Surgery

Good Morning!

After a long weekend of visiting the CVS Pharmacy, I get the news from the doctor about Jen's surgery.

According to doc, Jen has an aggressive form of Endometriosis. For those of you who don't know:

Endometriosis is an awful disease. In its basic form endo is the lining of the uterus found in other parts of the body. This lining is essentially toxic to our body (which is why woman get rid of this lining once a month).

The problem comes when your body tries to rid itself of this toxin, and it has no way of throwing it out. That's when the pain begins. The body tries to use every organ to throw it out, and in fact, makes the endo pain worse by creating scar tissue that intertwines the body like a spider web made of thorns.

There is very little advertising about this disease...so its hard to identify the true source. The only way to truely find out if endo exisits is through surgery. Jen just recently had a laparoscopy and a hysteroscopy.

I'll shed more light on these in the future.

Time to get the results!
