When I woke up I wasn’t sure where I was. I was struggling to come fully awake when I noticed my husband coming into the room. I was drowsy but managed to smile and say something to him. He took my hand and asked how I felt. I told him my belly hurt.
We sat that way for about 5 minutes. Then a nurse came in to check on me. She told me everything had gone well and the doctor would be in shortly to speak to us. I just nodded as I wasn’t feeling very well. She told me that they would let me rest for a little while and then have me try to eat and drink something. She also brought in a heating pad for my stomach. It helped a lot.
Several minutes later the doctor entered. He told me that they had removed several polyps. He showed me the before and after photos. I bet there were at least 15 polyps in my uterus. No wonder I couldn’t have anything implant in there! The after picture showed a clear uterus. I thanked him for his work and he walked out.
After another 10 minutes or so the nurse came back in with gingerale and crackers. She told me I needed to eat and drink some before I tried walking. I sipped on the gingerale and ate a few crackers. She asked if I was ready to walk. I nodded and she helped me out of bed.
When I got up I noticed a large spot of blood on my hospital bed. The nurse explained that was normal and I’d probably have some bleeding the next few days. I then shuffled over to the bathroom and back to the bed. The nurse deemed me ready to go.
I got back to the bed and sat down. I wasn’t sure I could dress myself. My husband helped me into my clothes and I sat on the bed waiting to sign my papers. The nurse came back with a bag she handed to my husband. It contained more crackers, my pain medication, and several more 1 hour heating pads.
I thanked her for everything and stood up. My husband had to help me shuffle to the car. I was in a lot of pain but I was able to move. I got into the car and we headed home.
