My life is in His hands
A quick update. The procedure went longer than planned....three incisions were needed rather than the one that was expected. They scrapped a small amount of endometriosis off my uterus but found that the main issue is endometriosis of the 'pouch of douglas-behind the ueterus. I also had to stay an extra night in the hospital due to significant pain. The surgeon also found severe piles that will need a lot of time to heal--I already had surgery for this problem, but without success. I will head back to the dr. on Monday to talk about treatment options. By what she has said thus far, I will more than likely need surgery next time we are in the states--as this hospital is not equiped to treat the form of endometriosis that I have. Thanks for ALL your prayers and encouraging emails. My amazing husband and kids are doing great-yeah God! I am in a lot of pain but have an ample supply of pain medication. I will let you all know when I arrive back safely home (Monday at 10pm/11am west coast time).
