First, I would like to commend everyone for their courage to have the surgery. I know it was a very hard and scary decision for me but I knew that it could've been worst if I didn't.
I had my myomectomy on 10/05/2017. My doctor removed 10 fibroids. I had a rough first week after my surgery I stayed in the hospital for five days. I had mild bleeding along with excruciating pain. I didn't know if the bleeding was from the surgery or my menstrual. I felt really weak, light headed, and nauseous after a few days in the hospital. My blood count went from a 10 after surgery to a 5.6 so I needed a blood transfusion. I was scared and thought I might have made the wrong decision to have this surgery after all. Although I knew that no matter what I was up against I had to remain faithful and strong. I was supposed to have two units of blood transfused but my body could only handle one. With so many prayers and conversations with God after my blood transfusion I was grateful that with only one unit my blood count was back up to 8.8 enough for me to be discharged from the hospital (great news). I was so happy to go home. I've been on iron pills 3x a day ever since. My first visit to my gynecologist after my discharge was to check on my blood count and the incision area. Since she didn't see any major swelling I was advised to make an appointment to see her in 6 weeks. Tomorrow will be my third week post my myomectomy surgery. I've been taking it easy and following my doctor's recommendations. I still have the swelling and tenderness around the incision (bikini line) area. I'm hoping the swelling will go down soon, at least within the 6-8 weeks as stated by the doctor.
Overall I'm grateful to know that after everything that I went through I won't have to deal with the agony of having fibroids again. I know the recovery and healing process isn't a walk in the park but it's worth knowing that I didn't wait until it got worst. Remember stay positive and picture the light at the end of the tunnel when you're completely healed and no longer having to worry about the pain and discomfort again. I wanted to congratulate those ladies that are pregnant after having the myomectomy as well. Stay strong ladies for yourself.
Praying for everyone a fast and full recovery ??
