I took the medication to start the process the night before. No much happened, but I'm sure it began things. I took the second dose in the morning. It cleared my bowel almost immediately. I then got ready for the hospital. By the time I got to the car and adjusted myself and lifed a cheek, I think I soaked an entire pad. Soaked #2 while waiting in emergency. Got put in emergency hallway waiting for about 8 hours..... 3 grannies got hip replacements while I waited, meanwhile I hadn't eaten since 8pm the night before. Just before being moved to a room to wait for a half hour before surgery I passed the fetus. I could identify all parts except the sex. Everything was perfect and intact. I think seeing it while a little disconcerting helped the coping process. Hubby looked too. i expected him to break down, but he was a trooper. He was ever faithful and never left my side except to go buy me another pair of panties and a sodoku book from the giftshop, as well as to fill my prescription from the OB while we waited. I had zero cramping or pain. Just the feeling of "activity". Finally i got to surgery. I was nervous. I couldn't believe how fast the anasthetic kicked in. Like being hit on the head with a fry pan. I got a little weapy just before I completely passed out, but I was reminded to "breathe" and I was gone. I felt like I was dreaming to music, but by then I was in recovery and was told "ok, wake up now" and I did. My head felt heavy as did my feet for about 10 minutes. But I was able to talk and make sense. The only thing I felt immediately after was a slight sting from the catheter and a stiffness of my inner thigh from the stirrups. Still no pain. The OB said there was a fair bit of tissue, so it was good I had the D&C done, but very little bleeding and that it all went well. I was able to walk to the bathroom very quickly. Was able to snack with no nausea. So was able to go home pretty much within an hour. I was a little light headed and my legs a little rubbery, but otherwise felt fine. The entire hospital staff were wonderful, kind, caring. Considering what an awful thing I had to go through, It wasn't a bad experience. I'm home with no pain. However as I was advised, after I tried to do a few things around the house I began to feel a little "tugging" So my body is reminding me to relax and not do much.
