So the Endo Continues to Give

Today was my follow up appointment with my OB/GYN that did my hysterectomy after I gave birth 6 weeks ago.  All is not well.

He has now referred me to the oncologist for gynecology.  He has also told me that I'll be needing more surgery soon and that the oncologist will most likely be doing the surgery robotic style.  Is that a good thing?  I wonder.  But I'll be getting more information as soon as I get a call back from my new doctors at Internal Medicine.

Tricare has deemed it necessary to send me to Internal Medicine for my primary care and not a general practitioner.  I should have realized it would happen sooner or later.  I'll also be needing to see someone for pain management but I was told at Internal Medicine that they only see active duty in their clinic for pain management and that I'll be referred out.  Endometriosis just keeps on giving!

During my exam today the pain was bad when the doctor palpated my pelvic region.  He said it is healing well.  Okay but the pain just sucks.


  1. Sorry to hear that you have to have surgery again. Using robotic arms to perform the surgery usually makes smaller incisions and makes for easier recovery.

  2. I'm sorry that you are dealing with all of this. I hope you get answers soon.

  3. I can only imagine how it is going through all this, after birth and hysterectomy. (I'm three months post-hyster myself). Really sorry you didn't get better news, and hope you get that referral soon.
