Endometriosis Laparoscopic Surgery is Scheduled

I know, I know, I know. It's been ages since I've posted on here. I'm sorry.

I really haven't had much to write about. I've spent most of my time at home or at the dog park with my dogs. But I finally have a reason to write, again.

Endometriosis and Laparoscopic Surgery

It's been over a month since I made my consultation with a gynecologist. We had to wait patiently for my insurance to accept the procedure. Finally, after a quick internet check, the doctor saw the procedure has been approved, and she gave me a call.

I cried tears of joy and relief after I got off the phone. In less than a month I will be cut open- small cuts at least- and we will discover the truth. What is going on inside my crazy body? Is it Endometriosis or something else? Will this end my endless suffering?

The Surgery

The surgery is an outpatient procedure. The doctor will make two incisions: one by my bellybutton and the other on the side so she can move my organs around to get a good look. When (if) they see stuff that shouldn't be there they will remove it. Most likely with a laser. Then they will sew me back up and send me home to recover. And I can't wait.
