Hi ceegee, thank you so much for your response!
It really helped put my nerves at ease. It always helps me to know that what I’m feeling is not uncommon and that other people have experienced it. I had guessed that maybe it had something to do with my period. I started it today as I expected. This is the first time having my period since the procedure so I’m trying to decide if I should keep dilating or not because it makes me nervous for some reason. I think I’m just going to try to pretend I’m not even on my period and see how things feel.
There are definitely all sorts of weird feelings and pokes and pains while dilating, but none of them come close to the burning hopeless feeling I had before. So I’m just excited I can be dilating at all. My goal is just to try to get completely used to #3, then move up to #4, and so on.
Btw congrats on how far you’ve come and all you’ve accomplished! That must be so exciting. I can’t wait until I can say the same. Lots to look forward to! 😀
