Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

I didn’t sleep at all first night, watched Amazon movies 🤣 They ghost the pain nurse to see me and I had I think 10ml every couple of hours for four doses. If you aren’t getting enough relief do ask them for more.

Hope you get some sleep today. 🙂

Second night I didn’t wake until around 10am, dr said he’d been twice and still asleep.

Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Maybe drop something and ask for help getting it and check on pain relief 😂 might work.Have you had any lunch

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Just had some and catheter has come out 🥳 tried a bit of panini but not very hungry if I’m being honest, did you have much appetite? Going to try and get some sleep now x

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

I wasn’t either, wouldn’t worry 🙂Enjoy your sleep 🙂

Got curry for tea don’t know how that will go down 🤣 sleep was short but sweet very noisy today, how are you moon? X

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

Unless korma you can keep that one😂, saying that Ive had my meal for the day, but likely pick later depending on how things go.Is it a big ward? Mine was a long room, probably about 12-15 beds. The hospital is quite old, they are currently building a new one.

Has it quietened down a bit now?

Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

It was chicken tikka masala only ate a bit but was nice ☺️ yeh quite big all private rooms very nice all been done up, pain seems to be on and off morphine is great when I get it just so tired but can’t sleep much as feel bloated due to gas and pain 🙈🙁

Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

Maybe they’ll have something to help you sleep. Rest is so needed, it’s still hard to comprehend what they’ve done. Have you seen the consultant?

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Will ask them for if I can have something I’m that tired though 🤣 yes he’s seen me twice today all good no complaints and he will see me tomorrow.

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

You’re lucky, it’s amazing the difference Has he said much about endo?

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Just shows the difference doesn’t it and yeh he said I was riddled with it but all gone now he said my uterus was big and bulky from the adenomyosis so sent off to be tested as he thinks this was causing me 90% of my pain x

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

Good news he’s got rid of it 🙂How are you feeling today, did you sleep well?

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Yes he was happy about it too ☺️ on and off better than the night before slept from 12-3 ish then had morphine then back to sleep till half 6 when they woke me up, just got changed into pjs and back in fresh bed knackered already 🤣 did you feel like this moon? Xx

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

That’s great he’s happy with the way it went 😀👍The first time I went for a walk up and down the garden was about five days. Day after couldn’t move much at all, second day felt better for sleep and more myself, I realised I hadn’t even brushed my hair 😂

You’re doing well to be messaging, let alone much else.

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

🤣 it’s all been a blur I’ve done a flight of stairs this morning physio was impressed now I’m in bed again sore and tired but grumpy 🤣 asked them all to leave me for a bit, bet they think I’m being stroppy but I just need 5 mins to my self, waiting for dr to come see me in a bit all being well there sending me home later.

How are you now moon sorry forgot to ask? X

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

You’ve done well 😀, now you’ve said that I did go for a walk down the ward with a nurse, can’t remember if first or second day.I don’t think they’ll think that, they’ll have seen much worse 🙂

Don’t apologise, I’m

Ok

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Well Dr has been and said he’s happy for me to go home this afternoon ☺️ it’s snowing here quite heavily so be home sooner rather than later, glad your alright also, suffering with pain and bloating today all the gas they pump into you isn’t it x

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

That’s great news, you’d be pretty comfy if you got snowed in though 😂I don’t know why they don’t have a mini vac to take it out again 🤷‍♀️😂

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Wouldn’t be the worst place to get stuck 🤣 doesn’t feel like a hospital, I know my stomach is 3x bigger than it normally is feeling large today 🤣

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

Wonder if it’s happened that patients couldn’t get home 😂I think the swelling is standard side effect, unfortunately.

Likely rest easier at home 🙂

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

I’m home ☺️☺️ I bet it’s happened before I asked the nurse what happens if they get stuck and they could stay on the day ward as free at night x

Moon_maiden
Moon_maiden in reply to Lou93

Bet your glad to be home 😀Wouldn’t have been as comfy then. 🤣

Lou93
Lou93 in reply to Moon_maiden

Set glad to be home my bed is calling me 🤣

Hope you feel better soon ♥️

Thank you ❤️ hope your feeling a bit better also xx

Hi not been too well, I am going to ask to be referred so I can get a hysterectomy. Did you get the option to keep your ovaries in? So pleased for you, I bet it’s a relief xx

Hi yes we spoke the other day and you weren’t to good then, yes he asked me but said I would probably have to have them out few years later anyway as they can cause pain so had everything out ☺️ feeling so relieved ❤️ you think you want to keep your ovaries? Xx

Yes I remember 💗how you feeling this afternoon? You know the only reason I want to keep ovaries is because of the menopause.

I had 2 consultants say they would take the whole lot out and 1 who said she would leave my ovaries in if I wanted.

Will you go straight into menopause? X

☺️ just in pain at the moment waiting on morphine so will have a sleep when I’ve got that 🤞 yeh I think it’s your choice I’ve been on zoladex so been in medical menopause for 6 months already on hrt.

How old are you? I’m 27 x

I am 39, gosh you are going to be going through this. I hope you get a good sleep later, let me know how you are 💗

Hopefully it will be worth it 🤞 will do speak later on ❤️

Absolutely brilliant to hear 😊

Get well soon and yes plenty rest x

Lou93 in reply to Kris_23
