Population Control

I was neutered Monday morning, hence this being a slow blog week.

Apparently, I should have experienced mild abdominal discomfort easily assuaged with paracetmol and ibuprofen. The first 24 hours I should have been uncomfortable, but back to normal by Day 5.

Yeah right.

Let's summarise my experience with 'OW!' and leave it at that.

I'm not sorry I had the op and I'm looking forward to test driving my newly sterilised bits....anon. Very anon.

In the meantime, I am taking it slow watching trashy television (of which there is a great deal) and reading trashy books (of which I have many).

May I just say the Great Ursus and his lovely, are fabulous people? I will be having words with the Powers that Be to ensure that there will be stars shining in the Heavens just for them.

  1. I bet it was a bloke who said that the first 24 hours would be uncomfortable. They just don't understand what its like.

    Well, not until they've seen you white as a sheet, curled up in a ball, sobbing and in a cold sweat praying for the sweet release of death. Then they start to get it!

    I hope you're feeling better soon, and here's to the test drive of your newly sterilised bits!

    Lots of love xx

  2. The male version is just as painful.

  3. beth ~ as fun as it would be to go on about blokes' perception of pain...I think it was just how the anaesethic and the op affected me. I do know women who were right as rain after the op. All of the staff who looked after me were women.

    dave ~ bless your heart. Having a vasectomy is painful, no two ways about it. A friend of mine partially described it as being hit in the nuts with a midget with a concrete helmet on the end of a demolition ball. He says he melted two bags of frozen peas in an hour.

    I'm not one to play Pain Top Trumps, but I don't think that was quite at this level.

    I had to be re-admitted for overnight care and some industrial strength painkillers.

  4. Have I told you about my kidney stones?

  5. I've heard of armed neutrality, but what you appear to be proposing is more akin to neutered carnality!

  6. dave ~ my ex-H had kidney stones when I was pregnant. He was rolling round the floor in agony, so yes, I think kidney stones are closer.

    cogidubnus ~ I think of it more like unfettered carnality. Or I will do, once my innards stop feeling like someone with a blunt stick gave everything a quick stir and a beating just to make sure.

  7. Not been around the blogs recently so only just seen this. Hope you have made a full recovery by now and that the trashy tv hasn't done irreparable damage to your brain.

  8. sanddancer ~ good to see you about again. I have just been to see the pharmacist who has told me in no uncertain terms: no poking, squeezing, tugging or itching.

    I will be having words with my GP. I was supposed to be bouncing back in 5 days. This is Day 12, and I can't even muster the energy to bounce in my bed.
