Last year I got a bit of a shock when after having a pap smear I was called back in for an appointment. I was told that I had an abnormal result. I was told it was a CIN 3. I had surgery within 4 weeks to remove it.
I recovered from that quite well, but started having hormonal problems 6 months later. My cycle got so out of whack that I ended up anaemic and slept this winter away. My husband told me that I'd "gone whacko" and the kids used to hide from me during the worst of the mood swings. When my GP started me on hormones I also had acne the likes of which I had not ever had even during the peak of my adolescent zit production!
So, three months, may tests and quite a few iron tablets later, my gynecologist tells me I have a pseudo poly cystic ovary disorder which means in a nutshell that I'm not ovulating properly and its throwing everything out of whack, including my weight.
Basically I have two options a) a hormone implant that he doesn't feel confident of being able to place because of the awkward position of my uterus and scaring from the operation last year that I would need a general anaesthetic for anyway or b) a hysterectomy which will stop the hormones, control the anaemia, help me lose weight and take my risk of further cancers from "very high" to "practically zero".
Let me see......... I choose.......... tick tock tick tock......... b! So I have 6 weeks to say goodbye to my uterus. I'm thinking of throwing it a farewell party the weekend before my op.......... do you reckon that will count as decluttering body clutter? lol!
