Maybe some of you can relate to this. When I went in for my surgery last Wednesday, and especially after it was over, I felt optimistic, like something was finally getting done about the symptoms I'd been having. So the doctor removed the ovary and three polyps and smiled at me when she said there was nothing in the ovary after all. For the next couple of days, I felt better emotionally, thinking "it's over" and good stuff like that. Starting on Saturday, gradually, the doom and gloom feelings have returned, and I woke up feeling sad and teary today. I know what the triggers are. I'm waiting on pathology results from the surgery and was reminded yesterday in conversation with my mom that I still have an ovary and my uterus, and a few fibroids. It is all a feeling of having cleared this hurdle but wondering what if the doctor was wrong and something shows up in the pathology results, or what if something bad turns up in future with the remaining ovary? My anxiety is through the roof again. So much has gone on over the last few months to get this far. I know I need to give myself a break, especially while in recovery.
