First of all, thank you all for the huge outpouring of support and prayers after my last entry. I received so many comments, e-mails, texts, and phone calls — I was overwhelmed (in a good way). That meant a lot.
I have some good news!
It’s looking more and more like I will NOT have to get my uterus removed after all! Woop!!
The docs have stopped my period for a while (via drugs) in order to give my anemia a chance to go away, so I’m not freakin’ EXHAUSTED all the time. And, they think they can zap my fibroids/tumors with drugs as well.
I’ve been put on two very strong medications that will, with any luck, shrivel up the fibroids inside me. The docs said that my fibroids were still in the early stages and fairly small, so they have high hopes this will work. I’m going to get rescanned in three months for a progress check.
I really hope it works! My biggest fibroid is pressing into my bladder and it makes me have to leave my desk and go pee at a very frequent rate. It’s super annoying. And painful at times. I hate it. Bleh.
In the meantime, I’m still waiting to get the results back for my cancer test. I should find out in about two weeks. However, the docs have told me “not to worry” and that everything LOOKS fine (they used some funny binocular-looking things to take a peek inside me and didn’t SEE any weird lesions or anything). So that’s mostly good news, I’d say. I’m feeling much more optimistic than I was, that’s for sure! But it’ll be nice to hear the results and have TRUE peace of mind…
I’m really looking forward to not being tired and in pain all the time. I have a lot of projects I’d like to pay more attention to, and I’d REALLY like to go back to going to the gym…
Anyway, that’s all for now. Thank you again for all the love.
Until next time,
