1st Appointment News!!!

Well I had my appointment yesterday and I'm very excited to say we have pinpointed a problem! 
Is it weird that I'm excited about that?

I love my new doctor and feel like he really listens to me and he is VERY pro-active. 
After our meeting in his office he grabbed one nurse and sent her to start lab work on me and told another to set up the ultrasound room because, "We need to find out what's going on with Ms. Janelle."
They took 4 tubes of blood (not sure what each were for but the more blood the better, ha) and I went in for the ultrasound.

Shortly after he started I heard him say, "There it is." and he turned the screen to me.  All I could see were black dots everywhere.  He said, "This is what polycystic ovary syndrome looks like."

 This is not mine but its pretty close.  I think every available space on mine was full of black dots.

He told me I had roughly 30 on my right ovary and 40+ on my left.  He is about 99% sure I have endometriosis so we have scheduled my laparoscopic procedure for January 13th.  After which they will start me on medication to reduce the size/number of cysts. 

I felt so morbid because he kept telling me this was a bad case of PCOS and I had a huge grin on my face and said, "So that's good, right?  Now we know what it is."  He just looked at me and said, "Yeah......"

I couldn't be more excited to find out some news even if it isn't all that great.  Thanks for your prayers!

Thanks for checkin' in!!
