Surgery Day 2/27/15
My surgery was scheduled for 10am. Me and my friend arrived at 9am. I was fitted for my wafer and I met with Dr. Lee. Went over the details of the surgery again. Then the nurses escorted me to my VIP room. This is the room that I was assigned to for my recovery. It was really nice. It has plenty of room for guests plus a big flat screen plasma tv with awesome cable (plenty of english speaking channels)… I was really impressed. I was just grateful to get my own room. After I put my belongings in my room and changed, I was escorted to the operating room. At this point, I was a little nervous, especially when I was lying on the operating table. But the anesthesiologist was so nice, he kept reassuring me everything is going to be ok. That really made me feel better that he said that. After I got the anesthesia, I was out like a light.
When I woke up, felt like I just took a long nap. I was groggy but thank goodness I was not nauseas. I was in my room and they kept telling me to please stay awake. It wasn’t easy because I really wanted to go back to sleep. I didn’t have any pain. My head was wrapped really tight and I basically just felt a lot of compression. I was spitting up some blood which I was totally prepared for. I was very congested though. I had tubes in my nose… wasn’t that easy to breathe but I was just grateful I could still breathe through my mouth and that I wasn’t in pain. The doctor came to visit me after surgery to see if I was ok… I gave him a thumbs up because obviously I couldn’t talk at this time. They gave me a cute little writing board with a magic marker so I can communicate with my friend and the nurses. The first night was a little rough, but the nurses were very nice and attentive. Everytime I buzzed them for something, they were so patient to help me. They know a little English… good enough to be able to help me when I needed assistance. Didn’t get to sleep much at all. maybe 2 hours at the most. But I appreciate how the staff tried their best to make me feel as comfortable as possible
