On my second night I am a bit light headed. No bowel movement or gas as yet, so no food only liquids. My right hand is swollen, probably because it is sporting two main lines. My veins have been playing hide and seek with the doctors and nurses, so I got stuck a lot. Especially as they run antibiotics, blood thinners, pain meds, fluids etc.

I lost count of how many saline drips I got. During my myomectomy fibroid surgery, the doctors said I lost a lot of blood. They had to give me blood products and about two litres of blood. That’s also why I am so weak and groggy.

The next day, Dr. Rishi Chand, continues his assessment and asks how I feel. By now my agitation was growing, which meant I was feeling better and I wanted to go home except I had not yet peed, pooped or passed gas on my own. I felt like a darn newborn baby, lying in wait at the NICU.

More information is provided in my book. See details below.
