An update - finally!

Posted 02-11-2015 at 01:41 PM by k742

Wow, I haven't updated this blog for a long time! Not sure if anyone actually reads it, but what the heck.

So...back in November 2014 I had laparoscopic surgery (robotic assisted) to officially diagnose the endometriosis we all suspected, and attempt to excise what could be removed, and check the status of my ovaries, tubes, etc.

Turns out, it's like someone squirted glue inside my abdomen and everything is fused together - my bowel and bladder are attached in some...

I went for blood work today to determine whether or not I am actually ovulating; I'm pretty sure this one will come back normal.
