Trip to the castle was entertaining

2 ovaries the size of baseballs with "old" endo + cysts, and they were adhering to each other as well as uterus. Dr believes previous laps may have caused more damage than they repaired.

The worst part wasn't the gas, it was 1. inability to breathe due to morphine and 2. it was getting out of bed for the first time at 3:30am and being made to sit in a chair for 3 hours sans tummy pillow. Did not get any attention from yon nurses that were avoiding our side of the hall because of a doofy guy named Al. Hubby had to get big and buff with people to keep me from dying due to the morphine, so GLAD he was there!!!! Horror story to come soon!

Meanwhile, the pillow police have a warrant out for my arrest, so I need to skeedaddle

Love and s to all!!

Welcome home. We're so glad everything was entertaining. You have such a good attitude!

Please get plenty of rest, drink lots and walk a little. And when you are feeling up to it, tell us all about your stay. It sounds like a story worth retelling.

So glad you are home! Sorry the castle trip wasn't a pleasant one (as pleasant as one can be). Good for your hubby for becoming "big and buff", and demanding care. I am appalled that the nurses can get away with that. Hopefully, you will better soon since you are at home in your own bed. Take care!

I was in St Joseph's..

My horror story is mostly mine, and everyone is different. I had bad drug reactions that were totally unexpected as I hadn't reacted that way when on them previously. My stay definitely taught me the value of a tummy pillow (get yours in the HS Store!!), and a good water bottle (BIG!!).

Doctors seem to like those treats quite a bit as well as the nurses, after dh dragged them out, I was always looked after LOL

I'm doing much better now!
