Good Morning, all. (Heavy sigh)......
Well, I went in to have a check up with my Doc, to discuss my meds and just whatever. When he felt along my spine, he found a spot that was just sore as hell. He moved me from side to side and front to back.... that felt great too!! NOT! He sent me for a 5 view lumbar xrays and after looking at them said that he recommends that we get a CT scan asap..... to see if my fusion is solid!!! HOLY CRAP!! Is it REALLy possible that after 8 years it could still not be fused??? I am stone cold trippin because I never, ever considered this to still be an issue. I have my CT scheduled for Friday at 1115am, so I will try not to borrow trouble until I know something for sure.
Number 2: I am being sent to an OB/GYN to get scheduled for a HYSTERECTOMY!!! Holy hell folks! But the fact of the matter is my maternal grandmother had uteran cancer. All of her daughters (my aunts and mother) all had hysterectomies in their thirties and even my sister who is 10 years older than me, had hers at the age of 34.... im now 36. I have been having terrible problems for the past 6 months in this area and found that I am full of fibroids. I know that this is major surgery and I'm alittle scared about all of this, too. I could not get into an OB until November 18th so I get to just sit here and wait. I have met both of my deductibles with my Medicare so now is the time to do anything major that I need to have done. Looks like my xmas gift this years is taking out the ol' kid factory! I know that I will be SO much better afterwards but I have heard that the amount of time to heal can be lengthy and painful. I just want to get it over with, you know?
Other than THAT, things are going great! (ha ha) I guess I am starting a new chapter.... one that is completely new to me. But I am tough as nails and I know I can do it... it just freaks me out a bit. To say the least, I have developed an "allergy" to surgeries!!! LOL!!! I guess we will wait and see.
I love you guys and hope that all is well with everyone. I hope the pain you are in is minimal and that you have a smile and the sun shining on your face today.
Big hugs from me to all,
