Ladies, Helen needs some serrious P&PTs..let's get our mojo working.


Can you please post this to the board.
I need plenty of positive thoughts coming this way.
The surgery did not go as planned. The idea was to go in keyhole & release the adhesions around my ovaries and bowel and maybe remove the ovaries either keyhole or open.
When the Dr got in there he found my bowel is draped over, wrapped around and stuck to everything and he couldn't proceed. So I have 5 small incisions and have had a general anaesthetic and the surgery is not done!

The plan is for me to see a bowel surgeon and the gyn surgeon together & they will plan when to operate together.
The surgery was Friday morning and it is now 1am Saturday. I have just had a catheter put back in as I can't pee! My oxygen won't stay up without stupid tubes in my nose and I'm miserable!
The plan was to go home Saturday pm, but now I'm not sure.
I'll try to keep you updated.

Helen, you'll be in my heart and on my mind the next few days as you try to get this all sorted out.

I didn't see this before I posted on FB. Helen was saying it wasn't too bad. What an ordeal. I hope they can find the best way to help you, Helen. (((Hugs)))
