If Your Hysterectomy is Your First Surgery | Part 3

If Your Hysterectomy is your first surgery part 3Continued from "If Your Hysterectomy is Your First Surgery Part 2"

You will wake up in the recovery room and, except for pain, be completely unaware that everything is over. Remember that chemical amnesia? Yup, it works. In fact, you will probably ask the nurses several times if it’s really over. Don’t worry, nobody will think you’re nuts. It’s part of the waking up process. The nurses will probably be talking loudly and tapping your shoulder to try and wake you up more. You may have a large plastic sheet over you that is filled with hot air. It’s just warming you up. Other things they use to warm you are warm blankets over your body or around your head. Really, they’re kept in a large warming cabinet and they actually feel very warm. They feel sooo good, too!

After you’re awake enough, (i.e. you can maintain your own temperature, you're able to nibble some ice chips without feeling nauseous or throwing up, and your blood pressure and heart rate are close to normal) you will be brought to your room. Nurses there will ask you more questions and get you settled into your bed and comfortable, at least as comfortable as possible. You will probably doze off and on for the next day or so, and you may not remember much.
