Well, tomarrow is my surgery date to have my hysterectomy! I spoke w/ my ob/gyn yesterday to discuss pain management since i have been worried about it all. He is assuring me that i will be ok and that he will NOT allow me to be in alot of pain. We discuss how everytime im admitted, (several times a yr for my UC) the hospital always gives me dilauded (sp)? and it just does NOT work for whatever reason....I always have to ask for more which always leads to problems with nurses and doctors alike....
We discussed maybe trying a morphine pump and if that did not work trying to use dilauded and demeral in intervals (which is what they used after my csection that worked well for PM.
Anyways, please wish pain free thoughts for me, and im praying for a easy recovery!
