I'm Alive! :-)

February 28th, 2010 at 06:19 pm

Mr. Roboto did his job. They were able to leave me with one ovary and that is all I need. Didn't have too many issues with the incisions yet, most problems I had were from hanging UPSIDE DOWN!! Yes indeed, when the robot operates on you, they put you on the table and then move it vertically so you are head down to the floor. This is supposed to help with bleeding, etc. In this case, what bleeding I did have moves into the rib cage and clots up and until the body absorbs it. What it did to me was make my muscle spasm in excruitatingly painful charley horses right in my right rib cage. Every time I would move a muscle on my right side, the spasm would start. I would have to say it was definately MORE painful than contractions! Wow! I scared the pee out of those poor nurses! I was rather vocal in my painful displeasure. Anyway, everything is better now! Smile Just working on regular recovery!

    I'm so glad you are recovering. I had a supracervical hystorectomy almost three years ago. Luckily mine was done laproscopically. I was able do return to work in time for the beginning of the new school year. Technology is grand.

    Wow! I get charley horses in my calves and my feet sometimes and they *hurt*! I can't imagine getting them in my chest area/muscles! Ouch!

    I'm glad you're doing well though!
