My GYN appointment went well. I do have endometriosis, however, it’s thankfully pretty isolated to my left ovary and the tissue surrounding it. The biopsied two implants via excision, and pathology confirms endo. My left ovary is adhered to my pelvic wall and there is some scarring on and around it. There is NOT endo on my bowels, so we know it’s not causing the bowel problems. WOOHOOO!!! I have an appointment with GYN on three months. We are going to wait for the Lupron to wear off and see how I feel during my next menstrual cycle. That will determine if we remove my left ovary. Otherwise, I’ve dodged a bullet for now.

It’s been a busy couple days. I had my GI, GYN, and surgical post op appointments. For once in my life, I’m healing beautifully!! I have a few minor hiccups, but I’m stoked with how I feel and my doctors are happy. Due to a GIANT miscommunication, I have been exclusively tube fed for the last two weeks and haven’t had any food since the Monday before my surgery, 16 days. Turns out, I CAN eat, slowly and carefully. Chocolate pudding, here I come. I’ll do updates tomorrow for each of my three appointments this week. It’s too much for one post. I’m exhausted and thrilled.

GYN appointment went really well. My endometriosis is basically isolated to my left ovary and the tissue surrounding it. My left ovary is adhered to my pelvic wall, but there does not appear to be any colon involvement. This is schrodinger’s news. It’s both simultaneously great news and bad news. It’s great because my endo is really mild. It’s bad news because we still don’t know why my colon is failing. GI and I believed the endo was wrapped around my bowels, but it’s not. Now I’m at GI to see if we can figure out next steps. One step forward, two steps back.

5 years ago, in Alabama, I had a minor procedure on my toe to remove a pyogenic granuloma. It failed and led to general anesthesia less than a month later. Last year, I was in SF for more GI testing because we were grasping at straws since I was such a mystery. I had just been dismissed by Stanford neurology because he didn’t care to unravel the complexities of my case. I was feeling pretty hopeless and lost, since none of my doctors even had a clue. Less than 3 months after this picture, I met my geneticist and she changed my life. Although I was cursorily familiar with connective tissue defects, I never stopped to consider that *I* had one. Her compassion, patience, and knowledge has led me to a new team of doctor and a litany of diagnoses. I now have names for the things that were killing me slowly. With names come information, tools, and weapons to leverage against this foe. Now I’m two weeks post op, and I feel better now than I did in this picture. I am so grateful for my medical team and for the progress I’ve made so far. 2018 will hold more struggles and more surgeries, but I think I’ve got this. Head up. Deep breaths. Fight for progress and celebrate the little victories. LLAP 🖖🏻
