I have a really difficult decision on my hands, and I thought some of you would relate.
This comes 3 and a bit weeks after my lap removed endo on my UV fold, left side of pelvic wall, and a nodule on one ovary. They also left in some on my ureter as they needed my consent to take that out separately. Welcome Sarah to moderate:severe endometriosis. Oh and don't let me forget the present at the end - the mirena! The device that makes your periods miraculously disppear AFTER 6 MONTHS OF IRREGULAR BLEEDING AND PAINFUL CRAMPS.
2 weeks after the op I got an infection in two wounds, and had to take antibiotics. Yay.
Sorry for the boring details, but just to give you context of the situation:
I'm a musician, and my band have received some funding to go to this thing called the Folk Alliance International, a big gathering of musicians and industry professionals to showcase artists and book them for future concerts and festivals. It's a bit like the folk music olympics, without the medals.
Now I have to decide whether I am fit enough to go. It's draining me to the point of madness. Will I manage the 1am showcase? Will I be able to play all parts right? Will I be able to focus? Will the travelling tire me out too much? It's so hard to know how I will be in two weeks time - we would fly out on the 13th Feb. There are so many what ifs, and I can't just live in the moment, because the moment now consists of steadily increasing cramping and fatigue. Oh yeah...waiting on the first period after the op and now with mirena; bracing myself for that one.
Should I stay or should I go? It's a brain-fuck. I KNOW you will understand! xx
