I am 4 days post-op now. My surgery went fine. I had difficulty breathing after and it very much scared me and my sister who was with me. I was on O2 until the next morning. Now I am breathing fine
Except for when I cry. Cry at the drop of a hat I do!
My hospital stay was terrible except for the first night when I truly had an "angel" for a nurse. After that it was fend for yourself and my roommate even ripped oepn her stitches. I thought she was doing too much based on what I had read on this site or I thought Iwas being a big baby. My husband was my knight in shing armour when he arrived to drive me home from that castle which was more like a prison!
WEll, everyone heals differently I know from a thread I read first day home. But I hope some of you can offer me some personal understanding
Talking to others or my doctor I feel not understood.
How am I doing? I have hot flashes that are not too bad. Nothing compared to old period pain... but to me they confirm the hormone factor in my emotional changes for it takes little to set me off crying and feeling worthless to all. I started vit E and black cohash today..hoping they will help. My obgyn says no hrt (i have read this too and was in agreement) or it can cause the endo to come back.
I need to have a BM. It is hurting not to at this point. My pain level is less but it really hurts sometimes and especially if I pull on the left side gettingup and down at all. I did pull it really bad once in the hospital and the docotor told me it is normal to have burning searing pain like that sometimes from how they tie off the stitches inside. (I wish the nurses would have told me this) I have Lortab to take and it works but I keep wakingup at night so I asked for something else stronger for night time only today and the doc said take some tyneol. I'm sorry but this is more than tyneol pain...anyone withme on this or am I a baby for sure? MaybeI just needed to ask for a sleep aid but was afraid too after their tone and response to my request. I am hoping my pain level will drop so much this will not be an issure soon. How long for your pain to stop?
WEll, my family and friends are being great. I hate crying so much on them and depending so much on them. I was wondering if it would be better for me to be alone or should I continue to let them come and help?
WEll, I better get up..it's hurting more and more to sit here! Sure you know what that is like.
Happy I could get on and type.
I would not have faired so well so far had it not been for the tips and advice I read on this site.
keep up the good work...
PRaying for healing in His time for us all...
