Thanks for all your sweet comments! I am feeling so much better today and really only feeling the side effects of anesthesia - which is awful. I feel queasy, my face is extremely puffy and I'm constipated. Fun! I also have a really sore throat from that tube that stick down it. That is almost the worst part. I really wish now that I had had this procedure years ago when I first scheduled it. So hopefully I learned a lesson about procrastination and fear from all this.
I won't know for a few months if it really fixed my problems. I'd be happy to just bleed once a month (currently I bleed during ovulation and during my period) and just have a "normal" period. I suffer from menorrhagia (excessive bleeding, clotting and lower back pain) during my actual period. There are a bunch of hormonal symptoms that go along with this that I really want (fingers crossed) to go away too. I haven't ever written much about it hear because it feels like TMI and is embarrassing. But when I do talk about I'm surprised at how many women also suffer from this. The women in my family typically have early hysterectomies to solve it all, but I'm excited that the comparatively simple endometrial ablation might solve it! Yea for modern science!
