i feel weird

Chandra...if you ever had a c-section..the pain is exactly like that...and they do give you excellent meds<cause you won't be nursing>......if you get uncomfortable beyond mangement TELL YOUR NURSES..they will contact your doc and let him know...if your are susceptible to nausea..tell your anesthetist pre-op..and they will make sure your given something for that... everyones ability to handle pain is different..but trust me girl..if you can do through childbirth , natural or otherwise..this isn't much different..<i Did both..had c-section first with DD..and Natural..i MEAN natural <no druggies at all..happened to quick! with my son> so do not worrie overmuch about that..concentrate on getting well!..be at peace...hopes and prayers...

I feel weird...

I had 3 births....all totally natural, the first not by choice, the last two I chose not to even try to want meds. I am allergic to sooooo many. Bad thing, broke tailbone with last two...ugh....I can handle it if its not worse. But then again, labor at least gives you a treasure for the pain....~sighs~ I am getting better about the fear factor. I have been taking lessons in relaxation and visualization from a little cambodian woman. expanding inner peace, and all that jazz. Hopefully this will help too. Especially with the mental part. Well have to run for now...bedtime for me

A word about pain ...

About 14 years ago I had an appendectomy where they found that my appendix had fused to my right ovary and they could not do it the traditional way. I ended up with a bikini cut.

Now I have another bikini cut above the first one.

The first time they managed pain with shots of Demerol in the butt every 4 hours or so. I slept a LOT. I'd get very ouchy when it wore off and have to ask for some more. This past time I got the PCA with the morphine control button.

The first surgery I read my chart which said I woke up in the recovery room in pain. I don't have any memory of it however. This surgery I can say I was pretty comfortable waking up in the recovery room and after. Yeah, you know you've had something done, but I have had back spasms and menstrual cramps that were so bad I vomited before, and gall bladder attacks that kept me up all night in excruciating pain. I would rather have a hysterectomy any day than have those again.

I would say that I was sore, but not so sore I couldn't move myself into my own hospital bed without assistance from the nurses, or get up and walk on my own after they took the urinary catheter out. Yeah, it's uncomfortable, but nothing like that gall bladder and back stuff.

I think you are going to be OK.

Been 2 weeks today!

Well, today I am going for my 2 week post op check up. I too was soooooo scared of the surgery and what to expect afterwards. I just decided I had to leave it in the hands of my higher power. I felt a lot better once I turned it over to HIM. Now, let me tell you..I never even had stiches or a broken bone in my life. I consider myself a HUGE wimp when it comes to pain. I had surgery on Dec 1st...the next day I was hauling butt down the corrider with my IV. I was released on Wed (rt after lunch!). I too had the bikini cut. I had some definate pain, but truely nothing I couldnt handle. I had the morphine drip 1 day and went to percocet 2 every 4 hours. The pain is defin manageable and I feel GREAT!

I am 33 and have no children. I was not bothered by losing my plumbing, as I have always had problems with pain, cysts, annoreah, and possible cancer (NO CANCER! HOORAY!!!!).

Just be sure to take extra special care of yourself. My mom was here for 10 days after surgery, and I have been on my own since. I took advantage of the time she was here, because I knew I needed to be top notch for when she left. I defin do not want complications, and altough a little stir crazy, I would rather do it right the first time. I really do feel wonderful and expect great news from the Dr today..I will let you all know. Thanks for all your support and I hope this post helps a little.
