I will have more concrete answers in a couple of weeks when I get my copy of the surgical and pathology reports, but wow, there was so much wrong with my plumbing.

My ovaries were apparently covered in cysts, one of them had some sort of benign fibrous tumor clinging to it, and my uterus itself was full of scar tissue and another sort of benign growth.  That's all IN ADDITION TO the endometriosis that had plastered rogue tissue all over everything.

NO GOOD WAS EVER GOING TO COME OF THIS NONSENSE.

I'm so glad to be rid of all of it.

I feel fantastic, btw.  Not, like, back up to 100%, but easily at 95%.  Only time will tell how many of my nagging little aches and pains and abdominal issues were being caused or exacerbated by this horseshit.  I can say that there was a particular sort of pain I was getting on a regular basis that was not IBS and not gas pain, and which has not yet chosen to reassert itself.  I believe it was cyclical bleeding from the endometriosis, but it may have been cysts on my ovaries as well.

I doubt this will free me of the IBS, but hopefully this will help that, in addition to utterly eliminating the actual obviously uterus-related issues I've been having all these years.

Thank you!

I'm extraordinarily glad that everything they pulled out of me was benign, because the damn thing sure wasn't fighting fair.

I'm grateful that it was all benign -- when you're dealing with a ton of abnormal growths like that, and they aren't addressed in a timely fashion, it increases the statistical likelihood of one of the growths becoming cancerous.

Getting it all out means that you're rid of that particular worry, which is a big weight off.

Not to mention that it HURTS having that stuff inside you.

So happy that you're having such a positive recovery experience!! <3
