The actual procedure was super quick. All the preparations actually took much longer than the procedure itself. I woke up feeling wonderful. Seriously, Propofol is so much better than general anesthesia (when I told Chris that, he was quick to remind me that was the drug that killed Michael Jackson). I started feeling nauseous about an hour after the procedure but felt much better after a short nap.
The best part was that I instantly felt no pain after the procedure. It has been like night and day, y’all, and I have been elated. It’s the first time I haven’t experienced some kind of pain since February. On Saturday morning, I was invited to a friend’s birthday celebration at Top Golf. I was planning on going as long as I got over the effects from anesthesia, but I didn’t think I could actually play. I woke up feeling amazing, and I could swing a golf club! Not well, mind you, but I was able to play. I can’t even begin to describe how great it felt this weekend to do things I haven’t been able to do for months. I played Top Golf, spent hours at a park with friends, and made it to a church service.
I’m obviously not out of the woods yet. The plan right now is to have a renal scan (to check if my kidneys are functioning correctly) in a month and go from there. I am also meeting with an endometriosis specialist in October to come up with a better treatment plan.
Unless something crazy happens, I am planning for this to be my last major health update post. Thank you so much for all of your support, ladies! It truly means so much to me.
