Yesterday I had my surgery to remove the polyp. We had to be at the hospital at 6:15 am. We were in the waiting room for a little while before I went back to get changed and hooked up to IVs. I was there for a bit and met with a nurse, Dr. H, and the anesthesiologists. At about 7:20 I said goodbye to Matt and headed back to the OR. I was doing OK with everything until I got in there and had to lay down. I remember being given some meds to help me calm down and seeing Dr. H walk in. After that I am at a loss. I woke up in another room and in pain...maybe around 8:40. I was freezing cold and tearing up a little bit. The docs gave me some pain meds and I was in and out of it for a bit. I believe that I was in that post-op room for about an hour (according to Matt). Then he was able to join me in another room. We were there for about an hour and I got released at around 10:30. We got home at around noon. I slept and took it easy most of the day. I'm not allowed to workout for the next week and have to be careful about lifting heavy things. I feel better today but still crampy. I return to the office on April 28th for the post-op. I'm glad that this is over and we can move forward again with IVF soon enough.
