Anyone had 'Crystalloid' administered during their OP?

I received my operative reports from the GYN/URO/hospital concerning my recent botched bladder surgery and enterocele repair. The report said I was given 1600 cc of crystalloid. I'm trying to research this on the internet but it appears its some kind of chemical and haven't been able to get much more info.

Anyone out there receive this during their operation?

Most likely we all did... crystalloid is a type of solution used to hydrate patients during surgery and when they're being treated for burns or other trauma. Lactated Ringer's is an example of a crystalloid solution you may have heard of. Here's a link to an explanation of what might be in it:

And here's a link in which they mention it being used to try to reduce adhesion formation:

I'm so sorry to hear your surgery went badly. The crystalloid solution, though, most likely wasn't part of the problem.
