I just had a hysterectomy at 10am yesterday, its 3:51am today for me down. I was not expecting it to be as painful as it has been. My time in the recovery room was extra long because i apparently stppped breathing a couple times with the I.V. Pain meds. They have me on some oral med now. The gas pain has been the worst. I cried all day long yesterday. And i never show pain, or any emotion for that matter, in front of people. I.still have a urinary cath in but i took a very short walk. Its suppose to help get the gas out but when i stood up i.could feel everything push down onto the incision of where my cervix used to be. I had a high pain med thrushold so controling my meds have been a problem. I take vicoden.for my.back and even though i only take 1 1/2 in a 24 if i need it, they say its affecting my tolerance a little. I used to think i had a high pain tolerance and even though the nurses say im doing better than most patience, i still feel embarrased for all the crying ive done. I cant wait to get home where dh can take care of me. I miss him tonight.
Sorry this is so long and for the spelling, grammer and puncuation errors. Its been a long day and i cant wear my glasses with the oxygen tubes. Oh and i appologize if i fal asleep after posting this. I hope im just pulling a drunk dial, lol.
