I initially thought I was going to have local today due to having an ICD. Got to the admissions and I was lucky to be asked for a GA so of course I took it because my anxiety was through the roof! So anyway after waking up I had no pain what so ever which was a relief. Felt groggy from the drugs but went home as soon as I had felt better. What confused me was that the discharging nurse advised me that I had dissolving stitches. I didn't think anything of it until I came home. Slight period cramp at the moment now so probs the drugs wearing off lol. What I'm wondering is I have come up with 2 conclusions. 1, the cells were deeper than she expected so went in deeper. 2, the anaesthetic I was given had no adrenaline in because of my heart and the adrenaline helps clot blood so without it it cause more bleeding so had to stitch up.
Any1 have any idea? I will find out when I can but was just hoping some1 else had similar experience?
