OP notes and pathology reports
So in light of some recurrent "health issues", my Gyn requested the OP notes from the surgery I had last summer. And that made me really nervous because I have a family history of both colon and ovarian/breast cancer. Was she thinking something got missed since I was still having the same symptoms which led to the surgery in the first place? Or should I have just had another kid (I still don't quite understand how this "treats" endometriosis)? BTW, HELL NAW to that last idea, LOL!!!
At any rate, I got a copy for myself and it was so much fun to read, after I re-read the part about malignancy being ruled out. Now I'm wondering if/when this kinda excitement about anything medical is gonna get old. Honestly, I don't think it ever will since I would have deprived myself for MANY years from being in the kind of environment that would have allowed me to do this on a regular basis.
Unfortunatley though, I may need another procudure but I think I'd rather a BIG dose of menopause do the trick, LOL!!! In the meantime, I was feeling so sick earlier today that I came home early from work, after wrapping up an experiment I ran overnight. Now normally, I'd just take 800mg of Motrin, go lie down in the ladies room for about 20 or so minutes, then keep it moving to our Wednesday meeting at 9AM. But I'm so paranoid about being accused of mean mugging (because I don't feel well) at the meeting and being ratted on for "sleeping on the job", that I just said to hell with it that's what sick leave is for, and I came home.
Now me, my 800mg Motrin, heating pad/sofa, and hot cup of tea are going to try to make the best of the rest of the day!
