Re: Worried about dignity during hysterectomy

For my preop sisters worried about dignity: I had my LAVH a year ago. I was just glad I was at home when i did that bowel prep- talk about undignified. When I arrived at the hospital, after I was all checked in, I was cozy. In the preop area, I met the anesth. He started the meds. When they said they were wheeling me into surgery, I was so high i could not care less.
The next thing I knew I was in my own room, hours later, sweet hubby at my side. Yes, someone had changed me into a different gown, and put those lovely mesh panties on me, but I was too high to care. Everyone treated me very professionally. These things are hard to think of, it's true, but focus on how the people who are caring for you are professionals. My CNA had to get me up to go to the bathroom the first time. I felt embarrassed by that- haven't needed help in the bathroom in decades.
Last summer I had my first colonoscopy. Talk about embarrassed!. Even with the drugs they give you, well, when it's over they want you to fart to release all the air they pumped into you.. Now that was a highlight of my life, let me tell you..
