Post Op!

Standard

I had my second hysteroscopic septosplasty yesterday. Apparently, that’s the technical term for it; I had been just calling it a septum resection. Everything went according to plan and there were no hiccups in the day. Unlike the first surgery, this one was on time and I didn’t have a difficult time waking up from surgery. I had minimal pain, cramping and bleeding. It went as good as it could have gone. The RE said, “This should solve the problem and I shouldn’t have any problem carrying a baby to term now.”

I’m glad that surgery is done and out of the way. We wavered so much in even having it done. It was extremely scary because during the first surgery, she said that she saw a “main artery” and stopped. So there was was much confusion in, if she stopped the first time, how much more could she get the second time? Originally my septum was 18mm. After the first surgery, she got the septum down to 12mm. Anything over 12mm they recommend doing surgery. So, we’re hoping to be 6mm or less during the next ultrasound, which will be in about a month depending on when my next period starts. We can’t start conceiving for another three months, which I’ll gladly take as a much needed break.

I should be 26 weeks tomorrow. It’s still a little surreal that I”m not pregnant and there will be another non-birthday in my future. This Fall will be extremely difficult.

I heard on the radio yesterday there will be a big baby boom this Fall because of the harsh winter we had last year. Dandy. Maybe that’s why it seems like everyone is pregnant? Who knows.

I’ll try to be a little more regular in my posts. It’s just so hard write anymore.

  1. I’m glad to hear everything went well and you are recovering. Such a step in the right direction, I am so glad you are feeling good about it. As for the fear of the Fall, I’m right there with you, I would also have been 26 weeks next week. Thanksgiving is going to be tough. Hugs to you girl and lots of positive healing vibes!
