I’m still afraid to take the tape off my stitches. The Rules and Regulations sheet I was given said not to take the tape off, that it would come off on its own, but with being so itchy and rashy from the tape under my left arm, it seems like taking the tape off the stitches would be saving me from getting another rash. On the other hand, I don’t want to undo any stitches by taking off tape that may be holding them into place.

I made it thru the surgery! My doctor took the polyp out and it has been sent to the lab for testing. My doctor took a bunch of pictures while she was in there and I get to see them at my next appointment. She did a dye flush to be sure the plumbing isn't clogged and checked around for endometriosis and fibroids. She said everything looked really good and after a cycle hiatus, we can start fertility treatments again.
I have an incision in my belly button and one just above my pubic bone. They have 3-4 stitches each but despite how small the incisions are, they hurt a tremendous amount. I can't sit up by myself or lay down by myself, etc. Thankfully Hub is here to help me out. :)

This blog is a new feature - thanks to my sister, cuz it was her idea! :) It's a great idea cuz i can keep everyone appraised of my status at the same time!
Today was the pre-op appointment. I got to hear all about the risks and had to sign all kinds of scary paperwork that says i won't sue if the unthinkable happens, blah, blah, blah. Then I got the laminaria put in. Now, I'm not a doctor, but from what I understand, a lamineria is like a tampon made from surgical grade kelp which is used to dilate the cervix so the surgery tools can pass thru without having to force the cervix open with a tool which can cause ripping. As my best friend says, "I try to avoid ripping any part of my body if I can help it." Good advise C!
So, tomorrow is the big day - wish me luck!
