Surgery Was A Breeze

Yesterday I had the oophorectomy surgery (ovary removal).  It's funny but after all I have been through I was not even nervous at all.  It seemed like no big deal.  Normally surgery would freak me out but after having breast cancer and all that comes with it, other things don't seem like such a big deal. 

My husband took me to surgery yesterday.  The nursing staff was great and once they put medication in my IV I didn't remember a thing.  I didn't even remember being wheeled into to operating room.  Next thing I remember I was waking up.  I didn't really have pain either.   That was a surprise!

My biggest thrill was not having nausea and vomiting after surgery.  Usually I get super sick from anesthesia and throw up for a whole day.  It was a pleasant surprise to feel OK after surgery and not feel like puking!  That put a smile on my face!

I was home from the hospital by 11:30am and spent the afternoon chilling out on my couch.  I napped off and on and woke up feeling rested this morning.  I have not had to take any pain medication either. I could not have asked for a better surgery experience!  I am glad it's over with though!
