I'm so glad your procedure went well and you are doing OK. You are right the worst part was the waiting. Sending you ((( HUGS! )))
My procedure went really well also. I actually woke up this morning with really severe cramps and was like omg, is this happening? Am I having a miscarriage? But I had hardly any spotting. After a few hours the cramping stopped.
The worst part of the whole thing was getting my blood drawn and the IV put in. I have really shallow veins and am terrified of needles. The last time I was put under I was like 16 to get my wisdom teeth out so the whole thing scared me.
My nurses were fantastic. They got 3 nurses around me to make sure they got the right vein on the first try then covered it up with a blanket so I didn't have to look at it. Even though I was crying the whole time they said not to worry its perfectly normal and its OK to be scared.
My doctor was so wonderful and compassionate. He came over and took my hand and said its a horrible thing, and that I could cry all I wanted and that he was going to take great care of me. He said he hates having to do these surgeries, but it is very common and that I would be in and out as quick as possible. He said there is absolutely nothing I did that would cause this to happen.
He told me my surgery had to get pushed back a bit because a woman came in that was bleeding heavily and wanted to make sure she was taken care of first (I actually think she was having a miscarriage, but not sure).
I was then taken back to the surgery room which was very scary and then the anesthetist told me he was first going to give me some drugs to make me that "felt like I had a few cocktails" and he had me move over to the surgery bed. The nurse introduced herself and she said I'm just going to put this strap around you in case I decided to roll around in my sleep. That was the last thing I remember before waking up in recovery when a nurse asked me how I was doing.
When I woke up I felt like I had the best sleep of my life. I apparently woke up quickly because I skipped a section where they put people coming out of anesthesia and right into recovery. I think I was up and walking around in 40 minutes. I don't have any cramping or pain. Not taking any medication. Just a little light spotting. I actually don't feel emotional at all and feel guilty about it. I think just having this closure is just what I needed.
Although it was very scary, the entire procedure was painless and the right option for me.
Again, glad you are doing Ok, keep us posted.
