Fibroids testimonial – The Recovery Process from Myomectomy Surgery, Part 4 by Denise N. Fyffe

My first trip to the doctor was OK. The doctor removed my bandages and told me to come back the following week. By then, I developed Atopic Dermatitis around my wound – the rash from hell. Because the adhesive from the bandages was still on my skin and in parts I dared not mention, small bumps developed around the cut. They eventually turned black and I was mortified.

My mom, God bless her soul, wanted to baby me after my fibroid surgery. But, I could not live without my internet and I had books to write; so, after a day of reading novels on my tablet, I was properly bored. By the following day, I drove myself home, cleaned my wound and propped myself up in bed.

Week 1

I still maintain that I was actually strong enough to drive myself home after my myomectomy surgery. I managed to go to the pharmacy, buy fruits and survived my uncle’s bumpy ride home. I stayed with my mom the first two days, just so she would not worry about me. Then, I went home and spent the following six weeks taking care of myself.

My uncle came to take me home and to the pharmacy for my medication. But I had to wait yet again. He finally came after I talked myself out of walking out of the hospital and driving myself home. Even though I was strong enough to walk, the procedure at St. Joseph’s is that they wheelchair you to your ride.

Day 1

When I woke up, I wondered about my dual surgery and why I was not feeling any discomfort where I had a tumor or growth; separate from the fibroids. The following morning when my anesthesiologists came to check on me, I woke up again. She explained that I had lost nearly half of my blood and the surgery had to be cut short because of the complications that developed.

This explained why I was placed in front of the nurses station and also why my poor mother looked so distressed. I was in critical condition. 😦

I was also very thirsty. I…

Hour 1

I woke up immediately after my Myomectomy procedure. I recall the green room and the movement of the gurney as they started to wheel me back up to the ward. Then, I went back to sleep. Later, I woke up when they settled me in the recovery room. It occurred to me that I was directly in front of the nurses station and not inside of the room, which I had been assigned down the hall. Sleep claimed me again.

I woke up many times…
