My operation

Posted , 8 users are following.

hi everyone

i thought I would pop on just to let you all know how things went.  I went in last Thursday by. 730am and was told that I was second on the list however when my consultant came to see me she advised that I would be first on the list and would be taken down at 9am.  The wait therefore wasn't too bad and by the time I had my obs done spoke to the consultant and anethasist and got changed they were coming to walk me down to theatre.  

I can remember waking up in recovery and looking at the clock it was 1230.  I quickly dozed back off.  I can't remember much of Thursday as I made use of the morohisne drip they gave me.

friday was really the same story I slept a lot.  The consultant came to see me and told me that the operation had gone very well and that she was shock d at th size of my fibroid which was the size of a water melon and weighed over 4lb hence all the pain I had been in.  She advised that along with my heroes and cervix my ovaries and tubes were also removed and prescribed the HRT patch which I have to change twice a week.  She explained that this would be for 6 years until I reach the age of 51. The biopsy results I will have to wait for but fingers crossed.  I had dissolvable stitches and its a very neat cut I must say I'm well impressed.

i came home yesterday evening and was totally exhausted.  I'm aching and tired but I must say that the pain isn't half as bad as I expected.  Ian still off my food a bit but I'm drinking plenty.  I've come home with tramadol as well as paracetamol and ibuprofen which I feel at the ,omens I can't go without, but I homstly feel so glad I had it done.

love

    I just want to wish you well with your recovery. Can I just ask how many cm was your fibroid and they talk in pregnancy weeks aswell so do you do how many weeks yours was in size?

    Hi Shelley

    So glad you are back home safe and sound😊Take things easy smd accept every offer of help you get. I am now 3 weeks post op and every Monday my friends husband makes something for my husband and I to have on Tuesday for dinner. This means I get to see my friend Pam on Tuesday as she delivers it for us and I get to spend more time with hubby after work on Tuesday as dinner is in the oven and he gets a night off from cooking too

    Support from great family and friends is invaluable at this time.Take care and rest yourself Sharon x
