Wow. That was intense. And after all that- my doctor gave me one Vicodin "to go". I ended up calling her begging for something because I was sure I was close to dying.
From my experience (had the ablation done in the office/clinic), and from friends who have had theirs done in the hospital- it all sucks either way. My cervix was uncooperative (go figure), so the dilation hurt like a biatch, on top of the ablation itself. But it's over, and I'm done. I'm glad I did it, and hopefully I'm one of the 80% it works for. It definitely is intense- but if you can suck up one day of pain, it could absolutely be worth it.
For anyone who doesn't know what an ablation is- they cauterize your uterine lining. Like burn the biatch off. Yes, really. Why would anyone want to have that done? 3 simple words, my friend. No more periods. Ever.
Anyway- I am much better today. Jaysen has been a saint. When he got home from school yesterday, he could see I was in a significant amount of pain, and was afraid to touch me. I told him a hug would make me feel better, so he gave my outstretched arm a squeeze.
When I was napping, he would come over every 20 minutes or so, pat my head gently and say "I t's okay Mommy, your huggy-bear is here". Melt...
