[IP] Hello all and I am home!!!!
Hi all my pumping and parents of pumpers and want
to be pumper friends!! I am done my surgery for thyroid and have been home
since Wednesday, have talked with a few of you, and just wanted to update all on
surgery. All went well, except for the after affects of the
anesthesia. After they promised me that they would add something to my IV
to help prevent the vomiting, they didn't do it good enough, because I was
barely in my room after the recovery room, and lost it. IT was painful,
especially after just having my throat chopped open (sorry, but that's my
opinion! hehe), but they gave me a shot of something and it stopped until the
next bout with it. My blood sugars were not the best, but I chalked it up
to 1. stress, and 2, a bad site which I didn't[ know about until Thursday
PM. Sugars would not go below 200, until I got sick of it and changed site
last night, been back to normal ever since! Yippee.
Surgery went well, they removed a nodule that was
about the size of a bolder (marbles/boulders) and rushed it to lab, where it
came back negative. Then they have sent it to pathology to run full
tests. My neck is stiff, but getting better slowly. The worst part
is/was sleeping at home. I have a reclining couch and that's where I ended
up sleeping the first night in major discomfort. Hubby was on other end to
help if needed. Last night was great, slept like a baby and was sleeping
on my side etc, which I could not do the first day.
So all in all, I am happy, got home from hospital
on Wednesday, came to work Thursday and Friday (today) both, and having
fun. My voice is raspy, and I cough a lot, but warm coffee or tea, all
decaf of course, helps tremendously.
Sally, I vaguely recall under anesthesia, your
sister Sue talking to me in the recovery room!! She said she was your
sister, and I hope I didn't say anything awful while under the
anesthesia!! I will email her alter to make sure!
Thanks to all for the prayers and well wishes, it
means a lot to me.
