Back from D & C

First of all thank you for all your support in my previous thread. As usual, you had lots of kind words and support to offer.

Well technically I did not have a D & C, it was a D & E, fairly similar thing I think though. I got to the hospital about 8am and was taken down to theatre about 12. I was home by 6, cause I got up, ate and went to the loo by myself and I was so ready to come home. The whole procedure was not as bad as I had worked myself up for which was a real relief. The staff at the hospital were wonderful and so sensitive with me. It was as positive an expereince that it could have been under the circumstances. I had a few tears as I said goodbye to Dh when they took me to theatre but other than that I held it together quite well. I kept focused by thinking of DH and DD and DS. My Dh was waiting right outside the door when I came out of recovery and I was so relieved to see him, that I had a few tears again.

Now im home, I feel a bit numb, and dizzy. Had a few more tears but feeling more positive about moving on.

Thanks for listening, I hope you are all as well as can be expected.

I had the same thing, a D&E. I could have written what you posted. I hope this helps you gain some closure and begin to heal. :bighug:

Hi again, im glad your back home and recovering. Its a strange feeling post op, i remember relief that it wasnt so bad but i think i was more upset than ever that evening, i made myself physically sick from crying. Its so emotionally draining. Now today is over with you may have a bad night like me but it will get better slowly. (((HUGS)))
