I had a surgery today. Nothing too invasive, they went in to look and see if I had endometriosis. Turns out it was just some scar tissue.
I’ve had procedures done before, but I’ve always been awake and alert. This was my first time getting knocked out.
I really didn’t get too nervous. I knew it wouldn’t help anything. If I felt any nerves, it was after being rolled in and laying the OR. Kind of cold and creepy in there. But the doctor’s were great so I didn’t feel too bad.
I didn’t even fully realize the drugs to knock me out kicked in, and the only thing I remember was telling them I felt tired….then I woke up! Just like everybody said. (You all were right!)
I was so groggy waking up, as to be expected. I wasn’t feeling good, it wasn’t pleasant. You have this scratchy feeling in your throat, there’s some nausea and because of what I had done–some reeeeally serious abdominal pain.
Within 45 minutes though the meds kicked in, my blood pressure got back to normal and I felt okay to leave. And that was that. I thought it would be slow….but that was the quickest five hours ever.
Now I’m in bed. That’s where I’ll hang out for the next few days. Glad it’s all done and over with!
