Yup you read the title of this blog post right.
The bleeding that I had over Christmas week was in fact a period. I had my follow up appointment with my Oncologist Gyn today. The reason why I had a period was something that I had time to research and think about; uterine tissue was left behind.
See a hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus.
On the 27th of this month I'll be having an oophrectomy and I'll be having my cervix removed too since that likes to also bleed if touched by even a long cotton swab as evidence today in the pelvic exam and date with the dildo cam.
Dr. Richards will be having a general surgeon by the name of Dr. Christmas scrub in as well. They are expecting this to get a bit complicated and Dr. Christmas also is familiar with using the robotic device in surgery.
One over night stay and I'll be back home again.
12 weeks no sex. Um, not like I have much of that now because of pain anyway!
But it will be nice to no longer get periods at all. I had really thought that having the uterus removed 6 months ago the day after I gave birth to my beautiful daughter would have ended that nasty part of my life. I thought wrong.
Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers on the 27th. I'll try to post again before that as I have jitters and am eating my emotions right now.
