I opted to do the fibroid removal procedure – myomectomy – at St. Josephs hospital in Jamaica…thinking they will be cheaper. Let’s see if that is really so. Due to delays I arrive about two hours before my procedure, hungry and anxious. I pay my down payment, am admitted and after an hour’s wait – of which I am not amused – I am shown my room.
Then the needles come out, I put my big girl panties on – figuratively, because all I really have on is a thin piece a cloth with my butt out :). Then the nurses and the anaesthesiologist, Dr. Christine Stephens, and my veins play hide and seek. God I hate being stuck. Thank God they did it in my room because, veins are normally harder to find in a cold operating room.
The anesthesiologist talks to me, puts me at ease and after two painful sticks and 15 minutes of searching one pops up willingly on the opposite arm. God does hear silent prayers. It hurt like hell and its all I could do not to strangle the poor woman. In no time I am in the operating theater, drugged and zoned out while giving Drs. Chand and Dr. Stephens some ‘last minute’ mischief.
Then I am out, kicked into the abyss. Unconscious to both light and the darkness that caressed me for hours. I remember nothing. No dreams, no visions. No sensation from the evil realm and none from the Godly one either.
Soon…my eyes pop open to see the same green walls of the operating room. I look around briefly and sense people around me. I too feel myself drift back to the abyss.
