Had surgical removal of IUD. What does operative note mean?

I had an IUD for 5 yrs. I required surgical removal. My operative note was mailed to me and at the bottom it says OPERATIVE FINDINGS: exam under anesthesia revealed an 8-10 week size uterus, mobile and ante verged. The cervix was visualized to be without lesions. Hysteroscopic evaluation of the endometrial cavity showed the Mirena IUD to be at the fundus. No endometrial lesions noted. What does this mean? I m confused!

Thank you for your query.
It means your cervix was fine,
The uterus was slightly enlarged but no abnormality seen.
Your IUD was at the funds which is the topmost part of the uterus.
It was removed.
In essence the findings are normal.
Please do not worry.
Take care.
