One, I've got a naturally big mouth anyway. Two, I had already been given morphine for my pain. So the tech did the trans-vaginal ultrasound (have you ever had one? Boy, talk about someone 'invading your bubble'!) and I looked at her and said "Wow. You could have at least bought me a drink first!" Then I thought about it for a second, and we both about fell over laughing!

Next story: the morning after my hyst, the nurse took my cath out. I was having trouble peeing after my cath was removed, so finally my nurse suggested I run the water in the sink, and close my eyes and try to relax. So I sat on the toilet, she turned the water on for me, and I made myself as comfortable as possible and closed my eyes. Several minutes later, I had success. Whew. But when I opened my eyes, I discovered that apparently my sink drain was clogged. My bathroom was flooding! Lol. The vanity was covered in water, there was water in the trash can by the sink, the clean towels and gown the nurse had brought in for after my shower were all soaked, and there was a little waterfall going on, off the ledge of my vanity! Lol. I squished my way over to the sink (getting my socks soaked in the process), took my socks off and walked down the hall to the nurses desk to report the incident. Fortunately, they were able to get maintenance in pretty quickly to unclog the sink, then the nurses had to come clean up the mess!
Trans-vaginal ultrasound....oh, yes....I've had several. But you haven't truly had your bubble invaded until you've had an anal ultrasound!!!!! There isn't enough booze in the world that makes that okay. :-)

Thanks for the smile....I REALLY needed it today.

Ok, I am really laughing now because yes I have had the trans-vaginal ultrasound - or at least they tried.

Imagine what you went through with a that was so large that they couldn't tell the difference between the wall of the uterus and the (he was - as my describes him - the size of a small child's head). Add to that, I am a 42 year old VIRGIN (striclty by CHOICE) And you can just image, my male trying to make all this work and not kill me in the process.

He kept sighing and saying "wait, I think ... no. let me try ... no." I was and he was finding no humor in his situation. He wanted desparately to rule out a hysterectomy because he thought that there were less invasive alternatives. All I kept saying is - what could be less invasive then the current invasion that you have going.

My surgery is in a few weeks, but this story from my mom's surgery makes us roar with laughter.

When my mom was in the recovery room, she told the nurse that her vagina burned...then my mom broke into the chorus of Elvis' "Ring of Fire". She has no recollection of any of it...

and it burns, burns, burns...the ring of fire -- I'm laughing right now!

Apparently, when I came up from the theatre to my bed I sat up in bed and started walking up and down the bed with my legs and kept saying, "I'm walking, I'm walking" (as I heard the sooner you get walking the better it is for you). My husband was quite amused.

My recovery nurse told me one of the first things I said was "I want to go horseback riding". I haven't ridden a horse in years, & sure don't want to anytime soon. LOL

That woman just wouldn't SHUT UP!!

Just out of surgery and in pain and wanted to sleep to get through some of the pain. I had an 80 yr old woman as my roomie and she needed a babysitter because she kept getting out of bed and falling. Well, they talked for hours it seemd like and I couldn't fall asleep for them talking. I called the nurse and said "can you give her a sleeping pill and knock her out?" None oreded for her. "Then can you knock me out? Because if you don't one of us is getting hurt and it won't be me." I got moved to a new room. LOL Threaten harm to your roomie and they move you. What a concept.

How about being led to the bathroom to go tee tee and the nurse turns on the water in the sink, so it can sound like a fountain...to get me going.... the sink is in the other room, mind you. Anyway, I'm alone sitting on the potty, still nothing happening and then I hear what sounds like a water fall, to my surprise the sink is running over. I pull the Nurse Help chain, I push the cancel button, I pull the chain again...I do this little rendition, oh, 4 or 5 times TRYING to get someone's attention. I finally give up, get up and push the heavy IV stand and turn the water off myself. I then go back to my post, the potty, and wait. The nurse comes running in, and I yell for her to not run that water is in the floor and to not slip and fall!!!!
And I have to include this....when she first turned on the water, she sung the little jingle, "splish, splash, I was taking a bath" repituore and laughed before exiting my room. Anyway, I saved the day. She was thanking me over and over for turning the water off.

Maintenance came to check the clogged sink and it was reported that water had leaked into the room down below on the floor beneath my room.

Did I tee tee? I ohnestly can't remember.
