? I only watch the New York and Beverly Hills ladies, and love them! They are so rich and catty and just completely unbelievable - I love them! ;-) On the season opener of RHNH I was so surprised to hear one of the new Housewives, Aviva Drescher, tell a friend that she shouldn't order a Diet Soda, "artificial sweeteners will give you cancer" she said and suggested they order Iced Tea and use a special sweetener that she carried in her purse - and it was Stevia!

  1. Good luck with that! I watched the video and it seems like a pretty straight forward procedure. I'm guessing you're hoping that you are among the percentage of women that never has a period again.:)

  3. I had one! I do not regret my decision. Definitely solved problems, and the worst pain was just the first day. You'll bounce back in no time and be thrilled with the results. Give it a month, though, for the results you want.

  4. You will be so glad that you did it. I have had several friends that had it done and it has worked exactly like they had hoped!
    I watch the OC and New Jersey housewives. Train wrecks to be sure!

  9. Three years ago I had the same procedure ... and a few other little ones done too. It was seriously the best decision I've made and I've never regretted it. I had my on a Friday and was out for a 16 hour Black Friday shopping spree the following week. Heal quickly, spoil yourself a little!

  11. Glad to hear your finally taking care of this. I agree - it's easier to not procrastinate and just get it over with - but that so much easier said than done!! :) Hoping for a quick recovery for you.

    We don't have the Bravo channel so no way to watch the Housewives shows - which is probably a good thing because I'd probably get hooked.:)

  15. Hope you are recovering, nicely. I don't have Bravo, but I DO watch Real Housewives BH on my computer (hulu) because (Im embarassed to admit this) my husband used to date Adrienne Maloof. He hates when I tell people because she looks so pulled and plastic and he doesn't like that look ;)
