Ron followed me down at 10:15 for me 2nd surgery, which began at 10:30 am. Again, I had to roll over onto my stomach onto the operating bed. Alittle more difficult this time with all the things attached to me. And again, I was awake for the entire procedure. This time I really wish they would have put me out because the pain was worse. I felt like I was going to pass out...I lost feeling in my neck, shoulders, arms and hands, and I tried to tell the assistant who was sitting right by my head, but I couldn't talk. Ohhh....it sucked! The assistant, and another nurse were awesome, and helped me thru the pain. I believe they said that at a certain part when I felt so horrible, that some patients do experience what I was going through.
They sucked out the entire bloot clot, and inserted a balloon where 2 stents were put in place to open the left Iliac vein. Here is a picture of what happened:
Kylie and Tony brought Logan with them, and they were at the hospital to see my by 1:30 pm. Kylie and Tony brought me some new slippers (which are the best slippers I've ever had), a 3 musketeers, and a fridge magnet. We all visited until 4:00, when they went down to the cafeteria, and I ate my lunch. No physical restrictions now. I can use the toilet! No More Bed Pan Thank God!
Ron, Logan, Kylie and Tony came back to my room at 4:30 and stayed a bit longer, the Logan and Kylie and tony headed back home. Ron stayed with me until 8:20 because the nurses said they are going to move me back up to the 3rd floor, and he was going to wait until he knew what room. I told him I would text him so he could get home at a good time and get a good night sleep. He got home at 9:10. They took me in my bed up to room 319 and I was all settled in by 10:45 pm. Was only woke up twice by nurses during the night.
