It Can’t Rain All The Time

Yep, this is probably another TMI post, so be warned. :D

After waiting almost a month after the last biopsy and scan, I finally received a letter through the post from the hospital that said they “wanted to let me know that the biopsy did not show any abnormal results. We hope this relieves your concerns.”

Over three weeks I waited for this. You bastards.

In any event, this is obviously very good news and now I just have one (two if you count the minor one to take out my gallbladder) surgery to get through and then everything should be back to normal. I feel SO much better! The constant pain and bleeding were evidently caused by massive fibroids, so they are going to do a hysterectomy and possibly take the ovaries as well, I think perhaps as a safety measure because they can’t see them on scans due to the other issue. I am looking forward to having a flat tummy and no more pain…a very good thing.

So, even though I felt as though I was going to have a nervous breakdown due to the months of scans and biopsies and endless waiting, we got there in the end and all is well. This feels like a new beginning and I am wondering what I want to do next. This is an opportunity to make major changes, to jump over the edge and do something mad. Or brave. Perhaps just mad. :)

  1. What a relief! Your surgeries aren’t nothing – that’s still a lot to face – but I’m so happy for you that there’s a treatment plan, and good health awaiting you on the other side. Squee!

  2. I am delighted to hear this! It’s funny how I feel like saying ‘Congratulations!’ But hey, you’re feeling better and that’s definitely a cause for celebration!

  3. WOW three weeks? That’s HORRIBLE but YAY the results are GREAT! You must be so relieved. Such a shame that you have to have a hysterectomy but at least no more of the horrible women’s stuff we have to put up with every month!
    So glad you’re ok, Ravv.
    Hugs xxx

  4. Yep, I needed to wait three+ weeks for results on both this and the breast biopsy. It’s horrible. On the other hand, thank goodness for the NHS as I dread to think about having all of this done in the States with no insurance. :)

  5. I’m sorry you’ve been going through so much! The tests and uncertainty are really trying, but I’m so happy you finally got some good news. I’ll be thinking of you and wishing you a fast and easy recovery.
