This past Monday, Oct 28th....despite our best efforts, my tube started to rupture and I was experiencing internal bleeding. This article was the key I needed to diagnose my own rupture and get me to go to the ER - The Lancet http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(11)61901-6/fulltext. My doctor performed a successful surgery and removed my entire right fallopian tube.
[On the bright side my other tube and ovaries are perfectly healthy. I also wanted to note that there is a theory that an appendectomy I had when i was 12 (for a ruptured appendix) had screwed up my right tube with scar tissue etc, and that's why my embryo got caught in the tube. In case you are a woman with a past appendectomy definitely take note.]
The tour dates cancelled are Vancouver, Bellingham, Portland, and Seattle.
This is a very serious and sad issue, and I am hoping that everyone be kind and understanding. Babies never survive this complication, and sometimes the mothers do not either. Wishing Miss Carlton the best for a healthy (and fertile, if that is what she wants) future.
