Or is it day 3? I didn't have the surgery until around 2:30 Friday afternoon! They asked me to arrive at 9:30, which I did and began the wait. Fortunately for me, I had taken 2 darvocet when I woke up, along with my bp med because I didn't know how long it would be before they doped me up. By the time they took me back, I was starting to hurt. They put me in this rock hard bed and told me surgery was delayed and it would several hours! That is when I told them "I'm an FM patient in chronic pain and I take pain meds everyday so you had better get me something or it is going to get ugly". They were more than willing to give me something, but the tiny little anesthesiologist asked "Do you have any medical problems other than the FM" and then laughed and said I guess FM is enough. When she asked where I hurt, I said "my upper back and shoulders really bad today" and her response? "I hurt there really bad too, especially my neck, I probably hurt worse. I wonder if that is what I have"? I could have DECKED her after that comment! However, she gave me something that helped. Then she started telling me about the pinched nerve her neck, yadda, yadda, and I looked at her and said "do you suffer from debilitating fatigue? Not the kind where you can only do one load of clothes after work or you decide to set the table and call for carryout". I mean the kind where getting out of bed isn't an option - you are stuck in there whether you like it or not". Then I said "they can probably fix your neck - chances are, they can't fix me". Finally around 2:30 they came to get me and this wonder nurse said "honey, you are my fibro patient" and I said yes and she held up a syringe and said "I have narcotics" I looked at her and laughed and said "where the hell have you been all day"! She said "I don't why they didn't give you this earlier". I told her about the pain mgmt doc disaster and she called him a quack and gave me the name of someone with real compassion! I am going to call him Monday. I am still hurting a lot more than I expected. I was right, the pain level is definitely somewhere between the tubal and my c-sections. It is akin to the second day c-section pain only it high up on my stomach, not the biknin cut of c-sections. I also think the surgery exacerbated the FM because in addition to the surgery pain, my entire body hurts! Several of my tender points are screaming, as well as behind my arms! I got my RX straightened out at the pharmacy and will call for a reflll when they open. I am thinking about taking tomrrow off too, I was given the ok to drive today, so I think I'll run up to pick up my meds and some popsicles and determine how I feel from that experience. THANK you for all of the prayers. I was irritated with the long wait, but my care was excellent and my sutures appear to be healing nicely. I have only been midly hungry and I think this might be psychological in part because it comes and goes and I can easily forget about it. There hasn't been any nausea which is great. When they brought me out of anesthesia Friday, I looked around and laughed and said "Am I skinny yet"? *LOL*.
