Screwed wiring. That’s my hypothesis. Doctors keep doing stuff to my uterus and my digestive tract takes the hit.
Fact 1: I had a Hysteroscopic Myomectomy. Doctor got up in there and shaved down a couple fibroids. Did I have major bleeding afterward? No, it was relatively light. How about severe cramps? Oh, no. Cramps were so minor that I didn’t take any pain medication. What got me was the nausea. So, scrape my uterus and I get sick to my stomach.
Fact 2: Let’s talk about the Uterine Fibroid Embolization. A doctor injects tiny pellets into your femoral artery. They travel to the very small vessels around the fibroid and block the blood supply. Once again, any major bleeding? Nope, pretty minor so far and I do believe it is period-related because the dates match. Pain around the incision site? That seems fine, too. Well, I know you had cramps? Yes, but they didn’t last that long. Procedure was on Tuesday. Cramps were bad on Tuesday night but I did get drugs. Got some Tylenol in the hospital before I checked out the next day and took a couple of Motrin later.
Nothing major until my digestive system decided to go on strike. Only had a spinach salad and some fruit on Wednesday but somehow overnight the contents of my stomach decided to form a brick that sat there all day Thursday. It has been moving today. I can actually feel it traveling through my gut (this is both fascinating and creepy).
Feeling better today so I think resolution is around the corner. Will go stretch out now and patiently wait. I guess I’ll just add this to my list of things that make me special. 😉
