Seriously! I know they're in the hospital for a few more days than I was so they have assistance but the 3rd and 4th days were the most painful for me and I can't bend or lift anything for a while.

  Indeed.

 

And most often (not always), there is help—be it husband, visiting Mom or sister, etc.

This week has been brutal between constantly being in pain, not being able to get comfortable and not sleeping thanks to the pain killers, which I've decided to not take before bed going forward. I wonder how on earth women who have a c-section are able to care for newborns for the first couple/few weeks!

Good morning, friends. As many of you know, I had my surgery yesterday and needed to stay in the hospital for at least one night. Recovery yesterday was pretty rough but I have a Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) pump so that helps. I just got a visit from one of my doctors who went over everything and they ended up having to remove 3 fibroids instead of just one of two as originally planned. The largest was 5.5 cm, which is about the size of a lemon. {#Eek} The middle-sized one was 3.5 cm and the smallest had to be removed because if its location.

I'm feeling much better today. They just took my catheter out and I have until 12 pm to pee on my own or they're going to have to do a manual catheter irrigation and that doesn't sound fun at all! Needless to say, I'm drinking a LOT of water right now. 

I'm going to get up and walk around for the first time in a little bit after I eat and hopefully I'll be able to go home today!

We've been hoping for one but my body hasn't been cooperating, hence the previous surgery and the upcoming one, which will be on the 21st and this will be a more serious and invasive one. While the surgery is being coded as a medical necessity and should be covered by insurance, we've been denied fertility intervention due to my age so if we proceed after surgery with treatments, we'll have to figure out how to come up with a lot of money. It seems like a cruel joke that we're more likely to get knocked up in high school than when trying after waiting to get married.

My doctor has talked to me about a treatment that would stop the periods (not the pill, but an actual sealing of the uterus) and I guess I should consider it, but I'd need to be sure that the symptoms, which, like yours, diminish my quality of life, would end completely before I'd go forward with it.

 
Ablation?  That was my next option if the pill had not worked.  My doc and I opted for the most conservative treatment first, and since it worked, there was no need for progressing to the next least conservative.  I hope you find a solution.

The last time they checked my FSH, I was still fully functional, too.  I was the same age—exactly 51 1/2.  I feel your pain.....  

My doc in Illinois started me on a version of the pill that was safe for women over 40, and it made my horrible periods stop. It was SUCH a life saver, because my periods started getting bad around age 38, and I suffered a great deal of "life impact" from them for years.  They were painful, nauseating, and heavy.  I had to literally plan my life around them. (and everything checked out as "normal,"  no endometriosis, no anything.)

The pill WORKED, and I took it for several years.

We did the FSH test to see if I could come off of the pill yet.  NOPE!!

Then, in December, my oncologist took me OFF of the pill, just about exactly 2 years after that last FSH test.   There was one tiny period before chemo started.  Nothing since, but that COULD be because of the chemo....I don't really know.

Either way,  I hope you are near the end.  
I am sorry that you know for sure that your other female family members were done so young.  I had no idea when my sister would have gone through it because tamoxifen gave her uterine tumors. She had to have a hysterectomy before she went through menopause, and my mom died before I knew it was something I needed to ask her.

 
My doctor has talked to me about a treatment that would stop the periods (not the pill, but an actual sealing of the uterus) and I guess I should consider it, but I'd need to be sure that the symptoms, which, like yours, diminish my quality of life, would end completely before I'd go forward with it.
