I’m three months post op now and honestly I feel better than I have in years. I’m so glad I had the surgery. It sounded drastic at the time but 12 day cycles were exhausting me. I was either bleeding or pre menstrual pretty much all of the time.
The constant hormone fluctuations meant I spent half my time trying to not snap at someone or burst into tears. Now I wake up with energy and look forward to the day ahead. Honestly I wish I’d had it done far sooner.
I’m running more than I ever have in my life, the extra energy had to go somewhere. I’m certainly not an ultra runner but 21 miles in a week feels like a success to me. More importantly I love it, the freedom of being outside, just me and the dog plus very loud rock music.
CrossFit is taking longer to get back to as my hormone levels with hrt are not quite right which is affecting strength but generally I feel amazing so I don’t care.
Here’s to hopefully feeling better and better as I get further away from the operation.
*edit, the op wasn’t of course just due to short cycles. I was bleeding very heavily and had a dangerous thickening of the endometrial layer. However being free of the short cycles is absolutely fricking awesome
