quick surgery update

I just took a Percocet. So, things took a little longer than expected in the OR. It turns out I did have a septum, not BU. The RE told DH he "got it"!!!! I'll have my post-op in about 2 weeks and we think another sonohystogram in 5 weeks to see how it looks. DH said the RE also found multiple polyps and was able to get some but not all (D/T could only put so much fluid in me, said DH) and wants to do another procedure, sounds like maybe just the hysteroscopy to get the rest of them. That has me a bit worried. DH wasn't too sure, so I'll see what the RE says at the post-op appointment. The RE said everything else looked good.

Oh, pain wise--- my biggest ouch is from the gas. When I first woke up it wasn't bad. I started to feel it when I arrived home. It's been in my shoulders and around the ribcage, which really hurts. I also threw up after getting home. Yumm, strawberry jello on the floor, poor DH. My nurse SIL came by today and removed my band-aids. She said the incisions looked good. I was able to go to the bathroom without any help today. My dad said, "Wow, you're a big girl!" Ha, ha. I'm moving around a little better and will try to sleep in my own bed tonight.

Ok, I'm starting to feel the Percocet. Think I better sleep.

Lydia, I am so happy that all went well (for the most part) and that you are back at home snug as a bug in your own bed. For me sometimes there is no place better. I hope your recovery is quick and be sure to KUP on how you're doing!

Im sorry youre in a lot of pain, especially gas pains - that is just soooo uncomfortable, and it must make everything else feel extra miserable. LOL at going to the bathroom on your own. I hope that you can get plenty of rest this week, so that your body can start to recover. Let us know how you're doing in the next few days.

Has DH been treating you well? :) Poor guy, having to clean up the red jello... but hey, Ive had to do it for my dH!

It sounds like they have a good follow-up plan for you; I really really hope this works!!!

LOL, I know...I was totally laughing at DH (in my mind) cleaning up the jello. He was so sweet about it. I had a really tough time getting and staying comfortable for sleeping the first night. I had to sit up in a weird way. I can't explain it. DH saw that I was having a rough time so he actually got behind me and propped me up, holding me the rest of the night. I totally love that man.

I'm feeling better today. I stopped one pain med yesterday and hope to stop the other one today. I'm going to take a nap in a bit but plan on walking around outside today. I promise I won't overdo it. DH wants to go out to eat tonight and I really want to feel up to it.
