Dr. C. was really in a good mood today. But then again I've yet to see him in a bad mood. He is one of my all time favorite gynecologists. Today I even learned something from him.
I learned that having the cervix removed is like getting sexually castrated. I knew that the uterus was part of the sexual gratification but not the cervix. How many times has a doctor told me and probably you too dear readers that the cervix has no nerve ending? Well guess what? It does so!
This means that I will be re-evaluating the surgery I'll be going through in January. December is the next check up and since I don't have cervical cancer I'm going to request that the cervix be left in place.
I also found out that the endometriosis can also grow on the brain. I knew about the lungs but I didn't know about the brain.
Good gravy that crap could be any where in my body! Will I ever be without endometriosis pain?
As for the urinary incontinence issue; I'm being referred to a urologist. Dr. C. is putting in the referral today. He did a test on me today and it was mighty uncomfortable too. It involved a q-tip and my urethra...Dr.C. said I probably wouldn't feel a thing. I told him yeah right. Oh and it hurt like heck too. Still hurts as in burns when I pee now. But all looked good. The main issue is that some nerves were probably severed when the uterus was removed causing me to lose urine whenever I squat down. No amount of Kegel exercises will fix that he said. I will be having to wear a pad for life. Fun times. So I asked if I could get something for my "diaper rash". He prescribed me nystatin cream. I asked, being the smart alec that I am, if it would turn my butt purple. I've made worse comments to doctors before. One time when being prescribed steroids I asked my doctor if it would give me a little penis. Yes I'm that bad. I have to keep good humor when dealing with possibly bad news.
