I visited the doctor yesterday for a follow up after my procedure. When he walked in the door, I was very happy to hear him cheerfully say, "Good news!"
When I had my ablation done, he also performed a D&C to remove some polyps that had grown in my uterus. As per standard procedure, the polyps were run through some tests to see if there were any abnormal cells. The good news my doctor told me was that I have no cancer cells. Woohoo!
He asked me a few questions about my recovery and how it has been going so far. I told him that over the past two weeks I have experienced little to no actual bleeding, but there is still a watery blood-tinged discharge that still occurs. I asked him if it is normal to still have the discharge and he said yes. I could have it for a month or so and that is still considered normal.
I am very curious to see how it goes from here. I will post again in a couple weeks to let you know how I'm feeling and whether or not I get any type of "monthly visitor" as this procedure will supposed to have either lessened it or stopped it completely.
Oh! And I wanted to share something pretty cool, too! After my last post, I was contacted by NovaSure- the company who manufactures the equipment used for my type of ablation. NovaSure's people at Change the Cycle sent me a message via Twitter. They asked if I would like to share my story on their page. I told them I would love to.
I hope that if you are reading this that you are feeling OK. If you have any questions about my experience or just want to chat, please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
