That's me checked into hospital yesterday, staff all seem nice and hospital pleasant. I have a comfy bed that has a foot and head raise mechanism so it is very comfy for my poor back 😊 I'm in a four bedded room with two other general surgical cases and one lady who had hysterectomy yesterday.
I saw a doctor yesterday who explained the procedure for the Bartholin cyst drainage that was causing me some concern, I will need a full pubic shave and most likely have a couple of internal stitches as well as abdominal ones from hysterectomy.
I spoke to the anaesthetist yesterday and told of my previous unpleasant after effects from morphine so he is going to give me oxycodone and also a suppository for post operative pain relief 😊
I'm on the afternoon list so I've just had tea and toast at 7am plus 4 prunes as advised with two glasses of water 😊 I didn't get much sleep due to all the bustle and machines beeping but feel ok, I'm going for a shower later and plan to do some walking up and down the ward to get my bowels moving if possible (sorry if that TMI!!) then it'll be time for pre-med and I'll put some relaxing music on to help ease my anxiety 😊
I will update this post regularly over the next few weeks in the hope it helps others wanting detailed information 😊
Wish me luck! The next 6 hours feels like 6 years right now!! Lol 😊
