After surgery, I was shown a softball size fibroid tumor weighing close to three pounds! It had been pressing on my internal organs and was embedded into my uterus. I also had four other fibroids that were much smaller in size behind the uterine wall and three ovarian cysts, two on my right ovary and one on my left. These were removed as well. I also had a condition called adenomyosis, which is the thickening of the endometrium wall. I also learned this is why my periods were so difficult. Dr. del Junco Jr. also informed me that if I had not had my children when I did, I more than likely would never have conceived because of the adenomyosis. I was shocked by all the conditions I had been living with all these years and relieved to get them removed from my body.
My recovery was incredibly fast. I was up and walking the next day after surgery, amazed by how great I felt, and didn’t seem to need any pain medication. The nurses were fabulous and they really helped to aid in my recovery. I was so thankful to finally be here, on the road to recovery, and I could tell within a couple of days that all the pressure I had felt from that fibroid was gone. I already felt so different. I couldn’t wait to heal and feel anew each day after.
I am now three months from recovery and I can honestly tell you that I feel like a completely new woman. My periods have been better than I had ever had in my life. I feel like a teenager again and most importantly, I have my life back. My family has noticed a huge difference in my health and attitude.
I am forever grateful to Dr. del Junco Jr. and for finding him on the Internet. Because of Female Alternative Surgery, I gained back my faith in medicine and have a huge respect for Dr. del Junco Jr. and his staff for believing in the procedure and for helping women like me. We as women need to ban together and share more about our symptoms, and find the answers. I found the answers within myself by refusing a hysterectomy. I knew that there was an absolute solution to my persistent problems.
To the women out there who are suffering, I want to tell you most of all that you are not alone. There is an answer out there. You have a choice and a procedure you can believe in and that can help you. Never take one doctor’s medical opinion, but most of all, stand firm on your own belief of you. I feel blessed to be a woman and I will carry that female passion into my menopausal years, naturally and gracefully. I treasure my female self and this has brought me full circle and I am basking in the light. I celebrate the new me every single day. This is what I wrote to Dr. del Junco Jr.
It takes a leap of faith and a heck of a great surgeon to fix me. I challenge every woman out there making these difficult decisions concerning your female body, your female house, to look deep inside yourself and ask that question, what is it that you really want and make that call that will give you the answers.
I am now nearly two years into my recovery. I still feel like a new person each and every day. I honestly hope that this message is clear that you do have a voice and a choice. I have been to my female gynecologist again to get my annual check ups and there is no detection of fibroid tumors. She can’t even tell that I had surgery, this is how successful it has been for me. So for every woman out there on your journey, just know there are answers out there.
Thanks for letting me share my story about my female health and about A Female’s Journey from the Heart. We all need to get together as women to share and know that there are solutions out there. I bless every woman on that journey and know that there is help for you.
Thank you for letting me share this story.
