Oophorectomy, Physical Therapy, Lymphedema, Oh my

Tomorrow’s the big oophorectomy – ovary removal. Probably takes longer to get to Rush than take them out, actually. It’s outpatient. Instant menopause. Bracing for that.

Saw Dr. K’s team today. Next meeting is not until MAY! Progress! He’s recommended physical therapy to get better range of motion in my right arm. I have stiffness in my neck and some difficulty sleeping on my right side, this should help. And added some massage techniques so that I can keep the skin and scar tissue loose. Plan to have reconstruction next fall after we evaluate skin in May.

The place I called to start therapy has a lymphedema specialist. So, I asked for a script for that too. Apparently the swelling can come on at anytime. I start next week, as long as all goes well tomorrow.

All in all, doing really well. Healing. Getting used to my new skin. Have my final Mindfullness seminar class tonight at Wellness House. Sad that its ending. Glad I signed up. Will aid greatly in the recovery from tomorrow’s surgery.

    Praying all goes well today! Good old menopause, unfortunately another hurdle for you to get over, but I know you will do well. Take control and don’t let it control you! You are such an inspiration to so many!
