So this week I was at the hospital and was told by the surgeon that my disease was stage III with an ovarian cyst and extensive adhesions. Im to have more surgery and my ovary removed, they cannot give me any answers about fertility yet...but it 'may not be easy'. Good for me then that I am not insane, and I have been telling a doctor something was wrong other than 'IBS' since I was FOURTEEN. I am now 33!!!!!
I am in a waiting room on my own as OH had to work...there were a few other women waiting for the same clinic as me. However why did we have to be surrounded by pregnant ladies and their ample bumps in skin tight tops to display their success, maternity notes held like a badge of honour and the lovely couple who sat next to me to fuss over their latest scan photo. Shouldn't there be some kind of policy or seperate waiting area? To me it seems as sensitive as putting poor women who have miscarried in the maternity ward.
Does this bother anyone else or is it just me being bitter and hormonal?
