It seems like yesterday, but it’s been two years since my surgery – what a great gift, having no fibroid worries any more. This is the way it should be, but apparently we need to search for answers before they are revealed to us. The internet is a great help, no question about that, but even more meaningful is our own journey through the unknowns of life – that’s when surgeries like FAS, inventions and creativity replace the laws of averages. Thank God for finding the answers we need, when we do need them.
I hope there will be hundreds and thousands more stories like mine. More successes, more smiles and happier people. That’s what life is all about.
I, for one, will always remember the nurse who was there at my bedside, the pastel colors in my hospital room, the first time I saw my own surgery on video, being totally fascinated at the advances of science. I could feel my body healing itself, literally. And so it did, in record time. That very moment I vowed to do my best to spread the knowledge – and so I still am. It’s, you might say, a matter of pride.
Thank you Dr.DJ for playing the leading part in this life scenario – nothing short of a maverick!
Enjoy springtime – my favorite season!
Great to hear from you – we really are kindred spirits! Remember, how uncertain you were, how your previous experiences gave you that feeling of disbelief that anything that good can happen? I realized a long time ago that our former pain is real for many other women, and we, somehow re-live those very moments every time we hear someone’s desperation. This is not only a technically effective surgery, but also an emotional experience taking us from the lowest lows to the highest highs.
I commend you for being here for others to share your knowledge. This is the only way we can have a contribution, be it ever so small, to the future happiness of others. I smile every time I search my memory banks – very, very nicely done!
All the best to you and your family – I’m all for toasts and celebrations!!
I heard you have been posting here. I was not surprised because I know how happy you have been with FAS. Has it been 2 years already?! Geez, time sure does fly.
Keep in touch, Mica.
Wow, what a surprise!!! If you are not a busy beaver, then I don’t know who is! What a familiar name to hear from on this board!! For anyone who doesn’t know Donna – just yet – she has a wonderful website helping women with info on fibroids. I remember a time when I was suggesting a chat where the doctor could explain more about FAS – perhaps this may still be feasible? Donna, you have already conducted at least one chat and are familiar with the net. Jump in, anyone?
I can’t believe two years have gone by so incredibly fast. Funny, I can retrieve the most minute details from those days – people, conversations, emotions – never in my life have I considered surgery as a pleasant event, until I was faced with losing a part of myself. I would fight again for this cause, just as adamantly.
In fact a national business women’s group I belong to as the past president will be addressing health issues next season. FAS is the first on my list and I most definitely welcome any input from Dr. DJ’s office. In case the doctor has any spare time for us, we could certainly invite him to join our group as a honorary member and guest speaker!
Good health to all,
|Dr. del Junco Jr. (Doctor)||
Muchas Gracias, doctor!!
I will keep you posted as our Board is firming up the schedules from September on. As I mentioned FAS very briefly, many faces turned in disbelief, as if this were some Cinderella story!! Now that I think about it, IT IS!
With your permission, I would like to post here a special poem I wrote while the sands of Santa Monica beach reminded me of our perpetual struggle to find answers in life, to overcome adversity and become stronger by sharing. It’s part of my current collection “LOVE – Letters to Old Souls for All Time” under my pen name of Sorana Berequette and definitely one of my favorites.
” THE TIMELESS SANDS
Once upon a time
But the wind – yes, the wind is my enemy!
But, what if the wind
A place called:
There, I could live among
No longer alone! ”
Keep up the great work, so that your fans will be just like this little grain of sand!
Long time no email…yes, I did change my address, I do this periodically!!!. Two years seem like a long time, but imagine for how many years women still live with “female” problems. We are the lucky few, as they say, the ones who had that extra chance given to us – and we took it. But there are others, so many others who are still searching…Hopefully, they will be encouraged by reading our posts and asking us questions. FAS is simple in concept, delicate in execution, powerful in outcome, yet poetic in meaning. Given the right timing, I most certainly could write about it indefinitely, but as space is limited…see, now you spark me again!! Must be our happy energy flowing through cyberspace…may it spread its wings over all of us…
All the best to you and your family,
