Another 'getting better' milestone that I recently reached that no one had told me about is that (as one of my friends put it), my 'womanhood' has returned. According to the doctors, it is normal for women not to have their period for several months after surgery. For me, my body decided immediately after surgery to make sure that I was not pregnant and then pause for four and half months before deciding it's okay to reproduce again. Silly body.
I guess it is a positive step though as it means that my body is getting healthier and my hormones have somewhat adjusted to all the medication. Yay for another random step forward!
