New womb today

So here I am just about to go into hospital in London, to have an abnormality from my womb removed, a wall that's takes up most of the cavity of my uterus and extends down to my cervix. This will give me an 80% increased chance of carrying a baby. I was diagnosed 2.5 years ago. The first doctor said it wouldn't be a problem but didn't realise at the time, how big it was. I'm getting treated on the NHS, and have travelled all the way from Devon!Here it goes... See you on the other side.xx

Hi keeKee21. Well that sounds like some "septum"! Still, It's good to hear that you're now on the way to getting your "new womb". You will need a bit of recovery time, so make the most of it. It's great to hear of ladies such as yourself being able to have such surgery nowadays. Years ago the expertise just wasn't available. Fortunately, I do hear of more and more success stories following surgery, so I wish you HUGE luck and a speedy recovery. Diane

Hi ladies, unfortunately they us to stop the surgery due to bleeding and only managed to remove 20%, but we are on the road now. Next surgery is in the 8th to have the rest removed. Currently abit uncomfortable, but taking time out of work to heal for the next op. Thank you for all your kind messages.xx

Been thinking of you. I'm sorry they didn't manage to get it all in one go, but guess they have to do what is best at the time no matter how frustrating it must be for you! Glad they at the very least managed to remove some of it, so as you say, you're on the road. Trying to be as positive as possible today so here goes.......you've gotten closer to that 80% better chance of carrying to term!!!!!! If that's annoying to hear I'm really sorry hun, and please know it was meant from the kindest place I know how frustrating it can be to not get the result you so very much are expecting, but if you're able to see the bit of positive then give yourself a bloody big pat on the back. And hey, if you're not, don't beat yourself up, that's perfectly understandable too! Hope your not too uncomfortable and being looked after. Lots of gentle hugs xxx

Thank you for your kind reply. I was a little disheartened at first, but just thinking now it's only another 2 weeks till the next one, and by March I can't start injections to get me ovulating again. Xxx
