Hope this reaches all in good spirits.
I had my surgery this past Friday (Oct 15). When checking in I was fine, when I went to the pre-op room that is when I started to cry. I started to cry because I was nervous and the pain afterwards. When on the operating table they asked if I had any questions and I asked what time it was 11:38am. I woke up about 5pm. I had the da Vanici (spelling) surgery. Well they could not pull my uterus out of my vagina so they had to make a 5 inch incesion above my belly button to remove my uterus.
I was home Saturday by 5pm. I still am in pain but the meds help some but I don't want to take them till I have a bowel movement so I am taking a stool softner. Yesterday I actually ate something. Friday and Saturday all I could eat was maybe a apple sauce fruit cup, 2 chips and maybe jello through out the day.
Now that the surgery is all over, I have all new questions
- Will I still have to get a yearly pap?
I know these and other questions will be answered but if anyone has any insight on what I possibly should expect that would be great.
Again, I hope this message reached everyone in good spirits. I know I am considering everything.
