I am starting this a little late, my apologies. I thought this would be a neat way to express some things and maybe shed some light into the process for anyone thinking of having the tubal ligation.
I am covered by Tricare Prime so my experience may be a little unique. I am dealing with Army doctors who so far have given me little hesitation on this. I did have to wait 4 weeks for a “in case you change you mind” period. But other than that smooth sailing. My surgery is on 26 September and I am planning on taking as many mental notes as possible to share with those of you who want to know what happens to your body AFTER for future reference. *grins*
Today I had the lab work done for my surgery. You have to have it done in a 72 hour window prior to the operation. So LK and I braved the gate guards and 100% ID check to get on post and visit the lab. It isn’t too bad there, no one is REALLY giving me a hassle. Although today was fun, in the lab a woman actually GASPED .. like in movies and cartoons … when I told her I had no children and was having a tubal ligation on Wednesday and wanted no children. She went on about how great kids were but then farther into the conversation said things like ” I wish I had waited” and “Maybe 3 is too many” … HELLO … and I am the one with troubles?? Okay … well it is getting close to my bedtime.
