Post-Op Update (In a Nutshell)

In a nutshell, it would be a little cramped!

Done groaning and rolling your eyes? Good, moving on.

WE ARE (moving on that is)!

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and wishes last week. The post-operative appointment was super simple. We sat and chatted with our RE for about 30 minutes. That's it. The first thing he asked was if I remembered talking to him afterward, and I must admit at this point, I do not remember that. He didn't seem surprised.

He reviewed the surgery (actually pretty cool). He had a transcript of sorts which he read back to us, with all kinds of details, and photos too. There were actually multiple polyps that he removed, then followed the removal with a "light" D&C. Professor was really getting into all of the minute detail in the transcript, right down to the measurement of fluids found to have leaked back out and onto the floor of the operating room after the surgery.

The tissue he removed was sent to pathology and all came back clear. We are on the books for our final IUI as soon as my next CD1 turns up, and in the meantime, we were instructed to go home and get busy! Next week, I will call up the specialty pharmacy and refill my IUI meds.

We are still in the middle of the road, but the engine is running and we are in gear.

  2. I'm so glad that your post-op went well. I also don't remember talking to anyone before (or after) my surgery. It makes me wonder what I said.

    I hope that this IUI with your freshly-cleaned uterus works! :)
