While laying in recovery that question came into my mind. I can’t say I thought a long time about it but long enough for in to be weird. In the end I just felt bad for the salmon. And then I told my husband that my surgeon was hot. Which he is. But I don’t usually tell my husband that other men are good looking because I think my very own husband is still one of the most handsome men ever. I think it is kinda mean to tell your spouse that someone is good looking. If my husband told me that women were good looking I would feel a little hurt. But it is also a little unkind when that said person just spent 3 hours with your vagina.
And this was funny too. The nurse that was looking after me said that if I wanted I could give myself the pain suppository. I thought that it sounded like a good idea. But when I was doing it I lost it! It wasn’t like it could really go anywhere, I had blankets on me. The nurse and I looked and looked. I even got out of the bed but it was nowhere to be found. It turns out I didn’t lose it at all because it was up in the intended target. How, I do not know. I guess I am just really good at giving suppositories and now I have a story for whenever I give a suppository to a patient. I also lost my glasses but they were not in the same place as the suppository. They were on the floor.
The only think that went wrong is my actual surgery time. The hospital kept calling me and changing it so I ended up going way to early and was waiting for 5 hours. I didn’t get called out of the waiting room until just after 1:30. It wasn’t too bad because clever me smuggled in my MP3 player. It fits nicely into my glasses case.
It is amazing to me just how good I actually feel and how smoothly everything went. When my mom had her hysterectomy she was in the hospital close to a week and her recovery time took months. In the old days they cut you from stem to stern. I have two tiny incisions on my abdomen and one in my belly button. The rest was done through the vagina. (Is that too much information?) Though I have read articles that women that have a hysterectomy this way still need to take it slow because she doesn’t actually see the incision but it is there.
And one last thing. After the surgery they put these very poofy cuffs on your legs that inflate and deflate going up your legs. They are heated and very comforting. I want some!
