d & c was this morning, at 7 am.
i'm glad it's over.
last night i had a really good cry. well, it wasn't good....it was really bad. but, i think i got it out. i sat in the shower and cried. i cried for so long i had to get out because there was no more hot water. dh was concerned. but i needed it. and i'm glad i cried yesterday, and not today while i was in the surgical center.
everything went smooth.
dr. d was so nice today. they wheeled me into the O.R. very awake. he held my hand and talked to me until i fell asleep. it was really nice. the other people in the surgical center were very nice as well.
when i woke up i was in a lot of pain, and was instantly in tears. the nurse asked if i wanted a narcotic... i said yes. she gave me the rhogam shot (i am rh-) and fentanil (for pain). i was back asleep for a little bit. i woke up again and asked for dh. she got me out of the recovery area and into a post op area where dh was waiting for me :D
in post op the cramps were terrible. i just wanted to go home. dh asked when i could leave. they said i had to finish my i.v.
they had put pitocin in my i.v. which has caused me terrible cramps all day. i guess they gave me pitocin to shrink my uterus back to normal size, but having contractions all day has not been pleasant.
thank god for percocet.
we had some of the tissue that was removed today sent to a lab. it will be tested for chromosomal abnormalities. we should get the results next week at our post-op with dr. d.
thanks so much to everyone for your kind thoughts over the last few days. it has really helped. you all have a special place in my heart..... i am so grateful i have the support of people who understand what it's like.
