Home for the holiday

I got home yesterday from the castle. I ended up staying in the castle for 2 1/2 days. Here is my story:
My mom and I drove to the castle at 6:30 a.m. . My husband was still in bed because he was recovering from hernia surgery that he had 3 days before,that he was having complications with. (I Almost cancelled my surgery) I was scared to death.
I just knew everything was going to go wrong. I met with the A-man. I told him that I was scared and he made the comment than do you want to cancel? Didn't make me feel to confident. I told him I didntdo well under general. I asked him if he could give me anything for the nasuea. He told me sure but it probally wont work for me. They did give me a cocktail that made me relax though. Next thing I knew I was being taken to OR .
The A-man said that he had discussed with my dr and decided it would be best to do an epideral. At that point I said sure. I just said I don't want to remember it. The next thing I woke up in recovery talking to my mom and sitting up. Feeling GREAT! They set up a morphine pump for pain and they showed me how to use it . (I did) And immediatly started throwing up. I told them that I think I am allergic to it and they said no, probally the sleeping medine coming out of my body. So, everytime I I would be in so much pain that I had to push the pump and then I would again. I ended up so out of it. They called in dr. my blood pressure had dropped dangerously low. They had to put my on an oxegyn and a special moniter. Scared me to death. The next day I refused any pain meds ecxept tylenol and I improved. The IV infatrated into my arm they had to remove it. I am black and blue. I forgot to say also that I went in getting a TVH with A & P repair and bladder sling. came out with TVH BSO with A&P repair and bladder sling. When he told that the overies had to come out. (I left it up to him if they looked bad) I thought I would be instant hot flashes, mood swings ect. I actually feel wonderful in that area. He gave me the patch, but I don't know if I want to use it. The best thing I got to come home from the castle in time for Thanksgiving with mild pain. I actually feel pretty good. My husband is feeling better too. I am glad that I went through with it and I would do the epideral again any day. Lots better than general and I don't remember a thing.
Thanks to all the sisters!! Your posts have all been helpful and kind. I love this site!!!!!
