well, its been a while so i thought I'd update...
i have gone back to the urologist for my post-op follow up. he said that on the x-ray he couldn't see anything, which means there are no stones more than 1mm in size! that means that whatever is left in the kidney should be small enough to pass without much if any pain at all and i should be able to do it on my own. my surgery went really well. he did say that i may have some lingering pain when a piece gets into a weird place, and could take up to 3 months before all pieces are out. i go back in august for my next appt to make sure no more stones have formed.
i have also gone back for my 6 week post partum appt with my OBGYN, and that appt went well too. she said my incision site looks good and healing properly. i asked her about a VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section), but she said no. :( the main reason for that is because there is a small chance that my uterus could rupture during delivery because of the scar which has made it weaker. if it does rupture, there is nothing they can do at that point for baby and i could even bleed out. so my next baby will be born via c-section again.
i return to work this week, and it is really hard to think about. on one hand I'm ready to get back into a schedule, but on the other, I'm not ready to leave kyndall for so long. the longest i have been away from her was when i had my kidney surgery, but that wasn't as long as a work day.
we go back to her doctor march 3rd for her 2 month appt and first round of shots. i think as of now, shes about 7 and a half pounds.
thats all for now.
