Hello to all,
firstly a huge thank you to everyone for their messages- I really appreciate you taking the time out to message to find out how I am, was very kind of you and made me smile when in hospital past few days.
it has taken me a few days to come on here as just have not been able to focus, so so tired.
Had the op on Tuesday at 10am after a mix up of when I was actually going down-was spouse to be last then it turns out I should have been ready for 8am. I cannot fault the staff, everyone was so good and supportive. Whilst waiting to go in, the team around me administering the drugs and waiting to push me through the doors to theatre were lovely and entertaining!!
the op lasted 3 1/2 hours and then I was in recovery for an hour before being wheeled back, drugged to high heaven! I had had morphone in the spine so was a slurring mess lol!!! The doc wanted me out the next day (yes, really- I had onLy been out of theatre a few hours when he said this) but the next day I had a funny turn and ended up passing out when getting out of bed so was put back to bed for the rest of the day with 2 more bags of IV solution as they couldn't get to blood pressure to go above 63/52... Very light headed and sickly feeling.
so Friday I got myself all ready and just had to wait to be discharged, which was 2pm. Then a 2 hour drive home with a huge bag do medicines!! Not the comfiest journey but good to be home.
this morning I went to local hospital for catheda to be taken out (I actually became attached to it, no need to go to the loo! Great stuff!!) thinking I was gonna be there an hour but it was 4hrs as had to have 3 bigs wees with scans in between to show if I was emptying my bladder... I hadn't got my medication and got very sicky feeling and sad as fed up. But eventually got sent home and i do keep weeing although I do now feel like I have had a real good kicking in the pelvic area... Very uncomfortable although cannot say bad pain.
so here I am, waiting to go back on Tuesday to get results. So hope don't need any more treatment, dr did say lymph nodes didn't show any obvious signs of tumour so fingers crossed. But what will be will be. I'm pleased the op is over. I could bore you with all the little details but will leave for anyone to ask anything more they want to know.
waffle waffle. Thank u again to all
ps the green socks are something else... As are the little daily injections-ouch!
