Yes, I do need a hysterectomy. I will get it in September and could be off work for up to 8 weeks. My doctor was surprised the fibroids hadn't been caught last year at my annual.
So, today, I was at the barn filling in one of the other volunteers on what I had learned at my doctor's appointment when one of the barn workers came up and joined us.
I briefly shared why I had to have a hysterectomy, and that my uterus was enlarged to the size of a 5 month pregnancy.
She said "OH! Well now that all makes sense! You are very physically fit everywhere except your belly and I just couldn't figure it out! I didn't think you were pregnant, but I wasn't going to ask!"
Yay! Despite my tummy being 3 sizes larger than my hips, I still look physically fit!
Now if I could eat more than 1/2 a cup of food with out feeling full. It wouldn't be bad if I felt satisfied, I just feel hungry and stuffed!
