I just wanted to let everyone know that the surgery went well. Ben might take a second to put one of his funny updates on, but mine is just information. Sorry!
I went in for surgery yesterday at 1PM up at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake. They did laparscopic bi-lateral drainage of my cysts, then burned them so that they hopefully do not come back so quickly. They also did excision of what endometriosis they could, which is more than either of my other surgeons have done and makes me very happy. Oh, and then I had my appendix removed. That was at my special request. I know, I sound like one of the wierd interns on Grey's Anatomy. Who asks to have a piece of their body removed? Well, if you knew the kind of horrible tests they put me through the last time I went to the ER just to make sure it wasn't my appendix, you would understand why I asked. I don't want them to ever have a reason to question it again. So, they removed that and then were done. The doctor came out and talked to Ben when they were done. He also gave him a video, which is so awesome to have but kind of disgusting to watch. Dr.Peterson told Ben that that all went well, but he did up by dosage of the suppression medication I am on because the endometriosis was a lot worse than he originally thought. I probably could have told him that, but no one believes me until they see it:)
So, now I am just recovering, which seems to be going pretty well. I was lucky to have a wonderful surgeon that seemed to know exactly what he was doing.
I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers. We are hoping this is the last of these, at least for a while.
