Surgery Went Well



I had my surgery yesterday, and all is well.  I had to be at the hospital at 5:45am, for a 7:45am operating time.  Trust me...when the alarm went off at 4:45am, I was NOT a happy camper.  G-man and the kids drove me to the hospital, and then went home to continue their morning.  The kids didn't know about the surgery....just that I had a doctor's appointment. 

My 2 hours of pre-op time went quickly, between all the people coming and going.  I was wheeled into the OR at 7:44am, and my doctor called G-man around 9am to say it was all over and I was in recovery.  Easy peasy.

They were able to remove the mass without removing the entire ovary (although I would have been fine if they took the ovary....).  They went in laproscopically, and used the same incision spots as my previous surgeries, so no new scars.

I was home by noon, and spent the rest of the day in bed.  I drifted in and out of sleep (thank you pain medication!).  The big question was....would I be able to pee!!!  I have this problem after surgery, and have ended up in the emergency room twice.  I was nearing the time to call the doctor if I hadn't gone yet....when SUCCESS!   That was a huge anxiety lifter for me.  I really didn't want to go to the ER.

I attempted to have a few text conversations with my peeps....but it was obvious that my pain meds were winning when I was texting the conversation meant for another person.  So I gave up on that idea.

I was out for the night around 9pm.

Today I am out of bed and moving around.  Took a shower.  I have a meeting at 10am (at my house), so I am all set for that, and will return to work tomorrow.  Of course, I made the mistake of checking my work e-mail......UGH.  I worked about double my normal hours on Monday and Tuesday to compensate for missing yesterday and today.  And no doubt that tomorrow will be a long day as well. 

Anyway....hoping to see what you all are up to later!!!

  4. Keep taking those happy pills! And keep peeing! I'm glad the surgery went as planned, though why you want to go back to work that fast I don't know (says the woman who took exactly four weeks off work for a quadruple by-pass!)
