I posted last week (titled "I think the word I am looking for here is defeated") and mentioned the possibility of getting a hysterectomy. Saw my OBGYN today. Got a date for surgery! I don't think you can possibly know how happy I am. The medicine I have been taking to stop my horrible bleeding has caused me to gain 75# since December. I don't have to take that awful medicine anymore. I can lose the weight and hopefully I won't be a social recluse anymore. Best of all, I get to keep my ovaries, so no early menopause for me. Allow me to do the dance of joy.
