Back to the Castle for Sarah

Hi Everyone!

Thanks so much for all the kind words and encouragement with these post-op complications. I did end up being admitted to the hospital Thursday evening and having surgery Friday morning to cleanup the blood that was in my pelvis.

Thursday evening I started feeling quite bad... my bladder felt like it was really full and painful so I thought the catheter was not working... The on-call doctor had me come down to the hospital and she checked my bladder and catheter and they were fine. The problem seemed to be that the blood that had been limited to my right side was now all around my bladder. I was given lots of demerol for the pain... it was really bad and really uncomfortable... especially the bladder pressure.

I was given a series of blood tests to see if I was actively bleeding. That was negative... whew! So Friday morning my regular Gyn came in and we decided that I should have another surgery to clean up the blood.

He did a lap with just a belly button incision and was able to clean everything out. In the photos it looks like my bladder is marinating in blood (YUCK!) and there was even blood up by my liver.

I felt much much better after the surgery. I am so glad that we decided to do it even though I wasn't actively bleeding. The pain was so bad and I was so uncomfrtable.

With the blood gone the GYn is hoping that my bladder problems will resolve quickly and the catheter will come out on MOnday.

Sorry I'm seeing this so late, but I was worried about you when you wrote last! I'm glad you were able to get such prompt treatment, and hope this is the beginning of the road to recovery (and, of course, a pain-free existence ) for you!

(Sorry it took so long to write; I've been out of commission with a NASTY case of bronchitis. But I've been thinking of you! ).
