Well, till Ellen's comment I didn't realize I hadn't told Y'all what surgery I was having.
Here's the scoop....stop reading if you're squeamish.
When my oldest was born I had a 4th degree tear. I also had 1st degree uterine prolapse. This is the reason the other two babies were C-sections.
Well, over the last 5 years a couple of other problems have arisen like stress incontinence and we finally decided to get all of these issues fixed at once. Last Thursday.
It took 3 surgeons, 3 hours to do a bladder sling, vaginal partial hysterectomy (they left the ovaries), rectocele repair, and rectal sphincter repair... but now all seems to be fixed and healing well. Just excuse me if I get a little cranky when trying to sit upright for any length of time okay??
The good news is this.
I am 34 years old....which means that I got out of having periods about 25 years EARLY!! A-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!
envy me, oh yeah, envy me. :-)
