Meanda's daVinci Robotic Hysterectomy Story

daVinci Robotic Hysterectomy
Age at Surgery 36
Location: Fargo North Dakota

I had to get mine done because i had cancer. So to be safe the surgeon said i should get everything removed. I was ok with this as i have never wanted children ( I love kids but after 20 years as a nanny... Im good )
I didn't get a second opinion because i knew this was going to have to happen anyway. I mean after 5 years of nonstop bleeding... You kinda want it to stop now lol.

I had to go to a specialist for my surgery so i had to stay overnight.
I was under general anesthesia. I remember kind of freaking out because i was by myself having a huge deal of a surgery so i crack jokes when im scared. I started telling a joke before my butt was knocked out cold. I woke up finishing the joke and saying i had to puke lol.
I can not have narcotics because they make me sick and they gave me morphine. I stopped taking that right after surgery because i kept getting sick. I just took motrin for pain and honestly i was fine.
I was surprised by how little i hurt after that.
My surgery was done at 10pm i was up and walking my 1am. I had toast and cranberry juice at 2am. I slept till 5 am. Now i had trouble passing gas. They were going to hold me till i let it go and lord i tried lmao.
The poor nurse who came to draw my blood got fart blasted as she was taking my blood. I just looked at her and said im so sorry but this needs to happen and ripped it.
Now i have to mention as i didn't know it till someone told me. If you are a marijuana user. Tell your anesthesiologists!
For some reason it takes more meds to keep us asleep then it does for non pot smokers. NOW before you judge me listen.
I had nonstop bleeding and pain for 5 years. Pills make me sick. Pot helpped me live my life. Im not ashamed. I could go for a walk and not be in pain. I could sit on a chair and not have to sit on a donut thing. My bottom was fudged up hardcore!

My doctor said i had to wait 3 weeks before going back to work. I went back after a week because im poor and also my job is awesome and i only have to sit there checking people into the hotel.
I had my 3 week check up and i had to wait another 6 weeks before i could lift anything or have sex. It has been 2 months and i still cant lift to much but its getting better.
The only cpmplaint i have is the hot flashes. I can not take estrogen because that and sugar are what cancer cells feed off of... So im stuck i think lol

Beside the after effects like hot flashes im so much better. Im not so tired all the time. Im more social. I go out and do things now. I'll deal with the hot flashes so i can have more energy and swimming and soon... Sex.. Been 5 years its about time lmao.

Are you emotionally ready for it. I never wanted kids but it is still a mind **** knowing im not able to now. Like someone took my ability to decide away.. Even though i already decided... I know it sounds screwy but its true.
