I had a lot of anxiety over this procedure, not because I was having doubts but because I was afraid of complications from the anesthesia. I'm not usually worried about stuff like that but it really, really freaked me out.
I went in, did my paperwork & urine sample, then waited. And waited. My surgery was scheduled for 9:30, but I didn't go into the OR until closer to 10:30. The IV was very uncomfortable, especially if I bent my arm (they put it inside my elbow instead of my hand). I started crying when they put the oxygen mask over my face - more because I was scared of the anesthesia than anything else. I did fight the anesthesia as much as I could LOL And that's all I remember until I started waking up. When I first started to come around, the only thing I could really focus on was how much my throat hurt from the breathing tube. I wanted to cough but it just hurt. I was trying to hard to wake up all the way but I kept drifting back to sleep. I said something about nausea, and I think they gave me something for it. I don't know - I was out of it. I woke up again and managed to stay conscious. Throat still hurt and I was sore from the IUD removal. I couldn't feel my incisions at all. I still don't feel any pain there (in my belly button and above my c-section scar). I wasn't even sure they actually did the tubal until someone came to check the area. I was still loopy, and they gave me some ginger ale and graham crackers. I was so hungry, I tried to eat the crackers but the dry mouth was so bad, I thought I'd choke. By the time I finished my ginger ale, they had husband on the phone to come get me. I was a bit dizzy for a while if I stood up too quickly, but I hit McDonalds on the way home. It took me forever to eat and it made me crazy because I was ravenous. All I cared about is food. LOL
I don't know what they gave me for pain while under - whatever it is must have been strong because I'm still not feeling anything there. They did not give me a prescription for anything and just told me to take Advil or Tylenol as needed.It took me about 2 hours to eat my lunch. I did eat junk - I didn't care, and I didn't count points. It had been 22 hours since I'd last eaten and I was freaking hungry. I did eat the M&Ms I bought last year, finally. I didn't really enjoy them, with the cotton-mouth and all.
