I had my Endometrial Ablation yesterday. Kind of a new mini hysterectomy, I guess. It is suppose to rid me of my crazy periods and be blood free if I'm lucky. Plus getting pregnant is pretty much zilch. Which doesn't mater cause hubby is fixed. It does matter if we ever make a go out of this whole "lifestyle". In case of a condom break or some mishap. (another subject)
Most women don't ever have their period again. So they basically scraped and waterjetted out my uterine wall. Sounds wonderful , huh? It is what it is though. They fully put me under and upon waking didn't think they had even started yet. I did experience some cramping and with the help of a Vicoden I went to bed and slept for 4 hours when I got home.
I did the needle / IV thing pretty well. I hate needles and was lucky to get someone who knew what she was doing. I usually have a break down.
The toughest thing yesterday was being back at the hospital my mom passed away at for the first time since. Plus she was my caretaker and soft spot in my life for everything and anything. She would've brought me her miniature roses and let me squeeze her hand while they poked and prodded. She would've winked at me and told me everything was going to be ok and rub my arm with her sweet soft hands.
My hubby was there yesterday and he has always been there as well and is still there. He made me laugh and held my hand and rubbed my forehead and I felt safe. I'm so fortunate for having such a loving man in my life. What a sweetheart, he knows me.
So no sex for two weeks (holy shit) and it will be approximately 3 months before we know if the procedure worked. Let's all cross our fingers please.
