Well i had my second procedure this year to excise the endo from my bowel. after a total of 8 hours in surgery i woke to a swollen and inflamed uvula i was choking on it and gagging in recovery no one would give me any water to drink to help. i was then taken to what can only be described as a make shift ward. with nurse who as i was hooked up to a PCA Offered me and icepop and ant sickness medication i advised her that i did not want any anti sickness medical as metroclopromide made me really anxious and i had and bad reaction to it, to which she offered me an alternative. all was fine despite the throat. so i woke a day later in a opiate haze and managed a bit of food but the throat was preventing me eating they kept removing my jug of water and at one point i was without it for 2 hours whilst struggling to breath and swallow. i complained about the throat on numerous occasions and it was suggested that i should ask my parents to bring strepsils in. after a bad reaction to morphine for which i needed anti histamine which it took 3 hours for them to et i was taken off the PCA The next day and the 6 hourly drug rounds began. i was given 2 codeine, 2 paracetamol and and anti sickness of course i assumed it had been noted to not give me the drug i had a bad reaction to so. 24 hours later i am suffering from migranes terrible fatigue low blood pressure and anxiety through the room. only when they are discharging me the next day that i seen they were giving me the metrocope that i had told them not to and they had in fact been giving me it for 2 days hence the bad side effects. also the nurse came to give me a fragmin injection and was called away the next day at 3pm the injection was still next to my bed waiting
after all this my gynae tells me surgery was unsuccessful and theres nothing more they can do for me on a surgical front and it will be hormone injections until i want a baby (ivf) or hysterctomy
pretty shit week!!!!! home now and finally feeling nursed back to health by family!!!
