Ohhh, the cramps! It’s like the worst menstrual cramps ever, times 2. They were bad enough to take my breath away a little bit earlier….Added to a back ache, a head ache, nausea…. oh yeah. Fun times.
I’m nervous about the d&c tomorrow. But not specifically about the d&c – just about surgery in general and anesthesia. You know, I’ll just feel better once it’s over and I wake up ok…. I remember when I had my gallbladder out a few years ago – I wasn’t scared of the surgery itself, I was scared of not coming out of it. And you know, having a kid and all makes me much more paranoid about that.
I have read that if you are in a lot of pain before hand, you will likely feel better once the procedure is over. I hope that holds true for me. If not, I have some demerol I can take after the surgery – and I know that will help.
Here’s to a safe procedure and recovery.
