Just an update to let everyone know that my surgery yesterday went fine with no complications of any kind.
I got some pain meds at the hospital in my IV right after I woke up, and one 5 mg oxycodone at that time, but I haven't taken anything else other than ibuprofin (shhh! don't tell my gastroenterologist about that!). And today, the only new pain I have is a very sore throat from the breathing tube the anesthesiologist put in.
No cramps, no bleeding, nada.
My legs are still a little wobbly from the anesthesia, which always seems to linger for me, and I'm even more tired than normal, but I have to say that it's a better day-after-surgery than I've ever had before!! Oh, and this is the first of my seven surgeries that I didn't wake up from the anesthesia in a major asthma attack. Woohoo!! :-)
I hope to get the biopsy results when I see my OB for my June 18 post-surgical check up, but it's unlikely the polyps were anything but benign.
And hopefully this will put an end to my trouble keeping my iron levels up!!
