did I mention my uterus was 2800 grams? 10-13-2011 - 09:07 AM
or 6 pounds

Seriously, myself and my guests looked at one another like, ***. When the pictures were shown to my mother {while I was in recovery}, she said she wanted to take off running, LOL
I can't wait until my post op appointment Monday to see more. Perhaps, I can sell some to the Enquirer, LOL

it's kind of hard to believe six days ago I had my uterus removed. Today, I feel ok, BORED but OK. These are the days that can get you in trouble. Yesterday, I felt fine too, my mother went to work and my dad left for his Doc appointment. So I was home alone.

I got up to make homemade waffles {I've been dying for them}and felt light headed, my chest felt heavy, and I was short of breathe. Instantly, I thought I could be forming a blood clot. Those things can kill you. I called the Doc office, of course I was told to get to the ER. I explained to the receptionist I was home alone and it would be another 2 hours before I could get there.

uh?? HELLO?? duh...

her response, you need to get there! Yeah, I knew, I can't believe I said that. Realistically, in a true emergency, who calls the Doc...one just goes...

I couldn't think of how to get there since everyone was at work and I didn't want to bother them. Also, I wasn't sure if I had a true emergency or just overreacting. I thought about driving myself but then thought, what if I pass out while driving. Regardless, I was scared being home alone. what if I pass out, I could die here alone I laid on the sofa, numb and scared to move. I texted my SO (he's a physician) to tell him what was going on....

he was on his way...

I hate the hospital, I spent all of 6 hours in the ER just for them to tell me, nothing was wrong and that some clotting should occur because I just had surgery.

feeling good...

pain medication is strange. Ideally, it does what it's supposed to; yet, confusing because while taking away the pain, it tricks you into thinking your better than you really are. oh, I can lift this, I can take the stairs, I can walk a little further. Once it wears off, it hits you, I had major surgery 6 days ago...


I've never liked being idle. So how do I manage to take it easy and not be bored?
