Long Night

Hi All

As you know, I had an outpatient procedure yesterday.  I was in so much pain.  Less today but bad.  I was up for nearly 24 hours - got up at 4:30 yesterday morning.  The pain kept me up till about 3:30 this morning.  I am bone tired and hurting.

The plan was to cut away tissue as well as laser away skin.  As I have said in an earlier blog entry, the  lining between the vaginal wall and the bladder as well as the intestines is very thin.  The doctor had to cut short the procedure because he saw my intestines.  Thank God he did not puncture or nick them.  He had to sew me up and be done.  I feel completely rotor-rootered in my lower pelvic region.

My last blog about dilators is appropriate to this post as well.  Not only have I shrunk in diameter, I have also shrunk in length.  This makes examinations as well as procedures more difficult.  Also I think this is one reason of why I am hurting so bad.  I cannot use the dilator for 8 weeks - bummer since I finally had talked myself into using them.

There was nothing to be done on the outside but it is super swollen, it burns to pee, stand up, sit up and lay down.  Can't get comfy at all.  I am wondering if the reason is the one above. My mom doesn't remember all what the doc said and I have other questions so I plan to call and leave a message for him to call me.

When you have bladder cystitis, you pee a lot.  There is a method to it or you will have to pee again as soon as you stand up.  You have to sit there and  force all the pee out - this can take a couple of minutes, but worth it so that you do not  have to immediately pee again.  Every time I peed through the night, I just sat there and said a constant prayer to ask for it not to hurt and sting so much.  The prayer was answered.  Thank you God. And to all those praying for me, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.

More  later -
