LLETZ Do this

So on Tuesday I had my op done, now those of you who know what I’ve been dealing with will know that I’ve been stressed about this seemingly small procedure.

What was supposed to be a 10minute procedure took 45 minutes. My Gynae was just as surprised that my Endo is this aggressive.

In less than 6 months it has come back with vengeance.

So here I sit on the way to work, in pain and there are only soo many tablets I can take…

My follow up appointment is scheduled for 25/04, where again we’ll be doing yet another papsmear.

So what are my options from here?

Well depends if the results from the LLETZ come back positive for Cancer and if it doesn’t I’ve pretty much already made up my mind that I’m done!

Done with going for procedures every 5/6 months, done with period pain 24/7, done with backache and done with not being able to get pregnant.

So there’s a procedure called Endometrial Ablation that I’m very interested in *was suggested by a friend of mine who went through all of this as well, she hasn’t had any problems since having it done a couple of years ago*

Pro’s:
*no periods or period pains
*no growths

Con’s:
*cant get pregnant as its for the lack of a better term a chemical hysterectomy

I’m fine with that! I’m happy with my happy healthy almost 5year old and he’s enough for us…

Let me know your thoughts and what you had done after your LLETZ procedure

having anoter op :(

Where do I start?

On 04/02 I went for a follow up appointment with my Gynae as the Papsmear we did before the op in September came back with abnormalities, and this seems to be standard procedure to have another Papsmear 4 – 6 months after.

Well we did the papsmear and the pathologists advised that there’s even more abnormalities this time round so now I have to go for op nr 2 on 26/02.

With this op they will be testing for Cancer…

When my Gynae and I discussed this on the 4th he said the word CANCER and my heart stopped for a minute!

Reason for that:
My paternal Grandmother had breast Cancer, this automatically puts me at greater risk for all “female” related cancers: ovarian, cervical and breast.

So right now, our plans for baby #2 are on hold! If I have cancer I’d have to start treatment for it and I really don’t want to put my body through a pregnancy after all that…
If I don’t have cancer we will start trying for #2 next year (god willing)

I’m stressed about this op to say the least: not eating right, loosing a lot of weight and feeling drained.

Good news is though that I’m leaving night shift and starting a morning/day shift on 03/03! *yay* some normality (finally)

I can’t wait

post op update: the 5month after check up

Where do I start?

No honestly, where do I start?
Saw my gynae on monday and we had a little chat, mostly about this weird pain I got in December when I was ovulating but that pain has not returned and my ovulation has been painless since then…

Then we both remembered that before the op my papsmear came back with some abnormalities (hence this visit) and off I went to drop my clothes and erm wear a nice silky golden gown… (Nothing sexy about that)

So we get the papsmear out of the way, he does a scan and says that nothing is showing on the transvaginal scan but we’ll have to wait for the papsmear results to come back to know for sure what’s happening – all good right?

NOT!

Papsmear came back with more abnormalities than the previous one which means I now have to go back into theatre on 26/02.

This time round they’re just gonna take some cells and send them for different tests – one of which is Cancer – kinda worried about that!

Everyone is saying: don’t worry about it! That I’ll be fine and that its not gonna be cancerous. But you know what: I worry! I don’t want Cancer and I’m sure as hell not giving up on the idea of having another child… Which is a possibility depending on the course of action we take

Keep me in your prayers during this time

Till next time
