So, I’ve had 3 children in total and since I’ve had many health complications….separated abdominal muscles (diastis rectis), an umbilical hernia, adhesion problems and bowel problems. Going from a healthy young lady to one with many complications was difficult and having to change my lifestyle was even harder. But, after going to the doctors the other day…I’ve found a new appreciation for my life…even with its many complications. After going to an ultrasound appointment to check my abdomen again, this time they found a large lump behind where the hernia sits. I freaked! Next thing i know, I’m getting a biopsy to check for cancerous tissue. I felt like this was it. The one complication that i couldn’t live with or through. For 3 weeks I waited for the results. It was agonizing. The results come in and the doctor says… “what a relief! Thought we REALLY had a huge problem there for a moment.” What a relief! Not cancerous. But, still needed to be removed. And once i can afford it i could have it removed along with the hernia correction and having my abdominal problems corrected. So after that scare, I’m sort of thankful for my many little complications…because if it means pain each day but being able to live (cancer free) to see my children grow…then i’m glad to live with them.
