I just call it The Gator

Two weeks after my Hysteroscopic Myomectomy, I had a follow-up visit with “the dashing young fibroid doctor”. Yep, he pulled out the speculum. You know that thing used during a Pap Test. I refer to it as “The Gator” although Wikipedia describes it as the “beak of a duck”. I almost started laughing because I thought:

How many more things can you stick up there? Cameras, electrodes, “Gators”. What’s next?

Yeah, I have an odd sense of humor.

Before I left his office, I asked my Gynecologist about the picture of my fibroid he had given me. He explained it was an image of one of the fibroids with a section partially shaved down. He resected two that were close together and probably contributed to my problem of large clots.

With those two fibroids out of the way, I could now meet with the Interventional Radiologist again and schedule my Uterine Fibroid Embolization.
