After Surgery #2, my doctor scheduled a two week checkup. I assumed the checkup was to make sure all incisions were healing properly. I mean, I had a total of nine incisions in my stomach. Good odds one could get infected.

I ended up be partly correct on the purpose of my checkup. The doctor did want to make sure all incisions were properly healing. She also wanted to meet with me because one of the pathology reports showed cancer. Yes, cancer. I have Stage 1C Ovarian Cancer.

Before I could begin chemo, another surgery needed to take place. Surgery #3 was going to be a hysterectomy.  

Last Monday, Surgery #3 took place. I'm proud to report I rocked Surgery #3! I did better with Surgery #3 than Surgery #2. In true blogger fashion, I have a few pictures to post of this experience.

Continuing with tradition, we took a Surgery Selfie.

I received so much hospital jewelry during my overnight visit. Surgery #3, I gained two new bracelets...Allergy and Fall Risk. Awesome. Personally, I think the Fall Risk was a bit much. I don't feel like I was a Fall Risk.

Recovering from Surgery #3 has been colorful. One of my Get Well presents was an adult coloring book. Here's my first masterpiece. Not bad, huh?

So...we've gone from constipation to cancer. This might be my biggest adventure yet.

So glad the surgery went better then before! (I had fall risk bands when I had all my C-sections so don't take offense, or maybe we both should?)
