Well what can I say? So many lovely well wishing friends here, for my spc op. Amazing! I know I am amongst good friends.
Well, just 2 days after the op and I`m doing great!
As you know, I was extremely nervous about the op and to be honest, I was scared silly!
But I needen`t have been…it went smashing.
We all got up at 4.15am and got to the hospital for 6.45am, as I was being
You know what time I actually went to theatre?..
2.30pm!!! I know, chuffing rediculous, eh?
I asked why I had to be in so early and the consultant urologist said he likes all his patients checked in and ready for him.
I hadnt had anything to eat since 5.pm the day before and only a few sips of water in the am.
So,I woke on the morning of the op after a lovely dream…it was so happy and uplifting…I dreampt I was going to Spain with my carer Bev. I said to her I am going to ask my mum for some pocket money. My dear mum actually passed away 12 years ago! I went to see her at the bingo, where she went everyday. She gave me £20 and I said it wasnt enough. Then I asked someone else, who turned out to be Judith from Eggheads…the first millionaire on
Who wants to be a Millionaire?
I have no money for you! So then I said to Bev,
Come on. Well get a visa card each. We
ll have 17 days to pay it off!
So there we were, sunhats on and suitcases in tow…and yes, I was walking too…and we headed for the plane…then I woke up!
This put me a wonderful mood and I told the nurses at the hospital and the porter who took me to theatre. We were all singing
Viva Espana! It was hilarious. I needed no sedative, no pre-med as they said I was chilled out enough!!!
An hour later I awoke in the delivery room. My breathing was a bit iffy, but it settled within 20 mins.
back to the ward and my bed. At 5.30pm,I had a lovely meal of beef and mushroom pie, mashed potatoes, carrot and swede, followed by apple sponge and custard. That sated my hungry tum!
Then home yesterday and the only pain I`ve had was due to a pubic hair getting caught in the dressing!
So yeh, guys, i`m doing well. Been sitting out with my summer white cropped leggings, white cheesecloth blouse, back and silver jewellery and feel champion.
Suprapubic catheter? Chuffin fantastic!
