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.
