Sick Leave- yay!

I am going in to hospital to have a laparoscopy tomorrow because they suspect that, on top of PCOS, I have Endometriosis. I am not too fussed about it, I have had a couple of laps before and they aren't a deal. Hopefully they can remove it and I will be free of some of the pain I have had lately. The only problem is that they have mentioned before that I may be too fat for the surgery. So that is going to be humiliating/worrying if they try to slice me open and then realise my fat is in the way and they can't do it. Sometimes I just wonder how in the world I became this person that is possibly too fat for surgery.

Aside from that, I am excited about the week of sick leave I get along with this surgery. I do think it is a sad state of affairs when you are almost looking forward to surgery because it means you won't have to go to work. I have been feeling like I am about to have a nervous breakdown at work lately, so I think the timing of this is quite good. This surgery could quite possibly be saving my career (and the lives of some of my co-workers)before I go postal.

The other exciting part about this surgery is my surgeon. I met him last week at a pre-op appointment and he is just my type. I swear to god that he was flirting with me too. OK, so complementing me on my teeth isn't exactly pillow talk, but it was the way he said it... I never think guys are flirting with me, but I walked away from this appointment feeling like a giggly school girl for the first time in ages. I guess I better shave my snail trail before surgery, must impress the surgeon! ;-)


  1. Ooooh, spunky doctor... yay! Hope it all goes well sweetie, I'll be thinking of you.

  2. Best of luck with the surgery Tully.

    Hot doctors/ surgeons do make ya feel giddy inside. May that high point have you smiling for days. ;)

  3. Hope your surgery goes well - Good luck!

  4. Oh ... this has all the makings of a romance novel! The hot young doctor nurses you back to health and therefore skinnydom and you sail off into the sunset. :) Good luck with the lap.

  5. Best Wishes. Hope it goes smoothly and alleviates your pain. Keep us posted otherwise we'll worry.

  6. Hmmm. Just a question, if you had endometriosis, would you definetely know you had it or that something was definetelywrong in that region? I have possible suspicions of that myself.
    Hope your procedure goes well.

  7. -leaves my customary BIG BIG hug. In this case big PINK hug.

    Hope they give you some great drugs to make you space happy after surgey.

  8. lol@snail trail--I've never heard that phrase before!

    Best of luck on a speedy recovery :)

  9. I hope everything went well for you on Monday!

    I know what you mean about "feeling excited" for the time off work. I used to have this job I REALLY hated and I used to "wish" something "mildly bad" would happen to me on the way to work so I didn't have to go....Very sad indeed!!!!


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
