Worries and Fears

My recovery is going well. I'm still sore in some places but overall, my energy is better and I'm walking around better as well. But yesterday, I hit a sad spot. I was thinking about my future regarding my surgery and it's making me wonder if I have made a good choice.

First off, my hernia repair was done with mesh so I have this square of mesh inside of me. I was skeptical of it when my surgeon/doctor first told me about it. But I figured that I didn't have a choice and so went with it. But now as I'm researching about mesh, I see all these stories about how the mesh constantly makes people hurt. I'm hoping to the Lord above that doesn't happen to me, that I will recover and barely feel this mesh inside of me. It's nerve racking to think of the future, but I do it so often.

The biggest thing I'm worried about however, is the future when it comes to having another baby. The mesh is attached to my muscles and so, it won't stretch with a baby whenever I'm pregnant. I'll have to go through pain of the mesh along with pain of pregnancy so it's making me wonder if it's even worth planning for #2. If Sofia will be enough for me. Juan says that if it comes down to it, he would be ok with just one child. But what about me? What do I think? I just always thought I would have more than one kid. I wanted more than one kid. A brother or sister for Sofia to play with, to take care of. She's already so distant from kids anyway.

So many thoughts in my mind regarding this surgery and I wish they would go away, but they won't until I talk to my surgeon at my post-op appointment. But that's not until next wednesday so that's a lot of days to think.

What about you? Are there any mommies out there who are or have gone through the same thing I have? Do you have any advice? If so, I would sure love to hear it. I need all the advice and good thoughts I can get right now.
