ayyy now that im more well rested i can actually, like… talk
the operation went as planned! i am in very much pain and on multiple medications but ‘sall good. im just glad that thing’s out of me, tbh. it was a pretty low-impact procedure with four very small incisions that didn’t even need stitches, so at least surface-level i’m pretty great, even if im all torn up on the inside, lmao
unfortunately, the doctors did realize i have endometriosis while they were in there. so, uh, that was a pretty life-changing revelation. im not sure how advanced it is yet but i’ll probably find out during my follow up appointment next wednesday. it would explain a lot of shit– including why i got the cyst in the first place. it might be linked to so many of my other health problems, so hopefully once we look at my treatment from that perspective i can actually start making more improvement. the IUD is supposed to help endo, so i’m actually already one step ahead of everything, haha.
my doctor wants me to stay at my parents’ house for two or three weeks longer than originally planned while everything is sorted out so i probably won’t be going back to my apartment until the end of september. unfortunate, but if it means i end up making some advancements in my health i’m all for it.
so, yeah. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ shit’s going down.
