Remember me having surgery? That was about two and a half months ago and things haven't gone as smoothly as I would have hoped. Guys, I am so beyond frustrated with it. I'm going to rant for just a sec. Josh and I paid a great deal of money to get this surgery done. I went through the pain and discomfort and the people at work being hateful about me being off. My doctor seemed SO sure that this was going to work. Wham bam, I was supposed to be great with child. It just hasn't happened. Let me tell you what did happen.
PMS. So freakin' much PMS happened. Before this surgery I had very regular cycles, 29 days. I had quite a lot of cramps, but nothing lots of Tylenol couldn't take care of. After this surgery my periods went to 38-40 days. Let me say it again-Forty.Stinkin.Days. That would be bad enough except that the PMS was insane. I started PMSing at normal time and it just went on and on and on. I was a complete emotional basketcase. I watched Grey's Anatomy and was in a sobbing mess, like shaking, couldn't breathe because I was crying so hard. Yeah, it was sad, but not that sad. Emotions were just craziness. Also I could have ripped someone's head off and eaten double chocolate ice cream out of their skull. So, some anger and cravings, teeny tiny bit of each ;) And cramps, a whole new world of cramps of the sudden "I think my ovaries are being jerked out by an invisible source, Sweet Jesus above I'm going to die" variety.
I know there are no guarantees with any surgery, but gee this is not what I signed up for. I went back to the doctor yesterday and he said I am no longer ovulating. Yippie freakin' ki yay. I was ovulating before the surgery. I had that confirmed by two doctors, an ultrasound, and the surgery itself. So the surgery actually Stopped my ovulation. That's awesome, Exactly what I was hoping for. Now I am on some medication (Letrozole, similar to Clomid, but without as many risks) to restart my ovulation. We have three months to try this. Hopefully, hopefully, hopefully this will work. I am crossing my fingers, toes, hair, eyes, everything. I think it will work.
Two funny things happened at the doctor's though. He was doing my ultrasound and he says "Oh your ovaries are Spectacular!". I couldn't help but laugh! I mean what an odd compliment. I thanked him because what else can you say?? Then I was putting my legs in those lovely stirrups and I had a muscle spasm and kicked the doctor. I was mortified! He was shocked, I was shocked. I just started apologizing. Thankfully it was just in his arm, not like his face or something. Like that appointment wasn't uncomfortable enough without patient/doctor abuse!
That's the update. More as I know what's going on. Have a lovely weekend my darlings!
