First Surgery, Now Medication...Whatever I'll Try Anything

**Warning, gentlemen, this might not be the post for you.  We're going to talk about Really girly stuff.**  Here is a meme to sum it up:

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!
