Surgical Report.

I am still a bit dopey, and I was dopey when the doctor came in to talk. But here's the gist:
She got pretty much everything out. No additioal surgeons were called in. It was all done through a scope, for which I am thankful.

The biggest issue in there was the adhesions. Everything was all messed up. There were quite a few growths of endometriosis, but none of them were particularly large. She did remove part of one ovary - it was pretty much nothing but cysts. Which is too bad. I'm just thankful that unlike some surgeons, she chose to carefully remove the cysts without removing the ovary. It is more time consuming, but it's time well spent.

I am particularly sore around one of the incisions, and have a temp of 100. Not necesarily a big deal, but I'll be watching it very closely. I think it's somewhat normal to have a bit of a fever after having had general anesthesia.

When they ran my blood panel this moring, we had the good news that we probably wouldn't need to adress clotting (or lack there of). Afterwards, it was still good. Which is a big factor in getting to go hom. :)

In short, my God has faithfully delivered me yet again. And for that, I am thankful.
