Yesterday, I finally got my uterine ablation and my laparoscopic surgery done. Since I’m fighting chronic anemia and developed some blood clots in my portal and splenic veins, I had to fix the heavy bleeding during menstruation. The Pill and the IUD was not an option. Therefore my OBGYN and I rooted for the uterine ablation. But the ablation alone is not a 100% contraception to prevent me from getting pregnant. We also decided that I get my fallopian tubes removed while I’m in anesthesia. Said, done! I was in the hospital as a day-patient. The surgery started around 1 pm. And at 7:45 pm I was released from the hospital. Unfortunately I had a little bit a harder time with the nausea from the anesthesia, the doctor’s and nurses wanted to keep an eye on me. I warned them before, I might get very nauseated. They fixed it with me breathing alcohol strips and an IV, which prevented me from throwing up. And by the time they wheeled me out, I was doing perfectly fine again. I didn’t even feel it, when Kevin gave me a ride back home.
Today, I’m taking two Tylenol every six hours. I feel a pinch here and there. But overall, I’m doing much better than I anticipated. Every time after I used the bathroom, I walk around in the house for little bit. The blood needs to keep flowing throughout my body. But I also get exhausted very easily. I’m so glad, the surgery went well and is over. There was a lot on my mind, the last few weeks. Now, I can rest my mind and heal from the procedure. Since I’m getting bored very easy, I use the opportunity to work back to back on my blogs. I couldn’t get out much, the last couple of months. So, I’ll post photos from previous Summers and early Autumns. I’m glad, I’m back! 😉
