today, i am most thankful for western medicine. because of it, i have had 3 c-sections and 3 beautiful perfect babies to show because of it. also i'm thankful because it helps me like this...
speaking of reproductive health...(meaning boys can leave now)
i went to have my pap smear today. i told them how i had been having heavier bleeding and hadn't regulated on my periods yet. so he did an ultrasound to check. i have a polyp in my uterus and also the endometrium is thickening. so on the 17th, i will have a hysteroscope to remove the polyp and also to have a D&C. the thing with polyps is that they can be precancerous. the pathology of the polyp will determine what happens next. i could possibly have to have an ablation if it's not precancerous. if it is, then i'll just have a hysterectomy. but we will have to wait to see on the latter. we will also have to see if my uterus (having been thrice c-sected) can handle an ablation.
but anyway, just wanted to let you girls know what was up and tell you that i really need your prayers. i don't feel like it is precancerous since i have never had anything abnormal. but you never know. i'm assuming that it wasn't there 6 months ago b/c he was in full view of my uterus then and he is pretty business.
