love you sisters
i am eleven days post op now and reach for less hydromorphone every day.
in canada...this drug is seven times more powerful than morpheine, but i really feel as if i haven't taken anything....but then if i don't....the pain is there with a vengeance.
i spent one full week in hospital. pooped on day eight after ct scan showed a highway of trouble so to speak.
prunes and a ton of them are my best friend...with a side order of colace and senna
my ovaries were lovely according to surgeon and were kept.
i have some amazing pics of my massive uterus and cervix. the visual has really helped me.
i am getting out of my big tall bed better aand the wedge pillow really does help for day laying. it really is how i tell the difference between day and night...wedge pillow on, wedge pillow off lol
i do spend most of my time in bed and in solitude.
very easily winded and sweating alot. temperature changes are strangely intense. random pains out of nowhere that are not gas or healing or pulling have just started on the left lower abdomen.
i had asked every woman i know to ask every woman they know and so on....for a piece of red fabric.....red to symbolize the blood....i turned this into a verrrrrrrrrrry ceremonial and special healing cloak and it is a beauty, an amazing source of comfort containing red items right down to girlie gitch lol. my point to ppl going in, would be to do something important with what is about to occur in your evolution, this is a sacred time and should be honoured in whatever way resonates with you.
the first two days out of surgery by far were the easiest....thankyou manual pain pump! i won\t lie....the first week sucks......but it really is do-able. just be gentle with yourself and for heaven sakes resist the urge to get bored and get up to much. a little walking is important for you,....alot can be done too easily.
hope this helps someone
