Four Week Follow Up (January 27, 2012)

I had my four week follow up Friday.  It went very well again.  Everything is healing very nicely.  The only issue is my hips.  They are scaring and poofing again.  In fact, so badly, that I have to have a procedure to remove what they call "dog ears" again.  They are going to try to laparoscopically lipo the scar tissue, but he said they may have to re-open the incision and cut it out.  It will be in office under local anesthesia and should take less than an hour.  I scheduled it for May 8th.

I also had a follow up with the gynecologist.  We talked a lot about the hormones and my issues as well as how I resolved it.  I explained what happened on the Nuva Ring and told him I saw my local midwife to try something else.  I started the large Combi patch this week and so far it is great.  When I first went in they put me on the small patch, but after a couple months they bumped it up so that when the time is right I can step down before going off of it completely.  That will be in 30 years or so.  I have to change this patch every 3 days.  I am not going to lie, it gets annoying.  And it leaves sticky residue.  But I am not crazy so I have a lot to be thankful for.
