Fibroids, Storytelling

Fibroids Testimonial: The Recovery Process from Myomectomy Surgery, Part 1 by Denise N. Fyffe

The Recovery Process from Myomectomy Surgery

It’s October, almost one year after my Myomectomy surgery, which is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus. I have experienced different things during my recovery. At the moment, I am feeling strong and for the most part am fully engaged.

My recovery process is going good; however, from the very first hour the process started out unusual.

Hour 1

I woke up immediately after my Myomectomy procedure. I recall the green room and the movement of the gurney as they started to wheel me back up to the ward. Then, I went back to sleep. Later, I woke up when they settled me in the recovery room. It occurred to me that I was directly in front of the nurses station and not inside of the room, which I had been assigned down the hall. Sleep claimed me again.

I woke up many times after that. Every time a nurse came to check my oxygen, my blood pressure, to change the drip or the blood bag; I woke up. It was later on that I learned that my blood pressure was checked almost every 15 minutes.

I grew even more concerned when I noticed all the bandages on my arms.

More information is provided in my book. See details below.
