Ok, first off, sorry I didn’t get a chance to update yesterday. It was a VERY long day and I crashed really early last night. But onto the news…
Had an ultrasound. I was at around 1,200 grams before. Yesterday? About 650 grams!! So we’ve cut the size down almost in half so far!! He had wanted to get me down to around 600 grams for surgery. He could do it at 1,200 but it would mean much longer under anesthesia and bleeding risks. Well, now that we’re down, he’s ready to get me on the schedule. I don’t have a specific date yet. His nurse will be following-up with me to schedule me about a month or so from now.
Sometime around the end of September I will be having my surgery.
He thinks that by then, I may even be down to about 400 grams because the Lupron is still in my system for another two months. So even better. The Lupron TOTALLY worked for me.
Right before surgery, I’ll have a final ultrasound just to get a last-minute check on things and I’ll also need bloodwork for cross and type for the surgery. But basically, we’re in the motions and stages of pre-op – finally and officially. Holy crap, now it starts getting real. (And really scary!!)
