This one will be brief as it hurts to sit for long periods of time...
I am home from the hospital. All went REALLY well with surgery. It turns out that I have NO NEW CANCER...yahoo! I had two medium size ovarian cysts-one on each ovary rather than one big as we originally thought. My incision is vertical-23 staples from the bellybutton down...it looks like a huge zipper.
Recovery is much easier than expected. I am getting around well, it just hurts to sit. I prefer to stand or lay down. I do not have the ability to bend down, so anything I drop on the floor is there to stay until someone else picks it up!
My mom is here to help me with the less glamorous things like showering and dressing changes and Scott has been a huge help too. They both remind me to take my Motrin. Surprisingly, I have not needed pain meds much at all!
I appreciate all the well wishes and phone calls from friends and family. Unfortunately I am standing up typing this... so I will update more later.
