Last Friday I had my surgery. They made 3 incisions in my abdomen that are only about an inch long and filled my abdomen with carbon dioxide so that they could see everything easily. They went in laparoscopicly and removed the IUD which had embedded itself in some tissue between my uterus and ovary. It left a little hole which they said should heal very quickly. The worst part of recovery was the pain that the carbon dioxide causes. It manifests itself in your shoulders and chest and sometimes spasms making it impossible to breathe. But that is mostly over now and I'm just waiting for the incisions to heal. So it was a successful surgery and now I can recover and get my body back! Hurray!! Thanks for all of your prayers and thoughts!
