Near death rare occurance

Hi Tracy, I thought I would share this story with you to let you know that you are not alone. My sister had a TAH/BSO two years ago because of severe endometriosis. The surgery went fine. She stayed two days in the hospital and went home on the typical pain meds. I went and stayed with her the day before xmas eve to help with little ones while her DH went to work. She kept complaining of stomach ache and heartburn. I called her dr and asked if I could let her take Mylanta. He said fine. She had not ate in 3 days. Only a few sips of sprite!! Right before I started to go home, she vomited. It was dark. I didnt even think about it until the next morning which was almost too late. It was blood! The next day, Xmas eve, my father was there with her. She was going to the bathroom to have BM, she passed out and had BM on the floor, bright red blood!! My dad called an ambulance and my poor little nephews had to see there mommy leave in an ambulance on xmas eve. Anyways, her blood count was 2 when she arrived at the hospital. If she would have went to sleep that night, she would have died in her sleep!!! She had an ulcer and the pain meds irritated it and made it bleed!! They also found out she had a bleeding disorder like my children (hemophilia). This is all very rare and not a typical experience but she is alive and doing wonderful and ironically does not regret having the hysterectomy. Says its the best thing she has ever done. That is why I went ahead and had mine even after this horrible story!! Hang in there! Things will get better. Take time to heal and never hesitate to call your doctor when you are unsure!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS, Lori

I had a similar experience myself. I went in to the hospital on Dec. 8 th for the removal of my remaining left ovary. (had a TAH Feb.04) It was going to be simple procedure, overnight stay and go home the next day. Dr came in and said I could go, then came back after looking at the blood work and said my blood count was getting lower. It kept dropping evertime they took blood, by 3:00 I was having extreme pain, demoral and Morphine wasnt kicking it. by 5:30 they rushed me back in for ER surgery, I had to get 4 units of blood, plasma. It was horrible!!! Then I woke up in the ICU. After all that I had pluerl infusion(SP), they thought I had a blodd clot at one point, and I left with pneumonia. It was the scariest thing I have ever been through. I hope I never Have to have surgery again. But, I am on the road to recovery now. Feeling better everyday and thanking GOD everyday that I am here with my family..........

I would like to thank everyone who replied and who will reply. It means so much to know that people do understand. Your support is great. That's what I needed. I feel so much better emotionally. Physically, I'm getting there. The newsletter checkpoints was right on. It's also a comfort to know that someone else has experienced the excrusiating pain of filling up with blood. This is a pain like no other that can't be described. Thank you all for caring! And God bless you all on your recovery.
