Diane, I know it hurts and you might want to stay down for longer than the doc recommends to make sure it heals. Even when you feel it is ok, its best to be on the safe side and take it easy. I'm sorry you had to go through that, there is no way to know how bad it will hurt, there is just no way to explain it. It feels like they are doing what they are doing, which is gross. I hope you feel better soon and I'm glad your mood is better. The bad part is over and you will have results soon, they are pretty quick on it. Like Des says, don't feel you have to reply. You need to stay on your side so it clots up and stops bleeding. I'm glad they gave you meds and I hope you can get to sleep sone to help it heal. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
