I have been in hospital for four days. I really hate to be in hospital. Even though I’m there my mind is with my children, I know that my mother is with them but still I am worried.
My last menstrual period was last June 27, 2012. I decided to see my ob gyne. She advised me for an ultra sound. And the result needs to be curettage. I was scheduled to have a Dilatation and curettage on Tuesday morning first case, so I admitted Monday. On my schedule my pulse rate goes down L so I was given some meds prior my procedure, until my internal medicine deferred my procedure. She reschedules it on Wednesday morning. Here comes the moment, all my vital signs are stable. During the D&C my pulse rate goes down again, ECG machine attach on me during the procedure. I stayed in OB or and Recovery for five hours.hayz!!! My family already worried. I know God is with me. When I woke up in recovery room my anaesthesia still there, I was vomiting and I feel dizzy. Until I was back on my room, still I feel nauseated, maybe because I was fasting for how many hours and I feel hungry.
What is Dilatation and Curettage?
According to Wikipedia (Dilation and Curettage) refers to the dilation (widening/opening) of the cervix and surgical removal of part of the lining of the uterus and/or contents of the uterus by scraping and scooping (curettage). It is a therapeutic gynaecological procedure as well as a rarely used method of first trimester abortion.
D&C normally refers to a procedure involving a curette, also called sharp curettage. However, some sources use the term D&C to refer more generally to any procedure that involves the processes of dilation and removal of uterine contents, which includes the more common suction curettage procedures of manual and electric vacuum aspiration.
I feel better now.. Thanks God. Next week I will get my biopsy result. Hopefully, the result will be negative.
