I’m now two weeks into my post-hysterectomy recovery.
My surgery went well. It wasn’t easy, but it went as well as could be expected given the size and location of my uterine fibroids.
My surgical team was made up entirely of women and they kicked major ass! I won’t get into the gory details. Suffice it to say I emerged with a new appreciation for blood donors (I ended up needing five units transfused), nurses and the absence of pain.
I’d like to thank my sisters at Feministing for their encouragement and support.
And I’d like to thank all y’all for your advice and well wishes…you are amazing.
I am forever grateful for my chosen family for being there, just like I knew they would be, when I needed them.
And I am in awe of and so thankful for my sister, who has taken care of everything and everyone throughout this process.
I’ve still got a lot of healing to do, but I’m excited to start getting back into the swing of things.
Thanks to all y’all!
