    Procedure or Surgery (complete hysterectomy ): September 2013 - After months of issues with my cycle and chronic pain, it was finally decided that a hysterectomy was the best option. They encountered more bleeding than expected during the procedure and so I ended up with 3 scope incisions as well as a 4-5inch incision on my abdomen.

    Hi Jstpchy00 :)
    Some of your experiences sound very familiar to me. I had HORRIBLE reactions to anesthesia and it took about 6 surgeries before I got a Miracle Anesthesiologist! She read all my previous notes and listened to everything I had to say about my reactions. She came back with an "outside the box" plan for me and it worked wonders! She even called me to check on me once I was admitted :)
    SO, if more surgery is ever in your future (which I would never wish upon anyone!) be sure to give DETAILS about your experience. They will listen!
    Good luck with whatever is next in your plan of care and Congrats on the wedding while in treatment!!!
