As you read this, I am currently at the hospital having a unilateral Oophorectomy. Yep, that is right an Oophorectomy!! Say that 3 times fast :)
Did you know what this what the surgery is called when you have an ovary removed?! I mean what ever happened to just calling the surgery ovarian removal? Why the big long fancy name?? Dr. Phonebook even agreed that the name is a bit much!
I am not only having an Oophorectomy, I am also having my fallopian tube removed & my bowel fixed in any way it may need.
I will not know until I wake up if the surgery was done laparoscopically or an incision was made. However Dr Phonebook told me because I am such a mess to pretty much count on being cut! Depending on how it was done my recovery will either be a week or 6 weeks (so planning for 6).
I will also have to stay at least tonight, if not tomorrow. I am however, really hoping to be home by tomorrow. So I guess you could say, a few unknowns.
When it's all said & done...this is what I'll have.
