They had so many different bits of equipment on her throughout the op and the gyn said if she did not have it done she could cause abnormalities to the baby possibly disabling it, she will however likely have to have a C section as the muscles will not have healed well enough for her to give birth naturally.
Just wanted to let you know that bit of info and that she is doing well. Good luck
Thank you so much for that info Sammie. I'm glad that your friend is doing ok.
The size of a grapefruit?? That is unbelievable! I know how big mine is and the amount of pain I get so I can only imagine what she went through.
Is this her first pg? Did they say if she wanted to have anymore kids, that she could with the other half of her reproductive system? That part wouldnt bother me, even though this is my first pg. My mom had "half" a hysterectomy also when she was 13, due to a grapefruit size tumor. Docs told her she probably wouldn't ever get pg. Well, she has 4 kids and had 2 m/c. Go figure.
How is the recooperation after her surgery?? Was it done as outpatient? How long will she be off her feet?
Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
