Yeah, that was me too. I had to hold a pillow on my midsection to cough or laugh. But at that point, I didn't have much to laugh about! It hurt and they also taught me how to roll out of bed sideways. Thank goodness you won't have to deal with all of that tomorrow.dweck said:Eileen had hers out when we were in our first years of marriage. After the procedure, she couldn't laugh. Was absolutely unable to laugh w/out searing pain. ((This was the NON-laproscopic version))
But she needed to walk.
And so I remember walking around the hospital w/her, which, because she couldn't laugh, suddenly had become the most hilarious place ever. All those portraits of stodgy doctors on the wall?? **snee** Looking embalmed?? **snerk** And the squeakiddy wheel on the med cart?? **hee** That then wobbled like a supermarket cart **fhhhhe**
It wasn't long before Eileen told me not to visit anymore.....
I had those crazy shivers during my c-section...my hubby thought it was just my nerves but it was the medication. I almost :vomit: right on Lanna as I was breastfeeding her afterward! Thankfully I didn't until she was out of my arms again.MidwestGirl said:so true...and unfortunately I always :vomit:Melissa said:Everyone's different I know - Dan mentioned being "chilly" coming out of anesthesia. Every time I've come out of general anesthesia I have shivered violently. Like, I feel like I'm going to shake myself into pieces violently, and no amount of warm blankets took the edge off.
So, just be prepared for that possibility - I didn't know what the heck was happening the first time and it freaked me out!
