Yesterday I arrived at the hospital 5min early, which is truly a feat for me. But i guess i have to say thanks to my SIL E who brought me, b/c had it just been me i probably would have been 5min after. I was then checked in and asked to fill out a little bit of paper work which didn't take long at all. And the best part of all, i didn't have to pay anything at all upfront. (woo hoo for hubby's insurance, lol) I was then sent up for pre-op where i had a lovely outfit waiting for me. a light purple hospital gown, white cap and purple footies ( the socks were actually cute). then a little more paper work and my SIL was allowed to come up while i talked with the nurses and met the anesthesiologist and then waited for Dr.G. Once he came he explained what would happen and what he would do. Once he left i was given some medicine to help me relax and then wheeled toward the operating room, but then had to be wheeled back for a second b/c they were waiting on something and that is the last thing i remember. LoL. When i woke up i was back in the room i had been in earlier wondering when they were gonna take me back for the procedure,. finally my SIL and friend from church came back up and let me know that I was done. Talk about clueless. I thought i was still waiting and I'd been done all along. It was 11 a.m and here i thought i had even had the surgery yet. I didn't get to talk to Dr. G but my SIL had talked to him and told her that the surgery went well. It only took 45min but that it only took that long because he was having a hard time getting in and tying they knot. But he assured her that he got it. She even said that he was more excited about it than us. She said he was telling her how he couldn't wait to do more. So i was then taken home around 1something. I returned a few calls and texts and mostly slept the the rest of the day. I was rather sore had a little bit of pain but taking alieve seems to help. He gave me a prescription for vicodin but i absolutely hate the way it makes me feel. I am feeling better today. I am still sore but not hurting like i was yesterday. I've been walking a bit around the house. I was told that would help a lot. I go in on Thursday for a followup with Dr. G and will have more details (from my view anyway) then. I want to thank you all for your prayers, e-mails, texts and calls. and i certainly want to thank and praise God b/c i couldn't have gone through it without him. I thank him for being in the operating room with me and guiding the doctors hands. He is truly an awesome God.








here are a couple of pics.






Incision sights (there are 4) (sorry if TMI) My TAC was done laproscopically rather than the traditional .








My socks ;o) (sorry didn't get a pic of the gown, but it wasn't as cute anyway)

Wonderful news on the surgery!!! You are right the socks are cute!.. I had laproscopy done in 2001 to remove some cysts on my ovaries so I dont know if it 'feels' the same as this, but I know I was ok within 2 or 3 days. Hoping the same for you...WOOHOO for the TAC!!!! <3

I am so happy everything went well! What an awesome God we serve! Now take it easy for the next few days, drink lots of water, and try to walk a little bit every hour. I didn't take the vicodin either just tylenol extra strength. Sending hugs your way. Here's to the beginning of your expected end! Luv ya girlie!

I'm glad it went well ( according to Dr.G at least) and that you're not in too much pain. I got to wear those same socks this week when i went in for my second HSG test. I wanted to take them home but couldn't figure otu how to sneak them out since I was wearing flip-flops (=

Andrea said...

Praise God! What wonderful news that you are recovering and feeling well. I can't wait for you to get to talk with Dr. G. yourself on Thursday. I'm sure he documented everything...maybe even pics for himself, as you were so brave in letting him do his first TAC with you. My Dr. friends always get excited when they get to do a new procedure.

As Marie said, drink lots of water. Especially when taking pain med's :)

Sending you more prayers and love
