Well... the waiting REALLY is the worst part. I didn't honestly believe it till now.
I had TVH on 4/23 and got home a little over and hour ago. I feel pretty good. I expected to feel like someone ran me over with an 18 wheeler, but instead only feel like I did a zillion and one too many sit-ups. Doc said the prolapse was more than we both thought. Before surgery, the cervix wasn't 'hanging out'. When I was under anesthesia, she looked and said it was maybe an inch from falling out. So this was the right thing to do. We both hope my pain will stop and I will be back to living a normal life and pain free. I came home with 35 percocets and 90 800 mg motrins. Miss my toradol that I was getting in the castle (LIW's ~ ask for this via IV, it's great).
Ok.. had to be there at 5:30 a.m. ~ played the hurry up and wait game. Doc almost cancelled me cause I was telling the nurses I was leaving if they didn't get me in the OR soon. I wasn't being a chicken, was hungry, tired and aggrivated. I sat from 5:30 a.m. to about 1:30 when I was finally taken to OR. I got versed and don't remember much about anything after that shot of happy juice. Apparenytly, I was asking for Toradol before I even left the OR.. doc just giggled and said 'give it to her'. I got to my room around 4:30-5 p.m. and was up and walking within 30 minutes after getting into my room. Had the cath out about 10 minutes after my walk. Got IV out yesterday morning. Was on oral pain meds and fluids right away. Demerol shots in recovery.. percocet and motrin once in my room. Gosh I miss the toridol. My pain.. it's not bad at all, really it isn't. Passing A LOT of gas.. which is good. Haven't had BM yet, but waiting patiently for that. Pain level never got above a 6. Once in room.. it stayed at about a 4. Went for lots of little walks while in castle... nurses and doc were shocked to see me up and walking so soon.
So, here I am.. at home.. feel good. Gonna get me something to eat (probably some soup) then off to bed for a nap. I remember all my princess training and am behaving myself. DH is taking very good care of me.. what a man! :-)
It's nice to finally be a
Will post more when I feel up to it. All you LIW's.. hang in there. The wait is the worst part of it all. You will feel SO much better afterwards. All sisters.. big hugs and thanks for seeing me thru the pre-op worries and wait. Im here for all of you, just like you are for me. Without this site, I would of had been completely lost and felt alone.
