One Step Forward And Two Steps Back

So, my iron levels have been extremely low. I had some testing done and a uterine biopsy done before I left for PCC. I got back from PCC and had a follow up appointment on the 18th. Well, there was something in my uterus so she wanted to do an exploratory surgery and see what it was and then she would do an endometrial ablasion as well and hopefully eliminate a lot of bleeding.

Fast forward to May 27th, the day of the surgery. I was extremely nervous as I have never had any kind of surgery or anesthesia. I had to be at the hospital at 6 a.m. to get checked in and ready to go. Ready to go was 6:30 a.m. They were surprised it went so fast. It is because I take no medications and have no health problems. So now we sit and wait for the doctor to get there, which is around 7 a.m. Doctor gets there and goes over how everything will go. They take me back to the operating room…FREEZING COLD. Holy crap! They get me all set up on the bed and the mask goes over my face. I think I made it four breaths and I was out.

Came to okay and felt okay. I didn’t feel sick or anything, so I was happy. Hubby told me that during the surgery the doctor came out becuase the mass in my uterus was a lot bigger than she thought it would be and she wanted to make sure it was okay to get it out of there or to just abort the surgery and wait until another time. She was 99 percent sure it was not cancer, so they decided to remove the mass. I do recall her talking to me when I woke up and telling me that everything went well. WHEW.

Had to sit around for a wihle and then Tayler took me home. Now just to wait for the results of the biopsy, which should take about a week. It is really strange, but I can already tell a difference in how I feel. The body is an amazing thing.

Now we move on. I am starting my new program on June 1st and hope I will feel okay. I know I will need to start light. I will share my training here as well. I will also be starting a WHOLE30 on June 1st, so if anyone wants to tag along let me know. I will set up a private Facebook group to share thoughts, recipes and just general feelings.

I am also very excited for Monday, becuase my Kids Bootcamp starts. Ten week summer program using bodyweight, kettlebells and resets. It is going to be so fun.
