2020.11.24 01:00 Sensitive-Raisin9714 Tube gyno

Hey guys! I just had my gyno surgery this morning. It was a bi-lateral mastectomy with nipple grafts. I was prescribed a lot of pain medication, including an opioid, but the pain and soreness are quite mild. I took an Aleve, and I don't really feel like the pain was enough to justify that. The only time it really feels uncomfortable is when I've been laying down for a while and then get up. My chest feels slightly heavy in this case for a few seconds, but that's about it.
The surgeon said I should be up and moving as much as possible. I would rather be up anyway, but I'm also afraid of overdoing things too. I do a lot of walking in general, and I feel like I could do just as much right now as normal. To be honest, the surgeon and nurses didn't give me too many post-op instructions. I assume no lifting anything more than 5 or 10 pounds until the stitches have healed. The only thing the info sheet said about exercise is, "Up ad lib/activity as tolerated (Mobility Level 2 Interventions)".
Also, I didn't get any drainage tubes like most guys who get this surgery get. My doctor said he would manually drain as needed.

2020.11.24 00:22 Certain-Issue-9495 feeling dysmorphic after surgical

went through a failed medical and then a surgical abortion last week and am in the recovery process currently, and cannot find anyone else who can relate to how i've been feeling.
i am currently finding therapy to help me deal with what happened so please do not suggest it as i am already looking into it, i am here only to see if anyone else feels/felt this way and if this is somewhat normal. i am also aware that my hormones are fixing themselves rn and that these feelings might disappear over the next couple of weeks. in addition to that, if you disagree with sterilization then please don't respond.
when i first found out i knew i wanted to go the abortion route immediately, i went the next day to family planning and got them everything they needed as fast as possible. i didn't have to deal with any protesters, and 99% of the people at the clinic were amazing. there is no doubt in my mind that i made the right choice, although it has felt like i've been gaslighting myself since then
the best way i can explain it is that i do not feel like i am someone who should be able to be with child. growing up i remember saying all the time that i do not want children, in my teen years i knew i would never myself give birth and that i wanted to get my tubes tied once i was old enough. i wanted to get them tied before i ever had to go through an abortion. i turn 21 in a few months and that is when i was planning on looking into childfree gynos who would do the surgery without the sexist restrictions that i will never meet. i am aware that it will be difficult but i am hopeful that people in my area trust women to make their own choices with their bodys.
with this being said, i feel bad. i have been reconsidering my whole life plan. i have never wanted to get married or cohabit with someone but now a small part of me is saying 'its meant to be' and 'all women have maternal instincts' i have found myself saying a lot of pro-life bullshit to myself that i know i do not believe. i know that i made the right choice for myself. i know i dont want children. i've known that my whole life. so why do i feel like a bad person? why does it feel like i want to get top surgery and go by they/them pronouns, even though i know that wouldn't prevent a future pregnancy? why does it feel like im in the wrong body now? i was okay with having periods, presenting as a cisgender women, etc but now it feels like that is someone else.
im sorry for this post being all over the place but i cannot find anyone else that has had a similar experience and i honestly just want any opened minded insight as to why i feel so disconnected with my body since all of this started.

Perhaps because the scar tissue ( that I imagine was there) was removed in the leep biopsy? I have also heard my periods will be painful until my body is used to the tubes being gone. I cant get ahold of my doctor because I am in rural northern Canada.. it will be months before I see anyone. I didnt think I had endo, just sevre flu like symptoms for a few days before my period came. Everytime. I thought that was normal. Then for a while it got better, than I got pregnant.. Post baby pap revealed abnormalities. Cue biopsys. No phone call yet. Last period I had, I couldn't stand straight, my stomach swelled with blood that wouldn't release, my kidneys and lower back were inflamed and tender. I took 80 mg of thc and went to bed with my hotsand bag. A hot shower later and self massage. I thought things were going to burst, I named my clot charlie. It took 2 days to pass, almost fainting, alot of self medicating, and my mother watching my son because I couldn't even stand. .. I didnt pass much of a clot, hardly big at all, once I passed that old blood tho, It has all been bright red. For 2 days. Period total- 3 days.. not my usual length.
She thinks I need a hysterectomy ~ would that help anything?
This is only period 3 since my tubal and biopsies, but it was the worst one yet.. someone mentioned there is medication that can be prescribed for endo pain, That's how the whole discovery started I thought I might have sepsis from the double surgeries and was inquiring on the phone, the nurse was like it's just your endo. But I did get some antibiotics to take for a week after that call and visit to er.
Looking for advice, on what to do, how to cope.. is this life now? I will be the person who is found on their floor because she didnt think the pain was bad enough. How bad can it get? What is the limit/ threshold before I can seek more help? To get another gyno means extensive traveling and that is not an option right now.

2020.11.17 18:25 IcicleBoner Gyno tube

I just had my Mirena IUD placed this morning. The insertion process wasn’t as bad as I anticipated, so I thought I’d share my experience!
To begin with, there are some things you need to know about me. I'm 23, I've never given birth, I have an anxiety disorder, and I'm a huge f*cking wimp. I have the pain tolerance of a child.
Last month, I found out I was pregnant and had a miscarriage before I could even really process what was going on (although I knew I would get an abortion if it came down to it). I was only 5 weeks along, so the miscarriage wasn't any more uncomfortable than serious period cramps. Nothing I couldn't handle with ibuprofen and a heating pad. But after that whole experience, my fiancé and I decided it was time to find a more reliable method of birth control.
We decided I would try the Mirena hormonal IUD. I had been on progesterone pills a few years before and it was a pretty neutral experience. I experienced some mood swings and depression, but I had already been diagnosed with depression before that, so I'm not really sure if the pills made that much of a difference. They did what they were supposed to do, but I was terrible at remembering to take them on time, so all in all they weren't really worth it. We figured the hormonal IUD would be the next best thing, since it's a one-and-done kind of situation and it's over 99% effective for 5 years.
Unfortunately for me, I had to wait almost 3 weeks to get an appointment with my OB/GYN. That gave me almost three weeks to FREAK THE F*CK OUT. I read tons of reviews and experiences online and I was terrified. Hearing so many people call the insertion process "the worst pain they've ever experienced" and "more painful than childbirth" was enough to seriously turn me off. I almost canceled the appointment half a dozen times. If you're thinking about getting an IUD, don't read too much about it beforehand. Most people have a completely normal experience and move on, but most of the people who post about it online are the ones with more extreme experiences.
The morning of the appointment, I ate some toast and took 800mg of ibuprofen and 10mg of Valium about 40 minutes before my appointment. My fiancé came with me and held my hand the whole time. The anticipation while sitting in the waiting room was terrible. I felt so nauseous just from the anxiety. I didn’t realize I would have to take a urine test right before, so I chugged some water before going back, and then quickly felt the water coming back up as I suppressed the urge to vomit.
When we got back to the exam room, my amazing gyno asked if I had any questions, had me undress from the waist down, and set me up on the table with my feet in the stirrups. She inserted the speculum just like she would for a pap smear, which was mildly uncomfortable in itself. Then she used a Q-tip to rub iodine on my cervix, which felt like some uncomfortable pressure. Then she explained that she would use a uterine sound (a long tube-like device) to measure the depth of my uterus, and if it was too painful, she would stop and inject me with a paracervical block (basically lidocaine shots directly into my cervix).
I wasn’t anywhere close to my period, so I was worried that my cervix would be too hard to pry open, but I tried to focus on taking deep breaths to relax my muscles. The sound hurt. It was worse than a cramp. It was an extremely sharp pain with a weird burning sensation. I definitely yelped and squeezed my fiancé’s hand. But it was over before I could take more than a few deep breaths. Probably a 7/10 on the pain scale. “Okay, let’s try the numbing shots,” my doctor said.
I sat there focusing on my breathing for a few minutes while the nurse went to prep the shots. I’m glad I didn’t see them, because apparently they were huge, according to my fiancé. The shots were almost worse than the sound. It felt like a sharp pain followed by burning. Another 7/10. She did that three times, but I was numbed up by the third one. By the time she inserted the actual IUD, I didn’t feel anything.
Just like that, it was over. Less than 10 minutes overall. I felt okay afterwards, but my whole body was shaking. She told me this was because there was epinephrine in the lidocaine shots, which can increase your heart rate and make you shaky. I felt okay during the car ride, even if I was a little weak and shaky. The cramps started to set in when I got home. They were sharper than normal period cramps and I was definitely hyperaware of my cervix. My back also ached a good bit, which I would attribute to my uterus being retroverted and angled backwards.
Right now, I’m sitting on the couch with a heating pad over my stomach and a TENS unit attached to my lower back. The cramps are getting progressively worse, but still not awful. No worse than what I would feel during a heavy period. If you’re thinking about getting an IUD but are worried about the pain, DO IT! I survived. You will survive too. You can do this. :)
I will update in a few hours with how I’m feeling. Please feel free to comment or shoot me a message if you have any questions! I’d love to talk with you.
EDIT: It's now been about 6 hours since I got the IUD inserted. I feel pretty good! Having some mild cramps, but no worse than during a normal period. Felt super tired afterwards so I took a nap. Also bleeding a little bit but it's lightened up a lot. I'm confident this will go well!
EDIT 2: It's been about 24 hours since I got the IUD inserted. I feel great! The cramps have turned into more of a dull ache throughout my whole abdomen, but I'm fine with some ibuprofen. Slept great last night. :)

2020.11.17 11:21 lennibobby Gyno tube

I've been a longtime lurker of this sub, but only recently started participating. My husband and I have been TTC since March and though that is such a short amount of time my intuition was telling me something wasn't quite right.
In my early 20's I had a ruptured ovarian cyst and a few years later contracted chlamydia from a horrible guy I was dating. These two things alone triggered me to do some investigating once we hit the 6 month point of our TTC journey as I was concerned about PCOS/PID.
Initially I got bloods through my GP and was also sent for a transvaginal ultrasound. My bloods came back perfect, my ultrasound showed polycystic ovaries, but was not severe enough to consider PCOS and everything else seemed fine. My husband had a SA and his count and motility were donor level perfect, but his morphology was borderline bad at 4%.
We didn't think too much of any of these results because all seemed okay to continue trying and we were reminding ourselves how long it can take people to fall pregnant even when things are textbook, but I really wanted a 2nd opinion (because intuition) and was concerned about my tubes.
My GP gave me a referral to go and see an OB/GYN who after hearing my history seemed a little concerned, and then referred me to go and have a HyCoSy test with the leading specialist for this in my state. I did that today, and to say the outcome was worse than expected would be an understatement.
As it turns out, it seems that I have undiagnosed Endometriosis (with minimal symptoms such as bloating and back pain) that has completely blocked both of my fallopian tubes. The fluid made it into my right tube but did not escape the other end, and not even a drop made it into my left tube at all. The procedure itself was some of the worst pain I've ever experienced. I was told the pressure from the fluid pushing on the blockages and having no where to escape is what made it so bad.. but thankfully it was over after no more than 5-10 minutes.
I have received the report which also states my uterus lining is consistent with Adenomyosis (I had never even heard of this before) but I think more investigating will need to go into that as I don't suffer any of the symptoms.
Very nonchalantly the gyno who was doing the HyCoSy looked at me and said "I think you will need to start exploring alternative options to conceive" and just like that my world came crashing down around me. As it stands, with my entirely blocked tubes, I have a 0% chance of conceiving naturally..
I see my OB/GYN on Thursday to discuss the next steps, but I assume it will be a Laparoscopy to confirm the blockages/check for additional Endo and potentially try and clear it out, but from what I've read the likelihood of IVF seems high.
I'm going to leave this sub as the pain of knowing TTC naturally is not an option for us right now is too hard to handle, but before I did I wanted to share our story just incase it helps anyone else in their journey and to see if anyone else had experienced anything similar.
Wishing everyone good luck on their journeys to parenthood!

2020.11.14 06:26 ultraVylette Tube gyno

In August I walked into the ER because my iud was causing me severe pain/discomfort(was inserted by my Dr. 8 weeks before and it was really hard to get up there, that’s another post in itself.) I wasn’t bleeding but my shoulder and lower back was hurting really bad, throbbing/dull aches for 1 wk that wouldn’t go away and I was getting scared. I couldn’t get in at my gyno office so I went w the ER. They ran tests and during the ultrasound I heard the familiar pulsating heartbeat noise, I immediately turned to the tech and asked what was going on, the tech got a wide-eyed “ oh we’re not supposed share results, they don’t like it when we pre-diagnose”. As the ultrasound went on the tech turned a corner(it was vaginal) I heard the pulsating again! Immediately I asked the tech to pls tell me what’s going only to get the same answer.
After waiting sometime the Dr. walked in scratching his head and said that he’d never seen this before and that I had two fertilized eggs; one in my tube and the other in my uterus w the same gestation period of 6 weeks and that legally I couldn’t leave the hospital until the one in my tube was removed because it could rupture and that he was surprised I wasn’t hunched over in pain hemorrhaging. I immediately started crying and called my fiancée/mom. We wanted kids but wanted to wait 2 years which is why I went with Skyla for the short-term. He came to the ER and was able to come in briefly before the surgery even through all the COVID drama.
He spoke w the surgeon(she was nice but a little aggressive asked if we wanted them to remove the entire tube basically making me sterile he immediately said no we want to have more kids) and explained we wanted to keep both if possible but could only keep the babe in my uterus. And put a bigger emphasis on looking for this lost iUD at this point was presumably floating around in my uterus. I’ve never had surgery except for getting my wisdom-teeth removed and I was given xanax to calm be down for that. Before the surgery I just remember crying and saying please don’t hurt the baby and the anesthesiologist explained I was getting a low dose. All I remember is tears falling into my ears and saying the abcs backwards then waking up.
Post-surgery was painful, some of the nurses were nice but the charge nurse had terrible bedside manner. My IV was half way out of my arm and she just looked at it and said your nurse will come and take it out. I had a catheter inserted after they put me under during the surgery and woke up with nausea and a sore throat due to the intubation. I looked at my Abdomen and there were three small incisions filled with clear glue and blood, one in my belly button, one dot over my tube and another in the middle of the V over my uterus if that makes sense. I started crying and was dizzy from the meds knowing that I almost had twins, the iUD was all in vain, and accepting that we going to have a baby before we planned. I’m happy about it now but at the time it was overwhelming.
Post-surgery at home the morning sickness came in big waves. The doctor said since I had two pregnancies I had higher levels of the hcG hormone. Now that I’m in the 2nd trimester all of that subsided but between the pain from the surgery in those 3 places, the soreness from the catheter, and morning sickness the room was spinning for weeks followed by insomnia.
I’m 18 weeks now exactly and everything has leveled out, we are happy and feel like this is our miracle baby and will not return to IUDs after. My main concern now that the baby is getting bigger, sometimes will move against the surgical spots that havnt fully healed which feels sharp and painful. I want to deliver the baby naturally but my Dr. has placed me as a high-risk due to the rough start of my pregnancy experience. I haven’t been able to find to much information online or on the mommie blogs about heterotopic pregnancies mainly ectopic. But I just wanted to share this experience and put this out there in case this has happened to someone else or have had something similar. My Dr. said I’m 1 in 30,000.

2020.11.11 03:03 HFXmer Gyno tube

A few disclaimers to start: In Canada we don't have actual endo specialists as Canada doesn't recognize it has requiring specialized care. Surgeons tend to take it upon themselves to seek out extra training. In my province we only have one who has done this, and her skills are not at specialist level. There is no "get a second opinion".
Waited 14 months to see the one gyno who does endo surgery. I turn 35 this coming Monday. I have been begging for help for my endo since I was 22.
Doc isn't convinced surgery will help. My pain or my fertility. She didn't say no, but she didn't say yes and leaned very heavily on passing the buck to the local IVF place that is private. She admitted she didn't think she could remove it without causing more issues. Total opposite of what shes been telling me for years. For years I've been told try X and if it doesn't work we'll do surgery.
I have to have a bunch of fertility tests that I should have had 5 years ago. One is a test where they inject dye into my uterus and take x-rays to make sure my tubes aren't blocked. Of course, it's not fool proof as endo rarely shows up on any imaging. Sounds... Like a pap smear from hell. Husband is being put through tests too. She also admitted she thinks all our tests will come back fine, but it's like I have to do them to prove endo is the only factor in my infertility.
After the tests results are back (it's gonna take the rest of the year cuz they gotta be timed on certain days of cycle and depend on hospital availability too), then we either have surgery or IVF. I'll be honest, I really don't think she's gonna give me surgery and now because of the change of tune I no longer know if it's the right choice either.
I previously told hubby I didn't want IVF. And I told her if it came to that we'd probably just go on the adoption/foster care list. But she did explain a consultation might show we need less intervention than we think. So I guess I'm open to the consult just to get the information. It's not covered by insurance.
IVF is insanely expensive and typically takes several tries. It would also mean expensive medications not covered and tbh after 6 years on hormones I just don't know if I could honestly handle it. My last round of hormones ruined my life.
Plus, no one seems to care in the health community that this is more than just a fertility issue. That is pressing only because they wasted so much of my time. But I've spent 23 years of my life in horrific pain. I fear my monthly cycles cuz I have no idea how incapacitating it'll be. I miss important life events. I miss work. I would never take my own life but when I'm in that much pain it def seems like a way out. No one seems to care.
She brought up diet changes and I got to say yeah already been doing that for 4 months now. Yes I do chiro and physio. Yes I've tried all the pain meds. Yes I use cannabis. Why do we even entertain the idea that ANY of these things stop endo pain?!? We know they don't.
I am mostly upset because I feel so strung along. I sacrificed so much of my quality of life, I've jumped through so many hoops, only for things to be taken from me time and time again. I try hard not to be a "poor me" person, but I feel like the universe is against me when it comes to family. Not just as a mom myself, but it robbed me of any semblance growing up of "normal". I feel like all I do is survive one event and try to survive the next.
If we had these conversations 5 years ago when I tried to, we could have already had these tests. We could have saved for IVF. Hell my mom left me 22k when she died but I used it to pay off debt and get me through a period of unemployment. I maybe could have done different treatments if I knew I was working toward IVF - that wouldn't have stolen so much of my quality of life from me.
I don't want my life to be defined by whether or not I can have a child or be a parent. I just hurt so deeply that my case, like so many others, has been mismanaged from the start. It should have never come to this.
Folks bring up surrogacy and while I appreciate the ideas, it's legally handled very different here in Canada and I'm not sure I want that.
We are open to adoption/foster and always have been. It's just not the way people think it is here. I've had friends age out waiting a decade to adopt and no prospects due to the matching process. And we are starting late. it ends up being just as expensive and very invasive. Open to it, but I don't see it happening any time soon.
So I'll go through the invasive tests, I'll do the crazy blood work. Waste another year of my life.

2020.11.03 17:34 WW76kh Hysterectomy in a few weeks

I have PCOS and was in the ER over the weekend with a grape sized cyst on my ovary and the other ovary has a small cyst as well...hysterotomy time. I've come to terms with it being time to have one....pcos, fibroids and cervical cancer...it's time. I've had my tubes ties, and I have 5 kids (2bio/3step), so I'm fine with losing the lady parts.
Still...I'm scared shitless!!! Mostly scared about menopause and that I'll turn into some crazed sweating non-libido lady-monster.
Any words of wisdom, comfort or tips are welcome!

Weird update: So I went to my follow-up on Wednesday and the Dr was looking at my ultrasound results from my ER visit and he found a small tumor in my left ovary.
Basically if I hadn't have been in intense pain from my right ovary they never would have ran an ultrasound and would have never found ovarian cancer this early!!!
They're not saying it's cancer, but my Dr scheduled me for another follow-up with the fancy gyno in two weeks and ran a bunch of tumor marking bloodwork. Either way it's pretty much a done deal hysterectomy wise. I suppose I should be thankful for painful ovarian cysts?!?

2020.10.17 17:20 bryterlu Tube gyno

Some backstory, I’ve been trying for a little over a year, I have had one ectopic pregnancy and a chemical pregnancy since starting ttc. I got an HSG with my regular gyno in July that showed a blockage in my left tube. I finally got an appointment with an RE in September and had a bunch of other tests done as well. They are going to repeat the hsg this Monday in their own facility to see if the images are consistent with my first hsg, and then depending on the results it’s quite likely I’ll have my tube taken out. I’ll find out on the same day if/when I need surgery for that.
I’m quite nervous, especially anticipating a possible surgery and removal of my tube, but I’m also really hopeful that I’ll finally get my rainbow baby after whatever is wrong is addressed. If I have to get my tube removed, they will do surgery somewhat soon and are also going to check for endometriosis, which I’m actually quite glad about because I’ve suspected I could have endo for a while now. I could just use some words of encouragement and positive vibes.
