When I had my LSH in 9/03...

I certainly remember the recovery room. I had the head wrap and I almost always wake up when they yank out the breathing tube. I cough and boy does it hurt your tummy. I complained of thirst and they gave me ice chips. Normally, I CANNOT chew ice...but I did with no problems...2 cups full. Then they took me to my room and made ME move from the gurney to the bed. My mom and best friend were in the hall crying b/c of the yelping I was doing. The LSH is not so bad for recovery. I was back at work in 2 weeks.

Now, I'm having my ovaries and cervical stump removed via a c-section type scar this time...haven't stopped a period since the LSH. I'm considerably anxious over the abdominal incision and moving from bed to bed.

I love the tips that I get from these forums.

I'm taking my Ipod this time and asking for DH to be there in recovery.
