I got my pathology report yesterday and while there were a bunch of abnormalities there wasn't really a diagnosis. Well, there was but it just means heavy, violently irregular, painful periods. There wasn't anything like fibroids. Apparently this is common and even I know that I can't freak out about that because something was clearly very wrong.
Today has been a panic about pain meds. They only gave me a 5 day supply and I've backed off as much as possible but mostly need them consistently still, especially if I am up and moving which is of course good. I called and didn't hear back and had to call again and explain that my only means of getting them meant i needed the pills by 4:30. The message had not been taken correctly and so there was confusion but my mom is picking up more meds now. I hope. I really hope for a larger supply this time because it's been hard to admit that I need consistent meds when the bottle was emptying rapidly. I can't imagine I'll be totally off for a while.
My life is pretty limited right now. I'm still at my mom's and will be for a while as I can't drive or get into my shower or do many things that would mean she'd need to come up daily to help. I take a shower when my mom is home in case I fall or have problems. That is usually enough to require a nap. I try to sort of get dressed daily but am limited by my enormously swollen belly and that stupid incision. Most days I take 2-3 naps. Today I've had only one which is not good but the med stuff prevented sleep. My emotions are kind of touchy which is normal. I heat foods and am going to make scrambled eggs later today. Mostly my mom cooks. I get my own drinks and of course drink tons. One good effect has been that my uterus must have been pushing on my bladder and I can fully empty it for the first time in years. I suspect my frequent UTIs are done. I'm trying to do little things, like move my laundry into the dryer from the washer. I can't carry it up right now because I need the hand rails to be sturdy on those particular steps. I put things in the sink and the like. It's tough because I want to do more and my belly says no. I don't spend much time upright which is why I'm not updating much. In fact it is past time to lay down now.
I'll be writing more as I can sit more. I can't lay in the right position to type; I know there is one but the belly says no.
