Well, surgery is done, so here’s a quick update. Everything went well and that nasty dermoid is out. It was huge — about the size of a softball!
The doctor said that it had the ovary twisted around 4 times — no wonder I was in pain!
But it all went really smoothly and baby is good too. They did an ultrasound after the surgery and he/she was moving and kicking all over the place. Heart rate was good.
I have an epidural in for pain management and am resting watching bad daytime TV. I’ll recover in the hospital until Sunday or Monday and then at home for a few weeks.
Have a great weekend everyone!
