Thank you all

Well, I'm home from the castle. I felt your hugs and best wishes the whole time. Thank you all.

The surgery was a slam dunk, the nurses said I hardly used the morphine at all, so was taken off it early (I have a very high pain tolerance), they loved the goodies basket..... Anyway, it was very uneventful with no surprises because of the great prep I received from HysterSysters.

I got home Thursday and am doing as instructed: ,
, and - That was one, wasn't it??

My DR did two things which I hadn't seen in any threads. He used "subcutaneous" stitches. No staples or visible stitches. Pretty cool. He also gave me several halprin (sp?) shots - one right before surgery and a couple in the days afterward. In addition to TEDs, it cuts back on blood clots. Maybe these two should be added to pre-op questions.

I only remember one drugged statement. In the recovery room, I vaguely heard them ask if I was in pain, were the meds working. I answered "I prefer a glass of champaigne."

As you know, during prep for surgery about 15 people in ones and two come in the room say who they are and do their thing really fast. They all ignored my poor DH sitting in the corner. I made everyone stop and made a *formal* introduction to my husband - you know the kind where you have to turn and acknowledge the person and shake hands. It slowed things down, made them more humane and made my DH laugh. Gotta control what you can. Only my Gyn/Onc acknowleded my DH without prodding. Earned brownie points with me.

That's about it. Very boring. I'll let you all know how the path tests turn out. As we in CC know, the surgery is the least scariest thing.

Ellen, stay out of the ER - you need your rest.

Thanks everyone.

Happy You're Home

Now let's hope for good news from the pathology reports. I wonder if the shots you had were heparin? Heparin will help thin the blood to prevent clots. Take it easy, act like a Princess, and keep us updated on the pathology reports.
