The funny thing is that this was a "maybe". Maybe this will help. Maybe there's something genuinely wrong and we just can't see it on imaging (nothing ever showed . . . NOTHING, not the cysts, not the masses, NONE of it!). Maybe we managed to miss something all this time.

Because honestly, it was only at "nuisance" level most of the time. It was only after a lot of research and realizing how relatively minor they've managed to make this major surgery that I decided that it was worth trying over a "maybe."

And we found A LOT MORE THAN WE THOUGHT.

I've been in so little discomfort, so little pain, after this surgery, and I know that I'm probably a best-case scenario. But damn if I'm not sorry I didn't try to do this 10 goddamn years ago.

It just gets me. I didn't expect to find out it was this necessary, after the fact.

I'm really glad I told her she could take the ovaries if she thought it was necessary. It turned out to be VERY necessary.

The only downside is hormone replacement, but she seemed to have got the dose right on the first try, because I've had no hot flashes or mood swings or anything. I'm completely comfortable.

I am experiencing such profound relief it's hard to articulate it.
