Topic: RE: TMI but...
I started my period the day of surgery! It was so embarrassing. The nurse and nurse's aide were helping me out of bed so I could walk around and I was like "I started my period". The nurse was sweet and helped me put on my undies and a pad. The male nurse's aide changed my bedding and brought me a new gown. I was mortified but they made me feel better.
My parents had gone home to rest after I was out of surgery but knocked out, so I called my mom and was like "BRING ME PADS!!" lol.
My cycles have always been inconsistent. I just started my period on Saturday. Sunday, I had HORRIBLE cramps. I hadn't had cramps like that since high school. I broke out into a cold sweat, I was nauseated. Plus, I've been bleeding very, very heavily (which is a pain but also has me slightly worried...I never bleed this much). I'm just chaulking it up to my body/hormones freaking out from everything it's been through, though.
Starting: 284. Op Day: 264. Current: 185.80. Goal: 180.
Main goal: To be able to take the "morbidly" out.
