sorry you had a crappy time too, but glad it wasn't just me! I did have my bed changed, but not my gown which was soaked in blood! I didn't get the offer of help to wash, bath or shower at all! Catheter was only painful going in because the dam nurse didn't like doing catheters and was all flustered and after 3 attempts finally got someone who knew what they were doing! That will be so wrong if they could have drained it rather than putting you through all that! Take care and here's to speedy peaceful recoveries at home with the help of our men! P.s I bet you were going mad through sleep deprivation the amount of nights you were in!!
So basically, my op was a success, but the before and after care has been shockingly bad! My advice, never agree to surgery on a weekend, because your not being looked after by a proper surgical team on a surgical ward! Wow I feel better for getting it off my chest, I bet you wished you'd never asked now haha! I should be on the mend by now, but still feel bleugh! I don't like to complain, but once I've got the energy I will put in a complaint about the complete lack of care and consideration! I dread to think what state I would be in now if my surgery had been as complicated as yours! Have you had your histology report yet? (sorry it's in loads of post there's a 800 word limit!
Friday I had to go back to hospital, thankfully my bladder was working fine now...again complete lack of confidentiality! Got home Friday and my GP rang to say there was a prescription waiting for me for my infection. i explained I'd already been given something from the hospital and they said it was something different I needed to take both. Thought it a bit strange, because when I googled them, they were both for the same thing. I felt quite perky Friday until I took the 2 different antibiotics, then went downhill again quite fast! This morning I was really ill and throwing up, so my hubby took my pills to the pharmacy to ask if I should be on both! Pharmacy horrified I was taking both and said no wonder I was ill, one lots strong enough, but two! to be continued..
That night I had to be sedated because I was crying hysterically due to exhaustion and the continual noise! Monday morning they said I still couldn't go home, but I refused to stay a minute longer and called my husband to get me and I was sent home with the catheter still in! Felt so much better Tuesday morning waking up to hear my baby saying mama in his cot, but unfortunately I collapsed, scaring my hubby half to death, so had to get the doctor out: result I had a mild urine infection. Wednesday back to the hospital to have catheter out, was there for 8 hours because my bladder wasn't draining properly, diagnosis: serious urine infection and antibiotics prescribed. Complete lack of confidentiality, I think half of Devon knows about my toilet habits! Thursday I slept all day! to be cont
To get over the noise issue, they told my husband to take me to the day room! 11.30pm, the girl was still on her mobile phone yapping at the top of her voice and I was still bleeding and very upset! eventually after I'd sat in the toilet crying for 1/2 hour a nurse shut her up! By the morning my bladder had given up, but they didn't believe me, it wasn't until 11am they decided to scan me and realised I had a litre of fluid in my bladder, so they put in a temporary catheter drained me then took it out. 2 hours later I said my bladder was full again, again they wouldn't beleive me and said it couldn't possibly be in 2 hours. When they finally scanned me I had 900mls of fluid in my bladder so I had a permanent catheter put in and was told to stay in another night!...to be continued
When I woke from surgery I was really calm and relaxed and was the only one in the recovery room. THe nurse said the cyst was large, but they'd saved my ovary and I had keyhole surgery with 3 holes. It all went downhill when I got taken up to the ward. Because I'd gone in on a saturday they had fitted me in on any old ward and I was the only one who had had surgery! Everyone had visitors and it was so noisy, I couldn't sleep. One girl in particular who was a bit rough round the edges was being really noisy and having phone sex with her boyfriend! 3 hours after surgery I was crying hysterically asking to go home because i couldn't recover with the noise. Unfortunately one of my wounds had burst open and I was bleeding quite heavily and they wouldn't let me home...to be continued
Hi, thanks for thinking of me, I hope you're feeling better! Well where do I start! I got to hospital for 11 and no-one spoke to us for 2 1/2 hours, by which time I'd worked myself up into a complete state! I saw the anesthetist and asked for a pre-med and they refused because there wasn't a bed available for me! so that wasn't the best start! I then saw the surgeon, who seemed to think that because I already had 3 children it didn't really matter if I lost an ovary! Me and my husband said hang on a minute, we want more children so can you please do your best to save the ovary! When I walked down to surgery I was a complete state and really really cross over the whole pre-med, then they just knocked me out without even telling me...to be continued!
