went in to hospital at 7.30 am, was all gowned up and prepared for op immediately, fibroid embolization. Got taken for op at 8.45am, op took around two hours in total under local anaesthetic, felt like ten mins!!! It's a bit surreal, you feel them and hear them but your zoned out too! On my return to the ward I was Put on a morphine pump for first 18 hrs, took an itchy reaction and nausea with it so they changed me onto slow release oxycodone taken every 12 hrs alongside paracetamol and ibrufen with oxycodone fast release to break through extreme pain, got out 31st November at 5pm.
Wanted to sleep all the time in hospital but couldn't because I was sore and tender, bit like extreme period pain! The medication does work but the unfortunate side effect is extreme constipation which is agonising!! Got suppositories today,2nd December and thankfully they are working! This operation is not a walk in the park by any means!! I'm due back to work on the 12th of December, I will keep you updated on my progress.
